Reserve iPhone 4S For Pickup Apple Retail Store
Apple updated their “how to buy” page with the above message. “iPhone 4S is available in store by reservation only. Reserve yours after 9:00 p.m. tonight for pickup tomorrow. When you come in, you will choose a carrier and plan, and we will get your iPhone up and running before you leave the store.” So Apple retail stores in the United States and Canada are now selling the device on a reservation-only basis. This has ofcourse something to do with the amazing sales numbers i posted earlier today. “Customers will need to visit Apple’s site after 9:00 PM each evening to reserve a phone for the following day.” » iPhone 4S Sales Now Reservation-Only At Apple Retail Stores in U.S. & Canada
