Hello everyone!

I have a situation that I need help with what to do! I am planning on getting the iPhone on Iday when it comes out. I live in FL and I have a bunch of AT&T stores in the area. However, I work on Iday at the bank until 5:30... There is an AT&T store in my plaza. Now, I have a buddy that works at one of the biggest stores in the mall (IL) that said he can call me on Iday in the morning and get my credit card number over the phone. He will ship me the phone as well but I probably won't be seeing it until Tues. at the latest :( The plus side of this is I will have an iPhone for sure! The question I am pondering is whether to try and get an iPhone from the store so I can have it on Iday or if I should just go with the for sure and order it from my buddy?! What do you guys think as this is going to be a huge day... (note: if I order it with my buddy Fri morning then I won't have the money come 6:00 at launch so its pretty much one or the other...)

Thanks for the input!

If it was me, I would go with the friend....U can get it FOR SURE, u just have 2 wait a littlebit more, but its better than going at 6 to your local store and come out with no phone at all....

Try the store. If you don't get one there, go home and order it from Apple.com. You'll get it by Thursday if you have to order it. I wouldn't go through all that stuff with giving out my credit card number and stuff to only get it one day sooner.

Bur first, try the At&t store. You might get lucky.
