    One I particularly like is call "Shazam". :yes:

    You hear a song somewhere but can't identify the name of it. Using Shazam, you can have your iPhone listen to the song and after 30 seconds or so, it will tell you the name of the song. Mines gotten most of them right. Quite amazing actually. :mental:

    Tom :)macwave:... useful little thing!)

    Doodle Jump! Most addictive and so much fun! I also like Sky news, Harbor Master, Tweetdeck, Sneezies and I have an amazing Jamie Oliver app. Oh and Facebook is good if you use it.

    I love my iPhone!

    My fave free app is Cool Facts. It tells me all sorts of interesting info. There is also a sex facts one too that is very interesting.

    The BEST one that I paid for ($1.99 I think) is WDW wait times. For instance, RIGHT NOW, Peter Pan's Flight is 674 miles from me with a 25 minute wait.

    Herself's Droid is faster and easier to use than my iPhone. :sigh: Has wicked apps for it too... :sigh: Voice dials too... :sigh: Plus has the Verizon network... :sigh:

    I really don't much like my iPhone or AT&T. :sigh:

    yep AT&T has real problems, I think the Verizon adverts are spot on.

    I really love the iphone though, can't wait to try the droid!

    OK, now that someone has the Droid, can you tell me, can't it be used internationally?

    Did I mention lately that I hate my iPhone? :unsure: The stupid thing powered down today and I couldn't get it restarted for love or money.

    Randomly, as if by magic it just decided to work... :sigh:

    It was really bad timing (is it ever good timing to be without a work phone) as I use it as a sort of GPS too. (Maps app). What a ripping pain in the neck.

    I don't know why it doesn't like me. :sigh: I know AT&T coverage is rubbish, but that's not the phone's fault. Not working properly, THAT is the phone...

    I so wish my workplace hadn't switched me from Verizon to AT&T. :sorry:

    Maybe it's just a bad phone...could you have it replaced?


    Before I bought the Eris, I was on my 4th replacement of the phone I had.

    It's a good point :/ admittedly I don't use the maps app much on the phone, perhaps if I did I'd see instability too, but that aside I've had every version from the first one up and they've all performed really well for me

    This kinda sounds like the coma problem that was introduced with the 3.1 version of the OS. Supposedly also fixed with the 3.1.2 version. What version have you got, Tink?

    Uh huh. It's a 3.1 (7C144). That's it isn't it? I have the rubbishy older model. Gotta' love the workplace... not. :sigh:

    So does that mean I shouldn't be using the maps application? I'm going to get a real gps, just haven't had the extra funds to do that just yet. :unsure: I was just using maps to get me through until I bought a gps...

    Guess I'll do the old, google map and print, routine. :sigh:
