Will you be running around letting everyone and their dog play with your new, expensive iPhone willy nilly, or will you 'show' it to people without letting them touch it?

I tend to be pretty paranoid when I buy some new expensive electronic device so I think I'd be one of the "I'll show it to you, but HANDS OFF" kind of people...at least for a while. Maybe later I'd let people handle it as long as it's directly above a pile of soft pillows or something. :p

As long as the are sitting on carpet and a comforter, over another layer of pillows, and then some cotton balls.

I will let them touch it but not pick it up. I will leave it on the table for them use.

Agreed....not even in a selfish way either. Just in a "I know youre gonna talk crap about me later after I was nice enough to let you play with my brand new $600 iPhone" way.:laugh2:

People, I know, absolutely. Although my husband has been banned from ever touching my iPhone as I've got nothing but crap from him over it for the past six months. I know 100% that he's going to want to play with it and he'll get a big "bite me". :)

Strangers, no freaking way. They can watch me from afar and drool over the awesomeness that I will possess in my bare hands.

It depends on who it is.

Say I am sitting at the poker table shortly after returning from picking up my brand new iPhone and Erica Schoenberg asks if she can try it... do you really think I would say no?

If someone asks me if they can see it, I will respond;

"See with your eyes, not with your hands."

I'll let my friends and family play with it. Under strict supervision. And with one of those protective overlays on the screen, so they don't get their finger funk on my precious.

Strangers? No way in hell I'm letting some stranger hold anything I just bought for $600.
