is it pointless to keep trying on Apple.com tonight?

    Rumors are showing that its all sold out for launch day...

    but if you want to have it after that, Apple.com is a better try than AT&T's site.

    Nope keep trying...

    I started at 4:30 am my time and finally got one at 3:45 pm... I added it to my cart and then chatted with someone at the online store. I asked if I kept trying could I add my wife's phone to the same cart. He said I could only get one phone today. I asked it I could use my wife's different credit card and login with her login, they replied "If that is what you would like to do." I came home from work and just now completed my wife's order at 6:00 pm..

    I hope everything went through ok as I have not gotten my confirmation e-mail, but I printed out the confirmation screens. Keep trying

    I used the iPhone app and reserved a 32GB in about a minute. AT&T's servers are still having trouble because the eligibility check failed but Apple continued with the reservation. This is my backup plan in case my Best Buy pre-order falls through.

    I was able to get a 32GB phone after several hours of trying on and off. It is definitely worth it to keep trying. Good luck!!!

    If you have the patience, keep trying. I lost patience after 7 hours and went to AT&T at noon to pre-order mine. I also reserved one through the apple app but honestly did not feel confident about that at all.

    There seems to be a common misunderstanding of pre-ordering vs reserving. The problem is with AT&T's servers, which isn't an issue in the case of reserving.

    No not pointless. Keep at it. You will get it eventually. As the night wears on maybe the load will lighten up a bit. I think that is how I was able to get in around 6pm -- people were leaving work and getting off their computers.

    the app is just sending me to the store to get questions answered. i went by there this morning and it was chaos. EVERY desktop, laptop, ipad, & iphone was occupied with people trying to order. the staff just kinda shrugged and apologized. this guy i met and i used our iphones and the computers there and neither one got it in an hour. so we both left....i'm still trying...

    I got through on apple.com twice tonight. First time had the wrong billing address on my AT&T account. My old address. Boy did it pain me to cancel that order after trying all day since 7am. But i got through again about a half hour later, and my iphone 4 is on the way. Keep trying!
