Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Fri Sep 21, 2012, 01:13 PM

Got our iPhone 5s this morning.

I ordered our AT&T iPhones about three hours after they went on sale...

Which made the delivery date, October 5th instead of September 21st.

Yesterday I decided to go Verizon instead. Showed up at a local Verizon store this morning at 5 am and walked out with a black 64GB and a white 64GB for me and my wife.

After ten years, Goodbye, AT&T. Verizon LTE goodness surrounds me. Your LTE is far and few between.

The iPhone 5 is light and fast as Hell. Looks and feels amazing.

1. I just can't do without multi-tasking.... but, congrats.

For all my concerns with AT&T-- which caused me to delay buying an iphone for years, I've had good experience and coverage.

But, I was an old Verizon customer from way back, Sprint for a while and even T-Mobile for a work phone at one point. So, I'm not promoting any cell carrier. But I do need my ability to multitask. I'm amazed that still isn't an option with Verizon or Sprint.

Congrats on the iphones. I look forward to reading reviews, but I'm not going to upgrade right now.

2. Wow, I didn't realize that.

We've been AT&T forever, but we do find some dead areas around. We were thinking of switching, but now will think twice about it.

I can't imagine not multi-tasking.

I'm due for an upgrade, but I think I'll just go from a 4 to a 4S. This weekend my daughter made the switch from her dead, crack-screened Android to the 4S. Since we covered the tab for that, gonna have a wait awhile for "Mom" to consider an upgrade.

3. Please excuse my ignorance but by multitasking you mean being able to text someone while on a...

phone call with someone else or being able to use Safari while on the phone??? And that with ATT you can do this but not on the other carriers??? Somehow I have missed this discussion...
Thanks

4. I constantly pull up something on my internet browser or contacts, or in another app, while talking

on the phone--looking up an address, checking open/closing times, pulling up an email to read back. That kind of multitasking can't be done on Verizon or Sprint's iphone which are locked to the CDMA network & simply don't support this functionality

Here's a link that will explain further:

5. I have ATT so I guess I did not know these tasks can't be done on my iPhone with the other carriers.
