iPhone 4 Pre-order: Your game plan?

By Peter Chubb - Jun 14, 2010

We have just a few more hours until you can pre-order your iPhone 4, Apple has not given a specific time but we will know when the Apple Store has the “we’ll be back soon” message. There are so many ways for you to pre-order the fourth-generation iPhone, but the online Apple Store is your best option if you want a guarantee to get the handset on the day of its release – June 24, 2010.

Chris Ziegler from Engadget reckons that the easiest way is to order online, there are those who will choose to go to an Apple Store, but they will only take you to one of their Macs for you to pre-order anyway – so you might as well stay at home. I have chosen to queue up in the past, but I will order mine online – saves all the hassle.

As we mentioned above, we are uncertain of a time but you should wait until midnight Eastern Standard Time, which was the time when Apple made the iPad available for pre-order. You do not have to just use the Apple store, you can also visit AT&T stores or online. However, you will have to pay the full amount up front.

If you do not have a solid game plan yet then why not try a number of third-party retailers, such as RadioShack, Best Buy and Wal-mart.
