Best Buy to Offer iPhone 4 Pre-orders on June 15

| News

Apple will begin accepting pre-orders for the new iPhone 4 on June 15, and now Best Buy plans on offering its own pre-order program, too. The new version of Apple’s combination iPod and smartphone will be available on Thursday, June 24.

Apple introduced the iPhone 4 during the company’s keynote presentation at its World Wide Developer Conference on June 7.

The new iPhone model will include Apple’s A4 processor, a higher resolution display, longer battery life, a built-in 5 megapixel camera that supports HD video capture, a front-facing camera for video calls, 802.11n Wi-Fi support, and built-in gyroscope and digital compass. It also sports a redesigned form factor that’s almost 25 percent thinner than the iPhone 3GS and includes a glass front and back.

iPhone 4 pre-orders from Best Buy can be placed Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile locations in the U.S. The iPhone 4 will be available in black or white, and is priced at US$199 for the 16GB model and $299 for the 32GB model.

Do all Best Buy locations have them? The iPhone 4 page on their web site just has a Best Buy Mobile store locator (which there isn’t one near me).

Where would be the best place to pre-order? Online from Apple, then take it in to an AT&T store to activate (since it needs the mini-SIM card)? Or go to an Apple store (1 hour away, possible crowds)? Can they activate it at an Apple store? Or should I bother trying to get it from an AT&T store?


ordering from apple or at&t and have it shipped.  it should come with the micro-sim (you actually have a mini-sim now).  all prior iphones have come with the sim already inserted.  activation is through itunes.


I’m going to go to FutureShop (it’s a Canada thing) They can do the activation, have a choice of carriers, and now if you buy the iPhone outright they have pay as you go options.

Woo Hoo!

AT&T iPhone Pre-Order FAQ

RadioShack will apparently have pre-orders as well.

Although Wal-Mart will sell the iPhone 4, there have been no official reports whether they will have pre-orders, despite what some have claimed on discussion forums.  If Wal-Mart is your closest option, your best bet would be to call the store.

You will also be able to go to Apple’s Online and Retail stores starting on the 15th to place a pre-order.

You will be able to get upgrade pricing from all of the companies.
