Believe it or not, I had to drive back to the Apple Store today to exchange my new iPhone for another.
The phone I originally purchased had something loose in the USB port that brought it out of charge mode with even the slightest movement of the USB cable.
I was the first person to go back to the Apple Store to report an iPhone problem, they told me, so the issue may be a rare occurrence.
The problem is, since I activated the first iPhone, activating this second one is proving to be a major hassle.
After going through the activation process, I got this message: “AT&T is now processing your activation. You will receive an email confirmation once your activation is complete.”
Until then, I can’t use any of the iPhone features. Calling AT&T offers no solace, since they are not committed enough to their customers to keep their support lines open past 9:00 on the date of the iPhone release.
I did get a glimpse of my first iPhone’s interface, and I like what I saw. But there are a few features that could use some improvement. Luckily, most of them can be easily solved with firmware updates.
For a rundown of the iPhone features as well as the flaws, check back tomorrow for my full iPhone review.
Sorry for the delay. It’s a teaser for me, too. I got to play with my iPhone for a good hour, and now I’ve got a new one that I can’t even use!
