  • Apple Stores Open at 8am, AT&T at 7am on June 19th for iPhone 3G S


    On June 19th the iPhone 3G S will be available from both Apple and AT&T stores at 8am and 7am respectively.

    AT&T has also released a video (above) on youtube clarifying how things are going to pan out on iPhone day. Right now you can pre-order the iPhone online for delivery or at a company owned AT&T store to pick up on June 19th.

    There will two lines at AT&T stores on June 19th, one for those who have pre-ordered and one for those who haven't. Once the doors open those that have pre-ordered will have priority over those who haven't.

    If you want the best chance of getting your iPhone 3G S on June 19th be sure to pre-order, and then be in the front of the pre-order line on June 19th. If history is any indication iPhones will be in short supply for the month or so after initial release, and stores will be stocked with limited quantity.

    edit: to be able to pick it up in store on June 19th you must pre-order in person at the AT&T store you plan on visiting.

    Prices are as we already know for new customers or those who qualify for upgrades. $199 for the 16GB model and $299 for the 32GB model.

      I just pre-ordered my 16GB iPhone 3GS. It didn't give any option to pick up at the store.. it said it will be shipped overnight with delivery as early as June 19th and shipments will be on a first come first serve basis. I guess I'll be waiting for the delivery person on Friday morning!!

      Oh ok.. I get it... you have to go to the store you want to pick it up from and pre-order it in person.

      AT&T Site... logged into my account and did the upgrade option. It was very easy and self explanatory how to proceed. They actually did a good job in that respect.

      I agree. I did the same thing. Mine was done through our corporate AT&T wireless account. Went through the process and upgraded to the 32 GB iPhone 3G S. Quick and painless. I did notice that the data plan went up since I originally bought my iPhone 2g. $30 now instead of $20.

      I am going to be watching out the window for the delivery guy on Friday.

      Yeah, well I'll sleep till 10, get up and watch the news to see if someone did anything stupid that morning to get one. I'll patiently wait on the devs to get it unlocked, oh and sort through all the post of bugs and problems and letdowns. I want it but I honestly know that it's not worth the pain for Voice, and a camera that zooms. But have fun everyone who goes out, WOOOOT...........

      I felt the same way when the 3G came out. I didn't bother to upgrade. I was enjoying my original 2g just fine. Now it has been 2 years and I must say that I am really looking forward to this new phone. In my case I am getting Voice, digital compass, video recording, and auto zoom camera....plus all the 3G features. Double WOOOOT.

      So i have a cell phone that is not an iPhone, [razor] and the 2 year contract ends this june 14th... hopefully enough time to pre order. and so when the contract ends, how much will it cost for me to upgrade to the iPhone 3GS 16 GB?

      I already know the $30 per month and so forth, i am just asking the price for the upgrade

      I'll probably just walk up to the store the day it comes out, or the day after, who knows I guess I can try to go up there tomorrow or something, but I don't think Its going to be that big of a deal down here, Montgomery usually doesn't have the same lines and everythign as everywhere else.

      Well just like the last two iPhone releases I wont be waiting in lines or drooling over the next phone until the Devs and Programers get everything up to par as far as Jailbroken and all the apps I want and already have are compatible. Why would I wanna get it then have to wait for my Slingapp to stop working over 3G, or iBlacklist not be compatible etc. Also, MMS isn't gonna work until they remove that stupid code, so again, my 3G is gonna keep me satisfied til the 3GS is all set with all the bells and whistles. Wait in line for a phone? ugh, you have to be kidding. Good luck to those of you that will though, and please don't take offense if the UPS guy drives by and laughs at you. He just thinks it's funny.

      i can't wait until the 19th to see the 38 page post about all of you bitchin that your 3GS is a POS!
      don't you know by now that buying it on day 1 just makes you look like a fanboy and eventually a whiner!
      WE ALL KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE, THE NEW PHONE "WILL" HAVE PROBLEMS AND DEFECTS!!!
      y get it now and complain for the next six months instead of waiting and not having the headache?
      its not like you guys are on the dev-team and need it to work on the unlock!!
      I mean geez!!!
      don't say i didn't warn ya!

      anyone else having troubles in Canada with Rogers?

      They said its impossible for me to get it because I brought the iphone 3g last year and i still have 2 years to go! And even if i cancel my contract (with $400 of penality charges) I can't re-activate my phone until I wait 90 days! This is crazy! And they said there's no way you can buy the phone without a contract!

      The only option i would have is to open a 2nd line on my account

      Tattoojack... I see you have an iPhone 3G. Whether you purchased it on the first day it came out or got it yesterday it's the same piece of hardware so what difference does it make and why are you hating?
