IPhone 5 in store pre-order and pick up

On pre-order day the 14th i walked into my local at&t store to pre-order, on the 21st they release the Iphone at stores for those who didnt pre-order and will wait on line. Now my question is will my pre order be there on the 21st? i still haven't been able to track my order and when i pre-ordered the sales rep said it might come a few days late . im thinking late ? how can walk ins get their iphones before i do when i pre-ordered???????

By the way, the preorder goes to your house, and not to the store)

And, some of the people in line may not get an iphone.

Wow

I know apple only does ship to home for pre-orders on launch day, and I would be shocked if at&t did anything different. Did they tell you that you can pick it up in store? That just seems like a mess for the carriers to have two lines going.

If you ordered your phone late it will not be there on the 21st. The phone that AT&T has in the store on the 21st are for people who are willing to get in line and wait. There is usually a very limited amount unless it is a large store.

Anyway, these are two different supplies of iPhones. If you want YOU can wait in line and get one if you are lucky and you 2nd one will follow to be picked up later

I think you mean First World Problem. Third world problems are not having food on the table, not being able to afford vaccinations, not being able to fix your home, etc...

Either way, it is a first world problem!
