"customers will move on." - To What??

Have you tried Good Messaging? Have you tried integrating an Android or IOS device into the Enterprise ? Apple has always been troublesome in Enterprise architecture, Android is not much better.

As soon as policies and security (remote wipe) becomes a concern there really is not a lot to choose from. So while it sounds catchy to say "customers will move on" in your headline, try backing that up with something - because the cold reality is that there is not a lot there to choose from.

Consumer business is a whole different beast.

Openness, transparency, and a little humility, would go a long way toward regaining the good will of their customers.
