I know, arrrgh its so lame to post Iphone 4 post since its like over a decade people talking about it. No matter how lame it was, I think the story of mine would be a different scene out of others.
Before the launching of Iphone 4, everyone was guessing over the actual price of the device. Debating over the telcos of who is going to have the cheapest Iphone 4 deal and doing all kind of research of the pros and cons of the I4.
And of course, I’m part of the above mentioned.
Option to Choose:
1. To get a set from Singapore at SGD888, estimated RM2100 after converted.
2. To get it from local telco but to tie up with the 24 MONTHSsssss contracts.
It ended up we got 1 from Singapore for 16gb through my brother and sent it back to Miri.
Foxconn China – Singapore – Johor Bahru – Kuching – Sibu – MIRI !!!
It was so much hassle that the phone has to go from Foxconn Shenzhen China, reaching Sg Home address by DHL. Then, my cousin to bring it out of SG and check in to Johor Airport and flew to Kuching. From Kuching again it flew to Sibu and finally pass over to my hand. And then finally it followed me on the road trip and safely arrive Miri.
The unboxing process of Iphone 4. All sealed up and I’m the one who officiate it! Woohoo..
It looks so charming rite?
This is my 2nd Apple product of my life, and I bet coming there could be more since I’m so so addicted to it.
So we got 1 set only, who is going to OWN this 1 set? The husband or The wife?
We didn’t plan to have 2, its gonna be a big wasting spending over RM4000 for 2 iphones. Thats ridiculous!! We fight over this, arguing who should be having it. He got his says I got my say.
God was watching us and gave us a punishment for being so IDIOT to argue over an Iphone 4. The Iphone 4 could not function properly due to the Micro Sim and 2 of the noob can only watch the EMERGENCY CALL screen instead of trying out the apps. That was really NOT FUN at all… Fight la, end up both also can’t own it.
The Iphone 4 was safely following me in the box from Sibu to Miri again and finally ACTIVATED through a valid Micro Sim. I warn you, if you are buying a set from the outsource, its better you ask them to activate for you first. At least, for the 1st time user, you wont get so stress up looking for a Mirco Sim cutter!!
Iphone 4 was officially ACTIVATED and I lost the battle with Alex.
I was thinking to have a second hand I phone 3gs instead. Its been selling in the market for around RM 1000 ++. Quite attractive deal, somehow I think I prefer the I4. He looks so much gorgeous and handsome. I looks so much pretty and elegant holding him. I ended up heading to Maxis office and get the 32gb deal at RM1390. You must be thinking, I’m insane. I use my dad’s account and upgraded his plan purposely for this Iphone 4. The lightning must have been strike on my hair!
It sounds like almost the end of the story.
No, its just 70% of the story.
Now we both are Iphone 4 user.
I have my 32gb from Maxis and He got his 16gb from SG.
Another deal is here.
Alex offer to pay RM2100 for the 32gb and while I only have to pay RM1390 for the 16gb. Fuiyo, this two people ah! Why so calculative!? Of course, I let him win again la… Since I don’t need a 32gb and I am definitely happy to pay less. Hehehe. 80% of the story.
Day 1 of using Iphone 4 – 80%
Both of us were so excited figure out the apps, syncing the phone and giving the baby a protective cover!
Putting on fav/ve portage ’s screen protector. Very good quality!
The screen protector covers the back too! Although they say it wont scratch as it was made of glass, but better be safe than Sorry lo!
We got some accessories for the phone, such as the silicon and incase cover.
Day 2 of using Iphone 4 – 85%
32gb fell sick.
High fever and could not function for a few minutes. But it was OK after that.
A lot of friends were asking over this picture in facebook of why would this happen, as it was such a new phone. Everyone start getting nervous as they worry their phone will be like tat too.
Day 4 of using Iphone 4 – 90%
Alex was worry about his baby, and after the advise from friends he decided to send it back to Maxis for a quarantine check.
Day 6 of using Iphone 4 – 95%
The Maxis officer in Miri was not that helpful, although they say the technician will be here the next day but we did not get any feedback until the next 2 days. The baby was quarantine at Maxis center for 3 days. Then we finally receive a call. The technician says the phone was ok. He advise us to use the phone again, if the problem persist only then they will make a one to one exchange WHICH they need to send it to KL and then wait for 1 week then it will send a new set back to MIRI.
Wah…. its finally reaching 99 % of the story..
