Good choice on the White.

Same for me. I thought dataplans were silly, my pseudo smartphone was good enough, skipped the first 3-4 generations. Until I needed knee surgery, spend several sessions in waiting rooms, my ride had an iPhone and I kept itching to play with it :jealous:.

Ordered asap.

I originally had an iPhone 3 and the next year my wife got a 3GS. We both said "great, we'll each upgrade every other year and we'll always have one 'new' phone model in the house at all times. We can be cool with the fact that one of us always has a better phone than the other person!"

Yeah... That didn't last long. Now we always order 2 phones together whenever we upgrade.

I had a flip phone forever. I didn't want to pay for data. I finally decided to get the IPhone 4. My husband tagged along. As soon as my upgrade was available I got the 5 (he was right there with me) I love my IPhone. Don't know what I did before I got it (neither does he)

Loving the Note 2 so far haven't had an ounce of buyers remorse. I might consider switching back once they improve iOS, get some powerful maps on there and put a larger display on the iPhone

To each his own I guess. We cant all like the same things.
Even before though I never used the google maps and still dont use the new Apple maps either.
I been a navigon user for many years so I can care less for maps.
Happy with the iOS, will be a lot happier as soon as there's a JB for my i5
The display is an upgrade from my 4S but wouldnt mind a bigger screen. Maybe down the road but 4" seems pretty good so far.

That's how it always starts. I was so against smartphones until a coworker let me play with his iPhone 3G back in 2008. The next month I bought one and have been hooked ever since.
