    Preordered 1 32GB Black from Apple for in store pickup and got in last night before the "end" :D Got email confirmation within 15 minutes (not that it does any good as the bottom of the email states its not a guarantee of anything... ;) )

    Will wait for the wife since she thinks she wants white... hopefully we get an update soon on when tehy will be available.

    Guess I'll be up early AND late to work on the 24th. :D

    I noticed that as well. Also in the right column under "iPhone Number & Activation" it says "Once you have your iPhone, activating and syncing it is simple.".

    Someone needs to proofread those e-mails a little better.

    Ok -- amend my post to say "many people". The comments on Gizmodo, Engadget, Macrumors, etc were all filled with reports of premier customers not being able to preorder. I was not able to preorder through AT&T because of this myself --- so I had to go through Apple.

    I got through and got an order number and everything. I
    went home thinking all was fine SINCE I HAD AN ORDER CONFIRMATION NUMBER.
    This morning the bastards at AT&T emailed me to let me know my order has been cancelled. No way to call to resolve. Nothing.

    Thank you, idiots, for waiting until after you sold out to cancel my order. If I had known I would have had my wife go to AT&T at 2pm CDT.

    I'm now trying to convince my wife to get the Droid X phone.

    There is a new dock for the iPhone 4. $29 available on July 2 according to their site. If you have a universal dock, the 4 adapter for it is $9.

    Well, I ordered at the AT&T store yesterday. It was all done on paper since the computers were down. They said I'd get an e-mail confirmation today.

    I just logged on to ATT to see if things were any better (not worried myself as I got the order completed through the Apple web site). I have a Premier account, and you still can not get to the upgrade section. It gives you a number to call, which when you do says they can't take your call right now and to call back later.

    So much for "Premier" ......

    You all know me... I don't rely on luck. I rely on names taken down and leisure time spent following up :)

    Oh BTW I settled on 2 16-giggers, I don't terribly care that they're white. If they look too silly I'll put a black skin on them.

    I would be surprised if you get a white phone on the 24th.

    Stuart, how were you able to pre-order white iPhone 4's? I've only seen black listed for pre-order.

    Thats not good news, I ordered two as well. I hope ordering two iPhone 4's to replace two iPhone 3G's (not GS's) doesn't cancel my order too.


    I just checked my "order status" AT&T site, and it shows 4 lines of info. 2 for sim cards, and one for each of my phones. All are shown as "In Progress".... that's a good sign.... I hope.

    Well... I am not 100% sure they will be white, but white or black I'm happy. As I said, the order is paper-only right now so I won't be sure what I'm getting until I see the real order.

    Well, the rumor of getting white 16GB phones turned out to be just that... a rumor. I now have confirmed orders in the AT&T system, for two 16GB iPhones, and as you all pointed out, they will be black. I'm happy either way, actually.

    Oddly enough I got two more emails from ATT this morning telling me my orders were in process. Sure enough, there they are.

    They cancelled the order that I had a receipt for and I have a new order number that is now dated June 16, even though I clearly ordered on June 15th.
    However, I have no printable receipt for this new order number but when I check ATT site, there they are.

    I wonder how many iPhone 4 units have already been manufactured and are sitting in warehouses vs how many are still sitting in China in lots of pieces-parts.

    It's been two days since I've ordered..... supplies still look good here by the door while I wait for FedEx.... Water may be running low but I have beer here by my tent.... Seven days to go... I can make it... I can make it...

    iPhone 3G is starting to make fun of me... telling me iPhone 4 won't love me the same way it does.... I can't listen.... I must be patient and wait....
