Went to local At&t at 5:30pm today to order a 3G. At first the rep said I was not eligible for the discounted pricing. One 10 minute phonecall to At&t by me fixed that.

They actually had the black 8 gigs in stock. He was trying to get me to take that one but I want the 16 giger. So Im good to go. Should be here in 5-7 days.

I just cant understand why a million people all over the world went through craziness to get their phones. Weve waited so long, whats another couple of days? I walked in, got my phone, no lines to deal with...

With all due respect to those of you that waited 7 hours in line, yall are nuttier than a chipmunks cheaks in october.

There was a customer there that did purchase the 8gig. The rep removed it from the box but still told the customer they would have to finish activating it from home.

None at my local ATT store today. I will wait. I did not want to pay today and get it in 7-10 days. I may just go to the Apple store this weekend.

Your card is not charged until it arrives. Or at least that's what the receipt says...:cool:

Could be just a pending charge, we do the same at my job. It's not charged, but pending until we charge it.

By law they are not allowed to "charge" you card until the item ships, but they do put a "hold" on the amount when scanned most of the time, some places only do like a dollar, like best buy, until it ships.

If I say "no disrespect" before mentioning that you are "a raging retarded *******", that makes it OK, right?

I and thousands of other people waited in line for about 7 hours and some and can't really explain why. I guess we're a special breed. Don't know. Maybe the excitement of being there and getting the phone on iDay. No matter how i try to justify, there is really no justification for waiting in line for 7 hours. OMG. However, i can say that i have the NEW iPhone and can give the people that waited a review on what and what not to look for. So, the world needs people like us. LOL. I'm laughing just writing this reply. :p
