So I was walking around the West Towne Mall today with the girlfriend pretty much because we were bored and our air conditioner is from the 70's or earlier. We decided to stop in the Apple store and browse around to kill time since the people in the Sleep Number store told us to move along (I was watching YouTube and floating on the beds as they rose and fell). Once we got in there she started playing Enigmo on one of the display 3G's and I just kinda stood there talking with one of the geniuses and playing with my 1st gen. I went into my settings and turned my WiFi on (I never kept it on because I THOUGHT the WiFi at my house sucked. I joined the Apple Store network and as soon as I exited the settings menu the signal dropped... just like it was doing at my house. I brought it to his attention and he set me up with a Genius Bar appt. for 45 minutes later. When I got up there I told him that it had been doing it at home and I thought it was my Wifi connection. He tried connecting again and "Cannot connect to network" or something like that popped up. He asked if I had ever gotten that message and I told him it had happened there in the store and at home several times. So from there he had me sign a paper and got me a brand new 8 gig 1st gen. I asked if it was a refurb and he assured me it was brand new. Sure enough when he took it out of the white box it had the plastic cover wrapped around. Shweeeet. So basically getting out of the house and NOT spending any money at the mall netted me a brand new sexy 1st gen iPhone. Thanks !!
