So my case is waaaay over due. After 45 mins (yes 45 mins!) waiting for an Apple rep to speak to it turns out they had changed the shipping to normal post in Australia which is the reason for the delay.

She was aware of this and had a note in front of her but I wasn't informed of this at any point so there is no tracking number. Anyway, she said it still has taken too long and is likely lost so has couriered one out to me this time. When does it ship? 12/10, delivering on the 14th. At least it's only the case and if my first one does turn up they said I can keep it.

But 45 MINUTES! Thats worse than the IRD!

My phone arrived from Apple yesterday. The first thing I did was go to Vodafone on Lambton Quay to get a micro-sim. They were out, but I was directed to the Manners Mall shop who would apparently give me a free one. Well, they didn't think so, and were pissed at what the Lambton Quay shop said. (The Manners Mall shop is a franchise and not an official Vodafone store, apparently). VF should get their sh*t together. About three of us were directed there within a few minutes of each other.

Anyhoo, after having played with the v4, I decided that the retina display is nice, but I coud have coped with the same display as on my 3G. But everything else is much better. My TomTom GPS can actually keep up - it used to be frustrating betting told to turn after I'd driven through the intersection cos the 3G  was so slow. And I don't have all the GPS dead spots I had with my old phone.

Hmm, well I'm thinking I now need an iPad. The screen on the Touch/Phone is just too small for web browsing and I'd like a bigger one for books too. I'm going to get the cheapest one since everything I REALLY need to be mobile is on my phone and the iPod gets to go with me into the garden.

The web site says 24 hr shipping. Does that mean from China or would that mean from NZ? Anyone know?

Well most eligible shops have it in stock, so I'm assuming that it could be sourced locally....

Thanks. One of the disadvantages of living in the middle of nowhere, gotta ship everything in. So wish I could walk into a shop and pick one up. :)

I'm guessing Apple changed its lead times. I ordered my case yesterday. The estimated delivery ranged from two to three weeks depending on the selected case. The one I chose was three

It was interesting because when I called up she said it was disappointing what had happened. She actually said it would be couriered out that day and delivered by the end of this week! Then I saw the confirmation and realised it was another month away... aaaaand I dropped my phone onto tiles yesterday! Small dent on the metal.

So I'm taking it back and asking for a refund because I should have had my case by now and I wouldn't have had the dent if it had been shipped when they said it was going to be... Haha could you imagine!

Good luck. Hope Apple don't say that the case was provided free to fix reception issues, and protecting the phone wasn't their responsibility

Lol there is no way I'm ringing them about that! I blame my hands...  Although I'm sure people ring with pretty stupid demands.
