finally, I got myself an iPhone 4
After watching lucky Americans (and a handful of first tier countries) using the iPhone 4 for more than a month, and a very long queuing, I finally got myself with an iPhone 4 in the wee hours this morning.
Here's my queuing story. Somehow, I hope to get the iPhone 4 before 8am (the time Apple Store opens) today, and I had pretty much made up my mind that I am switching my mobile network from Vodafone to Telstra. For two simple reasons: coverage is much more important then the cost (value) of the plan, and the 3G speed is also important. Telstra's NextG network is really fast.
So here is my iPhone 4 story:
To cut the story short: after hours of freezing cold queuing outside, I finally got my 32GB iPhone 4 with a cheap cap plan at around 4:10am. Here's the photo of the iPhone 4 box shot and the Telstra Micro-SIM card in Telstra Shop.
My cheap iPhone 4 cap plan surprisingly has Don's approval. It makes much more sense to pay a few hundred dollars (overall price) more (than just the outright price for the handset), and I got sufficient amount of credit and data to use.
Credit check (credit rating) at Telstra was much faster than Vodafone's when I signed up for iPhone 3G two years ago. The credit check this morning with Telstra was almost instant. I remember well that Vodafone took quite a while to check my credit rating twice. One for mobile broadband, and one for iPhone 3G which took about 30 minutes.
The first thing I did after I got back home (and the quick photo above) was, of course, applying the very important invisibleSHIELD. I guess I must have applied invisibleSHIELD on quite a number of gadgets, this iPhone 4 was the fastest one I've ever applied.
What does applying invisibleSHIELD mean? I will need to let my iPhone 4 set for 12-24 hours for the best results. For the meantime, I will play with my iPad.
