iPhone 4 Preorder

Were You Able to Preorder an iPhone 4 Today?

First came the news that there would be no white iPhone 4s available. Then came the mess that was the online and in-store preordering system. With long lines, crashing websites, and internal breakdowns at AT&T, it seems that no one was prepared for the rush the newest Apple handset would trigger.

I've already described my preorder fail earlier (with still no success), and now it seems that AT&T has already sold out of iPhone 4 preorders (which indicates that launch-day lines are going to be of epic, first gen iPhone proportions). So tell me — were you one of the persistent few who were able to preorder an iPhone 4 today online or in store?

After multiple attempts I was finally able to get a reserved one at the store, no joy on having the thing delivered to my house which was my first option. I almost cancelled my order though because at&t didn't have me listed as eligible for an upgrade even though I have had my current phone for 2 years. i finished registering and got my confirmation email then sat on the phone with at&t for almost an hour before I could confirm that i was eligible for an upgrade. Can someone explain the deal on them charging tax on the full price of the phone (without contract option). I was told that the purchase price of the phone is $299 (w/ contract) but the tax is $68.15 (I live in Los Angeles where tax is 9.75%) which is based on the $699 non-contract price. How is that legal?

@meereesa - I had the same experience online and never received a confirmation email from Apple. So I did the reservation using the app and got an confirmation email 5 minutes later and my reservation is in the app itself. I'm curious to see if my name ends up on the stores list twice on the 24th.

I was unsuccessful most of the morning, later in the afternoon I tried the "pickup in store" option. I got to a confirmation page that said "we'll see you at the store" telling me that I need to bring a valid, government issued ID, but nothing else... no confirmation # or email. The only thing I had entered at that point was my at&t phone#... so I have NO IDEA if mine is reserved or not :( le sigh..

I'm going to wait till' the hype dies down and probably buy mine in late July or August. I really want a white one, so I'm willing to wait until later

After attempting to since 8:30 a.m. this morning, I was finally able to reserve one on just minutes ago. Finally, I was about to not even bother with iPhone 4 because of the length of time it took to reserve.
