Sam Milby says he understands why Angel Locsin and Bea Alonzo did not want to accept his gift of a Blackberry phone.
Bea Alonzo and Angel Locsin both refused the Blackberry phones that Sam Milby presented to them as gifts. Sam was very happy with his own Blackberry so he wanted his friends to use one, too. “Happy ako sa Blackberry ko, and lahat kami sa showbiz naka-Blackberry kasi 'pag Blackberry to Blackberry libre 'yung messenger so lahat kami nag-uusap through Blackberry. Si Angel wala pa siyang Blackberry noon so bigay ko sana para sa birthday niya kasi actually she gave me a Christimas present pero wala akong naibigay sa kanya so I thought I should really give her something for her birthday.”
Bea is the only one among her showbiz friends who doesn’t have the same phone brand so Sam thought of giving her one. “'Yung kay Bea kasi lahat ng kaibigan niya like sina Nikki Gil, Anne Curtis, Shaina Magdayao… Lahat sila lagi nilang sinasabi, 'Ay si Bea na lang ang hindi naka-Blackberry' kaya out siya lagi mga usapan namin. They even said, 'Let's set-up a fund-raiser para mag-Blackberry na si Bea.’ So sabi ko may extra Blackberry na ako sa bahay so I'll just give it to her na lang. Everyone is saying, 'Bea just accept the phone.’ Kasi it's just sitting in my house lang naman.”
But the acoustic heartthrob doesn’t feel bad about the refusals. “'Si Angel, of course I really understand. Hindi niya tinanggap 'yung phone kasi 'yung phone na ginagamit niya that time was the phone na binigay ni Luis Manzano sa kanya pero may Blackberry na siya ngayon, siya mismo ang bumili. Si Bea, I understand din kasi mukhang she's happy talaga with her iPhone.”
In a separate interview with ABS-CBN.com, Bea said that she refused to accept the Blackberry because she's not tech-savvy so it wouldn’t suit her at all.
