    Special Offer Amazon 'expedited' delivery

    Got my iphone 4 then found I couldn't use it with Tiger on my Macbook. I could use it with the missus' Leopard and also with my old PC, but that would kind of defeat the object and make syncing more of an arse. Therefore decided to buy Snow Leopard for my macbook. Of course I want it as quick as possible and with the snow and Royal Mail delays I decided to waste a bit of money and pay 7 for Amazon expedited delivery. Yes, it is good that I ordered last night and it was already dispatched this morning, but I am a bit p*ssed that they used Royal Mail. It's non-trackable as well, so they haven't even used Special Delivery, just plain old Royal Mail for a 7 free. Rip off.

    Thats unusual. If you normally go for the expensive option, Amazon use RM special delivery. Id mention it to them.

    Maybe they hadn't got around to adding the tracking number... but I thought it was all done instantly with scanning.... Should arrive by Tues if SD, if not I'll kick up a fuss....

    Have you done the Prime trial? Might be worth trying it next time you need something quick.

    You have to hold it a special way to stop the antennae from working, but it's impossible if you use a case (recommended). You'll get one for free too.

    We're waiting for a kinect game from amazon, also sent non-trackable. Very strange.

    Amazon have just sent out emails to everybody asking them not to call the help centre for late stuff because they're being inundated, but you have to if items aren't trackable.

    Not sure they are free anymore? Apple to end free iPhone case program September 30 | Reuters

    They tried to sell me an Apple bumper for 25 (!!!!!!) when I ordered the phone. FFS, for a piece of rubber!

    Have ordered a leather case as I need a bit of screen protection whilst in my pocket.
    Do you guys use the stick-on screen protectors? I've read that Apple don't think they are necessary anymore as the glass on the iphone 4 is the same as used in helicopter windshields....

    Always used to use the screen protectors, but don't on the iphone 4. Though the glass certainly isn't shatter proof, it doesn't seem to picky up the scuffs and scratches from keys and coins.
