Truth to be told... I have never imagined to buy (or some might call it upgrade) iPhone4 after using iPhone 3GS for slightly more than a year! Prior to the iPhone, I had been using Nokia phone most of my life (of course, from the date I started to use mobile phone). Having friends who are iPhone fanatics aren't helping much either. Most of their conversations revolve around Apple's phenomenon that has got a lot of people around the world to contact this so-called iPhone-fever.
For me, I bought iPhone for few reasons;
1) LOOK - I think most of you will agree if I say that iPhone is gorgeous.. well, except for those diehard Blackberry users who stick by their belief
2) Functions - good picture quality (let's not compare to digicam or DSLR ok?), smooth flowing graphic (bye bye Nokia), sensitive touch screen that I absolutely adore and lots more
3) Apps - hundreds or perhaps thousands of applications that are made available for iPhone! You have seen the ads, you know the drill :)
Then my brothers and sisters and some other friends started to poison me with their Blackberry... I almost bought one unit but in the end, after a teh tarik session with my ex-colleague who has been using iPhone since day One.. it didn't take much persuasion to make me believe in iPhone once again! Went to Maxis TTDI one Thursday to enquire about the availability... guess what! They still have some stocks.. registered my name, waited for more than 2 hours before finally getting my latest gadget! You have no idea on how crazy those people are... I have seen one guy buying 4 units of iPhone4 for his family (he just sat next to me).
So here I am... using a new iPhone4! My wife who had ordered Blackberry Bold for me as secret present (my birthday was yesterday by the way) had to cancel the order and offered to buy me accessories instead... and hence the silicon casing which is useful as my Sher Ryn loves to throw my iPhone. Now I only have anti-glare screen protector to buy hopefully by this weekend!
I have a confession to make - I have actually JAILBREAK-ed the iPhone on the same day that I got it! my friend helped me to do it in less than 10 minutes! I couldn't believe my eyes to see how simple it could be. Hopefully Patrick, one of my best friends who happen to be Apple's Sales Manager, didn't read this!! LOL!
But on the other side, I can now download a lot of applications that I have not been able to buy in the past... starting with Papago M7 GPS (USD20), Street Fighter (USD7), Documents to Go (USD17), and other exciting apps waiting for me to explore :P
anyone on iPhone4 as well???
