Well, I realize that there are very few little kiddies here, haha, but still. The point is, some of us just can't get the phone on time! I'm hoping I will be able to get it within a month after. I am a 16-year-old kid who works part-time at Staples as a Sales Associate/ Front End Assistant. *cough*casheir*cough* I don't really have the money right now, and my parents already don't like the idea of me buying a $600 phone. I will have made a little over $600 by that time, but the direct deposit to my Checking Account is toooo slow, so I won't have it. And there is NO WAY I am getting the 4 gig, don't even joke! Also, if this data plan thing is true, my Dad said I had to pay him a month in advance, so I need $40 on top of the phone, accessories, and tax. So, we will see. Is there any other people in here who will be missing the launch?

It sucks.....




For you! :p

Oh..those are the growing pains. Don't worry...life will only get better. Once you get a nice job and can afford something like an iPhone, then rolls around a wife, and kids, and car payments, and house payments, and loan payments from school, etc. ;)

Haha, I LOVE my job, it is definitely a decent job. And I will have money for an iPhone, just not on the launch date.
Hey it sucks not being able to get it on launch. But lucky for me I am. I'm 17 and i have been doing a lot of stuff to be able to get it on launch trust me it will pay off.

I'm not going to be getting one on launch day, but only because I am waiting until my Verizon contract is up in September. I can afford the iPhone, not sure about the [mandatory?] data plan, but cannot afford the ETF.

hmm, you should probably start selling drugs.. you would have your iPhone in nooooo time.
The iPhone would be the perfect mobile office, think of it as a businesss investment then... I would think you would need to be on the run a lot if that is your line of work.

Yeah man, the calculator function for prices, maps for findin where to hook up, camera for being able to prove your bigger quantities to potential big buyers, clock for timeliness. You can even pop the sim card out and use it as a razor along with the metal sheen on back so you can forget about mirrors and credit cards!

lol that's horrible. :sick:

Ok, now that was just over the line. But, damn, that was efficient too.

man I feel your pain, i Don't have the complete money yet, And might not have it on launch day, Gonna have for sure 400 dollars(On Friday after Paycheck), and maybe I'll be able to come up with the 2 other hundred dollars in other ways ..... I might ask my mom to let me borrow 200 dollars and I'll pay her back in 2 weeks or a month. I want one so bad. I'm 19 btw.
