    If you pre-order through AT&T, you won't be able to pick it up until Friday the 25th. They may make an exception, but there website says otherwise. Just a heads up. AT&T is all about the fine line print.

    I think if you order from Apple for shipment to your home you will receive it on the 24th.

    If I'm upgrading, for the $199 or $299 price. What are my pre-order options? Only AT&T, in the store?
    It's only impossible if you quit.

    I dial *639# and I get As a valued customer, we can offer you an upgrade with a new 2-yr commitment and an $18 upgrade fee.

    Does that mean the $199/$299 pricing?

    You people realize that you can pre-order online and get free delivery on launch date... right?

    Pre-ordering will not start at 12:01am. With that logic, why not 12:00am? Pre-orders will start around 9am est, just like every iphone online pre-order.

    spiderguy, yes.

    What do you mean by "You people"?! lol. Sounds like im pre-ordering through best buy. I can't get a straight answer from anyone at AT&T about how their whole pre-ordering/pick up is going to work.

    Pre-ordering at a site has some advantages. If you do not have wifi at home, having a CSR activate for you is a great benefit. Also, I realize this means you would be very impatient, but some people don't want to wait until 4PM to get their new toy, and would love to pick it up at 10AM.

    Best-Buy would be 100% guaranteed that you'd get your phone on time.

    If you preorder at BestBuy they will charge you $50 deposit that can go toward the purchase of the iPhone, and you pay the rest when you get the iPhone.

    This is what I was told as well. Pre orders to house/store won't arrive until the 25th. This is to make sure iTunes activation doesn't crash (again).

    I don't see why Best Buy not giving upgrade pricing is even a consideration here. There is zero reason to worry. They are an authorized ATT/Apple reseller. As long as your ATT account shows that you are eligible for upgrade pricing you WILL get upgrade pricing...

    Anyone here receiving a 15% employer discount for AT&T? I was told that it's a lot easier to pre-order directly through them (I will be a new customer moving from T-mobile) since they can apply the discount immediately. If I went to RadioShack/BestBuy/Apple, it would take 2-3 billing cycles

    I may do that as well. I've considered taking the day off of work and just waiting for the Fedex guy to drop it off and also considered waiting in line in the early AM again. Having it shipped to work then taking a half-day when it arrives might be a better idea.

    If by 4PM you mean when parcels are delivered to your house, other people get them first thing in the morning. It's infinitely more convenient for me to just pre-order online and be the one that unboxes my new iphone, not some squirrel in-store customer service person.

    Bestbuy realizes that people that shop at their store already aren't very smart shoppers - paying full retail, when they can get the same for less online... so why wouldn't they consider charging more?

    Release date is the 24th. If you pre-order online, you'll get it delivered the 24th. They're making up the 25th date in order to justify waiting in a line to pick it up in-store.
