    I'm getting an iPhone in August, it seems so far away! :D

    Did anyone else struggle to cope with waiting?

    10 days is definitely hell. Do you want a card?

    There's a support group, if you need one.

    There's also probably an app for that. :)

    Hmm. I'm pretty sure there are more difficult things in life that are "hell" than waiting on a piece of technology.

    Oh, I know what you mean. Waiting on buying myself a new one too, or considering getting a new MBP.

    I just keep telling myself, "The wait will make the end result oh so much sweeter."

    For now, the good ol' 2G iPhone will do. :D

    This should provide a distraction, until I find the link for that support group:

    Edit: Better?

    I was only able to find a support group for OCD iPhone users (no joke). I'm saving that link for "he who shall not be named," when he's back with us. I think it will really help.


    Oh, and sorry for feeding the troll.

    It's going to be more like mid - late august than August 1st, so it'll be more than 10 days for me :p I'm only on an apprenticeship and my only option is to buy the iPhone on PAYG, so I'm saving for it!

    Me too. Except my story is a lil different. I was there for every iDay and loved my iPhones to death for the past 2 straight years i had one and was uber-excited for the 3GS. I had some money saved in the bank for stuff and i had the $200 i needed for the iPhone already saved up. I was all excited and ready to go but 5 days before launch I had to leave my house for personal reasons and since my iPhone was under a family plan I couldnt keep it. 3 weeks later I am broke (literally i have $1.24 to my name), iPhoneless, jobless and on my own with college coming up in a month:). Its really hard not to put the iPhone at the top of my priority list as soon as i get some money but its going to be a long time without an iPhone for me. :( Im sure my situation in worse than urs ;)

    I'm hoping to get one in August too - I have already spent many a night going through the app store and have listed all the apps I want. I'm now looking for a really nice case - might even push the boat out and go for a vaja.

    I'm rather enjoying the wait, the anticipation. I'm loving reading about how to set things up like my google sync. I definately wouldn't describe it as hell, my bad health fills that particular gap in my life.

    I love to hate the waiting :D It's the best bit of any big purchase! All that googling, posting on forums, reading endless reviews - priceless :D
