You won't be caught up in the hype. By the time you get your phone, it will be with tempered expectations, so it will meet them more readily! The ladies dig a man willing to take his time. By the time you get your phone a lot more accessories for the iPhone will be available and reviewed. You can laugh at any fatal manufacturing flaws in the first run iPhone 4. (Unless they crop up after you get your phone. In which case you may be dead as well. But everyone is laughing in heaven.) You avoid the headache and hassle of a million or two people activating their phones during the June 24th period. If you're waiting for the white one, you will be owning an even more exclusive product. Think of all the people that went trigger happy and chose black even though it would have been white other wise. The Germans were first to fight. The Americans were last. One won World War II, the other did not. You hold on to your money a little bit longer...if you collect daily interest on it, even better! Darth Vader didn't have patience. And we saw what happened to him: Hayden Christensen portrayed his youth. You can sleep in on the 24th. People who couldn't get an iPhone yet will not whisper behind your back about what a douche bag you are. So cheer up...it could be worse: Hayden Christensen could portray you! And feel free to continue the list.
