Okay…I know I'm probably pushing the tolerance limits of my regular readers…but I'm just so damn tickled to *finally* be getting an iPhone that I can't think about much of anything else, so how can I possibly be expected to blog about anything else?!
Barring any unforeseen circumstances, my new baby will be delivered on Friday. And I'm feeling pretty confident about this because I called 3 yesterday to double-check. Actually, I called because my favorite Alpha Geek, who is also getting a new iPhone 3GS from 3, had spoken to a customer service rep earlier in the day and got his customer ID number. Given that I have absolutely nothing to show that I actually have an iPhone on order with them…I really liked the the idea of securing my own customer ID number.
Turns out it was a good thing I called, because when the rep I spoke to plugged my Swedish ID number into his database, his information indicated I had ordered TWO 32 Gig White iPhones. The rep cancelled the 2nd device for me, and I also took the opportunity to ask once again if it would be possible to get an SMS notification when the iPhone is delivered to the postal kiosk at the grocery store. Still no dice. So I still have to call back on Friday morning to get the delivery info…but at least I have my customer ID number now.
In semi-related news, I've also received a receipt from the US iTunes Store for the apps I purchased over the weekend. Hopefully I'll be able to use it for some sort of credit if it turns out I have to re-purchase the apps in the Swedish iTunes store in order for them to work on my Swedish iPhone…because I'm such a renegade.
