Apple’s 3G iPhone Hits Stores: Worth the Wait?

Submitted by: triplej 9 years ago in Tech

On my way into work, I saw the Apple store with a line 3 blocks long. And that"s with all those known software glitches.

I like how they say that they activate them in the store to be more helpful but really they`re doing it so people can`t ship them over sea`s where they are worth more money. And so that you can`t just unlock them and use them with a different company.

I could have gotten an iPhone, but since the iPhone still has bugs, I decided to get the iPod Touch, since everything from the iPhone that doesn`t require a phone service or satillite connection, gets ported over to the touch, and a phone with great reviews, which ended up being the BlackBerry Curve.

@decoratedbox, awwwww. That sucks. I figured since it was a new phone and all, they would`ve changed some security features and crap to make it "uncrackable" again.

Wow. You people sure do bitch and moan a whole lot about tech.

How `bout some appreciation for the good stuff in the world, huh? People have new phones, regardless of whether they work quite like they should right freaking now or not. Lighten up and be happy for people other than yourselves, you smug bastards.

mikhaillost,

All you need to do is backup the data on your system and and boot through your Ubuntu CD. Then format the drive that contains Vista and you are done. You can do the same thing if you have a bootable XP installation. I recently upgraded my laptop to good old Windows XP from Vista.

@Randy- You do have to buy the service plan, and I`m pretty sure it`s already cracked.

I was going to by one so I could be that poo hole walking down the street going "Yeah. It`s great talking to you on my NEW APPLE IPHONE. Yeah. It`s a BRAND NEW APPLE IPHONE THAT I AM TALKING TO YOU ON!!!!" But then I remember I have no one to talk to because Dell isn`t a popular brand of computers and no one wants to talk to a Dell user. Still... Better to be alone than a Mac-ie.

the way that guy was smiling game me the creeps. no way better to discribe someone who looks brainwashed then to tell them to look at this guy. looked like a cult member and one of those religeous people who really believe everything that comes out of the mouth of ther priest, minister or whatever other religious leader type person. normally you can tell the deference between a religious sheep and a cult member. this guy looks like he goes to church on sunday to help the priest molest little boys cause the priest told him it was gods will then goes to cult rituals and takes it up the ass from the cult leader the next day all with a smile on his face cause he knows for a fact that molesting children and anal sex will get him in to heaven without a doubt cause people he knows nothing about told him so.

thats a really long complex first impressions...

Now, are they doing the same thing with these as they did last time where you HAD TO buy a service plan right then and there along with the phone?

Are we going to see another "race to crack the iphone"? Because I, personally, found that hilarious.

Crazy apple knuckleheads, they will shell out stupid money for anything won`t they. `Ohh look at me, I have GPS and i can surf the web in my hybrid while sitting in traffic listing to my ipod hookup as i straighten my black turtle neck collar.` Oh yea, I`ve got a big dick!

The price of the phone is pretty reasonable=$200.
But, each month I heard that it costs something like $70. (Calling, Text, Visual Voice Mail, E-Mail, Internet, GPS, etc.) I definitely can`t afford that.
