IceTouch Connect Timeout

Hi ZeroC,

Have you guys played around with the connect timeout for the various interfaces in the iPhone?

The usual 10 second timeout for the wifi interface seems to work well, but it's not that great for 3G and even more so EDGE. Particularly, I find when the iPhone is moving swiftly (ie. in a vehicle), it takes significantly longer to obtain a connection. I'm curious to learn if you've done any testing for the best values.

Thanks,
Pete

    Hi Pete,

    No we didn't do extensive experiments to figure out the best timeout value. During our testing, we didn't have any issue with a 10s timeout using the 3G or Edge network so that's what we used for the demos. It's quite possible that this timeout might be too low in some circumstances.

    Cheers,
    Benoit.

    Thanks Benoit,

    I'm sure the results will vary depending on network quality and congestion in the device's location. I will have to rely on beta testers for this. If I determine some values from beta testers complaining, I will post here for others to benefit.

    Pete
