    Do you know what annoys me so much about some iPhone users?

    How they're so anti BlackBerry that with any opportunity they get they will slate BlackBerry even though majority of them have never used a BlackBerry phone, especially BlackBerry 10.

    I've just seen on of my mates slate BBM just because it has gone cross platform. What is it with iPhone users not willing to even try another OS! I for one can't stand Apple's OS and think BlackBerry 10 is hands down the best OS available at the moment.

    While it may be the best os. Side loading is not an option for non techie users nor is the huge gap of missing apps. If and when they close the gap people might come around..

    Well hopefully as a lot of people I know think BlackBerry are rubbish, I try to fly the BlackBerry flag but they're so far up Apple's *** they won't have any of it.

    Relax it's not their fault that they slate BB at every opportunity, Blackberry slates itself at every opportunity too.

    The ONLY good thing going for Blackberry is, the CEO has not muttered a word for a while, but that hasn't stopped everyone else slipping up with embarrassing statements and deadlines.

    Once upon a time Blackberry used to JUST p!$$ off it's own customers, now, it gets the privilege of p!$$ing off users on iOS & Android with BBM.

    I think people should just relax and respect each other's choices. If someone slags my BB, I just look at them and go, "whatever". I know what's best for me.

    Well the problem seems to be in your friends. And it's irrelevant to the platform they use. Lol. They are a bit close minded. I have friends on various platforms and they all can see the qualities in BlackBerry 10.

    I agree that people should just respect each others choices, It's just I find myself trying to convince them why BlackBerry 10 is a good phone more often than not.

    Just be grateful that smartphones didn't exist when people used to duel to settle arguments. Can you imagine how many people would be dead for slandering phones?

    You can't just stop someone and moan because they have an opinion. I had a blackberry, when I was like 17 till 21, I've also used several androids & 2 iPhones.... I always had issues with my blackberrys and had to return 3! Androids were great but I suit a iphone. But that sir....IS AN OPINION. Annoying people annoy me but bleh! Rant over.

    I think BlackBerry users are more willing to try other OS' than people who use iPhones.

    Off the cuff, I think that stereotype doesn't hold across the board.

    You could probably theorize that IPhone users are the most satisfied smartphone users (and I think there is data to back that up), but there are diehards that won't try other things on each platform.

    And that is what Bobby Brown calls "prerogative."

    Hmm I see your point and I agree that iPhone users are probably the most satisfied smartphone users but even then that shouldn't stop them from being willing to try another OS out.

    I didn't say it wasn't good, I think it's good that people will be using BBM on different platforms.
