Hi there. I am a MAC product lover. We have a mac laptop, desk top, 3 ipods.. well, you can see that we totally support mac.. We my hubby and i JUST purchased two new iphones. He has his, but mine is supposed to arrive in the mail. Where our house is, we did not expect a miracle of signal bars, or anything like that, but with our previous verizon network, we did have ONE bar which would cut in and out, but was enough to send texts and stuff like that.. Well, now we are on the CINGULAR network, and even though we are getting ONE bar with the USB cord attached, we can't do ANYTHING with that one bar.. WHY WHY WHY give me the hope of one bar if its not going to do anything, send texts, receive a call, call out, I CANT EVEN SET UP THE VOICE MAIL WITH ONE BAR!! Its the same with two bars. If we go up the street a little, i get ONE MORE bar at the top of the hill. GREAT!! Except i still can not get anything done! Can someone tell me if there is some bizarre setting or my iphone is screwed up because i find it odd that i can have bars but no service.. If i go into the basement it will say no service, so i know there is SOMETHING that the phone is picking up on .
