    For those of you traveling to the USA if you going to buy a iPhone 5 buy the AT&T one, will work on our LTE and you can unlock it your self really easily.

    Plug into iTunes
    Restore from backup - gives you a message "your iPhone is unlocked"

    Cut your sim and you away to go.

    I brought back 7 of them and all of them are working.

    Don't buy them in Dubai they about x2 the price of out the box in a Apple Store in the USA.

    First impressions:

    1. Nice hardware
    2. Light
    3. Great screen
    4. Camera is not that great (compared to my Nokia 920)

    Dislikes:
    1. The OS is lagging and getting old I know they working on a new version.
    2. Scratches easily
    3. Apps are slow to take advantage of the longer screen
    4. Not sure of the form factor yet
    5. Even after the update (that's suppose to fix wireless issues) still has issues connecting to wireless.

    What I did like was the iPad mini it's a winner if you using it for things like mags etc but then you miss the real screen real-estate

    My best buy :) and take it where is comes from but honestly - my microsoft Surface device love it. Actually the customers I took there all are apple fan boys and all came back with surfaces and Nokias :)


    Just a FYI

    So white 16g per device if I decide by 7 bought 7 of them and I assume that includes CC transfers etc R6500.

    Don't forget you still have to declare it at customs and that was 28%.
