News: iPhone 4 Sold Out at Apple and AT&T
In about 14 hours, despite some computer failures and other frustrating setbacks, iPhone 4 pre-orders are pretty much over…for now. AT&T was the first to state that any orders made after 1:30 PM Pacific Time (4:30 Eastern Time) will get their iPhone 4 sometime between June 25 and July 5.
AT&T issued a statement:
“Because of the incredible interest in iPhone 4, today was the busiest online sales day in AT&T history. As of Tuesday afternoon, customers who preorder iPhone 4 moving forward will receive their device on June 25 or later, depending on when the order is placed. We’ll email customers with confirmation once their order is placed, and again when it ships. In addition, we will have devices available on a first-come, first-serve basis in our stores beginning on June 24.”
Later this evening, Apple changed iPhone 4 availability to “Ships: By July 2″, essentially saying that Apple is sold out for the time being. Of course, the white iPhone 4 never was available today, and you can still get an 8GB iPhone 3GS by June 24.
It may be frustrating if you didn’t get your name on the list today, but either way, this is really impressive for Apple, AT&T, and the other carriers throughout the world that sell the iPhone.
