    Hey guys, I finally ordered my iPhone, but it was forced to be delivered on July 14th.

    If I change it to pickup at a store...

    I'm wondering if I can get into the pre-order line, even though I would have technically pre-ordered for July 14th pickup? I mean I have a feeling it will be so hectic that they will just do it for me.

    No. Apple has sold out of ALL preorder and "reserve" stock for the 24th. You could try the non-reserve line though.

    If you want iPhone 4 on June 24th, you will need to line up early. You are not guaranteed a phone.

    "Turn me away?"

    There are two lines. One for people who had reserved, and one for everyone else. They'll have two piles of phones; again, for reserves and for people who just show up.

    Depending on where you are, you won't even be able to get ON the line if you didn't reserve a phone. Some stores will make sure you reserved before letting you get on line.

    I have a feeling that the iPhone 4 delivery day is going to be a BIG DEAL at the store. I got one reserved at the Jacksonville store but likely will not pick it up as FedEx delivers around 10 to one I ordered through AT&T.

    If I were you I would be in line the 2nd day and the phones reserved but not picked up will be on sale.;)

    Glad I got to BB to pre-order on the 24th, it seems that some ppl may not see an iPhone until it is on Verizon they are so backed up :D

    You won't be on the list then, you pre-ordered for delivery. So the iPhone you Pre-Ordered will be shipped to your house on the 14th. The people waiting in line Reserved one for pickup. You won't be on the list of people who reserved one.

    I think it ships on the 14th so depending where you live it will be in your house 2 to 4 days later.

    That is correct. The earliest pre-orders are being -delivered- on June 24th. This is different from the estimated -ship- dates of July 2nd and July 24th.

    Delivered: At your doorstep
    Shipped: In transit from China

    OP, you gotta realize the pre-order for delivery and the reservation for store pick-up are two different things. Even if your pre-order was to be delivered on the launch day, you still won't be able to pick up at store by lining in the "reserved" line. In other words, there is no such thing as "pre-order line" at the store on the launch day. There will be another line for non-reserved, and you'll have to line up there and take chances.

    Again, correct. Your safest bet would be to cancel your online pre-order, to avoid any conflicts with your in-store purchase. However, you are -not- guaranteed an iPhone 4 in any way once you cancel your pre-order.

    Unless the line you're standing in is an iPhone 4 assembly line, yes they'll turn you away.
