Ah, Steve, of course. How could I have suspected some teenage? They get all the bad rap and the corporate guy in suit gets away with pranks.
Hope you will get one today. Apple stores definitely have more inventory than ATT store. So they are your best bet. In this case, ATT stores really should have more phones than the Apple stores because there are more carriers questions, decisions and issues than just buying a phone and activate it at home like the last iPhone launch.
Keep me posted and good luck!
