yikes!

Well he apparently said "he believes" at 6pm. this could be a reason/excuse to have "special event" status applied at ATTingular and Apple stores. Can you imagine how INSANE it will be if people start lining up at Apple Stores first thing in the morning?

some of you guys are way too uptight about this. first you wanted a release date.. now you want a release hour..? there isn't going to be a guy in a brown UPS suit show up at EVERY vendor with a box of iPhones right at 6PM simultaneously. If you really want one then you can most likely count on having your phone on June 29th or June 30th at the latest.. There's no use busting a blood vessel and having an aneurysm over a few hours.. Don't you have anything else to live for?

Definitely NOT uptight...

The point is - some sort of organized announcement should be given to the poor unwashed masses who actually want to buy one of these things. I really don't plan on losing any sleep over this. I just hope to avoid an all out mess when I go to pick mine up. It would be nice to think you might actually be able to ask some questions etc.. without the feeling that an angry mob is standing outside :laugh2:

I just called MY local ATTingular store and the dude there told me they will get them most likely the 28th in the afternoon. He told me (insert slight amount of doubt here) that he'd be happy to call me when he found out when they would be in-store, and we can go from there.

I think that Apple stores will end up in an extremely "carnival like" atmosphere which will of course make those passing by wonder what's up with the Apple people (again) but might make it tough to purchase and activate your new iPhone.

I'm looking forward to coming back from vacation, getting a couple of iPhones, and having some fun!

I doubt AT&T stores will follow this "6PM, the iPhone goes om sale" time. The ones that I've talked to told me that are all planning to sell them as soon as they open at 9am on 6/29.

Buy the iPhone from an AT&T store.

Do you really thing the lines are going to be that long, for you to be on line for almost 24hrs.?

ATT Stores AND Apple stores?

Is the phone going to be available at Apple stores too? I thought it was only being offered by AT&T. Does anyone know? I heard that there might not be enough equipment to even have more than 1 or 2 available at the AT&T stores. I am curious as to whether or not more can be found at the Apple stores.

The iPhone is available at both Apple and AT&T stores.


I am a little thrown off by this 6 P.M time, but I will work around it so I can get the iPhone :D.

Buy it from an AT&T store at 9am or start camping early in the morning, instead of camping out the night before. I don't think the lines will be that bad to warrant camping out for 24+ hours.

Don't get so worked up. He said SHIPPED at 6PM on the 29th. That means all the iPHones that are purchased through Apple.com that day will be shipped that afternoon. He wouldn't have said "shipped" if he meant "go on sale."

I think 6PM is their normal shipping time for all Apple.com orders.
