    Really don't know if I want to upgrade now or wait it out... from everything I'm reading, it seems like the factory sealed phones are still as bad out of the box as they were from day 1. Do I spend my time and money going through iPhone after iPhone or should I wait it out until at least Christmas or the next iPhone release?

    I'm asking this because I don't want to deal with absolute ******* quality phones (which shouldn't even happen with a company like Apple) and I could probably save myself a lot of hassle going with a GSIII.

    I'm trying to make the conversion to iPhone but I really don't know if this is the time to do it with all these out of the box problems.

    Opinions? Wait it out or go for it?

    If you've waited this long, wait another week or so. There's rumored to be the LG Nexus 4, as well as other manufacturers releasing their own Nexus devices (fingers-crossed on that one).

    What problems? *Definitely different on the way I look at all these things or what's happening :p*

    It's best to find out for yourself than read all these e-whingers (legit or not).

    At worst, if you will be among the small percentage who will get the bad one, you can return it.

    iP5 is all worth it!

    You are waiting because you have read bad things?? When has a single positive thing ever been said on this forum? I have 2 iPhone 5s and they are both perfect.

    People here like to complain about nothing.

    THIS.

    Mine is perfect as with more than 90% who bought their iP5s.

    If I believe all the OCDs / whiners in the web / anything I read in the internet, I am going to be rich but will miss out the real fun, lol.

    My iPhone 5 works great! Forums are like TV.Most things you watch are negative, because it draws the most attention. Reality shows about happy families are boring. Same with macrumors and other phone forums, you'll hear more complaints on here than the positive. You get thirty days to try it for free, don't like it? Return it, but I'd highly suggest you try it for yourself first

    I'd wait until 2 things happen:

    1) iPhone can be bought at the carrier store without having to preorder, incase yours is defective and needs an exchange.

    2) Windows phone 8 launch at the end of October. There seems to be a lot of new phones coming out plus phones that can do voice and data at the same time. That can't be done with iphone 5 and most US carriers.
