iPhone Readiness Program

I’m gearing up for getting my iPhone 3G this week. iThemes.com is doing an equipment purchase for me so I can check my RSS feeds, Gmail, and the Internet without being tied to my computer. When I’ve got class at night, I don’t get Internet until I arrive on campus and have a mad blitz to answer forum threads and e-mails before the professor walks in.

This way, I can check at our notoriously long traffic lights and while I’m at my favorite eatery, Firehouse Subs, which just gets people asking me what network I’m connected to. I just have to tell people I’m being a dorky student writing my paper offline.

I started downloading free TV episodes and apps on iTunes last night, and then I dropped a whole $.99 for a Koi Pond app that was simply irresistable. I heard from a co-worker that AT&T near her house was sold out, so I’ll be going to the Apple store to get the phone and register it, and then drive back to AT&T near home to get it added to our plan since we are both eligible for the “new phone” discount with 2-year agreement.

    We got our new 3G’s a couple of weeks ago. They kind of rock just a little bit. Had to wait 10 business days for the black, but the white one came in 3. If you’re getting the 16 gig, I’d recommend the white. Looks cooler. Comes faster. Kicked Sprint to the curb after 9 years. Coverage is almost exactly the same. Must say that there are a few glitchey things with it, though. And what’s with the no copy or paste function? I mean, cmon!

    I’m just getting the 8GB. I’m just happy to be getting one at all. I downloaded Ambiance, Bubbles, iSoduku Light, NetNewsWire, Warcraft Characters, Warcraft Stat, WordPress, and I am considering checking out getting Mocha VNC Lite to use with my home PC when I forget a file I need.

    The local AT&T store said they will get a shipment tomorrow, but I just might go to the Apple store Wednesday just to be sure it’s in stock when I want it. The check to buy it came today, so I was pretty pumped about that.
