iPhone 6 omnibus thread

Recommended Posts

I would be fine if my phone makes it in tomorrow afternoon's shipment instead of today's.  Would work out perfectly for my commute home from work, and I wouldn't have the distraction of a new phone while at the office. 

 

Edit:  Because lets face it.  If I can pick it up tomorrow morning before work, I am going to.  And I won't get nearly enough stuff done that I need to.  :D

 

I would be fine with that as well if I were to receive an answer that was yes, it will be here or no, it will be here or it will be a few weeks.  Not "We have not idea if your phone is coming in this shipment". Heck an answer of  "it is in a warehouse" or "being assembled on the line in China" is a better answer to me.  The order should be traceable regardless, that is all I am saying.

Been using SwiftKey and is pretty cool to use. Just have to get used to it...it has really good word prediction and auto correct though.

 

In fact, I am actually surprised on how well it corrects my spelling errors. I may just make this my permanent keyboard.

How heavy are your ups shipments? Ups just told me I have a shipment (before sprint ) and I did 2 iPhone for life plans on 2 orders. Just curious if they combined them? Or I'm only getting one phone? Thanks

this is how it should be. It says on the website that they will not be combined into one shipment IIRC.

Weird. I remember the site saying it wouldn't happen. Maybe they changed their mind with how many phones ended up being ordered.

I regret going to a Sprint store yesterday during my lunch and preordering. 

 

Now I have to wait for my specific ordered phone to get shipped there, and it looks like it would've been pretty easy to just go in at 6AM and pickup a regular iPhone 6.

 

Oh well..  live and learn.  Maybe I'll tell my wife her's got delayed and activate her phone on my line tomorrow.  :D

 

Edit:  ....or I did just get paid today.  I could go in tomorrow at 6AM and buy one at full price and then just return the unopened one I preordered whenever it comes in.  Hmmm.  The closer it gets, the less I want to wait.

Nothing on Sprints website at all about my order - except the info showing it was ordered.. haha

I wouldnt be surprised if it was 3 weeks.. of course like everyone im hoping its days not weeks.

Maybe I shouldve tried the Apple store- you have that overwhelming feeling that Apple will have its own stores stocked before say Sprint? Might be way off ..

Yes, and they were ordered consecutively (separate orders of course)

I was bored and happened to find this online about UPS/Sprint.

 

http://bcove.me/r8fz841g

i saw a similar video about the UPS / Sprint warehouse near the airport a few months back and was surprised that someone mentioned recently in one of the threads that Sprint uses Fed Ex. I don't think that's true unless they changed distributors or use Fed Ex for certain things. But with a whole UPS warehouse at your disposal why would they use someone else?

      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

      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.
