Thanks for your support. It is clearly completely unacceptable to
sidestep the issues and focus on semantics. burying your head in the
sand doesn't make problems go away.

That's bad news on the FR, although personally I wouldn't be too upset -
you'll now be able to get a real, usable phone. And Personally I'd
recommend blackberry's products over an iphone.

are absolute shit, especially after you've spent an afternoon defending
