More bad news, I'm afraid. Those of you who hoped to avoid the experience of camping out in front of AT&T Wireless stores by ordering the iPhone by phone or online are out of luck. I just spoke with a second AT&T sales rep who confirmed what a previous lackey told me; AT&T will only be selling iPhone to customers through their corporate stores on a first come, first served basis. No pre-orders, and no orders by phone or through the web.

The rep I spoke with did not know for certain how long this policy would continue, but hinted that it would go on well past June 29. So, bottom line - if you want an iPhone you must get in line, literally.

Isn't this fun? I'm thinking of becoming an alcoholic to pass away the time. Who wants to join me in a drink?
