First, none of the other phones on the market sync like the old blackberry's to a standalone Outlook install, even the Window's phones...without an app that is not free.
2) I don't think the sync is easy or simple, otherwise they would have done it.
3) They were under HUGE pressure to get the phone out, and it basically does everything that the other competitors do, and they had a partner that was writing the app, just like they did for the other phones.
4) It questionable how large this user group is, i.e., those who want this sync. So they may be satisfying 95% of their user base right now.
5) They have committed that they are working on it.
Is this the reason that I don't own a Z10, and still have my old Blackberry? Yes.
I also want a Phablet and a Mobile DEPOSIT app that currently doesn't exist for Bank of America or Wells Fargo.

Fair enough - and you are correct, It was quite absurd of me to suggest that small businesses are as important to BB as the big corporates of this world. It's just that there are numerically a lor more small businesses and I suspect that we are geographically more widely spread. We are, therefore, probably a more vocal, or at least publicly vocal, group than the IT purchasing managers of BIG CORPORATE INC!
Anyway, as you rightly say, BB have faithfully done the first part of what they promised re the sync issue. I just wish they would hurry up and do the second!!
I enjoy your comments - especially the more feisty aspersions that occasionally flow from your pen (or rather your keyboard!).
Bring on the Q10 say I - and onwards and upwards with the BB 10 Operating System.May we soon have to find something else to moan about!!

We're not asking BB to make available to us "price sensitive" information for God's sake!! All we are asking for is something a tad more precise than "sometime later" - which as an earlier post to this thread rightly pointed out is perilously close to "it's in the mail".
I think that BB should be capable of stating quite simply that the second stage of the syncing issue will be sorted out by the end of Q"x". Hopefully "x" would be 2 or at worst 3!
