    Who Queued to get an Iphone 4 and Didn't get one ?

    I Queued from 5am outside my local 02 and was 1st inline and they only had 8 32gb ones.

    Orange next door only had 1 32gb and 2 16gb and those were taken by the 1st 2 people in that queue.

    Phones4u said they had several but no one seemed to like them very much and no one left the 02 queue to go over there.

    Agreed.

    Absolutely mental behaviour. :lol:

    You queued to get a phone? The word sheep springs to mind. Do you answer emails from African Ambassadors who need somewhere to store their fortunes as well? Jeez man get a life. What is it with our culture that we have to have things now. Not next week, not the next time I'm passing the shop but "let's get up in the middle of the night to queue to get an f-ing phone". Then not only that but to boast about it online like it's a great thing you've done that we should all applaud you for. If you'd got up at 4am to go and help out in a local charity the fair dos but this????
    Sorry everybody rant over.

    If people want to do something like queue for a piece of tech, why is it deserving of a rant from a stranger?

    I personally probably wouldn't do it, but I wouldn't begrudge someone else doing it if they got a bit of happiness from it.

    What type of loser rants on the internet when the weather's nice - you, I and a few others. But we still do.

    Just chillax.:thumbsup:

    Sorry if i offended anyone, it's this must have mentality that really annoys me.
    Who cares what type of phone someone has or what car they drive and why get strangers admiration for it?
    Sorry just don't get.
    Obviously just me.

    No hate - just extreme jealousy.

    pure madness. I've never understood why people will queue all night for a new product, would it kill you so much to wait another week/month for it? I love my gadgets but why do some people put so much priority on inanimate objects? And vibeone, I've heard you repeat that in quite a few threads but it might be a shock to you but not everyone wants one and aren't as obsessed as you are. I'm sure most of us on here could afford one if we really wanted one so don't insult us with your childish comments. Act your age, not your iphone model number.

    I never saw the appeal of the iphone 4

    At the demo all they showed was video calling, amazing new technology that will change the world had the apple fanboys clapping, a slight better picture which you really will not notice unless you compare the two and a phone that you have to place on a table to get any signal. It doesn't even look nice. I prefer the 3G/S design + the 3gs opens apps faster.

    Fair point. i don't prefer the design btw, but apart from that you are probably not that off the mark.

    Contrary to popular belief, I'm happy to accept other peoples opinions. But there is a difference between posts like rymans, and posts from jealous idiots.

    alie brah

    I havent actually seen it in real life yet but it looks a little square and quite a bit bigger, I may be wrong . imo the price is way too high for what it offer. It's slower ( excluding internet ) and double the price. I wonder who these mugs who queue all night are (inb4 vb1 was one of them :-D ) . I would buy the phone if it wasnt so extortionately high priced, but would never queue for a phone no matter how amazing it was especially one that has and was inevitably going to have issues.

    If people want to queue for the phone, go ahead and let them, it will give us lolz

    +1 £300 range is the most i'd pay for it. I'd rather buy a decent laptop and keep my current iphone which does almost everything iphone 4 does anyway except for video calling which i'd never use.

    What makes you think its slower?

    BTW, I preordered and had it delivered :P I'm a nob, but not a total nob

    You are happy to accept other peoples opinions if they are the same views as yours it seems. I couldn't give 2 hoots if you bought 10 apple macs but how you go about insulting people with your childish 'humor' is pathetic and to call people jealous idiots because you can get your head round that some people don't like the iphone or apple products is frankly pathetic. Never once did anyone diss apple or the iphone but stated how they couldnt understand why anyone would queue in the early hours and not wait just a few days longer but you choose to insult and be rude. Btw, because I'm replying to you isn't because you're the ' famous' vb1 but you chose to make it personal so I am just expressing my opinion.

    P.s. Posting 20,000 comments on misk does not make you a legend (as quoted by you) but just proves you have no life outside of the internet and the comfort of your shiny gadgets.

    Agreed :lol:

    Videos have shown comparisons between the 3G and 4G and the 4G is noticeably slower at opening apps and performing tasks such as taking a photo or changing the settings etc... The only thing that it was better at was browsing the internet but it seems even that could be a problem with the handset now.
    It depends what you use it for I guess, as long as you can make an excuse you can use it for work then you should be pretty low on the nob scale.
