    My brother was #63 at his and is getting one, he has a 5:30 appointment. At first they called and said they had gotten 60 in and weren't sure if he'd make the cut based on who had ordered which model, cancellations etc, but now he has the appointment and he's stoked :)

    They said they got in a phone for 100% of their reservations. I am still shocked. Lol.

    My local best buy had 70 in and seemed like a majority were 16gb since I was #45 and they said I could switch to the 16gb if I wanted it on release day.

    I work for a Best Buy in Texas. Nearly all of the stores in our area got exactly seventy 16GB phones.......and ten 32GB models haha.

    Did Best Buy take $50 from you guys for the preorder? A mobile rep there only filled out a form with my name, phone number, etc. I have no idea what number I am, I just hope my info was taken down correctly and isn't overlooked. Apparantely there was something involving $50 and a gift card, too.

    Yes, I just used it to pay for the phone. Even if I decided against buying it (which was a no-brainer, but still), I have a $50 BB GC. Oh no. lol
