[ 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
