First, do you have Onova Extended app? If you do, you need to delete it.

If you do not have that app, try resetting your network settings.

So I've been told. I get this stupid dot in my all my bright photos:

I finally got my phone yesterday. Compared to the 4, it's honestly not that different. The screen size is much nicer as well as Siri (coming from the 4). My battery seems to be dying a lot quicker than my 4...maybe it's because I've been using it more than normal since it's new. I turned LTE off since I thought maybe that was draining it. iMessage is super fast with LTE.

Also, I got $120 back in activation from chatting with AT&T for 5 minutes online. Overall after 1 day, the phone seems like a nice upgrade, especially if you've had the 4 for a while.

Something seems fishy with you. Maybe it's because you exchanged a phone for a scratch you caused (iirc)! Karma's a biitch?

You can appreciate an amazing phone, or sell it without even giving it a shot. And based on the fact that you are paying off a subsidy with your contract, you're really not making $700.

"Amazing" is subjective! As far as the "subsidy" is concerned.....

...What exactly am I subsidizing? I'd be paying the same amount over the next two years regardless of whether or not I have a contract in place (..and my plan isn't affected by taking advantage of the upgrade), so if it nets me $700 liquid dollars in my pocket, that's a win for me.

Let us know how it goes coming from a Nexus S. Do you have LTE coverage?

Incorrect. Please reread my original post:

I'm still using the phone with the nick on the back. The only issue is, it likes to turn off every now and then.

No. My Google Nexus is on the 4G WIMAX, and Sprint's LTE network isn't widespread yet. We don't have LTE here in Rancho yet, but according to Employee Accounts we should have it within a few months. I'll definitely keep you posted. I'm giving this iPhone a shot.

Let's hold off on opinions until you have had it for more than 48 hours, kay?

Yea, I mean kinda... You are going to need a cell phone either way. At least you come out even with selling the iPhone, with other phones you would be losing money.
