I got through around 3:40am in the Apple Store, got everything ordered. Everything went through, I got billed on my cc, and my upgrade has been used. BUT my reservation is not found when I checked it a few moments ago, hopefully this is just a issue with Apple a bit behind because of the surge of online purchasing.

That's funny I thought I was the only one with this problem. I too have the issue of my shipping address being the wrong one, I'm sure once the craziness ends we will be able to call in or go online and change it.

I ordered from the UK Apple store this morning through Mac.
After logging on with my Apple ID and choosing my models (4s 32GB B & W) I got the "Oops I found an error".
Finally after refreshing several times, I got to continue to check out page, where I was met with ANOTHER "Oops..." message. Several times.
After hitting "Place My Order" it said "Processing order" for about 10 minutes.
Since I was on Chrome browser I thought I'd leave it there and try again in Safari.
Same procedure and error messages as above until placing the order. This went through after 3 refresh.
SO, coming back to Chrome browser - still in "Processing order"... I shut that down.
I then received a confirmation email from Apple confirming my order.
8 minutes later another confirmation email ticked into my inbox.... So I ordered 2x2 iPhone 4S 32GB - same name, Apple ID, credit card etc.Well, my family members want one anyway so I will keep the orders...
But I thought I was limited to 2 iPhones - per Apple ID or credit card, or delivery address whatever they go by.Apparently not when ordering in succession.
All in all, a horrid experience that can only improve going forward. Hope you guys had more luck :-)

Patiently waited till 3am like a lot of others did, it wasn't until after 4am that navigation on the Apple.com and ATT sites were "manageable." Sprint's site work flawlessly for about 30 mins then it crashed. Verizon's site seemed to be working the entire time without issue. The Apple store app on my phone wasn't working either! Finally gave up at about 5am and woke up at 9am. From there I was able to navigate on those same sites without issue, BUT when I saw that confusing unlimited plan on ATT's site I opened a chat session to speak to customer service. We all know that was a freaking waste of time as the customer service rep stated the issue was with my Safari browser on my Macbook Pro as the site recommends Internet Explorer, really??? Anyways, the wife and I placed our orders via the Apple Store app on our iphone 3gs' without problems or confusions! As I'm writing this I just got my confirmation email from Apple ... 4 hours later!

I pre-ordered 2 iPhones... For my line is the 16 GB and I decided to open a second line for 32 GB... Now for the second line, how much should I sell it for? I just opened the other line so I can sell it to get money... and whats a good price for the 16 gb

Just look at the purported $20 billion Spirit paid to get the iPhone. That was for 30 million iPhones over four years. That equals out to $667 per iPhone on average (of varied capacities of course, MSRP ranges between $550 and $850)... and they had to agree to buy 30 million to get that price! They only have 27 million subscribers!
I wish everyone would give us free iPhones and let us upgrade every year, but from a business standpoint, I can see why they do what they do. Outside of the US, you generally have to pay full price for a phone! Imagine always buying an iPhone for the full unlocked price!

My preorder didn't go through and I wasn't about to stay up even later than I already had. Later that morning (around 9am) it said that I already had an order in. Called about an hour ago and they were very helpful at Apple. They checked to make sure I didn't have an order, and I did not. They aren't holding preorders at the actual Apple stores like they did last year. This is a huge letdown. Preordering online and getting it shipped isn't an option. I am wanting to use an upgrade available on another line on my family plan and this can't be selected online, so I get to brave the Apple store on Friday morning. Dropping my fiance off at the airport Thursday afternoon, so I am considering waiting in line. All in all this is a bit of a letdown. I am betting Apple had a lot of preorders that never got picked up at the Apple store last year, It's the only reason I can think of to not allow for reorders to be picekd up at the Apple store this year.

i got the same message. and then this morning i had a confirmation email with receipt number... my preorder has been succesfully placed. woot wooot!!!

FYI, for those of you with address issues, Apple's website seems to be functional now. I finally got the confirmation email (about 5 hours after I placed the pre-order!), and was able to log into my apple account to update my shipping address.

Was right there waiting refreshing the screen until they opened the doors. I was able to pick what one I wanted etc however the processing part of my order kept hanging and hanging. So I opened another browser window and started the buying process again... it took me probably 15 times to keep trying after two hours I was finally able to order my phone and by then it was 5:00 a.m. When the order kept hanging I kept getting error message and try again messages as well... however it was a good time while trying! Guess I am a die hard! lol
