  • 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.

      Who else went to an actual AT&T Store? I went to an AT&T store around 6:00 p.m. EST and they took my preorder no problem. Said that it would be shipped to my home anytime between the 24th and 1st of July. Placed my order, charged my card (put the hold on the card) and I have a receipt. I went to www.wireless.att.com/order_status and it says the order was placed and no ship time.

      My issue is, anyone else that went to the actual AT&T store, did you get an e-mail? I gave them my e-mail address, didn't receive one but when I go to the website to check order status, it shows that I placed an order and it's "in progress" anyone else get an e-mail that went in person?

      BoostedEvolX: As far as I know they only put a hold on it which means they just allot that amount of cash on your credit card but don't take it. They did the same thing to my card when I went to the AT&T store. Also, on the AT&T website order status, about an hour ago I typed everything in and it worked fine and gave me some information. I never received an e-mail as well. Something might be down with the website AGAIN because I went to go look at my information again and it's giving me that same error message, but if you look at the top it mentions something about it MAY NOT show up if the order was placed within the last 24 hours. Lets hope

      I got my pre order in around 7pm PST and the end of the transaction is says delivery date of the 24th but when I got the email it says the 2nd. When will my phone get here. This is BS I would have opted for the instore pick up if I knew I wasn't going to get it on launch.

      Here's something interesting, on AT&T's order status website, it has 9 columns: Item, Description, Status, Ship Date, QTY Ordered, QTY Shipped, QTY Back-Ordered, Carrier and Tracking Number.

      There are 3 items the first time I looked and 2nd time I looked
      Description is 1)Freight (the shipping) 2)iPhone 4 3)Various SIM

      Status first time and second time on all 3 was "In Progress"

      QTY Ordered both times was 1
      QTY Shipped both times was 0

      Here's where the kicker is
      First time I looked, QTY Back-Ordered said 1 on all 3.

      I just looked 2 minutes ago on the website once it let me and QTY Back-Ordered changed to 0 which means that it was accepted I guess, I have no clue what they could mean, but I'm happy it's not showing up as Back Ordered on my status anymore

      If this aint the biggest BS.

      I was wondering why I never got my conf email.


      Turns out in all the haste, I put one too many letters in my email addy so that possible conf is lost in the wind.


      and OF COURSE, apple's Order Status check service is down.


      craaaaaaaaap!

      walked in very leisurely to my local at&t store,
      placed my name on the waitlist to be helped by a rep
      went to bestbuy to grab the drake album
      came back, ordered, and left!

      very good day today.
      also; i heard anybody who ordered iphone 4 after 1:00pm (Pacific) will receive their iphones 1-3 business days after launch date. thats HORRIBLE
      that came directly from an at&t customer service rep. so take it as you will.

      Ok I finally got my order in at apple.com for the July 2nd ship date. Not to apple bash especially since I am one of the suckers buying their product but why in the hell is standard shipping for an arrival the 6th to 8th the only f***** option on their website. Seriously... we should get overnight Saturday delivery for this bullsh*t.

      I wonder if anyone has an answer to this question. If I happen to wait in line at AT&T and get lucky enough to get an iPhone does that automatically cancel my apple order? Can I even stand in line if I am preordered?

      Of all the power and glory of the iPhone 4 the problem is AT&T service sucks and I can say tmobile rarely drops any my calls maybe 1-3 per year?

      ^ aparently any pre orders done by at&t will be sent to your home address. not in-store (like last year).

      due to excessively high traffic volumes
