    Like when the iPhone 4 had the antenna problem, they fixed it and they eventually didnt do that when verizon got their iPhones released.

    Will the iPhone 5 problems eventually be fixed the same way?

    What problems are you referring to? I no longer use an iPhone but as far as I know, barring the issue with Maps, the iPhone 5 is very solid.

    Or am I missing something?

    You're missing nothing... Other than lens flare and people discovering that metal scratches:confused:

    There's not really a problem with the iPhone 5, just quality control issues that they'll eventually resolve.

    The antenna of the iPhone was never "fixed". It was a non-issue that was blown out of proportion and forgotten. It was a great parlor trick however, putting it in the Vulcan death grip and watching the bars drop, but that's about it. Not an issue in the real world use of the phone. The new phone is just fine and doesn't need "fixing". I've got a black one and it's an excellent phone. Go out and buy yourself one and enjoy.

    I don't need mine to get any better. It's perfectly fine already. :)

    To the OP: Do you have one?

    I wasn't aware of antenna issues for one. But to answer your question, my guess is that it will improve with iOS 6.1

    I was having the same - Although I would lose signal and had to power cycle the phone to make it search for signal again!
    I took it into the Apple Store, and it was exchanged, just like that. Now its working better.

    Verizon released a software update today that fixed an issue wherein the phone would switch to LTE or use LTE even when you were on wifi.

    I gobbled up over 2GB just a couple days into my cycle. Luckily I have unlimited.

    Hopefully this helps with battery life too.
