Oh, the things I do for mobile and this blog. After multiple attempts, I finally was able to plaee a pre-order through Apple.com for a black 32GB iPhone 4 for $299 ($319.93 after tax, shipped free). I opted to keep my current unlimited data plan for $30 instead of step down to a 2GB data plan at $25. I figured with the new iPhone, I'll be doing some serious data usage and the $5/mo extra is an affordable cushion.
As it stands, estimated ship date is July 2nd and arrival date is July 6 to 8th. Stay tuned.
