We just went to see the iPhone at an Apple store. Edge was flat out painful to the point where I started walking out a few times. I got one YouTube to work but the quality was so bad it was useless. Other YouTubes looked better but couldn't function. Surfing the net met with huge wait times to load. Had Wifi working and that was painful as well. An Apple guy thought their Wifi went out for a bit. Has anyone had an equally bad store demo experience, then bought it anyway only to find MUCH improvement out of the store building regarding EDGE? It would have to be a BIG improvement. I realize there might be issues with all the computers, walls, others trying the net on the demo phones, but it was really rough to the point where I might not even bother with the net. I tried doing a speed test but couldn't even get any of them to load. The Apple guy felt they all used Flash and that's why. I tried DSLreports. He tried others. He told me to try coming back on a slower day, but I know there are never slower days at my store and won't be as long as the iPhone is in there. I'd really like to get a feel for a real life surfing experience but can't see how it's possible without buying one. But right now, I think we'll wait for a faster service in a future generation? IDK - it was bad except for Google maps. NOTE: Didn't get one yet.
