I tried for hours to get through on apple.com. I finally gave up and went to Best Buy and got my 32GB black pre ordered there with a $50 deposit. When I got home I checked on apple.com again and got another error message, but had the option to reserve for pick up at the Apple Store. Since they weren't charging my card at that time, I reserved one there too. The Best Buy people assured me they would have my iPhone on the 24th, but just incase it's nice to have a back up. Anyone else do something similar? I don't know how anyone got through on apple.com. I must have tried at least 100 times.
