Preordered a new wrapsol case for the 5



Mine worked wonders for 2 years on the iphone 4 and, during that time Wrapsol sent me two new ones when my original peeled off in the summer's sun

They are pricey but, for virtually invisible protection, it's solid : https://www.wrapsol.com/

Sorry I didn't mean to be a dick, but can you tell us how it's oddly shaped??? Like all the android fanbois say, it looks the same just longer, but no longer than the S3 or other phones...

Protects from drops and shattered screens. I probably dropped my iPhone4 a dozen or so times over the two years that I had it and never had a screen crack. The "skin" goes over the front, back, and sides of the phone and barely adds any "thickness" to it.

The drop test video shows that the iPhone5 will likely not crack from a 5 foot fall, but I figure why risk it?

As mentioned. Longer. Not wider. I understand people want smaller phones big screens. This just didn't do it for me. Maybe it will grow on me when I see some apps or video. My 4s is already a widescreen which seems of proper proportion and now having received this it "seems" too wide. Just first impression.

It's for people like tampa but with more money than sense.

It's like some people don't understand there will be plenty to go around in a few weeks

Obviously wasn't waiting in line today, was just curious as to when stores will be restocked.
I went to the AT&T store around 10am this morning, there was no line and plenty of phones to go around. I was actually kind of surprised..

Guys as a former iPhone 4 user this has been a massive upgrade.

It's insanely fast - LTE

Love it. I do miss Cydia though .

I don't understand why we can't get a home screen.

So archaic

Yeah I was kind hoping for that type of situation, but I am in Boston so its kind of crazy up here. Walked past an AT&T store downtown around 9:45 and there was a decent size line out there. Walked past again at lunch a little while ago and there was still a small line with signs in the windows to preorder them.

I will swing by an apple store this weekend and just ask. May order and do an is store pickup or get it delivered to my office if I can.

I'm with you. I'm a little upset about that. Ugh. I ran the cable under my carpet and made it awesome too

I have no idea what kind of an idiot paid 1000 dollar premium to have a phone the week early. Anybody that buys a iphone 5 would be an idiot not to sell theirs for those prices.

But I'm sure the price comes down really fast.

I used to think that but many bring these overseas and get more money for them. $1000 is really not that much for an out of contract newly released anticipated device.
