    Who is camping out :p? I will not be pre-ordering as I want the phone the day it is available. Is anyone with me? :cool::apple:

    If you pre-order, you can get it on launch day since it will be shipped.

    If you reserve it, you can still pick it up at launch day, with the exception of AT&T.

    Just when the iPad people started to annoy you, the iPhone people come roaring back and remind you what caused this site's descent.

    Apparently the 'Newbie Anti-defamation Rule' has been relaxed.

    Seriously, I am with the OP on this one. This forum has gone to *****. Not that there is a better one for Apple resources/info, but my god...WHO GIVES A CRAP ABOUT PREORDERING A PHONE?!

    Place your order tomorrow (or the next day, or the day after that) and have it shipped to your house/place of employment/apple store/at&t store and pick it up on the 24th.

    Is there really anything worth discussing here?! Yet there are dozens upon dozens of threads for this very topic. People are even camping out and taking the day off work. Hello...that's the purpose of PREORDERING. Get a life people.

    yeah, welcome to macrumors forums. It's really gone to **** since the first iPhone came out. I guess more idiots were drawn to the forums.

    My favorite is all the threads where people talk about not wanting to wait ALL DAY on the 24th for the FedEx guy to arrive and where they are considering picking it up at the store instead for this reason alone.

    I am hoping all the people on this forum are teenagers. If not, something is seriously very wrong with this generation of 20/30 somethings!

    Haha. Yeah this is how it is whenever apple releases a new toy. There should be a requirement to show each poster his age.

    So here's a question. What happens if I pre-order tomorrow for home delivery, and on the 24th, I have someone at home who can sign for it, but I go stand in line at my local retailer to get one on a first come first serve basis on the 24th?

    Will the retailer have it in their system that I already pre-ordered to have it shipped to my home and therefore can't sell me one?

    Wait... you want the phone on launch day and you are not preordering? I don't understand. Your odds of getting first dips on launch day are a lot better than camping out. Why would you want to waste time camping out anyway?
