    Someone else can pre-order my White VZW 64GB
    Yes because of all those times when you are talking on the phone and need to surf the internet at the same time while driving in your car.....

    Idk, I can count on 0 fingers how much I've used that capability, so for me, it's not a deal breaker.

    One thing I've learned about this online ordering is that your odds are better getting the 64GB as the less memory models get snapped up first.

    Normally I go white given an option of white and black, but with iPhone 5 I think it's black all the way.

    So assuming I stay awake, I'll order a 64GB Black model.
    WOW!!! Crackberry Kevin preordering an iPhone 5!?! I know I'm at work and all but I know I'm not dreaming and hell hasn't froze over lol


    Lol just teasing you Kevin.

    Since I'm a bit bored waiting for launch time.. just wanted to ask the thread if anyone else is like me..

    I'm 41.. beautiful wife, 2 great kids.. law degree, happy fulfilling life. No complaints.

    However, these days pretty much nothing gets me excited. I've seen most of the world, done the adrenaline sports, owned very nice things, etc, etc, etc. (First world problem.)

    However, the one thing that does get me excited like kids on Christmas morning is the annual pilgrimage to the alter of Apple (aka- iPhone keynotes). On the first day iPhone 1 came out a friend showed it to me and I was blown away. Day 2 and I was at the Apple store buying one. When 3G came out and the App Store debuted, I was in line at 4:30 AM on Day 1. For the iPhone 4 I grabbed it Day 2.

    For some reason the iPhone brings out my inner child. My wife and friends get quite a few laughs out of it. I think I've converted no less than 25 people to the device. I'm sure there are various reasons but the iPhone has always excited me like no other material thing in the world. Maybe it's because I use it so much. Maybe it's because I can be on vacation, fully in touch with work and net while on the beach and then turn around and film my kids playing in the waves.

    Alas, I have babbled. Just wondering if anyone else counts the iPhone as one of the only things they get excited over these days.

    PS- I'm a long time lurker but just signed up this week. Keep up the great work Rene and crew!
    Alas I also share your age and......addiction as it were. Only I forgot to get my law degree somewhere along the way (although for the past 20 years I have been aiding lawyers in making a living since I'm a cop).

    I honestly can't wait! I'll be ordering two white/silver 16 GB versions on Verizon.

    This may have already been asked. I'm doing an alternate upgrade so that I could keep my unlimited plan. Does the phone have to be actived on the line it's intended for, or can I just pop in my sim and be off?

    I am upgrading from an iPhone 4 with 16 gb. I know that the camera on the iPhone 5 is much nicer than the 4. Will I need a 32 gb iPhone because of the larger size of pictures and videos? I currently have 8 gb free on my iPhone 4.
    My girlfriend is just now running out of space on her 16gb 4S and I don't think she has ever deleted a photo or video in the year that she's had hers. Understandably, the videos take up quite a bit of space as they are full 1080p HD quality.

    I take quite a few photos and some videos (well, to me at least...my quick estimation is about 1,000 photos and videos cumulatively over this last 11 months) but I just make sure to offload many of those to cloud storage every month or so. It just seems unnecessary to keep every version of every photo I've ever taken on the phone itself when I rarely ever need to show anyone every single photo all at once.

    The Dropbox app makes uploading extremely easy by automatically shooting all of your photos/videos to your specific folder on the cloud whenever you open the app. They also throw in up to I think 3gb extra storage for free just by activating this feature on the app. Overall, it's a really nice feature and between iCloud, Drive, Dropbox, etc... and the apps associated with those services there really isn't any reason why I should EVER run out of space on my 4S...that is until I sell it after I buy a 5

    So I got really mad for a second that I couldn't do data while on a call on Verizon, and then I remembered: it's really not that big of a deal for me. And now I"m happy again.

    I feel your pain. When my girl found out I was dropping $750 on this bad boy, she went off lol. Even went to my mom. Anyway, they simmered down after about 2 weeks of trying to talk me out of it.
    If you like I can call the FBI and have you join the Federal Witness Relocation Program....

    Considering that it's a totally different type of SIM and VZW requires activation for the CDMA part of the phone, it won't be as simple as just dropping a SIM in the new phone.

    My last iPhone purchase was the iPhone 4 and after trying unsuccessfully to pre-order on Apple I was successful through AT&T website. The iPhone 4 arrived the Thursday before launch day (Friday). I was overjoyed. I hope that happens this time as well.

    Edit: Upgrading from 16GB iPhone 4 to 32GB iPhone 5. I've owned the original iPhone, iPhone 3G and iPhone 4

    I was going to preorder but I think I want to actual see it before I commit. I love my iPhone 4 but my eyes are getting old and it is so hard to read text in some apps that don't allow zooming so I want to be sure that the bigger screen make it easier to read.

    If it is easier than I am getting a 64gb in black on AT&T!!!!! And an Otterbox Defender to protect it.

    You have to complete the upgrade on line that has it if you try a alternate you lose unlimited once upgrade is completed then just switch the phone to your line to keep your unlimited
