I'd prefer keeping my iP5 out of a case. The device is so thin and light, I have trouble picking it up off a flat surface. Without the case on, I've noticed the device spin around in my pocket.

I appreciate all the comments. The deed is done. I slowed down enough today to go to the AT&T store and got the iPhone 5 along with the LifeProof Fre.

LTE hit my city this week and that was the icing on the cake.

Thank you all for the advice.

My iPhone 5 in white will be here tomorrow. My HTC one x crapped out yesterday screen wouldn't come on at all. ATT thinks my screen died out, being that I work for a contractor of ATT I was able to smooth talk a credit to offset the no upgrade, not to mention 3 lines since 2007 and Uverse for over a year helps. Got a white 16 gig shipped next day for $199 including tax and shipping, upgrade fee waived by crediting my wireless account :) lets just say the reps manager got a great email about her excellence this morning hehe. I'm excited to be back in the Apple family.

Cool. The white iPhone 5 is really nice. Is it too late to return the HTC One? If so, are you going to have HTC replace it and then just sell it privately?

Ya know I have not given that a lot of thought. I know my warranty was up about 20 days ago. Do you think HTC will replace it even though its out of warranty? If so heck yeah I would love to get a new one and keep it for a backup or sell it to pay for the iPhone. I may have to give them a call and see what they will do.

I'd be tempted to buy the One off you just so I'd have two of them and to tick Europa off. :D

The iPhone 5S probably won't be available for about six months. I'd get the 5 now. I'd get it now even if it was a 4S, not a 4. Waiting around and using old technology isn't worth it what you save, IMO. You can upgrade every year for less than $100 out of pocket with AT&T partial upgrades by selling your old one. The bigger screen, better camera and faster processor are worth more than $100. AT&T even waives the upgrade fees if you do the chat. It takes three minutes.
How you going guys! I know the iPhone 5S or 6 is nearing to be released soon...maybe, but l just couldn't wait any longer and ordered an iPhone 5 white 64 GIG. My contract was up and Optus, one of our telco's 'down under' made me a deal too good to refuse.
There is rumours that the next iPhone they release will be a cheaper version with coloured plastic back covers, something l'm not real interested in; as l love the feel of the current iPhones. There are also rumours of a bigger screen iPhone to be released early 2014, which personally speaking l think the iPhone 5 is big enough for one hand use and side pocket storage. Each to there own.
I love my iPhone 5 and it's a decent jump from my iPhone 4 32 GIG.
What are your thoughts?
