I never thought I would get an iPhone for any reason at all.. But that changed when I got it for free! Thanks to New Zealand Natural for choosing me as the grand prize winner in their Freeze Frame photo contest just about a month ago!
And yes, I did win the 1 year worth of ice cream as well! Hehehehe *grin*
However, I gotta get it from Maxis thanks to their policy and etc, so I had to wait about 3 weeks for this. And judging from other people’s responses, I was expecting to receive it around or after my birthday.
But thanks to some twitter intervention, I got it yesterday (sunday)! Hehehe. Twitter powah.
I’ve downloaded all the apps I wanted and those few apps that were going for free during Black Friday even before I got my iPhone. Talking about anticipation! Heh. Now it’s already flooded with free apps.
Not Jailbroken yet, gonna enjoy using this as is for a few days, before jumping to the JailBroken train.
Don’t need to show you how the iPhone looks like because you can always spy on your friend’s one. Instead I’ll show you my iPhone cover! I got it on the day I got my phone as well. Heh.
Cunnest RM79 thing, and it’s quite cheap compared to most good silicon covers out there too. Super solid and feels rigid. Throw to dog, dog can die okay! And still look cool after that.
But the screen protector sucks. Smudgy and there’s bubbles forming at the sides because of manufacturer defects. But it’s still usable so I’ll continue using it till it kaputs.
Schmae’s still-in-wish-list iPhone cover is also cooool, something which I was originally looking for but couldn’t find something like that yesterday. I really wanted to get something to cover the iPhone before I start trashing it around, so I got that beauty above. Heh.
There was an alternative which I considered, but it was too bulky. But that one, throw at car, car break in two! Fuah!
How does it feel to use an iPhone? Erm in the beginning, i can’t type without looking at the qwerty keyboard, but thank god for the auto correct feature. BUT the auto correct feature is also annoying when it comes to Manglish. It always changes my ‘helo’ to ‘help’ as well!
The battery. At 11AM it was at 80%. At 5PM it was at 10%. GOSH. I got myself a car charger as well, but somehow it couldn’t charge the phone, but it works perfectly fine on Earl’s. Weird. Gonna get it change as soon as I get the time.
Anyways! Big thanks to NZN for the iPhone! Bigger thanks to aaalllll the people who voted for me for the 1 year supply of ice cream and a shot at the iPhone!
Oh, guess what’s the first picture I took with my iPhone?
