As any large company you have to take an overwhelming launch of your product as a good sign... but the line is very fine between a successful (albeit, busy) launch and a launch that annoys and alienates users due to underwhelming support.

Apple seems to be treading that fine line right now. Many users are unable to order online due to the site being slow or down entirely.

We've posted an article about being able to order one at a local Apple store and reserving your iPhone 4 that way, but what if you don't live near an Apple store, are you out of luck?

That seems to be the question that many would-be iPhone customers are asking themselves.

Yahoo has a great article up about it here as well: Apple, AT&T websites buckle as iPhone 4 pre-orders begin - Yahoo! News

I guess tales of the iPhones demise are greatly exaggerated. (I'm looking at you, Android....).

If you have to ask, you cant afford it.....
On my AT&T receipt it says $ 400.00 discount


so around the same but with contracts you pay the same if not more you just paying it off monthly instead of all in one go not to mention telephone bills and any extra..

i had to ask and i bought 2 ...:S
