      I get it on the keyboard in certain situations that I can't reproduce and only in the "secondary" keyboards like the special character one. It's happened only 2 or 3 times since I got the phone (release day). I should've got a screencap earlier when it happened.

      I'm thinking of purchasing a iPhone 4S from someone but my wife uses T-mobile. Will I be able to unlock it for her or will I need to ask the person I'm purchasing the phone from to do it?

      I've read that AT&T will not do it if they are still under contract though. I'm assuming this person still is, and just upgraded to a 5. Any solutions for this?

      If the seller upgraded, he should be able to call ATT and have them unlock the 4S, since it's linked to his account.

      Had the SIM card problem hit me on Friday. Rebooting the phone only worked for about an hour or two and reseating the SIM only lasted for about a day. Went to the Apple Store on Sat and the Genius said he only read about it that morning but I was the first he's come across. He said to reset the network settings and see if that helps and it doesn't then bring it back and he'll swap it out. I also cleaned the card with an eraser (as one of the suggestions in the thread) and haven't had any issues so far. Just a heads up.

      I used Ephpod (ephpod.com) to transfer everything and salvage my music collection after Katrina. Give it a shot.

      I wouldn't mind having the dock for my desk at work, but can I get the cable without the LED lighting?

      We get enough crap as iPhone owners without having a silly flashy blinged-out cable.

      Yea I'm pretty sure you can buy just the dock as its got the same lightning connection as the bottom of the phone. So you'd use your OEM cable.

      I average 8 GB a month. Besides normal text, data usage, I'm on the road a lot and DL a ton of podcasts.

      I got drunk Saturday. Started tossing my phone around incoherently. Everyone nearby acted like it was a legit baby. Called out GS3 owners on FB since my phone was perfectly fine. Made a video which you'd only be able to see if we were FB friends but anywho...6'-3" drop test = success. Aluminum dinged but nothing cracked.

      I can't believe I have to ask this but I do.

      On my older cell phones it would display the name of the contact with the number below it, like this:

      Big Lebowski
      902-111-1111

      The Iphone4 does not do this. Can this be enabled in some way?

      If that's sarcasm I sense, I found it pretty funny I bought Apple Care with my 5 as I did with my 4. Got my 4 replaced two years in a row. When I'm in need of a new 5 I'll sport a case then to keep it pristine.

      I've never understood people who will cheap out on a case or a screen protector for a $600+ device. Good on you, though, for being smart enough to get Applecare+. If only everyone had the foresight to do that. I've actually been cussed out by customers for not pushing them harder on Applecare+ or insurance after they smash their phone.

      I have a Zagg HD front shield. I was hoping Apple would release a bumper but found out they have no intention to do so due to the robust new design. And since I had already dropped it a couple times at H2Oi, I figured I'll test the limits case-less and utilize my Apple Care when the time comes. I really want an Element Sector case but at $160 I can wait for my next replacement 5.

      I use a Steinheil case and it's pretty good. I'm using a $5 case with it too, so I cheaped out. Lol

      Holy hell lte sucks data. Never ever crossed 2 gb per month in my 7 years of smartphone ownership. Just sailed past 7gb this month, and I have a few more days to go. Luckily I still have unlimited AT&T data.

      Be warned people on tiered data you will probably be paying for I higher plan.

      Are you sure this isn't the "Wi-Fi doesn't use Wi-Fi" bug mentioned earlier in the thread? Or do you never use Wi-Fi to begin with?

      Lte is so fast that I hardly turn on wifi. But besides being on the can I never browse with my iPhone at home.

      I definitely use the phone more then my 4s, but not 4 times more.
