    No thread on the iPhone 4? Did anyone else Pre-Order?

    It took me literally all day, but I finally managed to order my new iPhone 4. The bad news is I don't think it's coming on the 24th (the day they're supposed to arrive if you pre-ordered for delivery at home), because in my order status on ATT it says I ordered on the 16th. I'll probably get it a few days later. At least I was able to order though, lots of people weren't.

    Did anyone else pre-order? If not, are you planning on getting the new iPhone on launch day, or later on?

    AT&T really bombed that pre-order. Holy Cow what a mess from what I've been reading over on Howard Forums. They even had to close some stores down. LOL The supposed ship date for some people has been pushed back to July 2nd, so only a little over a week which isn't bad. Oh, and no, I plan upgrading my current phone to either the new Motorola DroidX or the Droid 2 that's supposed to come out next month.

    I still don't know which way I'll be going come August....the Incredible is backed up a bit with pre-orders, and now they're talking about the Shadow 'n DroidX and some other Droid 2 phones for late summer....argggg.

    I'm looking forward to the HD video recording, better camera, doing facetime calls with the boy while he's at work, and the phone just generally being faster (I have a 3G) and the battery lasting longer. I can't wait to get it - I'm trying to pack the next week or so with lots of stuff to do so it goes faster.

    My only concern is having the glass front and back. I have the 3G too and the newer apps are starting to bog it down.

    Also, nobody has the ability to confirm a pre-order other than a live CSR. Confirmation emails and order status is just a "reserved" spot. Make sure you talk to a live CSR just to make sure.

    Talked to the CSR and she stated that there is no way to guarentee delivery by 6/24. Their system shows everything as backordered until it ships. All I can do now is cross my fingers.

    Yeah, I'm also gonna upgrade but will prolly wait until the dust settles right after release to see if there are any major bugs. If iOS 4 installs fine on my 3GS that will be a good sign lol.

    The newest update for iTunes rolled out today too. Its supposed to speed up the backup time for phones running 4.0...which will be a godsend.

    My phone has been out for delivery since 5:30 am.. it's now a little past noon and it's still not here. I hope it comes soon - I have Things To Do, I'm starving, and I want to take a shower...

    tao_jones - did your phones come yet?

    OMG... see what you did 9mm!!! You crashed FedEx's website checking for your precious!




    Just as Apple fans were at their jitteriest about the impending delivery of their iPhone 4s, FedEx's online tracking system crashed Wednesday afternoon.

    upgraded to iOS4 on my 3GS....don't know if I need to goto the iPhone 4. Everything on the 3GS works better and is faster.
