Possible Correction re: WPA Access

Great review. I bought an iPhone on Friday, half figuring that I'd end up returning it, but I've really enjoyed it so far.

You mentioned having trouble accessing Wi-Fi hotspots that weren't Apple... well, I've figured it out, but it seems to be the quirkiest aspect of using this phone. FIRST, go to Settings... Wi-Fi. Look at the name of the secured network you want to join, but don't click on it!

Now, click "Other" at the bottom of the list of Wi-Fi spots. Type the name exactly as you saw it on the last screen (including capital letters, etc.), then click "Security" and choose the correct method. Now your password will be accepted, be it WPA, WEP, ASCII, Hex, etc.

This sounds hard when typed out, but once you've done it once it is easy to remember. Just odd to have to go through 3 or 4 screens to connect to WPA / ASCII password networks since there are quite a few out there.

Let me know if this works for ya! Thanks for the thourough review...
