    Stock is still good, especially in Texas and new york and florida.

    Go get your iphone on sunday...what is holding everything up is the overall process...Apple can not seem to process people in a timely manner.

    It's not necessarily accurate.

    I've called three stores that are showing stock of all 3 models that have been out of stock for a while today.

    I did notice that one of store entries changed from 3 greens to 3 reds about an hour after they closed.

    yeah they're not cutting off the lines soon enough...which means they continue to sell after the official closing time...so if it updates like you said then it's best to check it just before you leave to go stand in line in the morning.

    A guy on Engadget said they told them before opening at the Oakbrook, IL store on Saturday that they were completely out of the 16GB black...despite the website showing them in stock for Saturday on Friday night. Tonight it shows as all in stock once more (after I confirmed over the phone they were indeed out). Needless to say I'm going to be refreshing the status page. Tomorrow I might actually go try to stand in line.

    If I strike out there I might make a trip downtown to the Michigan Ave store...since I figure they'll have all the phones there if they don't have them in any other Chicago store. Kinda like the 5th Ave. NY store...it's one of their flagship stores in the States...they wouldn't dare let those run out. Everywhere else, sure....but not the store all the media outlets go to.

    Lines still too long here. .

    My store is showing availability but they are lined up outside all day . . in 102 degree weather. I would buy, as I am sure others would, but the activation process has apparently kept the lines long and avail high. . .

    Once I can get inside I will buy. . .

    I take it you called Montgomery Mall and got that info? That's disappointing, as the three greens made me think it was almost worth trying. Perhaps midweek instead.

    The website says it only updates at 9 pm (after the stores close), so if you called based on what the site says, it was guaranteed not accurate. Since the website only updates when stores are closed, there's no way to call the store asking about the info - it would be closed. And if it was open, people would be buying the things.

    I called earlier to ask if they would have phones for tomorrow and they told me no. I just called back and someone answered the phone. They told me they should have phones, but didn't think they had any 16 gig blacks in stock.
