  • [ FAIL ] Pre Order Now!


    Update: AT&T Premier customers can log in and order.

    iPhone 4 has been available via AT&T online and Apple's online retail store for hours now, but good luck actually getting an order in. Although we've tried for a solid 3 hours to get an order in, we're getting the same results hundreds of users are emailing, tweeting, and pm'ing us - zilch.

    Apple's site looks to be staying up, with a couple 10-15 second "oops!" messages, but it seems AT&T is unable to keep up with the traffic. The AT&T site is down with maintenance messages more often than it's been up, and Apple's pre order process hangs right at the part where it starts communicating with AT&T - either when it checks pricing eligibility, or when it actually gets in to add/replace the line.

    Smartly on Apple's part (which doesn't matter right now since AT&T can't handle the load), it looks like they've moved all iPhone activation to its own subdomain (buyiphone.apple.com) to better handle load management.

    Keep trying I suppose - I'm gonna go have a mocha and an omelette, and do this thing later - no sense sitting in front of a screen pressing refresh for hours when they're obviously TKO'd at the moment.

    Hey - anyone notice the iPhone 4 is only available in black for preorder/launch?

      How do you reserve one online. I thought you could only pre-order?

      Good luck with that. Apple, AT&T, and international carriers don't have it - but Best Buy does?

      Don't shoot the messenger, just repeating what the old lady said I for one wouldn't want the white one anyway, so I didn't care. She actually called to joke with me that she got it for me knowing I wouldn't want the white one. lol
