where 3g and edge are shown
GPRS. You're in hell.
It's GPRS (General Packet Radio Service). When You don't have 3G nor Edge, you have GPRS. It is extremely slow, a lot slower then Edge.
haha thanks i usually have full bars of edge but last week at country thunder it was going between all three thanks
O = Old school GRPS.
It means your iphone is old.
you guys got it all wrong, it stands for Ohhh **** im ****ed!
Had to be done.
I hope that I never see that little "o" again.......
I had that symbol on my new 3G S while driving through Wisconsin. It was followed by about 50 miles of no signal whatsoever. Gotta love AT&T!
Spoilt people. I don't get EDGE in Australia, it's either spotty 3G or GPRS.
o = oh gawd, where did my coverage go???
"O"prah - advertising her magazine "O". http://www.oprah.com/magazine/omagazine
Yes. Good analogy. But, it's dial-up on a 300 baud acoustic coupled modem.
Edge is therefore a 33.6kbps modem connection, and 3G is like 1.5Mb DSL in an old apartment with bad ground circuits, during a lightning storm.
Well, that's depressing...
Haha I only just realised that the "o" isn't EDGE. I always assumed it was as it only ever goes between 3G and O, and I've never heard of this GPRS before.
Learn something new every day.
OP could have read the manual. Would have saved time, and probably would have learned something new about the iPhone.
Read, as in, there's not an app for that???
Who does that?
What manual? We don't need no stinking manuals!
Edit: I was joking for those who couldn't tell (see below). It was a reference to "we don't need no stinking badges," from some movie I forget the title of.
The manual can be found on the Apple website online and you can also find it by googling, which will give you a pdf.
I disagree! Manuals are there for reference. Apple doesn't spend hours writing a manual for no reason.
Actually, it's "Gotta love WI!"
The signal in this state is horrible, if you drive more than 20 miles north of Milwaukee you'd have better luck with two tin cans and a piece of string
"No Stinking Badges" actually came from the movie "Treasure of The Sierra Madre" of 1948 and has often been misquoted and eventually became a famous quote from "Blazing Saddles" of 1974.....
