    I reserved a 3Gs from an Apple Store on Saturday, I haven't received a confirmation about my reservation. Is this normal? what are my chances of actually getting an iphone on Friday?

    Thanks
    Go Cats!

    WHAAAAT?!!!! So you reserved it and not pre-ordered it? Are you adding a line? Did it just take your Apple ID info?

    Reason I ask is because I reserved my 3GS too and I got an email. I had no idea Apple would set one aside for you

    Were you told that by Apple? I was at first was going to reserve one for a store pick up, but after talking to Apple they made it clear that even though they are taking down your information, that it will still be a first come - first served basis. All the online "reservation" was to let you know the cost and to make the process at the store a bit faster. Apple Chat support also told me that "The numbers of orders has exceeded the first shipments to the stores." and "we are expected to not have enough on the 19th to give out anyway."

    Take what the person told me about the store not having enough with a grain of salt, but apple has made it clear that store sales are first come first served.

    Nah it was Apple id plus my social according to 1-800-My-Apple the store where I reserved is going to keep separate stock for reserves; maybe store policies differ according to where you are?

    Doesn't make sense mate...everybody and their mothers knew what the pricing was going to be; see my previous post...at least here in Delaware any one who has one reserved should get it ( perhaps my one silver lining all year since my move from Phoenix...hate this town but love the no sales tax policies)

    So true. The reason why I am waiting inline is because I want to experience the thrill. Imagine a new toy comes out and everyone has that toy and you have to wait 3 hours because FedEx screwed up. sucks
