It’s the zero hour, and those iPhone 3GS units need to hurry up and get to their final AT&T Store destinations. Wonder how a launch of this size gets managed? Check out the video above, which shows workers at an AT&T distribution center getting the iPhone 3GS scanned, boxed, and ready to ship for tomorrow’s launch.
If you are looking to pick up an iPhone 3GS from an AT&T Store tomorrow morning, you’ll want to check out the video above to details on how everything is going to flow tomorrow morning. Basically, stores open at 7:00 AM, and you’ll be able to enter first if you have a pre-ordered phone waiting for you. As soon as the pre-order line is done, you can enter to purchase an iPhone 3GS if you did not pre-order. That second line is good for both current and new AT&T customers, but if you are new, you should head to the AT&T iPhone page first so you can get through the process a bit quicker, since you’ll be pre-qualified.
If you’re an AT&T customer wanting to get the low-down on the iPhone 3GS launch plans, Seth Bloom of AT&T has put up the video above to help you out. Seth goes into pricing (although he doesn’t explain some of the gross iPhone 3GS pricing discrepancies), and how the $199/299 price points are only for “new and qualifying” customers. He also says that on launch day, June 19, two lines will form at AT&T Stores. One for those who have pre-ordered the device, and another for those who need to make a purchase. Pre-orders get picked up at 7 AM, which regular purchasers will need to wait until the store opens at normal business hours. Last, the current iPhone 3G is now available for $99 for the 8GB model, and the 16GB model is now selling for $149, while supplies last.
