Satanic_Hamster: Apple users; this is why we make fun of you. This. It's not the stats / technical capabilities of your phones. It's THIS RIGHT HERE.
Marcus Aurelius: I wanted to enrich the experience of opening my own iPhone 5, and make it more special than it already would beI'm pretty sure there are good medications on the market for this problem.
Enemabag Jones: There are many reasons not to choose Apple products as part of my own personal opinion.Self-important douche's like that are the best reason to hate apple products.
StingerJ: Opening a RealDoll isn't a religious experience. Using a RealDoll isn't even a religious experience. I have a RealDoll and enjoy it immensely, but people like this guy make me embarrassed to use it in public.
swaxhog: itsdan: Last year when I upgraded to the 4S I preordered it online, it was delivered to my house on release day, and was there when I got home. I followed the simple instructions to backup my old phone and activate my new one, and I was done.Why the hell do people go to a store on release day?Because this year, the online store sold out in minutes and then had 3-5 weeks delivery dates. So in a twist, on Friday most stores had piles of them in stock and all the people who pre-ordered where gnashing their teeth because their phone was still on a boat from China and the store wouldn't let them cancel their pre-order and buy in store.
LouDobbsAwaaaay: However, I now have a new sense of sympathy toward the everyday guy who has the utter misfortune of having a job at an Apple store. Jesus tap-dancing Christ on a cracker. I'd get fired in the first 15 minutes after punching one of these pinch-faced children.
Mister Peejay: spartphone
inflatedKarma: if he is this excited about opening his iPhone, imagine how giddy he will be the first time he has sex.
roflmaonow: Actually from what I remember when I got my iphone 4 from the AT&T store a couple of years ago the hot latino lady opened the box for me and made sure it was activated and ready to go. Of course I didn't mind since she put out and I wasn't concentrating on the box so much.

Barricaded Gunman: Sleazy_as_Pie: By the way, if you tell me to swap it for an unopened one, you'll be told, in the most polite, tactful, friendly way possible, to fark right off... I'm not taking the heat from corporate for replacing a perfectly good device (especially one with demand this high) just because you wanted to tear your own shrink wrap, crybaby.Then we'll take it up with your $11 an hour boss, tough guy. Congratulations on being the only person in this thread to come across as more of a dick than the dick the article was about.
roflmaonow: Is this the biatching thread for the map apps on iOS6? God is it truly bad.

Nem Wan: The iPhone is not made whole and perfect by assembling its atoms to match a Star Trek replicator pattern. It's made of lots of parts assembled by hand. If you ever need service it's likely Apple could give you a refurbished unit (with new screen, enclosure, and battery) as the replacement. You may find this frustrating if you are particular about more than it being the right model, looking good, and working.
I_Am_Weasel: So, I assume, this is what is called a first world problem?
Sleazy_as_Pie: By the way, if you tell me to swap it for an unopened one, you'll be told, in the most polite, tactful, friendly way possible, to fark right off.
Nicholas D. Wolfwood: ... and this, my friends, is why I refuse to touch anything Apple. The technology is OK, but the lawyers and users are complete wastes of oxygen.
Sleazy_as_Pie: Sprint employee here...You know why we open the boxes for you? Because the average customer (particularly the average Sprint customer) is too stupid to activate the device themselves, and will come back more pissed off about it not working than you are because "WAAAA they opened it!" Not to mention the fact that if you don't unbrick and activate it properly, the data connection won't work unless we factory reset it (after taking additional time to back up the device to iTunes since you're too goddamn stupid to work a computer).By the way, if you tell me to swap it for an unopened one, you'll be told, in the most polite, tactful, friendly way possible, to fark right off. Once they've been added to the account, they're used. Whether we open the box or not, that phone cannot be resold to another customer. I'm not taking the heat from corporate for replacing a perfectly good device (especially one with demand this high) just because you wanted to tear your own shrink wrap, crybaby.
