I've run into way more cheaters on SWF than WWF. I've played against three people in the last day who barely topped 100 point the first two rounds, then score 800+ points on the last round.

How is it possible to cheat in SWF?

Screen cap and exit your game then go to a cheating website and plug in your letters and it will give you all possible words. Then resume and cheat.

I wish they made it so if you exit the app mid game it would forfeit.

That is dumb. So it's basically the same as the Words cheat. :face:

The only people I play words with friends with are the one who I know don't use cheat sites.

Nothing like having a friend complain about letters and then busting out a 65 point word.

My record for Words with Friends is 81 points and 75 points for 1 word. My brother had 101 points for a word. Not cheating. Just have to hit up triple word and maybe triple letter too.

I had around 120 once I can't even remember what the word was but it started with a J on a triple letter and also was a triple word. It was a pretty simple word but those 2 things gives you 90 for the J alone.

Not exactly iPhone App related but I need some advice from you all.

I've decided to go back into the workforce and have accepted a job with a consulting firm. Part of the compensation package is that the firm will pick up my cell phone expenses.

I'm expecting to be on the road up to 80% of the time. Since I'll be spending so much time in airports, in hotels, on airport shuttles, etc... I've decided I need an unlimited data plan. (I'm thinking that I'll be using the "hot spot" feature to provide internet connectivity for my laptop in those situations as well. I also expect to be using the phone for a lot of business calls. I've decided to purchase an iPhone 4s 64GB.

Does ATT drop as many calls as I've heard? I'd hate to have to keep reconnecting to business clients because of dropped calls (that would be frustrating). Should I go Verizon? They're quoting me $180 a month for unlimited data, voice and text.

Anyone have any suggestions or recommendations for me? TIA.

Edited: to reflect proper iPhone model number.

I haven't had trouble with AT&T, but I think it depends on location.

Best I ever played was jazz using TL and TW, that's 153. Most times that doesn't happen though.

This

Different carriers are better in different areas... I forget which service my gf had, but it worked great in Pittsburgh and was absolutely horrible in DC

So talk to people who are around you, but the only problem would be you're traveling lol (I think in general Verizon is usually pretty good in most areas)

Thanks Ian.

For those of you that use the "data plan" portion a lot, do you find yourself exceeding 5GB a month?

I'm probably going to use the "Hot Spot" feature to send emails and update documents from airports and other places where I don't have access to "Free Internet". I'm just trying to get a handle on how much data a heavy iPhone user can expect to go through in a month.

I don't have high speed at home and I use 4-5 GB a month (between on the go and tethering).
I would expect your road use to be a little higher than that, considering that I sometimes connect to one of open networks floating through my house.

You'll probably go through 5GB pretty quickly between heavy work usage through the hot spot and just general surfing. You might even try Sprint because they have actual unlimited data, I know I haven't and my fiancee hasn't had any issues with Sprint coverage or data wise.

Get a 4G Android phone w VZN. AT&T's voice network is terrible; I work with a bunch of iPhone users and they can't get a signal in our office if they are more than about 10 feet from an exterior wall. I've heard no good stories coming from users in NYC and San Francisco as well.

Who is quoting you $180/mo? Does that include the wifi hotspot card? We have unlimted data and texting and 700 mins per phone on two numbers and our combined bill is only like $150.

Yeah... Thanks for the advice!

It was the premium Verizon plan... 12G data, Hotspot and unlimited text. I ended up not going that route though.

I ended up going down there this morning and worked with a pretty good sales rep who got me into a decent plan.

Because the iPhone doesn't support 4G and the tethering functionality is important to me, he sold me a Samsung Galaxy Android tablet w/ a 4G plan and an iPhone 4s 64GB without the hotspot functionality.

I ended up paying about $429 upfront for the Samsung that I didn't plan on, but the monthly reoccurring cost is around $129 for everything so I'm pretty happy.

Now the problem is that I'm going to be carrying around an iPad, Laptop, Galaxy and a Laptop when I'm travelling. Seems excessive. Good thing all of the devices (except the Laptop) are fairly small and lightweight.
