    I keep looking for this info and I can't find it anywhere. I have $250 in BB gift cards and want to use it on the iPhone.

    Just went to Best Buy. Taking pre-orders tomorrow. They said they will sell you a $50 Gift card which you in turn will use for your deposit. So possibly you would be able to just use yours?

    It doesn't look like they are going to carry the 64GB.

    Anyone know if you can preorder online, or do you need to go to the store, or can you do either? If you go online, what time does it start?

    Ok I explained it wrong they will sell you a $50 gift card to use on pickup which also gets you the pre-order.

    And they said they will have 64gb also

    So you have to do it in person? They're not doing it online? See my problem is that I am under my parents' name. I am in college in DC and they live in CT. I was going to have my phone shipped there then have them ship it to me at school. If I preorder in person, won't I a) need the account holder there or b) have to have to name on the account actually physically pick up the phone in DC?
