I've had several problems since I got the iPhone 5 (Verizon) on Friday.
The battery didn't last through the day today on 4G LTE. Siri works but freezes up a lot. Tonight, texts will just hang and say sending for 1-2 minutes. Some texts will not go through and say message send failure immediately and I try to resend them 2 or 3 times and they might eventually go OR it tells me they didn't go but they really did since a friend will respond to it.

Web pages don't load and the wheel just spins at times and nothing happens. I tried watching a YouTube video earlier and it threw and error and wouldn't load so I just gave up and borrowed my friend's iPhone 4 to watch it. I'm about ready to just go back to my iPhone 4 and forget it.

Hope you figure it out- going from 4 to the 5 must be nice but it sucks to have problems off the bat. I would say not to give up on it- I happen to use Siri a lot - so I believe the first reply is correct might be some network problems with the phone.

Yeah I'm hoping things improve with the phone, but at least I have 14 days to return it if necessary. I like the speed of 4G, but if the phone can even get through a day with it turned on, then 3G is good enough for me.

Sounds like verizon problems. I don't have any of those problems on AT&T LTE in my area. My battery easily lasts me the whole day. although our uses vary I'm sure.
