I think i pre-ordered it for pickup at the apple store... but i didnt give any email information for a confirmation... the last screen i saw was, THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING WITH YOU- government issued ID...
did i miss a step?

at one point, after the AT&T verification, I got to that point but on the left side it showed it couldn't complete my request (which sounds like the AT&T portion). got that far twice and never got emails to confirm.
ordering through the new apple store app I did get a confirmation within minutes.

So I got in for the pre-order finally, I've been trying since 8 am, I already have one reserved to pickup at the apple store. I don't know which one to do...
how bad are the lines at the apple store if I go after lunch? will it be like 4 hours or like an hour? any tips?
I just after launch for the 3g, and there was only like 3 people infront of me in line, I realize it won't be like that, but if I go during the day will it not be terrible?

I don't think it went through for you then, patcom8. You never had the chance to identify yourself, so the gov't ID won't do any good.
Hate to say it but you may need to try again. [edit: unless you were already logged in to the Apple store with your ID from a previous session]
Give it a shot with the Apple Store app... since you do it through your phone, the info is captured for you...

doesnt it generate the information from my At&t account? it said it was able to retrieve my information from my at&t account and was given both options for ordering, in store pick up and home delivery.... mannnnn this sucks.....

After all day I finally got through on apple.com only to find out that the phone would be shipped to my father's house, who lives in a different state that I go to school in. Contacted apple store chat people and they can't change the address because "it's a regulation placed by the FCC that it be shipped to the billing address [of the cell plan owner]". Man, this is very frustrating.

Tried for over 14 hours before finally succeeding on Apple with a June 24 delivery date. Heck of a day. Very little accomplished. But hey, Brazil won their World Cup match!
Note: ordered around 8 pm EDT

I pre-ordered one at my local Best Buy yesterday at about 9:45am. It was extremely painless at Best Buy. I just walked in and went straight back to Mobile and pre-ordered a 16g White model. They guaranteed that I would get my white 16g on June 24th.
Oh how things have changed. I called them back this morning to make sure that I would still be getting my white one being Att and Apple aren't offering it. The dude up there said that I am still guaranteed a white one. But here's the kicker...its guaranteed when they get it in . So if they don't get it in on the 24th then I don't get an iPhone 4 until they do get them in. And they won't just give me a black version instead. Very lame.
So now I may be waiting until after the 24th for my phone and that sucks! I might not get it until the terrible rumored "End of Summer" ship date for the white version. Lets just say that I'm not to happy with Best Buy at the moment. Hopefully there is some sort of backlash on their part and I get either my white one that I pre-ordered or a replacement black version. Either one is awesome in my book. Though I still prefer the white version.
Just thought that I would update people on the Best Buy pre-order situation.

If apple or ATT doesn't have the white iphone for pre order, what makes you think BB will have them? Good luck mang..

I was in and out in about 5 minutes at BestBuy around 12:45 pm on the 15th. Took my name number selected the one i wanted and I was out guy said I was gonna have one on the 24th for sure. didnt ask what number I was in line but when I got there to order there was no one else in sight so odds are not many people new around here that you could go to bestbuy and order one

There's a reason why I don't shop at Best Buy anymore.
