    Is pre-ordering with an upgrade still broken? Last I checked you could only pre-order if you were a new customer or adding a line of service.... It's supposed to be fixed soon though, right?

    Why are people so shook up with this pre-ordering?? You'll get it faster by going to the store on the 12th. If you pre-order you have to wait on the shipping company and you know how that goes.

    Actually, no - pre-orders typically will arrive on the day of release. Pre-order with enough stock and the device is shipped out the day before to you.

    In my case, since FedEx/UPS/DHL all hit before 9:30, I would get a pre-order before a store purchase. And I'd not have to deal with the dopes in the store, on either side of the counter.

    I think the reason they say that is because the phone is being released on the 12th.. that is a sunday

    most places do not get deliverys on a sunday..

    meaning you will be lucky to get it on the 14th.. and possibly later as shipments are being shipped on the 13th.

    And to think - I thought the rumors had the release on 07/13.

    I guess the few states that still have blue laws prohibiting the sale of many items on Sunday will be left out if this thing hits on a Sunday.

    the rumors were the 13th but to be off by a day from months out and have it be a day earlier...

    is pretty incredible..

    is there really a law somewhere that things can't be sold on a sunday?

    Last I heard the upgrade link is still broken. We were just talking about it at break.
    Telesales is working around it though. I cant say how, but they are doing it.

    Yes - and still in effect in many states.

    When I lived in Texas (late seventies/early eighties), they had a Blue Law. They repealed most or all of it somewhere around 1985 or so. You couldn't buy a car or alcoholic beverages, and some were rather bizarre. You could buy a hammer, but not nails. You could buy a wired phone, but not a phone cable and not a cordless phone.

    I found a decent explanation at Answers.com that gives a fairly rounded, if incomplete, overview:

    blue law: Definition from Answers.com

    As a sidenote, I called two stores here - both gave me July 13 as the release for the Tour. With one, I told them rumor had the 12th and was told they don't release devices on Sunday.

    Where I am, pretty much all phones launch on Sundays (I get to do all the merchandising and stay late on Saturdays... yay!).
