iPhone 4 Release Date, iPhone 4 Coming Early for Pre Order Customers?

While talking with an AT&T representative today about the details on pre ordering the iPhone 4, the rep made a statement that really caught my attention. The statement made was this:

“If you pre order the iPhone 4 through the AT&T website, then the iPhone 4 will ship to the stores on or before June 24th.”

The before June 24th part of her statement really caught me off guard because much like all of you, I’ve been under the impression that the release date of the iPhone 4 would be June 24th, as stated in Steve Jobs’ keynote speech on the iPhone 4 announcement.

I wasn’t able to get the representative to clarify the on or before statement.

So if you pre order the iPhone 4 through the AT&T website, is it possible then to actually get the iPhone 4 before the “official” release date of June 24th?

Does anyone have any insight into this?

I’d have to also assume that if this is the case with pre ordering the iPhone 4 through the AT&T website, then it would also be true of pre ordering through the Apple Store website as well.
