    Best Buy will not have white iPhone 4s at launch. I know that some folks had already assumed this, but others of us were still holding out hope that there might be a few strays making it through the network. Best Buy, however, has updated their FAQ to reflect the lack of availability.

    Sorry if this has been posted elsewhere.

    The only way that Best Buy would of had White iPhones on the 24th was if they were fakes. If Apple does not have them NO ONE will!!! Why don't you guys understand this.

    When did Apple say they will not have white iPhone 4s in stock on June 24?

    They could have saved themselves a lot of trouble by verifying they could get them before saying they would have them. :)

    Still doesn't necessarily mean Apple won't have 'em on launch day. It is yet to be confirmed by Apple, ok?

    There are so many things wrong with this post I'm actually stunned. So much so that I'm going to assume it was intentional. Well done.

    Seeing as though apparently Walmart is getting a very limited quantity of white iPhones, I assume Apple will have a small quantity, but enough to go around for those who wait in line on launch day.

    It is pretty clear from their web site that it is not available for pre-order or in-store pickup so it won't be there on the 24th.

    Pre-order means from now to the 23rd. In store pick up means reservation. No where on apples site does it say "not available until a later date".

    If the white iPhone wouldn't go on sale June 24th, which of these statements would you pick to express that on apple.com?

    "White iPhone currently unavailable for pre-order or in-store pickup"

    or

    "White iPhone will not be available until late summer"

    In-store pickup is the same as a "reservation" (the same language is used for the black iPhone 4). The statement on apple.com simply means that they aren't comfortable with pre-ordering/reserving the white iPhone 4. Just because they aren't available for pre-order doesn't mean they can't sell them at all.

    And why would they come out and admit they won't have it, only to piss off so many people already? Easier to keep us wondering until launch day than to admit it before. It will also prompt many impatient people on launch day to just settle for the black once they see everyone else getting theirs.

    Because then they lose their reputation. More importantly, Steve Jobs loses his reputation. Half of Apple's marketing is done through good old Jobs presenting himself as the meticulous creator of these products. If he loses his credibility, so do his products. If Apple didn't want to look like jerks, and more importantly, if Steve wouldn't want to look like a jerk, they would have announced the shortage themselves a long time ago. However, if you're right I'll be heartbroken.

    Still holding fast hope, I think. His local store is still telling him he'll get one.

    Wow! What a fashion faux pas! Stormtroopers having to carry BLACK iphones. Ugh.

    THey just called. They're only getting ONE iPhone 4 in, as will all of the other Best Buys.
