    I guess you should have thought about that before you bought a touch screen phone.:rolleyes:

    With other phones you still have to take your gloves off to type in a number because the keys are too small. :)

    Feel your pain, living north of T.O. and you should try wal-mart $1 black gloves if you press hard enough it works

    I could see how that would get annoying, but as the IBradMac posted, you'd more than likely have to take your gloves off with any other phones, so at least it's not the only phone that does it :p

    Well.... you could always just use your headphones. It works for incoming calls! (Outgoing you're on your own)

    A bluetooth headset will take care of a lot of your problems. If/when Apple adds a built-in voice dialer, that'll take care of all your call issues.

    Or you could modify your gloves by cutting off the fingertops with a scissor :)

    But you really shouldn't be using it when it's below 32° F (0° C).

    It's a barmy 26 degrees here today and sunny. We have to worry about sweaty, not cold, hands.

    Yup, here in Syracuse we have accumulated something near 3 feet of snow this winter season from lake effect. When I'm snowboarding my phone gets put on hold, that's about the only time I need gloves badly. I almost never NEED gloves otherwise, and when I do - I just slide the right glove off and I'm good to go. I have kind of gotten over it seeing as this is the *second* winter for me with an iPhone.

    There is a thread in the accessories forum about some gloves with little things on the thumb and index finger that let you use your phone. I'm too lazy to search it for you though... :cool:

    Diehard posted a link above regarding them. Nifty if I do say so...



    For me, I walk with my hands in my pockets, and my iPhone with them. I can skip songs by double-clicking the home screen, and Guestimating where the scroll buttons are to skip forward. Antying more, and I just pull it out for a second and stare at teh screen.

    There are touch gloves....they have things on the fingertips that work with the iphone screen. No exposure necessary. Google them

    Twenty-six degrees sounds pretty damn gold, unless you're talking Celsius. ;)

    At first I laughed because I thought you were being sarcastic until I saw you're from Australia where it is both summer and 26 C (not 26 F) like I originally thought. That's almost 79 F for anyone curious.

    I sure could use a vacation to an Australian beach after reading this thread...

    Of course I'm talking Celsius. I'm Australian, we use measurements that make sense... :D

    It's certainly far from warm and sunny in Switzerland these days. Be thankful.

    Please...79 degrees is NOTHING!!! In Southern Californa, summers are usually 100 degrees daily. We're lucky if it's below 95... :(

    I want so badly to live in a cold place with normal seasons...

    Yeah, but is that 100 a dry heat? I'm sure that Australian 79 degrees is humid as heck!
