Does that mean that there is a video letting us know what is causing the packet loss from BB customers since last Autumn?

Maybe they should invest to training their awful customer services first? The amount of incorrect information (lies) I have been told by them is unreal!

"We know how much customers value our in store Gurus"

I went in to look at Blacberries and there were 3 members of staff all drinking coffee and they refused to help me until I picked up an iPhone and then there was a stampede to get my custom.

I decided not to bother in the end and went and bought a phone online.

@AceGio, chrysalis - We sent out an email to many of our customers in the past about our Gurus and the Guru TV videos. Its a shame you didn't see it.

We are however planning to continue communicating and spreading more awareness among our customers in the coming months, so watch the space!

We'll continue to add more videos to fulfil customer demands. We still have our official presence on O2 forums and I’m more than happy to answer or assist anyone.

Thanks
