Wanna buy my old iphone?

I got the new Iphone. I gave in after a head to head downloading contest of www.dell.com, and it took my old phone 45 seconds longer. I'm also seeing worse performance on the Edge network recently.. and since time is valuable.. I got the new phone.
The rates will actually come out about equivalent after my 19% dell discount which didn't apply to the old plan, but does with the new one.
I'm also hoping to sell my old phone for about $150... so I should've upgraded earlier. Wanna buy my old iphone?

Sunday was pretty chill, mostly Andy and I just hung out. We had dim sum at the Shanghai place which I think is just way too crowded and slow, and stressful since more and more people have discovered it.

Then we hung out at a bookstore, went home and chilled.

Today I am tired. Oh oh. I sense a possible cold coming too, must take vitamins when I get home.

That is mindboggling. 45 seconds LONGER ? May I ask aproximately how long the two phones spent downloading that single page ?

This sounds horribly much like the old modem-age all over again, I just tested, and from my PC at work showing www.dell.com (including a full refresh so all external pictures, javascript-files, css-files takes aproximately 5 seconds. And that's on a crappy line from hell, we've literally got 2Mbps or something, shared between 50 employees.

Re: amazing
We only started counting after the 3G iphone was done.

but I just tested with my new phone (though I'm in a different location now)
8 seconds to load with wifi
13 seconds to load without wifi.

yeah, i'm glad i moved over, this phone is much faster.
