    I've decided to go with the AT&T store, because of the way my plans are set up. I know I could preorder anywhere but I may as well try to keep it to one stop.

    The AT&T ordering system is down. They said anyone that comes back will be given the next spot in line.

    This is very frustrating. I'll keep trying for a while then give up. If they want my money bad enough they will make this easier.

    I'm in on AT&T's site; ordering 2 32GB iPhone 4 now...

    -- edit --
    never mind. Put credit card info, confirmed correct shipping, etc and hit the button to finish the order .... and then the window refreshed again asking me to put in a shipping address. (????) Clicked the link to change the shipping address and it knocked me out. This is insufferable.

    Yeah, i worded that badly. I meant they could swap the SIM numbers in their computer so you keep the new microSIM, but it is tied to your old number. OR the cut down method will work. I saw ther ei sat least one company selling a cutting tool and an adaptor to use the newly sut microsim in a std sim phone for $25 IIRC.

    This preorder crap sucks. I tried at 5:30am and multiple times since then and get jack squat from Apple or ATT. I may just wait a little while and try again or just wit a few days.

    Heck, I might just wait untl the white comes out to see it in person. (who am I kidding, I doubt I will be able to hold out that long. ;) )

    I had ALMOST gotten through on AT&T this morning, finally got through about a half hour ago on AT&T's site.

    16gb Black preordered, can't wait :)

    (I couldn't decide between 32gb and 16gb, but decided the money savings was worth it since the 32gb does not hold all my music anymore either).

    WooHoo! Used an AT&T link from the engadget page and was able to order 2 16G phones. Not sure when they are going to get to me, but they are ordered.

    It appears as though AT&T's site has completely crapped out. I can't even log in to my account right now. Maybe they got a clue and are putting more servers online or doing something with their database.

    Well, if you download the new Apple Store app, its very easy to reserve a phone for pickup on launch day. I was able to do that without a problem but I'm still going to work at getting one delivered. Don't want to deal with the lines unless I have to.

    BTW, I have a feeling that even if we do get our iPhones, its going to be hell trying to get them activated especially on June 24. AT&T will probably screw it up.

    Very curious to see the numbers from today....I think they are just getting nailed with users refreshing and trying to get on the site.

    Remember Sprints system crapped out under the load of people buying EVOs and that is a much smaller group....

    Called AT&T, they could not process my order. Per their suggestion I went to BB $50 deposit and number 6 in line at that store. Only the 2nd one to go for the 32G though.

    At least this year they are releasing the OS4 software on the 21st, so 3G/3GS users will have 3 days to upgrade before the 4 is released.
