Pre-order the iPhone 4 from Apple OR AT&T=Realese Date Delivery
I just got off the phone with one of AT&T Reps, and had asked if I preordered the iPhone 4 through them, if it'd be delivered on the release day like Apple is doing.
He said the way it works is they send their pre-orders to Apple, and Apple sends those to the factory. Insuring that regardless who you order from, it'll arrive on the release date (if pre-ordered soon enough).
I've been on AT&T for 10 years now, and my plan is 7 years old.
Apple's site gives me an "Account Has Problems" error when I try to check my eligibilty, and says "Missing or invalid price plan info". The rep said this is probably because my plan isn't available anymore.
Anyways...just figured I'd make it clear that if you pre-order from AT&T, the orders are shipped directly from the factory in China, the same way Apple pre-orders will be shipped. They don't get shipped to an AT&T warehouse first.

If that is the case, I'll be pissed off. It worked so well for me last year. I skipped a lot of people that day. Walked in, no problem.

I can't imagine that Apple won't have the option to reserve the iPhone for pick-up. They love the hype of lines forming.
AT&T on the other hand... I wouldn't be surprised if reservations weren't allowed. AT&T stores don't get nearly as many units as Apple stores.

I'm going to have to go to an AT&T store I believe because my wifes # is the one listed as upgrade ready and I'm applying the upgrade to MY # to I need AT&T to add the IMEI # to my #. Not sure if an Apple store can do that or not...???

I just bought a 3GS from my Apple store on 5/20 for $199+tax. I wonder if I can exchange it for an iPhone 4, similar to what AT&T is offering (Price Match Guarantee)? Minus the difference? Although, I bought it at the same rate that iPhone 4 will cost. Hmm...15" rMBP 2.6/16/256, iPad, iPhone
