Finally got my 3G iphone in Singapore

Was quite skeptical to collect it on Saturday when i saw the news says a man queue 12hrs to be the 1st person in SG to get this. My friends took 5.5hrs during the midnight 12am-5am~~!! sweat manz...Being a very lazy person, I told my wife i will walk out the queue if it exceed 1hr and save my wallet...Luckily or not, mine only took 45mins from registering to collection.

SG Singtel Comcenter

Stage 1 - Queue was almost empty, this is where they verified your invitation

Given a bottle of water, a pack of twisties and a bunch of useless mailers to read during your wait. From here, a personnel will escort you to a short walk to Stage 2.

Stage 2 - Waiting in line again, long queue here to stage 3 (est.20mins)

Stage 3 - only 5 person is released to stage 4 around 10mins.

Stage 4 - Collection booth, here's quite fast..about 5mins

this one not for sale..haha

and finally on hand, counter service takes max. 10mins for the staff to unlock and do the other admin and payment work...the wait wasn't quite bad since it was the 2nd day of launch. I bought the white 18gb version. As it was raining that time, Singtel even gave you a cheap umbrella so that your phone won't get wet, "very considerate" considering we are paying a prime price (than other countries) for this iphone in SG...hah...damn...i hate gadgets!!

slightly sleeky and lighter than my previous 8gb iphone on the left

i love the white mac version

that's all folks, time to downloads bunch of apps into it and stress it as much as i can to optimize the performance. Have you got your 3G iphone yet?
