How often are Apple stores getting shipments of 3GS's in?

    Just curious. I ordered a phone off of Apple.com, but it's taking too long to even ship. (Ordered 5 days ago with 3 day shipping, still hasn't even been shipped). I paid for expedited shipping, not expecting to have to wait almost two weeks. So basically I've given up on that, and am hoping to just be able to go to an Apple store early tomorrow morning and see if I can snag one. Anyone know firsthand if the stores are getting restocked frequently? I've called two stores and they are tight lipped about shipment dates.

    Thanks!

    They get them daily. What I would do is call a different store in the shopping center and see what time their UPS/FedEx delivers. That will give you a good idea of when they will arrive.

    I'd also like to know this, I've had trouble finding a 32g BLK the last two days in the St. Louis area.

    Daily? That sounds good. I live in Philly, and there isn't an apple store in the city limits, so that means I'm taking a half hour train ride to the closest store in hope of coming home with a phone. I think I will just wake up tomorrow and go to the store when it opens, and stay until I get a phone. I hope this works.

    Are AT&T get the phones the same time as Apple? I reserved one at AT&T yesterday and they said 7-14 days...

    Was it Best Buy that someone had the inventory listings for?

    Would love to see this.

    And just curious, how do you know the stores get shipments daily?

    Can anyone else confirm if the Apple stores receive units every day?

    I have spoken to someone I know that works at a store

    More or less this is correct but there are times where some may not come for 2 days.

    Is there an Apple webpage that shows what stores have phones in stock like they did for the 3G launch? I haven't seen anything like that...
