    I'm reffering to the North Irving store off I-635 and N. MacArthur Blvd. The store number is 1032.

    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.

    My BB got 29 phones and the guy said I could show up at 3pm. I ordered the phone late in the day on 6/15 so I'm fine with that.

    Could have had a 16 tomorrow, tho I ordered a 32. I have a tee time that interferes with all of the open appts. Golf before phone. I'll wait for my 32.

    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..

    Wait it out. I was in that same boat yesterday.

    - 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.

    It's your every consumer right to have an opinion. It is your every American right to voice that opinion.

    You may be surprised - shipments have been coming in waves. You may not have been on the first but more will follow, trust.

    appointment at 10:30, walked right in and the whole process took about 15 minutes (and that included having them install the invisishield for me.

    A total piece of cake.

    is best buy selling the invisishield? I remember they asked me if I wanted to get a case or protector with it but I said no cause I was hoping to get something else. But at this point id rather have something then nothing.
