  • iFail 4 Continues: No iPhones at RS Tomorrow?


    The hits just keep coming.

    In an oddly cheery-yet-gloomy Facebook post, RadioShack has informed its customers that "we are not able to fulfill all requests for the iPhone 4 on launch day." After chirping excitedly that "The Shack can’t wait until Thursday!" the post drops the bomb on its customers who pre-ordered (or made a Customer Request in "Shack" lingo). It does make the hopeful promise that "we will receive additional inventory when supply is available," before going right on to dash those hopes by saying they "have no timing information yet." KTHX!!

    A CrunchGear reader emailed John Biggs to say that a" RadioShack Store Manager just let me know that due to demand, none of the RadioShack’s were getting phones." The Facebook post notes that "select" RadioShacks "will have the iPhone 4 at launch." The post was not specific about which stores were the select stores, or how many there would even be: it could be a hundred, or it could be one or two.

    The RadioShack pre-order process has been a confusing experience for a lot of customers. Soon after orders began on June 14, RadioShack began taking "Customer Requests" rather than sales orders. Receipts issued from at least one store read "this request does not reserve a specific iPhone or guarantee availability for the customer."

      I got mine from Radio Shack yesterday. They only received 2 out of the 30 they were supposed to get. I got 1 of the 2 because I have an inside source.

      Is anyone really shocked? Best Buy and ATT announced troubles already. Did you REALLY think that of all the companies carrying the phone Radio Shack would be the one without a hitch?

      LoL. I'm not surprised, RS is always falling behind in everything. Not to mention that their prices suck. I'm sorry for the guys/gals who actually "requested" it at RS...

      Im only going with radio shack because they are accepting trade-ins. They are offering 209 dollars of store credit for my 3gs 16GB. I didnt feel like going through the hassle of trying to sell it to a person so I found this convenient. Essentially, when they do get some iphone 4's in, I will be able to walk into radio shack and upgrade to an iPhone 4 16GB for free or an 32GB for about 100 bucks.

      --May not sound like a good idea to some but saying its idiotic isnt really necessary.
      --And I didnt expect them to have any on launch day once I heard the big boys were having issues with inventory but I still like my decision to go with RS and Ill just be patient.

      You guys getting really lucky. The radioshack I pre-ordered at is not getting any and I am first on the list. There is only 20 iPhone 4s for the entire district of stores!

      You Non-American. Im sorry I actually care about my Country. I Guess its not ok to talk about what you are passionate about anymore. Im pretty sure there's people that will actually appreciate what i did & hopefully spread the word themselves.

      Even though you may not care about Football (Soccer) or The World Cup. It is still a huge Honor and a privilege to host it in your own country. Theres about 9 or 10 other countries fighting for it. I hope there's not too many people like you. A persons patriotism & dedication to their country says a lot about their character. I Would say yours isn't very strong.

      I'm waiting to get mine..prolly till most of the 'rush' dies down. I would never get the iPhone 4 from Radio Shack. I dread going in there just to get some wires or whatever. Always get bombarded by every employee in the store trying to sell me on something. If there's another customer in the store...maybe. If there's no one else..hellz no. Freakin' commission.

      I'm just gonna check out Apple next week. I live in a major city, so it's gonna be hella crazy tomorrow.

      I ordered an Invisible Shield 2 weeks ago (a few days after ZAGG started selling them for the iPhone 4) and they had the nerve to ship it last Monday...I'm really mad at them because now I'll have to wait to use my iPhone too (getting it tomorrow hopefully); it'll probably be days before I get my Invisible Shield in the mail.
