The courier service guaranteed the delivery on Friday. Delivering time was set up between 10-12 a.m. – at 11.50 p.m. a smart and funny courier delivered the new iPhone. First of all, I was amazed by this time but at the end I felt glad. Direct Express complied their promise, good job at the end.
Unboxing & Activation
Unboxing took 2 minutes. Turning on the MacBookPro also. After unboxing and connecting iPhone via USB the iTunes-Store needed my new mobile number for registration. Hell. I was checking my data from T-Mobile, the SIM-card they send to me etc… No number. T-Mobile required some time for the new contract & number – it took about 3-4 hours for verification – within the line. If you´ll get the new iPhone, please wait until the service provider activates your mobile. Along the activation process I was setting up my WiFi and tested some apps, prepared my mail accounts etc.
The iPhone is stunning. After some minutes the intuitional GUI convinced me – you need only minutes to understand the system and to cope with your iPhone. You´ll find so many things and functions which will support your usage & workflow …incredible. My first impressions are extremly positive. Since years I´m working with Apple products but the iPhone beats all my further experiences.
