    They not saying that they won't use BB10 because there isn't instagram. And another thing against instagram, they can sell your photos without your permission! So I guess keep singing their praises.

    So who HAS said that they won't use BB because there is no Instagram? And why should what anyone does on his/her device be of any concern to you?

    If you don't want to use Instagram you don't have to. It is not compulsory. It is an option, to go back to your car analogy. And BB's competitors are supporting it, so if BB want to regain relevance in the US it needs to compete with the big phones coming up that will be right alongside the Z10. Coming up are the SGIV, the HTC One, and the iPhone 5S. They all support Instagram.

    And you might want to research the photo selling angle.

    http://www.mobileburn.com/21046/news...ng-your-photos

    All this activity is happening without BB. These are users who are using other devices. It would do a world of good for BB to tap into these numbers.

    Thankfully.

    I remember all the brouhaha over WhatsApp and some those people who were all up in arms about its lack of security are using it now on their Z10s. There were threads that went on for weeks. Suddenly their concerns about the app disappeard.

    It will be interesting to see how many of the anti-Instagram group will begin using it after it gets on the Z10. For me, when I check the Z10 and the Q10, and if I decide to get one, I will get Instagram, just like on all my other current non BB devices.

    Unless you like taking pictures of your feet, your food or odd angles/closeups of everyday objects, have a fixed wheel bike, use a messenger bag (but not to deliver messages) daily and have Lego hair you will never know.


    It's an app that takes crisp 8mp images and makes them look like you smeared crap on the lens.
    iPhone 5S, Space Black on O2 UK
    iPad Mini Retina WiFi, 64Gb

    My BB History: 7130 >8700 >8100 >8120 >8120(RED) >9000 >9500 >9520 >9810 >Z10
    Plus a bunch of other pre-production devices, including the only RED Pearl Flip ever made.

    If I want to send pictures of my pedicure to show my friends, I do so. None are on my Instragram, by the way.
    Haven't taken one single picture of my food.
    No odd angles of anything.
    No fixed wheel bike.
    No messenger bag; a shopper and a small shoulder bag.
    I've got great hair, don't know what Lego hair is.
    I have fun, along with my friends, with the pics we take. Notice - we have fun.

    Since you know what it is, do you take pictures of your feet, your food, or odd angles/closeups of every day objects? Have you got Lego hair? Do you take pics and make them look like you smeared the lens?

    Oh...i never even wanted to know then... Bbm and bbm group is the only best way to share. Its painless. And you can interact and share at the same time. Instagram is probably similar to fecebook?

    It is, in a sense, since it is its own network. However, unlike FB, contacts on Instagram may not necessarily have personal information about you.
    Example - I have a golden retriever and a border collie. I am also into equestrian sports and dog training. Because of my interests, I belong to forums where we share pictures. However, these are international forums and I don't want my information on FB to be visible to people I don't know.

    Sharing through Instagram lets me interact with my contacts from these forums without having them be part of my FB contacts.

    It's exactly like Aquaman and the sheeps who like spiderman. Anyone knows that Aquaman IS a superhero, who also just happens to be a man. Spiderman is a man, who PRETENDS to be a superhero, but only a &@! doesn't see right through it. Aquaman is for adults, and for intellgient people.

    SO stop trolling itools! You need apps because you're too stoopid to use a browser. Superheros use browsers period.

    PS> SO iphone crashed the space shuttle....figures.. THat's what they get for playing games with lives, and all because some astronaught wanted to play angry birds with his kid, or instagram some space particles or whatnot. Give it up qbnkelt, it's already been proven iphone is a toy, so you're just being stubborn.

    This made me laugh. Although Instagram can be so much more, I have 3 sisters and 1 brother all under the age 20 that are on there and this just summed up their contributions exactly.

    Either way, social media is a valuable tool and I would like to see this come to BB10 as a native application.

    Well you can pretty much spin any phone or app negatively if you want to be bitter about it

    blackberry - unless you like pretending/thinking you are successful and getting things done you won't need a blackberry phone. it is mostly used by teenagers or low entry workers that love to go on forum and tell people their phone is a tool and not a toy. It really boosts their ego. o yea, most of the users are really bitter and find every excuse to support their company even when it is illogical.

    facebook- dont use it unless you want to post drunk picture of yourself and being an attention *****.. etc etc.

    i dont use it and i have no interest in it, but why not be open and not be bitter cause other people want it? you just insulted everyone that used and liked it.

    you sound too attached to BBRY. keep in mind you dont have to keep making excuse for lack of app or insult others just because BBRY doesn't have it and potential customers/customers want it. you do know BBRY have no feeling for you right? i know it sucks when it is one sided the feeling.

    this mentality is exactly what got the 2 CEO's booted from the company. calling everything else toys while your marketshare dwindles from >50% to 4%. whether you like it or not, those "toys" became greatly more functional than BB's. It's 2013, businesses use social media and apps to connect with clients. BB no longer offered a platform that could adapt to a growing market. if you think email is the end all of business communications, then i would remind you that even the email functions of BB were surpassed by both google and apple. if you haven't been to a corporate meeting or a growing office space, you'll notice that the tide shifted quite a while ago, it's definitely your right to scream "nobody gets it this is the best" but that won't save the brand you love. the web browser does not address the app situation and to suggest it does only goes to show the extreme disconnect that many blackberry "professionals" have about what is going on in the mobile market. i'm not defending apple products specifically, as i don't use them. but get a grip on reality. as it stands right now, i'll be purchasing a z10, i have serious doubts as to whether or not i will be able to keep the device as i'm losing a lot of features. so when i do purchase it, it will be considered a toy until it proves itself otherwise, because the list of things i'm losing by going back to blackberry is large.

    if your post was a joke, kudos, i fell for it.

    Default Instagram to be released for US launch?

    I love food pictures! "Look at my food, LOOK AT IT".

    Incidentally Jamie Oliver, on his food tube channel, has an entire series dedicated to food photography.

    Instagram is a lot of fun. It's just a quick simple way to keep up with friends and brands without all the sponsored/promoted bs on other networks.
