    If you didn't preorder you would have to wait even longer. So there.

    Waiting IS the entire point of preordering. It provides peace of mind through a guarantee. That's it. Not that difficult to understand.

    Waiting is also what you do after ordering. What is wrong with the kids of today? Do you order a pizza and expect someone to ring your doorbell as soon as you hang up the phone?

    Blame UPS, FedEx, your doorman, your neighbor, your GF, you dog, your fish, your hamster, but NOT Apple or the carrier!

    Preorder means you get to buy the phone before they are released.

    Pre- ordering better than waiting on line on Friday. Keep in mind no guarantee you will get it on Friday even if you wait on line.

    Nah - I tried that once. It's no longer a guarantee, just an "estimate" :(
