    Talking iPhone Survives 20 Below Temperature in the Swiss Alps!!!

    Hey bloggers,

    I just got back from Switzerland and was taking a tour of the Swiss Alps. As you probably could guess, the weather was pretty cold up in the mountains. I took a mountain train to the Top Of Europe, the Youngfrau; it was about 20 below at over 11,300 ft above sea level.

    I had read that iPhones can malfunction or simply break in extreme temperatures, but 20 below was far more extreme than mentioned.

    Needless to say that when I was able to go indoors and warm up, my iPhone worked fine and continued to do despite very old climate through out my tour Switzerland for almost 2 weeks.

    So Kudos to Apple for creating such a trendy, yet hardy phone!

    btw, I am a PC person and had bought the Storm prior to my iPhone. It was my first touch screen PDA; I though that I would be different from my friends. All I can say is that it is not the iPhone Killer by any means...

    PS I have really cool pics as proof, but the blog template is not working here... Any suggestions?

    I'm visiting Chicago and it got to like 10F to 15F below 0 and was able to make calls and surf, although I didn't take my hand out of my gloves for more than 60 seconds at a time because the wind chills were pretty brutal
