    You mean Sam's club? They were cancelling pre-orders yesterday when they received no shipment. I don't know if that is all over, but there's a thread on it.

    Yea sams club would have been the perfect place to line up since its exclusive to members only. I was stoked when i found out Sams club sells them but then i found out they're shipment had problems or something and the lady told me they probably won't be getting them in today. I'll have my black iphone here in the next couple of hours but wanted to exchange it for a white one.

    Ergo, no line!

    Hey there is no line at Harris Teeter either. Coincidentally, they did not get any iPhones.

    Don't feel sorry for me. I am watching my iPhone being unwrapped right now. The outage only affected certain SAMs not all of them. I got that e mail too and yet here I am only moments away from walking out of here with one. There is one other person getting one as well.

    Pics of the phone and receipt or it didn't happen. BTW, does Sam's only have 16gb phone, or all sizes?

    Congrats, Velvet. I have 9 months left on my contract. Otherwise, I would have been in line with you.

    I hope it's the same situation here. I'm not an Advantage member so I have to wait until 10. My local store called last night to say they still expected a shipment either last night or this morning. They also said they'd call with the status but I haven't heard yet. Nonetheless I'm right next to the door here in my class just in case.

    Just called and they are pre-sold out. No walk ins.

    For the non believers, I guess you need a pic. This will have to do. I'm at the office now and my receipt is in my car. Feel free to call the SAMs club in Duluth ga to verify they had 10 white phones this morning if you must. So far this is my one and only picture on this phone. Waiting on iCloud to restore the rest. Good luck to those of you headed to pick one up today. The AT&T rep at SAMs is saying the outage is not limited to their stores. Other retail outlets outside of apple are experiencing the same thing and the AT&T store across the street didn't get any iPhones at all so go figure.

    I called the Sam's near my house, and they had one white 16gb AT&T. Unfortunately, I can't get by with just 16gb. I think Sam's only has the 16gb versions.
