I just restored from my iCloud backup.

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.

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

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

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
