It just got released yesterday... Apparently everyone is doing some serious traveling today.

Apple has updates all the time, and they aren't perfect, they have issues with new releases just like when they released the 4 with the antenna issue. They fixed that though and I never even had a problem.

The maps app will be perfect, any Apple user knows that it will be. If you doubt that, then you don't have much trust in the product you bought-So sell it and get an Android phone.

Why do you Android fanboys keep coming back to this thread? Just leave if you don't like the positive things we are saying, learn to bite your tongue a bit.

Reactions like this are really strange to me--it's as if I've insulted a religion or something I can use and enjoy a product while also understanding there may be shortcomings/bugs/etc. I'm sure they'll improve their 1.0 version of maps, but right now there are clear examples of where it falls short.

It won't be. They'll hold back some of the goodies for the iPhone 6. Possibly 6S.

I spoke with an ATT rep who said that my order looks totally normal and, given that I ordered it at 8am friday the 14th, I should definitely be getting it tomorrow... but I haven't gotten any emails indicating such and it doesn't say "shipped' anywhere


You placed it on the 15th? Does it list the 15th on the web on your order? Did you print out an order confirmation (or get an email)? I got an email and printed my order confirmation page when I purchased on the 14th.. if you have those, fax it if needed to att and demand your phone.
Like I said previously about my order. I ordered an hour and 45 minutes after it was available and mine says it'll be shipped October 5th

Ordered my phone as soon as the phone lines opened (online kept getting a glitch) on Friday the 14th. I got a confirmation hours later at about 1:30 pacific time. I called them and even spoke to a supervisor and they are claiming I accepted the terms and conditions on the 15, which is inaccurate. They said there is nothing they can do to speed up the order process, but that I can cancel my order if I wanted to. Some more

If it wasn't for my unlimited plan, I would switch from ATT in a heartbeat!

I think a lot of people are holding on to their unlimited for no reason. I use my phone quite a bit and don't make to even 1Gb monthly.

This. For months I was commuting to/from NYC on amtrak for work and would tether (jailbroken) my iphone.. even using it for web surfing, youtube watching, etc, I still wouldn't hit my 3 gig limit.

I don't even tether and I've gotten up and past 3GB. Podcasts, app updates, etc... I don't want to wait to get home to do that stuff.

I got a text from ATT yesterday telling me that in order to tether I need to set up a plan. I wonder if they noticed my 4.5gb last month

there's no way you'd hit that each month on just podcasts and app updates. what is the etc you are talking about? apps update every few months if that. are you listening to podcasts 24/7?

Yup. If you didn't order within the hour of the release. Since they sold out the first batch within the hour, you won't be receiving the phone tomorrow.

The hate continues for Jeffro, still hasn't left the thread he loves so much. As much as you guys hate on apple, you sure to spend a lot of time talking about it.

Ordered mine at best buy. Supposed to be waiting for me tomorrow morning
I've learned in the past not to depend on AT&T for release phones like this. Its almost like they get the smallest first batch. In reality it's probably because they have the most orders.
