Just got a i4s phone and was wondering if there are any hotspots inside the Clink or in the event center?

I've never been able to get it to work but I'm probably just an idiot.

Yes, technically there is. However, it always seems to stop once the game starts.

It's incredible hard to get any kind of radio signal with 60,000+ people all trying to do the same thing.

I've had no problems making calls or texting.

I think long term the plan of the NFL is to have every stadium WiFi-enabled. That will be a huge source of revenue for getting access to NFL streaming services etc. The NFL is targeting the Fantasy market but there could be other on-demand services they can attach to the stadium experience.

The wifi for the hand-held devices they used to rent out worked perfectly.

No offense meant to anyone but, if you are spending whatever it takes to buy a ticket, attend the game and share in the experience, WHY THE CRAP ARE YOU WORRYING ABOUT YOUR DAMN PHONE!

I like to check out .Net and other sites in between breaks and chat it up with friends about the game. It's not like the game is one continuous flow of action, so I'm pretty everyone else has other reasons as well.

I don't understand the fascination with being on your phone at the game. Never have.

I tried to text friends from my phone and had a brutal time connecting while in the stadium. I wanted to send pics from my seat and of myself there finally. Being on a phone (for me texting) during a TO or quarter break is more fun than watching the stupid cheerleaders.

Well I do remember one time you called me from the stadium after one of our guys ran a kick back for the winning score. lol

Thanks again by the way, could barely hear you with all the crowd noise.

:D

I was just thinking about before the game while I am sitting in the event center...I always get down there early and hang there for a while before the doors open.

Why'd you get a 4s? That is so last year.

A friend of mine works for ATT and got the 5 and gave me his for free and my contract just ran out on my old phone so I am free.

That wasn't (since they don't support them anymore) WiFi. The FanVision handhelds and their older versions all used a low powered UHF signal. As far as I know, CLink has no WiFi. There is/was a big push to get WiFi into all the stadiums, but they fell short of that goal this offseason at CLink. We are supposed to have it next season.
