Got my very first "in the wild" iPhone sighting just a few minutes ago! Not at the AT&T store....not at the Apple store...but in my 26 floor office building!

I beamed at the guy...he looked askance at me...I pulled out mine (the iPhone, that is)...he beamed back...we connected...without a word...we continued on our different ways...neither of us swings that way...:p

I've waited so long for this day, I think I'm going to go find a couch to bounce on!:laugh2:

I am so envious. I can't wait for my first time.

(I'm discounting work - we have virtually one on every desk)

All that emotion, and you didn't even invite him to the forum? Mark

I had my first sighting a few weeks ago. The only thing nothing was said, just the "Apple" look, :laugh2:

You guys don't go out much!
I've seen at least 2 dozen "wild" iPhones in the 5+months I've had it.

This is what I was thinking....
Have seen at least 1 person (usually several) at bars/restaurants on the weekends.
Have seen 60something lady with one at the Apple Store...giving me case advice;)
Have seen 40ish construction worker guy playing with one at the mall...
I would bet I see between 5 and 10 a week.. just remembered the soccer mom playing with hers at Panera the other day...

whoa.

i think all the "hating" is ridiculous. the guy just posted about how excited he was to see another one "in the wild". just because you weren't excited it doesn't mean you have to be an ass.

and to be honest, i remember feeling that same way when i saw someone else with one (and still do if it's a hot girl). also i don't think feeling this way means i need to get laid..

i enjoyed his little story and laughed at the "i'm not gay" jokes. reminded me of Conan O'Brien because he always says that.

to the OP: nice story~
to the haters:

I met 1 person in Moscow, Russia in November and iPhone is not even officially there yet!
In California I already lost count - I met at least 10 people with I phone.

You got excited because someone has the same phone as you?

That's... special.

I was sitting on a bus a while back and the kid in front of me as well as the kid that sat beside me had iPhones. The iPhone has become very popular on UF's campus as of late.
