iPhone and confirmed Apple Geek/Whore here totally shared how obsessed, I was 2 weeks ago.
Yes, I pre-ordered the iPhone 6 Plus, but even though I pre-ordered, I still was being told my phone would not ship for another 3 – 4 weeks from the release date of last Friday September 19th.
So, what’s a girl (mom) to do, who was patiently (ok maybe I am not the model candidate for patience) waiting for an iPhone 6 Plus to be delivered to her home.
I kept checking (maybe a bit obsessively) from Friday through the weekend to see that my order status would be updated.
I may have even started an iChat with Apple customer service Saturday night to find out more information, where I was pretty much told that it is what it is and until my order ships there is not much to see in the form of updates for me.
Sunday morning, on a lark, I decided to check out Apple’s Website and see if any iPhone 6 Plus phones were available for store pickup.
Lo and behold, my local store had the iPhone 6 Plus Gold 64 GB available same day for pickup. I thought I was dreaming to be quite honest.
Immediately, I started another iChat with Apple Customer Service to be told cancel your pre-order and make sure to contact my carrier to reset my upgrade eligibility for the iPhone 6 Plus.
Check and check!! I, then, re-ordered the iPhone 6 Plus Gold 64 GB for same day pickup.
This was 8:30 give or take in the morning.
Emma had a soccer game at 11:15 and we went to lunch with the kids while I patiently (there is that word again!) for another e-mail to let me know that the iPhone 6 Plus was ready for pickup.
I worked on a blog post when I got back and right around 4 pm, I FINALLY got the e-mail I was waiting for – I could pick up the iPhone 6 Plus!
Asked my brother to come with me for company (and the photos below were taken by him from his Samsung Galaxy while he waited outside the store for me – so sorry if they were a bit blurry), while Kevin took care of the girls.
When I got there, I had to stand on a pre-order/pickup line for almost an hour before I was let into the Apple Store.
From there, I was brought over to an open (as open as you can get in craziness) Apple table to have my phone checked in and set up.Sorry the photo is blurry – my brother took this with his Samsung Galaxy while waiting for me outside the store.
But finally at 6 pm on Sunday night, I walked out of the Apple Store with my new precious (the Apple 6 Plus Gold 64 GB).
By the way, I have the iPhone, but you may be wondering about a case for it. Well fear not, I have an special treat for all my readers and iPhone 6 lovers, too with a review and giveaway coming up from the amazing mobile device online custom case store – CASETIFY – so stay tuned in the next few days for this now!Here is my precious…(a screenshot!)
