Me and my dad have an iphone and I get better signal then any of my friends here with their nokias...I don't know what it's like with US networks...but I have a few friends that have an iphone 4 and they say it never gives them any problems... :thumbsup:


for here it all depends on the carrier, the big ones are telstra, optus and vodaphone

all work well inside cities and large towns, but telstra is the only one that works well outside heavily populated areas

It is not the networks that are an issue it is that just holding the phone (bare no cases or anything) can completely cut out signal. Which is a huge flaw.

If you haven't tried it with your phone yet, go do it.

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

Apple's mission statement as they put it:
To make electronic devices and modern computing available to even those who aren't tech savvy.

Translated to plain English:
We sell cheap hardware, manufactured even cheaper, at sky high prices.. because our customers don't know any better.

I was so happy when Steve Jobs kicked the bucket.

I'm pretty sure some of the folks on here do run a computer shop though. :P

Personally, I feel the same way, I don't celebrate his death, but I'm wondering how many of you that lecture others about it might have celebrated someone's death before? I'm sure there's a good number of people on here that were happy to hear the Osama Bin Laden was killed. :whistling:
