    For some odd reason i decided to "pre order" my iphone 4 through radio shack. I was apprehensive from the start but the worker assured me that they would be able to fill my order on the 24th. Well yesterday I went into the store just to verify that everything was still a go. When i walked in the store the manager informed me that they will not be receiving any phones and blamed it on apple!!! Needless to say i wont be receiving an iphone 4 tomorrow and I'm suicidal!!! Well maybe not suicidal but pissed!!!

    why did everybody not think about best buy. All i here about is AT&T and Apple issues. I went to best buy at 7 pm on preorder day and I was number 2! AND I LIVE IN CHICAGO. I'm guaranteed an iphone. Hopefully next year people will use their brains

    I will not order from anyone but apple. Best buy, AT&T, radio shack are sketchy at best.

    And because I ordered from apple I'm getting my phone a day early. I like that!

    I would generally try ordering/pre-ordering in the following order: Apple, AT&T, Best Buy...then it is a toss up between Walmart and Radio Shack. (Did Walmart even have pre-orders?)

    Dude, your not guaranteed anything til you get phone in hand. All you have is a best buy gift card right now. Did they give you something printed saying you're number 2 in line?

    Lol the best buy I went to puts you in order. They call you and make an appointment (basically putting the phone aside for you until you can come in) I was the second person. And yes, he pulled out his box of pre-order/reservations and there was a big *** (2) circled.

    i AM guaranteed a phone. suck it

    Radioshack didn't pre-order... You went in, they got a number, and they put it in the system. Sometimes, it got a phone, sometimes it didn't. I went Monday, the 14th, trying to maybe beat the rush and pre-order early because I heard some were doing it. They informed me they weren't pre-ordering and it was a lottery system if you got a phone.

    Best Buy said you had to put $50 down to hold a phone, but you were almost guaranteed a phone.

    So, I went simplistic finally and went to AT&T and booked it Tuesday about 11:30am, and my phone should arrive tomorrow before 2pm.

    Just went into my radio shack. Guy on phone last night said he had them. Now the manager said he's not sure if they are getting them yet. He will let me know today. Also said the pin numbers is just a request so they don't have to give t to you but he did say I will be getting the first one whenever they do come in. Please please come tonight. I want it! Then go see phish Tom.

    Best Buy arent guaranteed the iPhones either. My best friend ordered theirs through Best Buy and they GUARANTEED they would get them in for the 24th release date, and now they called her saying that they might not get theirs until later because Apple needs them. So no, you aren't guaranteed anything until it's in your hand.

    My brother just called the Radio Shack that he "pre-ordered" from and they told him everything is still good to go on getting his iPhone tomorrow.

    However, my local Radio Shack took pre-orders and now won't be getting any in. Sucks for those who went through them.
