    are you being sarcastic or making fun of me? :plain:

    I find that it helps me a lot when planning anything, I can look at the family calendar and see if anything is planned for the month with just one glance.

    Are you putting a case on your phone?

    I have never used a case since my first phone, Samsung E900, it adds bulk and screams PLEB. (without a case I am still a pleb but at least its not super obvious) lol jkjk

    That's what I want. Are you not able to do this with outlook?

    I was reading about the methods to sync your information a while back and haven't bother to read anything recently, has anything changed or did I miss something?

    Was making fun of myself. I'm lucky to have one calendar going for everything. Let alone color coordinated ones for the different aspects of my life. :happy:


    Not sure about a case. I am considering going without a case this time. What's holding me back is I like the extra grippy feel that a case can provide.

    If you are on Exchange, it syncs automatically.

    Those of you on Google Calendar, can do the same. That's what I use.

    CalTex - How is the hype machine app? Love the site but wondering if it's worth it to have on the phone.

    So, is anyone going to pick up accessories for their iPhone 5? Sleeve? Screen protector? etc etc.

    Interested to see what new ones come out as everything currently will not fit.

    I am considering one just to ease my mind.

    As long as you are smart and don't put the phone in the same pocket as your keys, you really don't need one of those screen protectors. I have never used one and my iPhone 4's screen is still in perfect condition. All they end up doing is making the screen less sensitive to your touch (TWSS).

    Okay that is what I am doing, but the colors for my calendar are always lost. IIRC, you can sync outlook with iCal (assuming you have a mac/apple os) and activate iCal on the iPhone and the categories will be the same. This was too much work for me.



    It is not great for browsing but it works for listening to your tracks, that is why I bought it.


    Negative. The only time I consider putting a case on my phone is when I am at the ranch.

    (break)

    Has anyone reapplied an Oleophobic (Oil Resistant) coating on their phone? It wears off after a while IMO and I don't like the smudges.

    Oh that reminds me, I once took this girl out to eat and she was eating fried chicken with her hands and texting after a casual napkin wipe. Ugh, it was disgusting. :crazy:

    so your screen doesn't even have a light scratch? :wow:

    I am careful but I have a few light scratches on my phone. Nothing visible once the screen turns on.

    Glass generally does not scratch. It will shatter however under the right conditions. The main reason I use a screen film is to protect from breakage and make the phone easier to hold on to.

    Depending on the quality of the hard anodizing I wonder if a case is necessary for the 5 for everyday environments.

    If there are any, I don't notice them. Screen still looks great.

    Will that film actually protect against an impact great enough to shatter the glass? I have seen the promo videos for products like that, but never really bought the marketing.
