    Apple would be a bad company to be following then, huh?
    They make it so easy for my wallet to open.

    Meh, the haughty part of me wants to glance condescendingly at those who are willing to wait hours outside a store to get their grubby little hands on a little plastic box of circuits and silicone.

    And the other part of me wants to scramble on my hands and knees to my att store and and camp out to get my grubby little hands on said plastic box of circuits and silicone.

    I think that Apple is well aware of how popular this is and will be sure to send plenty of stock to each location. They wouldn't want to lose customers over lack of supply, especially since AT&T has the activation rule and if you want to use the phone right away you will activate it the same day.

    I believe that Apple and AT&T are counting on the enormous demand that the device will have and prepared accordingly. In the end, selling lots of phones works in their advantage. I will go to the store in the afternoon (between 2 and 4pm). If they are sold out or there are too many people in line, I can wait.

    Given the technical savvy and prowess of our local AT&T store, my bet is they won't sell out on July 11, because they won't have the first customer activated before 10:30 am.

    I hope especially that it doesn't sell out in Canada, considering it's never legally been available here!

    Im sure Apple knows how popular it is and will have enough at the stores. And with 1 per customer they hopefully wont run out early on.

    R u saying that they didn't released officially the 1st gen iPhone in Canada? I can't believe it. I didn't know this fact.
    But I wonder why not selling it in Canada too. That's a big market with a lot of potential. And in so many cases what USA gets, Canada gets too.

    I remember people were concerned about it when the first iPhone launched but they had plenty in stock at my local Apple Store after the launch. Still, there's a lot more hype with this release since it's so much "cheaper" in the short term. I'm sure it varies depending on how big the city you live in is, but in Oklahoma City I doubt it will be tough to find one on July 12th.

    I'm sure they'll do well and many people will want and get an iphone but not like last year.
    In my opinion unless they can really make everything low and not screw with the phone plan's on AT & T ($ 70 + A Texting Plan = Greed) most people can't afford a iphone like last year with the economy. Yet.. if the same people could afford a $500 iphone a year ago... then who knows...

    I completly agree with you. The new iPhone will be a hit, but won't reach the sales level of the 1st gen iPhone in the 1st day

    I think you are wrong. Remember, the US was the only country selling iPhones the first day last year. This time, its a more global event.

    i just spoke to an apple rep at the king of prussia store and he said they will be getting a shipment before friday large enough to carry them through the entire weekend. so it sounds like you can get it all weekend without waiting in a crazy line on friday.

    Good luck calling your local stores (if they are AT&T). You can't get a live person in an AT&T store if your life depends upon it. Perhaps Apple stores are more responsive, but our local AT&T store immediately shunts you off to 800 auto-answer land...

    That's strange. Neither of mine do. I talk to my AT&T guy weekly. He loves me.

    True and I also forgot that this isn't limited to the U.S right now, BUT I think the U.S sell's of it wont be as great as fast as it was last year.

    Apple hasn't had many commercials in the U.S saying how low the price is now and made it look like something for the everyday cell phone user. When they do that... then they'll have outstanding success and a whole new wide variety of customers.

    I have also called several of my local AT&T stores to find out about upgrade eligibility and have either not able to find someone to answer my questions or even a live person to talk to on the phone.

    I sure hope British interest is not a precursor. Apparently O2 has been swamped with "pre-requests" to purchase the iPhone 3g...
