    Does anyone know if there's a limit to the number of phones each person waiting in line can buy?

    For example, can I wait in line for my family and then buy 3 phones for the people on my family plan? Or what if I want to buy 3 individual plans?

    I believe it's one phone per person. I'd imagine they might make an exception for family plans, though.

    I think that they'll probably limit it even with family plans in the initial release just to satisfy the demand and customers. Since there is no subsidy, it'll cost the same to get the iPhone when you sign up or after, so probably it'll be the iPhone and then those freebie phones so you can replace the sim later hopefully.

    I don't think they'll allow a family of X on a family plan to get X iPhones, what if you're standing behind that 1 guy buying the family plan and then they run out b/c he bought X for his family, the people behind him will be quite unhappy to see that 1 guy walk out with a bag full of X iPhones for son, daughter, wife, ect.

    i believe for every girl you've slept with you are allowed to buy one. sadly, most people on this forum won't be allowed to buy even 1. :D

    Looks like you can only buy one at AT&T stores. From an email I just received from AT&T:

    So for those looking to hoard iPhones for eBay, you may have to head to an Apple store.

    You stand in line to hoard iPhones for sale on eBay and I catch wind of your plan, prepare to be beaten to a bloody pulp with my powerbook.

    i find it odd that you can have multiple iPhones on a family plan, but it's limit 1 per person to purchase. so i guess if you have a family plan with 2 lines and both want iPhones, both people need to be at the store to purchase them?

    And why would I be greedy if I have a family plan and want 2?

    Well, I read that they'll be shipping about 4 million units for the weekend, so all the eBayers will be sitting on unsellable phones. Good! :mad:

    I just got an email from at&t with a link to find a store that will sell the iPhone. The email said "one per person"

    Sorry, I should've been more clear. I am addressing all the eBay-ers.

    I'll be right there with you, but I might use a sledgehammer instead, Misery style. Lets see him walk out of the mall like that!

    Well, frankly, I don't have $1200 sitting around, so I'm going to be waiting for student loan times to get me and my partner's! I'm glad I won't have this worry.

    Why are people so weird that they must have it this instant? Wait a week, you'll live!

    So all straight women will not be allowed to buy the iPhone? :eek:

    I think it should be one per person, unless your getting a family plan (duh!). I like the idea of your entire family waiting in line. You all can spend some quality time together. :D

    Me, I'll be ordering mine online, when I can save up the money, (fingers crossed for the end of the summer) and possibly one for my mom if she wants one (and forks over the cash).
