Yeah? I'll try and give it a go at some point. Haven't played around with it at all. Is the recognition actually on? If I say "hey i'll be at the restaurant 5 minutes late", what are the odds the recipient gets a text saying "hey i'll pee on the fence lawn 5 million times"

Well, I'm not the most tech savy person, but how do you hook up a different router? Do you just run an ethernet cord cord to the Verizon router? Because I did that and it just caused 2 different wireless signals...

You can PM me if you don't want to keep spamming this thread with OT posts lol

When I use it it gets it spot on 95% of the time. And that 5% that messes up are usually simple words like "if" will come out as "is".

U can ask to read the text back before you send.

It actually works fairly well when it works; server busy issues.


Regarding the n95, Swiss Army knife of cellphones, it didn't make for a very user friendly experience.

I was a fan of Nokia but that phone was not easy to use.

U can argue that google android has more functionality than iPhones yet doesn't have the polish of apple

Unless you have a bad stutter, or other speaking fault, it's fairly accurate.

I just started using Siri for setting reminders, works pretty well.

They significantly improved Siri w/iOS6. She even recognizes sh!t like "Who's leading the NFL in rushing yards." haha

Easiest way.
Go into your router and change the IP address it is NOT 192.168.1.1
192.168.0.1 or 10.10.10.1 or something will work.
Then run a cord from the router into the WAN port of your router.
Connect everything to the new router / wireless and ignore the old one.
Preferably you can go into the ISP router and disable the wireless.

Legit, curious if she uses Google for that. Wish she could have given me a real time status on CJ Spiller before kick off yesterday.

Im still not sold on the 5. The new features just doesn't blow my dress up. My 4 does everything i need. I guess I'll be like some 3/3gs owners did and wait for major improvements over the 4/5.

Siri giving FF advice. Now that'd be improvement.

I also like that Siri can now launch apps for you.

My daughter desperately wants to chat with Siri. However Siri's interpretation of what she says is beyond hilarious. I think it's tweaked towards adult's voice or something because Siri (My b1tch) understands me just fine.

Do you use a different wireless router or just the one provided by Verizon?
Use a direct connection and test again. It should be much closer to your advertised price.

A lot of factors affect wireless performance. Do you have 5Ghz N on your router and laptop? 5 Ghz isn't nearly as crowded as 2.4Ghz, and it's also faster, but has a smaller radius.

Distance is the biggest factor in determining speed. Try place your router higher.
