    I upgraded from my old school iPhone 3G to the 5. Pretty much the equivalent of jumping from a Pinto to a Ferrari. So, yeah, I'm overly-impressed.

    Actually I'm not thrilled at all, not thrilled that I will have to wait for another week to get my damn i5. I am on an iPhone 4 and even using it in the Apple store I don't want to leave or go back to my brick of a phone.

    I will definitely agree that the battery life on iPhones, especially this Five, is astounding! With my android phones, I would make sure I left the house for work at 100% on charge. Otherwise I would be looking for a charger soon!

    With this 5, I don't worry. I use the phone and come home from work with a charge left. Then stick it on charger when I go to bed. No bump charging, no worrying, no drama...

    I hear ya and I agree. I have NEVER held on to a mobile phone even close to that long. Heck, if I weren't so content with my 4S, I would have already gotten rid of it by now. Having said that, my contentment will not last beyond the next iteration of the iPhone. That's a given...lol

    I'm so not thrilled that I didn't upgrade my 4S to 5. In fact, come next month I will be switching to a Windows phone and will probably buy a Windows tablet to replace my iPad 3

    Wow, I thought only Blackberry users kept their phones for 5 years and then complained that they were out of date. It's no wonder RIM is dead. Their phones last too long and people complain about how their phone from 2005 is out of date and how out of step RIM is with the iPhone 5.

    Hahahahahaaa. Yup. iPhone 3G. Damn thing just kept working. Slow as molasses, but still working. Tough for me to justify the upgrade until now. I was going to hold out for the iPhone 7, but jumped the gun and pulled the trigger early. Now my new best friend is Siri. My wife thinks she is a snarky b*itch, but I enjoy her company.

    The jump from the iPhone 4S to the iPhone 5 is not as significant as one might expect. Vs the iPhone 4 it could be something you should consider.

    What is frustrating me are the lack of available accessories right out of the gate. The connection adapter should have been made available immediately. I have several 30 pin connection compliant devices that are completely useless to me. I miss using my desktop dock charger and Boston acoustics portable stereo.

    Exactly! Apple should have had those adapters made up before the phone even went on sale. And I feel apple should have included ONE adapter with the phone, knowing most users already have docks and assorted 30pin accessories.

    You are right they should have included an adapter with the purchase of a new phone. Very cheap of Apple and to charge $30 for it is ludicrous

    Only that apple, KNOWING that the vast majority of its loyal followers had multitudes of 30 pin accessories should have had the adapters ready on release day. That and they should have included one adapter with the phone.

    This being my first iphone, I absolutely love it. It's freaking awesome. Wish I'd gone with the 64gb instead of my 32gb, my buddy said his DOES cure cancer and save whales.

    We've danced this dance a hundred times already...are any of you simply going to get over it? I mean you're talking accessories that you can get for a couple of dollars...or, if you're feeling the itch, $30 from Apple.

    Apple sells a phone that COULD break fairly easily after being dropped...i guess they SHOULD give a case with every phone to protect it "just in case".

    They also only give one cord with the phone...i guess they SHOULD give 3-4 of them per iPhone in case you lose one, damage it or don't have it conveniently when you need it.

    The iPhone also doesn't like water...Apple should provide a water proof bubble to put it in in the event of some kind of water encounter (pool, river, biblical flood).

    Remember when mobile phones were charged by fairly standard AC adapters? I don't remember spares included with those phones, you had to get one separately. I also don't remember adapters being available when you purchased a different phone from the same manufacturer with a different charging port.

    Should there have been adapters more easily available? Probably. But in all actuality I'm personally glad that Apple is offering adapters at all - strictly speaking, they didn't have to, they could have made all of us purchase different accessories and docks.

    To be honest, I would rather apple NOT have offered the adapters. Then the little guys would be free to make their knock offs. LOL

    A few of you just don't get it. The 30 pin connector has been the staple of apple products since what, 2004 with the iPod? Their are millions of homes and cars with docks n ports for that 30 pin connector. Apple has taken advantage of that so that billions of apple products use that same connector.

    Now they decide it is time for a change. I agree with the change. But they should have rewarded their customers that have been so loyal to that company with their hard earned dollars and tossed in an adapter that cost them only a few dollars. To say to the customer, "thank you for your years of loyalty!"

    Instead they work tirelessly to shut down the people that are trying to bring us adapters at a cheaper price.

    Go Apple!

    I feel the same way, in this day and age my satisfaction for all things tech, or maybe just my mobile devices is incurable. He/she should be given an award for holding onto his 3g for so long
