My plan this whole time has been to get an iPhone with my fiance when his contract is up (august 31st). I thought I could be patient and wait. Silly me. Six months? That is just too long! To make it worse I went to the Apple store today and played with it, and compared my sad dim blackberry screen to the bright beautiful iPhone screen, and I wanted to buy one right there! I called my fiance "um...honey?" lol anyways he wants me to wait at least until after we get married (may 3rd). I don't even know if I can wait that long! Now Im going to have to try to convince him to pay his etf..... I think Im loosing the battle against the desire for the iPhone.

When I got mine I was using a brand new blackjack two. Witch is really an amazingly reliable phone. My roommates bought an iPhone and jailbroke it the first week. After that I had no choice but to scrap the brand new blackjack and purchase the iPhone. I personally am very impatient. I would beg beg beg. Good luck!

Haha thanks. It's not like hes telling me I can't get it (hes not that kind of guy). He told me "well... its your money and you can do whatever you want but I wanted to get them together..." . So basically I don't want to have to feel guilty. Hes not surprised though, Ive had my blackberry for 6 months and thats the longest I have really ever kept a phone. lol. He actually wanted the iPhone before I did, so I want us to share the joy :) . I figure if we get a decent amount of money from our wedding I can convince him to pay the etf with sprint, his phone he has now is horrible and cuts out constantly. Its time for a change :)

May might be a pretty good time to be doing this. By then there might just be some more news on a V2 iPhone release timeframe. If there is, and it's June or thereabouts like a lot of people are betting on, you'd have to hit up people a little less subtly for some more cash at the wedding maybe :laugh2:

That was really the only thing that was holding me back, the possible chance of v2 coming out. A lot of people are starting to think it won't come out until the end of the year though, and I am definitely not waiting that long! When it does come out, I will just sell the one I have and buy a new one. If its worth it anyways. however, If they do announce that v2 is really coming out in june, I will be very happy!

LuckyKellyk,

I know its probably going to be hard to wait for the phone, but I just thought of something pretty sneaky to get you into one so you can save your money for all the cool accessories later, Gift Registry ;)

Hooray for Registries!

Haha can I register at the Apple store? lol! I wish!
But seriously, do you think it would be totally rude to put "Apple store gift cards" under the registry section of our wedding website? I wonder...

Time to start droping hits in suggestions box over at Apple. I think that would be a killer idea.

I don't think that would be rude at all - I think a lot of the time people are stumped for what to get a couple, or get round to it late and find lots of things already done etc., gift cards are quick, easy solution :)

Yeah for sure, almost all high end stores feature Wedding Gift Registries, even the low end like Target.com!

This would be a great addition to the Apple store, especially for me! :)

Dunno how the lady would feel about it, but why get stuck with 2 bread makers when you could get stuck with 2 iPhones or 2 imacs instead?

definitely not rude. We did it, and got tons of gift cards. We registered for things we had so we could return them for $$ and buy some things we wanted, but felt uncomfortable asking for. But quick true story:

When we were registering, I zapped a $200 entertainment system, just for kicks. Shari (my wife) got a little mad, but really didn't care. Someone bought it for us! LOL. Looking back, had we of registered for a tv or whatever, I'm sure we would have gotten it.

Point: register for whatever you want/need. Worst case scenario - you don't get it.

(boy, I sound greedy and twisted in this post)

well I did it, so we will see :). We had 3 other registries but none of them have very many items on them.My fiance registered for a blu ray player when we went to target, I don't think thats going to happen. He wanted to register at sears for a 4,000 lb capacity floor jack. Im like uh, I don't know about that. I wouldn't mind getting target gift cards, because you can always use those, but I really don't want a bunch of crate and barrel gift cards, or Macy's gift cards. I would MUCH rather have Apple gift cards! (By the way, thanks for the great idea guys! It will be interesting to see how much Apple $ we get. The thought of stacks of Apple gift cards makes me giddy! lol)
