It may have changed back. It was free last night, and free early this morning when I checked around 8am Eastern US time.

Me either. Closing an app with the "x" or by sliding it up keeps me in ProSwitch.

I am LOVING this! Pinch for Overboard, spread for ProSwitcher, double-home for Kirikae, down-swipe for mQuickDo!

In Cydia, click on the "Manage" tab at the bottom, then Sources, then Edit, then Add.

Yes and no. While I am giving them some rope on dealing with the unexpected surge, I give them no free passes when it comes to voice, or the 3G rollout in general.

You mention that some areas are "very bad" - if one of those areas is San Francisco and you are referring to data, you should be aware that data traffic has increased a whopping 2000% (not a typo - two thousand percent) in 2009.

Actually, the apps almost certainly caught them by surprise; until October 2007, Apple was insisting that the only 3rd party content would be via Web apps. The SDK was released in March 2008, and Pandora (for example) wasn't released until July; and many of the other "bandwidth hog" apps were released roughly a year ago. Data usage on AT&T ramped up exponentially after the release of the 3G, which was in July 2008 -- same as Pandora. (http://www.techcrunch.com/2009/10/21/how-the-ipho...

So figure by this time last year they knew they had a problem on their hands. They've obviously been working on it, but in places like San Francisco they've had a 2000% increase in data traffic. (http://digitaldaily.allthingsd.com/20091117/thank...

To think that this kind of capacity is added nationwide in 12 months is to be living in a fool's paradise, my friend.

But, if you think the grass is greener, let's look at Verizon's LTE rollout. In Dec 2008, they announced that they wouldn't begin deployment until 2010.

Then recently, they announced that it will be completed "by 2014" with up to 30 markets rolled out in 2010.

..And the LTE equipment will coexist with CDMA, a much less tricky affair than mucking with your in-use equipment.

But hey, grab a pitchfork and a torch if you must - if Verizon gets an iPhone next year that's LTE capable and you can't use it, I presume you'll call for their heads as well?

Actually, they were probably contractually obligated to do so.

DON'T give them ideas... I don't think Patrick can handle the stress of another post like that first thing in the morning. :D
