    Due the the overwhelming demand for the iPhone 4, AT&T will not be offering any devices to walk-in customers until June 29th. All of the units have already been spoken for during the initial pre-order last week.

    Here are a few guidelines for customers buying iPhone 4 from AT&T:

    I just asked an At&T rep at my local store, she says she doesn't know anything about it - quote: "I'll know more tomorrow"

    Actually, unit sales can only be accounted for the units that are in stock and ready to be sold but if they are all sold already what unit sales can it hurt? Sure, it will disappoint a lot of people but I highly doubt that they'll run straight to Verizon and get a Droid X or Evo from sprint for that matter. Majority of the people will still buy the new iphone.

    The article says he pre-ordered. It also says he is disabled with a seizure disorder. He also said he did it the last two years but might take next year off. I wouldn't be doing it. It has been getting up to 100 degrees around, he is up in Dallas so it may a little cooler but not much.

    So he in 100 degree weather and has a seizer disorder? , could being in that type of weather condition trigger a seizer???? Its a good thing he pre-ordered lets just hope he doesn't get heat stroke before the 24th...
