Spoke with a Verizon Rep the other day whose family member works in Tech support, and fields the calls coming in from iPhone 5 customers.
I was told that he has over 2 pages of known issues regarding the iPhone 5. I don't know how many issues are on each Page, but it must be a lot.
He mentioned that customers would be well advised to wait until some of these issues are resolved.
That most likely will never happen;
Customers waiting, unless it's on a line, in the rain, during a Hurricane, to purchase one or two, and Apple resolving all the issues.
I did a little research afterward, and see that there are some issues, to say the least.
