I'm still debating whether to go for the IP5 or make the change to the S3. My concerns about switching are as follows and I would appreciate any advice or help you can offer. 1. If I buy the phone SIM free (probably online), what is the warranty likely to be like? If I need to send the phone away for example, will I be left without a phone for however long it takes? This would be a serious downside in comparison to just going along to an Apple store. 2. I use multiple calendars in iCal and never use any cloud based storage, this is by choice, no iCloud or Google for me. Is it possible to sync my multiple calendars and contacts directly from my iMac to the S3 via USB cable? 3. What about syncing music from iTunes including playlists? Drag and drop is too long winded for a large library with lots of playlists. All my music is ripped from owned CDs, no downloads and once again, I don't wish to store my collection in the cloud. I have read about Kries and another possibility but there seem to be alot of problems when using a Mac. I'm looking for a stable connection that actually works without the need to spend hours working out why it doesn't. 4. Lastly, emails without using Gmail, is this possible? I have a Gmail account but don't use it as the POP version doesn't play nicely with all my devices whereas all my other accounts do. No, I don't want IMAP as I don't want all my mail the same across all devices and do want everything stored locally on my iMac for easy accessibility when offline. 5. I really like the curvy design of the S3 and the plastic doesn't bother me but I do wonder about the ease in which it scratches in comparison to say the metal back of the IP5. I realise nobody can answer this for certain until the IP5 is released later this week but would appreciate any opinions. I am seriously considering the S3 so thanks for reading the long post and for any helpful replies.
