  1. I was in line for hours and hours for a reserved 32GB iPhone 4 only to be told they had all sold out when I reached the front of the que. Thanks Apple 

  2. Why are so many people waiting in line to get the iPhone 4?

    Don’t they know there are new Android phones out too? Hmmmm..

    why are they not getting Android based phones…I hear so many good things about them….[end sarcasm]

  3. Hey, whoever’s at the Fashion Valley Mall in San Diego: Don’t forget the pictures of the “lines” at the Microsoft Store opening (it will be down like 4 stores away). It’s early. I’m hungry, and I need a good bloodbath to get my day started !!!

  4. I’m with you Lava head. I was in the queue at an O2 store for ages only to be turned away because they didn’t have enough stock.

    They were delivered approximately 20 phones to that store which is pathetic if you ask me. At least 100 per O2 store would have been more like it.

    What really exacerbated my annoyance is that I phoned Apple and O2 to see if I could get an estimated delivery date on the next batch and they didn’t have a clue. One said maybe as late as 14th July 🙁

    I’m falling out with Apple on this big time.

  5. Well, I wouldn’t call it a line. I went to my Wal*Mart this morning to pick up 2 iPhone 4s. There were only 3 people in front of me. And guess what? They only got THREE in. So I stood there for about 45 minutes as the three people in front of me got their iPhone 4s. And then they were sold out.

    Come on. THREE LOUSY PHONES? This, after the nightmare of the June 15th pseudo pre-order fiasco… I’m seriously disappointed.

  6. Best Buy called me yesterday to say my phone was in and that it would be there for me a noon today.

    I never thought I’d say this – but Best Buy rules.

    (we were in a pre order line of 4 people – with zero hassle)
