Still waiting for my 3G iPhone

Let me introduce myself... I'm Mickey, also known as michelina on www.sk-YOU.com. I work for Sears and will be guest authoring in the AskRob blog from time to time. I hope you'll enjoy reading my musings, rants and raves about many topics and will also share your thoughts!

Unlike the many die-hard iPhone fans who braved the early morning lines on July 11, 2008 I decided to stop in to my local AT&T store later that day to order the much anticipated 3G iPhonein black. I knew there was NO chance of walking out with the device when I arrived at 5pm, but I'd been assured to receive it within 2-10 business days. Placing my order through Direct Fulfillment, I was told, should put this exciting new technology in my hands soon enough.  

Well folks, it's been 8 days and still no word on when it will ship. The AT&T wireless forumconfirms that I'm not the only one who's wondering if this is a minor delay. A friend of mine gently inferred that I might have to wait a few weeks, while another rolled her eyes at me for being so consumed with the idea of having an iPhone at all. "What's wrong with an ordinary cell phone?" she asked. My mind drifted as I quietly envisioned being able to carry carry thousands of songs with me, tapping through vibrant screens to surf the internet and reply to email, and of course, calling my school-aged kids as I typically do a couple of times each day.

But more than this, I really want to learn. I'd consider myself one of those life-long learners. You know the type... always taking classes at the local community college or collecting (and reading) books on a wide range of topics just for the sake of keeping boredom at bay. The thought of figuring out how something that fits easily in your hand can do so much out of the box yet can be customized based on individual interests just amazes me. I'll be curious to see which of the FREE downloadable applicationsI'll use most. I doubt that I'll pay for any applications, unless they're really worth it. I wonder how the lucky ones who have the new 3G iPhone are using it?
