Pre-ordering delays


After one hour and a half hours of waiting, I finally got my pre-order in for a new iPhone. Don’t think I didn’t try calling Apple’s online store last night at midnight and this morning – oh, buddy, I was trying and trying and trying. The Apple website was down and the phone number was unreachable with so many calls.

During my lunch break, I went over to the local AT&T and not only pre-ordered my new iPhone but also activated an old temporary phone that someone let me borrow. Of course, as I mentioned above, I had to wait 1.5 hours in the store.

The AT&T salesman said that there was a line formed outside of the store in the morning before they even opened. I had thought about being one of those in line but… I figured I would be lucky enough to do it via phone. Didn’t happen.

So with the morning craze of iPhone orders and AT&T telling me that the contact with Apple was delayed… I am happy to report that you can now just order online. Apparently it was just a morning rush. Of course, you can also pre-order at Best Buy and Walmart if you want to but they will all get here on the 24th, regardless of where you buy.

Most importantly, I am now reachable via phone, text and even email on a cell, a Palm Centro cell. Come the 24th, I will be sporting a new iPhone 4, though 🙂
