Who got their new iPhone 4 today then……
Before going out and getting one of the first batch if I were you…..Posted 7 years agonjee20Subscriber
I had time to kill this morning before the train, so I wandered into Crawley, there must've been 2-300 people queued outside O2, absolutely unbelievable! Just walked back up through Guildford and there was still a significant queue out of the door even now.
They told me on Monday that they had 3 days supply, but I wonder how many that actually is!
I want to get one, but it can wait, definitely not one of the proper fanboys!Posted 7 years agomboySubscriber
i can't believe that people are so anxious to upgrade their phones. It's consumerism & geekdom gone mad.
Normally wouldn't be, but my 3G iPhone is 6 months out of contract, the battery has practically died on it (like ANY 2 year old phone I might add, so nothing unusual there) and as I like iPhones I wasn't going to get anything else.
So popped into town, the queue didn't look too long (only about 40 people at my local store), though it still took its sweet bloody time to diminish as most silly sods were having to **** about paying lots of money to end contracts on other phones early… That's the silly part if you ask me. At least all I had to pay was £29 (I use quite a lot of minutes so on the tarriff I wanted, the phone is only £29!) and sign a new contract… Well, and wait in the queue, but then I knew I had bugger all else to do today anyway.Posted 7 years ago
just had a go on you, lad at work has got one. if you hold it so you cover the left hand corner the signal drops completely. I'm left handed, so I'm probably not going to get one because of this. Shame cause the HD video and facetime (he phoned one of his friends who also has one) are both excellent. its also lovely to pick up and hold, a really nice piece of kit, just don't hold it in the wrong place 🙄
EDIT: all the field testing they did was with the 4 internals in a 3G case, as they didn't want people to see the design. so the issue with the new case and signal failure never came to light #testfailPosted 7 years ago
Those problem reports are mounting…. There are a lot of unhappy customers out there.
I was planning on getting one in mid-July when I venture down to London…. Might just keep the SIM card in the old Nokia for now though, until they've sorted the problem out.
I'll be forking out £500 for the phone because I'll be getting it SIM free – I want one that works properly!
No doubt the turtlenecked wonder that is Steve Jobs will be offering a few solutions in his normal manner, such as "cut off your left thumb", or "turn down the brightness so you can't see the yellow bits"….
WHY did Apple not pick up on these faults…?Posted 7 years ago

I'm getting a 'skin' for mine I expect which will avoid the 'shorting the aerial' issue.
If you're paying a premium for a phone like this, you shouldn't have to get a cover just so you can get a signal. Why not just get a phone that works properly, or wait till Apple sort their game out…Posted 7 years ago
but surely having something that works is better than having something that doesn't? The lad in our office is already holding it in a strange way….
I'd be taking it straight back, rather than paying more money for an item that makes it work!!! (and I own a macbook which i love, before I get accused of being a hater)Posted 7 years ago

I tend to put a skin on all my phones as I prefer holding them when they have that slightly 'tacky' feel you only get with a skin or a good soaking with fresh orange juice.
Fair point, but personally I don't think I could live with having to put a case on it, as an integral part of my £500 phone's main functionality.
I reckon Steve Jobs must just REALLY have something against left handers.Posted 7 years ago
