I hate it when a new iPhone comes out

This board gets overrun with:

 

I ordered mine

Has anybody gotten theirs yet?

Order from Apple, AT&T or walk in and get it?"

My order is messed up

I got mine

Being shipped to wrong address

Why do I have to be home and sign for it?

When can I get a new phone?

AT&T is not treating me right by not letting me get a new phone after only a year of my two year contract

 

And similar blather.

 

Who cares if you ordered or didn't, have gotten it, ordered from one or walked in and got it, etc. I sure don't and I bet many others don't either.

I thought I would just quote you instead of writing the same thing you said.
I personally make a point to come here for the release to observe and try to get people to think with their mind instead of their emotions. People are angry and rightly so. But it took me one time getting messed over to realize how to play the game. Now I'm sharing and hopefully next time people will be smarter and they will spread what they have learned. It's the circle of life!

Agree. Many generate their own thread instead of posting to threads that were already established.  Then you get the ignorant responses like "don't visit the forum."

I'm pretty sure the mods can merge threads if they feel they cover the same topic as another. Actually, if you hate a place, the most logical solution would be not to visit that place. Just because you don't agree with the solution doesn't make it 'ignorant' or 'stupid' or any other buzz word that get thrown around in lieu of an argument.

 

But you are entitled to your opinion, just like the rest of us. It's what makes such forums a great place to be.

Maybe if att didnt run things into the ground on launches and total treat their customers like trash you wouldnt hear all the complaining (as you complain).

Re: I hate it when a new iPhone comes out

This is the very reason why I chose to do my homework when I decided to do my first iPhone upgrade. I read LOTS of old and new posts to know it was in my best interest to order directly from Apple! Had to wait a couple of hours after pre-order launch but otherwise everything went perfect! Got my iphone 4s as promised on the 14th and loving it!!

Re: I hate it when a new iPhone comes out

I agree with the OP that we don't need 25 different threads saying the same exact thing! If you want to post your thoughts, opinions or experiences, that's fine but you don't need to post it in multiple threads!

I suspect it'll be closer to 2,500 threads saying the same thing before we're done with this. They all want an answer (when will I get my phone?!?!) that nobody can realistically give them at this point.

Re: I hate it when a new iPhone comes out

Got mine Saturday morning from the apple store. Took 30 minutes total. Activation was easy ,turn the iphone4S on follow the steps on the screen and your done. I never mess with a preorder!! I just go to the source of the product and they had a bunch in stock.

Re: I hate it when a new iPhone comes out

I come here on launches to observe the "hilarity" and "absurdity" of the posters.

Why is it people don't the "SEARCH" function. It is amazing how many will post a question that has been just asked in a post one or two posts previously.

And the posts that say. "i ordered mine at ?:?? time, when do you think it will ship?". Really now. We are all customers here, how the heck would we know where your phone is?

Instant gratification will be the ruin of society!

That, plus we really don't need people posting about their experiences--positive or negative--in nearly each and every one of those threads as well; I mean, how many times do you really need to post (in multiple threads, no less) about how you were able to walk into the Apple store Saturday morning and was able to walk out with a 4s in 30 minutes?  If I didn't know any better, I'd swear some of these folks do so simply to pad their post count...

I get the most entertainment out of these forums during a new iPhone launch.
