Sort of. Cannot specifically remember when I looked at it in store but you can make group contacts. In BlackBerry world there is a free app called Docushortcut. It is a free app that makes shortcuts to your home screen. Say you want group of friends, coworkers and family on home screen. Use app to make one touch dial for each person. Once group is on screen drag one over the other to pair them in a folder.

Move others in group to it also. Then when you want to call them, touch folder then person to call. It basically works like android when doing it.

Thanks for ur response, but I played with the Z30 at the VZW srore in 2 locations. Creating groups is not on the phone. Even a rep at BB checked his own phone...not there. The app called smsbynow will fix the problem. The developer created it just for the the BB 10 phones...and it allows groups that have 100's of contacts, just like my Bold does....anyway it has gtreat reviews.

Cool! I am debating my next phone as a windows phone because I can have each inbox separately on the home screen like the storm and storm 2 could do. Is there a way I can get separate inboxes on z30 home screen?

On the other side I like the z30 for HDMI port, screen share, blackberry email speed and external memory slot.

I am getting tired of android software breaking done after 6 months in to a flagship phone. I miss blackberry! Lol.

BB10 in general works a little bit different. Instead of separate inboxes showing up as icons on a home screen, they have moved all of it to a central location called the "Hub". Very convenient once you are used to it. It has BBM, text, any inbox you want all in one spot.
