  • Sold Out! July 2nd New iPhone 4 Ship Date


    Fewer than twenty-four hours have passed since preordering began for the 4th generation iPhone. Already, the supply has been virtually decimated - a reality that, according to at least one published report, became evident as early as 1:30pm PST Tuesday.

    And just imagine how many prospective buyers would have actually pulled the trigger on the new iPhone today if servers hadn't exploded and otherwise melted down at the moment of truth. Nonetheless, we at MMi hope for your sake that you managed to get your order in. Otherwise, all new orders will now be subject to a new ship date - July 2nd.

    AT&T's response, as chronicled by our friends at BGR:

    Because of the incredible interest in iPhone 4, today was the busiest online sales day in AT&T history. As of Tuesday afternoon, customers who preorder iPhone 4 moving forward will receive their device on June 25 or later, depending on when the order is placed. We’ll email customers with confirmation once their order is placed, and again when it ships. In addition, we will have devices available on a first-come, first-serve basis in our stores beginning on June 24.
    If you're looking to preorder a white iPhone, you're really out of luck, as Apple has even asked Best Buy to stop accepting preorders for the white model.

    As it stands, AT&T will notify customers via email with confirmations of order placement and eventual shipment. Unfortunately, AT&T will only have a limited number of new iPhones on hand come launch day (June 24th) on a first-come, first-serve basis. So serious are the supply issues at AT&T that the carrier has even temporarily blocked iPhone 4 pre-orders from employees. Nonetheless, it now appears that it will take some time for supply to catch up with the demand - overwhelming demand, that is.

    Last week, we reported that Robert Lai, chairman of Asia Optical, revealed that his company has been turning out some massive shipments of VGA lens kits for the updated iPhone's front-facing video camera since last month - enough, in fact, to place a monthly production estimate at three million units. Despite what was believed to be a swollen inventory of new iPhones, the initial batch apparently wasn't sufficient.

    And, as a result, getting the 4th generation iPhone could very well take longer than many of us had hoped.

      So this is just for AT&T pre-orders? I was so happy when I got the email from Apple confirming delivery on the 24th after I ordered mine at 4pm today. Wonder how long/if Apple will run into this problem of selling out for the 24th delivery date?

      i got a response but, it is pretty vague... says orders will be fulfilled beginning on the 24th. I got my order in at around 6:15am out here in hawaii (9:15am pacific)...

      the email was delayed but, i received it within the hour of me ordering...

      but, i'm relatively confident i will have my phone by the 24th...

      but can someone tell me the pros/cons of ordering at either apple online or att online??

      i had both sites up trying to do it as soon as i noticed the preorder now pop up but, servers constantly went down so i just went to bed (benefit of being in a different time zone i guess)

      Pardom my language but, i think it's ******** that we have to wait till next month. If Apple wants my bussiness then they should honor that every costumer who ordered today, get its iphone on the 25th it's the least they could do. IMHO

      i don't think so.....
      its more likely you have it shipped to house, shipped to store, or try and get it launch day (camping)

      I'm sure we will get confirmation emails in a few days, I imagine they are swamped right now.

      I ordered mine from AT&T right as the pre-orders went live and I haven't received anything yet. My credit card has been charged and my upgrade date has now changed to November 2011 though, so I'm assuming it went through

      flxj21, you're guaranteed to camp in line.

      twiggystar, how do you suggest they provide phones that don't exist?

      anyway, pre-ordered 32gb black at 5am eastern with no problems on the at&t premier business site. got email confirmation with june 24 delivery, and order tracking went from received to processing

      Honoring millions of iPhones within a week? Don't be so impatient. You pre-ordered, you'll get it.

      Be lucky you can actually pre-order and get your phone. Us Canadians have to wait while all of you are making love to your sweet sweet iPhone 4's.
