If you have been reading Apple Mac HQ lately you’ve probably noticed the irregular posting schedule I’ve kept for the last month or so. I’ve been traveling a TON for work and just haven’t had the time to post. I’ve been all over the Southeast (GA, TN, KY, VA, WV, NC, SC, AL, and PA) in the last month or so and it will finally come to an end this week. I’m off to Europe at the beginning of June, but once I’m back you’ll see my regular posting schedule return.
Traveling this week in Western West Virginia, I noticed something with my iPhone. My iPhone became an iBrick for about a day and a half. For about 1.5 days I had no cell signal, much less an EDGE connection. I’ve been without EDGE before (Wyoming), but to have no cell signal for so long is unusual. We weren’t in National Forests or Wilderness, where having a cell signal is quite unusual, we were simply driving down a state HWY.
I’m currently in Bluefield, WV with a great cell and EDGE connection. But if you live in the hills of Western West Virginia, you might want to think twice about getting an iPhone. Based on my experience, I wouldn’t recommend it.
