for those who upgraded to iOS 5, make sure you turn off Contacts in iCloud if you only have one iTunes account...  my wife's contacts merged with mine... what a mess..

Also... I wouldn't back-up to the iCloud either... it takes up way too much space. Ours was full after just one back up from the iPad.

That's how Apple is going to get more money from you, 5GB is not very much.

If you do need more cloud storage for iOS, you might consider Box (box.net), they are offering 50GB for life free personal accounts but the offer is limited:

http://blog.box.net/2011/10/12/were-giving-ios-users-insane-amounts-of-free-storage-box50gb/

It's similar to DropBox and 50GB extra costs $100 from Apple.

These services are similar but not exactly the same as iCloud. They are more like file management storage whereas iCloud is more invisible... but if you need some space to offload pictures and videos (esp those large 1080p ones)... you may want to consider Box.

For any of you ex-convicts... you can untethered jailbreak the iOS 5.0.1 as long as it's not a 4S or iPad 2 (no jb yet for A5 chip).

Never too early for iPhone 5 rumors:

http://www.bgr.com/2012/01/04/apples-lte-enabled-iphone-5-to-be-a-radical-update-bigger-catalyst-than-ipad-3-or-itv/

There's actually been more... and most of them are "new design!!!!" which are vague conjectures and unsupported... just like last year. :D

So is this what it's supposed to look like?

http://www.bgr.com/2012/07/29/iphone-5-photos-parts-release-fall/



While everyone is complaining about it looking just like the iPhone 4/4S... I'm okay with it. I like the 4/4S design and the fact that it's not a humongous 4.8" screen like all the new Android phones. Not too sure about the headphone jack being on the bottom... and if they are changing the 30-pin connector to a different one (MagSafe would make the most sense) that's going to be bad for all the docks/chargers we have.

Mark my words... even if it looks exactly like this and isn't much of a design update... it will probably sell more than previous models as long as it has LTE.

Maybe they should just call it the iPhone 4 XL:

I actually like that they are not making it wider like the current crop of 4+ inch Android phones.

Is the phone going to be LTE compatible?  I'm sick of the slowness of 3G.

The rumors are saying it will be.

It's reason both AT&T and Sprint are trying to get their LTE network expanded and why T-Mobile will still be the carrier without an iPhone (no LTE network).

Only 2 more days! So who is going to get one?

I am looking forward to a bigger screen, LTE, and an updated iOS. Hopefully they have some other surprises as well.

Where is the best website to sell your old phone?

We might get two.

It depends... you may just want to sell it via Craigslist or Ebay to get the most money. Target, Amazon and even Gamestop will buy your old iProduct but you won't get as much as selling yourself.

Today is iPhone 5 day... and that is purported to be the name Apple will be using (not the "next iPhone").

Which Tech Blog server are you going to crash at 10am? I usually go to Engadget or TheVerge.

BGR picked up some French site pics that says this is what it will look like... we'll see in a few minutes:
