I just got my code a few days ago. Looking at http://www.ingress.com/intel
there seems to be a lot of activity in my area. Just not way too close to my house.
The app plays very slow on my Infuse phone. My tablet it works great but my tablet is Wifi only. I am still trying to get the hang of this game. I completed training between my phone and tablet. Now I just need to figure out where to start.
