Hi

I currently have Verizon but am going to break my contract with them to get the iPhone 3GS.

I'm confused by the myriad of places I have to choose from to order the iphone. Apple.com, att.com, best buy, walmart, etc...which site/store will give me the phone the fastest? I have both an apple store and at&t store in my area if that matters.

My employer also has discounts for phone plans so I might have to go through AT&T premiere or whatever...it seems like there's a two week waiting list though!! Is that true?

Any purchasing advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.6)

    There's no way anyone here could tell you how fast it takes to get a phone, as it depends on how busy each store is.

    Hi

    Well you could always go to the nearest ATT store or the store that has them and see if they have it in stock. So that way you can get the phone right away? Good luck!

    I would guess if anyone was to consistently have stock more than anyones else...it would be the Apple Store.

    Are people having better luck ordering through Apple vs. AT&T?

    Also, does anyone know if I can pick my phone up at an AT&T store if I order through AT&T website?

    cg...do everything online first. That makes sure you don't have any problems whatsoever. When you're done there, you can head over to an Apple Store to complete the transaction (sign agreements, authorize that you become an official Apple Fanboy, and pay money). And Apple Stores have a higher level of stock, because, well, they're Apple.

    I did everything online, and I picked up my new 3G S in about 15 minutes, cutting to the front of the small line.

    Here in the Los Angeles area there are so many Apple Stores, I know which ones are busy and which ones are less busy.

    In the whole scheme of things, why does it matter where you get it? As long as it's in stock, is it really going to make any difference? Probably not.
