    I listed me 5 on eBay.....auction ends on Saturday and I set a 2 day "handling period."

    I will be setting an alarm for the early morning 5s order....but how quick will they be shipped?? When would we expect to get them if bought off the Apple site....

    Yes. For a day or two. Maybe longer depending on if they sell out quickly enough.

    Just remember, life existed before smartphones. You will survive.

    Now I see why companies charge restocking fees. Buying an iPod knowing you are going to return it is just wrong. Now when you return it, it will be resold as a refurbished piece. Talk about abusing the system.

    I always sell me previous iPhones on eBay as well. However, I always wait until I have the new iPhone in my hands before selling the old one.

    I don't know how long it will take if you order one online. The last time I ordered online was my iPhone 4 back June 15, 2010. In the email I got from AT&T it said that they were expecting them to be delivered on June 24th. So I would say you are going to be phoneless for a while. My advice, if you don't have any bids on that auction is to cancel it and relist it AFTER you have the new iPhone in your hands.

    If you decide or can't cancel the auction once your iPhone sells then I would recommend you stop using it immediately. Because technically it is no longer your phone and if something happens to that phone before you ship it, your going to be screwed.

    Thanks about the "survival reminder" lol. I know I will live through it, some how ;), but I was just curios.

    ----------

    Laughed so loud at this I think I woke up my wife!

    ----------

    I just want to make it clear to all, the title is "will I be phoneless" not "will I survive," "will I still have the will to live" or "is my life worth living, if I do not have a phone for a day"

    Lol

    Edit: Ignore this. Sore subject for me that I should not have gotten involved in to begin with. My apologies.

    I agree. It's one thing to get the iPod, not like it and return it but to borrow it knowing youre returning it is not right as it ruins it for everyone else. Just like you...SIGH
