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? ๐Ÿคจ

Can this be done - how?
You can set a link with with your contacts on Google via setting up a MS Exchange service. If you point your computer (or Safari in a pinch) the instructions are laid out there to link the service.

It will replace any local contacts synced to your...

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.

Iphone 4S on Sprint

Please help me decide. Looking to jump to sprint and iphone 4s but not too sure yet.
Bottom line:

Sprint "true" unlimited data or AT&T/Verizon data plans which = $$$$$$.

Is the iPhone 4S 4G capable?

I had heard that there were no iPhones that support LTE (or WIMAX ๐Ÿคจ ) but on the AT&T wireless site is shows the iPhone 4S categorized as a 4G device. Is this true?
ATT is slowly pushing out LTE, but the iPhone 4 is not LTE capable. They are using HSPA which is very fast and they tout as 4G speeds. So industry wide LTE is officially considered 4G with HSPA being a stop gap until they roll out LTE everywhere. T...
No it is not correct!

In A Word "FLASH"

How in the world can a smart phone in 2011 still be produced without flash capabilities?
Because "its an antiquated platform" and will be replaced by html before its an inconvenience"

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 :-)
Personally I have an iPhone 4s on AT&T and I am getting around 5-6 mbps down and around 2 mbps up, I reside in Long Island so I can only speak for what I have experienced, but I know for a fact Verizon's coverage is never that fast anywhere on 3G.

Very poor Battery Life Iphone 4S

Just got my new Iphone 4s. Great phone BUT very very poor battery life. How do I fix this? Certain blogs are saying it is a bug or needed software fix. What do you think???? Thanks very much
I updated mine didn't help make sure you have 5.0.1 loaded.Apple is working on the fix best thing you can do is do not plug the phone in until it is under 20% and let it charge to 100% uninterrupted to get the best battery life and close all your runn...

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?

Facebook Integration and Photo Uploads

Two questions. Does the iPhone 4S have Facebook integration for phonebook like the Android phones. And can you upload your photos from the iPhone 4S to Facebook? Thanks!

Battery life SUCKS.

You go the battery part right. I've had the phone for 4 days and its downright pathetic. averaging 5 calls a day with some texting and this phone is down to 19% after 11 hours. Most of that is standby. Guess a battery case is going to happen sooner than later.

Apple just released a new update that is supposed to help with battery life, hopefully it will help you out.

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 better...in my own opinion
Of all the smartphones made, I can't stand android! Battery life sucks, and all you really have is a lot of games to play. Whoopeee!!!
If you have an Android with 2.2 and up task killers really don't do any good. You just have to be careful about what apps you download because some will drain your battery pretty quickly. I have a G2 and the battery life is pretty good. I rarely pl...
Been a guy android since the beginning and I think it's awesome. I just got the 4s and let's face it. Way more polished than android. I had the epic touch for a week and the 4s is in a different league it's faster battery life is way better and have ...
What about the iPhone 4s, besides screen size, is lacking? Or I should say, "6 months behind"?

Talk and Surf

Will you be able to talk and surf on the web at the same time with Verizon and Sprint network?
Nope. CDMA does not allow for simultaneous voice and data. Unless if you're on wifi...
Why is talking and surfing the web at the same time so important..I either do one or the other.Never both..I Don't get it.

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?
have you tried using the reminder app i believe it adds to ur calender.

I agree with everything the author has to say, except for one thing.

He talks of the phone being "not for everyone"

It is.

This phone is the greatest phone ever made.

Better Media capabilites than The Amaze 4G

Reading reviews, I found out that the overall performance on the iPhone 4S is better compared to the HTC Amaze 4G (Better camera and media capabilities, etc). I have seen the Amaze and it really amazes. If the camera on the Amaze is already powerful, then the iPhone sounds quite impressive to me.

I will have to consider this as an option since I am a MacBook Pro user. I've never had an iPhone, it might be the right time.
Siri and the Syncing/integration with my laptop are another reason to give it a try... ๐Ÿคค
Media capabilities would be based on calculations per second by the CPU. As apple has stated, the A5 is a dual core 1 ghz, and the Amaze has a dual core 1.5 Ghz, which makes it a full 1 GHZ faster than the A5 when both cores are being accessed. You t...
The HTC Amaze is a much better phone all the way around. I have a four and checked out 4s and was disappointed in it. After checking HTC out is is better than 4s.
