    Yes, the 5 has its usual bugs and has its antenna issues. ... Unlike the iPhone 5, the iPhone 4 and 4S are jailbreakable.

    No regrets at all. I don't have any antenna issues or bugs at all. LTE rocks!

    No had a jailbroken 4s, the 5 is so much better in terms of speed, LTE and screen size. The only thin I miss is MyWi, which would really be nice given the LTE capability.

    I upgraded from the 4s to the 5 and have no regrets whatsoever.

    I don't jailbreak anymore as i prefer stock.

    After getting used to the size and weight which took a week'ish when i hold the 4s if feels stubby and weighty !

    I just have to be more careful with the 5 compared to the previous generations because it's much more susceptible to scratches and dings. Especially the black model. I refuse to use a case.

    No regrets whatsoever. I loved my iPhone 4 but the 5 is so much better in every way. Better battery, lighter, faster, better screen.

    I never jailbroke the 4 so this isn't an issue. My 5 is flawless, no scratches, no dings and works perfectly; so all in all a happy customer.

    I have a screen protector and a clear case on it as the nature of my job means I can't baby the phone. When I sold the 4 it was perfect in every way and the 5 will have the same treatment so when I sell it in the future I can get top price for it.

    I feel the same way, if i can get MyWi that would make it perfect, but I can wait until the jailbreak comes out, It always does.

    Like they said on SNL ... To light and to thin. Ha. Because of the larger size, I am attempting to go naked. Big change from the Ballistic HC case on my 4. Having a tough time relearning how to type. My thumbs won't go to the outside well enough while still having a decent grip. 1st world problem. Will give it a few weeks but I may have to get a big *** case just so I can type. Or a big *** Andoid. Nah!

    Love the 64GB.

    I will be getting the 5 Next week sometime but the 4S on JB is pretty damn good. It doesn't slow down with what I have loaded on (lots of tweaks) and hopefully if the 5 is jailbroken, there will be a LOT of cool tweaks that would kick but on a bigger screen, like IntelliscreenX, BiteSMS, the list goes on.

    Default iPhone 4 to 5 Any Regrets?

    I love my IPhone 4. Never an issue. Has been a great device. Ordered 3 iPhone 5s and expecting Nov.14-20 but check status daily to tourture myself. I'm excited about iPhone 5 just a bit nervous with some of the postings. I want to have a similar experience I've come to expect since my 3GS. I've never been disappointed with any Apple device. Thanks for the feedback.

    Moved from a 4 to a 5 yesterday and the difference is incredible. Everything loads so much faster and the extra screen real-estate is wonderful.

    I have a couple of issues with my iPhone 5. The first is the screen height. I have to 'shuffle' the phone in my hand to reach the top when using it one handed and that makes me nervous. Also, I have some visual glitches now and then that I hear are related to the OS. I hope that will be fixed with the next update. Other than those two things I love my new phone.

    I upgraded from a JB iPhone 4 and I LOVE it! The speed is unreal, the battery life is so much better, the camera is so much better. It is truly what an iPhone experience is supposed to be like. On the iPhone 4 there were certain apps I didn't use a lot like Facebook, Safari and a few others that just sucked memory. So usually I had about 4 apps running in the background and the speed of the iPhone was good. Now I don't have to worry about that anymore and to me that is really what I want to be able to do. I want to be able to open something do what I'm doing and get out. Eventually if you open a bazillion things the device is going to slow down but having 8 or 12 apps in the system tray my iPhone 5 is still blazing fast.

    I do have annoyances since I came from a JB but that has to do with iOS and nothing to do with the iPhone 5 itself. Coming from BiteSMS answering iMessage is now a pain and the god awful album art on the lock screen I have never seen the point of that. These are the two biggest annoyances for me but if you ask me would I put up with it for the hardware well I have it so I guess that answers the question

    None except for the lousy antenna. Wifi is not as strong and the cell antenna is much weaker than on my 4. I'm consistently at No Service at home when I used to at least get two bars consistently. I know many are hoping a software patch will fix this but that didn't fix the 4's antenna problems so I'm not getting my hopes up.

    It's possible he's referring to the iOS 6 glitch with a particular cell company that uses cellular data even when connected to wifi.
