    First time visiting the iPhone forums =) hi

    I'm in the market for a new iPhone and I was wondering if orders were still backed up with Apple. Where did you buy yours? Ordered online? Bought at store? Are supplies still scarce?

    Kinda excited :D

    Get it from the apple store. Even tho AT&T might get it to you faster service at apple is the best.

    Waited eight days on the iWaitingList at an Apple Store. It was well worth the wait so far.

    You should add a poll with Apple, ATT, Best Buy, Radio Shack and Walmart.

    I got mine from AT&T.

    Pre-ordered at an AT&T store. If I could do it over, I'd go through apple. Returns seem simpler if you purchase through them. (I'm not returning, love mine)

    Preordered on line with Apple. Got it on Wednesday before the launch day. ;)Was going to go to the apple store the day of launch and take pictures of the people waiting in line, with the iphone 4, but I rolled over and went back to sleep.:D

    Reserved at the Apple Store on launch day, got there at 6:00 AM, & got out by 9:30 AM I believe. Not too shabby. :)

    Pre-ordered at Bay Street Apple Store on the 15th of June. Arrived 8:45am on June 23, 2010 at my doorstep...:cool:

    Pre-order is the way to go; activated at home and backup was done in a matter of minutes. Took the War Department to the Apple Store after we reserved it and ten days later it showed up and took about 15 minutes to walk out the door...

    waited in line for 8 hours on launch day at Apple. My advice is go with Apple. If for some reason you need help with it, their service is the best.

    Preordered on the 15th through AT&T and received it on the 23rd.
    My wife and I walked into a local radioshack on 7/15 and they had one 16gb. Got it for the wife.

    Ordered from AT&T online and got it less than a week later, despite being quoted 14 days.
