Bought mine at the Apple Store in Peabody, MA. Very pleased with my purchase. I got to the store around 10 AM... There were maybe half a dozen people in front of me... Waited in line for about 30 minutes... Walked in, got what I wanted, and got out... No hassle at all.

My girlfriend and I went to get our iPhones 3G S 16Gb this morning at 6:30. There were about 30-40 people in line, Staten Island, NY, although the Apple Store was full of employees who were really nice and fast, we had our phones quickly. We had 2 reserved, black one and a white one. Love it. Installed iTunes, filling it with some apps and music, new Wallpaper. This is our first iPhone and I find the battery life really good, it was charged up when we got them and we've been playing with them all day over 3G, over wireless, using the map and gps features, taking pictures, setting up contacts, playing around with the Facebook app, and some games. Called my parents down in Florida and talked to them for over an hour and it's still at just more then half battery.
The only downside was some issues with AT&T, but they were squared away quickly. I have to say I'm very impressed with the phone and Apple customer service, they made the whole experience pretty painless.

My only problem with the iPhone is AT&T, I have had every iteration of the device. I have said and will continue to say that AT&T f'ing blows. If it wasn't for the fact this device was so amazing I would have been gone a while ago. I'm so disappointed with the AT&T service no MMS even after 2 years and it being add by Apple. Other than I'm very happy with the device itself, just pissed at AT&T.

One tiny issue I'm having with mine is the WiFi indicator... The connection itself appears to be okay but the indicator seems to show very weak signal, even when I'm sitting right next to my router... My 2G/Edge iPhone's WiFi indicator shows full strength. Weird. Anyone else having this issue?

Love my new 3Gs. Like everyone's saying: much faster at everything than my 3G. Crazy difference.
Here's something I noticed that I haven't seen anyone else say yet. The calculator app has a different background than my 3G (which is running 3.0). It is not greyer between the buttons and has a textured look. Either its diff, or my 3G's screen was too dark to show it before.

After spending less than a day with the 3Gs I am SO glad I upgraded from my Samsung Instinct. IMHO the Instinct is a iphone wannabe that doesn't even come close.
Now if you will excuse me, I still have a few dollars of availability on a couple of my credit cards so it's time to visit the app store.

I really love mine. I can't believe how much snappier it is. I did some comparisons side by side with my 3G and couldn't believe the difference. I had a lot of problems with activation,but I finally just switched my sim and voila...activated. I can't believe the 3 AT&T reps told me it wouldn't work.

First and foremost, props to the FedEx driver who tried to deliver my phone to me 3 times on Friday!
On to the iPhone. Love it!
The speed is amazing and I'm love the camera and video. The quality is a definate improvement over the previous version. Bonus is having twice the storage that I previously had.
I've raved about it so much that 3 of my friends who are still 3G users are actually going to jump in and upgrade as well.
Now to get signed up with MobileMe ...

I made an appointment at Best Buy Friday at 230pm walked in got it activated walked out in less then 30 min no lines. Upgraded from my first gen 8gb so it was huge improvement to me. Everything is fast compared to what I had. Plus 32Gb sure helps alot and got the $299 price. Well worth it!

The hubby and I picked up our 3Gs yesterday. After being told that AT&T's store didn't have any in stock we headed over to our local Apple store. We were the first in line at that time and apparently just missed a huge line. By the time we got there around 4pm they were already out of the 16g black phones but I was leaning towards white anyway. We were in and out of there in 30 minutes with our new 16gig white iphones. The Apple concierge activated the phones in the store for us and that took about 10 seconds per phone. Everything went so smoothly. I was prepared for the absolute worst and it was just flawless. Nice job Apple Store in Novi, Michigan!!!
We LOVE our new iphones. We both had the 1st generation phones so for us the speed is incredible. I love all the landscape features, copy and paste. The camera is great and I love having a video option. My kids are always doing silly things I'd love to capture. Now I just have to remember I have the option
