Fixed issues


In some instances, if you connected your BlackBerry device to another device using an HDMI cable, the audio did not behave as expected.


If you changed your mobile network settings so that your device connected to a 2G mobile network (such as GSM), a cell broadcast message might have displayed on your device every two or three minutes.


Pictures added to contacts on the BlackBerry device were not synchronized to Microsoft Outlook.


In some instances while playing media files, audio might have been clipped for a fraction of a second.


Time settings may not have been updated if you changed the time zone in the Date and Time settings.

Known issues


In some instances, sharing a web page in a browser using NFC may result in the BlackBerry device entering sleep mode.


In some instances, BBM location attachments may not be received on another SDK device as expected.


Pictures added to Gmail contacts on the BlackBerry device do not appear in the contact’s details until you re-enter the contact details. After you exit and open the contact application the contact pictures appear as expected.


The BlackBerry device does not connect to the 3G network on bootup. As a workaround, you can force the BlackBerry device to 3G mode.


In some instances, BBM contacts registered in the games app do not appear in the games contact list.

In some instances, sending a contact card without an avatar results in a white space instead of the default contact image.


In some instances, the BlackBerry device did not automatically restart after long pressing the power button and tapping Restart.


In some instances, the date format shown in the Settings app does not match the format in the date picker.


In some instances, BBM may display a black screen when you open the details for a contact in a BBM chat window.


In some instances, NFC activity may cause the backlight to go out or the device to lock for a few seconds. As a workaround, hold the power button down for two or more seconds.


In some instances, you may not be able to send calendar attachments using BBM.


In some instances, BBM messages that you receive do not trigger the audio and LED notification.


In some instances, purchases made on BlackBerry World using PayPal can result in a transaction error.


Some games might hang on startup.


The thumbnail images in the camera application show the last screen capture taken rather than the last picture taken.


When a notification (such as entering Development Mode) is sent, the notification area of the Hub causes the red LED to constantly flash.
Workaround: Wait for the notification to time out after 10 to 15 minutes or turn off the LED in the Settings app.
