    Maybe AT&T will waive all $18 upgrade fees?

    Apple will get $10 iTunes gift cards?
    AT&T $10 store card?

    What are your thoughts? no chance?

    If anything, MAYBE an email that says, "We are sorry for the delay, but thank you for your business." LOL

    The best compensation would be to take your business elsewhere.

    Sense of entitlement much?

    No one owes you a thing. They're not depriving you of a product, and technically, as of yet, you haven't given them a dime since they won't charge your credit card until the phone ships.

    of course, but they gave the option for us to pre order, but apparently, MANY people are mad that they are not able to

    The only people having problems right now are 'early adopters.' That customer group is in the bag. They will come back every year to upgrade regardless of the headaches (just like this year).

    There is no financial incentive to change the process.

    We got free health care, why not free iTunes gift cards and waived activation fees too!

    We're going to be compensated by having an amazing device that's a work of art. Being able to pre-order the phone issue-free is not a right.

    AT&T and AAPL points a gun at your face and force you go through this emotional distress?

    They gave you the OPTION. Key word there. OPTION. No one is forcing you to preorder. You do not have to preorder to get the iPhone. You have the OPTION to preorder. You took that option.

    This has to be the dumbest defense of sh***y service I've ever read.

    Grats on that.

    I don't think they should have to.
    Only thing I'm mad about is that my dumb self stayed up all night trying to preorder.

    I love how everyone has this sense of entitlement these days. I like to call it the "Obama syndrome".

    OMG our society is filled with a bunch of Thin skinned entitlement people. It's a damn phone and technology is not always 100 percent. So if you got your phone ordered then what else is the matter?

    Is it really important that someone takes "Blame". Why not spend your energy buying accessories for your new iP4 or something.

    No reason we should get compensated for pre ordering but I am going to raise hell over upgrade fees AT&T charged after sending me a text saying they would be waived. Morons!

    The OP never mentioned entitlement, he said "compensated", as in for extremely poor service.

    Huge difference, I suggest you invest in a dictionary.

    Wow, people jumping all over the OP for thinking we all should get a few bucks back?

    What a bastard he is for standing up for us!!

    I would take a nice waiving of the $18 fee..would be kind of them considering signing the 2 year contract is enough of an upgrade fee.

    I will get it waived through complaining regardless
