Readers of this blog already know about the issues I’ve been having with my iPhone 3Gs. The most annoying is, without a doubt, the short battery life. After the restore, and spending a full day in the field, I am experiencing what seems to be “normal” battery life of about 6-7 hours of use without a recharge. A friend gave me a few suggestions.

As I wrote yesterday, I had decided to return the unit due to the overheating and poor battery life issues I had. I called my local AT&T store, and they told me that if I called Apple, they’d be able to help me a lot faster, so I did. Continue reading “iPhone 3Gs – Okay, I’ll Keep It”
Last week I got an iPhone 3Gs. It took a little getting used to, but as time went on, I liked it more and more. I rarely had a chance to use it as a phone, but I used it regularly in my office on WiFi to get email and surf the web. Today was the first real test I had to use it on the road, on AT&T’s network. Today is also the day I decided to return my iPhone to the AT&T store where I got it. Continue reading “Why I Love my iPhone 3Gs, and Why I’m Returning It”

I did it. Yesterday, I walked into an AT&T store and plunked down the plastic for a 32G iPhone 3Gs. Once again, Steve’s Reality Distortion Field was in full effect, and my past hatred for Apple was but a distant memory as I happily test a unit at the store and accessed familiar websites with ease.
Given that I live in Vermont, other options simply are not options here. Sprint and the Palm Pre are non-players, as the coverage in this area is non-existent. Verizon Wireless is owned and operated by Satan (or monkeys… I am not sure which) and due to my past experience with them, I refuse to use VZ again. T-Mobile? Not an option. They won’t even sell me a phone here.
That leaves AT&T. I’ve been a Unicel customer for years, but since they got gobbled up by AT&T, that was the path of least resistance. Also, I’ll be able to keep my Nokia e71 as a backup phone which I can use when I go biking or hiking or whatnot, or in the even that the iPhone fails in one way or another.
So for the next two years, I’m an AT&T customer. God help me.
