An Urgent Appeal… From Bono


Here at UTB we get a lot of messages every day from a lot of different people. Some of them are even complimentary!

But this one is IMPORTANT. So please, listen to what the lead singer of U2 has to say.

Over to you Bono.

Hi there BlackBerry fans. Bono here! I’m sure you all know me as the lead singer of U2, wearer of funky shades, silhouette of iTunes and as someone who cares about speaking up for good causes. Well, it’s that reason I come amongst you today.

Did you know there are people out there less fortunate than you? People who are unlucky enough NOT to own a BlackBerry device at all? I know it’s hard to fathom sometimes but it’s true.

Some of them have something called an ‘iPhone’. These poor souls wander aimlessly from power socket to power socket. Leading a nomadic existence they constantly search for a way to keep their phones turned on. Some of them have to get up early, just to walk the distance to the next socket to attach their ‘lightning’ cable to. Just after they have unplugged it after getting up.

And there are others.

Others for whom there are no sockets at all.

And for them the bright light of their iPhone fades into darkness within an hour or two..


But it needn’t be this way.

For as little as £2/$3 (maybe less) you can help keep an iPhonians lights on with one of these:


A USB OTG (On The Go) cable.

Yes, with just a small investment you can keep literally dozens of iPhones fully charged by letting them plug their overpriced failures into your BlackBerry and get just a tiny percentage of your battery life.

So please, think of an iPhonian today. Get a USB OTG adapter and help me cripple improve their iTunes experience by making sure they are forced to listen to our entire album instead of just the first 4 or 5 songs before the battery runs flat.

Please. Help me to help them.

Impassioned stuff there.

So, will YOU help an iPhonian today?

I think you should.

It’s worth it just for the look on their faces.
