    My wifi is acting up, im not able to send mms over wifi and while my macbook speeds away on my wifi my i5 just putts along. When I switch it to LTE though it jams out.
    Same. Especially bad when downloading apps and large files like podcasts. LTE works fine though.

    Please feel free to call me on it if I'm nitpicking. Has anyone noticed that the screen/display has a slightly yellowish hue to it?

    White seems to be more of an off-white color. I'm comparing side-by-side with my iPhone4 and every menu/color seems to be slightly yellowish. Overall, the colors do not seem as crisp as the Retina Display on my iP4.
    I had that on two 4S models, exchanged them each time and lucked out on the third one.

    Fantastic thread... the screen yellow tint issue was around since iphone 4... different manufacturer or different wafer the screens of ip4 and 4s range from blueish white to down right beige/yellow.

    Ah, one issue I have seen now, that I can't fully attribute to Apple, iOS, iTunes or iP5, is that not all my songs play. The reason why I can't say it's the fault of anyone is because I mass transferring my 2,700 songs into iTunes at one time. That can cause issues with the file itself.

    So this may be to my not knowing since i'm a new iphone user but when i turn on my wi-fi and connect here at the house its stays on for a little while but after the phone has been asleep for a bit and i turn it back on it has turned the wi-fi off and is back on LTE. Is there a switch or something i have to do to keep the wi-fi on when i'm at home??
    That's how iOS works. I personally hate it but unless you jailbreak, there's nothing you can do. If you do jailbreak (hopefully we can soon), there's a utility called Insomnia (I think that's what it's called) that will allow you to have persistent wifi.
    Sorry to differ, but my Wi-Fi does stay on when I'm at home, no matter how long the device's been to sleep. It has always been like that, as far as I can remember...

    I am new to the iphone as well and my wifi seemed to keep shutting off like when I would leave the house and then come back and just while in the living room, but my "ask to join" wasn't turned to on. I turned it on and it reconnects automatically when I come back home and is working fine. My problem was just me not being familiar with an iphone. Maybe this can help you too.
    +1.

    If not then its your WiFi that isn't strong enough...

    Having issues with 3G basically coming to a screeching halt after awhile until I reboot the phones, then it's zipping along again. Not sure what exactly is causing that but CS claims it's because the network is still "overwhelmed with activations" If this doesn't go away in a few days then we have a problem...

    - I get 'USB failed' errors when plugging the phone in to my laptop. The new connector is meant to be usable either way round, but I'm finding I can only connect to my laptop/iTunes if it's one specific way. Not a biggie, but slightly annoying.

    - Typing - Not sure if this is a 'bug' of some kind, or just where the screen has changed slightly & I'm getting used to the keys being minutely out of place - but I'm fining the keys not particularly sensitive - especially the space bar. Most things I type come out in one massive sentence, even when I'm 100% sure I've pressed he spacebar.

    - & the big one for me - the wifi not working. After getting home yesterday it worked ok except once where I just reset the network settings & that resolved the issue. But now, I cannot send/receive ANY data over wifi. The phone is connect to my home network (as are my iPad & laptop & they're working fine), but it just won't send/receive anything. Have stuck in Airplane Mode - nothing. Let the battery die & restart it - nothing. Reset the Network Settings - nothing. Have now resorted to arranging a call with Apple Support tomorrow evening. Slightly annoying when this is the key thing I need to work. Hoping Apple can offer a resolution as it's a 35 mile trip to my nearest Apple store if it needs to be replaced.

    Like others, Wi-fi is an issue. With iP5, my wifi is brutally slow. On the same network and location, an old iPod touch is much faster on wifi. We are also seeing wifi impacts on an iPhone 4 that we upgraded to iOS6. I am guessing this is an iOS6 issue. iPad1 with iOS5 is also fine on wifi.

    Lots of posts across the "interwebs" with similar issues.

    My ip5 has been on an off LTE since the beginning... it hasn't been consistently on LTE. Also, it sometimes goes to "no service" for a few minutes....

    Maybe sim card problem?
    I am having the same issue here in south Florida. I will drop from LTE to 4G then no data and even suddenly to no bars for no reason! It will happen while I am sitting in the same spot also. 5 bars with LTE to no bars no data for a few seconds and then back up again.

    Try going into your settings in Airplane mode on and then off. That is quicker and will do the same thing.

    --UPDATE: A friend is sitting within 10 feet of me with a 4s (also on AT&T like me) and they have 5 signal bar strength whereas I have 2 at the moment. Something fishy is going on!

    I find it much more difficult to operate one-handed with a thumb. When it's in the right position to double up (double down) and reach the bottom it's impossible to also reach the top. I have average-sized hands, so I didn't think this would be an issue. I'm also a guitar player, so my thumb is probably more flexible than a lot of people.

    my only complaint about the new iPhone five is that when the apps are letterboxed the keyboard is higher than where i expect the keyboard to be and I have a hard time hitting the right keys

    The keyboard experience for me has been horrendous. Almost unusable (relative to what I'm used to on iOS, even Android and WP). I sincerely hope it can be fixed with a simple software update...

    I have had some flucutation in signal as well. 3G to LTE and signal strength. I have compared to 3 others and there are all diff in flucutation. Anyone else see this.

    Scratch phone for me, my first phone had an inch long scratch on the back and 2 dents in the bezel. Went to Apple and they happened to have another white 32 gb Sprint iPhone 5, got to my car and my gf noticed a dent on the back cover and a small scratch on the bezel (in the excitement of them having a replacement I hadn't looked closely). The manager said they didn't have any phones left to exchange but she'd would call me Wednesday to set up an exchange if they have new stock. Not good luck for my first iPhone ever.

    In addition to this, I've noticed that since iOS 6 (on both 4S & 5), if I restart the phone, when it turns back on it's always in call forward mode.

    From the responses & other forums, it seems my above issues are iOS related. I have a call with Apple Support this evening anyway to log the issues & see if there's anything that can be done to resolve the intermittent wifi issue (which is now corrected itself randomly).

    My camera flash acted up once. It would just barely flash...not enough to light up the pic. Turned the phone off and back on and haven't had a problem again...yet.
