Rogers Spokeswoman Liz Hamilton commented on the shortage saying
We are out of stock and still taking orders as our inventory continues to come in week to week . . While we have continuous incoming inventory, we are filling back orders on a priority basis and we appreciate the enthusiasm and patience of our customers.
US carrier AT&T hasn't shown any effects of the shortage that international carriers is feeling. Why? Because Apple has made damn sure that the US has priority when it comes to iPhone supply. According to senior analyst for mobility at IDC Canada Kevin Restivo
If you're in short supply and the smart-phone companies are [fighting] it out in a war, you want to protect your beachhead. You want to be able to fight the battle in the most important areas of the world, and quite frankly that's the United States. You've got to reserve your supply for the biggest battle grounds . . Rogers can't be thrilled about the supply situation.
