Saying Goodbye to My iPhone, the Data Hog
After flirting with an iPhone for a month, here’s why I switched back to a BlackBerry. The iPhone was fun, don’t get me wrong, but I know where my loyalties lie.
Wow, what a piece of tripe. It could have been written about any modern smartphone. Many of the “gotchas” that this poor, inept soul experienced could have been totally avoided with a little more intelligence from the user. The iPhone doesn’t re-download 300 messages every hour unless you’ve botched the setup badly.
Please, Zack, do us all a favor and stay with your beloved BlackBerry. You are clearly not savvy enough to use an actual smartphone. One of my favorite quotes:
I called my network back in England and they pushed the cap to a higher tier and within minutes, an abundance of email began flooding into my iPhone. By this point, I could not help but feel dread in my stomach as I could count the pounds sterling racking up in my head without my iPhone seemingly even doing anything. I was literally throwing money away and I couldn’t really do a thing about it.
There is an app on the iPhone called Settings, Zack. Believe it or not, you can actually change the way your phone works by using this little app. It is simply staggering that a supposed tech writer can’t figure this out.
