    I'm stalking as I know the moment I place a Direct Fulfillment order that I will suddenly get the option to purchase one as a walk in as per Murphy's Law...

    I DFed it last night. Im tired of the driving/calling.

    Its more worth my time to sit at home and click 'Track' 6 times a minute :)


    for real though, ill get mine probably before a stalker will @ att.

    It sounds like ALL iPhones will be used for DF orders first. I finally broke down after going to 3 ATT stores and my local Apple store. You can still be just as obsessive as stalking by checking order status every 3.5 mins, but you won't use up all your gas. :)

    Good luck to all you stalkers, I hope you find one some way or another. (Just not before I get mine) ;)

    i ordered my direct fullfilment on Monday (July 20) and recieved it today. Only took 2 days which is far better than stalking.

    got my new 16gb in my hands :)

    Well most AT&T stores are saying that they will not be selling phones until they are done with DF orders.

    If they are quoting 10-21 days for DF orders... you probably won't be able to buy an iPhone from AT&T till mid-late August, imo.

    I was #7 in line on launch day at my local AT&T store. Got black 16GB because they had no white. I told them how disappointed I was and that I would be returning it for a white.

    I stalked the store for 4 days and finally returned the black and DF for the white.

    I ordered a 16GB White on 7/16 from my local AT&T store. It Shipped by priority overnight (at no charge to me) on 7/18 and I had it in my hand 3 days later on 7/19. I had been told 10-21 days so I am really impressed with this turnaround time. I even got Saturday delivery. I don't know how this happened so fast but I am really impressed that it did.

    AT&T credited my account for the $30 re-stocking fee. They have been helpful and upstanding beyond belief. I am so happy I decided to DF
