It's six days and counting until the big iPhone release day this coming Friday at 6 p.m. your time.

I have to think that this weekend- at least a few of you, have been to or are planning to visit your local AT&T Mobility Store or Apple Store, seeking info about the iPhone.

Although there are no iPhones in stock, I am sure that in-store sales types and employees are busy answering lots of iPhone questions at this very moment from mall-strolling weekend shoppers. That's because these stores are a vital link in the iPhone supply chain.

What types of questions will they answer? Better yet, what types of questions should you ask?

Here are a few:

  • Will iPhone actually go on sale at 6 p.m. Friday?
  • How many iPhones will you have in stock at 6 p.m.?
  • Will you take a waiting list?
  • What about lines? Will I be allowed to wait online in the mall? If so, when?
  • How many iPhones will I be able to buy at once?
  • Can I trade in my older AT&T Wireless phone for store credit against my iPhone purchase?
  • Can I trade in my older iPod for credit against my iPhone purchase?
  • Will I be able to try iPhone in the store before I get to the register?
  • For Apple Stores: Will your "Genius Bar" offer on-site iPhone configuration/setup?

If you happened to ask these questions- or are planning to later this weekend- let us know via comment to this post what the AT&T Mobility or Apple store rep told you. General impressions are also good.

And finally- if you couldn't resist taking a photo of a store window in which iPhone was displayed, let us know where you've posted it (i.e., Flickr).
