    Ok here is the thing I am a Verizon customer and am switching to AT&T(you guys know why) and have 2 8GB iphones on DF from the AT&T store nearest my house.
    Last night I checked the nearest Apple store and they had them all in stock, me being a total dork sometimes was kinda like well its an hour and a half away and by the time I get there they will be out. So later around 3 I called the Apple store and asked if they had any in stock, he said yeah all of em so I asked him how long of a wait he said only an hour.
    Me still being a dumbass today was just like well I can wait a little for my DF. I am/was until ATT changed the site 75th at my store and ordered them on the 18th. Needless to say, might have some more waiting to do.

    So tonight I check the Apple availability and they have the one I want (2 8GB) in stock.

    So quick poll guys:
    You guys hold my future...

    You guys think I should go for it and hit the Apple store in the morning, and cancel my DF while I am there??? :p

    yeah if they have it

    Don't cancel work or anything, if they have it get in early if you can , otherwise just wait with me, i don't care to wait a little more, cuz i will eventually get and probably get over the initial excitement period and might even wonder why i waited in line and canceled work for,

    Glad you understand what I was thinking. I don't have to cancel work or anything so its nothing but time. Not to mention some of the excitement building from this waiting makes this whole process fun.

    Funny, as I type this new iphone commercial just came on to taunt me :rolleyes:

    If ATT didn't change their site, thus disabling the tools we all were using to see what place we were, I don't think I would be contemplating this.

    If you are like me, you will get it as soon as humanly possible

    I am going to have my first set of free time at 4pm on Friday for the first time in 1 month and plan on immediately getting it afterwards if any stores stay open

    Ok. Question.

    I ordered mine on the 21st (took a while to convince the lady) and mine has a 21 day ship time. SO... Theoretically... if its possible to cancel the iPhone order at the AT&T store in 18+ days when it arrives, is it possible for me to swing by an Apple Store this morning and pick up an iPhone for the same $199 price (while the other is on DF hold)? Or will I have to shell out the full price at Apple?

    Ok everybody, went to the Apple store today and waited in line for about an hour and a half and walked out with 2 brand new 8GB iphones :D

    Now all I have to do now is wait for my DF to come in so I can cancel it.

    btw got to pay 199 for each so even though I had 2 on DF I was still able to get 2 at that price. I am so glad I went to the Apple store and said FU AT&T. I had mine on DF since 7/18 so I waited as long as I could stand to.:p
