This post probably will have nothing to do with anything athletic, although my blood pressure rose several times during this process. But, when it's all said and done, I FINALLY GOT MY IPHONE!
Jennifer and I have been behind the times ever since we got our first cell phones. I've always had the freebie that they give you at the store. We're both pretty
Basically, ever since our contract ended on June 24, I have googled the new iPhone EVERY day. I was up to date with all the rumors about iPhone 5. I knew what the cases looked like before the phone came out. I read everything I could get my hands on. Can you imagine my excitement when the iPhone 4s was announced? My sister was totally on the ball and called me asking if we were ready to Pre-Order on October 7. Oh yes we were!!! So, Mindy called on October 6 to talk with AT&T. They said they would call her back the next day. Well, it just so happened that she missed their phone call, so we technically didn't Pre-Order till October 10. For all we knew, the phones were to be delivered to her house in Chattanooga on October 14, just like everyone else's!
With eager excitement and anticipation, we waited by our old phones to get the call that our NEW phones had arrived. That call never came. In fact, we waited several days. Finally, Mindy got and forwarded an email to me that said that our phone had been back ordered and would be delivered in 21-28 days! Are you kidding me? That is ridiculous! But we waited...
After two weeks of waiting, the money had been taken out of our account. That email had stated that they would not take the money until the phones had shipped. Well, I finally called AT&T to see what was going on. They were of course no help, but said that we would have our phones soon. Jennifer's white iPhone shipped that very day. It arrived the next (IN CHATTANOOGA), and we continued to wait for my phone to ship. Again, after another week, I called AT&T to see what was up. They said that the black phones were more requested, but we should have it before the end of the week.
In the meantime, we decided to have my sister ship Jenn's phone to us. I was already planning on driving down to Mindy's house, and I would pick mine up this past weekend. USPS was supposed to deliver Jenn's this Saturday, but NO! We again were so frustrated. I felt like a little kid waiting for Christmas morning. We were so ready for our new phones!
I drove down to Chattanooga on Sunday, and finally got my phone. Man, I feel like one of the cool kids now. Kevin Neumann wondered if I needed some help getting into the cool kid club. See his Facebook message:
Well, Kevin, I made it, and so did Jenn! Her phone arrived on Monday, and we've fallen in love with Apple. I sure was missing out before I got this phone. I absolutely love it! It's so much fun and does everything! Yes, it was worth the wait, and I'm really pleased. Thanks for listening to me vent and whine.
On another note, we've got 15 days till the Atlanta Half-Marathon. It's been pretty crazy around here, and I haven't been doing much running. I'm sure Jenn and I will put in some more miles before race day, but I'm lacking a little motivation. The best part of running on Thanksgiving day is not feeling guilty about pigging out later!!! :)
