    Both will take several weeks. I'd say apple has the best chance of beating estimation times.

    Could be either.

    Or you could go to a store Fri, or maybe even Sat and get one.

    Go to the Apple store on Friday, go early! Everyone who wants it on release day and didn't order early, go to Apple! Then I'll go to AT&T to get mine, lol.

    I don't have an apple store where I live I would need to take a plane to get to the closets one. Althought I do have an AT&T store in my town I called them and they said they were going to be getting in 200 phones.

    AT&T and everyone else gets their stock from Apple.
    Good chances are Apple will have more stock of their own product than the resellers.

    I would get to the AT&T store early. Alternatively, just order one and wait as I am sure there is nothing wrong with your current phone that it can't last a couple of weeks.

    There's no difference. It's all controlled by Apple & they make sure the customer has access to order from any Apple Reseller.

    I buy everything direct from Apple.com except iPhones. Those I buy from AT&T since they're my carrier and ship FedEx next day by 10:30 am free.

    Last year I just stayed home till 9:50am, signed for the phone & off to work I went. Mine came the day before release day as did many others ordered by guys I work with. We have all been very happy with AT&T.
