Amazon trade-in will be for amazon credit only though. Not a big deal if you shop regularly at amazon.

I have a Dice kit in my car I will need an adapter for.
I have an AV kit in my house I will need an adapter for.
I can't use the common charging cord at the bar, the dock at the gym/office, or any of the lose charging cords I have laying around - not to mention I have to have different connectors for the iPad and iPhone.
I have held one in person, not my cup of tea.

Buying something because its the new thing is retarded, and what feeds the cult Apple machine.

Compare it to a GSIII. I laughed when my coworker pulled that thing out of her purse. I might as well just bring along my iPad. The size of the new iPhone 5 is not really an issue. The other stuff might be, but not really the size.

But yeah, the new connector is annoying as hell.

Yes, I have.

The iphone 4 is the biggest I can use while driving and 1 handing it.


If I can sell my 4 for $180. Buy a 4s for $100, and get the same form factor, same charging connector, faster internals, and a little faster cell radio I'm happy.


I'll keep it for a year or two and see what the iPhone6 looks like.

Must you buy an iPhone from Amazon? If so, what was your out-of-pocket, when all was said and done, to get an iPhone 5?

Edit: Never mind. Just checked and they're offering only $144.50 now.
They sell it used for $539.

What?!?!

You mean you don't want to buy the latest shiny Apple toy just because it's the latest shiny Apple toy??

I agree in that it's not about what features it has and doesn't have to most people, it's just the fact that it's an iPhone. Props to you for deciding based on features you actually want.

It also helps move photos and music from machine to iphone... but it only does it over wifi and while your phone is locked... so you can't use it to access any of that data in a useful fashion.

That's why I was bummed after upgrading iPhoto and to Mountain Lion.. I assumed I'd be able to take pictures or music, load them to this "cloud" and access them remotely.. no such luck.

Solution is to use FlickR for photos and learn to live with music that you can store on your device (or use pandora). Once jailbroken, Grooveshark becomes a solution again but until that point, I'm not sure what else we can do..

Oh, and even from a web browser, you can't access icloud photos... lame
Damn, that's pretty bad. I never really knew exactly how functional icloud was. Apparently not very. Now I see why so many people don't use it.

Don't have another phone around to take a pic, but it just looks dirty. Wasn't able to cleanly apply it, so it just looks like crap now. One of the fvcking tabs came off right as I started, so I couldn't get it to go on well. Going in the trash.

The redesign is nice and is a much better than the 4s. There is much more packed into this new phone besides just the larger display. It's very fast. Much thinner/lighter. 50% more resistant to drops.... etc not even mentioning LTE.

My only complaint is Apple maps. However, I completely understand why Apple needed to break ties with Google over this. The Apps still functions well, just not as detailed.

Perhaps you should stop responding. It's a no-win for you here. :dunno:

Don't throw it away just yet. Go on their site and click warranty... under that tab you can submit the phone you just posted here and either ask for a refund or a free replacement. They'll go whichever route you prefer.

When I installed it on my 4, it came out like yours so I complained. They offered a refund or a second set shipped out free of charge. I asked for a second set to be sent and asked if they could provide any pointers... they recommended the shower setup (load up your bathroom with steam as the heavier air limits dust particles floating around).

It's definitely a "get it right the first time" product as it's not static cling and, in turn, will catch dust or dirt and lodge them on the screen.

But shoot them an email and get a second product or a refund

I didn't buy the iphone 5 from amazon..i bought it at the verizon store, went home sent in the 4 to amazon that day...trade values have dropped a lot since last week, they were at $220 for good and $260 for like new when I traded my GFs in. I sent it in as good condition adn they bumped it up to like new condition(we had all the original packaging and everything even the screen protector that shipped with it). It's only a amazon gift card, but I buy **** there weekly so no big deal plus no hassle of local buyers flaking out or ebay/paypal fees.

Have fun with that OS... They don't make a 8gb iphone anymore sooooo... I honestly Can't even fill up 16gb. What the hell do you need 32 extra gigs on your MOBILE PHONE for??? Maybe just so you can say "Look at all the sh*t on my phone brah!", that's cool and all, but do you actually use all that??

Wait untill they get it and update us, because they hack the price down that they originally say once they get it...

Sold my scratched up 16gb 4 on CL for $225 cash.
