    A co-worker of mine did a reserve at RadioShack and mentioned this morning he has yet to hear from them.

    RS is beat on the preorders... I would go a different route unless you got a pin.

    Thats awsome.. when I talked to my Radioshack, they said they were starting their preorders at 1pm on Tuesday. I got there at 12:55, 1st one there, no line at all. He put my info in and entered it at 1:01 and the system would reject it and not give a pin. He tried a good 15 times for me and assured me if anyone else came in after me that he would again run mine 1st before theirs to see if it went it. He was not able to get one to go through all day. So as of now I am 1st on their "pencil list" and he would call me if they magically got any in and the 1st one was mine. I am by no means relying on this.

    What time did you go and get your pin? Did all Radioshacks start at 1pm or was my store just lazy and set their own time?

    My friend manages a Radio Shack store and said he will probably have some info about how many phones they will get on Tuesday or Wednesday. I'm not sure if it's the same for all of them or not.

    Yea i heard they weren't getting any info until wednesday, and also rumor has it the pins really don't mean anything at all. I would go to a best buy early on thursday instead.

    I did, number 3 or 4 on the list. The guy said I should be fine if I show up at 6 a.m. when it opens, lol. My backup plan is the AT&T store in the same plaza. They called me and said it's first come first serve, no lists or pre-ordering. He wasn't sure what time they open, 7 or 8 he said probably.

    The guy at my store I would think would tell me if they are getting any at all, if he can comfirm he has a black 32 gig for me late wed and I know its there, then ill go there. If he cant tell me late wed that my phone is actually in the store then im heading too apple store early like 1am.

    I guess it will all depend where you live, Texas area (R.S. HQ) will definitely have it as well as new york and stuff. But my friend works at radioshack and they already have the sku's (fyi they confirmed only black will be available at launch lol) and not a single store in there 25 store district is getting a 32gb and only 2 stores are getting the 16gb(only 2 each). Keep in mind thats the info as of yesterday so that may change soon. Hopefully, so i can get mine.

    I'm not too hopeful that Radio Shack will be getting much stock at all, but I really hope they do, because my friend is going to hold one for me. :D

    What I thought was pretty odd was that when I went to Radio Shack today, the employee said they would have the iPhone 4 available on a first come first serve basis on the 24th since they didn't take pre-orders.

    The RS I pre-ordered from just took my name and number and info down and when i asked how many they said they were expecting to get, the lady told me that is the whole reason for taking down people's names so they can get a count of how many to order. I was like the 30th person to order so I and really doubting i'm gonna get one on Thursday but they are supposed to call me tomorrow or Wednesday to tell me what's up.

    Little Rock, Arkansas. Sorry. I'm kinda hoping that since we don't even have an Apple store in the state of Arkansas, Apple is gonna be generous with their supply here to the retail stores..

    im number 6 on their call list at mine. Hopefully they get in at least 10-15 phones. With only 6 people interested from that store still, im sure there wasnt more than 2 or 3 pre orders, if any

    I'm number one at my store. I was originally on a pre-pre-order list. They called me to set up the pre-order. He asked which model I'd like, and address, phone number, etc. He then printed out a receipt.

    I never was given a pin, but I'm number one at the store? I don't know what to think. Maybe they just didn't give me the pin. I'll call tomorrow to see what's up.

    Hey I am from Little Rock as well! I did the pencil pre-order at the same Radio Shack on Bowman. They gave me the same story and told me i was number 21. Im still strategizing my game plan. I can decide if i should sit out early at AT&T, take a chance at Walmart, or go early to Radio Shack. Im pretty sure Best Buy is out. We dont have a lot of options here in Little Rock.
