I think you'll be alright. The wrapsol isn't that thick is it?

Top left.
I ordered this bumper and will leave on my existing wrapsol but am open to other suggestions : http://www.amazon.com/Photive-Hybrid...phone+5+bumper

Really frustrated that the phone is this easy to scratch. My iphone4 fell with the wrapsol multiple times and never had an issue as the bezel wasn't left unprotected
Hate to say I told you so.... Again, GRIFFIN REVEAL, covers EVERY part of the bezel and the back, but clear so you can still see the nice anodized back.

+1 only downside is that it gets dirty on the inside of the clear back and I hate taking it off.

Yup and it doesn't scratch at all.

My iP5 is sucking up battery like no tomorrow now. Midway through the day and I'm at 36%. It goes down ~7% an hour just sitting still. Wifi/LTE disabled, no programs running in the back, iCloud disabled.

Awesome, do you have exchange email on Push? I can only get 5 hrs but I have one push account.

PS It has been noted that if you have LTE off it does not save you battery life (considering you have full LTE bars and just want to use 4G to save battery)

I rely on my email for work and such so I keep push on... I can see losing a little bit of usage but I am starting to think there is something up with my battery.

As per Macrumors, I restored and "started as a new phone" lets see if I can get any gain in usage. Otherwise I am going to Apple to exchange

Finally ordered mine, Verizon 32gb black. Ship date of 11/16........

I figured I would have been able to just walk in the store and pick one up by now. Oh well, I'll wait a few weeks I guess.

It's worth it! It shouldn't knock your socks off, but it is the most "solid" phone I've owned overall.

I was a Blackberry user until Verizon released the 4 and never looked back. Looking forward to the LTE, faster processor, and the screen. Most of my friends are S3 users, so of course I took tons of flak for being a "fan boy". LOL. It's hard to change when you use iPods in every vehicle, have a MAC, an iPad 2, and the wife also uses an iPhone (4 for now). I'm comfortable with it and the OS, so I stick with what I know.......

You should pick up an appletv too. The entire ecosystem will be complete. Haha, I have a few of them.

The rocketfish clear soft cover is good. Decent protection and of course, it's clear. It won't scratch the phone like the Griffin Reveal (which I had for a couple of days) and it won't get stuck to clothing (inside pockets)
