In less than 24 hours from the time I submitted the order, I got my new iPhone in all her rose gold glory. I was sure I’d never be able to make the switch and debated working out of the home office to make use of mobility services OR going to an AT&T kiosk. I received an email with step by step instructions so decided to take the plunge and DIY instead.
Of course I get stuck. DIY *!(&&(*!(#* But there was a number to call. I tell the rep what I am doing. She says “sure I can help you” then boom call failed. I was like what the what, she hung up on me!!! and my new phone isn’t working yet.
I found a land line to use (the horrors I know!) and called AT&T back. But as I was talking through the prompts to get to a live human being, I noticed that by miracle of miracles the new phone was waking up AND working AND had 4 bars AND everything AND I mean everything came over. Even the apps. Thanks to the magic of iCloud back-up.
I spoke to someone else who walked me the rest of the way through transfer. Only afterwards did I realize the first person did not hang up on me. She pushed her magic button and like that Silver was history.
Rosie is not perfect. She was made with a defect having no place for my current earbuds.
Actually Apple has special earbuds just for the 7s with a flat connection versus a round one. But have no fear, they also have this tiny adapter. I can use my old earbuds in a pinch.
Or I can spring for air pods. Oh who I am kidding? I’m too cheap for that. I mean really. When the most I will spring for a new phone is a buck 06, I’m not going for air pods until Apple starts giving them away.
As always, more to come.
