I just pre-ordered at my local Radio Shack. I totally forgot to wake up in time to order online and i can't wait in line on Friday morning, which is what I had done in the past. I really don't want to wait 2 weeks and I don't want to ship to my home since i will not be at home. Does anyone have any experience buying on launch day at Radio Shack? The sales woman at Radio Shack said that I was the first one to come in and pre-order at 10:45 am. I get in the area at about 8:50 am and they open at 9am, so i am planning on swinging by at opening regardless of whether i receive a call or not. The paperwork that i received clearly stated that i was not guaranteed to receive it on launch day and that they would be called by my local store when my phone came in. We'll see how it goes i suppose. I had a somewhat similar situation for the ipad 2. It was sold out everywhere and there were big lines every morning at Apple Stores to try and get one. I literally walked into a target at 9:30am and picked up an ipad with zero wait or issues. It was the only one that they had received the night before.
