The Iphone 5s & Iphone 5c [not Tri-Band LTE] (was "Next iPhone to be announced on September 10")

Recommended Posts

Apple really screwed the pooch by not offering a pre order on the 5s. I don't get the point of waiting at the store with a bunch of people. With the preorder, I would get it on launch day just like the people in tents outside. So what if I don't get it at 8am. I'd get it around noon. This year, I'm guessing with an online order on Friday, I could probably have it early next week. Good enough.

 

I think Apple likes the publicity of people waiting long amounts of time in line for their phone. When people read those stories they think something must be really spectacular about the phone. What better way to get people lining up than no pre order available?

I wish I could find the commercial that focuses more on "mom and dad," but they will be waiting in line...

I wonder if it's limited availability of the fingerprint sensor. I hope not, as I want them to put it in the next iPad as well.

So you guys saying to avoid the 5s because of the lack of triband?

 

Damn I'm sick of google music. I want someway to play my huge itunes library. I'm still trying to talk myself into it.

The iPhone 5S/5C is dual band thats still a plus you get 1900/800 which is plus , but if you do choose to avoid , you could get a 5th Generation iPod Touch & build up ur iTunes library while you wait for the Tri-Band iPhone 6

I wonder if they are gonna ship less iPhones to the ibez since lte 800 won't be active for quite awhile. Doubtful but just a thought.

Yeah, the IBEZ is the De800MHz Zone.  No 800 MHz allowed.  It will be shot on sight.

I heard the governor of Texas declared "open season" on any 800 mhz device found in the wild...

Problem with an ipod is that I use my phone and music with apps for exercising, daily.

 

I need the GPS and phone capabilities since I do alot of running a long way from home at times.

Rick Perry misunderstood "800 MHz" as 800 Mexicans.

The iPhone 5c/5s are both dual band phones, so you'll still get LTE 800/1900.  

 

One pretty cool feature that Apple has now is iTunes Match ($25/yr) which allows you access to your library from your iPhone without having to store all the songs on it.  if you have iTunes Match you can also use the new iTunes Radio feature without having to hear ads.

Just curious, do people still line up at Apple stores and ATT stores overnight just to buy the iPhone on launch day?  If so, anyone of you guys planning to get the iPhone 5S planning to line up tomorrow night or Friday morning?

I'm there tomorrow morning after I drop the kids off at school.

iTunes Radio is great. And really, so is iTunes Match. I've got 5 devices accessing my media library via Match... great stuff.

Yeah it's really useful.  I like that I can use it with my Apple TV.

Lol I meant more if there was a shortage since some have reported very limited stock already. I wonder how sprint decides which stores get more and which get less. Is it geographical at all.

It is laughable that people -- especially "mom and dad" -- line up for a phone release.  So long as it is funny, I will post it.  Do you have a problem with that?

They probably go by historic data to determine the stores that typically sell the highest volume.

      So, we all know about the lovely iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus User thread, and there are many different device focused threads across S4GRU, but there are none for us older iPhone users. So, why should they get to have all the fun? This thread is dedicated to anything and everything about our beautiful (Spark-less) iPhone 5's and 5S's.
       
      Discuss anything like jailbreaks, hardware problems, how much you love your device, how great it is to have at least one LTE band compared to the folks who still have 4's and 4S's, ask questions and maybe you can get some answers, etc. etc.
       
      Discuss!

      I just joined the LTE party recently, and lucky me, Sprint has started rolling out LTE where I spend most of my time. (Lehigh Valley PA, and Endicott, NY)
       
      Over the years I've read a few "scare" stories of Sprint users getting booted due to excessive data usage. My question is: At what point should I worry? In 2013, is there now a revised "safe zone" of data usage that doesn't raise any red flags? For some reason, I remember 5Gb being the magic number, but now that I've been using LTE, it seems I'm going to suck that up very quickly. 
       
      I know that Sprint has no qualms eliminating customers that use unauthorized tethering, but if I'm following all of the rules using my Sprint device over LTE, how high can I realistically go before Sprint starts to care? 10 gig? 15 gig? Do they even care as long as their users aren't using unauthorized tethering workarounds? 
       
      Also, if I do hit an extremely high amount of (legal) usage, do they send out a warning first, or immediately cancel service? 
       
      I've got a good thing going with my plan right now, and I don't want to be seen as an abuser of it. Since I'm kind of late to the LTE party having an iPhone 4S for so long, I'm not sure what's seen as excessive anymore. 
       
      Thanks for any input you guys can give!

      Via TUAW's article on Apple's relationship (or lack thereof) with China Mobile:
       
       
      We'll know for sure in 26 days, but it's fun to think about the iPhone 5S/5C being true global smartphones, capable of running on multiple bands -- and especially fun to think about the possibility of a tri-band device for us to play with on the new Sprint Network.

      BGR is either really full of it, or on to something, citing a user on Weibo:
      iPhone 5S: New leaked photos, purported full specs point to biggest ‘S’ upgrade ever
       
       
      I can't wait to upgrade my 4S, if anything, for the better battery. After 18 months, I can barely keep a charge past noon.
