    You would think a company selling software like this would know that the Do Not Call registry doesn’t apply to cell phones…

  • J

    According to the National DNCL FAQ – it does apply to cell phones

    What phone numbers can I register on the National DNCL?

    You can register any or all of your Canadian telephone numbers on the National DNCL. The number can be associated with a home phone (i.e., wireline) service, cell phone or wireless (i.e., mobile or satellite) service, VoIP service, or a fax machine.

    I would like to win a copy of this so here is my 2cents:
    Pro’s :
    I am very new to your website & I have checked your site everyday from my blackberry Tour. I have regularly checked in with this site daily through my mobile phone-(that’s how wonderful your site is) I love the reviews & how they are actually investigated before just writing a pointless review to consumers(like most sites where the reviews are one sided & used for marketing to sell the product). Your reviews are wonderful because
    1. Pro’s are listed
    2. Con’s are listed

    How much more sensible & smart can we get.
    So it is up to the person who is reading to come up with the products final conclusion & decide if the product is worth really what is being talked about. So keep up the reviews & how they are being displayed. That’s GREAT!

    Cons:
    the next issue I see that needs some major help to consumers is how your site is not too accessible through a mobile phone. As I said above I only access your website through a mobile phone (aka bbtour OS 4.7) these mobile phones need to be able to get onto any blackberry site without any major stalls or delays. When a website goes to slow the consumer will wait the time…. but hence become leary & won’t continue to re-visit the website knowing past predicts the future. Your site is great, but could use a lot of improvement for the mobile user who would like to get the scoop from ur site, these days with our blackberries we can do so so much & spend so much time on these devices. this would be my input for improvement to your already great bbsync website. Hope this helps & I also hope I win!!

    I also know that Server Issues were mentioned a while back. I Also think the bbsync mobile interface could be differently setup for the ease & comfort of the user. There is nothing I love more (other blackberry owners can testify too) then an easy accurate web- mobile version. I always enjoy going into my downloads folder & launching -Blackberry Application World- 1. because its very fast. 2. Its interface set-up is not complicated & looks so so nice & beautiful to the eye. Was also thinking a new section with tips to help the mobile user make the best of their experience on ur site, maybe a list of the most common used blackberries, iphones, other models ect..with instructions or tips.

    Blackberry Sync I love this site. You have great writers with wonderful ideas. Every day I open the sync I am overwelmed by all the great articals and contest. The reads help me get thru a long day at work.
    Some things I would love to see in the future would be a forum and some poweruser tips and ideas.
