iPhone 5

It only took around 3 weeks… but I’ve finally gotten my iPhone 5! 🙂 It’s a late birthday present from my hubby.

We’ve tried to get it every weekend since my birthday. Apple’s extremely silly system for reservations of the phone requires you to send in a reservation on their website between 9 am and 5 pm and then if a phone is available (or they get a shipment at all I suppose) you’ll get an email around 9 pm with information about when to pick it up the day after. If you don’t get an email you have to do the same procedure all over again. Extremely annoying that you can’t reserve in a “normal” way…

After trying for 3 weekends in a row without any success I asked my brother if he could help out. My plan was to reserve in his name and he would go and get it for me if/when available. I hoped reserving during the week would be more successful than during the weekend. And clearly it was… my brother surprised me though because he didn’t tell me he’d gotten the email and when I asked if I should try to reserve for Thursday he said he wouldn’t have time to pick it up then. Suddenly around lunchtime Wednesday I got a photo sent to my phone showing the box. Perfect! My brother has now successfully managed to get three iPhone 5… The first one he purchased for our father on the same day as the iPhone 5 was released (it was a birthday present from all of us), then a week after he got one for himself and now he managed to get mine! Nice work!!


Oh, a big thank you to my brother for helping out and my hubby for the present! 🙂

      Haha, yeah maybe! 🙂 I had a iPhone 4 previously and so far I’m really liking the upgrade. Much better screen both quality and size, and I’m totally liking the fact that it’s so light! I barely notice it when I have it in my pocket! Oh a Dyson, have fun! 😀
