I have to say, the new "earpods" really do deliver. I hadn't used them much but decided to give them a whirl. Made the new Bond theme sound AWESOME

I think they changed policies between the 4 and 4S. I had a 3G, 3GS, 4, then they did something iirc that changed the policy and I decided to wait for the 5.

Up until the 4S I made about $100 every time I upgraded by selling the phone.

AT&T used to offer early upgrades, then it changed to just an early upgrade for account holder, now I don't think they do any of those anymore.

I really like my soft shell RocketFish case. I have the black/clear case. It's snug and maintains the slim lines of the phone.

Didn't want to upgrade because I'm waiting for a jailbreak for 6.0, but it fixed some of the problems I had (camera flash, and wifi)

Honestly I have a bunch of cases, and the best balance is the Speck CandyShell Grip. It isn't too big and has a lip for the screen, so if you drop it from arm or ear height the screen is very unlikely to break.

I have 3 others.

Actually I'm going to start a thread in about an hour.

What's wrong with the WIFI range? My range seems to be pretty good.

With my 4s I would have full wifi on 2 floors of my house (router is on the first floor), getting great speeds. Only when I would go to the third floor I would get less bars and less speed, but still manageable. At work I could be anywhere in my shop and get full wifi, hell even when I left work I would still be connected at the stop light in front of my shop.

With my 5, I lose wifi strength on my second floor although it is still connected, just no where near as quick. At work I lose wifi almost completely if I go to the back room and if it stays connected the speeds are awful. If I step outside it disconnects from wifi also.

Update didn't help
