    If you've managed to be persistent enough, or lucky enough, to actually succeed in placing an iPhone 4 pre-order, this T-shirt is for you! :D

    Edit: NO, I'm not selling them! Just a bit of levity for the day! :)

    So, nobody else feels like they earned some sort of shirt (like above) today?

    It was an epic battle of the credit card-wielding consumer against the giant corporations! Everyone that was successful should wear their "win" on their chest! :)

    I'm the only Apple geek in my crowd so no one would get it either. It is pretty funny though. You should make that your avatar here!

    I ordered mine on AT&T.com at 5:30AM CST. No problems at all.

    I had not received my E-mail confirmation for my order through the Apple Store dot com so I just called up and waiting on hold to talk to a rep. The very nice young lady assured me that my order was good, that my credit card payment/authorization had been approved, and that the system was really bogged down and some E-mail confirmations might take up to 24 hours.

    While we chatted, she said that she has not had the ability to manual input a pre-order for the entire day. The system was simply too loaded down with traffic. She further told me that I got lucky when I decided to place my order between 5:30am and 6:30am (pacific) because that was a period with the least server problems during the day. I explained to her that I had actually started trying at 1am, gave up at 2:30am, got some sleep, and then tried again at 6:15am (which went through on the first try).

    At any rate, I feel like I earned such a shirt and, if I was going to an Apple Store to pick up my iPhone 4, I'd definitely wear the shirt to the store that day! :)

    I survived, I was doing the ordering like 20 times trying to get the order through and finally at 7 this morning and got my conformation email like 5 min ago

    Guess they'd have to make one that says I didn't survive.. cause I never got through online.

    Had to just go to AT&T and they were able to do my pre-order within minutes.

    The pale, skinny body isn't really helping the geekiness of this ;)

    The shirt should say, "I tried ordering a white iPhone 4 but all I got was this lousy t-shirt."

    That's a different shirt thread! :D

    I'm seriously thinking of having one of the above shirts made for my personal use. We've got places in the mall that make these while you wait. I think it would be a hoot. Granted, not everyone would "get it". But there are thousands of people who would. :)

    i'd wear that shirt, even if a lot of my friends didnt get it. Plus then if you ever went anywhere in public im sure somebody would mention it and you'd get some attention. It's a good conversation starter lol.

    I find the shirt to be pretty funny.

    I think the shirt would be successful if we could pre-order it for June 24th... wait...
