    Just wondering how many cancelled an existing order online today with Apple because you picked one up in person @ AT&T?

    Thinking about it. Just worried my order will go to "preparing for shipping" in the amount of time it takes me to get one and then cancel my order.

    FWIW, I just called around to 3 AT&T stores in the area, and the Apple store. All out of stock.

    I'm just going to continue to be patient.

    I did.

    I had my pre order in since the 22nd. I went into at&t this morning, and went to purchase my phone. While the guy was going thru the screens, a red X popped up saying he couldn't sell me one because of a pending sale. We opened up apple.com and cancelled the pre order and after a few more attemps (about 5 minutes lapsed), at&t's system synced with apple.com and my order went thru.

    I was sweating thinking I waited 2.5 hours and wouldn't walk out with a phone.

    Moral of the story, once you confirm at&t store has them, cancel your pre order before you drive there so you can avoid issues!

    Thanks for the insight everyone. I was hoping to see more so my July 14th ship date would get pushed up! We don't have an Apple store here and with only one AT&T store on the island it was a little crazy there yesterday.
