    I'm a 3G owner that got it a few months after release, and I skipped the 3GS. I'm eligible to get the 4 and I want it, but this is the first time I'm interested in a day one purchase so I'm not very well versed on how well this works.

    1. I know I missed pre-orders, is there any chance of getting one on the morning of or within a week of release? I don't want to camp out, but I wouldn't mind going early in the AM, if I would even have a chance by then.

    2. Does it matter if I buy from Best Buy, Apple, AT&T, they all should offer me the same upgrade and pricing correct?

    3. There are three people on our plan, but I'm the primary on the account, can I get phones for all three of us or must they be present?

    4. Any additional tips?

    Thanks. I don't mind waiting a little bit, but don't want to wait until July 14th...

    1. Sad to say it but...eBay.
    2. It does not matter.
    3. Are you the primary account holder?
    4. Pray

    If you're the primary account holder, you should be able to upgrade all of the lines. There may be a limit on the number you can buy though.

    That's what I'm wondering. If I bring everyone we can buy right?

    I'm pretty sure the number you can buy is a per person limit, not a per account limit.
