At 10pm, the apple stores update their inventories online, and you can reserve one for next day in-store pickup.

So basically go online at 9:55, put the iPhone in your cart and enter in all of your info. Then at around 9:58 start checking the stores for availability via your zip code. If it is not available, close the store lookup window and keep trying until around 10:05. If you don't get one by 10:05 you try the next day.

I tried this for about 5 days until South Hills apple store had one. Last Thursday night is when I snagged it, every store in Pittsburgh had the model I was looking for (64 GB white). I was seeing lots of stores though that had them during the week, especially in Ohio and DC. For some reason my pittsburgh zip code brings up the DC stores as well.

So in other words, I got my iPhone before my wife who just got hers yesterday, and she ordered it like 2 days after the start of pre-orders.

Also, you don't actually reserve the phone until you complete the checkout, so have your CC handy. Even if you just use the CC on file, they make you re-enter in your 3 digit code thing.


if you dont make the refreshed inventory, does it say usually ships in 3-4 weeks? thats what i keep seeing so i am not sure if i jsut missed the update or what

I gotta say the iPhone maps is completely terrible. It has no idea where it's sending me half the time an usually it'll put me a couple miles away from my destination while telling me I've arrived. Why couldn't they just play nice with Google

I've had the 5 for about tw days now and absolutely love it. The speed is unreal. Quick question though, has anyone noticed a slight green tint at the bottom of the lock screen? It goes away once unlocked. Odd.

Also, if you tap slightly on the back, do you hear a rattle?

I'm trying to decide what to do with my iPhone 4 now that I have the 5. Anybody here jailbreak? I'm thinking that might be fun. Sell it? Boring. I could just use it as an iPod.

I've noticed this...I've seen speculation it's something in the camera. It doesn't seem to effect my pictures....they look great.

I just sold my 4 to a friend for 60 bucks. I figured I really didn't need it. Is that a decent price for both parties?

more than generous, considering you can get a hundo+ for it from CL.

D'oh. Oh well, it's probably easier to sell to a friend then go through Craigslist.

So I'm thinking of joining the ranks of the unwashed masses and upgrading to an iphone over the weekend from Droid. I think if I renew I can get an iphone 4S 16gb for $100. Is that worth it? a 5 is an extra hundred more, and just a regualr 4 is free. im the kind of guy that will only use it for browsing, texts, an ipod and camera, so I dont need something that does EVERYTHING. Worth dropping a hundred on this weekend? Or are there better droids I should be checking out....its Verizon by the way

Just get the free one.

I'm not an advocate for either platform - despite having an iPhone - but there's no reason to spend $100, when you can get a perfectly usable one for free.
It's not like the 4S is 4G in enabled; if that's your thing, you have to go the 5....4G is nice to have, I'm sure, but 3G is very usable.

I'd go with the 5 if it was me and the money wasn't a huge issue; you're going to have it for 2 years.

There ya go. Don't worry about any of the "4G" talk if you're in the Pittsburgh area. Pittsburgh does not have 4G in place and won't for a quite a while so don't listen to any **** they might try to feed you on that... I probably go 4S just because I love siri, but the 4 for free isn't a bad option either.

Thanks. I have 4G on my droid now, and really don't notice too much of a difference. I work in Pittsburgh, but havent really had too much problem up there either, I thought PGH had 4G by now?
