    I am more curious about the results later on throughout the day. Of course it would be slammed in the morning.

    It should be interesting. I've been trying since 8AM EST. It is now 10:16AM EST. I've tried both Apple and ATT.

    With Apple it gets to a point and says that the session has expired - maybe they should create longer sessions today.

    With ATT, I get the CC# put in and press check out and it ends up timing out. Too bad their server does not hand orders with a CC# typed to a different server so that the order can complete. Many people do not like typing their CC# in multiple times not knowing if it is charged or not. Who knows, maybe I will receive 50 iPhones on June 24. haha

    I got my preorder to go through at the Apple site around 9:05am EST after about a half hour of problems.
    Got an Order Number, it shows up under order status, and my credit card has been charged by apple already so I feel pretty good.
    My order shows that I will receive it on the 24th.

    I've been trying since 0730. Comforting to know that I'm not the only one. Is it always like this. Looks like AT&T is the bottle neck. What a surprise! (:-)

    UPDATE

    I did not get the order to go through or so I thought. The bank called and I then logged into my ATT account and looked under status and it shows the following.

    With that said, if you have put in your CC and pressed Checkout, check your statement and check your ATT account. I do have an order number so I'll see what happens.

    My order went through about 5:15 est through AT&T. Had no problems ordering through them. I never could get my order to go through on Apple's end.

    my order went through at about a quarter to 7 AM my time. I had no issues ordering and my card has been charged so i am confident i am getting my phone on launch day. Could not get apple's site to do anything for me. I'd get to add to cart and it would fail at going into checkout.

    Where's the option for 4+ hours?

    I don't know whether to laugh or cry that I spent 5 hours trying to buy a phone.

    good to see you got it finally. i was reading your posts earlier while i was trying to order and it wasn't working then for either of us. then att decided to open up a hole in their armor for me to attack the order button.

    Apple site is still bogged down, especially with the check eligibility function (Thanks AT&T). I went to the AT&T site and was able to get the order placed and confirmed. It was slow but did not crash.

    I guess all we have to do now is wait for the 24th, huh?
