    So best buy called me last night. Apparantly this one isn't getting ANY iphones. NONE. ZIP. ZILCH. What the hell man. Is apple so incompetant that they can't fulfill their orders!? They had plenty of time and plenty of chances to get this right. Why do they always suck so much!?

    If "they always suck so much" why did you order one of their products?

    Sure, blame Best Buy for not being able to stock supply from their supplier [Apple], which has to meet the unrealistic demand that their self-created 'hype' surrounding the release of a new product such as the iPhone4 has produced. It seems that someone skipped out on their Econ 101 classes...

    You really think Apple did this on purpose? With the number of prodders they blew through their initial allotments in record time not leaving them with many devices at all for retail stores. Maybe blame Best Buy HQ for not sending any to your local store.

    I love their products. I mean LOVE them. But how they go about delivering their product is horrible. Is it so hard to put a limit on pre orders? Instead too much is preordered and they can't fulfill inventory for any of the stores (BB, walmart, RS). I mean seriously, a whole store in CHICAGO doesn't get ANY iphones? frustrating much?

    Does anybody know if apple stores are still going to hold phones for instore reservations. I did that to be on the safe side and got an email saying it would be there the 24th. I work til 330pm and am hoping its gonna be there. I'm just thinkin that with all the cancellations and what not, they won't even care about reservations.

    Don't be so quick to jump on Apple. Who knows what happened. That's one of the reasons I'd only buy from Apple... I feel your pain.

    Difficult for you to get because the product is so sought after. People camping out overnight just to get their hands on the dang thing. That doesn't mean it sucks...that means it rocks! If you judge a company by how easy it is for you to purchase it, you should buy a Blackberry instead.

    I've had blackberries, their great phones from a great company with great distribution methods.

    I don't really like the musick part. That's one of the main reasons I like the iphone. The ease of playing musick

    Sounds more like a Best Buy problem to me. Seems that everyone that ordered their phone directly from Apple will be getting theirs (if they didn't receive it early yesterday) without any problem whatsoever to me. I'm having a hard time seeing where Apple did anything wrong on this.

    Easy then...just get a Blackberry which is always easy to purchase, and then pair it with an iPod...also easy to purchase! Then, you'll never have to complain about Apple sucking again!

    Okay, BlackBerry it is. No iPod for me, though - horrible sound processors/drivers.

    ahem, didn't you hear about all the cancelled orders? Apple did drop the ball on this a little bit. Not saying BB and others are clear of blame. There should have been better cooperation by all parties involved.

    Whatever. Same difference. It's called Supply Vs. Demand. Look it up. Other end of that equation is Supply Chain. Read a book please, js...

    somebody getting a little butthurt? hehe

    But one thing you are forgetting. Apple knows exactly how many phones will be available at launch. So they also should have put limits on preorders so there were no cancellations. Unrealistic demand means nothing.

    THANK. YOU. Someone else here understands how these things work. They can only manufacture a certain amount, and they are going to send them to the paces the will sell the most. Just happens your best buy isn't one of them.

    Wow, how old are you, really? That's a very mature response...

    There is not 1 person/company/entity that is responsible for incidents like this. Multiple parties are involved that are accountable for the poor distribution of a product such as the iPhone.

    Current equivalent = BP oil spill.

    I'm done trying to talk to a child. When you grow up, let me know...
