  • AT&T to get 2 iPhone Shipments Tuesday
    [ EXCLUSIVE ]



    [UPDATED: the store manager will tell people how many iPhones are coming in the second shipment.]

    Just got a leak from AT&T Ninja about Tuesday's iPhone 4 shipment to retail stores. Apparently, the shipment is coming in two waves, with an early one Monday night that is expected to sell out quickly and a stealth 2nd shipment Tuesday between 10:30 and noon. The store manager will [not] wait until all the iPhone 4s are gone before telling the people in line that a second shipment is coming. They'll take "reservations" from the people still in line when they sell out, so they're suggesting people stay in line in case some of the people in line don't buy because they don't have upgrade eligibility or they're over their limit on their credit card… what the document calls "fallout."

    They are also setting aside 2% of all the phones they get - half 16GBs and half 32GBs, for "customer escalations," presumably this means phones that customers bring back and want replaced.

    An inventory report will be available Monday afternoon to the store mangers that will indicate exactly how many iPhone 4 (16GB and 32GB) they will receive in their Monday and Tuesday shipments. The manager is to subtract 2% with a 50/50 split of 16GB and 32GB. This will provide some inventory for customer escalations.
    Apparently, this is all being done "to ensure an extraordinary customer experience."

Best Buy or Apple...I'd never go to AT&T directly to get an iPhone. The stores are too small for a release this big. Awesome device, but can't wait for the jailbreak.
      A friend of mine did the same thing. He asked me why did you wait in line for 6 hours? I told him, I guess you just had to be there...... I did it for the experience and it was an interesting one too. There were line cutters, people passing out do to the heat, Apple reps bringing out water and vitamin water, granola bars, they were playing music and dancing....... It was something else...... The question I asked him was, have you ever gone to a late night movie premier? He said he had, I asked why didn't you wait a week and then go and it wouldn't be as crowded and you were sure to get a seat? He said he really wanted to see that movie. Well I really wanted that phone........

      I second that, I love my phone, so glad i pre-ordered from Apple on the 15th. Now I don't have to deal with all this ******** that anyone who didn't has to deal with. Including my two friends.

      i did a pre-order through best buy on the 15th, and i went in to pick it up on the 24th at the specified time that they told me, but when i went up with my presale ticket they said they only got 2 of the 32gb iphones in, and they were already gone. i asked when i should expect to get mine and they replied with a "i dont know." i complimented their great customer service and thanked them for letting me know ahead of time and walked out.

      He might just be a raging poof - in which case he won't have a problem with the pic, and I trust no one here will either.

      If he's straight and he just happened to be in a strange position when the photo was taken then he will be mortified.

      But what does it matter?

      i got lucky (unlucky with the reception issues?) by snatching one easily the next morning of its release. i was bummed i didnt preorder but picked up one with like a quick 25 min wait. they were leftover phones that were held 24hrs for people who didnt pick them up.
