  • AT&T Will Begin Selling iPhone 4 on June 29

    According to the above video, AT&T won't begin selling iPhone 4s at their retail stores until June 29. The spokeshipster "Daniel" says that AT&T's "top priority in our stores is to take care of our customers who ordered an iPhone 4 and requested it be delivered to an AT&T store."

    And presumably, this will take 5 days. Fun.

    Our insider passed a customer service bulletin to us on the inventory issue:

    AT&T is on-track to deliver iPhone 4 to customers who preordered the device on June 15, 2010 in direct channels and will have limited inventory in participating local dealer locations. We look forward to offering iPhone 4 to all other customers beginning Tuesday, June 29, 2010, when it goes on sale in all AT&T sales channels. Review the "iPhone 4 Launch Day Customer Experience" document under related links.

    Dealer Exchange Process: iPhone 4 will begin arriving this week in participating local dealer locations with limited inventory. This is a result of limited availability of devices during this time of extraordinary demand. Dealers should continue to support the dealer exchange Process, notifying customers as soon as devices are available.
    Retail purchase: Participating local dealer locations will have iPhone 4 inventory available on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last on June 29 in retail locations. If out of stock, please let customers know inventory will be shipped to the store regularly and they should check back often. Please continue to ensure you are supporting those existing customers with the dealer exchange process as necessary.
    And a member with a friend who is an AT&T sales rep got this text message, which sums up the view from folks on the inside:

      If you live in the Los Angeles area, I would suggest hitting up the new store in Cerritos (<-LOL,my fire fox spell check showed BURRITOS). Its opening on the 24th meaning they will have a full stock of iphones since there was technically no store there to reserve one.I would go wait in line but mine is being delivered by 3pm tomorrow :-) (<-aren't we a-holes when we just have to mention that?lol)

As far as I know, Walmart is only carrying the 16gb (for now at least). When you take all of that into consideration, the fact that AT&T will not be selling any phones on launch day does impact a lot of people.

      If you are going to try and flame others it usually helps if you keep from making yourself look like an ignorant ***.
      Hey dumbass, before you call someone "ignorant" comprehend the message. Everyone crying about at&t wasn't taking into consideration other places that are still selling the iPhone on the 24th. If you have to drive a little further suck it up and do so if getting the phone on the 24th means that much to you. Idiot. It's morons like yourself that like to ***** but do NOTHING to remedy the situation. *sigh*

      I dont get this part of the article.....

      "The spokeshipster "Daniel" says that AT&T's "top priority in our stores is to take care of our customers who ordered an iPhone 4 and requested it be delivered to an AT&T store."

      When I pre-ordered on the 15th, the store manager told me I did not have a choice, if I pre-order today, it HAS to be sent to my house, it CAN NOT be shipped to the store. Weird.

      @ronfin44 - by reading my post that you quoted its blatantly obvious I am aware of the other stores carrying it on release day. Taking into consideration your disapproval of all the "crying" going on in regards to this I find it humorous that you are getting more worked up than anyone else in the thread.

      All the AT&T and apple bashing is amusing. Considering the site were on and what were talking about.

      Stopped by Radio Shack and was told "the only phones we're getting are for pre-orders..." Also, it seems Apple and AT&T split carriers this time using both FedEx and UPS with very lax conditions for delivery. If you're lucky to have UPS deliver your phone they'll most likely leave it without a signature hidden and out of the weather, like between your screen doors. Good luck to everyone still searching for a location to find one tomorrow. It won't be easy.
