    So I just stopped by my local ATT store to get as much information as I could on weather I'd have to camp out in this terrible weather or not for my iPhone 3gs. I preordered it on June 9th. The man at the store said I would NOT have to camp out just simply show up between 7am-9am and they'll have it for me. No waiting in crazy lines or worrying about them not having it. Now i know this man works for ATT but with all of these rumors and hype going on I still have my doubts. Was anyone else told this by ATT??? I did receive an email from ATT today that my iPhone had arrived at the store.

    theres still going to be a line for PRE-ORDERED iPhones from AT&T, but you will get your iPhone since you paid for them.. so no worries you just gotta wait in line if you arrive late :)

    So basically as long as I show up before 9am I'll have my phone? I dont mind waiting in the pre order line. I'm just worried the people that "pre ordered" yesterday are going to try and get their hands on mine when they were not confirmed to be in store tomorrow. I'll print ATT's email i guess too along with my receipt. Any other suggestions?

    they cant get their hands on yours, everyone that pre-ordered has their own shipped box with their name on it.. so nothing goes out of the store's inventory.. the only thing that goes out of the inventory are those that does walk-in purchases

    i tried to reserve one from apple.com to pick up at my local apple store right now, but how do i know i'll be guaranteed to get one? the whole reserve process was a little unsatisfying, it was hard to tell exactly what i did? i live about an hour away i don't want to drive there and be turned away at the door

    As long as you show up by July 3rd, your phone will be there.

    There is no guarantee at the Apple stores. First come, first serve. It sounds like though they will have lots of inventory.

    Wait if you pre-order from a BM AT&T store you HAVE to be there between 7-9am to get it? That does not seem right because not everyone is able to take a day off from work. I know mine will be there tomorrow at 2:45 pm when I show up to pick it up AFTER work. Anything less is unacceptable. Not, it is supposed to sit there for up to 7 days. I'm sure it'll be fine for 8 hours or so.

    no you dont have to be there at 7am... you can get there before the store closes OR within 7 days.. dont worry guys YOUR PHONE WILL BE THERE, not unless some dumb sales rep sells your phone then i guess your out of luck on that one.

    I got an email about an hour after UPS delivered it. If you don't have an email, give your rep a call to make sure all is cool and verify their hours.
