Question for panel: As a long time iphone user, having had a first gen ipone, 3G, iphone 4 and now the iphone 5, the Blackberry 10 phone and operating system has caught my eye, and I’m seriously thinking about jumping ship to the Blackberry in February. I am fed up with iOS as each and every new version seems to have one or more problems that affect tne user. I have real trouble getting a phone signal at home, and I’ve tried many different suppliers so it has to be the iphone that’s at fault. As will says last week, ios needs a big change and the iphone needs a major change too – the iphone has to work as a phone or it’s no good, see next link for more:
