Apple says two iPhones per person

Apple details rules for iPhone purchasers.

First come, first served Apple.com

Attention iPhone line sitters: you can forget about hoarding devices for later sale on eBay. Apple announced this morning that iPhone sales will be limited to two per person, max. Interestingly, that's one more than the AT&T stores will allow you to buy. Also, Apple stores will close at 2 p.m. tomorrow to give staff time to prepare for the masses. Then, after reopening at 6 p.m., the stores will stay open until midnight. And just so you don't make a trip in vain, Apple is offering a handy-dandy tool for checking iPhone availability at your local store. It won't tell you how many are available, just if the store has them or not. At the time of this writing, all the stores we checked had a green light.

If you're hoping to avoid the line by making your purchase online, take note that Apple.com will take iPhone orders beginning at 6 p.m. PDT. Sorry for the wait, East Coast folks, but all orders will get free shipping.

If you're lucky enough to snag an iPhone, Apple will offer iPhone workshops beginning the morning of Saturday, June 30. You can sign up on Apple.com to get a full lesson in making calls (how hard can it be?), sending e-mail, and surfing the Web. And if you want more of a fix, the "Going Further" course will cover syncing media, searching with Google Maps, using widgets, and more.
