1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    I'm here. :happy:

    Can report that my IPhone 4 does have battery issues with the recent software update. The curious thing is that it seems to me that it may be lasting as long on a charge as before? So it could be a bug with how it reports the battery life and not indicative of the actual life. Not sure yet, but I'll report back if I find out anything.

    Podcast app is ugly and laggy. Not Apple's finest moment.

    :)

    A little, next time I would appreciate a good morning.

    My battery life was really good yesterday, lets see how today goes. Last week it sucked. Maybe it's just psychological :paranoia:

    So if I decide to ditch Sprint and go with Verizon, will all my apps and settings automatically be downloaded to the new phone once I sign in with my Apple ID? I'm backing up daily to iCloud.

    I have an issue. For some reason all of my facebook contacts updated into the contacts in my phone, if I already had a contact created for them it made a new one with info like their AOL handle, other emails and such like that. I have a billion contacts now and most of them are doubles. WTF? How do I get rid of this? anyone else have this issue?

    you decided to be a hipster and link your facebook without reading the prompts huh :)

    You should be able to get rid of the duplicate contacts by unlinking your Facebook account and then relinking it and unselecting "sync Facebook contacts"

    Facebook is the one app that doesn't seem to integrate well, and it's all the little things. Like uploading a picture, half the time I want to tag somebody the screen bonks out, and nearly 98% of the photos I load I tag my wife in (even if she's not in the actual picture. The other day I tagged her as a mop.), and yet when I type in her name I always get my 10 friends with the same first name before she pops up. No intelligence is applied.

    Unnecessary, just go into facebook setting sand turn off access to contacts, calendars, etc.

    Yep, thanks. This worked. Phone settings, then facebook and I disallowed contacts and calendar.

    yeah I guess that also works, I didn't bother linking facebook so I didn't think about that.

    I really like the simple aluminum case from exovault, but I am worried that even if I drop the phone the alumiuim won't really absorb the shock and just transfer it breaking the screen. It might be more cosmetic than functional. I shot them an email about it. I might just walk in the factory and check them out though. I can walk there from where I live.
