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.

you can download from iCloud so you don't have a point.

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

So how about the Nokia N8 ? 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.

True, but Apple will definitely sue someone over 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) TOrch 9800 (Red Black and White) HP Veer 4G (White and Black) HTC Status (Silver and Mauve) I'm gonna stop there, cause the point is clear, every carrier has a phone that has color options.

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
