I'll certainly give my opinion if the topic comes up, and when somebody asks for advice I talk about it....although even then I tend to stick to facts, and for personal opinion, I say "this iphone has been working great for me. It has done everything I wanted". Again, partly because these people should make their own free choice, and I don't want to be responsble if something goes wrong! LOL

As for backround running, I get your point but your incorrect, what you mean is on BB10 theres not yet a public API for that, it can (and very much does) do background running, as BB World now gives you update notifications without opening it, your alarm goes off without the clock app open etc. like I say, your point is kinda valid but not in a `it doesn't do it` but your better off saying 'currently 3rd party apps cant run background services when not in an active frame, but the OS does support it'

Just to clear stuff up though: I love CrackBerry and I like to stay active in the forums and catch up on the latest news so I am not here hating on the forums or CrackBerry itself, just kind of speaking out here.

I don't know, all these "let's convert our friends to ____" threads remind me of the religious people who show up at my doorstep on Saturday mornings trying to convert me to their religion. I once had to sit on a flight with a dude who spent a bunch of time trying to convert me to an iPhone way back when I had a curve. Then his battery died, while I popped the battery out of mine and put a fresh one in. He shut up.
Go with what you like and what meets your needs.

To step away from the nit-picking and attempt to get this back on topic, if I may ...
If you want to convert an iPhone user to a Z10, just strongly encourage them to try one. They'll either like it better or they won't; but they have to decide for themselves, not anybody else. Start rattling off a list of reasons why one is better than the other, you'll likely get the same reaction I give them when they tell me all the reasons why my 9900 is ancient technology: resentment.
As I posted in another thread, a friend of mine who ditched BB for an iPhone was very impressed with the Z10 when he recently had the chance to check one out. I can tell you when it's finally available here, he will be giving it some very strong consideration. Can't ask for more than that.

Nobody is going to take this guys comments seriously with Caps, misspellings and opinions. People have to figure out Themselves if they will like this phone or not. This guy is just embarrassing himself with the said reasons I stated.

I'm also waiting to see if its true that many apps that are missing will come to BB World when it arrives in the US. Hopefully more will come to light in the next week or two.

In any case, he's responding directly to your assertion that "most" of the points are "legit", so it's rather hard to "leave" you out of it. You made the statement!
