I have a 5 now. I thought about purchasing a 5c unlocked to play around with until my 5s arrives. then i'll return the 5c within the 30 day period. I know it sounds a bit rude and wrong. i don't want to sound entitled or whatnot but im tired of waiting for the 5s Nov1 shipdate? i feel like apple dropped the ball on us giving the same shipping date to the people who ordered it just now. that's just wrong. i think apple should provide "loaner iphones" in these backordered cases. so in that regards, i'll consider the 5c purchase to be refunded as a loaner. it's like when you get your vehicle serviced, they provide you a loaner to hold you off. what do you guys think?
