There is one thing for me that I have missed with BlackBerry OS 10 and that is the ability to compose in ‘Plain Text’ or view obscure emails with the ‘Get Plain Text’ menu option that OS 7 and earlier brought us. OS 10.2.1 now brings some of that back in the form plain text composing which can be changed from the dotted menu and back to ‘HTML format’.
The only limitation is viewing plain text from an already received email which is where I used this the most. My work around here is to temporarily forward the email and then change the compose format.
BlackBerry outlines this through a KB Article Here
Upgrade the BlackBerry 10 smartphone device software to version 10.2.1.
