So with the ability to pre-order online and have the iPhone 3GS delivered by the 19th, am I gonna be the only person camping out at an Apple store next Thursday? Provided they still allow it like they did with iDay 1 and 2, that is.

Who else is with me? :cool:

That date was misleading. The confirmation emails show that the ship date is the 19th with a delivery date within 5 businesss days.

I think the lines will still be long since people want them on release day.

Funny, I live about 6 blocks from the Apple Store but I still refuse to wait in any line. I chose to have mine shipped. LOL..Oh well, I will probably still go over there to look and in the meantime buy some accessories for the 3GS.

I actually think the lines will be a bit smaller this year (but still fairly long).

I agree, shorter than previous years, but still long.

Agreed! I don't think it's going to be as hectic and crazy like the last two releases. I never camped out for either release. There are so many AT&T stores in this valley. Not to mention 4 Apple stores.

I'd camp out if, you know, I didn't have to WORK. I'll get it Monday 6/22 after work at the local Apple or AT&T store.

I'll probably wait in line at a local AT&T store with my niece's boyfriend. I called him after the keynote and asked him what time he'd be hitting the store. He said, "Oh, I guess around opening time..."

I said, "Son, you obviously can't do this yourself; I'll take you under my wing and we'll do this together."

He's an iPhone newbie.

Good call with the "reserve" idea. In my case, I want to talk to them about the plan and stuff before picking it all out online because of the family plan issue...so I'll have to wait...

I'm hearing two different release dates... June 17th, and now June 19th, and both from reputable sources. I think it will arrive on Friday, the 19th, but what do you make of the date June 17th?

Perhaps the 17th is the release date for the OS update.
