    According to a guy on the ATT forums who says he is an ATT employee says that ATT preorder time starts at 12 p.m. Pacific Time.
    His id is Wilcre.:D

    Hmmm. I'm not refering to you but the employee that gave you that info.
    After reading many threads here I have lost trust in what AT&T employees are relaying.
    I'm not saying all AT&T employees are misinforming people but most are. Just an FYI. Take that with a grain of salt.

    Although 12 pm or am should be used to describe noon or midnight 12 pm
    means noon.

    Yeah, I don't get it either but that's what he said.
    We'll have to wait and see I guess.

    Actually the post was for 12pm PST so I asked the following just to confirm.

    Just a quick question? You do know that the US has something called Daylight Saving Time so 12 pm PST is not currently correct so would you like to update that time?

    12 pm PST = 1 pm PDT or do you really mean 12 pm PDT !!!

    He means Noon tomorrow, whether its PST or PDT is just overthinking this. I doubt he's trying to make this into a puzzle to solve.

    I think he may indeed work for ATT since he is confusing! :D

    When you preorder, do they just put a $1 hold on your credit card to make sure it is valid or do they check and see if you have the $499 "in my case" on your credit card? I get paid this coming up friday and will have plenty of $$$ then, right now I do not have the $500 in my debit/credit card. Do you think I will be OK giving them that CC# even if it doesn't have the full amount at the time of preorder?

    I call BS. Best Buy just announced their preorders start at 7am tomorrow. Why would AT&T start so much later, especially considering the AT&T store here opens at 9:30?

    Yeah, I've seen him post a lot of very helpful posts so I dunno.
    He's still being foggy about it.

    7am is for the launch, not for the preorder.

    they are going to put the entire 499 on hold then when they ship it they will charge you another 499. so you have to have at least a grand available on your credit card or you will be SOL.

    Now on another thread he said he just got the word from ATT and it 12 A.M. PST which is still weird since the pacific is on daylight but whatever.
    I still think he means midnight tonight.

    Actually, midday PST seems realistic. My guess is 10 or 11 AM PST.

    With all these retail stores having the launch, it seems that Apple may have geared up with a large number of phones ready for delivery. Maybe more than they ever had. It's not like this is the first time they've done this. I wouldn't worry too much about Apple running out of phones to cover the first day of pre-orders.
