  • [EXCLUSIVE] iPhone 4 ONLY in Black Initially


    Another of our AT&T sources has let us know AT&T's latest iPhone 4 release info.

    Apparently (see above image emailed to AT&T employees) the iPhone 4 will ONLY be available in black for pre-orders and launch. The initial lineup will be the 3G[S] in 8GB, and the black iPhone 4 at 16GB and 32GB.

    The white 16GB and 32GB iPhone 4 will be available "later this summer."

    iPhone 4 pre-orders being tomorrow (specific time has not been announced, but the iPad started being available on apple.com around 3-4AM PST when it was available for pre-order).

    Of course this is only through AT&T, but it doesn't seem Apple would short-change their partner in distributing the devices - no official word from Apple on the release of the iPhone 4 yet other than what we've already released - launch the 24th, pre-order the 15th.

    Looks like maybe their production warehouses didn't get those white ones done in time. Either that, or only enough for Apple themselves to sell.

    UPDATE 9:16 AM EST: Well, this about confirms it:

      Excuse me? White is only for girls... I don't think so.

      And btw, I talked to Apple and they didn't say the white iPhone would be unavailable if you pre-order from them..

      Someone trying to stop someone from buying an iphone during launch so they could swoop in line without someone pushing the person to be the first with the i4 .

      Just wondering if you guys think it is better to pre-order the phone from AT&T or apple? I was thinking that apple has a better ordering/tracking system but i figured i'd get your opinions on it. Thanks!

      Pre-ordering with Apple because it will arrive on launch day.

      I've heard AT&T orders also arrive on the same day, but the delivery service is worst (no signature required, delivering in wrong house, etc).

      Just called local AT&T store... The guy said if I pre order it tomorrow, I will "most likely get it on te first day (the 24th) but I can't promise u anything". He said generally the people that pre-order right away get it the day it's released. He also confirmed that they will be opening at 7am on the 24th. When I asked about how to go about pre ordering, he said "he is not sure about pre ordering online, either through apple.com or AT&T.com, and said it's best to come into
      the store and pre order....? He couldn't give me a clear answer on this one. Anyone out there with experience pre ordering... Is it best to go into AT&T...I can't just pre order online? That's what this guy made it soun like, that can't
      be right.

      Yea... you really got ******. On behalf of Apple, I'm deeply sorry for this tragedy of not having the choice of a white iphone. How will you go on?

      What? The posts here are hilarious. Apple & AT&T use the same shippers that anybody would - Fedex or UPS. You think that AT&T uses some unknown shipper that delivers to the wrong house......?

      I'm repeating what many others have said in these and other forums. Do you not think signature service should be required for a $700 phone? Obviously it would prevent wrong deliveries.

      Wow. Lol way to be sarcastic (fail). If you owned a multi-billion corporation and you would advertise something in such large scale and then the day before pre-ordering fail to complete it, then yes it would be F'ing up. Try again.
