    I got to a point where it said "How would you like it delivered?" and it only gave the option of Ship to my home. Then I clicked Continue and it asked me to login to my Apple account. Once I did that, it gave me this notification:

    Your iPhone has been reserved and your reservation number is: XXXXXX

    We will email you at this address () when its time to complete your order. At that time, you will return to the Apple Store to confirm pricing and plan selection.

    You may check the status of your reservation at any time by visiting buyiphone.apple.com/status


    Then about 20 minutes later I got the other email saying I could login and finish.

    I have backtracked. Previously I was able to get to the point where I select a data plan before I get the unable to complete request message.

    Now it is when verifying eligibility.

    Sheesh.

    Maybe this should be renamed the "Official trying to order the iPhone" thread.

    I give up. Guess I'll try again later or won't pre-order at all. What a cluster**ck.

    This is so bad for me trying to get this phone. I'm exchanging 2 iphone 4's that are within the exchange timeframe plus I'm at a new address than where my account is at. And at&t stupid rules says on website can't change address info because new contract is less than 30 days old. So I'm not gonna have 2 iphone 4s's setting in someone elses door step. I can't even get a straight answer.

    Has anyone tried Apples 1-800 number ?

    Gave up on Apple and ordered through Verizon. I wanted to order through Apple because I get double cash back through my credit card for ordering anything from Apple, but since for whatever reason they don't want to sell any phones tonight I went through Verizon. 16GB in white for me.

    I so don't want to stand in line for 8 hours at the AT&T store but looks like we might. Is there a limit to pre-orders or do they have plenty even 24 hours later? Or each carrier got 5 million or something like that.

    apple site keeps processing forever. On ATT I click "new line" when clicking pre-order on the page, and it takes me to a list with no 4S there. Wow.

    I tried for a while using firefox on apple and at&t. Then I tried explorer on apple and it didn't work, but when I went to att.com/iphone the pre-order link was there and it only took me a few minutes.

    Hung with Verizon and they have not done me wrong. Hell according to the ordering options i had on screen, the wife and I still have unlimited data. The whole process was smooth as a baby's backside.
    I got my confirmation within an hour so i am golden.

    To be honest Verizon is probaly selling less than anyone. There data is behind the curve too. Sprint and AT&T are kings still. Thats why they both screwed up with this pre-order thing, cause they don't care. They will always have the business. I have a feeling Apple, Sprint, AT&T all have sold out of pre-orders. Thats why at&t doesn't have the iphone 4s as an option anymore on there website and why Apple is no longer taking orders saying try again later. But thats just a hunch.

    Again, if you already have an iPhone, iPod or iPad, try using the Apple Store app. It worked for me... smooth and simple.
