    I don't know what to tell you. I have to believe more than 10 people came into each Best Buy today wanting to pre-order a phone, and are on the list ahead of you. You might as well still get on the list, but good luck in trying to be top 10 at this point, especially after today's meltdown.

    I say this. Pick your store, be it AT&T, Wal-Mart or Best Buy or even Radioshack, and go there on the 24th. I think Radioshack is gonna be a good place to go, assuming they get phones in (and I'm sure they'll know before the 24th), because not that many people are 'Shack' fans. Less fans = less line.

    When I got the 3G, I went to the AT&T store and was somewhere around number 50 in line, and was able to get one. I doubt you're completely SOL.

    iPhone 4 Pre-order FAQ

    Will Best Buy® take pre-orders for the iPhone 4?
    Yes, but only for the iPhone 4 16GB Black (SKU: 1038865) and iPhone 4 32GB Black (SKU: 1039188).

    Will Best Buy® take pre-orders for the white iPhone 4?
    No. We have stopped taking pre-orders for the iPhone 4 16GB White (SKU: 1039203) and iPhone 4 32GB White (SKU: 1049294). We stopped taking pre-orders for the white iPhone 4 after Apple stopped taking pre-orders to prevent customer disappointment if inventory is not available.

    What if I already pre-ordered a white iPhone 4 at Best Buy®?
    If you have already pre-ordered either the iPhone 4 16GB White (SKU: 1039203) or iPhone 4 32GB White (SKU: 1049294), then your pre-order is still valid. You will receive your phone once the store receives the product from Apple. This may or may not be on launch day, June 24th, 2010.

    If I pre-ordered the iPhone 4 at Best Buy®, will I get it on launch day, June 24th, 2010?
    This is not guaranteed and is completely dependent on how many the store receives from Apple. Any inventory received will be used to fulfill outstanding pre-orders in the order they were placed. For example, if the store has twenty pre-orders on launch day but only received fifteen phones from Apple, then the first fifteen pre-orders should receive their phone on launch day.

    Will Best Buy® receive inventory of the white iPhone 4 on launch day, June 24th, 2010?
    This is not guaranteed and is completely dependent on when the product is received from Apple. While we have ordered all versions of the iPhone 4 from Apple, we can only sell what we are provided with.

    When will Best Buy® start taking pre-orders for the iPhone 4?
    Tuesday, June 15th, 2010.

    When will Best Buy® stop taking pre-orders for the iPhone 4?
    The pre-order offer is currently scheduled to expire on June 23rd, 2010. However, the expiration date is subject to change without notice.

    Does Best Buy® have a limit on how many pre-orders or iPhone 4 purchases each customer can have?
    Yes, limit one (1) phone per customer.

    Is there a charge to pre-order the iPhone 4 at Best Buy®?
    A $50 deposit will be applied toward a $50 Best Buy® gift card. There is no fee for the pre-order itself.

    Does Best Buy® require me to use the Best Buy® gift card, purchased at time of pre-order, towards the actual iPhone 4 purchase?
    No, the gift card sold to pre-order your iPhone 4 may be used towards any purchase at a US Best Buy® store or on BestBuy.com and does not need to be used at the time the iPhone 4 is purchased. The customer does not need to present the $50 gift card at point of sale to purchase the iPhone 4.

    What is the price of the iPhone 4 at Best Buy® with new 2-year activation?
    $199.99 for 16BG Black (SKU: 1049078), $299.99 for 32GB Black (SKU: 1049087), $199.99 for 16GB White (SKU: 1049236), $299.99 for 32GB White (SKU: 1049245).

    What is the regular price of the iPhone 4 at Best Buy®?
    $599.99 for 16BG Black (SKU: 1049078), $699.99 for 32GB Black (SKU: 1049087), $599.99 for 16GB White (SKU: 1049236), $699.99 for 32GB White (SKU: 1049245).

    Will Best Buy® allow me to switch which particular iPhone 4 my pre-order is for?
    Yes, assuming the pre-order is still open and not expired. Please bring your pre-order receipt into the store your pre-order was made at for further assistance.
