    i guess it's people like you who keep others from actually getting an iphone.
    If I don't pick up any of my phones, they will go on sale the next day.

    I guess it is people like you who will be without the new iPhone on release day because you didn't plan ahead. If you were not smart enough to plan ahead, for what most of us on MMI knew was going to be crazy demand for the new iPhone 4, you can't get mad at others because they had a back up and back up-back up plan! I wish BP had a back up-back up-back up plan. I did the same thing. I pre-ordered 3. Two with AT&T and one on Apple Store and as of Sunday morning I have received my confirmation my order from Apple is shipped and is now departing Hong Kong Intl Airport in transit to the US! My 2 AT&T orders, still nothing not even a email. SO what did we learn here today? PLAN AHEAD! Don't get mad at other people because they are thinking forward and planning ahead! Get mad at yourself for not doing what you needed to do to make sure you have a new iPhone 4 on release day if that was your original intention. I guess it is time for you to head to your Store of choice AT&T, Apple, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, or Radio Shack and start iCamping. Good Luck : (Bravo I got your back! ATX!!)
    haha, thanks. This is my fourth iPhone launch and I know the demand, I don't take any chances when it comes to getting an iPhone on launch day.

    We need to have an MMI launch party in Austin!

    Isnt it pointless to camp at best buy? Pre orders come first so i would imagine first shipment and probably the second shipment is spoke for
    The best bet for camping out is an Apple store. They will have longer lines but they will also have larger inventories.

    There wouldn't be as much of a crazy demand if people like you weren't greedy to pre order more than one iPhone 4.

    People are overly critical here but it isn't Best Buy's fault. ATT actually oversold their preorder and Apple wants to give as many as they can to ATT. It is nice to see so many uninformed people ripping into the first company they can point a finger at though. What do I expect though? These are the MMI news forums after all!

    Just a quickie.
    Stealth Bravo has ordered 4 iphones because he, like me, knows how this game is played. You go to three differient stores, and for some reason get slammed 3 times, and actually GET 1 phone on release day. If stealth Bravo gets 4 phones, you can bet your sweet a&& that one of them will be torn apart within the first 6 hours, and this will benefit way more people than just you or me getting our mits on one. He has the potential to show us how to fix our phones, or give one to somebody much smarter than I will ever be in the innerworkings of the phone. Have one that works and one to tear apart to help us readers of MMI?
    I hope he gets all 4. it's his money and more experience for us.
    LAY OFF the smart people!
    Oh, and have a nice day.

    You clearly missed the point in its entirety. The beef isn't with Stealth in and of himself. The beef is with all the people that do this (and you admitted you did it as well). Everyone doing this sort of defeats the whole point of doing a pre-order. We are at a point where we need to pre-order to have the ability to stand in line 24 hours in advance. It is simply ridiculous. If everyone went for ONE unit, while I can't say the issues would be nullified, they would be GREATLY reduced.

    wow... did your fillings come loose from that one? how was it stealth? i bet that felt good..

    what the hell does him getting 4 phones has to do with anything you said? i dont' want to read about how cool the phone is and how to "fix" it... dumb... dumb.. dumb...

    i want an iphone in my hands, you fool.

    There wouldn't be as much of a crazy demand if people like you weren't greedy to pre order more than one iPhone 4.
    didn't plan ahead? i was up at 1am trying to preorder via online... i also went at all the att stores in my area the next day..

    you are an idiot who makes statements based on a false premise.

    please shut up...

    I hope you don't get the money back for the pre ordered iPhones you don't pick up. It's people like you that caused the cancellation of other people's orders who only pre ordered one iPhone.

    More bad news!

    With all the hype of the stolen iPhone, the major success of the iPad, the introduction of a new iPhone design and the debut of Video Conferencing for the device, ONE WOULD HAVE GUESSED THAT THE DEMAND WOULD BE OUTRAGEOUS!

    I understand there was no definite why to determine the exact amount requested but you know that millions will be purchased by the end of the year. JUST MAKE THE DAMN THINGS! The iPad sold 2 Million Units in 59 Days. That is 3 per second. Isn't that a direct quote from Steve Jobs himself?

    Get with it Apple! We are a bunch of idiots that want to give you more money....Hand over fist!

    MAKE MORE iPHONES!!!!
    its all marketing...

    sorry to disappoint you buddy but it is not called greedy. I have earned my 3 upgrades for the years of service and money I have paid to AT&T. I have the cash, I have all 3 lines eligible for upgrade, so why should I disappoint my wife and kid because of your unfortunate circumstances. I pre-ordered what I wanted because I could. Put yourself in my shoes, if all your lines were eligible and you had the cash and and your loved ones; be it girlfriend, mistress, kid or whatever, wanted one...you are telling me you would think to yourself.."self some poor soul out there will not be able to get a iPhone 4 if I upgrade all my 3 lines of service so I will just upgrade one line not all."..Sorry but my opinion is I highly doubt you would think of others if you were in the same boat as me.

    try to comprehend something before you respond. upgrading 3 lines is fine. preordering 4 iphones for one account is simply a jerk move because it causes the rest to suffer cancellations or the inability to preorder at all...

    I agree with your point and mr fan boy. Yes the demand would be less if everyone who has multiple eligible upgrades would only order 1 iPhone 4 device per house hold and wait to upgrade the other lines. However for you guys to expect that...It is not going to happen. All I am saying is stop crying about it. As I said in my other posts the 2 upgrades I did on AT&T's site don't appear to have gone thru and I expect to be notified that my pre-orders with AT&T were canceled. It sucks yes, but it seems you were one of the many that may not get a iPhone 4 on release day because of how this pre-order was setup. Sorry Bro.
