  • AT&T Stores Open at 7am June 24th for iPhone 4


    The exclusive news of AT&T's cash back for iPhone 3GS plan wasn't the only thing we received from our AT&T ninja yoTelefonoTresG yoTelefonoCuatro this morning.

    Among other things we received the above flyer confirming a 7am store opening for AT&T locations on June 24th. Mark it on your calendars! Other things confirmed: existing customers can buy one iPhone 4 per phone line and new customers can only buy one iPhone 4 total.

      I'm a UPS driver, and we handled the iPad this year. We probably have the Apple account and will deliver the iPhone 4 too. Not 100% sure, but it's very possible we'll get the order. Anyway, here's a tip for everyone that will be home waiting for their deliver via UPS/FedEx etc. If you know your driver, ask him where you can meet him on his trip or where he starts his day. Trust me, we LOVE when people come to us since it saves us a stop. If you're gonna sit at home and wait for the delievery, you'll have to sign, so don't miss him/her when they make the attempt. If you have to use the bathroom or shower, leave a note on the door that says "UPS/FedEx, I'm home, so please knock loud because I'm upstairs...etc" It does help. Any note I get I wait a little longer since I know they're home, or atleast the note says they are. There are those aholes that leave a note then go out. lol Good luck everyone.

      So check your local store were you live because that is how they are doing it here I guess.
      I thought I saw this online too
      Doesnt make any sense though. This would Suck.
      they say it will be available 24th and also there will be 2 lines, one for pre-orders, I think it may be some kind of typo.

      Im hoping to pick up a preorder 24th.

And by doing so I get a new iPhone 4 and keep my Unlimited 30$ Data Plan? And she already told me yes to this I just want to make sure it works with you experts first.
      The sim swap won't work. The new phone has a microsim. Have her upgrade her line and then you can take it into a store later and get a new microsim with your number on it. She will have to get a new sim as well to fit in your old 3G.You will keep your unlimited plan, but the new iPhone she gets will have the newer plans which she can then use with your 3G.

      They may even do all of this for you right there on the spot. It beats having to come back later and do it.

      i have found out with FEDex or UPs with a required signature on delivery [no matter what the cost or fragility of the product being shipped] that they will still deliver it with no one there to receive or sign for. really efft up but it happens to me all the time. i guess they figure they can cover any costs of stolen or lost items since theyre such big ballers

      Weird. They shipped my new notebook last Tuesday and I was at work. They took the box back and I had to pick it up (Fedex Home Delivery)

      I need to confirm something before attempting to sell my 3GS a 2nd time.

      I can just pull my SIM out and use my wife's backup nokia temporarily for 2 weeks correct? My number is stored on the SIM, so my contacts will have to be entered manually. I am fine with it, but I want to make sure it won't mess up my unlimited data plan or anything with ATT while I wait

      Have a few questions.

      #1: My local AT&T store will have 7 number of allotted phones coming in. Are the phones they get "first come, first serve" on the 24th by who gets in line first? Just wondering if I could walk in on the 15th and preorder one of their phones coming in to be sure my phone will be there and ready to go on the 24th? They said i could preorder there but I never asked if it was from their stock of 7 phones or if they would just have one shipped in seperate from their allotted number.

      #2: If 1,000 people preorder online and ship to that particular AT&T store then it's likely they wouldn't have enough phones on the first shipment to cover everyone. Do they ship based on the time you preordered? Or do they just ship X number of models and whomever gets in the preorder line first on the 24th gets one assuming they still have that particular size/color?

      Lol well my 3G still works perfectly fine - I just consider it a brick in comparison to the iPhone 4. It's been a long 2 years but it's time for it's retirement (AKA selling it to someone lol)

      Okay guys pre order question. I started my account with 3gs on Jan 2010 and ordered through my FAN website and they would only ship to the address associated with the Credit card address. Now I want to pre order the phone as I will only get the partial discount, but how do I get it shipped to AT&T store through my FAN website when ordering when the AT&T store address is not associated with the CC you are using? Also how are you guys selling your 3gs's already with out cancelling your contract? How do you sell a phone with out cancelling your contract so someone else can activate it? I am coming from the sprint world when selling phones.

      HAHA... I think you'll be fine if you sleep in and pre-order mid morning buddy. iPhones are not going to sell out within the first few hours.. .or possibly days for that matter. Even the ipad which had limited availability delivered on time for those that ordered in the first week or so.

      So once again, are the iPhones that the AT&T stores are allocated preorderable? Or are those "first come" on the 24th?
