After waiting a day to get the iPhone and avoid the massive lines and over night stays required to get one on the first day, Ryan and I packed up early and headed to San Antonio where we waited in a short line (we were number 22) for the new iPhone.
They told us they had 36 on hand in the store, 5 black 16gb, 10 white 16gb, and the rest black 8gb iPhones. Of course I wanted a 16gb and of course I wanted it in black.
Unfortunately, or so I thought, the last black 16gb iPhone was sold to the guy in front of me. However, the white one is’nt so bad after all. In fact, I like the look o the white one more than the black one so I guess in a way, I lucked out.
We got the phone no problem, I got the black inscipio case and the really nice screen protectors and pulled out my laptop to finish the setup. We figured we might as well get it all activated before leaving the store, should there be any problems.
I didn’t have any of the troubles other people were having in the day before and the entire deal went over just perfectly, despite was Chris Pirillo has been incessently blogging. Direct fulfillment was your own mistake Chris…
Anyways, I digress. The AT&T people did the best they could and everything went so perfectly and smoothly, not a single hiccup.
So far the new iPhone 3G is everything I was promised. Great service, great speeds, great built quality and the battery life is working out just fine for me.
No complaints from me so far but if I get anything, I’ll be sure to let you know.
