To be fair, my real time to complete the process on AT&T was around 15 minutes. I just started that process at the same time I did with the Apple Store at around 2:30AM PST. It's just the Apple Store was a stubborn mule! And they talk about AT&T not being able to handle traffic. I got so many "Timed Out", "Expired Page" and "Oops" messages on the Apple Store that I thought it was a new feature! I tried around 5-6 times and was as close as entering my payment information. And then later it said "We'll be back soon". Bastages!
As soon as I went back to my AT&T page and entered my info, it went through smoothly. I have two emails with order confirmation where it says "Processed".

It has crossed over into comical how bad Apple and AT&T have bungled this. Just after 2PM on the east coast here and still have not even come close to getting an order to go through on either site.

2:17pm. Still no joy. The sad part is that I really did get a positive response from AT&T one time but Apple reported that my session had time out. Perhaps I dozed off. I am now trying with three computers and yes, I do understand that I a making the situation worse. On the other hand, some people are obviously getting through, so, while make the whole situation worse, I may be improving my chances in what has turned into a lottery.
2:59 It is done. The transaction was waiting on AT&T. I was on the phone. Next thing I knew, the order was done. I had agreed to pick it up at a local store. Not what I had intended at all. Waiting for the confirmation to see what else I have agreed to.
245am Wednesday. Still no e-mail confirmation.
incidentally, while all this was going on, I was talking to my godson, defending my right to give his 13 year-old one. He thinks he won; not a chance. Interestingly, one of his concerns is video chat. In the light of Facebook, Twitter, and the sending of nude photos, parents are really alarmed by the
idea of video chat. Not being one, I had not thought about it. Scary.

Did mine with the new iPhone app and it worked. Took a few times (it crashed the first few tries) but it went through and I got an email. Smoother process I believe... Neither AT&T nor Apple sites were good but the app worked with a few times (over Edge, nonetheless, on my 2G)

I finally got through about 30 minutes ago and got my order in, also ordered a white bumper...which won't ship until July 2. You would think they would have given themselves a bit more time to get everything ready. The green bumper won't ship until July 16. The only one available to ship with the preordered iPhone on launch is the black one.
