Anyone picked up one on release date before? Quite fancy a 5s to play with wilst I'm at the inlaws this weekend.

Thinking a small cpw on wardour st might be a better bet rather than one of the big ones on oxford st?

Avoid cpw. Their "unlocked phones" sim lock as soon as you put a SIM card in.

i updated my ipad first and i really dislike the folders and the wallpaper issue being massive. minor things that sadly mean a lot to me. why the need for all the empty screen space. i like to see all my apps at hand not scroll through for the tenth app. i have since downgraded my ipad back to 6.1.3 and have now no intention of updating my iphone.

updated both the ipad & iphone 5 in the small hours of this morning and both crashed during install had to do a restore on both, maybe due to the jailbreak.

quite like elements of it, its faster, smoother and with the redesign has a lighter feel compared to the dated previous version of ios. may not jailbreak this time around although I'll probably change my mind.

not a fan of the folders could've made the background of the folders a little bit more translucent. also hope apple update the podcast app it doesn't work properly.

Got fancy new iOS 7 on that iPhone of yours? Beware. There's a super simple bug that can let anyone blow right by your lockscreen and look through your pictures, and even share them.

The process was discovered by Jose Rodriguez, and even though it has quite a few steps, it's super easy to master. Here's how it works:

Swipe up on the locked phone to get to the control panel
Open the stopwatch app
Go over to alarm clock
Hold the power button until you get the "Power down" prompt
Hit the cancel button and immediately hit the home button twice, holding it down just a little longer on the second press. Like, buh-baah. It takes a try or two to get the hang of.

Working for me (don't know about Facetime, never used it), but there are other people having the problem.
This might work;
Go to Settings>General>Reset(its at the bottom) and hit "Reset Network Settings".

I've still got an HTC one and iphone 5 and deciding which one to keep, IOS 7 is making me think I might just keep the HTC.
It's not horrendous or anything but it does look very ugly, the dock on the homescreen Messaging looks awful (least mine works I suppose), almost everything now looks worse than it did. Quick setting bit is nice but just catching up to what android had a few years ago.
I was willing to put up with the inability to change anything on my iphone because it looked decent enough as standard but now it doesn't. Of course the main problem with the iphone is the crappy screen size.
