when opening a pic in a text message. Friend sent me a picture. I shut off the phone and turned it back on and it was ok. Not sure why it does it.

Not specifically that, but I did have an issue yesterday with the CAMERA opening WITHIN the text message, so maybe they correlate..

Hope they do release an update to fix small bugs soon though... I'm thinking 6.0.1 or 6.1 will be out before the end of the month

While driving I can't one hand the phone, like I said this was the main reason from me getting a superior phone like a GS3 or something - there all too big.

Okay, well I'm not talking about all that.... I'm talking about you "winning" over making $100 switching to the 4s....

IF you were smart, you would have paid the $200 for the upgrade to the 16gb 5, SOLD it for $900 on ebay or CL, then buy a used 4S for $350...

$900-($350+$200)=$350 you could have made, that would be "winning"... Instead, you get the
That is entirely too much work when I can mail it in, paypal me money, new phone from AT&T store.

I will have to take a picture with a different phone to show you. It's basically wedge PORTRAIT style in the gauge cluster. I can still see MPH too. I'll post a pic when I can.



Agree. After having the 4 for 2 years, I sometimes think my 5 is NOT in my pocket because of the size/weight difference.

I played with both. I like the 5, I just won't buy one.

And the lightning connector, aside from the fact the iPhone5 is the ONLY apple product that doesn't use the 30 pin connector, can't support the phone. I guess places like my iHome, gym - these places have the 30pin connector and a mounting base that the adapter won't work on for structural reasons. The biggest draw back to the 5 is the new connector and maps. I played with the GS3, my 4s, and iphone5 last night. The 5's size difference is barely noticeable, but then again I've always been behind a rev or 2 on iOS for jailbreak reasons.

You kids enjoy the 5, you can not sell my on the price. If I wanted a bigger screen and LTE, I would of gotten a android years ago.

I have the 4s for a very specific reason. I don't see how all you fanboys don't get this lol

Edit: I do like Siri though, the voice to text is nice. And to you guys with bulky cases...stop it. Spend some money, get a nice thin case - no brick like the otterbox.

Honestly, that's just dumb and lazy...What you're saying is, you don't like to have more money... You're like that baby on the Jimmy Fallon commercial.

The 5's size difference is barely noticeable
Wrong. You say you played with it for the last two weeks, when it hasn't even been out two weeks... "played with it" means it wasn't yours and you didn't carry it on a daily basis. Your opinion is worthless, you haven't even owned the phone-Just like a android fanboi

You kids enjoy the 5, you can not sell my on the price. If I wanted a bigger screen and LTE, I would of gotten a android years ago.
So you are saying you love iOS then right? B/c you wouldn't have any other reason to keep the iPhone...

I have the 4s for a very specific reason. I don't see how all you fanboys don't get this lol
Sorry, what was that reason? I don't see your point at all.
response in bold.

I always wondered who bought the older versions.

Thanks for solving that mystery.

I might sell this 4s and get one once it's jailbroken.kinda want 4g. I like the 4s a lot, but with hearing about all the speeds people are getting on the 5, I'll upgrade maybe..but again only once the jailbreak is made public.

Got my Otterbox commuter case today, it does add some unwanted bulk to the phone, it is the same thickness as my 4 which I have the same case for, but now I am not so worried about breaking/scratching it. Also the case seems to be better quality than the same case for the 4.

I drink a lot and drop my phone a lot.

Wanted the Commuter, but the color I want is out of stock. I need it ASAP so I ended up ordering the Defender in the same color (actually colors are reversed btw the two cases). We'll see how much thinner it is compared to the Defender on my old 4.

The commuter for the 5 is a lot nicer than for the 4, it fits a lot better and is more snug. Could just be that the case on my 4 is about a year or so old.

I got my usb to lightning connectors today. I have car chargers/monoprice double chargers that I just swap these in. Really not that big of a deal.

Thought about that, but would rather spend $35 on a case than $100 on applecare with a $50 deductible.

I must say, after having the phone for about a week with no case I miss the slim design of it due to the case, but Ill get used to it.

I know what you mean by missing the slim design, I bought a case but took it off after a bit. I will use the case if I know my hands are getting dirty or something, other than that the screen protectors should hold up fine. I want a carbon fiber looking case, Griffen made one for the 4s but I don't see one for the 5 from them yet.
