iPhone 5 Expected to be Delivered Tomorrow - Return it or Keep it ???
Mainly purchased to be used as a stay at home mobile hotspot to use with Desktop and future Notebook but read a lot of stories about WiFi problems it has and how it can be a luck of the draw if you get one with or without the problem, and or that the problem could come in the future.
I am thinking if I don't even bother opening it and just take it right to my AT&T store to cancel this additional line of service and not inqur any fees. I know once I open it and decide I don't want it or find that it does have WiFi issues it will then be too late for me to not pay the $36.00 re-stocking fee being the equipment was opened.
Any input on what I should do? it's says it will be delivered tomorrow 11/20/2012.
Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated till the time being.

You could get quite a few other mobile devices for cheaper that act as a mobile hotspot. It seems like you used that reason to get the 5 and now you are rethinking it.

That is exactly the reason. And also because it was gonna be my first time ever having to see and know what ANY smart-phone is like. Also was gonna be my first time getting to see what a retina display is like as well.

Well it came and after giving it a shot and opening it I had immediately taken notice that the milling work on it was not so nice with a real small nick on the back and scratch at the top on the silver ring area of the phone. Because it was my first time having a smartphone in my hands I figured being I am already gonna be forced with a re-stocking fee that I might as well mess with it for the time being which I did. Honestly it's much of a small hand-held computer is the way I would describe it, only unlike a real full-blown computer its a bit more intuitive. Well being I am done messing with it its going to get returned tomorrow. I guess it was nice while it lasted and maybe something I would have kept if it hadn't been faulty with the marks that was on it. Oh well.

Its cheapest to buy a tablet and use that as a hotspot. Most share plans now only charge $10 for a tablet.
I suggest that you sell the phone on ebay or craigslist. It seems to fetch about $650-700 opened on ebay with no problem.
Buy an ipad mini with 4G for $460.
Move the ipad into the phone's line and get the monthly reduced to $10.
You make about $200 profit in the end and that will cover just about the entire two year contract.
There are cheaper 4G tablets than the Mini too. But I'm an Appler.
