1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    Ordered the monoprice iPhone 5 bumper. Was something like $6 after shipping (I think there's a 10% coupon out there if you want to save 40 cents).

    Just arrived, and seems pretty good. Definitely makes the phone easier to hold on to. Material is more of a hard plastic than a rubber. I wouldn't mind if it fit slightly tighter. There's less tactile feedback when pressing the power button on top of the phone. There's a terrible monoprice logo on the side; hopefully will come off without much trouble. I hear the cutout for the lightning connector needs to be trimmed slightly; don't think that will be a big deal. Provides a little bit of extra "grip" when you put your phone on a table. Not too much thicker than the phone itself - I've seen complaints that some bumpers add a lot of thickness, but this one seems just right to me. Hopefully the added grip will make it less likely that the phone will slide out of my pocket.

    For 6 bucks, good deal.

    Ummm.. so I got a free iPhone 5..

    I had pre-ordered a white iPhone from AT&T, cancelled it, and bought my black one at an apple store. Well, I'm flying back home today and when I land, I get an email saying that I have a package waiting for me..

    I'm really confused at that point because I didn't order anything, nor was I expecting anything from friends/family. So I get the package and open it up and lo and behold, there's the iphone 5 I had preordered!

    Not sure what I want to do with it at this point. It has a sticker on the side of the box with my name and phone number on it so I don't know if it's 'locked' into my number.

    I placed 3 orders with AT&T that were mysteriously auto-cancelled after a few minutes before I went to Apple's website. Maybe I will get 3 free phones!

    So what's the general consensus on this phone, is it worth it? I am thinking of finally upgrading from my 5 year old flip phone.

    Some good info in this thread, guys. Thanks.

    Any thoughts on this Minisuit case?

    Or this Fotodiox one that's supposed to prevent the purple haze?

    Seriously? I can't believe they're doing a consumer report into something that's been known about ever since photography was first invented.
