Users in U.S. complain about wi-fi signal

Those thinking of selling their old phones and using the cash to help fund an iPad may want to be a bit cautious before committing to the new Apple toy.

The wireless device, which has been described as a giant iPhone by some, is due out in the UK at the end of April, but the launch in America this past weekend has been met with dismay by some of the 300,000 customers who bought it on the first day of release.

According to Techcrunch, scores of unimpressed people have left comments of complaint on the Apple support site saying that the wi-fi is faulty and shows either no signal or a very weak one.

One disappointed customer said: “It’s dropping down to one bar in a part of the house the most other devices, including my MBP and my iPhone, get full service. The WiFi is so dense in our house that I often get signal outside on most of my devices.”

Another angry complaint stated: “Not spending $500 on something I cant even use. Its going back tomorrow.”

However, this hasn’t stopped Apple chief executive Steve Jobs from celebrating the release of the new device. He said: "It feels great to have the iPad launched into the world it's going to be a game-changer; iPad users, on average, downloaded more than three apps and close to one book within hours of unpacking their new iPad."

Sell your old phones in readiness for the UK release of the Apple iPad.
