    Yeah, it sucks, but I think once the pre-orders open up, the days will go by much faster.

    The iPhone 3G launch was an even worse wait, we had to wait over a month. From June 9th to July 11th.

    The 3G wait was the absolute worse. I agree though that once the preorders start alot of the anxiety willl be gone because you've done your part and it's up to AT&T/Apple to deliver the product on the 24th.

    Hell yeah. That was my first iPhone so the anticipation was even higher. These days, I just buy sneakers and stuff and just go motorcycle riding for hours to pass time haha. Oh, and work.

    Wonder why they cant take pre orders now? Sounds pretty easy, except for the employees answering the phones.

    Maybe because they still have to ship the phones to the stores and such, I don't know haha. Don't they still have to make the 8GB 3GS in the factories?

    This is exactly what I'm thinking. Concentrate on pre-order. I can't wait to move up from the 3g. I just want some SPEED!! Plus I'm hearing July 1st might be when 3g gets turned on where I live.

    How does the pre-order process work? Do you go to the Apple site and make an online purchase and it gets delivered on the 24th? Thanks!

    Yup, but adding a line or opening a new contract needs to be done in store. Or you can pick it up in store.

    Waiting for the original launch day was worse.
