Then perhaps you should be more grammatically careful. :P

His grammar was fine; 'twas you who misread his post! So, apology for the dust up when you were wrong, perhaps? Yes?

It was not. Thank you for illustrating it twice. ;)

Put your glasses on. There was absolutely nothing wrong with my post. You either misread my post or didn't bother reading what I quoted.

Two hardware issues so far with my wife's phone.

First was a "No Sim Card" message. Many others have complained about it on the Apple message boards. ATT replaced the Sim card and it is working fine now.

Now the phone is intermittently not charging, despite all connectors being seated. I guess it will be a trip to the Apple store now and hopefully they have replacement phones in stock.

This is an iPhone 5/iOS 6 thread... so until some other manufacturer makes an iPhone OR a phone that runs iOS 6, it should be assumed any statements about what one can or cannot do with AT&T, Sprint, Verizon relates to iPhone 5 and iOS 6...

So, please no more attacking each other instead of the topic.

Thank you!

Thanks for the advice, but it didn't fix the problem.

I brought my iPAD to work today, and Location Services is working fine here, so it's apparently not an iOS 6 issue, but most likely related to settings on a new router at home.

I'll do some investigating later this week and see if I can get it working at home again.


I went into my router's setup menu and couldn't find anything that might be the problem and gave up for the day. I was playing with my iPAD later that night and Location Services is now working... :rolleyes:

Maybe Apple maps had your house in space as location services are not supposed to work outside of the atmosphere.

That would be new...

I still get a kick out of how entering my address in Google Maps has my home two miles North of where I am, but Apple Maps has my home 4-5 miles South of where I am.

Space wouldn't surprise me... :)

Anyone else getting hit with the No SIM Card issue? Had it pop up yesterday once and a reboot of the phone fixed it. Today, it popped up with an Invalid SIM message. A reboot gave me a SIM Failure message. A second reboot had the phone working again. I think I might need to make a trip to a VZW store.

Today's problems don't worry me, I haven't solved yesterday's yet.

This issue is all over the net. I think most people just get it replaced.

Verizon iPhone 5 users, be sure to go to Settings/General/About. You should get a carrier update prompt, follow those instructions (select OK, then completely turn off your iPhone, then boot it back up. Apparently there is an issue where it can use Verizon data instead of wifi.

It may just require shutting the phone down, but I know people can go quite a while without a full shutdown.

Got my iPhone 5 yesterday. My wife and daughter drooled over it.

Everything great so far. LTE speeds are fantastic. Last measurment at home was 25M down 19M up! Yippee!

Even in the middle of my work building I'm getting 15M down and 3 up. Can't complain!

Now about that connector...to repeat above...anyone tried the chepie cables yet?

I've only bought Apple stuff so far. One thing to watch out for when you buy a case, neither the Lightning Adapter nor the cabled Lightning Adapter would fit through the opening in the first case I bought.

I gave up waiting on someone to report on cheapy cables and went ahead and bought Apple cables. Apple's site said they would ship in "1 - 2 weeks" but I had them in 2 days from China via FedEx.
