    Quick question.

    I go to college in Buffalo and it is really cold. Generally, temperatures range from -10 F to about 30 F during the winter. And it starts snowing from late November until late March/early April.

    Considering how the iPhone has a resistive touch screen, it is quite a bother to have to remove my glove(s) in order to actually text, scroll, call, etc.

    Any suggestions as to how I can remedy this situation?


    I saw these on thinkgeek.com, but they don't really look all that warm.

    I also don't particularly like using styluses, seeing as how it's a bit annoying to carry one around with me with nowhere to store it.

    Fingertipless (or fingertip flipping back) gloves or styluses are your only choice with gloves needing to stay on. Kinda sucks, but thats how capacitive touch works.

    Don't forget that cold weather get you shorter battery life. You have to have it warm in your jacket, even then you will see a shorter battery life.
