UK iPhone Stories

Since the iPhone was launched on Friday in the UK I have heard from a number of you on your experiences and I thought that it might be fun if you shared those experiences in purchasing, activating and posing with your new ‘best friend’.

So if you feel so inclined leave a comment below with your experiences and initial impressions…….

    I saw that – but I don’t use any of them. Well gmail sure but via IMAP

    The rest is all ‘fluff’ – not going to make me any more productive or help me on a day to day basis.

    I had no issues myself moving from O2 Biz to iPhone… simply give them the iPhone temp number and the number to be ported! it’s that simple.

    @Mark: Exactly what I did, and thought all was fine until the bill for the old phone arrived!

    Today I received this helpful message from

    Due to the volume of tarnsfer onto iPhone accounts. We can only request
    the transfer of your mobile number from your existing account to your

    further assistance.

    Excellent – when I call that number from my iPhone it tells me I have an online account, to ring the first number I tried yesterday and then disconnects me! Seems I have gone full circle.

    Yesterday, I was in Waitrose department store. They have a decent range of Apple products there, I was next to a couple looking at the MacBook & MacBook pro range. I could tell that they were a bit confused so I asked them what they were looking for. The wife said it was for her. She’d bought an iPhone and wanted a laptop which would give her greater compatibility than her windows machine.

    I thought it was interesting that in the iPhone, Apple has a product which its causing people to switch.

    By the way, I told them to wait a few weeks, and explained Macworld to them.

    the halo effect in full erm, effect :p. Good advice telling them to hold off till macworld I think that new MacBooks are pretty likely more so than an ultra portable.

    Never underestimate the power of the internet. An increasing number of people use the internet
    to search for a business or service so having a web presence is an important media for promoting
    your company. Web design is a real skill and if your website is to not only look good but work well,
    it should be constructed by a professional web designer.
