    We’re sorry. Currently, iPhone reservations are not available. Please check back soon

    What's up with that????

    Guess they want to make sure to have a decent amount for the first-come, first-served people tomorrow morning.

    I was able to choose from different stores (I'm in the DC area if that matters).

    Got a confirmation email but no order number. Email says they will hold the phone until closing of business on Thursday. Then in small prints below it also says: "Pre-authorization does not guarantee iPhone availability at an Apple Retail Store. iPhone is sold on a first-come, first-served basis." So I still have to show up early and wait in line just so they don't run out of phones??

    I had to create a new apple ID for the third phone (for my son)...hope that doesn't create a problem when I pick them up. Still under my name....

    Mine worked now also, but I haven't gotten a confirmation e-mail. I have a bad feeling about this reserve system.

    Has anyone been able to reserve at a Verizon store?

    Hmm this might help

    I got that same error about not being able to reserve at the local Apple store. I went back a page, went forward again, and then it "reset" the location so I could pick a local store. Plugged in zip, picked the one to me, and it worked that time.

    You can't do that from what I understand. They are first come first serve the morning of the 10th...ours opens at 7am. No way I was standing out in the cold waiting in line when I can just go to the Apple store in the afternoon and have one waiting for me.

    Give it some time (took me about 20 minutes to get the confirmation number - was sweating a bit)

    It is going to be right around 0F here. Hope it keeps everyone else away. :cool: Apple store is too far away from me to consider going there.
    All the Vz stores selling iPhone 4 are opening 7am. Even one near me in a mall that opens at 10am is opening at 7am. No idea how that is going to work...
