    Speedy LTE allowed me to find out 2.82 seconds faster how shittily my fantasy football team is doing

    I'm also on the hunt for cases. I think I might switch gears this time and just use it naked (every 'permanent' case I've tried makes the display worse), but get a sleeve to protect it when it's not in use

    I was also thinking of a sleeve like those multi-color socks people were big on 2-4 years ago.

    What were those things called? Thinking about using it naked as well but would like a sleeve or something when I decide to put the phone in my totes etc. and not in pocket.

    heard about this earlier. and if report is true, it's not a mistake that will be resolved later, makes it tempting since performance of the phone seems to blow everyone else out of the water. ios6 sounds underwhelming tho

    actually seems i cant keep my crackberry unlimited data plan with the iphone and so gotta get a 2/4/whatever gb plan ... useless

    There are lots of people making slipcases on etsy. I definitely want a leather case for CBD type where, right now I'm looking at eyeglass cases.

    Keep in mind those Verizon IPhone 5's don't have that hardware to do AT&T LTE. They will only work in AT&T's slower GSM network. It would have been nice if the switch to LTE was used as an opportunity to pass some wireless network standards in the USA, but whatever.

    it works on AT&T's HPSA+ which isn't real LTE, is that different than what you're saying ?

    Some people who are long time users feel like iOS 6 was not a big leap over 5. To them it might feel a little "underwhelming." It's still a fine OS with the most refinement and best ecosystem on the market.

    If you are moving from a BB then it will be a night and day experience for you. A huge change and step into the world of a modern mobile OS.

    not really anything new, I have been running ios5 on the ipod touch 4th gen i have since i'm often enough in wifi areas (btw in paris there's a free wifi service for cable subscribers there i was using since i had a password to connect) and it doesn't really do much for me. of course when i jail broke it i could do things like add vlc on it and get an app to control vlc on my computer which is nice. if that were my primary phone i'd probably have thrown it out the window by now though, and if that is modern mobile OS then I'll stick to the stone ages or see if android is different ;)

    HPSA+ is "4G" in AT&T marketing only. It's a GSM network. Yes it's faster then the old HSPA they used, but it's not true LTE. This Verizon iPhone 5 won't do AT&T's new LTE network because it only has hardware for Verizon's LTE.

    I'm not sure why anyone would want to buy a Verizon phone just to run it on AT&t slower network. What's the upside here? Just buy the AT&T phone if you want to run on their network and get LTE too.
