Web listing of Vodafone's Sure Signal suggests it's the same ole, same ole for the Apple iPhone 5

Web listing of Vodafone's Sure Signal suggests it's the same ole, same ole for the Apple iPhone 5
On Vodafone's web site is a product called the Sure Signal. This works as a signal booster for the carrier's pipelines and the web site lists the phones that the product is compatible with. Vodafone's site lists four different Apple iPhone 5 models that will work with the Sure Signal. There will be a Black iPhone 5 with both 16 and 32GB of internal storage, and a white iPhone 5 with both a 16GB and 32GB model.

If the listing is legitimate, it looks like there will not be a 64GB Apple iPhone 5 model even though both the Apple iPod touch and the Apple iPad offer users a model with 64GB of flash memory. And once again, it appears that Apple will try to launch a white Apple iPhone at the same time as the black variant is released. That was the plan last year with the white Apple iPhone 4 until a problem with light leakage forced Apple to delay the launch of the pale iPhone 4 for ten months from the original June 2010 launch date. The white Apple iPhone 4 launched on April 28th as we reported. Hopefully there will be no delay this time.

More is more ... If you have enough storage you don't have to pay for big ass data plans for the cloud :)

Unless you are riding the subway 24/7, then what's your point? Even if you rode the longest route, the A-train (i.e. the blue line) from Inwood/207th St to Far Rockaway, the train is above ground enough for you to receive a signal.

I should go back and visit my friends in NYC. I can't believe the city moved Stuyvesant HS to the West Side. I have to check out the new school.

ardent, it doesnt matter if he has spots of coverage or not. the point was that services like icloud are useless without a constant signal. Guess its not like Google Music where not only can I listen to my songs for free, i can download a few of them to my device for times just like mack is talking about.

more likely to be the 4s at 8GB, along with the 16gb, 32gb, and 64gb

It would be nice to have a 64gb option. I have the 16gb now and that's actually been more than enough for me. The new one I'm thinking I'll go with the 32gb.

I gave you a thumbs up. Your post showes absolutely no bias, fanboyism, or even a shred of ignorance toward any fact. it was a simple expression of opinion and worth.
There's no reason to thumb somebody down just because you may not like them.

Name one phone that comes with more than one color, besides Apple.

There are plenty of phones that come in different colors, the LG Env is the first that comes to mind. Some are just plain old feature phones. But I think it's cool that Apple is offering them both on release day. No one that I can recall has done that with a smartphone.

I mean like actually GOOD smartohones. Like any that are particularly favored more than others. Such as an Android. It pisses me off when people just stir s**t up in a room because they favor one platform more or too much than another.

Especially when Android has the same code as IOS and without it, there wouldn't even be android. Its frustrating.

Ooookay! I'm not sure what that's all about, but Nokia seems be putting out a few phones with multiple colors. And Palm did it with the Centros. Who knows what other manufactures will follow suit

Pink, orange, black, silver, blue, yellow, green...
Nokia N9, Cyan, magenta and black...
Thats better than the iphone.

The galaxyS2 comes in black or white. The LG optimus comes in black, silver, red, purple, and probably more. If im not mistaken the Xperia came in multiple colors. There are dozens of phones that come in multiple colors. Apple wasnt the first, they didnt invent it, and they dont have a lock on it.

Lets see smartphones with colors that are currently being sold

Verizon
Blackberry Curve 9330 (Fuchsia and Gray)
Samsung Fascinate (Black and White, though I think Best Buy is sold out of white now)

Sprint
Same Curve Same colors
Blackberry 9679 (Purple and Gray)
Evo 4G (Black and White)
LG Optimus Black (Purple and Charcoal)
Samsung Replenish (Blue and Black)

AT&T
Black berry Torch 9810 (White and Silver)

don't be a d**k man...they said the same thing last year as well but they had issues with light leaking so it was delayed but it looks like it's all sorted out so if they don't release on the same day that would leave many wondering what's the problem now

How about just a 16GB internal memory model in black, white, or red/silver?
And, then let the user decide on how much more memory he or she needs to add by adding an external memory slot.
WOW!!!! Maybe that will be in the 6th model iphone and there will be a commercial calling the phone revolutionary - just for that feature.

Yep I can hear that commercial now.

"If you don't have an external sd card slot then you don't have an Iphone 6!"

*DISSCLAIMER* most cell phones have carried micro sd card slots since 2005 and Apple and its licenced affiliate are going to patent this micro sd card slot on the external of the phone now just so we have one more thing to go to court with android manufactures about.a

What normal user takes up 16 or 32 gigs of memory? I've used the same SD card that has 16gb of memory for 2 years, and haven't came close to reaching its full capacity. What gives?

bro, which phone are you using? lol if it's a feature phone, i'm not surprised, my 16 GB memory card that i was using on my n97, didn't use up more than 3 GBs, that was mostly my 500-600 songs.
Move to the SGS2, that number went up to 8-9 GB, full of game data for the Gameloft games... then my T-mo Vibrant got stolen :/
moved on to WP7, no SD there but i filled up 8 GBs...
then buy the SGS2 unlocked from England, buy a 32 GB card to go with it... 48 gigs to play with :D
filled up about 12 GBs in a month, songs, games and HD movies... those take up space!

Dude I honestly never want an Android phone again. My phone dies too fast, can't sync my data (dies), and force closes too much. I'm done waiting for a new variant that "supposedly" fixes problems from another phone.

Iphone are closed you cannot put yourself a 32GB microSD as apple must believe it is impossible for an iphone user to remove the back, insert correctly the microSD and put back the cover

But interesting the price difference :
in europe :
iphone 4 16GB = 650 euros
iphone 4 32GB = 780 euros

So thats 130 euros for +16GB from apple

But a micro SD costs 20 euros only - not 130 euros

So any other smartphone user pays almost nothing to add memory

I dont know any other brand like apple with a phone closed impossible to add memory or change the battery
This must be patented also ?

If Android is SOOOOOO much better than the iPhone, go to an ALL ANDROID SITE. I can't wait to get rid of this POS Evo and get something that actually works. And if Android is SOOOOOO much better, why do the Android fanboys need to bring up "Android vs Apple" in EVERY SINGLE ARTICLE? Oh, because you're all trolls. I can't wait to get an iPhone, just so I don't have to go on this stupid website and read all of the bulls**t you post every single day. Have some class and respect the people that like it, or go to "phandroid.com". Its articles that only pertain to Android users. And when I get the iPhone (which I will), I will let you all know how much better it is, and I am ever more happy, for not having to see the immature posts on here.

Don't blame it on the phone buddy. It looks perfectly normal on my Android. You just went ape-s**t on someone who wasn't talking to you.

As for the Evo, its a great phone but it wasn't for me either. I don't think Sprint sales reps (or maybe no carrier's sales reps) take the time to match customers to a device. They see you're interested and they just go into sell mode, not preparing customers for what to expect out of that particular device. That creates an unhappy customer and higher return rates.
I had my Evo for two weeks an sent it back, but the Droid X?! Now that was the best phone I had ever owned. Great battery life, screen, sound quality and built like a tank. I know Sprint was strictly HTC and Samsung for a while, but I think if you had the opportunity to get an Android from Motorola, it could have had a much better experience. I'm not trying to talk you into the Photon now, because it sounds like your mind is made up. Just sharing my thoughts. Anyway, good luck with the iPhone 5!

Your just one sad little man aren't you? I have never seen one person who hates Android so much, keep buying Android phones. Everyone is right, you DO FAIL AT LIFE. I have a EVO 4g and I like, had it since it came out, battery life wasn't good but I got a extended battery. Why would you come here crying about your Android phone but won't buy a different phone other then Android. The EVO 3d is great and I have never seen and lag or issues with it, my wife has one and its pure smooth. It sounds like your on Sprint, maybe you should just switch to AT&T and get the new iphone, that way you can blend right in with the rest of the isheep.

I would rather own an iPhone, be an iSheep, or whatever *** name you can imitate from everyone else than be a robobitch. There's nothing wrong with an iPhone except great battery life and it doesn't take a s**t on you every 5 minutes, like the stupid robot you praise so much.
