    Default What are YOU doing to get ready for the release of the new iPhone?
    The questions simple; What are YOU doing to prepare/get ready for the release of the new iPhone (Be it financially, selling old items, saving...etc)? How are you getting ready for the release of the new iPhone? Do you plan on waiting a while after the release to get the iPhone or do you plan on camping out to try and get the new iPhone on day one?

    Yea my upgrade isnt supposed to happen until 1/1/2011 but I'm sure I can get around that since my original iPhone's screen went blank and they tried to tell me I had water damage (which wasnt the case because I dropped the phone, not got it wet). They tried to tell me it was due to water damage and asked me if I tried to take a phone call while I was in the shower (i know lol) so I told them " No, I didnt try to answer a call while in the shower and NO I dont use my iphone as a rubber ducky and no Im not 9 years old so I dont have rubber duckies anymore." So they allowed me to get a new one by using an early upgrade when I was only 5 months into my 2 year contract which began 1/2009. So Im sure if I argue enough or concoct some sob story about my iphones messed up they'll allow me to get another early upgrade again lol.

    I'm never worried or frantic about the new item coming out but happy my current 3G is working well.
    I'll get the new one when my contract is up and sit back and read the reviews until then.
    I never buy the first of anything.......... urrr first iphone...
    then goes on sale for half price.........first ipad.......WIFI?
    3G comes out a month later......
    Blackberry storm.....well......you know! ugh!

    I may try for an early upgrade after all the smoke and craziness has cleared .....

    I like having a good cache of reviews so I know what I'm in store for when I upgrade.

    I'll wait for a month or two then buy it. I'll wait to I see what bugs are reported first and then buy.

    selling one of my legs eBay,
    hurry, you still have 6d 23hr 15 minutes and 87 seconds,
    that should cover the phone...
    Then I've been staking out a Credit Union, If I get away with it.. that should cover my new ATT bill.
    when all else fails, someones got to deliver the new phones to the stores... I can always intercept them and hijack the goods as a Plan C.

    Just kidding everyone just anxiously waiting like everyone else.

    Ummm...it's the launch of a new iPhone model, not a trip to the moon. I don't think this is something that really needs to be prepared for.

    Now, if you had asked what I was doing to prepare for the apocalypse, I could have told you about all the boxes of twinkies I have stored in my basement...

    I am preparing for the price of the 4th gen to drop on eBay so I don't have to sell my soul to AT&T.

    Well, I will give my 3gs to my mother since she loves the "craps" and chinese poker games on my iphone and I will use her number to upgrade. She didnt upgrade her phone for 3 years. She deserved a beat up old 3gs from me.

    Won't even be buying it.

    Although I will definitely be watching the keynote on Monday.

    Nothing. I'm with T-Mobile and there's no way in hell I'm paying what they'll be going for on Ebay or wharever. Ah well, I'm happy with my 3GS for now.

    I'm planning on Getting it the very first day it's out. I've never "camped out" or anything like that for a device, but I ink it's a good time to start. I'll be buying it full price since I dint want to lose my unlimited data. I'll then sell my mint condition, jailbroken 3GS.

    If you already have the unlimited data plan with a contract you can keep it. They wont make you change it. Only new customers have to choose one of the new data plans.

    I havent decided yet which of the following paths I will take but most likely either B or C;
    A)preorder and have it shipped to me (very unlikely, I have to have it day one)
    B) Preorder and pick it up in store at my local Apple store at the opening of the Apple store on June 24(Apple.com says that this is an option.... this is most likely the plan of attack I will take)
    C) Get my you know what up at 4:00 AM june 24th, Fill my thermos mug full of hot coffee, get me a box of hot fresh donuts, grab my book sack and pack my morning wall street journal, a pack of cig's, my "Protection" (its gonna be 4 am and I'm gonna be by myself and I'll be damned if I get robbed), grab my Lawn chair and drive over to the the local apple store at the mall (its an outside/free standing apple store so no having to ninja my way into the locked mall) and wait till they open (which i would imagine would be around 7).

    I plan on putting the purchase on my credit card and then using the money I get for my birthday a few days later to pay for for the purchase placed on my card....

    I plan on getting the Black 16gb (not feeling the white version nor do I feel like I need the 32gb version) and MobileMe so I can have FindmyI in case someone steals my iphone or I lose it...

    Think my 18 months is up this week, lucky timing really. As far as I know on o2 you can exchange an iPhone for 150 so with any luck will only be a small amount to upgrade. I've got my final law exams in 9 days time so that will keep me busy til 24th!

    I have never camped out at a store before but I think I might this time 4am outside the o2 shop yep and as Wilbourn said a thermos full of coffee and smokes job done!

    I wish I had a miniature elephant that fit in the palm of my hand. I would pick him up and he'd lift up his trunk and stand on his back legs and say PRRRRRRRRRRRRMMMMMMMMMPPPPPPPPPHHHHHHHH and I would say yes little elephant i love you too.
