I have been having some problems with my iPhone 3G. Nothing big, but it still affected me. Every time I would try to open a application, and the phone would go back to the home screen. This happened on every application I downloaded from the App Store. I sent out a Twitter message, and got a reply from Aaron (@sonictonic on Twitter). He forwarded me to this MacRumors iPhone Story.
On Saturday July 12, 2008, my parents and I went to the Apple Store Burlingame to purchase the new Apple iPhone 3G. We stood in line for about 3 hours, and then another hour in the store to activate the phones.
When all said and done, it was time to formally un-box my new iPhone 3G. I did get the White 16 GB iPhone 3G, instead of the Black 16 GB. I talked to Robert Scoble the night before, and he convinced me to get the White version. My mom did get a 8 GB Black iPhone 3G. I am still teaching her how to use everything, but she is getting the hand of it. Below are videos from walking into the store, and un-boxing our new iPhones!
The date is getting nearer. July 11th, 2008 is the day we are waiting for. I have waited over 1 year for this day, and it is almost here!
I even downloaded a countdown widget for my dashboard with a timer until the iPhone Launch. I think this is one of the coolest widgets someone has ever made!
I recently asked Twitter a question:
I wanted to share some responses to the “tweet,” and then talk about myself.

Personally, I have not fully decided on which version of the iPhone 3G to get, but I would really love to get the 16 GB model in black. I feel that 8 GB is not enough for all the music, video, and all the applications I want to put on my future iPhone. I wish there was a 32 GB version, that was $300.00 USD, but I guess I will have to wait.
I recently spoke with Michael Johnston, Editor-in-Chief of iPhone Alley, and interviewed him via audio chat. Our interview is below:

Once I figure out which model I will be getting, I will update this post. So, leave your comments below, and let us know what model of the iPhone 3G you will be getting!
UPDATE: I will be getting the 16 GB Black Apple iPhone on July 11th, 2008.
