Tried BodyGuardz yet? Working great and looks fantastic after 12-24 hrs of drying and use.
Not upgrading the personal Iphone nor the corporate iphones until the defender case is available is quantity. No in a big rush, can keep the corporate money in the bank until the case is available.
On the Edge network here in north Alabama, my old 1st gen iPhone blows the doors off my iPhone 4 and I took video of it. I'll post tomorrow. This is not AT&T's fault; it's Apple's. I've yet to get Edge to work on this thing. 3G is fast when I'm in one of those areas. I am quickly getting fed up w/ iPhone 4. I'll be dialing 'zero' for customer service tomorrow.
Actually, I like this better.

While I don't own an iPhone I found this interesting.
I thought the problem was AT&T's coverage area.
I'm just curious how such an error could remain undiscovered for years.
Well it's always something, right?
Does anyone know a good pedometer app for iPhone?
Try "RunKeeper". Works well and it's free.
That's the beauty of PR, spin spin spin :lol:
Here's a video showing the difference between iPhone and iPhone 4.
Summary: iPhone works on Edge. iPhone 4 doesn't.
Note: Both units had wifi turned off and were using the most recent version of each tested app.
I've used the iPhone 4 on E several times and it works fine.
Consumer Reports today announced that due to the signal issues they could not recommend the iPhone 4. However, the phone rated highest among other smartphones. Macrumors has a blurb:
For me, the best part is what they quoted:
I love my iPhone 4 but I admit it's not a great successor to the 3GS.
Consumer Reports is about worthless for anything electronic IMO.
The New York Times explains a bit more in an article headlined Design Flaw in iPhone 4, Testers Say:
The article also notes that "Consumer Reports did not slap the iPhone 4 with a 'don’t buy' warning, which it sometimes issues for shoddy or unsafe products." So I guess they think the darned thing is really good for everything as long as you hold it carefully?
I agree for the most part (except many of their ratings for everythign are suspect) but lots of people base their decisions soley on CR, so this is good as far as holding their feet to the fire as a certain number of people will not buy because of it.
Also, they did do some good testing and they are not a "internet blog" which Apple (and most other manufacturers) loves to deride as full of misinformation, so they are not about to come out and say that CR is making this up and it is not real. It appears the testing debunks the assertion of Apple that you have to death grip the phone and block the antenna to cause the problem. It is as simple as touching the spot with the rest of the phone unblocked in many places with less than perfect signal. Also, surely CR will test whatever fix they come up with so they are much less likely to be able to get away with simply remapping the bars to signal display.
I will say, that all in all, I am still quite happy with my iPhone 4. I am laernign to avoid touching the spot of death (which is not too hard as I already did not touch it when using the phone as a phone, so its no biggie for me personally). THe one thing that has affected me more righ tnow is the proximity sensor thing as I have turned speaker on several times and hit a few numbers on calls.
Let the censorship begin.
I was at the in-laws last week and noticed that the Vizeo TV in their kitchen looked familiar. I don't know the model number but I do know it's over a year old because they had it last July.
This has to do with iPhone how?
Since I have a cover on my iPhone 4 I don't see the issue at all. Reception is actually better than any of my previous iPhones. I have been hit with the proximity sensor issue but it has only happened twice since I got the phone. Rebooting clears it up.
I've had a couple of issues:
1. A couple of times the screen has become unresponsive & I've had to reboot the phone
2. The bluetooth sound is pretty bad when paired with my Kenwood in-dash navigation that has Parrot bluetooth. I'm on the latest bluetooth firmware
My husband put his phone down on the table the other day & when he picked it up it had a heat warning & said it needed to cool down before he used it again. He hadn't been using it much at all previous to that, the table was not in the sunlight, & the room was 77 degrees. If that one happens again I'll try to get Apple to replace his phone.
I thought that the iPhone4 looks a lot like the Vizeo.
