  • 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.

Like specifically after pre-ordering the phone under his name and everything, go to the person at the store and ask them to change the microsim to my phone number instead on the spot? This is the reason I'm picking up at the store instead of shipping to my home because I feel that I need this special request to be done at the store.
      I've never heard of a person having any problems doing this. I've used my sisters upgrade before. Just make sure if he won't be using an iphone/smartphone you aren't getting charged data on his line.

      Friends and I have waited days in line (2-3 days), hoping we can pre-order ship-to-store so we can do it again =D

      Just like the iPad... the ship date was the same day as the launch date which was the same day as the delivery date. This is ALWAYS how the language reads. You'll see stuff like "expect delivery date" or "As early as".. etc etc. This is done on purpose to avoid any liability in the event something were to happen that delays delivery. To date.. this has never happened and all customers that have pre-ordered (on time) have received their product ON launch day.

      does anyone know yet what time on the 15th you can start preordering yet? and if i do preorder and have it for pick up, is there a better choice on where to pick it up at? i have both an apple store and att store blocks away from my house...i'd honstly rather have it shipped if i were guaranteed to get it the 24th...lol this is the first brand new iphone i'm buying so i'm not quite sure of the "best" process....how does it work then, if i preorder and have it at say apple...if go in there after work say around 6-7pm they will have it for me there guaranteed and then they activate it there as well right?

      You should stay up all night on the 23rd... and hit refresh on the Apple website every 2 seconds until they launch the order site.. then let all of us know! Just kidding.. best guess.. 8 or 9am. As for the "best" option... that's personal preference. Option 1 and 2 - have it shipped to your AT&T or Apple store.. they will hold it AT LEAST until the end of the day with your name on and and it will be reserved for YOU only. You would then activate at the store. Option 3 - have it shipped to your door step.. get it when you get home and activate on iTunes.

      Ok here is my predicament, I have an iPhone 3G with the 30$ unlimited data plan. I however do not want to lose my 30$ unlimited plan, I am also on the same AT&T contract with my GF, if we upgrade her contract to an iPhone 4 like its going to be her's, can I just switch sim cards with her and give her my 3G after she upgrades her contract? 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.

      Actually you can. Thats how I got my 3G two years ago. I had gotten a HTC Tilt 6 months before the 3G came out. I used my dad's number to get the upgrade and they let us do it. We are also on a family plan, so I know it can be done.

      Do they do the Fedex Home Delivery with signature? My only concern is not being home during their delivery timeframe (usually in the early afternoon).

      Will Wal-Mart sell the iPhone 4? I had to upgrade my 2g (broke it) to a 3g and 29 days later the 3GS dropped it price and I switched at Wal-Mart. Now on June 24, it'll be the 30th day and I'm curious if I can take the 3GS back but I assume I can only take it to Wal-Mart since that's where I bought it. Any confirmation on whether they'll be selling it?

      I am taking the day off! Preorderong it and waiting for home delivery.

      Do not care for the AppleCare pushing minions at the applestore and dealing with the line up

      Wait wait. Can we preorder and have it delivered to our home?

      Nevermind I see yes we can do that. Good. Thank goodness the forum is smart enough to put all my posts into one big post cause I can't delete or edit threads on mobile mmi

      Do u have to get it shipped to billing address? I only cause where I live isn't the best places and I'd rather have them ship it to my work since I'm there most of the day. I wasn't sure how picky they were with that one as well.

      Current customers get to keep their unlimited plan. I'm not sure if the same thing works with current customers NOT on a data plan though.
