iPhone 6 omnibus thread

Recommended Posts

So is the word around here that the regular iPhone 6's should be in stock at most Sprint stores on Friday even for people without preordering? 

 

I am hoping that I can just walk into a store Friday morning and come out with a 64GB iPhone 6 (silver or gray, I don't care).  All of the stores I called have said they can't guarantee a pre order being there Friday, but they "may" have some additional supply.

I am most intrigued by this focus pixels and how fast these phones focus. It is amazing.

They are going to be in stock. They are going to be in stock. They are going to be in stock. If I say it enough times, it becomes true! Ha. 

 

No, but seriously...I don't think there will be as big as issues with the iPhone 6, especially 64 gb. I still think people are leaning more towards the 16 gb model because of the price point, and most people will never ever use up all 16gb.

iOS 8 for existing devices is now available for download! (yes, technically this is off topic, but who cares this time around)

So finally went into my local corporate store and pre-ordered there. Was a very easy process - none of the issues I had at Sprint.com or with Tele-Sales or with Order Support. Can't figure out why. They also expect I should have my 128GB 4.7-inch Slate Grey on the 19th, even though I just actually got my order in today. 

 

Now, the other issue is I have about $500 in preauthorizations outstanding on two of my cards where Sprint Tele-Sales and Order Support kept either retrying the order or instructing me to do so online. Hopefully these go away! Or, I will have a shizz-ton of iPhones to share. :D

Great!  A newly updated OS for your existing device(s) will solve all of your problems.  iOS 8 will make you younger, healthier, taller, richer, and better looking.

Well, my wife's phone has a tracking number.  I haven't received an email from Sprint yet, and on their order page there still isn't a tracking number, but since I'm signed up for UPS My Choice I happened to log in and see it there for an expected delivery of 9/19.

 

Even if I end up not getting mine on Friday, at least I can play around with her device and compare its RF performance to my N5.

A little jealous of you guys who were able to get the 6p's ordered early and are getting them on the 19th.  I was hopeful my 3-4 week delivery estimate was going to change to 'WE'LL HAVE IT TO YA ON THE 19TH!' but I should have known better.  :P

No update for me at this point.  We will see if it is updated tomorrow. 

 

Question, since I went to a Sprint store and ordered the phone, will the status not change since it is a direct ship to the store?

      iPhone XS and XS Max are Apple's newest flagship phones, and the successors to Apple's 2017 iPhone X. They have the new A12 Bionic chip, improved cameras and faster FaceID, and come in a beautiful Gold Stainless Steel finish in addition to the Silver & Space Gray options. They are available in the same 5.8" Super Retina display as with the X, and the bigger 6.5" Super Retina. They are available in 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB configurations.
      Apple added Dual SIM technology to the 2018 iPhone's, with one physical SIM, and one eSIM. (eSIM feature not currently supported by Sprint, but is said to be coming later). These phones also feature IP68 water-resistance (iPhone X was IP67) which gives you protection in water for up to 30 minutes in up to 2m of water.

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Thursday, January 26, 2012 - 12:01 AM MST
       
      Many of us enjoy the freedom that rooting or jailbreaking our phones gives. Adding custom ROMs, removing “bloatware” or Carrier IQ, and adding additional controls are just the start. We knowingly take the risk that that we may turn our phone into a brick, and our warranty will likely not cover repair or replacement. But will we knowingly commit a criminal act to unlock our phones?
      Apple has claimed that jailbreaking the iPhone was in conflict with copyright laws. Given the amount of time they spent locking down iOS, it’s no surprise they oppose it. In July 2010, the U.S. Copyright Office eventually decided that jailbreaking and rooting was not a violation of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA), as long as it was not done with the intent of circumventing copyright. However, this decision was not permanent. If it is allowed to expire next month, jailbreaking and rooting could be considered breach of the DMCA.
      Development websites like XDA started out with the public perception that they were underground gatherings of hackers and pirates. Since the U.S. Copyright Office published the finding that jailbreaking and rooting was not illegal, those development websites have become widely popular and have largely changed the public's perception. Even Steve Kondik, aka “Cyanogen”, creator of the widely popular Android ROM CyanogenMod was hired by Samsung.
      Due to the liberties that millions of us enjoy about to be removed due to the sunseting DCMA, the Electronic Frontier Foundation has begun a campaign to keep our phones free. They are undertaking a campaign to convince the U.S. Copyright Office that we should have the right to unlock not only our smartphones, but our tablets and video game consoles. They have a petition that they will send to the U.S. Copyright Office, and they are asking for Concrete examples of legal uses of jailbreaking that “will help show the Copyright Office why they should renew and expand the exemptions for jailbreaking.”

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Friday, February 3, 2012 - 2:00 PM MST
       
      The iPhone is something many people see as a status symbol. Many who have never owned one, long for their upgrade date so they can go out and buy the "exclusive" iPhone that they have been denied access to for years. Even some who had the iPhone, and then switched carriers, long to repurchase another. Yes, the iPhone is a well made smartphone with access to a loaded app store, and has many desirable features. But is it really better than Windows Phone, Blackberry or Android models?
      When Apple entered into a contract with AT&T, they remanufactured the RAZR craze and how the artificial scarcity of the device created such huge demand. The RAZR was a good device, and you may argue it was well ahead of other phones at the time of its release, but the other manufacturers caught up quickly. Apple used a similar strategy and it has paid off immensely. The iPhone is now available on the top 3 carriers in the U.S., but is still seen as a status symbol in many circles. As if only a few people have access to it. One could make a strong argument that the Samsung Galaxy SII is a superior smartphone, but still many customers line up to get the iPhone instead, because their inner hoarder says they NEED it, and the products perceived coolness and limited availability only add to the whole experience.
      The concept of artificial scarcity is simple. You take a product that is plentifully available to manufacture in mass, but limit distribution to a limited time, limited area, or in the case of the iPhone, limited retail outlets.
      The strategy has worked perfect for Disney. Why let your movies make the gradual descent to the $3.99 Wal-Mart bargain bin? Just keep "taking them out of the vault" and offering them at full price for a few months every couple years and people pull their credit cards out to pay $17.99 for an 85 year old movie and thank Disney for "allowing" them the opportunity to purchase Snow White. Oh, and you get to be a part of a limited privileged club.
      Another notable example is McDonald's McRib. If it was on the menu full time, many people either wouldn't bother going to McDonalds or would order something else, but artificial scarcity commands us to rush in to McDonalds and get several McRibs at a time because we won't have another chance at it for another year. What do we end up with, besides a belly ache and a reason why we don't normally eat at McDonalds?
      We should be immune to this form of advertising by now, as we are constantly inundated with limited time availability and special edition products all around us. However it is still alive and well here on Planet Earth, because it still works. Big time.
      Can Apple keep the air of exclusivity over its iPhone as it continues to broaden its distribution? Or will smartphone buyers move on to other devices? Only time will tell. But many doubt that Apple will play its hand as well in an era post Steve Jobs.
