Ummm... no it's not. Order my 4 from ATT through the upgrade about 10 days ago... it was to be delivered today. It was "delivered"... where I have no idea... but it wasn't as my house, or the neighbors house.

So now I've started a trace to find it... and if it's lost ATT can send me a new one... oh... that is when I come back up in the queue probably 2 weeks at least. Awesome...

This is two times in the last couple months an overnight delivery has been "delivered." Last time it was fortunately at the neighbors and they were nice enough to bring it over later that night. Went over and asked them this time... no joy.

I heard that andriod phones deliver themselves....so maybe you should have bought a better phone?

Indeedy. I am fully prepared to suck it up and wait the 2 weeks for another... I just dislike like the not knowing right now. And I FULLY expect 24 hours to roll by without an actual phone call, pushing that 2 weeks even further.

After a few minutes, the music hadn't come back on....uh-oh. I opened the bag and my phone was sitting in a little puddle of water inside the bag. Crap. I tried to dry it out overnight, gently warm oven + rice, and no-go. The apple logo came on, the screen was all moist underneath, but it would never turn on, or charge, or anything. Unfortunately, my impatience then got the best of me, and I opened it up. From age or water or whatever, one of the cables just delaminated when I try to remove it, so buh-bye. iPhone4, here I come. All for the best, my wife's 3G had long since accumulated problems with her headphone jack (barely works) and vibration motor (dead). So, Mr. Jobs gets another chunk of my hard-earned cash....

My local Apple store had none in stock, so we reserved. Any idea how quickly stores are getting shipments? Am I looking at a day, three, two weeks, etc...??
so what you're saying is your wife broke her vibrator?


daaaaaaaaayyum!!!!

(My apple collection will be down to iPhone 3G, MacBook, iPad, iPod... so sad)

That game is great. Great graphics, sound effects and execution. Plus, you can play for 30 seconds or 10 minutes.

Well add my iPhone 4 to the list of phones with issues. As of yesterday battery life dropped to 5 hours standby time or less before I'm at the red with 20% battery life left. I'm not using the iPhone as I have a iPad to play with so it's not heavy use that's killing the battery. Nothing running in the background either.
10:40 am appt tomorrow at the Apple store to see a genius. Fun;(

PLEASE, if you use the camera on the phone, make sure you check out the X's camera before buying. For me, it was a little slow.

Update: Went to the Apple store at Montgomery Mall today. Employees were very helpful. Dude who helped me with my problem plugged my iPhone into a Mac laptop and ran a diagnostics. Come to find out the battery issue was caused partially by me. The phone had logged two instances of temp warnings.
Last week I had left my phone in the car all day when it was well over 100 degrees outside. Didn't help that it was enclosed in a black protective case. This caused the internal temp of the phone to go to sky high and basically cooked the battery.
Store employee explained I should not leave the phone in the car with extreme temps and replaced my borked phone with a new one on the spot.
I picked up the AppleCare warranty on the phone and went straight out to the clear shield kiosk in front of the Apple store and had a warranty replacement of the front/back clear shield done on the new phone.
Over all I'm extremely happy with the phone and with Apples response to my situation.

finally got mine last night. . .loving the new resolution on this screen (watching a DVD rip of Avatar, wow!)

Though for some reason AT&T decided to not activate my MMS (they did set my wife's up though) I'm sure a Droid would have been perfect, with ultra cool 3D messaging and stuff.

We went to the local Best Buy and picked up some cases and screenprotectors. The pickings were slim to say the least. We both got the Zagg Invisishield on the fronts only.

She got a blue Rocketfish case for hers

http://mcdevzone.com/2010/06/26/rock...-the-iphone-4/

I ended up going with the Griffin Elan Passport walletcase and almost immedietly after getting in the car and trying to text with it realized that I'm taking it back tonight. I had a few spare singles in my wallet, so I put them in it and closing it with cash in there is a nightmare. It's just not a great case/wallet. It would be OK if you were going on vacation and didn't need a full wallet Using icons or texting anything near the edge is impossible, it could be my stubby fingers or the design, either way, it's going back.

I'll be replacing it with my 2nd choice that they had, a Frogz LuxeLean case. It was velvety smooth and lightweight.

It has the most advanced 3D chip of any Android handset, but the few 3D games that are written for Android are optimized for the lesser Adreno chipset found in almost every other model running Android. That being said, it should run those games very fast.

have that lean case, I like it better than the bumper.

Anyone want to buy a barely used black bumper? Hole has been enlarged to allow for other headphones.

I have that case and don't like it. The phone gets dirty ovals from the vent holes and the backside always looks greasy.

Really? The pickings were slim @ Best Buy. The Apple store only had the bands. The local AT&T stores didn't have ANYTHING either, so we had to choose one of the ones @ BB.

That's the best of the ones they have, for now. I get 45 days (well, 44 now) to exchange the case, so I'll go back in about a month and see if they got anything else in stock.
