    Default iPhone Shortage in Canada, Internationally. Not US.
    Apple doesn't have enough iPhones being produced to meet customer demand. Rogers (Canada) is advising potential iPhone 3G and 3GS customers that they are out of stock and that the device will be back in stock and available for sale in coming weeks. Fido (subsidiary of Rogers) is also saying the same thing.

    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.
    Canada isn't the only country with an iphone shortage. Reports from many other courtries are coming in that they are running low our out of iPhones. Australia said earlier in the month that their supply is completely exhausted.

    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.
    Apple dropped the ball here. People want to buy the iPhone and can't. It appears that the iPhone 3GS is selling in much higher numbers even during this economic downturn than Apple could have predicted. Apple has declined to comment about the shortage.

    Here in South Africa each shop only received about 10 iPhone 3GS's for sale.

    It was first come, first served!

    And now? There is a major shortage, and they are expecting new stock "some time in the next month"...

    Well finally! We're always the last to get the good phones! At least SOMEbody is helping us out.

    When asked what he would say to the columbine killers, Marilyn Manson said, "I would say nothing to them. I would listen to what they have to say, because that's what nobody else did" from the movie Farenheit 9/11

    You're damn right!! You U.K. people shouldn't complain. Hell you all get every other bad@ss phone first and a lot of times we don't even get some of the high-end phones you all get. We have to import them and have to deal with no 3G.

    So for once the U.S. gets first dibs on a smart phone. So what, complain if you must.

    90% of the world
    AND
    75% of this country, would disagree

    anyway,

    so what if we get alot of iphones.
    THEY ARE ALL LOCKED

    you europeans and your one money/laws system, you can just say, "i dont like your service" and BOOYA!
    unlocked, permanently!

    you guys are lucky in a way
    just like us.

    but the rest of the world now knows how we felt when the first gens came out.

    it was like, "Here ya go, the best phone ever! First come first served! Oh, wait. We are out of phones!"

    this phone ALWAYS makes people act like spoiled little kids.

    LONG LIVE APPLE!

    lmao

    If the US isn't the greatest country, why do we have a problem with so many people trying to come here? If 75% of the United States wouldn't agree we're the best country in the world, then why don't they move elsewhere? I can understand why 90% of the world would disagree because they're jealous of our success. Especially Great Britain 'cause we beat those bastards 235 years ago. So if the US isn't the greatest country in the world, then could you please name one that's better? Those statistics you've used are just completely and utterly wrong, my fellow Apple fan. If it wasn't for the US, the world wouldn't even have an innovative company like Apple 'cause we're the only ones that believe in free enterprise, it is in this type of economy that innovation becomes a strategy for competition.
