Data Service

In the past 2 months I have had issues with my iphone 4S and getting data signal. I work in an area where my service is fine but haven't been getting data inside the building when I have in the past. Not to mention it drains my battery faster than an alcoholic can drink a beer. Does anyone else have this problem? Eh?

iphone 4S on Verizon Sync issue

Had an ipone4 and got the 4S recently. The first time I synced fine with computer and after that, it would not sync. Tech support had me restore phone and delete all Apple downloads and reinstall. Sync went fine. One week later, same problem. Has anyone else had same problem or know of a fix?

Gmail Integration

I have been an Android user for the past couple of years, and I use Gmail heavily. I love how the contact list and calendar are sync'd between Gmail and my phone and updates to either one update the other immediately. I'm considering switching to the iPhone, and I'm wondering if it's possible for Gmail, calendar, and contacts to integrate the same way?

Also, how is the email on the iPhone? I heard all your email accounts have to be in one inbox - is this true? I like to keep my personal and work email in separate apps.

I had heard that there were no iPhones that support LTE (or WIMAX Eh? ) but on the AT&T wireless site is shows the iPhone 4S categorized as a 4G device. Is this true?

iPhone 4S: AT&T or Verizon?

Hello everyone!

I currently have a iPhone 3G (I know!). I'm thinking about finally upgrading next month. I'm deciding between staying with AT&T or switching over to Verizon. I live in the New England area, and travel to Southern California a lot. I want to ask current 4S owners of both carriers what they think of their phones, in regards to data speeds, dropped calls, etc. I heard/read conflicting stories about the differences of 3G speeds between AT&T and Verizon, and I just want to hear from the real world.

Thanks for your help :-)

Issues with syncing with Outlook


I'm having an issue with syncing with Outlook. Specifically, my calendar is not syncing up properly. The contacts sync up just fine.

I have completed many tasks to try and resolve the issue:
1) Uninstalled all itunes components, and reinstalled itunes.
2) Reset sync history
3) Hard boot the phone (press power and home buttons
4) Tried syncing with another computer, same issue (and error messages) occurs.

I've even tried using a different cord. By the way, the error message that comes up states, itunes was unable to sync with the iphone because it was disconnected. I'm not touching the phone, it has always been connected, but the calendar items aren't there. Has anyone else experienced issues with syncing on a PC?

sooo what!

so basically the company that is sue happy completely stole the notification system from android, and then released a phone thats still 6 months behind a lot of high end android devices... way to go crapple!!

the screen is still to small and they just basically played catch up to several devices already on the market so nothing new and really worth while here i will stick with a android device thats bigger faster and way my own opinion

New Colors

Was at the Apple store yesterday and they confirmed that the 4s will soon be shipping in gunmetal gray, red and navy blue! It's about time more colors than just black and white!

Hopefully out before the holidays!

Calendar question

Currently using a blackberry. Most important function for me is the calendar. I like the fact that I can set an event reminder a week in advance on my BB. When I have looked at the Iphone calendar app, it only allows a reminder up to 2 days in advance. Does anyone know if this can be altered?

Case for iPhone 4s

Just placed an order for my first iPhone and have questions about cases. I am looking for a case that will provide optimal protection without adding a tremendous amount of bulk. Also how is durability with the iPhone? I have never paid for insurance up until this point as a BlackBerry owner but would it be worth it with the iPhone? Thanks for your help.

could not activate cellular data network

I just got my 4s and I'm getting no access to data. Verizon told me it was a wide spread issue with the MEID and they're working on a fix. I did some searches and I found no related issues with 4s. Is Verizon giving the runaround or does anyone know if this is a real issue?
