• How to Get an iPhone 3G S Tomorrow

    Just hours away here in North America from the iPhone 3G S! If you wanted one, you should have pre-ordered it last week. For those of you that didn't we have some advice:


    AT&T stores will be open to the pre-orderers only between 7 am and 9 am. If you didn't pre-order you'll need to be inline early in the morning, 5-6 am in many areas, to have a shot of grabbing an iPhone 3G S. We don't expect AT&T stores to have large quantities on hand.

    Apple stores are insane on iPhone days and are all opening at 7 am. At popular Apple stores there are ALREADY people waiting in line. The plus side is Apple stores typically have more stock of iPhones so more people can get them there. Unless you are in one of those areas when people started camping yesterday (you know who you are NYC) you can probably snag a iPhone 3G S if you start standing in line about the same time as the AT&T folks.

    Best Buy and Walmarts are hidden gems. Many of these stores should have the iPhone 3G S for sale, just beware, quantities will probably be less than at Apple and AT&T stores. You probably wont even see a line if you are 3-4 hours early. Later in the morning as the Apple and AT&T stores run out of stock expect to see people scrambling to Best Buys and Walmarts.


    Apple Stores should open up at 8 am. Be in line by 6 am. Rogers / Fido is opening at normal times (maybe, no one seems to know) so be in line some hours early. They could surprise everyone and open early after all.

    Hidden Gem: FutureShop has iPhones. From what I can tell not many people are aware of that fact, might be the least wait place to be.

    Do you have iPhones at Best Buy and Walmart? Do you have Walmart? If the answer to the first or both is yes then they will probably (just guessing here, haven't heard anything official) have the iPhone 3G S for sale, same rules apply as with the USA stores above.

    I like polls. Take our poll above and share your strategy for nabbing an iPhone 3G S.
