    I live in nyc, and i got to thinking today..................

    how nicely will my iphone play with the sometimes harsh winters up here? Supposedly, this winter will be very "wintery"?

    I was just thinking that..My iPod goes all multi-coloured when it's in the cold (making it weird watching video) but other than that it's fine.

    Wonder if the same thing happens on the iPhone, I guess we'll just have to wait and see! Bring on the blizzard!

    put in the freezer while it's playing and wait a few minutes then see what happens.

    The cold is the least of your problems.

    Try using the phone wearing gloves. Ruh-Roh.

    That would be absolutely stupid unless you want a wet, electrically fried iPhone. The condensation will kill it. DO NOT DO THIS.

    Winter isn't a sudden change in temperature like room temperature to the freezer is.

    So long, and thanks for all the fish!
    Wouldn't putting it in the freezer be similar to taking it from indoor warmth to outside winter conditions?

    I think it will be fine...my iPod is always fine in winter, can't see the iPhone being different

    Just take those gloves off first

    It is where I live....I am in a heated car...park and step out into -20 degree weather....in fact it is probably worse than a freezer :)

    I've decided that if I get an iPhone I will just put the sim card back in my old nokia for winter. I can dial it with gloves on....

    Or after using the iphone for a while and the back heats up you can use it to keep you warm in the winter :D

    I'm not sure, but you do have a good point. However, when I put things in the freezer they get condensation on them. When I carry my phone with me from my warm house into the cold outside, condensation isn't an issue..
