    went to my Verizon store and I was legible, preordered a 32GB black iPhone 4S. Its coming to come on Oct 21st.

    Never knew they still have preorders left but cool.

    Anyone one getting their iPhone 4S earlier? or later?

    well they have pre-orders, but won't come on launch day since those are sold out.

    I'm getting my iPhone 4S in a month or two after things settle down. I will be going to an Apple store, simply because the experience there is superior to other stores.

    I ordered mine at noon yesterday and it says it's shipping from the 24th to the 31st. What the heck?

    U guys should try your luck going in to the stores on Friday instead of pre ordering now.

    Yeah, I think they're going to have loads and loads of phones at the stores, especially with Apple adding a whole slew of new stores, renovating old ones, etc. They're certainly happy to sell a million or so iPhones online with preorders, but they are making a big retail push so probably have hundreds of thousands of phones to sell in stores, maybe even another million.

    I am very interested to hear actual sales numbers next week.

    No thanks. Why should I take a day off work and try my luck in store with no guarantee when I can preorder it online and know for sure it will get to me on or soon after launch date.

    This has never happened before. What makes you think it's going to happen now.

    I seriously doubt it. As always before there will probably be limited supply and there will be a lot of people who won't necessarily find the model they want in stock.

    ----------

    If you can tell us for fact then you should be able to provide solid evidence to back that up. If you can't then you can't say for fact that is the case.

    i do have evidence as per i work for a certain company that will be selling the phones on launch day. We had a conference call in the morning Friday before sales started and were briefed with this: Stores will be receiving unprecedented amounts of inventory for the 14th that's why they pushed the pre-order people back 2-4 weeks for delivery. Last year they put more into the pre-orders and the stores had shortages. Take it for what its worth.

    That's not evidence but just your word. It doesn't mean anything as anyone here including myself could say the same thing.

    I went once, It was ALOT of fun! The apple employees came outside to the line and gave out bagels and stuff. I also got to meet a lot of cool people.

    Give it a try!
