    I can open a zip file on my iPhone or iPad, why can't you?
    You can with the right app but not natively in iOS.

    Zipped attachment in an email? Ah yes this is now a native feature since iOS 7. Welcome to berry 2008.

    Yep, they are alive and well. Virtually all downloadable programs, service packs, driver installs, etc use compression technology. They are just not called "zip". Why, for example, would I transfer an 11 gig file across the internet when I can "zip" it down to half a gig?

    Funnily enough, there are 2 monthly reports that I need to submit that must be in .zip format.
    What's so funny about it? The fact that I can't do it on a Blackberry 10 device, despite it being a supposed "advantage" of the system.

    One of the submissions needs to go through a web portal, which reports that the BB10 browser is not supported.
    The second requires a password protected zip file, which cannot be created using the Blackberry 10 file browser, yet can be done easily with a 3rd party app on my iPhone (not sure if an app exists on Blackberry to do the same).

    Did you try changing bb10 browser to desktop mode?

    Did you try looking for an app on bb10 that creates password protected zip files?

    Do you use or own a bb10 device?

    Yup, I agree. That has been stated several times in this thread alone. The problem with threads like these is that people are trying to convince others that their choice is superior, and this sometimes leads to stretching the truth, or outright fabrications. In those cases, people need to be called out.

    Do you use or own a bb10 device?
    Your first 2 questions are nullified by your third trollish one.
    Could you do us both a favour and refrain from replying to me anymore?
    I will put you on ignore to help facilitate this.

    I liked the s2, had for nearly 4 years. I'm easy on my phones but stuff happens and the s2 took a few falls. In the end, took 4 years I got tired of clicky keyboard. BES integration is light years ahead of active sync. I had some great free apps I used constantly. However the shortfalls, like lack of popular streaming apps were annoying, and the slow processor.

    The iPhone 5s is fast, lot of functionality and does cool things, however if you are a power email user, the email integration, which is a blackberry strong hold is just passable on the iPhone.
    I had both and they were both garbage. Company phone so I had to take what they offered but still, to each his/her own, but they were huge piles.

    There's no denying that a few people find it to be the best solution for them. The problem is, the vast majority of people do not.

    I think it's a matter of few actually know anything about the device, that bberry has a new OS written from the ground up, new devices, or that as of 10.2 android app loading is native. As with many products you can't possibly know whether it's a worthy solution without actually using. Having a great solution is only part of the equation and not the number one determinate of adoption ask Betamax, or plasma TVs

    I guarantee apple when they release their HDTV will sell like hot cakes from day one, sight and use unseen.

    I depends on what your definition of pile is. Cut and paste anyone? LED notifications? No doubt web browser sucked. However, I could set multiple daily alarms with oddball recurring schedules each with their own volume control. Custom profiles, led notification. Good Bluetooth. Original battery lasted almost 4 years and still got a decent days charge on it. Entire OS was integrated very nicely. They made a big mistake with the hardware, not software.

    Actually according to blackberry's past three quarters: write down(s) for unsold bb10 inventory, 40% of blackberry's employees laid off, replacing the CEO, Inability to sell the company, US and UK carriers starting to take bb10 off the shelves and offering direct fulfillment orders. Dropping all their odm partnerships and forging a new one with Foxconn to manufacture a cheap touch screen bb10 device to be sold in emerging markets.

    Yeah I'm pretty well informed regarding bb10's abysmal failure.

    Oh and Legacy devices out shipped bb10 devices last quarter by a factor of 3 to 1. Bb10 only shipped 1million*
    (This figure includes shipments made and recognized prior to the quarter) devices in It's third fiscal quarter.

    Etc etc etc.


    I hope you didn't pay full price for your bb10 handset.

    I don't know why we are talking about a 4 year old phone as though it's anything like the phones berry is producing today?

    Unfortunately blackberrys comeuppance is too little too late. That doesn't take away that bbos is technically superior to iOS, IMO.

    And that your sole argument consists of device shipments as a measure of superiority has me scratching my head about what you really understand about BB10.

    Yes IOS is like the pretty dumb girl on a lot of teenage flicks. All show and little go, but very popular.
