    Just got home with mine, syncing apps, photos, music & all that good stuff from iTunes as I type. The weight (or lack thereof) of this phone...you have to hold it/feel it to believe it. I hope all those anxiously awaiting delivery or their chance to get one in a store get to do so very soon!

    finally, got my hands on the new phone. Thanks UPS for the early delivery. After playing for a while, I set it to restore from iCloud backup which is going to take an hour

    First impression, light - real light. Fast - real fast. It just looks awesome...

    Time to head down to the Apple store for additional lightning-usb cable for the car...

    Looking at the iFixit teardown, I don't think there's any room for anything to rattle. The vibration motor's supposed to be oldschool though, perhaps it's that? Other than that, hit the Apple store and get it replaced.

    I received mine @ 10:40am EST. I pre-ordered the Verizon 16GB White. I installed with iCloud and was up and running in about 15 minutes. Very satisfied so far.
