    Hi. Odd thing, but maybe you can shed some light on it. I came across this a while ago, but it seems to be happening again.

    Has the iPhone 3G been made bathroom safe? For example, to stop me from using it in the bathroom and electrocuting myself or something, because whenever I go in the bathroom the wi-fi connection drops out - basically making the phone useless.

    Have Apple done this to stop me from using my iPhone in the bathroom, and potentially dropping it in the bath or something. It's just only ever seems to happen in the bathroom.

    Maybe I should go into someone else's bathroom to test it? What do you think?

    I think the iPhone works perfect in the bathroom, if you dont have Wifi then its because the signal isnt strong enough (as mentioned above)!

    i think what i'm mostly worried about is the fact I travel a lot for work, and so I don't want to be missing out on email whenever I go to the bathroom. Is there maybe an app out there? I had a search in the app store but didn't find anything. I just need something that detects if your near a bathroom so I can stay clear.

    Yeah they put a safeguard in it where if the GPS senses you are within a few feet of a toilet or shower, it will automatically shut off all radios inside the phone. :) Hahaha.... nope.

    I've heard that profound amounts of methane gas can interfere with cell signal. Maybe you should check your diet, instead of blaming your phone.

    Well said.

    It is obviously a "joke" thread by the OP…
