Novelty warn off yet?

Mine has, now instead of just placing my phone on the table like its a sensitive bomb, I just sorta drop it down. That's when I realised "yep, just a phone now" lol

What about you guys?

yep I'm bored with iOS. Or I'm bored with life, probably both since I'm not even interested in my PS3 or watching movies anymore. I might be in one of those "seen everything done everything" phases lol

The novelty wore off after about a month of having the iPhone 4, but the utility will never wear off.

Seems to happen to me faster these days! But I don't expect to be tossing my iPhone across the room anytime soon

I'm an adult and always think my phone is a phone and never treat it as a "novelty" item.

It was always just a phone.

Long live my Verizon iPhone 4.

Although I might need to upgrade it to the 5S/6 as the home button is kinda wanky.

If I feel that the environment is safe enough to take my phone out of the case, I'll do it but still treat it like it's as sensitive as 0.5 pencil lead.

If it's in my case (Belkin grip candy sheer), I'll through it around as if I have had it for a while.

I actually like my iPhone 5 a lot more than I thought I would. I think the case I got makes me like it even more, as materialistic as that might sound.

I do a lot of photography, so the panoramic is really nice to have. And I use my phone for business a lot of the time, so the bigger screen is really nice too. And as weird as it might sound, my 4S feels heavy and bulky now. (I don't buy into the whole light/thin thing, usually I think bulky and heavy is better since it feels more high quality in a way, butI really like the design of the 5.)
I don't think I will upgrade for a long while now, I can't imagine them making it much better than this.
