Waiting in line ups since 4:30am, watching the Rogers system fail and confronted by those who simply don’t get the hype, Tanya Davis and John Biehler were real troopers this morning (and continue to be) while attempting to secure their shiny new iPhone 3Gs.

They were featured on the Bill Good Show on CKNW and I was able to capture some audio from the show.

You can read their blogs for coverage, Tanya’s focusing on Rogers and their outrageous plans and lack of customer service, and John’s for the more technical side about this freakin’ cool gadget. John was also the one responsible for me getting my first gen iPhone at Christmas time so I think CKNW couldn’t have picked two better people to talk to today – that and Tanya’s comments are amusingly sharp and witty.

    Thanks for doing this Rebecca! I wanted to hear their interview and was stuck at the university ๐Ÿ™

  2. Thanks so much for posting this!

    I cant haz iPhone. I gave up waiting. I’ll go back early next week.

  3. Rogers’ handling of their customers is absolutely absurd! Personally, I’m holding out for the release of Thumb 2.0 – ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. […] the Bill Good show today on CKNW with John (aka retrocactus) — The lovely Rebecca was able to grab a portion of the audio for me… Thanks Rebecca! […]

  5. John says:

    Bummer Tanya….mine just activated…off to play now.

    Thanks for posting the mp3!

  6. Wicked awesome, John and Tanya. Loved how you guys handle the questions and sounded like the experts, because you guys are!
