Does anyone here trade stocks on an iphone/smartphone? I am wanting to get one, mainly so I can check the market and trade while out and about. Iíve used friendsí iphones to check the market prices, but I canít trade with them, either because I donít know what Iím doing, they donít have the necessary software on their phones, or itís not possible. Presumably one of the first two. Iíll admit to not being the most tech-savvy person around.
For someone like me who just wants to make calls and trade shares on a phone and has no interest in playing games or having my own virtual farm or downloading porn or most of the other bells and whistles the less than useless retail assistants have tried to use as selling points (I was unable to find even one retail assistant at any phone store who was of any use, and only one of them even knew you could check market prices), whatís best? Iím guessing it is probably a case of them all being pretty much the same, but thought Iíd check to see if someone knows better before I get one.
Any recommendations on who to go with for plans reception etc? Iím currently with Optus and am reasonably satisfied with their coverage (as far as calls go). In Melbourne Iím sure theyíll all be fine, but I sometimes travel out to fairly remote areas, and I spend a large chunk of my time in Kinglake, which frustratingly, none of the carriers seemed to be able to Ďinternet serviceí an iphone in.
Any advice anyone is able to offer would be great
