Very interesting and informative read! Picked up some useful facts about BBM that I previously didn't know so thanks for posting this! I'm sure Apple's iMessage will up security and privacy as the months and years roll by.

BBM is useless on /giffGaff thanks to the inability to get BIS working properly. Smiley Mad

BB are rubbish all around. Constant freezes and the limitation of applications. RIM need to up their game.

I wouldn't say there was a single bit of rivalry between Android and Apple. BlackBerry has so many flaws and a recent survey by the BBC showed that 71% of BlackBerry users were ready to jump platform.

I think BlackBerry was a bad move by giffgaff in the long run and will actually loose them quite a bit of money.

 

I'll try and get the link for the BBC Survey...

Blackberry smartphones will NEVER die. Its a case of privacy, peer to peer messaging, no records kept. 90% of Arabs use a BlackBerry....I wonder why ??? As for the Iphone, the only good thing about it is its operating platform, appart from that, one of the downsides is that it costs very little money (Cant quote or this comment may be removed) but you would be very surprised how little it costs to manufacture an Iphone INCLUDING LABOUR, and as i am sure many of you will have experienced by now, they are made such that they are very fragile and cost a lot of money to repair, hence commercialism. I will end here i think. Smiley Happy
