Proof: White Iphone 4 Pre order Success
If your looking to get a White iphone 4 pre ordered and you can not on the Apple or AT&T site just go to best buy and do it there. I walked in it took 2 minutes they write down your information. You pay 50$ they give you a gift card to use as you wish or you could keep it until the phone arives and use it towards that.

I wonder if that's a guarantee that it will be available on launch or to come at some other time. I figure if Apple themselves aren't selling white, why give it exclusively to Best Buy? Don't be surprised if the pre-order is for when it arrives, not launch day.

yeah i went to best buy. But got it in black since i dont like that you see the ambilight sensor. And i was talking to manager and she said they will have the white ones. And the reason they are not being preordered with ATT and Apple is cuz they have not made as many as they can. I guess white isnt as popular thats why

I got a receipt from Best Buy stating I ordered a white 16 GB iphone 4 with my gift card. I was also assured that if they donít get them that I wonít lose my place in line and will have the option to get the black one if I wanted it.

Yes but I've also heard that someone asked them if they would for sure have the white version and the Best Buy employees had no idea, they said if the white is not available you can use it for a black one (if there are any left!), or you can wait (doesn't that defeat the purpose of a damned pre-order?).
So yeah.. I hate to break it to you but if the Apple store and AT&T aren't getting white iPhones on launch, why the hell would Best Buy?

I also received the same receipt from Best Buy, and was also promised that I would have it in my hands on release date. But, I'm still not crossing my fingers. I sent an email to Steve Jobs to ask when it will be released, so I'm expecting to receive a response soon. Most likely something like this:
Sent from my iPhone.

I want the white one, and even after seeing this thread earlier in the day, no way am I putting up money with Best Buy. Definitely sounds like they just want to get people's money, and they're crossing their fingers that they'll get it, and if not, people do have that gift card, so they're not robbing anyone.
I'm new to the boards, so I'm pretty sure I can't make polls, or even change my profile til I get some more posts up, but if I *could* it would be:
For everyone who wanted the white iphone 4, what did you do today?
I couldn't resist, and just ordered the black one instead!
I decided to wait until att/apple allows for white iphone orders
I decided to gamble and try out Best Buy
I always wanted the black iphone
If anyone wants to put that poll up (and feel free to reword it), I'd definitely be interested in the results.

I didn't pre-order because I want to the phones in person. I was sure I wanted white until I saw the pictures-I'm hoping it looks better in person. Wondering how it will affect eligibility for subsidized upgrade next year if the white isn't available until August.

I couldn't believe when I saw people saying BB was selling pre-orders for White iPhones when APPLE and AT&T (the 2 main owners) of the phone won't even have them or say when they will. I feel bad for the people that pre-ordered the white at BB. Hopefully BB will hook you guys up with something!
