OK, I know most of you plan to camp, so you can get your grubby little hands (no offense) on one. :)

But for those of us (just me?) who will order online, does anybody know when the online ordering will begin? I'm assuming 6 pm Eastern time, so I'll be in Colorado on the 29th and I'm expecting to be able to order at 4 pm Mountain time.

Anybody know?

If I were you, I would start checking at 6 PM Eastern. More than likely, the Apple.com site will be down for construction before that as they add the necessary pages to handle the sale of the phone.

There have been other rumours to the effect that online orders would not be available for at least 30 days after launch. I have no confirmation of this but I have read this on several posts on this board. If you are planning on ordering online just be prepared to wait a while, like a month, or you may be disappointed.

I think this applies to AT&T's website. I believe Apple will begin online orders at 6PM on 6/29. However you should call 1-800-MYAPPLE to make verify.

Online orders will be available at Apple.com on the 29th. Only the At&t.com site will have to wait 30 days before they can start selling it.

If the iPhone can be purchased online I recommend checking Apple.com/store a few days before the 29th in case you can order it online and have it show up at your house the same day other folks can purchase it in-store. Apple has done this with other product releases.

That would be the surest way to guarantee an iPhone at launch.

yeah joe. call 1800 MyApple. press one then 8 for iPhone questions! :cool:

ask them anything. ;] they were the ones that confirmed it for me,
Yeah! They just said the same thing to me. This still seems very odd to me. They say shipping the 29th but it's not shipping anywhere the 29th. It's available in stores on the 29th and not shipping for phone orders until Monday, 7/2. Previous products would be available for purchase before the release date so you could have it delivered close to the same time you could get it in the stores. Something just doesn't add up.

So you can order it on the 29th at 6 PM Pacific, but they won't ship it until Monday 7/2?

Exactly! That's what he said on the phone. However, I am still holding out hope that this is just the standard line until Apple makes an announcement.

i think the shipping on 7/2 only refers to phone orders... online orders made on the 29th will be shipped that day or the next or how ever long it takes Apple.com to process orders
