My new iPhone 5 — 2 Comments

  1. I will be interested to hear if the map software on your new iPhone is as bad as reported. I’m not planning to jump to iOS but I use GPS and maps a lot and I’m always curious about how they perform on other people’s phones.

    As you may know, Softbank is trying to acquire the Sprint system here. Your experience sounds like they will be just as inept as the other networks when it comes to customer service.

  2. Oh, yes. Worse. But that’s not an iPhone 5 problem as much as it is an iOS 6 problem in general, which affects all models of iPhones and iPads over the last couple of years, including my iPhone 4.

    In Tokyo, for example, they don’t even show the block numbers on the maps, which is like leaving off the street names in the U.S.

    I can use in the meanwhile. And I hope Google does offer an iOS app of their own.

    Softbank is an… odd company.
