    I am planning to buy a 32GB Black iPhone 3G S tommorow and have a personal shopping appointment at the Apple store tommorow at 10:30 AM. Do you think they will still have any in stock by then or should i wait in line earlier?

    I live in Toronto and the Apple store is located inside Yorkdale Shopping Centre.

    I think my local AT&T store will probably sell out again.

    I'm surprised frankly that you got a personal shopping appointment on launch day. The Apple store in Charlotte said they were sold out meaning they expect to have no stock at all left tomorrow based on the pre-orders they've received.

    I plan on getting to the mall by 6am so I can be at the Apple store at 7am when the doors open.

    probably, but you never know, particularly with at individual stores.

    i wouldn't be surprised if they had half a million phones in their stores alone this weekend.

    apple stores

    will have probably more than people think. AT&T of course is limited but people are mistaking this year for last in several ways:

    a) people are getting units sent to their homes
    b) Apple is sending inventory based on estimated "reservations"
    c) Most upgraders will wait and not pay an extra $200

    Put it all together with this economy and you will find many Apple Stores doing fine on inventory through the first day and weekend.

    No worries here in NYC. The only decision where to go. Will probably try AT&T in the neighborhood but no expectation.

    ????

    I can tell you, I am currently waiting at my local apple store and the manager said that she was very surprised by the number of reservations they got. She said there were MANY.

    With Apple and AT&T doing pre-orders I don't think so.. I do think they'll sell out over the course of the weekend, but not Friday alone.

    At least in the US they didn't take any personal shopping appointments for tomorrow, I would check the date you booked it for and then call Apple to make sure you actually have an appointment tomorrow, because I would seriously doubt it.

    You're already at the Apple Store!?

    I agree with this, but at my local store people got turned away at the end of the day because the line was still out the mall door. Actually the line was out the mall all weekend till they ran out.

    There's no skin in the game, so I wouldn't be surprised if a many if not most reservations don't get picked up. Somehow I got a reservation while looking after the keynote and I never intended to go there, and there's no way to cancel

    Man i hope not. I didn't bother with the whole pre order because im not some1 that HAS to have it. Granted now thats its night before I do hope I can snag one somewhere tomorrow.

    QUESTION. Im lucky enough to have an ATT and Apple store by my house. If I need to go to apple, Can I use my ATT upgrade to buy it there? Im doing an upgrade swap btw.

    OP, I know how you feel, it really sucks that we Canadians weren't able to preorder or reserve. Fortunately for me, I work for Rogers so was able to have my manager hold a 32GB White for me. Employees aren't allowed to purchase an iPhone until July 20th, so I'm just having my dad come with me to put it under his name for the first month lol.

    Yup

    Yeah, I have been first in line for all iphone launches at my store. My business partner and I have started developing apps so we plan on working through the night. I have fun hanging out and have nothing better to do. Sleep is over-rated. LOL

    Yes

    Yes, I am doing that at the apple store. It is your best bet, they have MUCH more stock.

    Have fun with that. My apple store is inside the mall, so I don't see the point in camping outside the mall. The mall opens when it opens. I doubt the mall would appreciate campers anyways, probably see it as a security risk.

    yea if you weren't one of the first 10 people to pre-order @ an AT&T store, I would say your best bet is the Apple Store. They're suppose to have thousands in stock ready to pass out like hotcakes.

    You're forgetting, the original 1G iphone owners are up for an upgrade and there's LOTS of them.

    Oh I know! Even better is when I do come in, I get to see the faces of all the customers wanting a white 32GB thinking that it was already sold out since we are only getting 2 (1 of which is mine), and I just come in and say hey, I'll buy mine now hahahaha. They're gonna be fuming! :D
