    I would worry less about it being a premier account than the line being in her name. Have you been added to make changes to the account?
    I'm good. Had her add me last year to get the 3gs.

    This is exactly why I don't buy expensive things from best buy. Videogame? yes. Controller? Yes. Cell Phone? Hell no.

    Yeah....kind of had to see that coming with the white one. But I am surprised they couldn't guarantee their supply for release day. Guess Apple may be pulling back some to try and help themselves and AT&T out.

    A situation like this is why I decided going to a 3rd party vendor (BB, Radio Shack, Walmart) was something I wanted to avoid as much as humanly possible.
    thats why i continued trying Apple.com from 2am on the day it all began...I ended up getting it pre-ordered from them to be delivered to my house on launch day!

    I got a call from the district manager of BB in St. Louis today apologizing for the confusion on the white iphone and he offered me the black on launch day if i liked. He said that Apple had given them the info on the white iphones, hence the sku's in their system, but were unable to fulfill any orders for reasons he didn't know.

    I think you should be good then. I have premier as well. I only get a discount on my service and earlier upgrades than regular accounts, not on the phones themselves. Does she get phone discounts as well???

    No, I didn't get one when I got the 3GS so I don't think she does. On a side note, I went to BB today to see how far up the list I was and change my contact number. Mobile rep said they had 40 pre-orders at the store and that I was pretty far up the list. Looks like I will get one on Launch day.

    I have called almost everyday to ask my bb what's going on with my black 16gig and my gfs white 16gig. I just got off the phone and they said that I am 100% fine but my gf is not. They said their shipment is coming in Wednesday with 20 of each black model and HOPEFULLY 10 of each white model. We were preorders #9 and #10 so they will for sure have enough blacks to fulfill my order but their number of whites or if they'll get any at all is still up in the air so my gf is in trouble.

    Just called my local BB and AT&T store. BB said they should get some in either Wednesday night or Thursday morning how many she didn't know. Said they will start calling soon as they get some in and figure out how many they have. My local AT&T store is going to open at 7AM said I should probably get there around 4am >< if I want to get one she didn't know how many they where getting but its definitely sounding better than BB right now except for the whole early morning crap.

    I was in the Best Buy that I pre-ordered from and asked the rep if everything was still good on receiving my iPhone 4 Thursday. After she asked my name and which model I ordered she looked and said that I WILL be getting one Thursday and that they will be calling to set up an appointment. If they call me or not, I'll be up there when the doors open at 9am to get my iPhone.

    Best Buy has put up info on the white iphones.. those of us waiting for a white iphone are probably out of luck.. but we should have assumed that anyway. Since I can't post the link, since I have fewer then 10 posts(wtf) here is a brief read from it.

    UPDATE 6/22: Best Buy has received confirmation that, due to Apple manufacturing delays, we will not be provided with the white iPhone 4 versions for launch day, June 24th, 2010. Once we are provided with an estimate of when it will be available, we will pass it along. If you have a pre-order for a white iPhone 4, it will still be valid whenever we receive them.




    Please note that Best Buy stopped accepting pre-orders for any models of the iPhone 4 on Wednesday, June 16th, 2010.

    I will be there when they open the doors. My brother works at the Best Buy that I preordered my phones at and he said that he saw the shipment already there tonight when he left work. So the phones are already there. I'm just hoping that they surprise me and have the white ones available.

    I just got a call from Bestbuy where i pre-ordered the 32g White. The manager stated that he has gotten word from Bestbuy and they will not be available until summer sometime. Could not give a date. He also stated that there is now no guarantee that people will get their phone on launch date. He stated that Apple cannot guarantee that Bestbuy will receive their shipment for the 24 launch. He offered me a 32g Black when they arrive. He said that if they do not receive the product then he will call me to reschedule my appointment.

    This just pisses me off!! Anybody else get the phone call today?
    I received a call from BB this afternoon. They stated that although I was only the 5th person to place an order they would only have 1 of the 2 phones I ordered. So they have my 32gb phone but not the 16gb phone.

    Obviously they have my other phone as well but are choosing to sell it to someone else. If they have the one phone they have to have both. I informed them to be prepared to have a better explanation when I arrive.

    Unless the store received less than10 phones there is no way that they should be unable to complete my order. I know for a fact that when I placed my order they had only 4 phones on order. I wish them good luck attempting to explain how they were unable to complete my order

    My best friend said that her local bestbuy told her now that they might not get their phones on the 24th due to apple needing them? If that's the case, thats total BS. I'm crossing my fingers!!

    I just got off the phone with BB (DFW area) and they said that they just got their shipment in an hour ago and will be making calls here shortly to all the pre-order people! Oh hell yeah! I know all the people there because I used to work there so I asked how many they got in being I'm #5 on the list (16gb Black) and she said that " Oh you're good...real good. We got in way more than that.". I couldn't get her to give me an exact number but she made it sound as if this BB would be on of the store getting more of the 50-70 range than the 5-10 range.

    So hopefully that's good news for a lot of the people who pre-ordered at this BB! I so effing stoked for tomorrow!! I can barely wait!

    If you're curious which one it is the store number is 1032. She didn't say if they got any in to sell to walk-ups. I'm guessing all of the ones that they got are pre-order fulfilment.

    Hopefully they do get some in to sell to walk-ups. I would be pretty bummed if I couldn't get an iPhone 4 tomorrow. I'm really glad that I got my *** up early on the 15th to pre-order mine

    what best buy are you referring to? I pre-ordered a black 16gb at the burleson store, and i'm # 19 on the list. I went up there today while I was in the area and they said that there probably getting 20 of each model, but they didn't know for sure yet. And I saw a FedEx truck in the back! I haven't got my call yet either

    Still haven't received my confirmation call yet. I was told yesterday that I would for sure be getting one tomorrow by one of the mobile dept. reps. She didn't say if they already had them in and I didn't ask, wish I did though. I'm really not too worried about it since I was the 1st to pre-order the 32GB. I just like to have the reassurance that it will be there tomorrow.

    Why is today not Thursday?
