At last, after months of reading online blogs and tech news regarding leak iPhone 5 news and 13 days of online reservation plus walk-in to Apple store, I am holding an iPhone 5 now. The sad thing is, I can’t use it yet. As I am on Pay As You Go package, I can’t get a nano sim card for my number. I have to call to Three Mobile customer service and have the nano sim card delivered to me which will take about 3-5 working days. Anyhow, I got one now and that’s another tick on my check list of things to do.
It sounds sad but I kind of organise my life in a way that I have a check list of things to do and one after another, I will be looking forward to get them off my list. I think in life, when you have something to look forward to every day, even a purchase of mobile phone, it kind of makes life more meaningful. But believe me, getting an iPhone 5 is hit and miss. You never know whether or not you will be getting it or not. The reservation starts from 9am to 5pm and you will get a confirmation email only after 5pm to tell you whether or not you will be able to get one the next day. If you read some forums, you will know that the confirmation emails come in certain time; 730pm to 830pm then sometime around 11pm and even 5am the next day. I got mine at 818pm.
Coming back to my check list of things to do, with Apple products, everything is synchronised. I now have a MacBook Air, an iPad 2 and an iPhone 5 and everything that I am doing with either one of the devices, the others will get updated too. So, I can be doing things with my iPhone 5 while at work like adding calendar events or adding things to my check list, my MacBook Air and iPad 2 will get updated by the time I come home. I did mention to one of my friends once that I didn’t like to be ‘monopolised’ by a single brand of product, which in this case, Apple. He had a great answer for me at that time where he said if the product is good, why not.
