As I leave my house, my 4S is still on my home wifi network. I walk downstairs and hit the sidewalk. Somewhere between ten steps and two blocks later, my streaming radio cuts out. If I look down at my phone, I see the wifi icon stubbornly holding on to one dot of coverage — coverage it doesn’t even sense anymore, but is reluctant to inform me about — and then, begrudgingly, the “3G” icon appears to take its place.
I run into this very thing when I go out to the garage to work on Fiats. It’s just close enough that my iPhone can just connect to it, yet too far to actually work, and I suddenly stop receiving iMessages for hours at a time.
When was the last time you called an Android user nitpicky? Yeah.
