    After reading everyone's reviews on their iPhone 5, I am more and more surprised that people don't like how light and thin It is. I remember using one of those Nokia brick type phones, and wishing for something like this. It's incredible how thin it really is.
    So far, no problems at all. Wifi is working exactly the same as my 4S. Same signal, except LTE.
    The only differences are the charger and the screen size. And it's pretty fast with switching apps as well.
    Overall, I love it. And I really am confused on why so many do not.

    Know what? Me too! I'm almost a week into owning my first, an iPhone 5, and I'm loving it. No issues at all, it even looked perfect out of the box. And Verizon LTE has been great. Very happy so far :)

    I got mine yesterday and am pretty happy so far (although half way through syncing it with iTunes my laptop had an epic crash, will need to try again tonight to work out what the hell that was all about).

    I am slightly mystified as to why some people have got really excited about it though. I came from a 4s and haven't noticed a huge increase in speed (how fast can web browsing or using apps get!). The screen seems fine, but again not hugely different and I don't have a strong opinion about the increase in size. I don't get LTE on my network so that is one improvement I unfortunately don't benefit from so perhaps that is the "big deal".

    All in all it has some nice tweaks from the 4s but as I said, nothing that gets me very excited.

    I've had a few iPhones, but I definitely love this one the best. It came unscathed out of the box and hasn't given me any serious issues since I got it. It was very worth it to upgrade.

    That is exactly why I didn't feel the need to upgrade.

    Despite the physical changes, it isn't THAT much different feeling than a 4S. The browsing speeds are similar (on wifi, which is what I'm on most of the time), the apps open just a millisecond slower on the 4S, camera takes pics a millisecond slower. It's your typical upgrade, people are just BLOWN AWAY because it's light and thin and redesigned (slightly).

    This is why upgrading every 2 years is the best. If you get the phone every year, you dont notice that much of an improvement. If you get a new iPhone every 2 years, you are WOWed.

    Same here. I did have a scuff issue with my first one, but I had it replaced with a second, flawless iPhone 5, and I've been totally happy since.

    I love mine more now that its starting to get the normal wear and tear on it. Makes me feel a lot less guilty once its scratched up.

    I used to love my AT&T iphone 5 16gb and now love my iphone 5 32gb even more especially after I sold my 6 week old 16gb for $800 on the bay and bought my 32gb still sealed in the box for $485 ;-). Must be the deal of the century :)

    I have had a couple iPhone before I had gotten the 5 most recently. This is the best phone I have ever had in my life. Also had a Blackberry and Android phone, they both are terrible. I couldnt imagine ever leaving Apples combination of style, feel, and software.

    Some guy listed it on ebay and I bought it within a few seconds after the auction was listed. To be honest with you, I thought it was a scam since the guy never sold on ebay before and only had 6 feedback but I said what the hell. I'll give it a shot and worst case I'll get my money back through ebay if its a scam. I received the phone in the mail yesterday and it was still sealed and been using it since and it's all perfect :)

    Wow, that's very lucky. You should play the lottery before this kind of luck runs out ;)

    Like mine too, except for the loose battery, yellowish screen, Invalid SIM error, other than that it is nice.

    You had better hope this phone is not stolen. Something is very fishy here.

    Well I think it's fine, he got the phone for $299, charged $450 so that's about a $150 profit then goes back to using his old phone.

    No picture of the actual phone yet the plastic is opened? Strange... Paypal has great protection though.

    I'm amazed as well about how many people complain about anything Apple related on this site. I think its a general public perception that Apple is down so lets attack anything they make or do, no matter how good it is. I've heard lots of noise about imagined problems while remarkably little noise of competitors problems.

    Well mine was $199 on AT&T. Of course mines under contract ugh.

    But I wouldn't be with anyone else for the next 2 years.
