    I don't think so tbh Josh, if they DO accept reservations I can call free myself from here (and I will tomorrow to ask them just in case).

    I don't think there'll be any rule saying only locals can reserve, but as Tom says, there may well be a rule saying they just don't reserve them at all.

    I'm kinda hoping there wont really be any shortage anyway but with my luck :/

    Ohh.. I'd always thought that state-to-state calls would be costly and didn't think they'd reserve them for a tourist.

    I suppose the only thing you can do is ask Could you order one for store pick-up rather than reserving?

    With voice over IP, these days we pop out pretty much anywhere in the world for a few pence or even free.

    and didn't think they'd reserve them for a tourist.
    Normally places that do reserve stuff say "ok we'll keep it for you until x/y/2010" so they tend to have nothing to lose if someone doesnt turn up.

    I suppose the only thing you can do is ask Could you order one for store pick-up rather than reserving?
    That was what I was thinking but it doesnt seem to be an option

    I'm fairly sure you made a slight error when you say 'reserve me ONE'
