    The in-store pickup option seems to have disappeared from the Apple site.

    Anybody else seeing this? If you can register for in-store pickup, please supply a direct link. I'm just not seeing the option.

    It seems they may have run through the stock allocated for in-store pickup...

    FWIW, here's what I did:

    1. Go to http://www.apple.com/iphone/ (This is where the "iPhone" link at the top of the main Apple page takes you.

    2. Click on "start here" under "Apple Retail Store". That takes me to: http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/shop_iphone/family/iphone

    There is no "in store pickup" option on that page. Only "pre-order" buttons, that take you through the on-line pre-order process with the faulty ATT account check.

    P.S. I was able to reserve for in-store pickup via the new Apple Store app on my iPhone. There's also an ordering option there. Gonna try that now... Nope.... "There was a problem connecting to the server Please make a reservation at your nearest Apple Retail Store, where a Specialist will be ready to help you." So, I guess I'll show up at the store on the 24th and see if they have it figured-out by then. Much rather deal with Apple than ATT any day, anyway.

    I did get a confirming email for my in-store pickup. LOL, under "Your Rate Plan" it says: "Plan includes"" (blank)

    you do know that you have to go through the pre-order process and later pick in-store reservation.

    No, I didn't know that. The pre-order process doesn't complete. I tried it. It fails in the same way when you access it through this path.

    And, there *was* a pre-order button earlier. It's gone.

    Anyway, I *was* successful reserving through the new iPhone Apple Store app. I got a confirmation email. It doesn't have either a price or rate plan. I was asked for last 4 digits of SSN and zip code, but there apparently was no validation, as it went through immediately.

    I later attempted to actually order using the Apple Store iphone app. No dice. Got the message I stated in my post.

    Perhaps they have shut-off the validation process for reservations made through the app.
