iPhone 3G Not Up To Snuff

 

Apple iPhone customers foreign and domestic alike are complaining that their new 3G iPhone keeps dropping calls when they are on the 3G high-speed network. The phone was originally made to perform on the 3G network.

Certain analysts state that it is the Infineon Technologies chipset in the phone that is the problem and not the network. They state "This is not surprising as the Infineon 3G chipset solution has never really been tested in the hands of users"

An AT&T spokesman claims: "This device is working great on our 3G network. We are thrilled with the customer interest in it," despite receiving complaints in the US. AT&T isn't having trouble with other 3G devices, which just leaves the iPhone.

  its true  
 
To get any type of reliable service I keep my 3g turned off until i need to use it. I'll get 1 bar of service with 3g on in many parts of town, then full signal the second i flip it off.

  I don't get it...  
 
Why do so many people and pundits think that the iPhone is such great technology?

It's camera is substandard, the 3G is relatively slow when compared to other phones; the interface, whilst pretty, is slow and tediously animated, and on top of all this the software is limited and locked down.

  So much hype  
 
Its just a big phone anyway. I personally am using a Nokia N95, which I've had for nearly a year now and getting another one for my wife.

A 5 megapixel camera, able to video call, mp3 and mp4 player, 3g capable, upgradable to 8gig memery card, GPS and maps for in the city, lots of software available.

I started using the "large" Nokia's when the 6680 came out about 4-5 years ago and get a new model each year(usually free on my phone plan) and think the Symbian 60 platform is more stable than other types of phones.

I don't know what the fuss is over this iPhone? *ohhh, its a touch screen* So what, you can get other phones that are touch screen too.
