    Great shots! I was raised in Sacramento. Every so often I get back there for a visit with family. I'm jealous you guys got to see the shuttle.

    Me too. Preordered that Friday when I got up, had the box by 9:30 am this morning. No muss, no fuss.

    By the way. When I was on the phone today with AT&T, I asked nicely if they would refund the activation fee. They did. Hey, $40 is $40. :)

    My online order was placed a bit later that first day. My delivery date is now the 27th. UPS tracking says it's waiting to be picked up in China. :)

    Stopped by the AT$T store at 10am. Bought two 5's (both 16gb, one white, one black). They had plenty in stock. No waiting in line and no pre ordering needed. We upgraded from 4's and I'm pretty impressed with the speed increase and I love the new design.

    I sold 2 16gb 4's on Craigslist today for $200 each. It's crazy how these things hold their value.

    We will be upgrading our 4's to 5's next month. I can't imagine an iPhone 5 owner going with any network other than Verizon.

    have all for work, att, sprint, verizon - absolutely detest the inability to have voice and data access concurrently issues that Verizon and Sprint have, makes it difficult to conduct a impromptu meeting when you are not in the office and there are documents and emails being sent back and forth for review. Besides where I live and my home office is, two cans and a string are better reception then verizon - just like a dry state - no bars

    And I can't imagine why anyone would want to go with Verizon. You can't take advantage of the full capabilities of your phone. "I'll find a movie for us to go to. Let me call you back because I can't do that while I'm talking to you on Verizon".

    I really don't get that. Other phones on Verizon can do that. It does seem to be an Apple decision regarding CDMA. But, for many people it doesn't much matter. I mostly use data on wifi, rarely use the phone. All the other family is on Verizon so don't use minutes, good coverage and I signed us up for a good discount.

    It requires a third internal antenna and Apple omitted it. Oh well, it's a superior network nationally for both LTE and 3G. Plus, every time I seem to need voice and data simultaneously I just so happen to be on wifi and if works on wifi.

    I think it's because less people talk on phones then text now so talking and surfing is down among the target audience. I was always surprised that the CDMA carriers never came out with a commercial of kids laughing at someone talking on the phone and surfering when they would send links via social networks and things faster.

    That depends on where you live. Down here, AT&T is superior to Verizon in every way....and of course as others have said, not having voice and data at the same time is a deal breaker.

    Hopefully AT&T can improve those LTE speeds.

    I held one of these today and I really felt like I was holding an old Nokia candy bar phone. I'm glad for those who like them but it's just too much of a rectangle. It's unfortunate because I think the next upgrade I will be swapping over to them unless the Win 8 phones are out and up to speed.

    However getting everything on one iTunes account could save me some serious money.

    This is not an issue with Sprint's HTC EVO LTE. I can easily do voice and data simultaneously, and this was in a market not yet LTE capable.
