You’ve watched the keynote, seen the unboxing videos and read the reviews. You know everything there is to know about the latest and greatest iPhone — what else could you possibly have to discover?

Well I received my iPhone 5 yesterday via FedEx, and I spent the afternoon testing it in various conditions. How well did LTE work? What is the hardware like in real life? Is it worth the upgrade? This isn’t your typical new iPhone review, it’s a walkthrough of the product with casual and real thoughts as it’s being used. Hit us up after the jump to find out more. (more…)

Pre-orders for the iPhone 5 went live last Friday in the wee hours of the morning, and just an hour later, they were gone. Sure, you can still pre-order an iPhone 5, but now the wait time is 2-3 weeks. I’m sure some of you managed to get in your bid, so what did you order? Let us know in the poll to the right.

In my case, I got a 64GB black & slate model, and I even learned something. I called Verizon on Wednesday because I wanted to switch carriers. When I spoke to a rep, she gave me a number and extension to call on Friday morning. She said that if she wasn’t there, just to leave a message and she’d call me back.

At 11:45, I called her and left her a message. At 12:05 am, she called me and I was done by 12:15. Best purchase experience I’ve had with a cell phone company in a long time.

Point is, next time around, you might try your carrier and see what options they have for pre-orders!
