Beverly Center Apple Store: Black 16 gig and white 16 gig in stock. 20-minute wait.
Pasadena Apple Store: ALL MODELS IN STOCK, but running low on white 16 gig. 1 1/2hr wait.

Glendale Galleria Apple Store: "We can't guarantee that if you come down to the store now you'll get a phone."
Century City Apple Store: White 16 gig in stock. 1-1 1/2hr wait.
