Reverend Grim Pulls His Hair Out – Metaphorically Speaking Of Course

It’s that time of the week for me to put boney finger to keyboard and fill you all in on what has been going on.


Teaching the Grimlets the way of  UTB!

(Chen Knows I need the help!)

Well, as you can probably tell I’ve been trying to battle it out with some rather blind sheeple, and when I say blind I don’t just mean they have the wool over their eyes!

For example, the fool I have spoken about before that trolls anything BlackBerry on the Apple site BGR, Dlarus6…

He (not surprisingly) made a dig at BlackBerry being ‘inferior’ so I replied

Dyegate, Bendgate, crashgate, mapgate, iOS8gate, NSAgate…
And you don’t think the iPhone is an inferior product? Let’s face it, Apple need to seriously go back to the drawing board and start from scratch, security is a joke, iOS8 out for how long and had how many updates and still not right, I’ve said it before and I’m saying it again, YOU don’t owe apple anything, they owe you, all the money they have has come from people like you buying the, let’s face it, not the best product out there, it’s time apple gave you what you should have, a phone that works properly and doesn’t cause you nothing but hassle!
And if you think dissing me for being on your side because I have a BlackBerry then you are really stupid, I’m not dissing you am I?

to which the reply was (I can’t believe)

All FUD lets talk security.

Security: it doesn’t really get any more secure than iOS. There is no root login, there is no arbitrary code execution, all code must be signed by Apple or a third party enterprise authorised by  Sysadmins can block all software installation company wide, or lock it down to specific apps

I know, RIGHT!

Oh my god… you are so blind! Have you even seen what’s been going on this past century? What, 8 apple hacks this year alone? Jailbreak for EVERY iOS released! You honestly think apple is secure? Why then doesn’t every government or military service etc use apple?
Like I said, I’m not dissing you, you need to open your eyes and see that Apple are mistreating you as the customer, look at all the other balls ups they are making! Please open your eyes!

And then we get

You are delusional just stop. You believe they can’t stop phones from being jailbroken? Hahahaha

They can’t and never will, the plaster they stick over it each and every iOS upgrade gets ripped off! DOOFUS!

And you are the reason Apple get away with what they get away with! Have a happy life. I’m sure all at BbbbGgggRrrr will look after you through life. Please don’t reply because I am not coming back to this site again, you can’t see when people maybe on your side can you?

Unfortunately, as well as being a stupid and blind sheeple, he can’t read either, he replied

And what do they get away with? Making the best phone on the planet? The fastest? Unparalleled ecosytem? 64 bit? Poorberry users smh

Blackberry….always fighting for scraps.

On that note I just left him to argue with the others on there, like I said, I hope BGR look after him in the future, he’s gonna need it!

Talking about looking after people, I looked after some poor woman in a Tesco store this week, I popped in to pick up some bits and bobs and for a giggle I thought I’d stick my head in the mobile shop there to see if they might sell me a BlackBerry but the salesperson was trying to sell a rather confused looking woman an iPhone 6, I was listening in when I heard the assistant say “It also has NFC, Near Field Communication, this is a great new feature”… I gave a little laugh at that point and they both looked at me then carried on… “especially handy for transferring files like photo’s and music…”

“Well that’s a lie”


“NFC on all other phones, which isn’t a great new feature, the BlackBerry I had 4 years ago had NFC, does allow you to transfer files to another phone and it is great but on the iPhone 6 and 6+ you can only use it to pay for things at places that accept Apple pay, Tesco doesn’t so if you’re a regular shopper here it won’t help, and with Apples security issues over the past 10 months do you really trust them with your bank details?”

Well the sales person didn’t look happy with me and the customer turned and said “So do you think I should get a Samsung?”

I pulled out the trusty Z10 and said “If you want security then the only phone that any government or military group would use is a BlackBerry, no Malware like Android phones, no security issues like Apple phones…”

“But they don’t have as many app’s as anyone else…”

“In fact they technically have MORE app’s than anyone else because you have all BlackBerry app’s AND Android app’s, look…”

Quick demonstration of Amazon App store, download, install and run android app and hey presto… the customer say’s

“Can I have one of those please?”


Errmm… no… “I’m sorry, we don’t stock BlackBerry phones, but we do have…” Sales staff cut down in flames…

“Where do you suggest I go to get a BlackBerry?”

Well, after I gave her a few links for buying a handset direct and telling her about the Passport she decided to head off to Carphone Warehouse to see if she could look at one, I did say good luck they may not have one in stock but nevertheless she went on her merry way to get a secure phone!

This also goes to show that staff at these phone retailers are not trained at all, this sales person actually thought NFC on the iPhone6 was the same as any other NFC equipped device, I’ve also just looked on Tesco Mobile website and found that there is no mention of NFC on any iPhone 6 or 6+ meaning that this salesperson did not get told “look up the spec’s on our website” Oh no, SOMEONE told them that the iPhone6  had NFC and therefore has lied about it’s spec’s! Naughty!

Well, even if I only save one at a time it’s worth every minute!

Oh, and Lord Chen, When am I going to get some recognition for this? You pay your Rep’s to sell BlackBerry…

Worth a try, until he gets back to me I’ll do it for the love of it!

Oh, and talking about the love of things…

I’ll be the first to admit that the Kardashian’s don’t get me sitting there on a daily basis watching they’re antic’s on the TV (Mrs Grim on the other hand, yes, she watches them on nearly a daily basis (And I must admit I’ve seen them with BlackBerry’s in their hands!) But with the Revelation (My favorite chapter in the Bible) That Kim goes on Ebay to make sure she has backup BlackBerry’s on standby! WOW!



WOW! It’s Grim Kardashian!

Now I don’t know about you lot but doesn’t she look great after a crash diet like that? What with her loving her BlackBerry’s (you need to try a BB10 phone Kim) I think she has earned an honorary place here at the United Temple of BlackBerry don’t you?

Well, on that note I’m going to settle down for the evening secure in the knowledge that I have saved one from the eternal darkness of Apple and Android, that Kim ‘Grim’ Kardashian loves her BlackBerry and that there are a few unfortunate sheeple out there (Dlarus6) that are so delusional that the may never see the the light!

So, until next time here at the United Temple of BlackBerry, if you need anything at all or you need to confess how many sheeple you have converted give me a shout @CRAPPLEBASHING, C000117D3 or the forums

So, for now, Reverend Grim is outta here!

Sweet dream’s K(GR)im!
