Up and running!
Sorry for the delay in updates! When I tried to activate my iPhone, AT&T turned service to my Treo off, but the iPhone still wasn’t activated. I went about 2 1/2 hours without any cell coverage. When I couldn’t get a WiFi signal at the Apple Store, I decided to get out of there and find a hotspot.
I found a nice coffee shop and by the time I plugged in (about 8:30 PM) the iPhone activated and I was in business. Wow, what an amazing device! I had a long drive home so I still haven’t had a lot of time to play with it but I have seen enough to know it’s everything I thought it would be and more. What an elegant device!
I have several friends who also got iPhones. One friend of mine walked into an Apple Store at 7:30 PM and bought an iPhone in less than 10 minutes with no wait. It’s okay, I really enjoyed hanging out all day and getting my hands on one first. My only regret is that I didn’t get to post as much here as I would have liked. Still, it was a successful day and I hope everyone who wanted one got an iPhone.
7:57 PM – No Service
I lost service on my Treo… soon after trying to activate my iPhone my Treo stopped working. I had to find a coffee shop with free WiFi.
When I plug in my iPhone it tells me it needs additional time to activate, and the rep at the Apple Store said it could take up to 6 hours! I waited in line for 10 hours, so what’s another 6, right?!
Right now all I can do is look at this pretty phone and hope it starts working soon… I wonder if other people are having the same problem….
6:39 PM – Trouble Activating
Well this is interesting. I can’t get the iPhone to activate. It said it would email me when it was complete. I can’t do anything but call 911 right now, so I’m patiently awaiting an email.
6:20 PM – Here it is!
6:05 PM – Going In
5:55 PM – Entering Soon
5:30 PM – Black Curtain Removed
They will be letting small groups of people in at a time so they can “experience” the iPhone. I just hope small group means 50 so I can get my hands on one!
4:00 PM – Anxiously Waiting
In just two hours, the iPhone goes on sale…
2:00 PM – Store is Closed
1:00 PM Update
12:00 PM Update
After four hours, it’s not really that bad but I’m predicting that the line will grow the most between 2PM and launch, when the Apple Store is closed. I originally planned to come up around 1PM thinking that the line would start when the store closed. Boy am I glad I decided to come when the mall opened!
