    Default [ 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 ( 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?

    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....

    Default im pissed
    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

    I completed my order through the ATT site no problem...but the apple site was failing all over the place

    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...
