BlackBerry vs. Apple Case Study
“I can’t wait for BB10. Apple does not even allow telephone companies to back up their information unless they use an app. I was a Blackberry user for 10 years and never lost a contact. I switched to iPhone.
A month ago when we had to do the upgrade, Apple lost 90% of my contacts. I thought Oh, no problem I have them all saved on the cloud!!! Guess what?? Even though they were supposed to be saved there, there was not one contact saved on iCloud. I thought oh… no problem Verizon should have them saved! My last ugly truth came out, Verizon told me that Apple does not allow phone companies to save their client’s contacts.
It took me 26 years to collect those contacts for my business and it took apple one day to lose them all. I cannot wait for BB10. You analysts could trash RIMM all day long, but as a consumer, who relies on my phone for business, I would never buy another iPhone.”
