It never ceases to amaze me how Apple can not only make products that I want to buy, they make me want to want to buy them. Such is the point I had reached with my potential new iPhone. After being denied last Sunday, I was still eager to get my iPhone as soon as possible. I was so eager that I even dragged my buddy (and his family), who I was showing around town as they were visiting, back to the Eaton Centre with me when I tried to revisit the Apple Store and get my iPhone again. Good thing he is as big an Apple fanboy as I am so it was exciting for him as well (in fact, he got me a silicone case for my iPhone before I even got one).
So this time, the iPhone gods were definitely smiling on me. I went in to explain my situation, how I was denied, and how the person who helped me before told me to try my luck again. Fortunately the person who helped me this time was able to find a guy who works on iPhones and didn’t have any appointments for another hour and a half. Yay! So, he helped me out, the system was working, and he got me all activated on my new, white, 32 GB iPhone 3GS. It was a sweet and simple ending to a minor minor ordeal.
Now, I’m still kind of feeling my way around the iPhone, discovering new fun things every day. I was so excited when I could restore all my apps (not all of them, mind you. I took the opportunity to trim down) and get going again.
So, there you have it. I now have joined the throngs of iPhone addicts. I have already benefited from the use of my iPhone when my buddy wanted to eat at Red Lobster when we were in Niagara Falls. I quickly looked up Red Lobster and Google Maps helped us get there. Hooray for instant gratification!
