I got an order status e-mail from AT&T yesterday that my order is moving forward. So far, that is. I am now contemplating all the fun things I can do to my old WinMo phone once the iPhone 4 arrives. Sorry to even say that word, winmo, here in the forums.

I'm open to suggestion!

I have a blog post running on the topic as well.

I sold my Moto Droid earlier this week. If it's new enough that someone will still want it, then sell it. But if its an older phone then I say shoot it a couple times.

Check out the Wal-Mart trade in program Gazalle. If its worth anything they will pay for shipping and send you a prepaid Visa for the amount.
