    Order online. Apple stated today it's starting to ship iPhones to webstore customers early.

    order on ebay. it'll ship right away and you'll probably save money- and help the ebay re-selling losers lose it.

    Yeah man, I'm in SLC and possible a huge idiot. Actually I am without a doubt. I went opening night to the apple store in Gateway, and didn't get one. Wanted to sleep on it. But couldn't sleep because I was thinking about it... so I figured hey they'll still have them tomorrow. Nope, just measly 4 gigs. Not what I wanted.
    So I ordered online (ebay were racking up the price too much), and I'll continue to check the apple store in case I need to cancel my order.
    Good luck though, let me know if you find any!

    That makes me wonder how accurate the 'Check Availability' button is on Apple's website, because I checked it last night after they closed and it said iPhones unavailable.

    And how did they get a shipment before 10-11?

    I think that I just won because I pulled the trigger and got mine on the 2nd day. I figured we have so many tech guys here who wanted it in SLC. :):cool:

    Yes, and wanting the 4 GB phone is a good boon too. The 8 GB just go out really quick :D

    Good job. I think that if you wanted 8 GB by now, online is the way to go.

    Agreed.
    California and the East coast are going to get precedence to pretty much anywhere in the US. I doubt SLC is on the list for any major shipments in the meantime.

    I live by the King of Prussia Apple Store in PA. They still have plenty left. If anyone is interested I can do the transactions for you and send them out. You would just pay the cost for the phone, tax (since I'd have to pay it) and actual shipping costs. We can do the money through Paypal so everyone is protected by fraud.

    BTW I apologize if this is against forum rules to offer this.

    I think its ridiculous that these Ebayers are just trying screw everyone over on the price of these things. I also think it sucks that Apple didn't pass along alot of stock to alot of markets. I think this thing so cool that I am totally willing to help anyone get one.

    My wife is a HUGE Dave Mattews fan. I took her to The Dave Mattews and Tim Reynolds show in NYC. They are very rare shows and they always sell a limited edition poster tat them. People were buying 20 or 30 of these at a pop to sell on Ebay. We bought 10 and offered them to people on the DMB message board my wife belongs to for face value and postage. We just like to help.

    You are awesome. Do you live near Philly? I moved to SLC from Philly a few years ago. :)

    Nice, lovely area close to Main Line... alas, I remember lots of wonderful places to eat like Aoi's and all of the Stephen Starr restaurants like El Vez, Jones, and Tangerine :)

    However, the crime went up in downtown Philly :(... kinda hard to eat when bullets are a flying...

    I know... of course I am surprised that Mayor Street wasted his time fighting the iPhone crowds rather than the criminals in North Philly.

    Geewhiz, I was nearly nailed at Tasker Street once many years ago. I think that I will stick to the Art Museum and Rodin statues for protection.

    Love it out here in SLC! Good Mexican food too! :D

    Excellent mexican food man!
    Have you tried Blue Iguana? Possibly the best mexican food I've ever had. And at a good price too.
