Got a 64GB, Space Grey, iPhone 6 4.7" on launch day. Been using it for a few days now and it's just awesome!! 8-)

I have been using Android devices on and off for awhile now and it feels great to have a solid iPhone again. In the past I always went back to the i4 as the 5/5c/5s wasn't as enticing for me personally. 5.5" wasn't necessary as I use an iPad.

I was able to reserve the phone so my trip to the Apple store was easy. Picked it up within 15 minutes. But the normal lines were shocking and worrying at the same time because they were mostly all "Black market" people purchasing 2 phones each and paying with cash only. All sent back to China as they weren't apart of the first wave of releases this time. Some even tried to cut in the reserve line but failed.

Anyway great phone. Just need the app developers to update their programs to support the new aspect ratios. 8-)

Not surprised this happened:



This is what I was saying about the presence of the Black market:

^^Oh i'm so jealous. I did get to hold both of them yesterday. They are an amazing phone. I'll be getting mine in December when my current plan finishes. The screen quality blew my mind.

I was in an Apple store because my 5S started getting an message at the top left, "SOS Only". I couldn't make/receive calls and send/receive messages. The problem fixed by swapping the sim in with a new one but what the Apple worker told me was there have been quite a few "SOS Only" phone problems since the iPhone 6 launch. It solves itself with a sim swap at an Apple Store or your phone carriers store so don't be too alarmed if you encounter SOS Only.

iOS8 rollout has now been stopped. Causing way too many issues.

Another issue thats come up is the bending of iPhone 6 Plus BUT you know what i'm sorry but this is a $1000 item. If you don't put a case on it then its your own fault if you ask me. Sure maybe they shouldn't have used Aluminium and used a different alloy but at the end of the day you are supposed to look after it. You wouldn't throw your computer's hard drive around would you? Its the same as the phone. BTW they are forcibly bending the phone. What idiots and also they compare it to the Note 3 which is built completely different. Its plastic. No comparison at all. :roll: If you put a proper case on the phone then it won't bend.

they've said it bends even if it's in your pocket, how stupid!

I really want the 6+ 128gig but i do love the form factor of the 6. :p

Keep playing with it Telstra shop at Galleria. Pretty sure they getting sick of me playing with it and not walking out on a second contract. Plan is to keep my old number/phone and go on a second plan/new plan for iPhone 6 or 6 plus.

Are there any good covers out there for the 6 or 6plus? :)

What would you guys and girls recommend for a prepaid plan? I'd like calls and some sort of internet data bundle. 500MB, 1GB etc.

I am doing it all wrong right now. I bought an iPhone and recharged with $20 on Thursday and the same night the credit was back down to $0.00 because I had used a few websites and I thought "WTH?". Until someone brought it to my attention that I am on a calls-only pre-paid plan, not a call+Internet data pre-paid plan. I wasn't noticing it before as I was using a Samsung phone and never used the internet on it. So I assumed by getting the same recharge credit I would have no issues with it. Clearly it needs to change.

I'm with the Telstra network so maybe I should find something better on their website or head over to another company with my existing number. Lebara, Boost have both been recommended to me. I'm on Amaysim for my iPad so that's another choice.
