Good afternoon! So I pre-ordered the Iphone through Apple the same day it was announced. This will be my first Iphone so I really didn't know what the expect with lines, wait lists, etc. I've been paying close attention to the hype building up to the launch this Friday and as much as I WANT my Iphone 3g S asap, waiting in line 6 hours / overnight at the Apple store wasn't an option for me. I also read a lot of people missed out on the AT&T pre-purchase so are concerned they may not be able to get one on Friday. Anyways I caught on this forum that BEST BUY will be also selling them on Friday. With all the hype focused on picking one up from either AT&T or the APPLE store, I thought I'd look into it. As of Tuesday, 12-Noon PST, Orange-California, I was #14 on the list for Friday. You have to provide a $50 deposit which you gets you a $50 gift card that you can apply to the Iphone purchase or anything else in the store. From what she told me, rather than wait in line, they're going to give me a call on Friday as to when to come into the store. I spied the little pre-order sheet and it looks like I'm slotted for early afternoon Friday. Anyways, just an option for those that missed out on the Pre-order and still want one badly on Friday.
