    Hey everybody, so I'm getting an iPhone 4, but the people at the Apple Store said it could take up to two weeks, while the people at AT&T said that its on average 5 days for them, but I'd have to pay up front. So I ask you, which one should I go for? The Apple one is guaranteed around the 2-3 week mark if not less, and they wouldn't lie. However the lady at AT&T gets a commission, so she could have been lying about the average to get a sale, and also it could mean that 1 person got in one day, and another in 10 days. So which would do?
    Thanks

    Personally I would choose AT&T, because even if she is "bending" the truth a bit (such as by 5 days), it's still less time than from Apple (10 days vs. 14 days min.). Plus, if you have any questions or need any assistance, you can get help right then and there at AT&T when you pick up your device.

    Friend of mine here at work ordered the iPhone 4 from AT&T over the phone last week, I think Wednesday .. and he got shipping notification yesterday. I'll confirm with him today, but that's a lot faster than what I was expecting from AT&T, given that the waiting time from Apple is 2-3 weeks.

    I would choose Apple. I have been on the list for one for about a week and a half, but I have always had a good experience at the Apple store. It is a longer wait, but the consumer experience is better IMO.

    Can you renew your AT&T contract (i.e. upgrade a line) at the Apple store? Or would I be having to take a trip to the AT&T store for that anyways?

    Pretty sure apple store does it all. Be really dumb to buy it at the Apple store with the knowledge that you have to go to the AY&T to finish the purchase lol.
