  • AT&T to get 2 iPhone Shipments Tuesday
    [ EXCLUSIVE ]



    [UPDATED: the store manager will tell people how many iPhones are coming in the second shipment.]

    Just got a leak from AT&T Ninja about Tuesday's iPhone 4 shipment to retail stores. Apparently, the shipment is coming in two waves, with an early one Monday night that is expected to sell out quickly and a stealth 2nd shipment Tuesday between 10:30 and noon. The store manager will [not] wait until all the iPhone 4s are gone before telling the people in line that a second shipment is coming. They'll take "reservations" from the people still in line when they sell out, so they're suggesting people stay in line in case some of the people in line don't buy because they don't have upgrade eligibility or they're over their limit on their credit card… what the document calls "fallout."

    They are also setting aside 2% of all the phones they get - half 16GBs and half 32GBs, for "customer escalations," presumably this means phones that customers bring back and want replaced.

    An inventory report will be available Monday afternoon to the store mangers that will indicate exactly how many iPhone 4 (16GB and 32GB) they will receive in their Monday and Tuesday shipments. The manager is to subtract 2% with a 50/50 split of 16GB and 32GB. This will provide some inventory for customer escalations.
    Apparently, this is all being done "to ensure an extraordinary customer experience."

      If I was a Mod things would not have got this far.
      Can people please grow up?

      Wow............ I went to check this thread out, I read the entire thing, I scrolled down to look for comments that have to do with the subject of this thread, and there was nothing. Seriously shut up if someone wants to make fun of someone and you think they're stupid for it just scroll down it makes all your worries disappear.

      Ok on topic now. Does anyone know anything about the upgrade plans. They said back in the beggining of the month that anyone who bought a 3gs after may 20th(?was it that date) can upgrade to an iphone 4 on the release date. Does anyone know if I would still be able to upgrade to an iphone 4(I bought it like may 26th), because they sold out on the release date, for the normal upgrade cost? If not then well screw you at&t.

      The topic? Who cares about the topic?!

      We need to just Photoshop -guy into all future crowd shots on MMi and see how long it takes for us to stop focusing on him and start discussing the topic at hand.

      He could be like our very own Kotaku pointing fish.


      Hmm... seeing his size compared to the other people, one must wonder: Is this possibly already being done? Are we being trolled?

      I'm exchanging my 3GS at ATT Store here on Tuesday. They told me the deadline was extended. I bought mine on the 22nd. Of course I have to wait in line.

      Agreed. There have been a number of instances over the past week or so that I've lost quite a bit of respect for the mods of this site. Turning a blind eye, having double-standards, arguing with members and telling them to "STFU" are all things that are unacceptable for a moderator to be participating in.

      Hey everybody, enjoy your life, that guy looks funny and thats it, if instead of him is what me, you are going to see me making jokes about me with you all, we are just trying to have fun here, after all this iphone 4 mess up, discharging our stress. You are worring too much for that guy and picture. Maybe he saw his picture and hes laughing about everything and you are worring about him or even cant sleep because that. Its nothing about disrespect him. Dont tell me that you never made jokes about somebody before. If not, you are lying. The only saints that we have in here are the superbowl champions from New Orleans. If that bothers you, I think you cant go to one standup comedy show or even look at it on the TV because you are going to run out of there instantly.

      By making the jokes that have been made on this thread it is being implied that homosexuality is something wrong and inferior. That's what I take issue with; people so immature as to find things like this humorous baffle me to no end. Who cares if he's ***? Only those who poke fun at him, nobody else gives a crap. No similar comments would be tolerated by these mods if they were directed towards women, blacks, etc.

      Could a mod please discuss treating everyone with respect and not do any homophobic jokes? This board has helped me a lot with jailbreaking, but all these homophobic comments are pissing me off.

      If you have an issue with a post, please press the report post button and a member of our staff will be alerted to the issue. In case you are having issues finding the button, I have made an easy 1 step guide for you to follow. Its quite easy.

      If you have an issue with me or another moderator, please PM us so we can handle your grievance.



      To everyone else, Please stay on topic. There is no reason for all the homosexual jokes. In fact it is kind of ironic that you make all the jokes about the guy in the blue shirt when several main members of the hacking teams are in fact homosexual.

      Just keep it to AT&T's supply of iPhone 4. kthx

      Dude I only commented on the phrase the guy used. No one had posted in hours. I Did apologize in advance. But on topic someone asked why they would get two shipments on the same day. Only reason I know of is some routes have multiple trucks for different freight and air shipments and sometimes heavier boxes are on other trucks than those of lesser weight..... i dunno

      So, did the shipments come in today? I'm expecting mine in the mail today but that's because my brother obtained it at launch and shipped it that night.

      FAIL for using the wrong your/you're and making the dude in the background barely any more noticable.
