I love my new iPhone so far, but I have to admit, it has been a challenging first few days! First, I couldn't activate my phone through iTunes (the suggested method), so I had to call customer service ALREADY and have them walk me through activating manually. Then, I couldn't transfer my contacts. The VZ Contact Transfer app didn't work with wifi on and the only reason I figured that out was by reading a support forum where people had the same issue. Even after turning off wifi, it wouldn't work. So I had to delete the app and start over from the beginning. This worked and now, after two days of trying, I have all of my contacts! Hooray!
Now I can't figure out how to send email from any email account besides my work one. Which is strange because I receive email from yahoo and gmail just fine. The battery life on this baby is sucked dry pretty quickly but that's probably because I was trying the VZ Transfer app over and over and over and it would just sit there and try to do its thing for 10 minutes at a time. Then of course setting up the many phone and screen settings ate up quite a bit of juice. I am hoping that after I get everything set, the battery will last a lot longer.
Other than those few small setup issues, I am pretty happy. The touch screen is amazing and reacts to my finger much better than my LG Dare did. The keyboard is a bit tricky but I am starting to getting used to it. I love getting facebook and email notifications right on my phone. I love the quick weather forecast and the convenience of having my work Outlook calendar synced right on my phone. My favorite part is the IPOD!!! I have been using my Mini for a loooong time now and oh boy has the ipod changed!!! So colorful! :)
I consider myself somewhat technically savvy, but this technology has hit me like a ton of bricks. I have always been in the stone ages when it comes to phones and I definitely feel like a complete dufus trying to use this one. I am forced to learn geeky lingo like "push notifications" which might seem stupid to some people but after downloading my very first "app" and "fetching" my data, I feel so accomplished! Although, my brain is starting to hurt!
