Re: New Blackberry 10 Sync to Outlook

Working for a large corporation and using my on BB does not give me the oportunity to push my calender out to any cloud services (security). And unless I get a corporate BB a Z10 is useless to me. Guess I ahve to stick with my 9800 and Desktop Manager...fix up Blackberry!!!

Re: New Blackberry 10 Sync to Outlook

Financial Institution; they would never let any personal device connect in any way to the Exchange environment. If we want to have a BB that gets work email/calender then we need to get a BB from them. 

 

I just want to keep my personal BB, so I can BBM, twitter, and surf the web without being monitored; but at the same time have my work calender put on my BB via USB or Bluetooth, like I do with my 9800 and the past 4 BB's I had previously.

Re: New Blackberry 10 Sync to Outlook

BlackBerry 10 and BES 10 bridges that gap while maintaining the work/personal sides of things. However, until businesses get that system installed and operational....

The wired sync is coming back. I just don't know when.

When bb solves the issue, I'll gladly reconsider the new phones.

 

Somewhat off topic:

Now, your comment about how it is 'normal' for a new phone to come out riddled with bugs and missing features illustrates why we are stuck today with manufacturers releasing product prematurely. It is absolutely NOT normal and very frustrating for users. Sure there will always be a few kinks that need to be ironed out over time but major issues and lost/broken functionalities have to be caught and corrected pre-launch. Because users have come to expect new products to have problems, manufacturers have been taking more and more risks. I have been in high-tech product development management for 30 yrs with both private and public companies and I can tell you that I've seen many companies fail due to premature product releases. Sadly, public companies are more prone to premature releases due to quarterly results publication and market/shareholder pressure. There is a constant tug of war between tech execs and business execs about release dates. Since the business execs wield more power than the tech execs (and have to answer to the board and to the street), products tend to be released earlier than they should. Unless we as users send a strong message that we don't want to be beta testers at our own expense, that trend will continue. 

 

 


And that's perfectly fine.  I completely understand waiting for a new product to have it's problems ironed out before getting it, especially if it's missing a feature you rely on.  It's the people who are just completely leaving blackberry altogether because of this that bother me.

In a perfect world I'm sure every product that comes out would be perfect, and we'd never need updates, or even hardware upgrades.  Unfortunately with the complexity of programming, and the sheer amount of it there's no such thing as a perfect release.  Even with key features they can sometimes be left behind to meet time constraints, space, or funding.  If you don't think it's normal ask anyone who's running any version of windows later than xp how their .gif viewing is going.

I'd also like to point out that to the U.S. this IS pre-launch.  For all we know the day it's released in the states they could release a huge update that fixes this issue, and many others.  It's a double-edged sword getting the hardware earlier than the rest of the world.  If you honestly thing it would be better for the company and it's consumers to be delayed until this was fixed, go tell that to the Americans who are already walking away from Blackberry for having to wait.

Finally, you say you "have been in high-tech product development management for 30 yrs" then tell me this: when a company's stock is falling, they are laying off, what, hundreds of thousands of staff, faith in the company is crashing around the world, and people are anxious to get something new from them, would you really advise them to delay their product?

Finally,  yes this issue is important to a lot of people, but so are a lot of other problems, and they can't fix them all at once.  Nor can they postpone the release until all the issue are fixed, or it'll never be released.

And really, how is beating this dead horse any more going to fix anything?  They already said they were working on it, why is this thread continuing?

I understand what your situation is, and since I work in a financial institution I understand perfectly. Not so long ago, our IT policy prevented us to install apps...

 

But there are several things that bother me in what you write:

  • if your company does not want people to have company emails & calendars on their personal device, you are doing the exact opposite. Your actions may be harmful for your company.
  • If you think that you need to have emails and calendar on a phone, then it means that you should be able to prove to yout IT that yes, your company needs you to have access to email and calendar on your phone. Again, there are company rules and as such you should try to override those rules (even if the Desktop Manager 5 and its Desktop Redirector allowed you to do that)
  • if your company is very tight about security, as far as not opening ActiveSync, then maybe they should consider preventing people from using the USB port on the computers (this has already happened in my company).

 

All in all, I see that the easiest way for you is to get a corporate BlackBerry phone, and keep your other BlackBerry.

Qoute

 

And really, how is beating this dead horse any more going to fix anything?  They already said they were working on it, why is this thread continuing?

 

 

______________________________________

 

 

     I can specualte that this thread is continuing because new people are buying the phone each Day and this issue is catching them off guard.  I personally have accepted it, adapted temporarily waiting on the BB fix.

 

  Secondly ,  I and others are lacking the confidence that although many of us have been told verbally by BB directly that they will fix the sync.  This thread would probably settle down if BB posted someting official, but I do not see that happening. 

 

 Why so emotional?

   After waiting over a year and being loyal it was very shocking to many of us, It was not like losing my favorite app or something,  I lost an arm. It is a major function of my Business and others. I think those of you that experienced this understand what I am talking about. It was an emotional event. Each of us need to get over the shock and make decison in your own best interest.  My knee jerk reaction was to screem murder, I'm returning my phone  ...  I have calmed and am keeping My Z10.

 

    I love this phone. It is the best Blackberry yet.  It is just a Toy until I get my arm back none the less.

 

  Those that need to vent, vent...  it's all good but you do need to not dwell on it for too long.    

---   ---- 

 As I believe Xandrex said,  I'd also like to point out that to the U.S. this IS pre-launch

--- ----

   I have been the first to buy many things and there is always glitches (too be expected and the odd catastrophe of varying degrees as we have all seen on the news etc.  every Companies fear Smiley Happy

 

 

 Keep venting, heal and move forward,  I promise you there will be lots of updates over the coming year.  BB is here to stay !

 

Take care !

Re: New Blackberry 10 Sync to Outlook

Well put Andrew.   BB has done little to inspire confidence.  

 

When it comes to problems they have a track record of keeping their heads in the sand until they can't avoid it any longer.  Then they make some hollow promise of action which they don't follow through on (example Z10). 

 

Good Business is at the very least acknowledging the obvious. Admit you screwed up and tell us when you expect to fix it. Your loyal followers will stand by you.

Re: New Blackberry 10 Sync to Outlook

Any FOIP experts here? correct me if im wrong.... if we have some Canadian F.O.I.P. expert's. But is it not illegally by foip standards for a company to host personal information of an individual on a server that resides outside of Canada? without written consent? that would make all these work around technical illegal.
