So I was getting tired of my iPhone dropping WiFi connections like no other. I finally lost it when I was trying to update my Apps, and it dropped the connection and they were useless forever, forcing me to restore my iPhone and Jailbreak again. So now I'm just about ready to shell out the $20 for T-Mobile's internet, but I have a few questions before I do.

  1. How much does the Genius Bar cost if your warranty is out (I might just do that if it isn't an outrageous price)?
  2. Does the AppStore work over an EDGE Network?
  3. Does iTunes work over an EDGE Network?
  4. Does YouTube work over an EDGE Network?
I recently upgraded to 2.2.1 if that makes a difference. I dunno

I live in an only Edge area and yes, while edge is slower than wifi and 3G, it's not as bad as everybody has made it seem.

I call up videos on youtube all the time and IM over edge. I also browse constantly. Maybe I live in a faster edge area, but I really don't find it that annoying. Sure, some times its better than others, but if i don't have 30 extra seconds to wait for something to load, then I'm rushing through life.

I'm sorry, but this is not English that even I can read. And I teach remedial reading/writing.

Yes, i'm not that intelligent. I write posts that are spelled correctly. Way to win your argument.

I just disagree with you. I don't think Edge is quite as bad as everybody makes it out to be. Compared to 3g and Wifi, yes, it's slower, but it's not that horrible.

And for the record, the history of EIC tells me you never have anything positive to say about the iPhone ever.

I'm not arguing. I'm stating my opinion which is apparently okay for you to do, but not me? Just because it differs from yours?

Ts a forum board, ofcourse your opinion is accepted but not always appreciated. How is ot to teach? My english teacher was a ***** i hope your not like that to your students. The abovr statement has nothing to do of what weve been talking about.

I'm glad you are contributing to this thread.

I have a V1 iPhone and I have to use edge all the time. Its not bad....if I have 5 bars, maybe 4. If I have 3 or less I really don't want to load a youtube video. My friend will bug me to watch some video and I'm like, I'll do it later...I only have 2 bars lol.
Browsing the internet isn't too bad, especially since google mobile is optimized for the iPhone.
