    I just want to express how frustrated I am with Apple and the lack of the ability to order the 4g in white. This is load of Cr@p. They very easily could have delivered the 4g in white, yet they reduce supply and watch as the mass-hysteria demand shy rockets through the roof! not cool. They make a great product, and i'm all about apple for life, but they are ingenious markets, to the point where they start to upset people.

    I am also VERY angry that Radio Shack, (yes Radio Shack) had the ability to pre order white iphones for about a 1hr window....WHY THEM and no one else. And then when I questioned apple employees, they play stupid and say, they have no idea. they really need to tone it down a bit, I love em, and their a great a product, but i don't worship the holy Apple, and never will

    get over yourself Steve Jobs, you are not creating life, just an freak'en piece of hardware...

    Pretty sure anyone who pre-ordered a white iPhone through Radio Shack (or any retailer) will not get it on the 24th. Best Buy let customers pre order the white ones at first to, but have since been canceling the orders.

    Also, there's no such thing as a 4G.

    I hear ya....

    I am a bit "ify" about the radio shack, but who knows...... and Best buy canceling.. whaaat?

    Apple, who is the creator, should just come out with the facts, it's their phone and they call the shots, if the apple store cant pre-order, no one should....

    I'm also REALLY annoyed that the White iPhone isn't available at launch, so I ordered black which sorta spoils my enthusiasm for the new iPhone.

    hang in there, I am still checking out the radio shack deal. My cousin said he reserved one. And I called like 5 radio shacks and they were all on the same page. I don't think they are all just BS'ing and assuming that they will cover the demand on the day of. Radio shack also told me to check with them daily to see if they get more to pre-reserve. Sadly, i trust them and will check every day (and let u guys know)

    I pre reserved a black one, but may try for the white on the day of and get there like 5am. Apple only said they would not pre sell it. Think about it, if they were not going to give it out on the day, they would have said, no pre-order, and it wont be ready on the release, they are a shady bunch of mo - fo's and it's not fair!

    I, too, am upset about not being able to pre-order or reserve a white iPhone. However, I'm even more upset that Apple isn't telling us why or even confirming that they will be available on launch day. I can understand if they had a problem in manufacturing the white ones, but they could at least try to communicate with us.

    I think they will have a few white ones on the day of the release. I only say this because, they have not discounted it.

    yea...it's a pretty slim ball move, just like with the one left at the bar. I will always be loyal to apple for the superior products, but to mr Steve Jobs....
    I really have no respect for him and his pompous arrogant vice presidents. Did u see on the key note how excited he was, dude almost got a boner.
    ...always the dollars...always the dollars...

    i'm just glad I will kick the bucket in the next 60-70 years..... and not have to deal with crap like this...

    VERY UNCOOL!!!

    get over it.

    i was going to get it in white, but hey ho it's no available for some reason, an i'm sure its for a good reason.

    theres also the black iphone that you might be interested in ;)
    it's the exact same phone. different colour. can always paint it at a later date :p

    the way it i see it....black is classic colour for the iphone :) If i had the option of a red ferrari or a blue ferrari (blue being a new option) and wanted the blue one, but was told i'd need to wait longer, then i'd happily just go get a red one. still the same car :)

    i can understand if you did order a white one, and was then told it wouldn't be available until a later date, but thats not the case.

    stop complaining, and get a black one or wait. thats your two options. everyone else has had to decide :)

    it's not that um upset about not getting the white, what pisses me off is how unprofessional Apple is about. They have the abilty to tell the truth and they have said nothing. Like I said before, other stores know more than apple, let me correct myself, apple is just being A-holes and not saying a word.

    You're freaking out over a color. A color. Remember when everything was beige? No one died. Chill out. Seriously.

    Simple,, Buy a case.. Choose any color you want.

    But you do seem to be OK using a BLACK font.

    You really think they are doing this for fun? They don't need to create a demand for it by lowering the supply. There is already plenty of demand. There was probably a defect discovered VERY late in production after millions were already made. They had to start from scratch and probably have made a million more, they just couldn't promise them to be available on June 24. So why put them up for pre-order?

    OP:
    This is a really absurd post. You act as if you know the reason behond the lack of availability. I'm sure they would have sold them both if they could. Why wouldn't they? There was probably a supply issue.
