Not to mention it has some sweet features if you check out the video on their website. One of my favorites is you can do multiple screens so say.. watch a tv episode at the top while you surf the JI funny pics thread.
    I never use the phone for cals...you know, because Im such a people person. On the flip side, thats all my wife uses one for. I got my wife a kindle fire, and the only app she uses it for is Words With Dooshes

    (or aka 'Talking To Your Husband')

    Hahahaha .. Women have hilarious usages for expensive electronics. Yeah I have a similar hatred for people. When a call comes in I just ignore it and pray a text accompanies it so I don't have to go into a phone call blind. Too dangerous.

    The only phone I can get for free right now...is the phone I already have.

    I "pre-sold" my current iPhone 4 for $180 to Gazelle. Just have to ship it by Oct. 10th.

    I know this will make me look even more like a :cane_shaker: - but I was watching the news showing these losers standing online and camping out to get the new iPhone....I mean.... seriously?

    I don't even think I would stand online for a new gaming system, like the Xbox 720 or PS4....

    Yeah. No way. Granted I feel kinda loser-ish for staying up to midnight to preorder a new iPhone but at least I was in bed by 12:15 and they sent the thing to my house via UPS today. Who has time to stand on a line???

    For those that got the iPhone 5, some nice wallpapers. Gloves for lock screen, uniform for home screen, looks good.

    After a day on iOS 6 I'm forming a few opinions...

    1. Lots of little incremental updates to look and feel, buttons, etc. Mostly positive but may take some getting used to.
    2. Tried the Maps and turn-by-turn directions today and it worked better than I expected.
    3. "Do Not Disturb" feature seems cool, basically turning off notifications for a set period of time.

    The look of maps is terrible, woefully lacking in spots. Fortunately I have TomTom, so it won't impact me with regards to directions, but I am concerned about how it works in apps like Cyclemeter. Haven't tried yet, will probably do so later today.

    And the irony.

    TomTom helped make the new iOS Maps app.

    Really? Well, they missed the boat on the top-down view, because some stuff is barely recognizable.

    Broke down and bought the new iphone today. Aesthetically, it's a very well designed piece of electronics. So sleek. The longer shape fits better in my hand, I think.

    Same here. Gazelle is the way to go. Now hopefully the iPhone 5 ships within the next week or two.

    You'll love it.

    If you don't have LTE coverage in your area turn it off in Settings, will improve battery life.

    Instead of AT&T logo in upper left corner, will say LTE and your phone will be surfing faster than it ever has before.

    Check AT&T LTE coverage map for availability. LTE is the best thing about the 5 but limited coverage right now and the phone sniffing for it every 10 seconds doesn't help. Try your phone in Manhattan on LTE you'll be blown away.
