Hello everyone – I’ve been waiting patiently for my iPhone 5 to show up. Rather than brave (and suffer) running to the Apple Store a few days ago, I preordered one from Apple.com with an estimated delivery of 9/27/12. Well it did arrive a day early which was a nice surprise. . .and it came directly from China via UPS rather than a local USA based Apple distribution center. Apparently shipping these out to individuals via International Shipping was a better choice for them so we could get our devices quickly!
Just for information’s sake, the shipping address originated in ZhengZhou, China.
Well here it is in all of it’s 5th Generation Glory! I opted to go with the black version and I must say that out of the package it’s a very good looking phone. I am worried about the scratches that some people are talking about on the bezel around the screen, but I’m hoping that a Clear-Coat screen protector will help me out with that!
I plugged it into my MacBook Air and like magic (and like the last versions of the iPhone) things started happening with iTunes! Truth be tod, it said to “connect to iTunes” and I had to actually click on my iTunes application in my dock. I would have thought that it would have just opened for me, but not a big deal!
I’m thrilled thus far and look forward to getting some good use in over the next couple of weeks. If I have any further comments about it I’ll post them here!
So while I’m on the topic, we have added the iPhone 5 screen repairs onto our website and as luck would have it (or should I say bad luck), we have already sold a repair to a customer. He had his phone for 1 day, dropped it, and cracked the screen. His phone will be here tomorrow and we’ll fix him up – so just remember that if you have any glass breakage on your new iPhone 5 or if you find that your iPhone 5 has a cracked screen the next time you pull it out of your pocket, Mission Repair wil take care of ya.
Alight then, once I get my Angry Birds app back on my new phone I’ll be complete again 😉
Talk to you soon, Ryan
