Greetings. Please feel free to redirect or close this thread as necessary. I can't find anything on this topic. Today I was placed on a "priority list." As explained to me, I will receive an email when iPhones come in to my local Apple Store that can be purchased. I was told I will get preference over general walk-ins, and those of us on the list get emails in sequential order. Long story short, I am curious (1) how prevalent the "priority list" was in other regions, and - much more importantly - (2) when others receive "the email" letting them know they can pick up their iPhone. Here's why I'm interested; as much as I love Apple, and as excited as I am about the iPhone 4, I have a nagging hunch this "priority list" was created to pacify us out of the line we'd stood in for 8+ hours (to then find out it was sold out) with the least amount of angst and no expectation that we actually get a "priority." (And yes, I knew I took a risk when I stood in line. That's not my point. I just want to determine whether Apple gave us some sort of false hope that we stand a better chance than the next guy.) Thanks.
