On the same USB hub, a epson printer started making beeping sound, Jawbone Icon blinks red and does not charge to the fullest. I had to remove the lighting connector from the hub.
    Easy fix you have to much plug in and your USB hub cant handle all of the electrical needs of all your plugged in devices! Plus USB hubs are mainly for transferring data and not charging multiple devices.

    I *love* my iPhone 5. I've owned every iPhone since day 1.

    But, I will agree - something is "wrong" with my charging cable. I literally had to rip it out of my USB port the first few times I used it. It has loosened up some, but it's not just a matter of it being new. It is definitely defective in some way.

    But hey -- small price to pay for an awesome device!

    No issues with anything on my end. I kinda like that the connector stays in there a little snug. If people dont like the maps, buy or download something different. Simple as that.

    There's always going to be minor complaints affecting a minority of users. The iPhone 5 is still a great phone And worth the upgrade

    Love this phone. I have a little clear cheap plastic case and it gives me piece of mind. Only thing is dumb 2gb is not enough for me! I want unlimited data. Damn you ATT.

    Agreed. I love how people will pay full price for a phone. $849 that's crazy. I didn't pay a single dime for my phone. I sold my old 4s

    Default People having issues
    As soon as I got my iphone 5 did a visual inspection. So far no scuffing marks, no problems with the WiFi, my only issue is that it eats up battery like my iPhone 4 did. But beyond that nothing else to ***** about.

    Oh I did put the phone in an otterbox as soon as I inspected it and found no scratches on it.

    Well if your asking questions about those items then you haven't bothered to read those threads. For myself I don't have any of these issues an pleased with my phone so far ;-)

    I've had mine since day one and no issues at all. I also never had any issues during the "supposed" "Antenna-gate" on the iPhone4. My Lightning cables are fine they fit a little snug but no more so than any other USB cable I own. I have three Lightning cables total, one for home, one for my car and one for the office and none of them have issues.

    I guess iOS6 Maps seems to have some issues as Apple has apologized for it but I have been using the crap out of it since the first iOS6 Beta and it has always worked for me here in the Atlanta area. I have even compared it to my Garmin app and it's just as accurate and reliable. I personally always felt Google Maps was less than perfect. If I had a nickel for every time Google Maps gave me bad directions, I could buy 2-3 more iPhone5's.
