Sold out in Chicago within an hour, at my local Cingular (haven't changed the sign yet either) branch. Lots of angry people as a result.

I'm guessing everywhere. My co-worker ordered one from an AT&T store and they said it would come in a week.

I wonder how many Apple sold/will still sell today. The number has to be astronomical.

Well 200 per Apple store would be about 35,000. Then you have all the little AT&T stores and online for both companies. This phones is still overpriced, only comes with a contract, and has too little storage for my liking - it's still the coolest thing I've ever seen though. Europeans want a music playing cellphone that makes calls and sends texts. All this internet business is a bonus over here, but not a seller ultimately. In the end the price is the big factor. iPhone nano for me - maybe

Nah... actually it was displaying 2-4 weeks since store.apple.com went back online. I believe most of the units were distributed to Apple and AT&T stores.

Actually went through that complete list about 30 minutes ago. Every Apple store in every state has a green light next to it. Either there are tons of units for sale or demand is not over the top. Take your pick.

Yes I see that but did you notice the date it had listed: "Sunday, July 1"

It's either broken or they will be expecting more deliveries some time today Saturday so when they say 'Sunday' they really mean sometime after our delivery on Saturday.

Cause I gotta believe that SOME / MANY of the Apple stores must have sold out their entire stock on Friday - people were reporting as such...

I'm thinking they had as many as possible at each site. My store (Palm Beach Gardens, FL) had a bunch last night at 10:00 PM when I bought mine. Just a few others meandering and buying.

Of course it is now 10:00 AM and I'm STILL waiting for my activation to complete.

checked this morning most places it is available, may be it will be updated when the stores Open this morning and then see the availability.

As opposed to what:

A 2 year Verizon contract playing the spoil-sport

Ot

A 2 year Sprint contract playing the spoil-sport

Or

A 2 year T-Mobile contract playing the spoil-sport

It WAS going to be an EXCLUSIVE and it was going to go to one of the top 3 (4) providers... Either way 3/4 of the US was going to be needing to 'migrate' if they wanted an iPhone.

One Problem with that: It's AT&T. Verison and Sprint have much better networks, even if they will try and screw you over more with using their network features. I guess it's almost a lose-lose situation. Oh well. It's a problem of the iPhoners now, not mine.

IN YOUR AREA PERHAPS but where I live 30 miles north-west of NYC I get much better reception with AT&T uhh Cingular uhh AT&T. Well at least I did when I chose my provided some 8 odd years ago.

Think about it for just a second.. would AT&T be the LARGEST CARRIER (even tho its a slim margin between #1 and #2) in the US if they had such a crappy network?!?!

Some places Verizon has the best coverage... other places it's Sprint and still other places it's Cingular... Nobody has 'the perfect network EVERYWHERE' cause if they did they'd own the ENTIRE US MARKET. In the US the market is split pretty equally with the top 4 (well when you combine #3 and #4 into a single entity).... It's 33% Cingular, 33% Verizon and the last 33% getting divvied up between Sprint and T-Mobile. (numbers aren't exact but it makes my point)

I ordered mine just around 6:30 PM Pacific time shortly after they went on sale. The apple store site was very slow. It took about 3 minutes between each screen but finally went through. I think it said 3-5 business days delivery time. I can't remember, but I'm not in a hurry anyway.

Also, consider this: we know for a fact that AT&T's network will get better and faster. They may lag behind Verizon somewhat in 3G rollout, but it's coming.

Now, if Apple had compromised and gone with Verizon, bowing to Verizon's idea of how the cell phone user experience should work, what guarantees would we have that Verizon would come around, over time?

I think the choice, from Apple's perspective, was clear: get the user experience they wanted now and the network speed and coverage fairly soon, or get the network now and the user experience maybe never.

Did the same thing, ordered online. Site was slow.

Happened to be at Fashion Valley mall in San Diego on our last day of vacation. Walked right into the Apple store and bought our phones. Cancelled the online order. Store employee said they still had plenty of stock. Can't wait to get home to Phoenix to activate it.

Can't imagine how cranky the folks that waited all night must be.

Still, AT&T Wireless is last or second from last in call quality in 19 of the top 20 markets. There are other reasons that a service would dominate despite a lower quality network.

Well since we are talking about FOUR companies (for all intents and purposes) when you say LAST or SECOND to last you could also be saying third or fourth..

Hey I'm not making any excuses for them... They work very well where I live and that's why I went with them... Quality while not to the level of Verizon wasn't bad and back 6 or so year ago Verizon was WAY HIGH with its rates and I didn't feel it was worth the extra money... Now all the players have BASICALLY 'price fixed' the market... Sure you'll get unlimited IMs with one and free rollover with the other etc etc etc perhaps one will throw an extra 50 anytime minutes into their plans just to mix things up a bit... but price wise they are all pretty much equal... With T-Mobile being on the cheaper end (given their coverage isn't nearly as good as the others).
