Thread: Horrible Cell Phone Data Connection

  1. #1

    Default Horrible Cell Phone Data Connection

    What's up with the horrible data connections. ATT, Verizon, Sprint...all seemed to have problems.
    Txt messages never arrived, were hard to send. Phone app connections were slow or non-existant.
    iPhones, LG's, Samsungs, Droids...everyone I talked to had the same problems.

    Unless you are a scientist or doctor with some life saving data to send it wasn't really a problem.

    That's just what happens when you have 100,000 people trying to use phones in a condensed area. it's pretty simple.

    the promoters actually block your signal, they want you to put your fucking phones away and enjoy the blood, sweat, and tears they have given to bring you this festival.

    That's so strange, everyone I talked to said they could stream the sets they werent at while watching that sets that werent on stream at the same time on their ipads and iphones.

    It was amazing streaming radiohead while dancing to kaskade.

    This year was much better than years past. I was actually able to call friends on the field and I received texts rather quickly. Others years it was a futile attempt, I received most texts after leaving the polo grounds and there was no way a call was going through. And I have AT&T

    The only times I experienced any difficulty with text messages being sent were when I was by the main stage for Bon Iver/Radiohead. I attributed that to the amount of traffic in the area.

    ATT was pretty brutal this year, it was really hard to get texts and calls to go through to meet up with friends. After the 2010 clusterfuck I had great reception last year throughout the entire festival. Not sure how they managed to regress in that department?

    I didn't have any problems this year with ATT. Maybe because I turned all the useless crap (tweets, apps, push notices, etc.) off for the weekend?

    I use At&t, basically my data connection would intermittently go from 3G to gone.. There was also a few times where the phone actually went to "No Service", big deal, i expected it after 2010's clusterfuck.

    AT&T service was practically non-existent this year. And I enjoyed plenty of music, but I still wish I could connect with friends when I need to.

    I was talking to this girl before Miike Snow. Said 70% of the reason she bought her ticket was for Miike Snow. For some reason she couldn't stay off her phone the entire set. To that I say, GTFO and let some one who will enjoy the festival buy a ticket.
