    Well, when you get it delivered you can be in you're humble home, but if you want the device that day you might want to go to the store. So basically if you have patience have it delivered. If not, you might want to grab one at Sprint, Verizon or AT&T

    I'm going to pre order through a ATT store. I don't anticipate a line but if there is one I will switch to online ordering.

    It all depends if you can deal with waiting or not.

    Since pre-ordering plus pickup doesn't seem to be an option, I'm going for delivery.

    Some stores told me you could place a pre-order in the store and pick it up next week and other stores told me I couldn't. Does anyone know the official policy?

    I think I'm going to pre-order, I don't want to take the chances of not getting it right away. It just sucks that I have to wait to 3am in the EST zone.

    Ship to the house this time, even though I am off work that day. I know this time will not be as bad as last year but with a pre order pick up I still waited 5 hrs in Pittsburgh last year

    If I had an apple store around here, I would try the waiting in line at least once. As it is, all I have are AT&T or Best Buy's, so I am pre-ordering.

    Did that last year with the iPhone 4, and I got to be the one who started the official "received my iPhone 4" thread.

    I'm not going to pre-order this time, I did for the Verizon iphone4 launch and my local Verizon Store said they didn't have a huge line, nor did they sell out the first day. So I'm going to sleep in and head to one of our 3 local Verizon Stores when they open. I also have a Best Buy and Apple Store in town, so one way or another I will have an iphone4S in my hands by afternoon!

    AT&T servers were trashed early and often.

    store.apple.com/us only showed the Be Back Soon stickie.

    I got through using my iPad Apple Store app - third try was a charm. Got my phone ordered and my confirmation email.

    I would never under-estimate Apple, have you seen my signature, I own everything Apple! To many Verizon users are only 7 months into their contract, and can't afford to pay retail...I won't have an issue buying a 4S on launch day?.. Looking forward to it!
