or does anyone know when the pre-order will be available for the white iphone? Will Apple or AT&T tell us if the white will be availablel on launch day? I will be pissed as hell if I get up early to stand in line and it was never available.

I finally made up my mind & had decided on the white 16GB, but to my dismay, not available for pre-order. Wonder why Apple didn't fess up to this or give us fair warning? I'm sure not gonna get up to stand online on launch day unless I can pre-order.
I guess the leaked AT&T doc was right, and it looks like we'll be waiting 'til "later this summer". Phuck...
I can honestly say that the iphone is truely for me and at this point I don't mind shelling out the extra money I pay over other carriers for the same plans, but I'm starting to get really pissed off. Why in the hell do I have to wait for a color that they have already introduced? Then I have to wait until later in the summer - Sprint is looking real nice right about now.

I can see introducing it, but at least be up-front & let the customer base know it won't be avail. until approx. "X" date. All of us that were looking forward to having a white iPhone 4 on 24 June were kinda duped. I'd be OK w/no immediate availability if they set the expectation in the beginning. That's one tenet of customer service Apple seems to have missed out on.

I'm only annoyed at the number of people who want white, and are now ordering black because they feel they must order something. Half of them won't get the black they ordered, and the other half won't be happy if they do pick them up!

i don't mind the white not being available as i had settled on a black one before i went and ordered. it was a pain my butt trying to get through to pay for it though freakin site was rediculously swamped. i could not pre order through apple but i got through on att's site.

I was on the fence about getting a white or black one but this just made up my mind. Meh, I'm not that concerned as I like them both. However, I will agree it is slightly deceiving... I surely would have liked to know.

I'm curious to the validity of this - solely because Best Buy has made some "amateur-ish" mistakes in the past with pre-orders. No offense to you, I believe you... I just don't trust Best Buy. Lol[/QUOTE]
No offense taken. I totally understand the comment. I would post my receipt on here showing it but I'm a little nervous of showing my credit card and personal info.

Lol - no no, I wouldn't ask that of you. Like I said, I believe you... I'm just surprised Apple is letting Best Buy do it but they aren't doing it themselves?! Well anyway, I'm going on lunch in a half hour and going to swing by my Best Buy (Reading, PA) to see what they have to say. Regardless, thank you for the heads-up!
