Weekly Contest: Ask Someone Why They Hate Their BlackBerry

14 Comments

Ten ThingsYou might have heard about RIM’s recent “Ask Someone Why They Love Their BlackBerry” campaign, which puts the spotlight on respectable folk to pimp out their BlackBerry. Well, Josep and Ronen thought this was a bit lopsided, and deserves a counterbalancing. After bumping heads together, they came up with their own list of complaints about BlackBerry, which can surely be added to. So go on, sound off about the downsides of BlackBerry. Heck, if you’re feeling especially venomous, do a video and share it on YouTube, and even get some bonus points if you can find a cavernous white loft to film it in. The prize? Any combination of three games, themes or ringtones from BPlay for the most colourful parody of RIM’s latest marketing campaign.

Alex will win last week’s contest, for bringing up the interesting possibility of WiMAX and slider BlackBerrys in RIM’s ’08 lineup. Enjoy FlipSide, Alex!

    I can’t wait to see the submissions. I would personally complain about the fact that it takes 1-2 minutes to start up a BlackBerry!

    Wthout a doubt, the blackberry browser is sorely lacking.

    Having to pull the battery out of my 8800 to reset when Telenav will no longer connect to the network. Happens constantly.

    Verizon’s locking of the GPS functionality on their Blackberrys and RIM’s reluctance to do anything at all about it.

    I hate the fact that email comes in the time (no, that’s not a typo). The notifier is like a death rattle. Sometimes I am too scared to even read it, becasue it represents work, the difficulty of which is unknown.

    I hate the fact that the first thing I do everyday (even before getting out of bed) is check my email to see how may jobs came in overnight. When I see the inevitable list, my mind starts to race and I begin mentally composing repsonses.

    Life, as once I knew it, has gone.

    I think the one thing that affects all Blackberry, and especially Crackberry users is when there are random server outages. Blackberry people are productive people and it really irks me to not get any messages all day, then log onto my E-mail account and see 20 relevant messages stacked up that I have to deal with immediately rather than little by little throughout the day. Not to mention the crippling uncertainty of not knowing whether or not the things that you sent out are reaching their recipients. I’m willing to say that I would go without OS 4.5 for another month if they would find a way to fix them indefinitely.
