    Just as iOS 4 went live a short time ago, Apple sent out emails to U.S. customers who placed iPhone 4 reservations for in-store pickup on Thursday when the device launches.

    The email includes a confirmation of the day and time, as well as the location where the reservation has been made. Those with reservations are also reminded to bring a photo ID, their Social Security number, and a debit or credit card, and customers transferring from another carrier are asked to bring their existing account number to enable the transfer process.

    Apple also notes that some customers received original confirmation emails citing incorrect pricing, and refers customers to Apple's support site to check with AT&T's servers to confirm correct pricing eligibility.

    Does anyone know if Business accounts are still being directed to AT&T for Purchase? I have a reservation at the Apple store for iPhone 4, but 2 years ago for the 3g I was directed to the AT&T store for purchase.

    Can't get through to Apple on the phone to ask that question, wondering if anyone has had better luck.

    I'd be glad to take all that with me, but for some reason Apple has no record of my reservation and I never got any confirmation. They said someone would look into it (last Friday) and I should expect a call back by the 24th :mad:

    I reserved it, but never got a confirmation. I preordered one and it should be here "by noon June 24th."

    My email said Thursday.

    I was also able to check and make sure that Apple saw that I have an early upgrade price on my FAN account.

    Now I'm just hoping I will be able to get them to upgrade to a 32GB because I only reserved a 16. The guy behind me did it last year for the 3GS and I know some people down at my Apple store so I think i'll be fine.

    Mine is still for Thursday. Here's my whole email (with location info redacted). I like how it says "don't forget to pick your iPhone 4." I bet not many people who braved the online mayhem last Tuesday, often spending hours just to complete their reservation, will be forgetting to pick up their new iPhone!

    Yup, got mine!

    Now I have multiple iPhones reserved... "just in case."

    Interesting... On the 15th, I made numerous attempts to pre-order an iPhone via Apple's website, but was not successful until after midnight. During one of my attempts during the day, I had gotten to the point where the website was saying it could not process my pre-order but I could reserve a phone at my local store. So I went ahead and did so. But I never received any kind of confirmation notice that I have a phone reserved.

    I later went ahead and pre-ordered a phone, but it won't ship until July 2nd.

    So, how do I confirm that I still have a reservation? If I have one, and if I choose to go pick one up on Thursday morning, will I be able to cancel my pre-order?

    Hope it's not a rerun of the ordering process for you chumps that have to go to the store to get it. I am getting flashbacks of the buying experience of the 3G and it scares me. Glad mine is coming to my doorstep.

    Got mine too. Good to see in the body of the text that it will be held until the close of business day on the 24th. :)

    I am not sure if a Corporate account (with FAN) is a Business account. I have a corporate account and had reserved an iPhone 4. The reminder mail I got asks me to go to the Apple store only.

    hmm so since mines reserved.. u really think i should "camp out" or show up earlier than 7am?

    i figure as long as i show up around 7am. i should be done at the latest by 9...

    the store isn't that big... what do you guys think? or what are yall doing??

    I'm in the same boat as you. I'm guessing my reservation (despite saying "We'll see you then!") never actually went through. So now I'm likely hosed and facing getting one in a month (or whatever the new reservation date is now).

    I was told that this is still the case. I too have a business account (discount through my employer) and was told by an Apple Store genius that I'd still need to go through AT&T, which I did for the iPhone 4.
