    Anyone have a word if/when Best Buy would have this for pre-order? I called my local one and the dude was either high or something but he didn't have any idea, I tried another one and same case, no idea that a new device was ieven release today.

    wondering if anyone else have better luck or have any info.

    Not to continue the OP dumping, but WTF is up with threads that are posted as factual statements when in fact they are an f-in question sans a damn question mark.

    IPhone 3GS at Best Buy?


    That is a question.

    I'm calm, the iPhone was announced at like 2:45pm, and a few hours later this guys saying Best Buy staff is high because they don't know what an iPhone 3G S is.

    i stopped by after work and the genius behind the best buy mobile counter argued with me for 20 minutes that there was no new iphone. in addition they were still charging 199 for the 8 gig 3g

    i called another location and this guy was much more helpful. he said they were having a corporate meeting tonight to discuss it. he also said they were matching the 99 3g price and their refurbs were selling for 79 with a 1 year warranty

    my dillema is i want a 32 gig and 16 gig 3gs and i have about 350 in gift cards to best buy. if they dont have them on the 19th ill preorder the 32 gig from at&t and just pick up the 16 down the line. im just hoping they actually get them because right now they just seem clueless

    i have a feeling they wont get them on launch day which sucks because im going out of town the next week and would really love having the phone. ive been outta contract on verizon for 6 months waiting for this announcement

    I spoke to Best Buy tonight, the girl who was working there is the one who sold me my 3G 16GB in White last week. She said I could either return this one and wait until 6-16 or just bring this one in then and get the new one, especially if you bought your phone from them they are more willing to help it seems.:eek:

    Isn't the warranty/exchange "rules" less strict at Best Buy? Like pixels or whatnot?

    I'd definitely buy from there if it wasn't for the Back2School Promo.

    update

    to quick update, after talking to a few people that work there, they are going to have it but at this point they don't have the details or if they will even have them by release date.

    I just talked to a sales associate from BestBuy and she said that they would have the iPhone 3G S on June 19 just like everybody else!
