I finally got one and it is awesome! I've wanted one for awhile but I just couldn't drop the money for it. It's been at the top of my wishlist since one of my friends got one about three months ago. I knew if I waited awhile, I would probably be able to get a better deal once the new 3G Iphones came out.
I could have just whipped out the credit card and dropped the money but things have changed. I am no longer a victim of "instant gratification". I set aside money in a special savings account to save up the money to purchase an Iphone.
My friend, who is not so good at delaying instant gratification, decided he just had to have the new 3G Iphone. Yeah, this is the same friend who just bought his Iphone three months ago. I told him since he'd already purchased the new Iphone, I would take the old one off of his hands. About an hour later, I was the proud owner of an Iphone. and it only cost me $250. Considering the 2nd Generation Iphones are still selling for $400+ on Ebay, I got an awesome deal. All it took was a little patience.
Setting up the service was pretty easy since I was already an AT&T customer. I just switched the Sim card from my old phone, put it in my new phone and setup the service on Itunes and I was ready to go. I was able to get the $20 Iphone data plan instead of the required $30 data plan with the Iphone 3G.
I know alot of people will say spending that amount of money on a phone is ridiculous but we all have our vices. If you've read this blog for any length of time, you know that my weakness is electronics. Some people like spending money on clothing, shoes, spa treatments, etc. I prefer getting a new electronic gagdet and I am happy as can be.
What are your thoughts on the phone?
