    So how did you do voice and data together? Everything I've read says that you can't on Verizon.

    Exactly... there's not even a "flapped" area on my envelope for the SIM tool. Ugh!!

    I'm not saying that they should flip over everything, I'm just saying, that there could be some new innovative things concidering the iOS design or the composition of thinks u know?

    You are right, it is totally working and everything. Thinking of younger users and those who want to have fun with there funs and not just a working phone...the first think comming to my mind is the "live Wallpapers" of android for eg. not a big thing, but it's fun:)

    Since activating my iPhone 5 yesterday, I have had no problems with it at all. App downloads are much faster with iOS 6. An app that took 10 minutes to download now takes seconds.
    The new, larger display lets me notice which apps haven't yet been updated to take full advantage of the new display size. The iPhone forums app, for example, has black bars at the top and bottom or sides, depending on how you hold the phone.
    Here is a screenshot to illustrate the issue.

    Well, first let me say I finally got my iPhone5 on Friday (10/5/12). It was worth the wait! Aside from the bigger screen, the slimmer design and noticing the faster speed when on LTE, the one thing I have been absolutely blown away by is the iPhone's ability to handle wi-fi and the speed when connected to wi-fi. I always skip a generation on my phones, so I had the iPhone4 and skipped the 4s. My 4 when connected to wi-fi could only handle roughly 21 mbps download speed and 4.2 mbps upload speed. One of the first things I did after getting home and connecting to itunes and syncing my phone was running a speed test while connected to wi-fi. I didn't believe the results I saw, 40.92 Mbps!!!!! So I ran another, 39 Mbps!! And then a third, 40.6 Mbps. :D Speed Speed Speed is what I want when dealing with my computers and cell phones, I pay for a fast internet service but that service is useless if your computer and/or cell phone can't handle the speed, well this phone CAN!!!! THIS PHONE IS A MUST HAVE, if you are an "Apple" person and have not had the chance to get your hands on one, be patient, it is well worth the wait. GREAT JOB APPLE!

    I noticed this on the plastic screen smudge protector but when I removed that the screen was pristine. That plastic is not meant to be there during use.

    I have a tracking number for mine, but can't track it, soooooo annoying. Suppose to arrive on or before 12th. Wish UPS would get their act together a tracking number should mean it can be tracked !!
