Yeah I love my touch screen in my truck, would suck if I couldnt use it with the new phone, but most likely I'll just use my ipod and only use the phone in the truck when I stream radio or baseball games.

They are pricey but, for virtually invisible protection, it's solid : https://www.wrapsol.com/
I just checked this link out because I am sick of the InvisiSHIELD (s) that I have been using for so long.

What I do not like is that

A) Their website offers free shipping on orders over 29.99. The product they sell is 29.95. To me, that's shady business practice right there....

B) It says I have to pre-order the film and that "* estimated shipping date subject to change without notice "

...Maybe I'll be stuck with another ZAGG Shield..

So archaic
It's even a nice upgrade from the 4S. Loving the LTE as well. I've been getting 30Mbps+ in Roseville. What color did you get?

I went to my AT&T store at 730 and walked out with a 32GB. Granted, I had a friend hold one for me

Otter Box Commuter case, have one on my 4 and will get one for the 5, thing is awesome, no screen coverage though. Small enough that it isnt a brick but tough enough to handle most situaitons. I have dropped my phone a million times and never had any issues. The outer shell of the case is actually cracked right now from a big drop but the phone is fine.

I've tried most, if not all, of the major screen protectors and these are by far the best. Not to mention you get 2 front covers and 2 rear covers in the package

Can someone put up a couple links to different case sites they like? I wanna browse through and find one I like. Really into the super thin ones that don't add a lot of bulk.

Have I posted this before this thread? I could care less about looks its a phone that spends most of its time on my desk or in my pocket, I just want it to not break if I drop it.

Before iphone 5: "LTE is stupid. Who needs internet that fast on a phone? You'll blow through data plans. HSPA is just as good and uses less power "

After iphone 5: "holy crap this is fast! *posts speed test screenshots*"

Just sayin

I just walked into a local BestBuy and picked one up. They had dozens more when I left.
I did a side by side comparison speedtest, and that sealed the deal for me. LTE is way faster than 3G, and I use my phone as a mobile hotspot for my WiFi ipad all the time.
