I've noticed that although the release date for the iPhone 4 is today (July 30th) we are still unable to buy them from the apple store even though they are available at almost all the telcos.

anyone got any ideas? Normally when a new product is launched (and was the same with the 3GS), you are able to buy it directly from the apple store immediately.

YES!!! i know...ive been waiting all day for it to come online on the apple store but for some reason they just havent....i think they are trying to hold out becuase of how popular it is going to be and wait until everything dies down to put it up and allow orders!

3 weeks is a long wait... i gave my original iphone to my mum so now i'm phoneless... probably have to get a cheap phone for the mean time :/


QUESTION: where can I get a vodafone micro sim card without going to the apple store (not on their site either)... i don't want to cut up my existing one...

those ones on the website are for ipads only... i called vodafone in brissy and they said they don't have them either, only available in the apple store in chermside... well i guess by the time my iphone has arrived they would have the micro sims on the site... i've gotten cases, screen protectors etc. for my iphone already... gosh it's like couples getting all those baby stuff before it's born haha :)

speaking of cases, when i checked out it didn't say anything about a free bumper??
