I know most of you have been waiting for Apple to release their newest phone, the iPhone. I am no different. I have been waiting for this device to drop in my mailbox every week for the last 4 months. I have never missed a single flight, and I have been a loyal customer for the past 4 years.
Apple has been shipping their phones in a lot of different ways. There are some cases you can get them at your local electronics store (usually the ones that have the cheapest prices). But you can also get them online. There are two different ways for Apple to ship your phone: the first is the free, “regular” method where you just throw it in the mail. The second is the “premium” method where they charge $99 to ship your phone.
I can’t speak for anyone else, but in my experience the two methods have been pretty equal. The free method is the fastest, but you can probably get the same phone in the mail in a month. The premium method, on the other hand, is quicker, but it is a lot more expensive.
It’s a little confusing that the premium method requires you to buy a phone, but I guess it’s less expensive for Apple to ship your phone over a wireless network that is faster than any of their own cable broadband connections.
Both methods are good, but the free method is the easiest to get. You can get a prepaid phone, but not Apple Pay, for example. I was using my iPhone 3G for the last couple of months and it was pretty painless to get a prepaid phone. I think it might be a little slower than the free method, but in my experience I never did run out of battery, which is a big plus.
I’ve been using Apple Pay since it started in the spring, but I still use my iPhone for everything. It’s just too easy for me to forget I’m on the road.
Apple Pay is free, but you have to make some cash. There are plenty of other ways to get them, including Apple Pay with a credit card, paying your balance and paying your check.
The only other way to pay for a prepaid phone is with cash. Apple Pay works on any Apple device with a micro-SIM, which is convenient because you normally can just go to your phone store and pick up a sim card there.
The company behind the new iPhone Pay service is Apple, but it’s essentially just a way to use a prepaid phone for cash. A couple of years ago Apple was testing a program that would let you use a prepaid phone from home to pay for things, but this is the first time they’ve actually shipped one.
