I waited hours at the AT&T store and all I got was this crappy t-shirt

    :) I don't need another T-shirt...Ed Hardy, DKNY and the Gap take care of me well in that department.

    All I want on launch day is the iPhone 4 in my hot little hands.

    I do love the "insider" info, though. Thanks!

    It does not say that customers get the shirts? Just that employees can not wear them until the 24th.

    Because every one should support AT&T, right?

    It says it's to be handed out to employees. It doesn't say customers.

    You do realize this is only for AT&T employees right ?

    The title of this discussion makes it sound like they are handing them out to customers.

    Yup, Tara...This is definitely an employee only thing.

    I seem to remember during one of the other roll-outs, Apple offering some free gifts to the first people in line at some of the stores (aside from the little iPhone bag which, oddly enough, created the need for a thread on here the other day about "iPod bags" LOL

    the shirt is for the workers to wear on the launch day it is not a free gift with purchase.

    Sometimes I think it's funny how many times we see the same reply to a post!

    Yeah, I knew that. The question was supposed to be my question asking voice as in, "You do know they are not for us, right?" :)

    I know, Tara. :)

    It's so hard to decipher intent on here sometimes. I was agreeing with you.

    I have been known to charm promotional T-shirts off of employees' backs at times over the years...i.e. at Bloomingdale's. ;)

    OMG..Geckotek...THAT made my day...LOVED IT...

    She got EXACTLY what she deserved...For that split second when the voiceover said that she ran into an obstacle, I was hoping that they had run her credit and found that she did not qualify for an account...LOL

    You know what would be awesome? If they gave away little snow globes like Macys or some store did/does on Black Friday. Inside the globe could have had a little icon of the iPhone. This year could have been number four and each would have had the year's current iPhone inside. :eek:

    That would DEFINITELY be awesome. :)

    We know, however, that they (Apple and ATT) have us exactly where they want us...salivating like Pavlov's dogs over each new iPhone...so they figure, "Why give them anything?" LOL

    Ain't it the best??? I love how they call her Miss Piggy.

    WHO waves around $100,000 in cash while rolling around in an SUV anyway?

    Highland Park Housewives :rolleyes:

    Not sure why she said $100,000. She had $16,000. I think she thought she could sell $16,000 worth of iPhones for $100,000.

    So is AT&T changing their globe design and colors? Or is this just some gimmick for the new release only?

    How long ago? I'm here now. Drove past that store twice about an hour ago to grab some food.

    Are they sure they'll have enough tees for all customers?
