. . . right after I post something about how happy I am with my Iphone, I go to the grocery store on the way home from work and find that I am unable to call Alissa from there to tell her about a special on milk: “No Service.”
Am I suffering the dreaded Infineon chip issue that seems to be all the rage among the news services this week? No idea. All I know is that we’re in an area that is definitely covered by Edge (the network, not The Edge of U2, which would be especially cool) and is on the fringe of the 3G network, which is where I read these Infineon chip issues are rearing their ugly heads the most. I was happy to read in the article linked above that there will reportedly be a software fix (I think they mean “firmware,” but I won’t hold that against them) to take care of this, but still no official word from Apple, who have grown strangely Microsoftian in their silence about problems lately. This is particularly troublesome to someone like me who is very much on the verge of making The Switch, having about had ENOUGH with PC problems lately and kind of wanting to pick up one of them sweet little MacBooks . . .
