    Hey all,

    I've had a Blackjack 2 for about 2 years now and my 2 year contract is up now meaning I can get the iPhone 4. If I pre-order, do I have to do it in store so I can transfer contacts and keep my number, or can I have it shipped to my house like everyone else? Will I have to pre-order through AT&T or Apple?

    Not sure about your contacts... but you can have it shipped to your door and activate it with yoru current number without a hitch.

    I wonder if there's a way I could sync my contacts with my iMac from the Blackjack

    how will I activate it with my number?

    There might be a way.

    But if you still have to manually enter them in the end... life will be much easier syncing your macbook and your iPhone. :)

    What mail systems does it support besides Exchange? Sync it to something like Gmail or Exchange. Then sync your iPhone to the same.

    They'll give you a new sim that will get activated w/ your number when you connect to iTunes.
