I got the call from Best Buy about 45 minutes ago.
They asked me when the best time was to set it up and I told them the earliest possible time. At 8 am central time, I'll be rocking my new iPhone 4.
I feel like it's Christmas Eve. You know you have a really cool gift waiting for you but you can't touch it or even look at it until the next day.

I just left the BB where I pre-ordered mine and I'm good to go! I'm the first appointment at 9am ( they aren't opening early) tomorrow! They won't have any for walk-ups just pre-orders. I can't wait to get my brand new 16gb black iPhone 4!
I've had the chance to play with a live one (twice) at some of my Att stores, and all I can say is wow. The display can't really be described or even photographed properly. It looks fake it's so sharp and crisp. It looks like one of those dummy phones with the cardboard cutout for a display, but better. It really is impressive. And really fast I might add. It doesn't lag at all. The camera is also amazing. It takes crystal clear pic (fast) and records some of the cleanest video I've ever seen on a phone. It's amazing to watch HD video on the Retina Display.
Needless to say, I'm like a kid waiting for Christmas tomorrow.lol. It can't get here fast enough.

I just got a call from my local bestbuy. I now have an appointment for 8am so I must have been fairly high on the list. Seems like they did get enough to fill 40 perorders though. oh my best buy is located in Tuscaloosa AL so if you preordered there you are good to go and should expect a call soon.

Best Buy totally screwed me. I pre-ordered with them on the 15th; it was late in the day (5pm) so I asked the guy specifically if I would be *guaranteed a phone. He said yes, that Best Buy has a central database to track how many phones they'll get on launch day and how many pre-orders they're getting -- as soon as they reach the limit they'll shut down the pre-orders.
Fast forward to yesterday and I call them for an appointment time -- they tell me they have limited availability and that I won't be getting a phone. Words can't describe how pissed I am...

I don't understand why you'd go to a third party anyway.
I went to Radioshack the day before, they said they could not pre-order. Best Buy told me it would just be $50 and they could HOLD a spot for me. I decided to be safe to guarantee my iPhone 4, I went to the AT&T store about 11:30am on the pre-order day, waiting about 20 minutes, was given my receipt and confirmation.
FedEx says should be here before noon..

- Pre-ordered right before closing on the 15th at a relatively small store.
- Yesterday I rec'd word that I was actually bumped down the list from 7 to 8 to an undetermined number (wow @ that).
- Rec'd a call 10 mins. ago setting up an appointment for 2 hours from now (the store opened 15 mins. ago).
On top of it all, I ordered the seemingly rarer 32GB in black.
Moral of the story: wait it out.

I got the same call yesterday from bestbuy, that i was #11 on the list for the 32gig and they only received 10... I was pissed, but like every1 says u pay a price by thinking ur smarter than every1 else and skipping the lines at att and apple or the online problems. Guess jokes on me now i dont have a phone and mostly the rest of u do, Congratis too the 1's that got one, ill B waiting til nxt wk.
