iPhone 4 - Page 8

I wish I had a shiny new Jabscreen.

 

Or perhaps a Jobscreen

I like the way the author of the article states categorically that everyone who owns an iPhone 3 will get an iPhone 4, no matter how bad they may be. He talks like anyone who owns an iPhone is a retard. Maybe I need a humour transplant today or something after being annoyed by some smarmy kid at work (he is 19, but acts like he is 12), but I didn't find anything that Guardian idiot wrote to even be remotely humorous. If I wanted to listen to some cynical, negative and annoying tw*t in a suit I'd go make friends with that kid in work. Can't believe that guy is a columnist for the Guardian - what a joke. He looks like an annoying sh*t too.

 

And before anyone says anything, no I'm not an Apple fanboy. The only Apple product I have is a 3GS and seriously considering not even upgrading that. Nice prediction Charlie Brooker. However much he is getting paid to write trash like that, I think it's 95% too much.

I read an article in the Times a while back in which they tested the 3G data networks of ATT and Verizon, and found that ATT had more data coverage.  And the reason for all the dropped calls was that att couldn't handle the increase in data from the iphone usage.  Apparently, if Verizon had taken the iphone it would be even worse.  It also said that the iphone got bad reception compared to other phones, which only made matters worse. This test was done after the iphone 3Gs came out.

 

So while that article may hit some points, it isn't entirely accurate.  ATT's coverage may be bad, but apparently it isn't worse than anyone else's and is worsened by the iphone's bad reception.

This post no longer has any purpose to its existence.

But if Verizon had the iPhone the coverage would be better on AT&T, as there would be less traffic on their network from less customers, the ones that would leave and go to Verizon. The solution to dropped calls and clogged datastreams is simple, made complicated by carrier exclusivity.

Are users still having problem with reception or not ?

post #114 of 124

I've had mine since day one and I've never had any problems with the reception. biggrin.gif

Are you with Telstra ?  I'm thinking of getting one instead of an Android HTC.  

post #116 of 124

I'm currently with 3 but I plan to change over to Telstra even though they are a bit pricey but I've heard that their coverage is very good, and I reckon you should definitely go with the iphone over the HTC because if you jailbreak the iphone you could do so much more then what the HTC could do such as anything in the app store you can get for free, fully customise the entire phone etc. and like what both me and my sister said once you have an iphone you can't go back. biggrin.gif

Holy long sentence batman!

 

I wouldn't recommend jailbreaking your phone.  For a start, it's impossible with the latest firmware, and secondly a working phone is better than a dicey phone full of dodgy software from sites run by teenagers any day of the week. biggrin.gif

Just gave my iPhone 4 to my girlfriend after 3 months of using it - Bored of it now, I've moved on to the HTC Desire HD - Much superior phone biggrin.gif

Any iPhone firmware can be jailbroken, even developer releases FWIR. Stability isn't as bad as it used to be on the original iPhone and the 3G either. The only thing that doesn't exist right now is an untethered jailbreak of 4.2.1 on Win7, you can do it on OSX (it'll be possible on Win7 within the month).
