    Why do you have an iPhone 5? Any specific reason as compared to other phones available.

    My mother had an upgrade available at the time and I needed something newer than the iPhone 4 that I had. I believe I waited for the iPhone 5; yeah I don't believe I've gotten a 4s or any iPhone with a letter after the number.

    I have enjoyed all of the iPhones that I have had, and will stick with it, but one of the reasons I upgraded was for Siri. She is a lot of fun to talk to for the laughs and giggles from her responses.

    Panorama is another feature that I continued to see commercials for, thereforee I just had to have it! Using Panorama is just awesome in my opinion. It's great!

    Overall, I love the iPhone 5, and will not be upgrading until the iPhone 6 is released.

    Wanted LTE mainly. The longer screen was welcome, though. I also like how light the phone is compared to the double glass 4/4S.

    Question regarding LTE. I'm currently on the 4S, so I get throttled when I go over 3 GB of data on my so called "unlimited" plan. When I switch to the 5S, because that is an LTE phone, will my throttle limit increase to 5 GB, even though most of my data usage will be in an area that doesn't have LTE towers?

    Yeah, your soft cap will increase to 5 GB when you get an LTE phone regardless if you actually use LTE.

    Because I'm hooked on gadgets and Apple makes the best gadgets in my humble opinion... iPhone 5 is a beautiful phone inside and out.

    I got the iPhone 5 because of the bigger screen. I have screen envy of all those Android devices.

    Lte is only available in certain areas of my town, so that wasn't a big factor.

    I waited on buying an iPhone since it came to t-mobile. I am an Android girl that got tired of freezes and non functioning phones when I really needed one to make or receive a call. My last iPhone was a 3gs that I sold after 2 years for a great price to help buy my galaxy nexus.

    I was waiting to see what the new iPhones would bring. I got my iPhone 5 because after waiting for the "new" 5s and 5c announcement I was really disappointed with the 5c- pretty much the same as the 5- and the 5s had a better camera and FP sensor(very cool) but with a huge pricetag for the 32 gb. And I am not one to wait on a line to buy something.

    The 5's were going away, and I did not want another plastic phone. All of my Androids were plastic and I was looking for the aluminum body. Since the 5 and 5c phones are pretty much the same after the iOS7 upgrade, And The 5S was $300 for the 32gb and very difficult to get (remember, I refuse to stand on a line to buy a phone and the upgrades on this were not important to me- FP sensor and Camera)- I went to Best Buy last weekend and got a $100 trade in for an old LG Thrive, and I could have gotten the 5 16gb for free, but I added $99 to it for the 32 gb version. It was my son's upgrade. He uses a messaging phone- hates touchscreens and technology. After 14 days I will officially switch him back to his phone. Until then the nano sim is in an adapter in his messaging old fx phone.

    Long story for a sinple question OP.

    That 32gb- iPhone 5 is now on tmobile with the $30 monthly 4g plan. I like to switch phones- So now I have the iPhone 5, an original Note with a huge screen that comes in handy, a galaxy nexus, and a lumia 521.

    I can hack my Androids, play with a windows phone 8, and have good steady iPhone until the jailbreak comes out for the iOS7. That will be a long wait though.

    I like the iOS7. It has a lot of Androidish features that I am used to- and the 4 inch screen is comparable to the gNex one. I really like the iPhone 5. A happy switcher here!

    Because i refuse to buy a phone that only really offers fingerprint technology.
    As an extra. I want 5inch+ screen! Basically i want an iPhone 6. So my iPhone 5 is fine for now. :)

    Because it is a sexy device. It works when I need it to work. I have never had a gadget that I have loved so much.
