It sounds like a satellite phone.

A week and a half ago, I bought an iPhone 4, thus switching to AT&T for the first time. Now, when people call me on the iPhone, there is a lag of a couple of seconds between when I stop talking and when they hear me, or vice-versa. The result of this is that we end up talking over one another, or saying "HELLO?" to one another, thinking that they other has not heard what I/they just said, when we are really just waiting out the delay.

Is there life past iPhone?

I'm considering jumping ship from the iPhone. Android is the natural choice, but I'd love to hear from someone who went from iPhone to (gulp) non-smartphone! I'd consider getting a 3G laptop card or a netbook and just a regular phone if there were cost savings in it, but I wonder if I'm too used to the iPhone. Can it be done??? (contains some swearing and anti-Apple rhetoric). [more inside]

It's on the web, but I want it in my pocket. Sort of as a book.

What's the best / easiest way to process / format material I've downloaded or copied from the web to read on Apple's Books app? On a Kindle? If I format for the Kindle, would the material be synced on both devices if I use the Kindle iPhone app as my reader? I've been using Calibre to rip ePubs, but there has to be an easier way than what I'm doing, which takes forever. [more inside]

Have an iPhone / Android password manager w/ backup to computer recommendation?

I've been using Keeper by Callpod on my iPhone to store my passwords. It's been a pretty decent software and I liked the ability to back up my data to my computer. However, they recently decided to start charging $30 / year to do what was once free. That's bogus. I'll pay a one-time fee though. A friend of mine has an Android phone and has been using Keeper and would like to switch as well. Any recommendations? Thanks.

Can iTunes Automatically Fill MOST of the Free Space?

I like that iTunes will automatically fill the free space on my iPhone with music, but I'd like it to do so only to a certain point, leaving a few hundred MBs available in case I want to shoot a quick video or download a particularly large app. Is this possible?

GTD: permanently display google tasks todo list on my wall (next to corkboard)

what sort of device can I buy to show my google tasks next to a corkboard, so I see them on my way out the door? do any photo frames do wireless sync? my first thought was a cheap old itouch, but the screen is tiny, and it does more than I need. low power use would also be a plus (i.e. not a laptop or cheap desktop with wall mounted monitor, which I also thought of - I do have an extra 17" sitting around) I could consider switching to another tasks app if required for the best solution, though I do enjoy gtasks in gmail and calendar.

pdf wtf imho

I want to read pdfs on my iphone, but unless the pdf was created with larger than normal text, it's generally too small to read. They don't use the available space efficiently and there is often large margins that could have been used to enlarge the font. Here are some shots of what I'm talking about. I've read that epub is the format I am looking for but haven't been able to find my pdfs as epubs (the books I get are mostly textbooks or from small authors that sell their books on their own sites (like Smashing Magazine), not through e\retailers who may have multiple formats), and converting via online services or desktop apps like Calibre have not been successful, especially for large documents...

Which free iPhone case should we get?

As a new iPhone owner, my wife can choose from one of seven different free cases, but she has no idea which one to pick. Any advice? Which case do you use, and are you happy with it? (Obviously the best thing would be to stop by the Apple store and try them all out, but she's not sure she's going to have the chance to do that before the free case period runs out.)
