No silly comments about the cost - I'm so rich I just don't care.

I'm tempted to get a white iphone, but I'm worried I'll look a bit bent. Nothing wrong with that of course, but its not a look I'm going for at the moment.

Also interested in getting it dirty etc - does anyone have a white iphone 3g maybe? any comments?

Yeah.... I drop a tenner and don't even bother to pick it up mate... I'm sure your the same

lol. Just get one! If your too rich and you don't like it after a few days it wont matter anyways!

I'm not sure I like the white back, with a black front though.... maybe I've already answered my question, but still interested if you have a white iphone what you think of it.

a fair point - but that would be wasteful, so I need to buy 1 - black or white. I think I'm gonna go 32gb
#6
Hardly anyone went for the white 3G option, so they're more exlusive I guess.. but just look a bit funny
#7
I'm also rich........ want to start a club?

women feel more secure with bent looking blokes, so its your oppertunity to take advantage...... especially while theyre asleep.

anyway back on topic, i think the white ones look alright, although I might get a case for this one, my 2g one is lookin a little battered and bruised. why not get a black one and then a white cover, then you have no worries.

But yeah you really have to go for the largest capacity, especially if they release things like stored maps for tomtom, that'll want space.

'but I'm worried I'll look a bit bent'

If your sexuality is so tenuous that a white phone could bring the whole facade crashing down, I don't think anything you buy will make that much difference.

Oh yeah don't get me wrong - I've tried the bent look in the past, and brought in a decent haul. It's just not my look at the moment.

Right you are prob right about just getting a white case. I guess the black one holds value better too.

I dunno whether to get the £60 cashback from mobiles.co.uk (which I;ll then throw away because I'm rich), or goto the apple store a week on friday.

hmmmmmm

I did a sweepstake on how long it would take you to respond to that :) Does it make you feel better if I said it was there to produce that exact reaction?

i guess going to the apple store means if its faulty, its an easy fix!

why you bothering about it holding its value, just give it to a poor kid in africa when you decide to get a vertu.

get it a week on friday, from the apple shop then its in your own hands, nothing worse than your waiting for the delivery man looking at your watch only for him to come on route of the days..... thats about 8 hours of valuable iphone fiddling time lost. pluss you'll probably **** your pants because you darnt go to the bog in case he calls and leaves one of those annoying cards saying you have to call in at the depot 24 miles away but leave it 3 hous a week on thursday..... basteards they are

Just buy both, then you could have one for the weekends and one for during the week.

Actually whilst your at it buy all the different colour Nano's then you could change it on a daily basis & still have a few left over to drop & not worry about!

Well buy that one for your boyfriend and a black one for yourself, if you don't like the colour then swap it when you 'hook up' later ;-)

I guess that is, in hindsight, the only option

I sucummed to mobiles.co.uk...... and got a white one :lol:

I cant help but laugh though, you get first months insurance and tech support thrown in (remember to cancel these as soon as your phone arrives) whats funny is the t's and c's of the insurance.

I cant help thing that point number 2 should be a little bit further down the list :lol:

To be covered for theft, remember that you must report it to your network provider within 24 hours of first noticing your phone missing. You must also report any deliberate damage or theft to the police within 48 hours. And, you must get a crime-reference number from the police showing that you have made the report.

- We will not cover your phone or accessories being damaged or stolen if they are left in a public place.
- We will not cover your phone or accessories being damaged or stolen on a boat less than three metres long.
- We will not cover any damage to your phone (or accessories) that happens outside the UK more than 60 days after you left the UK.
- We will not cover your phone or accessories suffering damage or theft if the theft or damage happened due to it being left in a motor vehicle.
- We will not cover your phone or accessories being damaged or stolen as a result of something you or any person using the phone have done or not done to make this more likely to happen.

if your on a boat less than 3meters long your gonna have a pretty good idea who stole it :lol:
#26
Will be interesting to see if anyone gets one delivered on friday from that site. I'd be prepared for a "due to unprecedented levels of orders..." (precedented by the first 2 iphones of course) -type email ;)

:lol: i've just had a text saying that the item is temorarily out of stock and that I should call the sales team :lol:

Just go for the gay look again and get a white phone...not only gay but then also a racist!!!...if you got a "good haul" last time its surely got to be worth it no matter what your straighter mates say! :thumbsup:

an mp3 player, video player and access to the bbc iplayer for when I'm travelling.
live feed for upto date information on my shares.
quick access to traffic information (through an app)
ability to watch youtube videos on demand.

those are the things i need...... then theres a near endless list of things I want.


also V1, been onto customer support, it is an automated message and they will be sent out on Thursday thus garunteed before 1pm on friday.

get the white. It's got a much better resale value.

Also, chances are you will end up putting it in a case anyway, so the back doesn't really matter. As previous posters have said, get the biggest capacity you can afford so when the new ones come out next year you can get the best possible price
