    If you do get the iPhone 5/6, the aluminum is very soft, get a case ASAP. This is why:

    I have a Motorola something with no camera and a dying battery. It would be nice to get something with GPS and no camera, but that doesn't exist.

    But, I still like the Samsung commercial. I'm now going out to the garage and put some nice rounded edges on rectangular objects just to infringe on the IPhone design. It makes me feel good.

    I like the softer, pliable silicon cases over rather than the hard cases. Those phones are thin enough that they fumble easily. I've bounced mine a couple of times. The case has done a super job of protecting it.

    I'm no techno-geek. A little over 2 years ago I was a big Blackberry fan because I didn't do well with touch screen typing and I do alot of email and texting on my phone. I got a iPhone 4 two years ago and must admit I really liked the device. Like "they" said, I became reasonably comfortable with the touch screen and the iPhone kicks ass on Blackberry when it comes to surfing the web and using apps.

    Since my 2 year agreement was up and I'm due an upgrade, I stopped in an AT&T store next door to where I was having lunch the other day. The 5 was released that morning and rep told me when they opened, they sold out in 20 minutes. With dumb luck, they just unloaded a shipment of white 32GB iPhone 5's minutes before I walked into the store. The rep laughed and said there were people camping in front of the store that morning and I just walked in and could get a 5. As they say, timing is everything.

    I wanted the black 16 but traded my iPhone 4 16GB for $150 and the white 5 was mine for $200 with taxes, out the door. With the 32GB model, now I can add about 1500 songs (11GB of space) from my iTunes library without using up all my space on the phone----something I couldn't do with the 16GB model----so I carried my iPod Classic and iPhone 4 when riding.

    The moral of the story is I liked my iPhone 4 and I like the iPhone 5 even more. It's noticeably lighter, has a bigger screen and the Siri feature with voice texting that comes with it is pretty.damn.nice. I had no idea about the "LTE" 4G network but its as fast as my home wifi. WORLDS better than the 3G network.

    Damn, maybe I AM a techno-geek!

    It'd be pretty cool if it had a 2 meter radio in it, yes?

    I understand there's a lot of loyal Apple fans, but I just don't the way Apple has their software setup. It's not intuitive to me. So, no Apple products for me. Also, I think their products are overpriced.

    My two year old grand daughter could show you the ropes. I am curious what you do like.

    OK, how many fingers . . . am i holding up?
    And in what orientation?

    ETA on mine 30 days.
    And that's fine, it's a thing.
    Guess I'm not a fanboy, just like the phones and it's time.

    When you talk about phone operating systems, you just haven't lived until you've programmed a Yaesu or Kenwood HT.
