    Please please let this thread die.... I've cried myself to sleep each night since the bombshell of no 5.

    The 4S is dead to me. Dead I say!!

    Shock as internet experts are yet again wrong in their predictions about a consumer product. :D

    Vodafone Oz released their pricing structure. Looks pretty good.

    iPhone4S free with the mid to high packages, even the lowest package its only $5 per month.
    Works out at $120 over 2 years, so not a chance i'll fork out $799+ to apple direct, as i'll still be paying the same price for the monthly plan from all networks

    A bigger question about buying the 4S abroad is about Siri. Is the siri version native to that country? So if you buy it in the US will it be able to understand your West Cork accent? People should check this out before buying abroad.

    Other non-approved accents are full of potential bugs and may even be a security weakness (proof: All of the 911 terrorists had non-iOS5 compatiable accents). iPhone users will have to adapt to the standard apple accent.

    I would have assumed it would be set to whatever region the itunes account used to set it up is based in.

    It's no longer a case of Apple saying "you're holding it wrong", now it's " you're saying it wrong"

    Reminds me of that clip of the two Scottish lads getting stuck inside a voice activated lift and they are trying to speaking with American accents to get it to work:D

    I imagine that in the settings, there is a section for Siri where you pick the region.
    I'm getting one soon enough. So i'll report back

    Yes, this is an old thread. I've been posting here before as I was following the launch of the iPhone 5 (or rather 4s) last year. I hope it's ok?!!

    Anyway, the iPhone 5 will be on display at Apples showcase tomorrow at 18:00 00GMT.

    My question is:
    Can I watch the event live online? If not, where best can I watch a repeat (on the same day)?

    Unofficially, probably. Officially, no.
    Best bet is to like cult of mac or something on facebook and watch the stream they put up or that they are using.
    What you will be able to see is still images with audio and maybe a log of what is being said.

    Think the 4s launch was shown on a youtube channel?

    I watch from www.apple.com late in the evening in Ireland.
