For those always eager to buy the latest in cell phone technology, the wait finally ended Friday morning when the iPhone 5 went on sale in stores across the country. When Verizon in Gulfport opened, the staff said there was a line of eager customers and before noon most of the initial shipment of phones was gone.
Laurie Rhoods of Gulfport couldn't wait to hold her new phone.
"Feels good," Rhoods said. "I almost don't know that I have my phone in my hands."
Rhoods said she's been an iPhone fan for a long time.
"I can do anything I need to get done. I can search the Internet. I can text people, which I do a lot. I just like the phone," said Rhoods.
The phone has been creating a buzz around Verizon's Gulfport store for some time. Store officials said customers were continually asking when iPhone5 would hit retail stores.
"Well they're very excited that it's the first iPhone that's on our 4G Network, so that's the real new thing going on right now," said Asst. Manager Nif Johnson. "So people are excited about that and then it's the operating system the iOS 6 that everybody has been waiting for."
Customers said the hardware upgrades are also impressive. They said the latest version offers a better quality camera and a larger screen, without adding weight.
Mark Brown of Bay St. Louis said, "It's a four inch screen. It's not a three and a half inch screen. It's not a television on the side of your face. You can just put this in your pocket, and you don't even know it's there.
"I really like that fact that on the back of it it doesn't have the glass anymore," Johnson said. "So that's impressive because it tends to shatter easier. So having that and having the case on it really makes it a little more durable than it was before."
The new owners are looking forward to exploring this technology.
"Just more capability with this phone and I guess I've become a gadget head, so now I have one," Rhoods said.
We also spoke with officials from C-Spire Wireless who said orders for the iPhone5 went on sale at just after midnight. They were sold out in about 15 minutes.
