Does keeping your wifi on on your iPhone drain the battery?

Buy a newer phone that has a faster processor. If its your home WiFi, a newer faster router could be the issue or just slow service from your ISP.

I’m thinking about getting the iphone 4… Thanks in advance :P ? My cell phone broke & I decided to upgrade and am thinking about getting the iphone 4. I’ve heard some bad things about it though :(
1.) Is the connection to the Internet slow?
2.) Does it have the mobile version of websites on it?
3.) Does it drop calls? If so how often?
4.) Does it load apps well?
5.) How is the camera on it?
6.) Is there skype on it?
7.) Does it break easily?
8.) Does it have alot of memory?
9.) Do you have an iphone? If so how long have you had it?
10.) Positives & negatives about it?

Below… is any of this true?

Here is the hands-on Apple iPhone review that they don’t want you to see: it’s the 7 bad things about the iPhone that they don’t want you to know. Thanks to our exclusive interview with Shawn King, of the Your Mac Life Show in our exclusive all iPhone scoop edition of our online show Three Things You Should Know, who spent time up close and personal with the iPhone a week before its release, and to some digging on our part, we bring you the 7 things about the iPhone that you’ll never see in an Apple ad, because they don’t want you to know about it.

1. The iPhone browsing and other Internet experience when not using wifi (i.e. when using the native AT&T data connection) is slow as molasses. This is because it uses only AT&T’s Edge connection, and not the faster 3G data connection. The reason for this is that there is not yet a 3G chip set which won’t cause such a significant battery drain on the iPhone that you’d have maybe an hour of battery life at a time. (Source: The all iPhone scoop edition of Three Things You Should Know)

P.S. To make things worse, the iPhone is set up so that it will not ever default to the mobile version of a web site, so not only is it excruciatingly slow, but it insists on loading the full site, not the mobile-lite version.

2. The iPod function will not work if the iPhone is not activated and being serviced by AT&T! That means that, yes, if you buy an iPhone, the iPod function will not work until you activate it with AT&T. And, if you buy the phone and activate it, and then decide to quit using AT&T’s service, and take the iPhone offline, you will no longer be able to use its iPod function. It becomes a $600 paperweight. (Source: The all iPhone scoop edition of Three Things You Should Know and AT&T representative)

3. To activate the iPhone you must connect it through iTunes, either after you take it home or, at some Apple stores, through a special system they will have set up. The very act of connecting the iPhone to activate it automatically extends your AT&T contract by two years – each time the iPhone is reconnected and reactivated! To quote the AT&T representative, “If you take it activate it, and then deactivate it and give it to your sister, and she hooks it up to her computer and activates it, that’s another automatic two year contract,” (or extension of your already-existing AT&T contract). And if you deactivate the iPhone, and then months later decide to reactivate it yourself..yep..you have just extended your contract by two year again! [Note that the AT&T rep said the latter was "likely", and wasn't 100% certain about the last scenario because "we won't even have the final information ourselves about that until Friday, but it's a safe bet."] (Source: AT&T representative)

4. It’s true that there is a slot for a SIM card in the iPhone. It’s also true that your current AT&T SIM card won’t work with it. Or vice versa. This means that unlike nearly every other set of SIM-based phones within the same network (such as AT&T or T-Mobile), you cannot swap your SIM card back and forth between two or more phones. If the iPhone is going to be your phone, it’s going to be your only phone. Because if you want to use another phone on the AT&T network, you will have to have AT&T deactivate the iPhone, and you will have to get a new SIM for that other phone. Want to switch back to the iPhone? You’ll have to reverse the process. (Source: AT&T representative)

5. The data plan for the iPhone is a different data plan then AT&T’s current Medianet package. This is, according to the AT&T rep, because the iPhone needs to access the virtual voice mail, and that makes it an entirely different data plan. This is one of the reasons that your iPhone SIM card will not work with any other AT&T phone, or vice versa (see above). (Source: AT&T representative)

6. Getting used to the virtual keyboard is not nearly so easy as Apple would have you believe. In fact, it is rather difficult and has a fairly steep learning curve. You will learn it, but it may take a few days, and you have to, and we quote, “trust the phone.” (Source: The all iPhone scoop edition of Three Things You Should Know)

7. In all of the iPhone commercials, marketing material, and videos, ever see them talk up the camera? No? Here’s why: it sucks. (Source: The all iPhone scoop edition of Three Things You Should Know)
