iPhone 5 - Page 247

post #3691 of 4017
I never have any issues tethering via my iPad 3 over Wi-Fi. Is there a bug with the iPhone 5 related to this feature? I have not tried it with the phone yet, just my iPad.

Would like to help, but I am a little confused on what the issue is. Is this a Spotlight search you are talking about? If so, I don't really use that feature as much as I should.

Speaking of search, the new GMAIL app is a Godsend in this regard. Being able to search your full GMAIL account within the app is wonderful. Apple's own MAIL app was always a complete failure in this regard. My only issue with Google's app is that it feels laggy on occasion. Hopeful this can be fixed over time.

EDIT: Actually I do have one other issue with it. The GMAIL app tends to not auto format text to a readable size as well as MAIL does. By this I mean I often end up having to manually re size text to be able to read it. It's a little annoying, but I see no reason it can't be fixed either.

Yeah, I used Spotlight search to look for something sent in an iMessage It found the result just fine, but only gives part of the message. I tapped the result in Spotlight to go to the message, but it only brings you to the conversation with the person, not to the specific message.

i just realized that i've never used spotlight once since getting an iphone. first thing i always do is turn off spotlight search to save on power.

I got 46 down and 17 up in Plainfield NJ. Technology is ridiculous.

I have the 3GS, the 4, the 4S, and now this 5, and this 5 has miserable battery life so far. I want to hope it's a software thing like the first-release 4S' had (which I have one of, and experienced)

Okay, yeah, that sounds wayyyy worse than what I had previously thought. Looks like it could be a dud, as my initial battery life issues were definitely not that bad. I did have a case where my phone drained 30% overnight while doing nothing, but that quickly went away.

Yeah, I'd get it swapped.

Saw the problem, the iPhone5 can bend. Who ever did this happen?

I have an unlocked GSM iPhone 5 and will be in the US for 2 weeks in March. Can I pick up a prepay sim in any AT&T store? The main thing I want is a decent data plan.

No. You CANNOT use the iP5 on AT&T's prepaid service. The fuckers are requiring a contract for an iP5. T-Mobile or Straight Talk are your 2 best bets.

A girl in the office said she updated her phone last night and now all of her apps crash. Beware.

You're on your third new iPhone? Not through Amazon, I'm guessing?

Oh god no. Directly in store. Exchanges with the unlocked phones are a BREEZE. They don't have to call the carrier. They don't have to switch your plan. They don't have to do SHIT. Just take out your sim card and put it in the new phone.
