... would you open it and set it up or give them the sealed box and let them do it themselves?
K's iPhone 5 has arrived and I soo want to open it and have a play, but it's not my toy phone.

I'd just give her the box.
I liked setting it up myself. It's all part of working out how to do things, so i'd leave it.

If I was the one getting it, I'd like to open the box and have it all new for me.
So tempting to check it out first though, try to resist!

You are all right I know you are

I'd open it to make sure it works and isn't damaged so you've got time to return/swap it before Christmas. Father Christmas has bought E a tablet and I've run through the set up on it and charged it for first use too.
05/12/2012 at 10:35
Ha, I'm just like you, I'd wanna set it all up.
05/12/2012 at 11:02
Nope I go against everyone else but then I have one so wouldn't want to play!LOL we have set Lauren's up already! did she get a new number?
05/12/2012 at 11:03
Yeah she's got a new number.
05/12/2012 at 12:47
Set it up then woman!! she will want to be on it straight away downloading Apps and all sorts!
05/12/2012 at 13:12
What's the number got to do with setting it up? How much is there to set up? I think I'm going to look make sure it's OK but leave the rest to her. It's her gift.

I would charge i but thats all. E is getting a tablet and we will charge it and set up it but thats for a 5 year old.
05/12/2012 at 13:17
Yeah I think charge it and make sure it's OK. She can do the other bits.
05/12/2012 at 13:20
As way to excuse opening it, I'd ring it christmas morning left next to her bed or something?
05/12/2012 at 13:23
I'd leave it unopened. It will come with a small charge in the battery and takes a few minutes to set up. The main bit about setting it up is with her email address and finding all the apps she wanted.
05/12/2012 at 13:38
Does she need an email address then TP? I don't think she has one.
05/12/2012 at 13:41
I would defo set up and then put back in the box fully charged, you will not get her off it!! then let her put everytthing else on like Apps (you have to have had it all connected to Itunes etc to download Aps I am sure) I was asking about the number becuase a lot of people don't know but they new Iphone has a micro sim so if you were not changeing the number you wouldn't be able to pre-set it up because it's not the same sim! there is logic in there I promise
Yep an email address is needed and a password for iPhone aswel for apps.

Why don't you talk to Rob about it sat? the girls will disapear once they have eaten...

Good idea Neen, he can maybe do it for me? To me setting a phone up is entering the correct time & date!
