    Exactly what the title says... all those who received their 3G S, was the wait and/or price worth it? Are you happy, sad, mad, glad, no thoughts yet, or other?

    Voice your thoughts here!

    P.S. There was a four person line for the pre-orders (I got there at 7:10am)

    There was a 3 person line at the ATT store I was at. I am happy with it. I sold my 3g on ebay unlocked for 550$ and used an upgrade on our family line to get the 32gb 3gs for 299$. 250$ and a new phone with new features was definitely worth it in my case and a no brainer! I am not sure if I would have spent anything above 400$ to get the phone but I love the new camera and the speed on the 3gs is definitely a lot better. The lag time when switching between things like apps and the phone and stuff is a lot less...I will update again once I play with it some more.

    Glad to hear that. I did notice how fast it was w/o even going into apps. The response time from flipping screens, using home key to quickly go to the search as well as waking it up from sleep and sliding to unlock.

    I haven't taken mine out since the store. I really want BeeJive to update before I start using it.

    Picked mine up at the Apple store in Boca Raton this morning, was about 20 in line around 5am, got pulled to front of line at 7 because of reserved phone and by the time I left line was close to 150 people!

    All in all, I think it was worth the purchase simply to have the battery meter give me a percentage, seriously, 200 dollars was worth it for that reason alone!

    haha I like the battery meter too...

    I hear you on BeeJive as well I am a little disappointed that a lot of the apps arent updated or ready for 3.0? Are there any updated for Push Notifications?

    I believe it is being done on purpose.

    IM apps that were submitted a long time ago (especially AIM; BeeJive a week I believe) and ESPN score center. I guess Apple wants to make sure the activations go as smooth as possible then releasing them.

    The dumbest apps have them approved.

    I love mine, but I also upgraded from a first gen, so it was quite a jump. You're right, Duvi, just switching through screens on the springboard feels faster. Scrolling through lists, too. Loading the Sims was insane! That's where I could REALLY see the speed. Wow. I love my 3G S

    Glad you're happy with the purchase. I don't really play games, but was thinking of trying that out as well as the Metal Gear one.

    I got to the At&t store around 8 and there was a short line of about 5 people by then, I got pushed to the front though because of my preorder. Got my info moved to the 3G S, got my girlfriend hooked up on the 3G. Out the door in 15 minutes.


    Was cool though because Brendan Haywood (NBA player) was sitting next to me getting his 3G S

    Hey folks. I'm new here. My iPhone 3GS is on the FedEx truck right now, and should be here soon. I'm porting from Verizon.

    Question - How long does the phone take to charge and activate? And should I go ahead and apply the Invisible Shield before I plug it in? I'm paranoid about scratches, but I know I'll want to play with it. Still, the Invisible Shield is supposed to take 12-24 hours to fully set.

    Thanks in advance!

    Loving my iphone...there were approximately 5 people in line when my fiance' and I arrived at 6:15. About ten more arrived prior to 7:00am. The whole process took about 15 minutes once we were in the store.

    Bye, Bye Sprint!!

    Mine was delivery 5 minutes ago! I tore into the box and soiled my pants. After a change of underwear, I opened the box and held it in my hand. First impression was...WOW! There isnt much excitment that I usually feel for new mobiles that I get since this one is identical to my 3G.

    And I cant get past the activation screen cause I dont have ATT! Where is my Jailbreak!


    I am sure it will be awesome once I play with it and get it past the activation screen! I got the white model and I love it more than my black 3G. White looks sexier!

    Speaking of Invisible Shield...

    Does it have that same problem with getting a CRAP load of dust stuck to the edges? I had mine on for a whopping 2 days before I couldnt stand the fuzz and took it off! 30 bucks wasted.

    That was the problem i had with it on my blackberry... I got a free one back then though, as a friend of mine worked for the firm that brought the company public. I wouldn't get one for the 3GS seeing as how it comes with the coating on the screen... on the back, I'll have a leather cover for it.

    I am currently selling mine. I will be happy if I get $350 for it, but no bites on Ebay yet (it is still locked, since I don't have access to an Apple PC).

    I would say to put it on first. My issue is that I become too lazy and end up using it for a while without a shield. I'm lucky because I never drop or scratch it. Others aren't so lucky and/or careful.

    Thanks for the quick responses. It was too enticing not to set up and play with. I'll set up the Shield overnight in a few days.

    Got to the ATT&T store at 8:30 and was out by 9...only problem at the store was that they could not transfer my contacts after having upgraded my 1st generation Iphone to 3.0 OS..weird but whatever. Ran home and waited thru the restore from backup..that took about 45 minutes. Now I'm running the sync..and then I can finally spend some quality time exploring the phone itself.

    Very happy. Screaming fast... very solid unlike other devices... that CPU and double the ram really improved the device 10 fold.

    And if you are not happy... please post why... just don't vote...

    The Sims was fun the first day, but I haven't really played it since. I actually loaded it a few times today just because watching it load is so much fun... as in, seeing the increase in speed. On my old phone the Sims took a long time, but now... wow. If you want to do a comparison of the two phones for speed, load this game on both. It's worth it just for that... lol...
