Who do you work for? Google?
Trust us, we know what's good for you?
What I think this boils down to is this.
If you're looking for the security of keeping all your personal and business information private (peer to peer), Android is not the phone for you.
For some reason, Android/Google are looking to force you to make access to all your data and information available to them and regardless of what they say about privacy, they still have access.
End of discussion.
In addition, if they have access then any good hacker will eventually have it as well.
Guys. If some num nuts jerk can hack the credit card web sites and steal the personal information of thousands of clients before being detected and shut down, they can hack the Google site with even less trouble.
If you want the security of *peer to peer data transfer, you need to stay with Microsoft compliant developers and if I'm not mistaken, HTC is still the only one?
*Peer to peer - computer/phone to computer with no other service such as Google inbetween.
Part of being a business person means that "due dilligence" is a big factor in what decisions you make.
Go to the Microsoft website, look up the "Windows Phone 7" and tell me it doesn't offer EVERYTHING a business operator (not a kids phone operator) needs along with:
The security of peer to peer data transfer,
No issues with file sharing,
No issues with Recognition or
No issues with transfers,
WiFi Hot Spot
Syncronization of ALL WINDOWS BASED DATA,
The ability to upgrade AUTOMATICLY as new tech developes and
All that at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE or third party program additions.
I'm sorry Zerizon/Droid/Google, In my modest opinion, after reading all 17 pages of this discussion, though I have and like Verizon, I'm going to buy a Windows phone and change my service to AT&T.
When Droid adds the peer to peer sync ability I'll consider the phone but untill then, I need the security of Windows.
I probebly deserved that. [chuckling]
No. I don't work for Microsoft. In fact, I despise monopolies and in my opinion, Microsoft comes dangerously close to that.
I am however, an independant insurance agent who works a large business from home and a corporate office.
I absolutly cannot third party my data. It's unthinkable for me.
That's why I'm reluctantly stuck with Microsoft compliant products.
No more, no less.
Google doesn't have my email. My provider does. Windows Phone 7 was too little, too late for me. I jumped to Android especially when I heard you would be unable to tether it.
Epsilon already gave away everyone's emails they bought from our banks, shops, markets, etc.
Anyone else having issues with their calendar sync lately? I had been having success with Sync2 in getting my DroidX to talk to Outlook 2007 via Gmail until recently. My problem is that although events entered on my calendar in Outlook show on my Google calendar and Droid, any new events entered on my Droid calendar are not showing on my Google calendar or Outlook. I noticed that Google Sync has reached end of life as of 12/14/12 so maybe that's one of the reasons? Any insight would be appreciated.
