BlackBerry Priv is one of those handsets that arrived too late on the market and with a price tag that made everything much more difficult even for die-hard fans of the company once known as RIM. Fortunately, this special smartphone still receives software updates, and the last one takes care of a bug, in addition to the usual minor tweaks.
BlackBerry worked with AT&T to take care of the "No Service" bug that has been affecting Priv handset, and now their efforts have come to an end. The new software update installs the "No Service" Prevention Tool app by BlackBerry but, to do that, a few steps are required. The user needs to enable Unknown Sources by going to Settings > Security > Device administration.
Once the step above has been taken, Chrome needs to get storage access for downloading the update. After a few more confirmations, the tool will be enabled. However, once the app icon shows up and the fix has been applied, the user needs to uninstall it and then disable the installation of apps coming from Unknown Sources.
In addition to this fix, BlackBerry Priv has just received a few minor updates to the keyboard prediction engine, Now on Tap, Google Settings, and Runtime Permissions.
