well as long as you don't die anytime before 6PM on the 30th of June then you can have it. but then again the longer you camp out without food/shelter the greater your chances of dying so its a vicious trade-off.. whatever you choose, good luck!

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.
I really hope you're right...that does make sense now that I think of it.

Here is a shot in the dark...you walk into AT&T on the 29th and they don't have any iPhones...stay with me...you go to the rep and say where is my iPhone. They tell you you will receive it in a few days just simply place an order with us, we will setup your account and it will be shipped to your door and you will just have to call to activate (like a credit card). I really think this is how it will work. This way they ensure every store has a chance to sell these puppies!:laugh2:

You know what though, wasn't Jobs' words "shipping at 6pm". I don't think it will be available in any stores on the 29th. It might just be orders that are taken at the Online Apple store that day or (hopefully) pre-orders.

They are still fulfilling their promise to be "available" in June but really got delayed a week and have it in all their "brick and mortar" stores by Tuesday July 3rd.

I was thinking the exact same thing. This is of course assuming that they do preorders or orders via Apple.com. We can only hope that this is the case. Either way, I'm still going to be at my local AT&T store no matter what the morning of June 29.

i am likely ordering online to avoid the fuss. If you have ever ordered an Apple product online before then you know that it RARELY takes 3 businesss days to get your package. Usually received between 24-48 hours after placing the order. Guaranteed to be in stock, and no camping in the 90 degree weather.

I think this way they can ensure that the masses will have them without the stores getting burned down by the pitchfork wielding mobs!

I'm just saying. You know Jobs' is very careful with his words. Shipping at 6pm will mean that. He would've said Available at 6pm if that was the case. Mark my words it'll only be available online on the 29th.

shipping at 6pm makes sense, thats when last trucks pick up outgoing shipments.

ok according to engadget's covergage of WWDC jobs said this...

11:16AM - "The iPhone ships on June 29th, that is just 18 days from today. I believe it's 6pm in the evening it will go on sale... now, what about developers?" Huge applause.
From that I get, it will be available for purchase at 6pm on 6/29/07. Also the "i believe" tells me he's not 100% sure or its not set in stone.

Going on sale at 6 just simply makes no sense what so ever. I have my rehearsal dinner for my wedding that night, then I get married the next day, then off to Mexico. If I miss this thing I am not going to be a happy camper;)
