I was able to pickup an AT&T 32 gigabyte black/slate Apple iPhone 5 and I love it! They did a wonderful job with this iPhone.

Black 64GB AT&T. Had Ghost Armor put on it this afternoon before switching from my 4S. Ordered an Elago S5 Indigo case from Amazon ($16). Had the exact same case on my 4S.

I purchased three iPhone 5s - 2-16GB & 1-32GB, all in black. Received all this morning via UPS.

The wife and I ordered custom photo cases from CaseMate but they haven't arrived yet so tonight, we drove to our local Best Buy and picked up two additional cases (Speck for my 32GB and Rocket Fish hard case for the wife's 16GB). We also had the Best Buy tech install two Zagg shields in both of our phones..

The third phone is for our college-aged daughter who lives an hour away. We will bring it to her this coming Sunday yet don't know what case she will purchase yet..

LOVE the iPhone 5.. The BEST yet, as they say..

Got my Black 32GB AT&T iPhone today but haven't activated it yet. Do not want to give up Google Maps for Apple's inferior replacement, mainly. What a major screw up! Will wait and see if Apple approves the Maps App that Google is rumored to have submitted to the App Store. Plus I may want to exchange the Black for the White due to the Black's susceptibility to scratching and flaking. Oh Steve where are you? Would not have happened on his watch.

The maps have a few flaws but it's not like it's useless. If you wanna get from point A to B it's fine. I've used turn by turn a few times with no issues.

Ditched Verizon (didn't have coverage in my area) and went to Sprint. Activated two white 16GB iPhone 5's. no waiting line and plenty of them.

Loved Verizon customer service, not looking forward to Sprint's but then again I'm not extended, and I'm downloading at 3mbps on 3G. LTE coming to my area soon.

Nothing really cosmetically wrong with our iPhones, just mine displays digital interference on the keyboard at times (posted in another thread).

I'm using the brushed aluminum Cygnett case...it fits like a glove!


iPhone was here

I didn't pre-order but on a whim after I got off work yesterday I called my closest Apple store to see if they still had any... And they did! Got to the store around 3 waited about 15 minutes in line then walked out with a new white 16g iPhone 5. I thought it would be another month before I got get one.

64GB Black Verizon. No case nor will it ever have one. To pretty to cover it up. If anything I may get a leather pouch to hold it in my pocket but once I need to use it it is naked.

Not concerned about the scratches and nicks it will get making it look less than pretty?

Got mine yesterday at 12:30pm after preordering last Friday morning. AT&T Black 64GB iPhone 5. Picked up an Otterbox Defender series at BB on Thursday afternoon. Love Otterbox ! Haven't activated yet since we're headed to the beach tomorrow. Will do when we return next week and pack up the 4S for Gazelle. Hope they honor their $370 offer. Cheers !

You know what I've tried different cases on all the iPhones I've had and I always go back to it being naked. I usually get a leather pouch type thing to have when I put it in my pocket. I haven't had any problems. My wife, on the other hand, gets a case for sure seeing that she throws it in her purse and is generally rougher with the phone. This is the case I just ordered from Amazon.

It goes with the types that I have always had. I'm actually glad they have on out already. It definitely isn't the most popular but it works for me.

Unfortunately, I was told that's what all AT&T stores around me received for now. I bought one of those with my student discount, until I receive my Otterbox case. :)
