iphone - at&t signal coverage in slo county

Hi Foyeburger,
I'm thinking about getting the new iphone when it comes out.
How has your experience been with the AT&T coverage while driving around San Luis county? Any places where you always get dropped calls?
I live in Los Osos, and work in Morro Bay and Cayucos. Have you had any problems in those areas?
Any comments are appreciated!
Thanks,
Andy

I drove by the store in the morning (9a) and the line was pretty short. I went back to the apple store around 5p and the line went all the way up to Marsh. I came back later that night and the line was gone and was able to walk in and buy 8gb phones no problem.

My husband called at 5:10 and they said all they had left was the white ones. We got there together at 5:25 and they were completely sold out about 2 minutes before we got there.

We asked the concierge if they would get in more tomorrow and all she could say was "I don't know" but added "After today we'll get regular shipments in, at least starting monday."

I'm bummed. Maybe tuesday I'll get one.

I assume you live either north or east of SLO right?

The SLO store is said to get shipments in every day, but they never know what phones their getting or how many. It's kind of funny, the SLO store has probably one of the biggest populations between it and other stores. You can call them, and they'll tell you whether or not they have them at that moment, but can't disclose any other information. We ended up driving to Thousand Oaks to get ours, it seems to be the only store that consistently has phones in stock.

Good luck!

Edit: Also, I've noticed shipments come in between 10 and 11 am. However they sell out within half an hour, so if you're feeling froggy, just go hang out in front of the store until you see the fedex guy arrive, then you'll likely get one.

Good!

So which phone did you get? I gather they're getting in White's and 8gigs the most.

I'm glad it worked out for you. If my husband and I had waited until tuesday like I originally planned, I'd have been seriously bummed. We drove to Thousand Oaks on Saturday and waited for 2 and half hours in line to get them. I looked tonight at the apple website, and see they are sold out for the first time since getting the phones.

Enjoy your new toy. (And boy it can be a fun toy!)
