You still reserved one.
It stands to reason that as soon as they have enough stock for upgrades, that those that preregistered will be the first people to be able to purchase one.
I just can't believe the complaining about this (not aimed at you SharpieFiend, just speaking generally here). If you're looking to upgrade, then you're already a customer and have a phone already. It's not like you're doing without in any way.
If you're in that much of a hurry, that you absolutely MUST have the phone when it first comes out, then you aren't buying a phone, you're buying a status symbol.
First world problems... Geez....
Why is it wrong to want to be one of the first to have the shiny new toy?
To be told I have to wait a month (if true) and the 'exclusive' deal is a $25 discount (if true, but I doubt it) feels to me like a steel toed kick to the crotch.
