| Your BB email app is as broken as it violates privacy. Look, it puts
| your message below my signature which let your message appear as my
| text. ¡Qie asco!
| Your statement above about contacts/privacy is nonsense. Imagine your
| boss calls (and is in your contacts) and the provider says to him: your
| employee does not pick up the call. Do you want this?

BlackBerry makes THE most secure devices on the market. It violates no such privacy. If you don't want an employer knowing if you are online, don't add to, or if added, delete from, your contacts. And if you don't want to talk to them, don't pick up the phone. I assume, but have no knowledge of the telegram add-on.
At least give me an intelligent argument, not this stuff advertising that you have little knowledge the topic of which you write.
