    Yep I ordered mine last week and got it within 2 days using 1st class postage from amazon. Its a good fit and very thin but I'm not sure how much extra protection it will give apart from stopping scratches.

    Has anyone ordered a 8 Pin Lightning USB Data Sync & Charger Cable off the bay yet, am i safe to assume it will work fine. May seem like a daft question but someone mentioned about only apple cables / adaptors working.

    Same question for the Lightning to 30 pin Adapter too

    The lightning cable has an identity chip in it which means at this time only official Apple cables will work.

    Are you 100% on that, i read that it wasn't an identity chip as rumoured but a chip to tell which pins to do what (as it can be connected both ways)

    1000s have been sold on eBay so your telling me these are all useless :confused:

    Dont think I would trust a £2 cable seems as it cost apple $3.50 to mass produce them

    Can anyone recommend a pulltab case for the iPhone 5? Not crazy money (less than a tenner).

    They are between £6 - £9 :)

    I will hold fire for the moment, looks like i may have to bend over and purchase one from apple. The best thing about the situation is they don't have any stock

    What a joke

    I just have this case

    http://www.carphonewarehouse.com/ph...e5-cases-hard/buy/RFM-IPHONE5-ULTRATHIN-BLACK

    Paid £12.99 in carphone warehouse. Great case that hopefully wont go yellow and no rubber so wont go all baggy!

    I did have a zagg protector on the front screen but I have now taken it off and got a refund because it had a rainbow pattern on the screen (inbetween screen and cover) Screen is so much better without anything on it
