Just Went and bought a iPhone for 1st Time (horrible experience)
 

 
Man I ain't even unbox this 14 pro max yet and I'm already having regrets. So I go inside apple store at appr 6:30 pm to get a phone and the store is packed with millions of sheep who are just looking at the same slightly upgraded version of a product they already own Anyways I'm standing and standing and I'm waiting for like 15 min. There are like 20 apple store employees around just casually talking to customers about God knows fu*kin what. So a guy finally comes over and approaches me after 20 min and he like hey can I help u??


I'm like uhhh yea, I'm here to buy a phone . Ok he says he'll get right at me. Time and more time goes by and now it's 30 min later and I just say fu*k it and walk out. Now it's 7:20 the mall closes at 8. I walk around do more shopping then I go back into the store 7:45 to buy phone . Another dude comes over and says can I help u. I'm like yea I'm tryna buy the 14 pro max. So I'm thinking dude is just gonna flat out ring me up for the phone he takes another 15 minutes just acting buddy buddy with me talkin about the phone specs and apple and all this other sh*t about the phone that I already knew. I'm like dude just fu*kin sell me the phone!! Finally he rings me up .. and I'm out


What in the entire fu*k that I just go thru? This is my first iphone after being with the galaxy team since 09. I said I was gonna give this a yr to see what this hype is buy I swear I just came out some sort of hypnotist type time warp full of sheep and wannabe elitist. sh*t felt like some type of fraternity almost. It was really bad. Then he hit me with its no power brick inside phone u gotta buy separately which I knew but forgot. What's so hot about apple?? I just dnt get it? Is it just the branding? If it was the gs23 I could've walked right in got it and left . Just bad man.

That sucks, I just came back around to the apple ecosystem because I recently brought a MacBook Air on sale and my LGV60 was getting a little long in the tooth and I was due an upgrade.

I have T-Mobile so I order my iPhone online had it shipped to the store and it was an easy process, in and out of the store in less than 30 minutes.

You could have done it all online. I got my phone through Simple Mobile. You buy the phone and plan online. They ship the phone. Then, you activate your phone when you get it. That's it.

Oh shoot, you use Simple Mobile too?




At some point though I do wanna eventually switch to either Verizon or AT&T as I was an AT&T subscriber at 18 but you know how these mobile carriers do; they monopolize and take over the little guys... I was told over the phone that I gotta switch my sim card to a "Verizon compatible one" now.

But wasn't Simple Mobile a subsidiary of T-Mobile before? That's how it was introduced to me, kinda like what H2O was to AT&T but maybe it was just that Simple used to use T-Mobile's towers.

You did it to yourself. But the phone itself is not bad. It's just that you are tied to the apple economy system now.

Yeah, I switched my sim card already. I think my service is a little bit worse.


I had Cingular and AT&T for years in the beginning... they were about raping you on that monthly contract... Every time I re-uped, I thought I was getting a better minutes plan, thinking I was getting a better 2-year deal... a month later, the competition had something better. That was a cycle of self-destructive behavior. I switched to Metro PCS and that was better financially. You pay more instead of pay-as-you-go but you get a better phone selection, that's the only plus with Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile.

I'm glad you mentioned that; I was very close to switching to and using that Verizon compatible sim card.

Before I got the T-Mobile Home Internet set up, I was going to use one of my old sim cards and put it in one of my old iPhones to use as a makeshift router but Simple said that sim card was no longer good.

I got the Verizon compatible one but then I just ended up getting the Home Internet here set up shortly after.

You're a better man than me.



I'd say from 2009 to like 2019, I was all pro-Apple and was fu*king with the iPhone hype.

Ironically so, the issues OP went through I had gone through years ago with Apple. They just hire anyone that's pretentious and pseudo-savvy in tech at that Genius Bar. I won't throw all of them under the bus; there were a few cool people at the Apple Store on 5th Avenue years ago but based on the OP, I see ain't much changed with them.

But I'm good off Apple these days though...

It's not that bad if you like simple sh*t. I can't live without my modded apps so it's Android all day for me. I don't think I can live without my modded Spotify and Apple Music and Tidal. Give it some time. You might learn to love it

I have a note 20 ultra still have it. Decided to get the iPhone 12 Pro max. That whole UI is outdated as fu*k. It feels like I had a iPod touch from 12 years ago. sh*t is trash. No customization what so ever or nothing.

You can’t hide names of females texting you or nothing. What kinda sh*t is that? You basically gotta turn off the Notification Center from the lock screen completely.

fu*k that phone.
