Like 2000kr more before the contract is up after 24 months at least with the plans they're offering for pre-orders (they only have three right now). I have a really good plan right now but the contract is up and I'd like to keep it so I got to buy it without a contract. And I'd rather deal with Apple than ordering through a carrier, every time I've ordered from Telia I've gotten burned on delivery times.

    Importing from the U.S is complicated, if you get caught in customs you'll have to pay a 25% interest of the price of the goods to the government and whatnot.
    Right, which is why you buy it unlocked. But still, considering it goes for $750 and you pay $1041, there is a substantial savings to be had. And how exactly can they find out in customs if it is sent by private mail delivery?

    I ordered two 32GB iPhone 5s this morning. A black for me and a white for the gf.

    12 month contract. Who knows, might have to get an other one next year

    I tried ordering last night when preorders begun but carrier's website was down to its knees. I ordered the phones with 5 minutes difference and there were already 342 orders in between.

    The difference is the VAT essentially. They don't find out if its a private delivery and the sender writes gift on the parcel. But otherwise they'll check. I imagine they do some random checks as well now and then.

    The other issue with ordering from the U.S now is wait times, the initial stock has already been sold online and they only have phones in physical stores now. The wait time from the U.S online store is currently 3-4 weeks.

    Did you order from Telia? I managed to get my moms order through like 00:40 and I had to use Chrome. Wouldn't work in Safari. Kind of funny how Telia's site crashes every year, one would think they'd learn to adjust for the demand.

    Almost left town with a 64GB white one. Only because that was the only one they had in stock the sensible side told me to wait till i get back from 'Merica and buy a 32GB Black like originally intended.

    I feel like O2 have screwed me over, i called them up when the 4S was released and got put onto a rolling contract what I was told i would be able to pre-order the IP5 as soon as it was announced, fast forward a few months and they say i'm last in priority to upgrade. }

    God damn I hate waiting.

    Why the rush, your exsiting phone sends and recieve texts, calls, emails.
    Wouldn't it be cheaper in the US anyway?

    Got to love carriers. I'm glad Apple is selling them themselves nowadays.

    I have one vice and that's buying a new iPhone every two years as fast as possible.

    Halebop. Kind of the same.

    It was impossible to order last night. I just hope I'll get mine a couple of days after release, or early October latest.

    I'm running iOS 6 on my iPad 2. Feels as fast, if not faster, than iOS 5. No reason not to upgrade.

    The whole "scuffing" problem on the black i5 is making me consider getting a white one.

    From what I see there's a lot of people opening the black i5's and finding "scuffs" on the sides and back.

    Well this year for the black i5 is anodized and easier to be scratched. The white is made out of aluminum, and people are reporting less scratching. Kinda shocking that this is happening tbh.

    Well, jeeze. That'll hurt their resale value. Looks like people are forced to put a tacky case on them now, which kinda defeats the purpose of the nice new design.

    Aww man. It's "scuffgate".

    72 pages over at macrumors.

    I'm having second thoughts about the colour. On the other hand, a couple of usage scratches might not be a biggy.
    Whatever the case, gf offered to swap if I want.

    If it's through your own neglect that's fine, but to come out of a factory sealed box like this is inexcusable...

    (and worse)

    They must've used maps team on the paint job

    If you get a black one that's missing color. You obviously have a lemon and it shouldn't be any issues replacing it.

    I'm thinking of buying a 13 inch MBP. I saw that there are rumors of a retina display 13 inch MBP coming out soon though? Any one know if those have any truth to them?

    Meh. I decided to take my chances with the black one. All tech blogs don't make any fuzz about it, so it shouldn't be an issue. We'll find out soon I guess.
