So for about a year I have been waiting for my upgrade on my phone. I had the HTC Evo. What phone did I want to get you ask. Well, I wanted to get the iPhone 4s. I’m with sprint and they didn’t have the iPhone until about two months after I got my Evo. Of course I had to wait to upgrade.
Well my aunt wanted to get new phones so I went with her to the sprint store. I was playing with the iPhone 4s. I was really liking it. Well my upgrade wasn’t until October 1st. I was talking to sprint lady and she told me that the 5 was coming out end oct/early nov. well then I get word that iPhone 5 was coming out the end of September. Prefect right in time of my upgrade. But it was still 2 weeks after they came out. As I predicted, they were sold out.
Well yesterday I called some stores to see if they possibly have any in stock. Of course all said no, but I can go in and purchase a $50 gift card to put my name on the list.
It was a very ugly unexpected rainy day. We don’t get much rain here, so I’m grateful, but almost anything wasn’t going to stop me from putting my name on that list. I took my friend and her kids with me. Since it was barely raining at the time, my friend decided to stay in the car with her kids. (She was charging her phone) Anyways, I go inside and there is a 30 minute wait. I was like great just to put my name in the list. As I turn around the doors to the store fly open and it was really windy and really hard rain. It was moving the parked cars a little, and I can barley see cars on the highway stop for lack of sight. The workers locked the doors. Then you hear the hail starting to come down. The lights in the store flickered before finally shutting off. This went on (the heavy wind, rain, hail, and power outage) lasted a good 5 minutes. Of course it felt like forever. The whole time I was thinking of my friend and her kids in the car. As soon as it started it ended just as quick.
Since the power was out and finally came back on it was going to take 10-15 minutes to bring all computers up. I told sprint lady that I was going to check on my friend and her kids and that I might be coming back tomorrow. She said ok, but if you come back in your place will be saved. I went out to the car and was going to leave because it was going to be a long while before I was to get seen. My friend was like no lets just go inside. So we go inside and I still had my place in line.
As I was waiting I went to check out the iPhone 5 display. I feel in love with it. It was told to me before that the wait time for the phone was 3+ weeks. Finally my name was called. They guy asked what I was needing. I told him that I wanted to buy the $50 gift card to put my name on the list. He said what size and color did you want. I said I want the black 32gb. He smiles and says I think we have one more left. He goes and checks and he comes back with the last box they had. OMFG!!!! Are you serious. I nearly fainted. I was shocked and happy at the same time.
Well, I had half the money in my account. The rest was at home. Thank god my husband was off yesterday. He went to go drop off the money to me. I kept saying ‘thank you poor people who couldn’t get the 32gb’ hehe :0) The whole time the guy was doing his thing, I was like no this cant be true. (Even though I saw it right in front of me.)
So as I was already preparing myself that I will be waiting 3+ weeks to receive my phone. I went home with my black 32gb black iPhone 5 and two accessories. (I can’t go without a case or screen protector.)
You can say I was a very very very happy camper. I was an android user, and iPhones are different, but so far so good. I love it!!!
I wrote this post with my new phone. So if there are any typos, I’m really sorry.
Thanks for reading!! JSH :0)
