    Re: News - Google facilitates downloading of Gmail and Google Calendar data

    Moving from Android to a different platform and wanting to use the other platform to store the data rather than Googles services on that platform would be why.

    Given the pain we had trying to get my partners contact details off her Blackberry I could not recommend a Blackberry phone to anyone. The software would not let you download the contacts just stored on the phone, except if you were transferring to another Blackberry phone in which case that was fine and dandy.

    Fair point, I thought it was for archive purpose only.

    I honestly and sincerely wish Google would lose every last bit of data on me, seeing as I didn't want them having any in the first place.
