    Some things to note:
    • All of the locations below offer pre-order, starting tomorrow, except for Walmart, which will just have the new iPhone on launch day.
    • Apple.com is the only place to pre-order online. Update: Apparently you can pre-order online at AT&T starting tomorrow as well.
    • AT&T and Apple are the only two of the bunch that sounded confident that you could get your iPhone 4 shipped to your house on the 24th, saving you from potential soul- and body-crushing line experiences on launch day.
    • Best Buy's $50 down payment is in the form of a gift card, so if you change your mind between tomorrow and the 24th, you won't be out any cash.
    • Prices, as previously stated, are $199 for 16GB and $299 for 32GB for the upgrade eligible; $399 and $499 respectively for an early upgrade.

    Unfortunately, the AT&T pick-up for preorders is the 25th, not the 24th. I was told this by a sales rep.

    This happened last year. For some reason, AT&T doesn't give preorder customers the advantage. Anyone standing in line the morning of the 24th can pick one up, but not someone who has preordered.

    Thats not what happened with my AT&T store. I am pre ordering from AT&T store. Paying it off fully tomorrow, they said when I pick it up they will also upgrade swap to my line since I am using another family member's upgrade.
