    i preordered thru best buy and am not happy. i put the $100 down on 2 iphones (16 & 32) sprint. now i dont know if sprint iphones are so limited that they are just not getting any but i was 2nd on the preorder list for sprint and w a week gone by i havent gotten a call. instead now i've been able to reserve both iphones that i want thru apple and picked up one wednesday and will be picking up my other one today. but the problem with this is that my $100 deposit is sitting on a gift card and is not refundable to me. i konw at some point i will probably use it but i'd rather get my money back. so i think i'm done ordering at BB from now on. its not worth the reward points or financing. i think next time i'm going to go through the apple website on the first day you can preorder and if i dont get lucky there, then reserve it like i did for my 2 phones. so i say stay away from best buy if u are really trying to get the phone right away/soon. if you dont mind waiting then BB is a good deal.

    You CAN get your money back for your gift card. I pre-ordered at Best Buy here in Cincinnati and I was the 1st pre-order on the 7th. I got an email last Thursday 10/13 saying my order was received and I called and sat up my appointment. I got up there around 7:30am last Friday 10/14 and the manager came out and said they didnt receive any iPhone 4S in and he is sorry about the confusion. I left and walked across the street to the At&t store and there was about 10 people in line.. Long story short, I was able to get a 32GB White 4S on At&t. I only waited a total of about an hour and walked out with my new shining 4S. I then went back across the street to Best Buy and they refunded my gift card, and cancelled my pre-order with no problem.

    I really like Best Buy for everything but wireless service...I would rather go to the actual verizon store instead.(but a good idea if no carrier store is near you)

    I got the same message. It's BS really how they are handling this.
