    I'm sure this may have been mentioned before but I am bugged by the speed of the iphone when seen in the commercials. Yeah yeah I know, it needs to be sped up to fit in whatever for the time slot but the last commercial did it for me. The one where it shows it being used for viewing a mountain, zagat, flight etc. Notice it is cropped so it doesn't show a wifi logo because there is no way you can get those speeds on edge... hell you can't even get those speeds on wifi.
    Yes, I love my phone but these commercials can eat a fat one. when People use my phone they always think there is something wrong with my unit

    Doesn't the last commercial end with the person about to click on printing their boarding pass for JetBlue?

    Yeah, right, like it has Bluetooth printing capabilities. For all those BT printers we have.

    (Okay, I actually have one, but I'm an industrial field handheld engineer.)

    your phone is quick and responsive as the one from the commercials?
    I find that pretty tough to believe.

    Pretty confident there is minor editing.

    I can see the wi-fi logo in the ads.

    Perhaps you need a new TV? :(

    Come on guys...It mostly about the processor speed, not the wifi speed. There is definitly editing in the comercials to make the phone look faster. No modern web page can be processed that fast with the puny 400-500mHz iPhone processor. I do like that they at least show the grey grid before the google map loads...that is realistic. I really don't blame them for trying to fit in a lot of selling points in a 20 second TV spot.

    Your talking as if the iPhone commercial is the first advertisment you have ever watched in your life?

    Yeah, like the burgers in McDonalds in real life look as good as those on the ads, or that face cream reduces wrinkles as well as they suggest, or the roads are always as empty as they are shown in the car commercials.....

    Hehe :D ... so true! I know what the OP is trying to say but it really is a given that adverts are not 100% based on reality these days. They need to be taken with a pinch of salt

    Attention to Detail

    In the commercial that you mention...3 web pages have already been opened. He flicks to each different web page. Yes, they have been clip edited to fit the time slot...what commercial is not? Hard to believe you are upset about such a minor and obvious detail.

    Ohhhhh well. Such is life

    Have you ever had a Arby's sandwich that looked like the one of the commercial? All TV commercials are this way....

    Ahh, all better now.
    Thank you for comparing my previously $600 dollar phone to a $2 beef sandwich.
    Yes, if you bothered to read the entire complaint I wrote that I
    m fully aware of editing etc... in commercials thanks again for repeating what someone else said including me. You are the winner

    Maybe the iPhone they are using has been software hacked to speed up the processor. I did read somewhere that the processor in the iPhone is a 620mhz ARM chip which can be overclocked over 700mhz. Or maybe it's the next gen iPhone with an intel chip. ;)

    It's a commercial people. Do you really expect to get those exact speeds? Are you that gullible?

    Maybe some CAN get those speeds. I sure as hell can't but I never expected to.

    And, I am VERY happy with my speed on my iPhone as it is VERY fast on wifi. Just not THAT fast

    Welcome to the world of commercials where things are rarely if ever as they appear

    When you see a McDonalds commerical.....now this may come as a shock....burgers are NOT made like they appear on TV
