    I apologize if this has been covered here before, but I wanted to recommend the Apple Store app. Apple officially released their "Store" app this morning, and when I just downloaded it I had no trouble pre-ordering.

    Is it this likely to work for everyone? Probably not, but I figure if it can help a couple people with the frustration that I felt, then its worth it.

    I tried that when the Apple store online was down and the yellow sticky note came up. What do you know? It came up on the app as well. :mad:

    Just pre-ordered my iPhone 4 with ease using the new Apple Store app

    I installed it, and went through the menus quickly, entered the last four of my SSN and billing zip code for AT&T, and made my reservation in minutes.

    Anyone else having luck with this?

    I did the same thing, however, have you received your confirmation email yet? It has me at $599.00 for a 16gig! Not sure what to think

    Yes, just made my reservation, however the confirmation email shows it at the unsubsidized $699 price.

    Hopefully that gets corrected.

    Damn. I had not been able to pre order online since 3 AM, then I went to At&t, and even their system was down.

    I downloaded this app and pre-ordered in about 15 seconds flat. Keep trying, maybe your luck will change!

    When you reserved on the app did it show the 199/299 pricing?

    The app will only let you do in-store pickup, right?

    The app crashes every time I try after putting in my AT&T info.

    The app showed $299 after I entered my info, so I'm not gonna worry about it. I'm sure it'll be $299 when I get there.

    That's a terrific app. I just wish I had an iPhone with me to do so.

    Yes, because I just tried it and that is the only option I got. I am not sure I can be there on launch day though.

    Reservation is the same as a pre-order? I don't think so?

    Semantics. It says "book now and we'll hold your phone for you".

    Yes, I apologize for not specifying. It only allows you to do in store pickup as far as i know.

    I hope the crashing subsides. I guess I just got lucky. I hope you all find a way to get through!

    Hrm... I can't imagine picking up my phone on the 24th at a AT&T store, going to be SO chaotic. I want it sent to my house, dang it.

    Haha, yeah I hear you. I figured since its reserved I'll just go after work in the evening, should be slightly less chaotic than the early morning.

    Not semantics at all. Pre-order means you are CHARGED and it can be picked up or shipped. Reservation means that you have the right to wait in line on launch day.
