AT&T doing the impossible? There’s an updated app for that

January 30, 2010

A few months ago AT&T introduced an app for the iPhone to mark trouble spots for data and send the information back to the telecom provider. The first question I had was how could you send data to mark where there is no data, where there is no data.

Where most people’s eyes would glaze like I just asked “What is the sound of one hand clapping,” AT&T was bold enough to say it had a magical setup that would send the problem when you got back into better reception.

Well apparently that didn’t work so well and now there’s an updated app for that. Under the instructions:

Mapping Function: Pending Problem Locations
The application is now storing problems that were not successfully submitted as pinned locations.
