Used iPhone 3GS Unboxing

When I received my iPhone 4, I decided to give my 3GS model to my assistant and Community Manager Kat. She works extremely hard, and is always willing to drop whatever she’s doing to take on something else whenever I need her to. She’s fantastic at handling the community issues that crop up, and it seems as though everyone loves her. I was lucky as hell to find her three years ago on accident, and I don’t know what I’d do without her! Here you’ll find her attempt at an unboxing video. GO EASY on her, y’all. This is the first time she’s done something like this. She was extremely nervous, so she asked her daughter Ashley to join her in the video.

As you can see, I threw in some extra goodies! Kat was quite shocked to find everything that was in the box. She tells me her favorite is the gorgeous CalypsoCrystal iPhone Dock. These are solid lead crystal, and each are hand-made. They truly are beautiful, and the video doesn’t do it justice.

I included the Richard|Solo external battery so that she never runs out of juice. There’s a car charging kit as well as a wall-charging plug.

Next in the box was the ZeroChroma iPhone Theater Stand with Sound Scoop. I thought this would be a nice addition to her accessory collection. You never know when she may want to watch movies or listen to music… that sound scoop REALLY works well!

I also included the ThinkGeek AirVolt Wireless Charger (click here for ThinkGeek Coupons). Kat is a big-time fan of anything from ThinkGeek (hint! hint!). I know that these wireless chargers are a lifesaver at times, so I wanted to make sure she had one.

Kat indicated she has already bought a “girly” looking iPhone case. Lord help me… I’m not sure my heart could take seeing it when she’s here next month for Gnomedex! However, I did send my case along.

Since she’s new to the iPhone and smartphones in general, Kat is very excited to start trying out apps. Anyone who wishes to send her a free code to test something out (and then possibly talk about it here on my blog), feel free to Email her directly.

Kat – thank you for everything that you do. No one really has a clue how hard you work, or the amount of hours you put in every week. Hell, I’m not sure even I know how much of yourself you give every day. Just know that the entire community appreciates it, and we’re better off for having you running the show behind the scenes.

Unboxing the iPhone 4

Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed

When I first opened the box for my iPhone 4, you can see how well they packed it. There’s no extra material. It was strapped in tight with a thin strip of cellophane. The box was white, but the phone is black. I ordered the 32GB model.

Yes, I used a pair of scissors to cut the tape on the iPhone box. No, I haven’t learned my lesson about using sharp objects.

The phone itself was also covered in a thin layer of cellophane to keep it nice and safe. It’s very obvious as soon as you pick it up how much smaller and lighter it is. True to form, there’s a very clean experience on the inside of the box. I wish other hardware manufacturers would “get” this. I didn’t have to fumble around with books and manuals and extra packing materials. I just opened the box and removed the phone.

I am not sure why so many people watch unboxing videos. They’re pretty boring, admittedly. But there you have it, anyway.
