Biggest plus: I like the downstairs notification center that has the brightness wifi and Bluetooth

Biggest minus: new multiple page web browsing. Hate going vertical rather than horizontal. I keep closing out of everything.

It needs that space to work, then it dumps files.

Wife got a 5c and Verizon had a 32gb 5 in black, so I got the "old" version, but its not plastic. Playing with them now.

I just got the 5s. The fingerprint thing is nasty. Way faster than the pass ode route.

Homeless iPhone fight in Pasadena: 'It was crazy,' witness says
Pasadena Police Lt. Jason Clawson confirmed that a fight broke out about 9 a.m. as a man left the store with multiple iPhones. Several homeless people said the man picked up dozens of people at homeless shelters downtown, drove them to Pasadena and promised to pay them $40 -- $20 for each iPhone voucher they were able to secure.

Clawson said the fight broke out when people who were in line and hired by the man began fighting with him because they said they weren’t being paid enough, Clawson said. Police escorted the man from the scene, he said.


In another story, one person - who lives on Skid Row, remember - said that the overnight bickering and arguing amongst the 'legit' customers in line meant that he didn't get much if any sleep, and that he felt it was "an unpleasant experience."

Is it faster than my unsecured method?

Likely not, but if you need pass code protection for work, it's ideal.

Yep, got the 5s, wife got the 5c. Love the fingerprint. Camera seems better, but I haven't taken many pics yet. Speed has never been that important to me, but this sucker is fast. Battery life seems much better as we'll.

I got tired of hearing the same songs over again on Pandora. So far with iTunes I'm getting a lot more variety. Although I like the idea behind Pandora's Music Genome project, where music is grouped together by musicologists based on a variety of factors, as opposed to iTunes grouping music based on listeners' preferences, the fact is that Pandora only has a million songs to choose from, as opposed to iTunes' 27 million. More songs = more variety.

The wife got the 5c, but I haven't found a single store within a 20 mile radius that has the 5s for Verizon in stock.

We were at our Verizon store at 2pm yesterday and they only had the 16GB in white, no black or gold.

My seester got the 5s. It's cool but definitely not a major upgrade. The look is sleek but iOS7 totally looks like a DROID OS

I've checked a bunch of different stores when i've been nearby and none have had anything but the 64gb 5s in White. Its not really that surprising, its basically a requirement to have an iPhone in NoVa/DC.

Our iPhone 5s can't get here soon enough. After three incident-free years, Denise just destroyed the front screen on her 4. :thumbdown:
