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

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

    Not for me. I got through on AT&T in one try out of hundreds on Apple.

    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.

    I would keep trying if I was you!! I don't know how much longer apple will guarantee a June 24th delivery.

    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 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!
