Never buying SONY again
I will never buy another SONY product for one reason. The customer service is appauling. I have an Xperia Z, and I use the term 'have' loosely, as it is STILL being repaired by a company called SBE LTD who SONY use as their repair provider. It has been with SBE for 5 MONTHS! I first had a two month battle with SONY to admit the screen/battery on the Xperia Z was faulty as it cracked on its own (the phone was sat on my desk as the screen cracked) This has been well documented online (just google it!). So after a two month battle trying to get them to admit they were at fault it's now been another 3 months that apparently they have been waiting for parts that aren't available in the UK. For this reason I will never purchase another phone from SONY. It's just not been worth the hassle.
Stop over inflating the BS and read the E-Mail
They have been harvesting for at least 2 years
About two years ago I had a blackberry that I let sync with facebook, this was under the understanding that it would only PULL contact info from my FB account and link it to contact numbers I already had in my phone. It was never made clear at the time that it would also rip all of the other contact details I had on my phone and store them on FB servers. I changed phones and carriers 2 years ago when I left working in Belgium, however, numbers that were stored on my blackberry are in the list. This means that FB was harvesting the data from my phone way back then.
I have no problem with syncing what facebook already knows about me and what my friends have agreed to share and tie them up to numbers I may have already had in my phone. This after all was all I perceived the function of the FB sync. At no time have I given permission to FB to scan and store all contact details from other people I had on my phone.
This is a blatant devious tactic employed by FB to misdirect and misinform people over personal information. Something which seems to be becoming increasingly more prevalent by them.
I am just grateful Google Plus has come to the table as people might now start switching over to a company with a little more openness about its operations.
DONT BE EVIL!
