    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.
    Apple

    When and where do I order: At any Apple Store tomorrow at opening or on Apple's website
    When do I get it: On the 24th, at the Apple Store at which you reserved it, or shipped to your house or business.
    When do I pay: On the 24th when you pick it up
    AT&T

    When and where do I order: At AT&T's site or In-store at any iPhone-selling AT&T retail location starting tomorrow at opening
    When do I get it: on the 24th, at that AT&T location or shipped to your home or business (it'll arrive on the 24th).
    When do I pay: In full tomorrow when you pre-order
    Best Buy

    When and where do I order: In-store at any Best Buy location starting tomorrow at opening
    When do I get it: On the 24th, during an appointment they'll call you to set up a few days before
    When do I pay $50 tomorrow, which goes to a gift card redeemable toward the full price paid on the 24th.
    RadioShack

    When and where do I order: In-store at any RadioShack location starting tomorrow morning

    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.
