Re: iPhone 4S delivery dates

well apparently not all are facing this issue..

good news is that apple has already issued statement that few of 4s users are facing this issue and that it should be resolved with s/w update.

http://www.macrumors.com/2011/11/02/...update-coming/

they have already released 5.1 beta to developers.. hopefully the fix shall be released in few weeks..

Re: iPhone 4S delivery dates

This morning I received my AppleCare Protection Plan Certificate via email from Apple, valid until Nov. 4, 2013.

Now if only they'd send me the conformation email which states that my new iPhone is on its way and that I should have it in my hands any day now..!

The clock is ticking...

Completely drained it and have charged it full today morning.. using it time to time on wifi lets see how does the day passes .. will report!!

Received the new iPhone 4S yesterday but had to get a smaller SIM card for it. Activation was suppose to be in less than an hour but after 24hrs it still wasn't activated so I went back to Swisscom today and got it worked out. Problem was the sales rep didn't realize that I have 2 phones with identical SIM cards (same number) so Swisscom central didn't know which one they were suppose to deactivate. Oh well.

Re: iPhone 4S delivery dates

Well, here's my sad iPhone 4s story.

I ordered an iPhone 4s on Friday 21.10.2011. I got the confirmation EMail the same day, with a delivery date of 01.11.2011.

On the 28.10.2011 I got an EMail stating that my iPhone has been sent (past tense here) and will be with me in the next two working days. Great! On the Tuesday (01.11) - no iPhone: so I contacted Swisscom and asked where it was, and they said it would be with me on Thursday or Friday (03.11 or 04.11). OK, two days late. I have already got my SIM card and the bill for the iPhone.

On Thursday 03.11, I spoke with them again (by Twitter) and they sent me the tracking number for the Post. Yoo-hoo! So, I had a look, but for some stupid reason they had sent the iPhone to my OLD address !! I moved house TWO YEARS ago - and I also changed my address with them when I moved! But, they still managed to send the SIM card and bill to my actual address..

I phoned Swisscom immediately, and they said - 'Don't worry, it will come back to us and we will send it again to your actual address.' They could not explain at all why they sent the iPhone to my old address and the SIM card and bill to my current address...

Today (09.11), I have still no iPhone. So, I spoke to them again at lunchtime and they told me that the iPhone was actually sent back to them by the post (due to the wrong address). But, instead of re-sending it to my correct address (which they promised they would do), they decided to cancel my order, which means my iPhone was then sent to another waiting customer! Because of this, they have had to order another iPhone for me - but this will take SIX WEEKS... If I am lucky (according to Swisscom) I might have it in three weeks.

His only suggestion was to write an official complaint letter to Swisscom, which I will do.

Incredible, what a total disaster. But I think there is nothing I can do to change anything

Cheers - from a Very Unhappy Customer - even more so, because someone out there is smiling very happily because they now have MY iPhone.

Chris

I installed iOS 5.01 about an hour ago. Unfortunately, that hasn't fixed the battery issue - battery went down 4 percent in the last 10 minutes alone. I'll let it completely drain and fully recharge, perhaps that shocks it back into rhythm

Yeah, looks more and more like it. The weird thing was tha two days ago I let it drain totally and fully recharged it. Yesterday, the battery was at 75% after a full day's use. Today, however, it was back to rapid draining mode. I guess I'll really have to get it exchanged. Didn't go through with the exchange last week because had announced the battery fix the day before

Re: iPhone 4S delivery dates

What iPhones really cost: We reveal, piece by piece, what it actually cost Apple to make the 4S



Just saved up for a new £499 iPhone 4S? Then look away now...

The touchscreen and display unit of Apple's iPhone 4S cost £23




It might have underwhelmed the devotees, but sales of Apple’s iPhone 4S topped four million in just three days following last month’s launch, and it’s still the must-have smartphone this winter. Of course, those sleek looks don’t come cheap. Or do they..?

Out of contract, the iPhone 4S will cost you £499, but we can reveal that the nuts, bolts and high-end circuitry inside cost far less – see below for the total.

Expert analysts from technology firm iSuppli have prised open the pristine casing and totted up the cost of each component.

Some are reassuringly expensive – the touchscreen and display unit cost £23 – but others are less confidence-inspiring.

Next time you’re cursing the battery life, remember it’s only worth £3.68.

Just ordered via orange online (as an existing customer) and have a delivery date in 2 weeks.
I got an SMS from Orange yesterday that it had been dispatched from the warehouse. The Postman tried to delivered it today while I was out, so will head to the post office tomorrow morning to pick it up. It was just over the 2 weeks estimated when I ordered it, but close enough

16GB Black.

Been playing since yesterday evening. The Battery is crap - it is no where near the 200 hours standby claimed on the Orange website. When from 100% before I went to bed to 65% this morning. (and yes I did turn all location stuff off and siri and push email and all the other "normal" battery drains).
