Yep. I preordered and mine showed up on the 23rd.
Best phone I've ever used. My favorite part is the screen. There is some controversy about the definition of a "retina" display, but this is the first time I've ever seen an electronic display with characters as sharp as a printed page. It makes everything else look like yesterday's technology. I can only hope that Apple rolls out this level of sharpness on everything else they make and everyone else follows suit.
The case is very minimalist, which I love. This is the best looking iPhone ever, just gorgeous. Nothing unnecessary is there.
The speed is a touch slower than my iPad, but it's plenty serviceable. I could not be happier with it.
Except for the service. AT&T is welcome to lick my nether regions. I'll dump them the first chance I'll get.
By the way, Apple knows very well how much everyone hates AT&T. Further, they know that their marketshare will shoot up once they get on other carriers. I do applaud Apple for (so far) honoring their contract with AT&T. But I'm 99% sure the iPhone will be *everywhere* once the exclusivity is over.
You can tell that Apple is trending that way because the iPad is not locked to AT&T. Other providers can - and will - offer 3G for it. Three million iPads have sold so far. You know that other carriers will want a piece of that market.
