[ FAIL ] Pre Order Now!
Update: AT&T Premier customers can log in and order.
iPhone 4 has been available via AT&T online and Apple's online retail store for hours now, but good luck actually getting an order in. Although we've tried for a solid 3 hours to get an order in, we're getting the same results hundreds of users are emailing, tweeting, and pm'ing us - zilch.
Apple's site looks to be staying up, with a couple 10-15 second "oops!" messages, but it seems AT&T is unable to keep up with the traffic. The AT&T site is down with maintenance messages more often than it's been up, and Apple's pre order process hangs right at the part where it starts communicating with AT&T - either when it checks pricing eligibility, or when it actually gets in to add/replace the line.
Smartly on Apple's part (which doesn't matter right now since AT&T can't handle the load), it looks like they've moved all iPhone activation to its own subdomain (buyiphone.apple.com) to better handle load management.
Keep trying I suppose - I'm gonna go have a mocha and an omelette, and do this thing later - no sense sitting in front of a screen pressing refresh for hours when they're obviously TKO'd at the moment.
Hey - anyone notice the iPhone 4 is only available in black for preorder/launch?

Looks like Apples website isn't fairing much better either atm. I'm trying to preorder one, not getting very far.

I was able to get mine pre-ordered with at&T at 7am this morning. The apple store was showing the sticky note.

Must have lucked out. I had the same issues last night, but around 3 pacific time I was able to finish my upgrade at AT&T website. Thought it had leveled out at that point . Sorry guys.

Same here...I can't even get AT&Ts site to come up and Apple's keeps failing. Probably because they have to talk to AT&T to verify my account and AT&T, in it's usual fashion, is FAILING today. What's new with that though....

I was also able to pre order my iPhone at 7 am this morning. I pre ordered mine on the AT&T website, it took me a a few attempts but I was able to get through. Can't wait till Thursday.

lol ... its so ridiculous to see how people are jumping and there is no reaction by neither apple or at&t to take a closer look at this problem. I myself tried since 7 am nada ... yet

Steve Jobs just told me that everyone needs to stop trying to order the new iphone 4 cause his network can't handle it. He said he can wait all day.

I tried to order on the Premier site and there is a link for upgrade. But there isnt a Iphone 4 available to pre-order. Tried calling Premier customer service and I sit on hold for 20 mins. Then out of the blue, it says "due to system malfunctions, please call back later". Then it hangs up..... I give up for now...
