I haven’t seen the new Z10 so can’t comment on that - but I do get tired of every device and platform being overly concerned with and geared to “the consumer” and how to help them share every random thought they have and every innocuous picture they take to as many people they don’t “really” know as possible.
We need a device that is geared toward business productivity and security and that is getting harder and harder to find.

I couldn't agree more. I have to say I do like the ease of use of the Z10 -- particularly the message Hub. And it's becoming more useful with at least step one taken toward direct sync to Outlook. But Blackberry seems to have forgotten there are lots of us in small businesses who use our smartphones as basic tools. I look forward to the next BB Link update. Also please redesign Link. Not all that easy to use. AND BRING BACK PIN MESSAGING ASAP!

Maybe some are trolls but most are just frustrated. You have to allow for people to blow off some steam over this. People have been waiting a long time and hanging onto devices that have seen better days…
The users that come to this thread are the ones that aren’t happy. The thread title speaks for itself - blowback was to be expected over this. At least BB is stating the problem will eventually be addressed – but more “waiting” is now in order. People hate waiting, especially since they have already been waiting – so I am not surprised by some of the more “generalized” irritated posts in this thread.
The only part of the Outlook sync I need is the SMIME cert sync and nobody from Blackberry has commented about that. Hopefully someone will. I bet I have a very, very long wait ahead of me before that part of the sync is delivered.

Yes well Mt Spiritbear
You are correct I did not specify my complaint very well. So here it is:
BB10/Z10 does not sync with a desktop installation of Outlook - happy ?. This functionality was native in previous incarnations of BBs.
Hence I am pissed-off because this capability was of great use to many small-businesses and other adults and it has been deleted or ignored. The functionality and designed useage of the old BB desktop vs the new Link is indicative of a change of approach. And it is to this I alluded. If I want a noddy phone to watch videos send banal cr.p to my twitter feed (sorry dont have) listen to crud and post pages of my arse to my facebook page (sorry dont have one) i have a plethora of choice, iphones android etc. BB represented the only adult phone out there.
On the second point - you are wrong. "get educated with the issues" It has something do to with your attitude, and that appears rooted in arrogance. I hope your approach to your task with your so-called helpdesk is repeated by any medical examiner you meet in the future, esp if you complain of 'non-specific pains in the chest'
So I am right - BB have deleted functionality that a lot of people found useful and did not tell us or advertise the fact - it is kinda implicit with a system that fuctionality is not reduced - are you saying i should have expected it. So you 'get educated' about what is being complained of here.
