    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.

    I love my Iphone, but I'm really kinda sick of how poorly the email inbox works. It doesn't update in real time, so I open the box and have to wait like 5 seconds for it to refresh. Wazzupwitdat??!!1

    Which color of iPhone 5 would you all recommend? The black does look appealing, though I've read that it can scratch very easily (causing it to look horrible very quickly).

    I have Verizon and even in NYC, where it is supposed to be so great I feel like LTE rarely works. I do notice that before hurricane Sandy it was much more reliable, so maybe there is still infrastructure damage, or perhaps more people are on the network fucking it up.

    LTE is not so great in the city. It is VERY fast in North NJ though. I got 49 MBPS in Sayreville [​IMG]

    edit: on ATT.

    For some reason I can't enable Wi-Fi on my iPhone4. Was working fine but recently booted me off and switched to 3G. The Wi-Fi "button" seems slightly greyed out compared to say Bluetooth. Just did a complete restore and upgraded to 6.1.2. Nothing.

    Any thoughts?

    You can't open the wifi menu in settings or it just doesn't connect once you've entered the password?

    Are there any good/best ways to stream movies to an Iphone? I was hoping I could get Hulu or Amazon Prime Video up and going but haven't had success after playing around with it for a couple minutes.

    Never seen that before, might need to make an appointment at the apple store. Have you tried resetting network settings?


    Streaming from the web or at home over a home network? I use AcePlayer to stream videos from my home network to my ipad. Over the web I think Netflix is your best bet.

    Left hand - when you go into settings, before you click on wi-fi, what does it say next to it?

    ok. can you click on it so that you can turn it On, or is that where the problem is? i've never heard of not being able to switch it on and off before, so if that's the case, then I think you'll have to go full-on restore.

    Yes. I can get to the Wi-Fi page but can't toggle the slider from OFF to ON. And as I said the entire line is greyed out.

    Did a full restore yesterday and upgraded to the latest OS, but no luck. Could it be that the wireless 'antenna' has failed? I'll take it in as I want to sell it, but man I'm getting really tired of apple.

    just wanted to make sure we were on the same page.

    well, there's a 200 page thread on the Apple support forum about this:

    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4310121?start=0&tstart=0

    ALL sorts of suggestions, no real fix. Are you using 6.1.2?

    this was a fix in one of the threads:

    this is a well known problem with iOS. they should replace the phone for you for free, or at least give you something comparable.
