|Diane is not too excited about her iPhone 4.|
I decided not to skip lunch. Tim and I had a leisurely meal with leftovers. Boy, I am glad I didn't rush upstairs to activate my phone.
After I opened the package to see a sleek new phone (Apple does an exceptional job on presentation), I thought I would remove my sim card from my old iPhone 3G. It took me a couple of minutes wrestling with a paper clip and watching a video to get it out.
I thought erroneously that I had to place my old sim card into the new iPhone 4. After a call to Mike, he cleared up my confusion. The sim cards are different sizes with the iPhone 3G and 4. I just waisted another ten minutes doing the wrong thing.
Early adopters do make a number of mistakes trying to figure out how new technology works. That can be real exasperating. Especially when you know there is a pot of gold at the end of the technology rainbow.
Mike suggested that I plug in my new iPhone 4 to the computer and let it sync with iTunes. Supposedly I could activate my new phone this way. Not!!!! AT & T has decided that early recipients should wait one more day till all their counterparts receive their new phones. Why did I have to be awarded this punishment?
It is like getting a Christmas present with no batteries. Oh and the convenience store is inconveniently closed that Christmas. Come on AT & T, you can do better. Why did Apple and FedEx work so hard to exceed expectations while AT & T decided to be average or worse. If I didn't like my iPhone so much, I probably would be a Verizon customer.
