iPhone 5 Glitches, Secrets, and Scratches Found Since Launch
Millions of people pulled their brand new iPhone 5s from its clean packaging this weekend, and while a new larger, lighter and faster phone greeted them, some also discovered some unadvertised features.
Within hours after it went on sale on Friday, many new iPhone 5 owners began reporting issues and secrets about their new phones.
Firstly, many Verizon iPhone owners were pleasantly surprised to find that their phones were able to work on AT&T's network. All they had to do was swap out the nano-SIM card in the new iPhone 5 for an AT&T SIM. In the past, Apple had been rigorous about limiting the phone to specific networks.
While most who buy the iPhone 5 from Verizon still have to agree to two years of service with the carrier, this means they won't have to buy a new phone if they want to switch after the contract expires. Verizon spokesperson Brenda Raney confirmed to ABC News that the phones were in fact "unlocked for 3G GSM roaming in the U.S." The phone can also be used overseas with either Verizon's own roaming plans or by using another SIM card.
