I have AT&T unlimited data. So I assume I will get throttled after 5 gb.
I have never used more than 2gb in any given month in the past. I don't think my habits will change very much with this new phone.

That ping is almost low enough for online gaming lol. Highest download I've ever hit was only mid 30s. 50s is crazy, you must be in a newer market where fewer people are on the network... It's definitely dropped off some in the past year where I am.

First time I went to plug in the lightning connector I accidentally thought about which way to plug it in, no more problem there- love it, and I can confirm the headphones feel great-at least for me. And love the little case for them, hated getting my old ones tangled.

I ordered the "free" zoogue case, and a $5 "Poetic" bumper case on Amazon. (how they are $9)

I should have my bumper case early next week.. It says it shipped.

I used only dirt cheap cases on my 3gs and they served me well. I would have gotten a monoprice case, but they were sold out.. I dropped the ball on that one.

The drop test video shows that the iPhone5 will likely not crack from a 5 foot fall, but I figure why risk it?
That wrap likely does close to nothing in regards to shatters. Some are lucky and some are not as far as iPhones cracking. It depends on where the impact is. But maybe the wrapsol is different. Is it thick? Do you have pictures?

As for shatter resistant films- the new ZAGG Extreme Break Protection thicker film looks interesting. They have an almost absurd video of the film on youtube. I've never liked the texture of ZAGG though.



I got my 5 too! It's very snappy, and the display has deeper blacks and better color than the iPhone 4 display. The form factor is not awkward once you're holding it.

I got an LTE test at 44.5Mbps down and 21Mbps up here in New Orleans. I never have said I didn't want LTE- but I'm glad I now have it without a sacrifice in battery life. This battery seems stronger than my 4's with pretty heavy usage, but thats probably partly because my 4's battery is near the end of its projected life span.

I was the only one that posted a screenshot.. and I never said anything about speed, or HSPA or anything.. my battery is down to 90%, and I probably had it off the charger for an hour.. I have wifi and location services off.
Once I jailbreak, I will probably turn off LTE most of the time to save battery..

I'm not sure I understand this. Born again got 13mbps, a more typical result. 58 is not repeatable day to day, location to location. Sure, it happens now and then (especially in new markets with less traffic) and there have been screenshots posted of similar results on internet forums as long as LTE had been around. If you think the iphone is special and gets that kind of bandwidth all day every day, then you thought wrong.

stop trolling griff. I also have an otter box on my gs3. I think a bumper will suffice for the ip5. Looks pretty durable on the drop test besides the low quality easily scratched bezel.

I know I know, I was just generalizing based on articles around the news and other people. No need to get upset, it was just a joke

I'm failing to see the point of the wider screen. They say its for video but no videos play in that aspect ratio. Also it doesn't take photos in that aspect ratio.
So it seems pretty useless honestly.
