i currently have the iphone 4. had the 3. i need a new one, my screen is cracked in half and both my buttons are broken. i use it mainly for text, work email, and web browsing (lgp and fantasy sports) and game play is a distant 4th. is there a different option to consider other than the iphone?

Did you order through Apple? I ordered my fiancee's at roughly the same exact time. She'd be getting the confirmation email though so she might have got one.

TBH I'd go with something with a huge screen if that's what you're using it for. I love my Galaxy SII Skyrocket w/ ATT but it was definitely an acquired taste.

Gotta upgrade if you want good Instagram pix :pop:

I wonder if they are putting an Instagram app on it to replace the camera.

Very disappointed that the new maps app doesn't offer public transit directions. I drive most of the time, but it's nice to have when you are close to a large city like Philly.

Apple probably thinks that Hipsters are back to riding bikes(which they don't have maps for I believe) and driving their beat up VW's.

In due time updates will happen in regards to those maps. I can't seem them neglecting it.

Pretty much the only thing I was looking forward to in the updated Maps app was the turn by turn voice directions. Of course I have an iPhone 4 and voice directions is only on 4S and 5. Nevertheless, someone told me to check out the Waze app instead, and it's pretty good.

So the iPhone didn't have Navigation powered by Google Maps?

Anyone update to ios 6? Apparently there's an issue where people cannot connect to wifi. And it's a major one. I'm holding off...

Major controversy brewing over how crappy the new Maps is. I am seriously thinking of cancelling my iPhone 5 order.

I'm definitely going to check out the Samsung S3 this weekend. My iPhone 5 isn't shipping for 2 weeks, so I can ditch it this weekend if I have to. Hopefully ATT doesn't do something stupid like auto-renew my contract even though I cancelled the order from Apple (I know they will /sigh)
