Still can't find any anywhere in Florida. I got it during that brief window when they updated their local quantities. Ebay or Craigslist. Maybe Tampa02e46 wants to buy it from me, since he likes them so much?!

i was close to 5gb last month with my iphone 5.


gotta love unlimited plans.

Possibly the worst.....depending on how/why you define it that way.....but when I only pay $52 AFTER taxes for an iPhone5 with unlimited everything, I can't complain at all. I will have LTE coverage in my area eventually.....


....and still have a lower monthly payment than just about anybody with a modern smart phone period. Had it not been for upgrading from my Palm to the Epic 4G (...and then the Google Nexus S 4G), I would still be paying $30 AFTER taxes for unlimited everything. Gotta love being grandfathered on old(er) Employee Accounts.

but for now you're paying for LTE that you can't even use.
im fine with paying $30 over what you pay for, the quality is worth it for me.

the 3G on sprint on an iphone is like EDGE speed compared to AT&T's.

Thanks! What color did you wind up going for yours? I decided to match my 323i car color and went with the teal/turquoise color.

Question for you and/or the other folks here... I'll be giving my old 32GB black iPhone 4 to my wife to replace the one she has now (white iPhone 4 16GB). I plan on selling her white 16GB iPhone 4... any idea how much I could sell this for? I was going to research this anyhow but figured I'd ask the question here in case any of you have already done the research and wouldn't mind sharing.

I'm paying the same price that I was paying for my Google Nexus S. Actually, scratch that....$8 LESS because there is no Equipment Replacement Insurance on the iPhone because of the AppleCare option. I'm patient! I don't conduct that much business over my cell phone, and for what little that I actually do it's fine....

...for now.

All I care about is the ability to send Chad inappropriate pictures in a timely manner.

I actually just went BLACK with the case. I know. Lame. lol.

I sold my 16GB 4 for $225, but I believe that is the lower end of what you can get for a 16GB.

Speaking of cases, I'm finding myself strangely attracted to the case below (see attached pics) with the "car theme". I may give it a try just for laughs and worst case if it sucks from a functional standpoint I'll just go back to my Griffin Reveal case. Would be cool to find a BMW roundel sticker to cover the Cobra emblem though, lol.

Awesome... now I know if I can't find a BMW sticker to place over the Cobra emblem I'll just stick an autobot symbol on there.

On a separate note, just saw this apparent iPhone 5 issue reported...

Not sure if this is old news.. But I just downloaded an app that has flash for iPhone. "Photon flash" works like a charm for firstrowsports.

Could that have to do with the drop that sorta split it open?
