  • [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:

      So if I go to my local AT&T store and they are saying we can pre-order both, think we should just order black anyway so we don't get disappointed for release day.

      I would be SOOOOOOOOOOOOO pissed if I went to get my phone or heard that white was back ordered. I would demand for me to get a black phone that day.

      I don't hate the black either so I'm going to try and look up a few pictures and convince myself i want that one instead, haha. Although, white looks AMAZING and wish I could get that one.

      ok so am i reading this correctly...i went to apple site and did a fake order with a 3gs just to see if i can sign up for new service via apple instead of att, so i got to the billing info and it says this in the lower rules portion "Your monthly AT&T bill will be sent to this address and, if purchasing via the Apple Online Store, your phone will also be shipped to this address. (We cannot ship to PO boxes.)" so does that mean i can't get my phone shipped to my work? i won't be home the 24th or the 25th to be able to sign for it, so i wanted to ship it to my work so i or someone else will be there to sign...if i preorder from the store tomorrow instead of online do you think i can explain that i need it shipped to my work? anyone know?

      Is the apple pre-order process almost the same as at&t? People card won't get charge until it start shipping?

      I don think it matters what color u get. Your still gonna be disappointed in it. Still a nice design on the outside. But nothing worth committing suicide over just yet. Wait another 6 months and they will add an (S) behind the 4G.

      HTC FOR THE WIN!!!!!

      I drive for UPS so I can tell you that if we have this account, which we probably do, you WILL have to sign for this package, and there will probably be a restriction on allowing neighbors to sign for you. We delivered the iPad, so NONE were left w/o a Signature and all were delivered to the Consignees. Have a little faith in the big shippers guy.

      Is this a joke, or a really bad attempt at justifying why you ended-up with an HTC? Do you feel better now that you posted this in an attempt to make yourself sleep better over owning an HTC device? Honestly, this is too funny. No one is gonna commit suicide unless they open their new iPhone 4 box and find an EVO inside it. lol

      I used to mod and develop ROMS for HTC devices like the Tilt, etc, and as nice as some of the new HTC's look (EVO), they're not touching the iPhone. Of course this is all open for opinion, but after working on both, I'll stick with my opinion that HTC devices are sub-par to the iPhone.

      I do I've never been disappointed by any (USPS, FedEx, UPS). I've just read a bunch of people complaining about AT&T being cheap and not requiring signature on a $700 phone, and it being left outside the house. I personally think it's BS, but if you do a Google Search, it's mentioned in the AT&T, Apple, MacRumors, and Modmyi Forums.

      alright so let me hear some pros and cons to each color... disregarding the fact that according to this thread "white phones are for girls.. and black ones are obviously badass"... so far the only pros are
      Black - Hides the camera nicely behind the glass
      White - Less finger prints, Looks pretty unique

      You have to also account for lifetime issues. Apple's had some bad rep over white devices after some usage (white turning yellow/dark). Deep scratches seem to camouflage better in a black phone.

      Wait can I do an "early upgrade" to an iPhone 4 via apple.com? Or do I have to go in stores?

      I second that. I work for Fedex. You can leave a signed note with your signature and date. We will leave the iPhone at your front door. But remember when you leave a signed note you are taking full responsibility and if anything happens to your iPhone it's not our fault since you authorized the release. But anyway Both Us and UPS will be very busy on the 24th. Good thing for me is that I can get my iPhone before I leaves our station for delivery.

      No your not a bad person for wanting it in pink. I think Apple should support the breast cancer awareness program and offer a pink iPhone.

      I have had no issue with the white phone. Had a white 3GS since release. Not even a single hint of yellow or any other color. Most of that has to do with the cases people carry them in.

      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.
      Those people ******** about missing deliveries live in a ****** area where the delivery person doesn't want to wait around for a signature.

      Just order the god damn phone and continue on with your sad life. Go to the store and sit in line if you're that worried.
