The Amazon vendor gave us credit for the amount promised.
I am sure some folks misrepresent the condition of their phones to their advantage.
We did not, but the phones we sent were in near pristine condition.

Oh, now this is starting to suck even more. Is this really true? Can you cite some articles?
According to http://appleinsider.com/articles/12/09/ ... n_networks, your statement is not true.

for clarification, the iphone 5 hardware simply won't allow it, it's that new architecture for LTE, where there is only 1 radio, instead of LTE having it's own radio
One of the articles I read suggests that as LTE matures (not sure what that means, exactly) then providers like Verizon will be able to have SVD. I don't totally understand why/how GSM can do this and LTE cannot. You'd think the next big thing would at least have what seems an important feature of older technology...

Although you still can get what AT&T is advertising as 4G, HSPA+ when on a phone call with AT&T.
In any case, compared to iPhone 4 - the iPhone 5 is impressive in every regard
