    I for some reason, Feel if I watch an unboxing of the iphone, especially the same color one I got, It will make the feeling of opening mine tomorrow not as good and basically like I already did it. If I am going too far with this thread fine but if you agree let me know.

    ----------

    guess so

    Nope.

    Im not getting the 5 tomorrow but will be using these types of videos to make my decision to purchase or not.

    That and playing with a demo working model.

    Go to bed now and when you wake up it will be X-Mas morning! Watching someone else unbox their iPhone 5 will not do it for me!

    That will play a big role for me as well. Along with a nice serving of reviews.

    after 4 or 5 phones how can anyone get excited over it? it is like sex with the same person after 25 years. feels good but you know what is going to happen and what everything looks and feels like.

    Easy. It's something new... How are you not excited? If I wasn't excited I'd probably not buy a 200-400 dollar device.

    I think watching them is a bit silly. I would not be avoiding it because it would spoil "my" surprise. Just silly.

    Glad others get something out of it.

    I hope the iPhone 5 is everything you hoped it to be. We both will have our phones tomorrow!

    No long now.

    I was a lot more excited until I signed the papers on a new Porsche Cayenne S today. It has kinda eclipsed the 5.

    but it is not new. when I bought my first iphone first mini first ipad they were new. but each time less excitement and each os upgrade even less so. I mean if the phone was really different yes. but it is just a a typical upgrade and will do nothing new.

    I'm watching them like porn.

    I haven't upgraded to ios 6, I've never seen siri in action--I'll have plenty of other surprises to keep me satisfied. But, for now, I want to know, in great detail, what my phone is going to look like.

    I completely agree.

    ----------

    I've used iOS 6 and so have ruined that surprised, had plenty of Siri action. Only surprises left are the physical phone, speed and LTE.
