This is not a re-post. Just what I was "officially" told by a sales rep. What I get from this is they genuinely don't know when, there is no queue so if you order anytime tomorrow it won't matter, and they are NOT worried about running out. The only thing I did not ask about was the white iPhone 4 (at&t will not carry any till later, not sure about other stores). Here's the convo.... You: Hi. It is only six hours away from the "launch date" of iPhone 4, and I have not heard an official time for when pre-orders start. Apple reps must know by now, as you guys will have to be helping out... Thomas: I appreciate your vote of confidence, but we will not know until the pre-order process is put in place. Thomas: We find things out as soon as the public does. You: so no one will know when they can pre order until it is time to pre order? Thomas: That is correct. Thomas: There is no queue in place however, so it doesn't matter when you place your order tomorrow. You: So sales reps are not worried about running out of phones? I assume Apple has stocked up well? Thomas: Since this is a pre-order, there is no need to worry about an stock or inventory. You: Ok well thank you for your help and have a "fun" day tomorrow! Thomas: I sure will!
