3 Things To Do While You Wait To Preorder The iPhone 4
June 15, 2010 by Ryan Ray
Happy “Pre-Order iPhone 4 Day” everyone! Too bad not everyone can pre-order theirs that easily. It appears a lot of servers are down today. Apple’s are struggling, AT&T’s were, perhaps even Radio Shack, & Best Buy had hiccups. People are apparently going nuts for the iPhone 4. I will be picking mine up in store, so I won’t be pre-ordering. I also have to sell my 3GS first, .
I started feeling bad for all of the people that are constantly hitting refresh and flipping out as they can’t get their pre-order in, so I though hmm what would be some good things to distract you while you wait to get through? Here they are in no order, give one a shot before you get back on apple.com and see if you can’t wait out this massive meltdown.
3 – Clean Your Current iPhone
I know this may not apply to everyone, but if you are selling your current iPhone as I am, give it some TLC. It will help you pass the time and perhaps make that bond with your current iPhone that much stronger. The 3GS has been a great phone for me, I’ll be sure to do background checks on whoever she ends up with next…
Start by taking off any case you have on it and wiping the dust from the cracks and ports. Use a microfiber cloth to clean the screen and finish it up..
2 – Take A Walk To Ease The Tension
I know some of you are wearing out your magic mouses going click crazy to see if the server lets your order through yet. Or worse you are venting away in some forum on macrumors.com about how stupid Apple & AT&T are for not seeing this coming, is that irony or not? You want Apple’s new product on AT&T’s service yet hate both the companies…nah not ironic, just chill out for a little bit. Get up from the computer and go take a few laps around the block or the nearest nature trail. It’ll make you forget about those stupid companies and that stupid iPhone 4 that you can’t have, haha.
1 – Go Back To Work
I’m sure a good majority of people are at work secretly trying to pre-order, or maybe you’ve even called in sick today along with everyone else (even the boss) to order the iPhone 4. Sadly you’ve found dead servers everywhere you go and you can’t leave your cubicle until your next 15 minute break to run to the nearest Apple or AT&T store to try and get your pre-order in before they are all gone. Again, just chill out and go back to work. You will be doing everyone across the nation like you a big favor by getting off their servers and letting some other paranoid person order theirs. Then you can order yours in peace knowing you made the world a better place.
Seriously, if your pre-order isn’t making it through just go back to your normal day and try later. The reason no one can get through ever, is because everyone keeps trying haha. You’ll get the precious iPhone 4 some way or another iKnow, let’s just take our time ok? Remember deep breaths, deep breaths.
