    I searched around a bit, but did not see the answer I seek and didn't want to start a new topic. Anyways, I'm trying to figure out who is the misinformed one in this case, AT&T or Apple Stores. So I was unable to pre-order due to the awesome server meltdown, so I'm attempting to walk-in. The issue is, AT&T is not offering the walk-in service until next week, so I'm wanting to try my luck at my local Apple store. My issue is I am NOT the primary on my account, my wife is. I am however an authorized user and know all of the necessary info. I called two different apple stores this morning asking if they are doing walk-ins and at what time. Then I asked if I am able to purchase the phone at my upgrade price without my wife being there, and both the different Apple Store employees said yes, as long as I am an authorized user I can upgrade But NOT add a line. They said all I will need to know is my wife's last 4 on her social and the billing zip. Then I called AT&T just to double check and they said that it was impossible for me to upgrade without my wife present at an Apple store and I can only purchase the iPhone 4 at a corporate AT&T location. So who is lying? haha I really need to know as my wife will NOT under any circumstance wait in line for MY phone!! haha

    Rant/

    Thanks

    I am in the same boat. My wife's name is on the account but I am also an authorized user. I went to The Apple Store and they said that I would be able to buy our phones (by the way, pre ordered 2 and a longtime ATT/Iphone guy).

    My plan is to go after I get off work (I work early so about 11am). The ATT person that my wife spoke to said that if I run into any problems (as there well may be) to call 611 and have someone from the APPLE store talk to the ATT person. If I still can't buy it as an authorized user, my wife will just meet me at the Apple store later in the day but they better not sell our phones if I have to wait 7 hours between standing in line the first and the second time.

    Green Hills mall - Nashville, TN.

    Now that I think about it, I'm not sure why I pre-ordered. I'm quite convinced I'm the only person who knows how to use a smartphone in this state. There's no danger of running out of stock.
    Me too...

    Just had a friend drive over there to scope out how everything was, and the mall security chased him away from waiting in line outside the mall, told him to come back at 6am, seems like it may be a mad rush to the door later, but ill post again once i get there and let you know how it is

    Bridge Street Town Centre, Huntsville AL. I'm on vacation in Alabama this year, so I had to do the reservation thing for launch day. Last year I was in Columbus, GA for the 3GS launch (again on vacation) and was able to walk into an AT&T kiosk at the mall with no line/waiting. Not counting on being that lucky this year.

    Yep, I'll be at Baybrook Mall in Houston, although I may not get there until 8 or so. I'll be the guy with two small kids in tow. (Don't worry. I'll have my iPad and old iPhone to keep them busy in line.)

    In Houston. BayBrook Mall anyone?

    That was actually going to be my question. I want
    to know if these are reserves or walk-ins.

    Great minds think alike. If these are reserves, I'm heading down within an hour.

    From what I have been told, if you reserved it ,then it will be there. I am worried about the activation time and problems that could arise later in the morning. We will find out soon enough.
