Bugs in software is usual.

Why is it one of the major bugs is bypassing the lockscreen? I have never seen any other phone that has that flaw quite often except the iphone.

Not surprised, all this thing with iOS 7 from the beginning looked rushed.

What was the statement made by Apple's management troika - something about it being 'hard to do things right'?

I guess they felt it was too hard to check how other products handled lock screen processing.

Apple is looking more and more like Research in Motion in their heyday.

And, lest we forget, 'we are not in the business of junk'? It'll be interesting to see what other short comings present over the next few days (makes for good entertainment).

Maybe Apple will say "It's supposed to be that way!" Or maybe they'll say, "we're working on a new adapter; it will only cost $129."

He's probably still on that line with 2 other people trying to use that over-sized thumb of his to unlock his new iPhone 5; I guess it's good that at least he has a big thumb (to go along with that small brain of his). [Transfer please??]

Couldn't duplicate it on my iPad, iOS 7 works great. Bugs are to be expected "sudden death anyone". All and all apple will patch it, then the fanboys will get to talk about another bug. Hey PAPINYC nice of you, and the 4 day PA user Yes-Sir to think of me. Speaking of small brains, at least mine's big enough to not continually get myself limited, for comments that mean absolutely squat and achieve even less. It's fun just watching you post away, till limited appears. Keep up the good work lol. +1

Oh please Mr iRan Over An Old Lady Cuz' I Was Too Bizy' Trying to Unlock my Gold iPhone 5; trouncing on you is worth every second of a 7-day "Limited", I had a blast last week on iPhone 5 announcement day and I look forward to another vacation soon.

Shouldn't you be walking down the
aisle about now; I'm curious, though, which one of you wears the leash??

By the vay, congrats on that tiNy upgrade; incredible to think you've been pulling in all that over-time just to stand on line (with two other people) just to buy it. lol

Actually the iPhones haven't been released in Vegas yet, so that would not be possible. Ran is past tense remember?

What difference does it make:
iPhone 4S - iPhone 5 - iPhone 5S,
"S"ame ole' thing. Only folks with lower than average iQ's think they're different, but, carry on with your iDealization. Oh, and those poor little old ladies need help for their hospital expenses.

Don't you have no self respect Darkkjedii?
You get called bad names, humiliated, by other users and Android, fandroids!
Well you actually are more concerned about getting "Limited" than having an argument, discussion!
It means really a lot to others, to you looks like you don't care! Can't you stand up for yourself! A big guy like you!

The iBusDriver said he will be lining up for a device which still has specs from 2011! Lmao!
See the difference between baaa and Android users!
My lord what a disgrace! This big giant iBus driver will be lining up along with his wife! WTH has this humans turn into! My GOD...

You, along with Papi, are pathetic. Do you feel mighty and powerful assempting to insult Jedi for his preference to go with iPhone? Because 250 million other people, including myself, agree with him. In stead of bashing people who feel differently, go outside and get a life.

Diametrically opposed to your tech choice, but not the man using it.

Enjoy your new phone.

It's ironic that you say that because you're implying that people who went to very good universities and got very difficult degrees and chose iphones as their personal phones have no brains. You must be like what, 16 years old and living with your parents? That's acceptable and expectable, but, if you're older than that, then you're just an embarrassment and should be ashamed of such ignorant behavior.
