My First impressions: Very impressed with the overall performance of the iPhone 5. The form factor is very different. Not bad, just different. I've had marshmallows that weigh more than this phone. Siri is fun. While she is nowhere near perfect yet, Siri is doing better than expected with my Cerebral Palsy. I have never been able to use voice recognition before. The fact that Siri understands me a little bit is very impressive. I have not played much with the camera yet, but the camera and battery will be put to the test in Florida.

I'm baffled. I suspect it is a server issue but for the life of me, can't understand why synching my new iPhone brought this on.
Its not the new phone Jack. I had the same thing on my current phone. I suspect somebody did some "housekeeping" on the server that resulted in all the podcasts being designated as new.

The timing freaked me out but you are right, it does look like Corey or Dustin (or one of their minions) did some work on the RSS feed. The titles and descriptions on the newly downloaded podcasts have been revised to be more descriptive. The files appear to be identical.

Did they remove the previous Disneyland podcasts from the feed? That could have caused iTunes, etc. to rethink the status of the old ones.

One reason I never have it auto-download them

I stood in line yesterday and got 2 phones the one for myself was and upgrade from the iphone 3Gs to the 5 and the one for DH was from a blackberry to a 5. A huge change for him, so happy to finally convince him how easy the iphone is to use.

I was hoping someone could point me to a website that will allow me to download Disney Ringtones. I have a few in my itunes account from a website that was recommended on the DIS back in May but I can't find it. Does anyone know what site that might be? Thanks for the help.

Edited to say that I found it, it's called phonezoo.

No, the older DL Podcasts are still in the DIS Unplugged feed.

One reason I was wondering whether it might have something to do with the iPhone 5 is that I had several issues with duplication when Apple released the podcast app. A stretch, of course, but the timing was so strange.

I don't know of any websites where the ringtones can be downloaded. A while back, Jeff found a website that explained how to create a ringtone from your music library.

Thank you. I did a little more searching and found the thread. The website I was looking for was phonezoo. Search disney ringtones there and you will fond bunches of them!

Most reports I've read say that the 5 is an improvement, but not a big one, over the 4S. Obviously the larger screen is different. But the new dock connector may be a huge disadvantage if you've already got a bunch of the old cables around.

The 4s was the biggest let down ever for me. At least as in improvement over the 4.

Especially as Siri was never fully implemented over here in the uk!

I picked up my 5 on Friday and am loving it. I went from the Galaxy to finally buying an iPhone. I have been holding out for the 5 and its worth every penny I paid. I love that it shares with my iPad and iPod.

Is there anyone using an unlocked iPhone? What pay as you go carrier do you use?

We live overseas with the State Dept. and my AT&T locked 3g has been useless to me in Romania for 2 years. When we are back in the US for home leave and training I am going to buy an unlocked phone from Apple, but don't know what carrier to use while we are in the states.

Thanks for your help!

A friend of mine bought her iPhone 5 for $199. She then proceeded to sell her 4S on Craigslist for $325! That paid for her phone, including tax, a case, the adapter and a little profit. Can't beat that.
