    Well after camping 3 hours this morning at an AT&T store because their employees were telling people they were getting a shipment today (they didn't), I decided to bite the bullet and order direct fulfillment. Of course, then I learned that you needed a major cc, so I had to run home and grab my wife's and run back.

    Here's my questions: I've read a lot of people who did the direct fulfill thing talking about overnight shipping. Is this standard for everyone? My order just says "freight" and when I asked the sales rep if it was regular ground shipping he said yeah. It's being delivered to my home if that matters... Would it get here quicker if I had it shipped to store? Was the overnight shipping just for pre-release orders or did I get screwed on shipping?

    Also, sorry for the slightly inane question, but I'm having some buyer's remorse over ordering the 16 GB instead of the 32... Honestly I doubt I'll take much video (certainly no more than 15-20 minutes worth in between syncs), and probably no more than a couple hundred photos between syncs. I have a 32 GB iPad and the camera kit, so I figure it would be sorta silly to have a phone as big as my iPad anyway. Can anyone with a 16 GB reassure me that I'm not going to be kicking myself?

    Anyone know why some people got overnight shipping from AT&T? Did they pay extra for it? Was I supposed to get overnight shipping and got screwed somehow?

    1. you waited 3 hours for a 16 gb?? you could have ordered the 29th and received it today or yesterday.
    2. All iphones shipped from ATT are shipped overnight.
    3. start kicking yourself. You will regret getting the 16 gb. It's only 14 gb essentially b/c the OS takes up 2. you put 4 gb of music and your left with 10 for apps/video/pictures. If you get it and want to exchange it. ATT makes it very difficult. You have to call and order your new 32 and pay full price $700 dollars for the phone. you will then have 30 days to return your old one. You will be credited with the 400 dollars in one to two billing cycles.
