Iphone on Edge
Im sure there are many of you relegated to ATT's edge only area's. How are you dealing with the loss of high speed data. Where I work, and spend most of my time during the week, is full on 3G. But where I live is edge only, not supposed to be upgraded until October. I find the phone to be a useless when not connected to high speed. Loading twitter updates takes 2 minutes. Weather takes 3 minutes. Loading a page takes 4-5 minutes. Its really bad.

WOW. I'm using an iPhone on T-Mobile, which means EDGE all the time. Granted, not nearly as fast as being at home on wi-fi. I don't have that slow of speeds. Twitter and Facebook and what not load in seconds. I can even play IMO (World of Magic) on EDGE.
There is definitley something wrong with that picture. I'd give AT&T a piece of my mind.

I have no issues with EDGE, I hope they certainly upgrade the area in my hometown to 3G soon as well but do what I do, I made my folks place wifi so I can use my phone and laptop there without issues.. just add wifi and you'll not have to worry about edge until oct ...

Yeah, I have wifi at my house which makes it ok. But really I need a phone that works when Im not home and not at work. This is going to be a tough decision. May need to head back to VZW until 3G is up and running. They say October now, but last June they said December of 2009. I dont get what the holdup is. If you guys want to see something funny (not really funny) check the ATT coverage map and put in zip code 10916. You will see my frustration.
