iPhone live podcast #104 - Pre-ordermaggedon!

iPhone live #103 WWDC 2010

Apple's up and down, AT&T is on and off. Best Buy is and isn't. We're talking timeouts, delays, fails and foibles, and for the few, the relieved -- order confirmations that may or may not be honored. That's right, if you're reading this you might just have survived iPhone 4 pre-order day!


Thanks to the TiPb iPhone accessory store for sponsoring the podcast, and to everyone who showed up for the live chat!

iPhone live podcast #104 - Pre-ordermaggedon!


Pre-ordering for me was a breeze at the AT&T store. I tried all morning on line and finally gave up. I happened to be near the AT&T store getting lunch that afternoon and stopped in, thinking it would be a complete waste of time because of the masses. Well, I could not have been more wrong! I was in and out in under 30 minutes. I was told that it's pretty certain (as certain as anything is in this world) that I will have an iPhone 4 waiting for me on June 24th. According to my receipt, I have 7 days to pick it up and the rep assured me I will not have to wait in the long line of people who didn't pre-order. That said, I am going to be there first thing in the morning, just in case :-)

Hi guys,
It's funny to listen to you wondering why Apple didn't release white iphone... Think for a minute... What happens everytime they release something? Yes people que in front of their shops and they get a lot of free advertisment. They could release 2 iphones at once and people would que but guess what in a month or so they will release white one and we will hear again 'white iphone sold out', people que... They will get buzz around iphone again by doing pretty much nothing.
