The picture above says it all.
Can you tell we didn’t get to pre-order the new iPhone 4G? Couldn’t get through on the Apple iStore. Couldn’t get through via our account on AT&T. AND couldn’t get through via friends’ iPhone app. Oh!!, or the AT&T 800#!!
How could 4 methods of purchasing a phone have ALL FAILED?!! How could they not have prepared for the massive interest?!
It’s upsetting. Not on the level of a BP oil spill upsetting, but nonetheless upsetting. Only reason being that I was excited for Palo Alto. He’s dying to get the new phone and was excited about pre-ordering. I was excited FOR HIM. But now, I’m just pissed off at AT&T and hope that they don’t disappoint him even further by providing crappy service when and if he ever does get it.
To add insult to injury, I wake up this morning to a friend’s Facebook post that he mistakenly bought FOUR iPhones! AT&T was not quick on sending confirmation emails and so in his obsession to upgrade, and be sure that the order went through, he kept reordering and ended up with FOUR!! Wonder how many other people that happened to.
I’m going to see how Palo Alto’s experience with the dumb iPhone fares before I cross over (have been a happy Blackberry customer for years). Part of me is hoping it’s mediocre or bad so I can go to Verizon for the HTC.
We’ll see. He should have his iPhone sometime before Christmas.
