Availability: They only have the 16 gig in white

Availability: Do you have all the phones in stock? "Right now, yes we do."
Color: What is the best time to show up to get a voucher? "Early in the morning. Definitely before 10am."
Line length: Two hours
Availability: "We have all the 16 gigs, none of the 8s"
Color: "Get here as soon as you can" to get a phone.
