    imageiPhone 3G S Launch on Friday; Lines form in New York and Tokyo

    If you thought the hype for Apple's iPhone 3G S would be tempered as compared to the original iPhone and iPhone 3G, then think again as the over-eager iPhone fanboys have already started forming lines outside Apple's flagship store on 5th Avenue in New York and Tokyo to be the...

      So, I had a 3G S preordered but not paid for at my local Apple $tore. Drive by at 7am and there are 50-70 people in line. Decided I there was no way I was going to fall into that insanity. So, cruised by the local AT&T store, walked in and out with a phone in 15 minutes. People really are like cattle....

      Got mine at Yorkdale mall at the Rogers plus store. I think there was a glitch in the system because I got the 3G S for the upgrade price despite owning the orignal 3G last July. I got mine for 299 cad dollars. Was expecting to at the 449 cad early upgrade free. It could be that I'm a valued customer since my cell phone bills are well over 100$ a month. Nevertheless the phone is great. Very fast and responsive. The funny part is that there is no way to tell if the phone is a 3G or a 3G S from the exterior. The back is dentical to the 3G. The only way to tell is the extra compass app or to hold down the home button for voice communication. The video camera does what it does. Nothing special however.

      I got mine at an AT&T store at 8:45am. I walked in, bought the phone. He asked if I wanted him to unbrick it there or I could just take it home and activate it myself through iTunes. I said I'll take it home and do it there. 5 minutes in and out. They weren't busy at all there.

      I agree, there was no line up at mine either. 1 or 2 people. In and out in less than 10 min

      Btw everybody the screen is fingerprint resistant. I have oily hands by nature and I notice a definite resistance to fingerprints in the iPhone 3G S. Not complete risistance but enough not to annoy you or hinder the view.

      iTunes cannot activate my new 3GS, what is wrong?

      okay so this is kinda off topic, but when i upgraded my 3g on wednesday to 3.0 i couldnt find the batter percentage symbol on the status bar or anywhere in the settings app. also notices how when i first upgraded the app store had the "more" button and the redeem option and now it doesnt. so i thought it was just the phone, but now i got my 3gs by ups this morning and it still doesnt have the battery or new app store look. oh i forgot to mention that my 3g was jailbroken and when i upgraded to 3.0 my custom carrier name stayed on and when i restored my 3gs my custom carrier name showed up on there too. i found that strange and funny..

      can someone help me about the battery and app store thing?

      Took a loan and bought the 3G.. Could not resist after seeing there was no line at best buy and ATT store in NY Soho are this morning... 500$ later, hummmm

      By 11 am the att storeat union square was out of 16g, so walked to best buy, no line at either store and first one there at best buy round 11. They were counting their delivery and separating the preorders from the walk inn’s but I told them at the apple web site it reads: there is no guarantee for preorders since phones are sold on first come first serve basis..

      Great phone... there's no lag! Everything happens in real time...

      Perhaps with push notification a new version of undercover will work in the background.
