    Well, looks like it would have been easy to get the 4S if I'd been so inclined. Once the store was open there were no refresh times. Is this the quietest launch of an iPhone ever?

    Seriously..? Sprint was brought down already, Verizon running slow, AT&T is dying, and the Apple store is dying. I wouldn't be surprised if this is a VERY good launch.

    I can't get the Apple store website to even work correctly. Looks like it's starting to be a repeat of last year.

    OMG THE 4S IS SO EASY TO GET!!

    All sites are down/sluggish, stop being mad that you're not getting it.

    I'm expecting numbers to be similar if not better than last year.

    With no intention of getting the phone why would you bring up the page and keep refreshing it?

    That is a potential symptom of a mental disease or defect.

    6 tries so far.

    "We are experiencing extremely high volume. Confirmation of your order may take up to 1 minute. Please wait..."

    "We are unable to complete setup online due to high volumes. Please visit an Apple Retail Store."

    >.<

    I'm going to keep trying.

    The 4S will, without a doubt, be the best selling iPhone as of yet. Remember that people are spread around on four different websites as opposed to the normal two.

    Are you joking? This is the worst launch ever. I can't even load any pages. Apple store or AT&T.

    Really? I've tried every possible method to order and still nothing. Except changing carriers maybe.

    Are you kidding? Last year took maybe 3 minutes. This year I've been trying for at least 30 minutes and keep getting errors.

    Maybe it's because I was in the UK. Perhaps the US store was much busier.

    Got through to the online order the first try using Safari on my iPhone, which is surprisingly easy. Didn't put through the order though. I'll wait for the 4 inch screen iPhone next year.

    AT&T was working just fine when I pre-ordered mine around 1:00 AM.

    I had no problem with the UK store earlier, and it looks like it's not having any problems atm. So perhaps you are being a bit harsh on the OP?
