  • 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.

      I ordered my iPhone yesterday from Apple for the no commitment price of $699 later in the day figuring I will just get it in July. However I never got a confirmation email so I went through the process again and again no email so I gave up. Today I got two separate emails for two different iPhone orders. I thought Apple was only allowing one iPhone order per account? I am not really sure if I should try to cancel it and go through the hassle given their likely call volume or if I should just let it go and if two show up try to resell on craigslist. I should be able to at least get my money back I hope.

      The more I read all this problems with order problems and inventory on iPhone 4, the more I realize how much I do not need this iPhone 4. Already have iPhone 3GS, is this iPhone 4 that much better than 3GS that I want to spend $400 for smaller storage newest version? Do I really need the camera when I do not like to be photographed? Do I need high def video that eats memory like crazy? Do I need to play with apps that is for the iPad? Is the faster CPU going to be that much better for me?
      Sad truth is no for all of the above, so you guys have 1 less person to compete against. Happy hunting for all you peps that is looking for iPhone, I will sit in my chair with some popcorn and wait for drama to unfold. Wonder who Jobes going to blame this low initial sales numbers catastrophe, probably AT&T.

      I order mine on AT&T web site at 4am. Only because I was getting ready for work. They already took the money off the card. Today I just got a tx saying this.
      (AT&T Free Message. iPhone 4 stock arrives June 24th, orders will be filled on/after that time. Check https://www.wireless.att.com/order_status/ for updates.)
      does that sound good?

      Forgot to but I done it on
      6-15-10. And that is the date on my order status.

      In my town I have too many choices as to where to camp out on the 24th. The AT&T store is about 10 miles away nd there are 2 Walmart's one about 2 miles away one about 10 miles away and a Best Buy about 10 miles away. Where do I go...? Something tell me to try Walmart (hate that place) because they were not involved with the preorder and might have more phones and the 24th is the last week of the month so welfare checks are not yet out...haha... Where would you go?

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?
      I went to an AT&T store around 10:00 a.m. EST and finally had my iPhone ordered an hour later. I did obtain a receipt, went home, and already had a confirmation email. Here is a portion of it:

      AT&T - iPhone Wireless Order Confirmation

      Dear XXXXXXXXXXX,

      Thank you for your recent order. Your iPhone has been reserved and is expected to ship on or after June 24, 2010. Your order details as well as activation instructions are included below.

      As soon as your device ships, we will send an email confirmation including a tracking number for your convenience. In the meantime, you can check the status of your order on our website at any time by clicking here or by calling our automated system at 1-877-782-8870.

      Here are your order details:

      iPhone Order Details:

      Order Transaction Number: XXXXX

      Shipping Zip Code: XXXXX


      I even called the 1-800 number and checked online for my order status. It still says "in progress," but I'm sure everybody who pre-ordered says that since technically it will not be shipped until AT LEAST 24 June. And the options were:

      In Progress: Our warehouse is still processing this item for shipment.

      Canceled: This item has been canceled and will not be shipped.

      Partially Shipped: Some of the items have shipped. If an item is on backorder, an amount will appear in the Qty Backordered column.

      Shipped: Our warehouse has shipped this item.

      Probably because "everybody" has a job and can't take the several hours needed to camp out in line on a workday?

      Who wouldn't want the convenience of having the product arrive at one's doorstep?

      wtf yourself!

      Wouldn't make any sense for them to do that, unless Apple wants a bunch of returned phones so that people can exchange for the white. No, releasing it right after launch would be bad business sense.

      The return period is 30 days, so it will be sometime after this period. Rumor is mid-August, which fits perfectly.
