Wow, this antenna scuffing issue seems to be pretty common...it seems like they all refer to the black one...does the white one suffer from this?

Yes but it's harder to notice since its silver on silver.

So I went over to macrumors and it seems that many ip5 come with scratches, dings and dents. Everyone is exchanging them. I wonder if apple will sell these as refurbs?

I've been reading articles about this black scratching. I don't use a case or bumper so it'd be a problem for me if it scratches. I'll read more this morning, but I wonder if I can exchange it for white today.

Would they take it back due to that problem? I'm sure apple is aware of it.

lol, my iphone came perfectly fine... Not one scratch, ding, dent, or anything. Had it naked in my pocket all night last night and was walking a lot. Not one scuff or scratch... You gotta think if they shipped a million phones, there are bound be a couple lemons.

I'm lovin this thing, I played with maps last night for an hour just flying over vegas, NY, & Chicago lol, the 3D rendering is really awesome. Eventually they will get more and more cities on the 3D maps. This is why I love simple updates to iOS.

BTW: like someone said, easiest way to back up is iCloud! SO SIMPLE!

Yes, both models suffer from scuffing. It's just easier to tell on black ones since its been anodized.

Order a Wrapsol case and problem solved (re: case scratching)

http://www.wrapsol.com/

It also will protect the screen from scratches and cracks if you drop it

FWIW, the phone i got from at&t in the mail is perfectly fine

For the apple gurus, I want to take my 4 and give it to the GF and upgrade to my 5. What's the easiest way to move all texts from 4 to 5 and wipe the 4 so she can sync it to her computer for music

Restore the 5 from a backup of the 4, then do a fresh restore on the 4 from her computer.

iCloud man, be careful not to put back your sim card in the 4. Even when the activation screens comes on do not put your sim in. iMessage has a glitch where your text will still go to your 5, and also your old phone. You don't want your gf catching you red handed lol

I was able to play with an iPhone 5 last night. It is much lighter than I expected. I kind of like the heft of the 4/4s.

For me, this was the easiest method...

With iPhone 4, settings>iCloud>storage&backup, here make sure iCloud backup is 'ON'. Now go to >manage storage, this is where you can select what you want to backup.

Go back to storage&backup and it will show "back up now" - Click it and wait....and wait... For me I backed up everything so it look a while b/c I have a lot of pictures and apps. When it's finished it will tell you.

Now grab your 5.

*If you messed up the first time like I did & synced it with the wrong backup, you can go to >Settings>general>reset>erase all content and settings. This will send you back to how your iPhone came out of the box.

If you just took it out of the box, you are ready to sync up to the backup you created on your 4.

Just follow the simple directions on the 5 to sync it with the backup you just created (it will give you a time of day). That's it.

Everything will now look exactly like your 4 does, and have all pictures/contacts/photos.

**If you want your music on it too, plug into iTunes and make sure the only thing you select to sync is music, deselect everything else. Then sync and your phone will be exactly as your iphone 4 is.

Why did they move the headphone jack to the bottom? Wouldn't be able to use my dasmount in my car with my aux input. F that.
