    Plenty of ATT users got their phones ordered today. Hell even the white ones were guaranteed on the 25th. However, the limited edition (metallic silver) was only sold to the first 1,000 who pre-ordered that particular color. Surprisingly that lasted a whole 10mins.

    I hear what you are saying. I just think that every year they have a greater and greater demand. So even when they up production, it still isn't enough to keep up with the demand. Apple also prefers to keep stock low and send the public into a frenzy trying to get their product.

    Well if you compare the massive change from the 3GS - iPhone 4 to the 3G - 3GS, then you'd see why. Add that to the millions of early upgrade eligibility, a drop in the data plan price and you've got yourself massive sales.

    Lol, apple wipes the floor with google every year with theyre release of an updated iphone. Google wishes they had production issues like apple every year because those issues or fails as you note them equate to $$$ (in lay mans' terms, Profits... sweet sweet ungodly unfathomable profits). Although apple, not ATT (att has nothing to do with the production side), has production issues for the new iphone isnt a cause for the Fail stamp because any company in the world would kill for this type of dilemma. Basically, these "Fails" should ALWAYS be expected for events such as these.

    Around 8:00 tonight I decided to give my preorder another shot, and it actually went through on the Apple site and I just got an email confirmation with a June 24th delivery date. Thank goodness..

    guess it depends on your definition of "right". i think selling out of a ton of iphones in less than a day says they did something right. i know i'm happy...put my order in early and have one on the way for the 24th. totally excited.

    Got my order in around 4-5ish this morning, was up with the baby.
    I just so happened to go to Att website and saw the new little text "pre order"
    yay!

    I didn't really think it was up yet, but it was!
    And after I ordered it, Att sent me a email saying that preorder could be placed now.

    So I guess I beat the mass email to people/big rush to the ATT site

    I would lean more towards Google is thinking about how the hell they can pull this off. Demand for the iPhone goes up each year. So it is hard to prepare when the bar keeps getting put higher.


    At least this provides better showing of demand than Sprint did with Evo sales stats. Then got caught with their real totals.
