Q: Just got my iPhone 5 from the UPS guy!

I just set it up and synced my apps/some music.

It does feel lighter but not significantly. The new earbuds/mic that come with the phone are nicer sounding than the earbuds they used to have. USB jack is odd looking but definitely a lot smaller. The longer screen is going to take some getting used to since I'm so accustomed to the previous iTouch/iPhone shape/size.
Not much else to say for now since I'm just excited about a new phone in general (upgrading from a Palm Pre here...).

I already have some screen protectors at home. Waiting for the cases though... Hopefully there'll be one in my mailbox when I get home! :D

Congrats! I'm jealous! Mine doesn't get here in at least another 4-5 hours. Have fun with your iPhone 5!

That's what you have to face being in the West Coast, TOTOO :P

Only complaint so far is that I have no data yet. It says 3G but I can't text, go to the app store, or just surf the web without being on Wifi. Going to stop by Sprint later.

(Also, the Maps App they integrated isn't THAT bad. Going to see if there are any discrepancies over time.)

in case someone misses the ups delivery guy and can't wait for the next delivery attempt on Monday you can always call and give the tracking number or infonotice(the yellow sticker they leave at the door) to pick it up at your local ups hub 1-800-PICK-UPS (1-800-742-5877) i think the cut off time is 6pm not sure

I have heard such bad things about their Maps. What do you think so far? I am going to check out the phone at the apple store today although i am sure there will be long lines there!

I heard bad things too. The article about people in the UK seeing museums in rivers, right? Haha

Well I haven't used it much yet. Just used it to see if I can give you a quick review off the bat. It talks to you like a GPS - don't know where to turn the voice off yet. It looks about right from where I am to West Virginia... can't say for sure though, of course.
I like that it gives you a list of directions. If I remember correctly, the Google Maps app on the 4S doesn't have a list - it makes you go through everything turn by turn.

Phone feels nice, sleek, and pretty fast in terms of opening and closing apps. Internet's a bit slow but that just might be Sprint/my location. It's great with wifi :P

Order one on eBay ASAP (preferably shipped from USA to get it faster)

or pay a buttload more at the mall/Apple store/Best Buy/your wireless provider store
