  1. One Million Inquiries, well at least ATT has got Napster on it’s side too just in case there isn’t any demand for the iPhone. These megalopolies kill me – ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” />)

  2. No Squirt For You

    They would be crazy to take preorders because of how much of a pain people can be when something they have order does not arrive exactly when they expected it. If they say June first and it is a week late ATT will be flooded with complains and acusations from unreasonable customers

  3. I am sure there have been a significantly higher number inquiries. The 1+ million is people that have actually left an email address!
    Do you leave your address every time you visit a website?? I sure don’t!
    Case in point-I visited the site, did not leave an address …. I inquired but am not in the 1+ million count.

    Tip of the iceberg!


  4. @ JB

    It won’t be scratched because there will be a note in every iPhone box that will say,”Madly scrubbing the screen with a paper towel to generate a class action lawsuit will void your iPhone warranty”.

    Basic education is a necessity, never stop learning.

  6. Right on, Neko. The frequent misspelling of “loser” is one of the two plagues that doom civilization.

    Unfortunately, the second one is the run-on sentence.

    “Basic education is a necessity, never stop learning.”
