    Thats because the HTC EVO is NOT a big deal. They're inferior to an iPhone. Which is the underlying reason to all this mayhem. You guys want an iPhone so bad that as soon as sumthin hinders your greedy lttle hands from getting one, you all go ape sh*t. And THEN get pissed at the company that is MAKING the phone that you want. Make up your minds and grow up. quit whining and leave at&t if its that bad, we dont wanna hear it.

    SO MANY OF YOU PEOPLE ARE EFING STUPID! STOP CRYING ABOUT AT&T NOT SELLING ON THE 24TH AND GET IN A LINE AT APPLE, OR WALLMART, OR ANY OTHER RETAILER THAT WILL BE SELLING THEM ON THE 24TH AND STFU ALREADY. God some of you are so damn dumb. So what if at&t put a 4 day hold on selling the iPhone. I haven't heard Apple or anyone else join suit, so stop the ******** over something so insignificant and adapt and over-come. Morons.

    Apple's site was down for 90 minutes when I was trying to order from 5-630am EST. So I ordered from AT&T. I'd much rather get my phone on the 24th (which is what is happening) than wait for "the source" to come back up and maybe get it. I don't care where I get it, as long as I get it. But that's just me :shrugs:

    Reading comprehension is apparently REALLY difficult to most of the people replying to this thread.

    Wow. I really wasn't going to say anything but. Here's my take. I'm not to sure apple could of made anymore iPhone 4s even if they could in time for the 24th. They could of sat on the release untill late August or September so they would have enough time to produce enough for the whole world at once. but they would of pissed off us the user and then we would of bashed them for sitting on the phone we all wanted so badly! Really we are all on the same boat. I'm sure apple and AT&T don't wake up each day planning to screw us over. There's never been a demand for a product like this. Just look at how large MMI is. Look at all of us! Some people need to cool down. This release is a logistical nightmare for apple AT&T and other resellers not to mention server overload issues. No planning would of made this run smother! Only time. Time we as a consumer would not give without something negative to say. We all need to grow up!

    That's because there isn't a huge gray market for the EVO. ATT has a TON to lose if they don;t give you a credit check, you sign for a phone, sell it, and just cease to pay your monthly bill. People WILL do that.

    I swear... some people just don't care to educate themselves about a topic before they rant like idiots.

    There is such a demand for new video game consoles every launch. Hell, the production of the Wii couldn't really keep up with the demand nearly two years after the release! Now, if you are referring to only Apple products, I can agree with you there

    Bottom Lone, Apple should have restricted all initially sales to the USA. Yes, people will flame me for saying that, but the USA makes up the vast majority of all their sales, so it would have been a better business move IMO. Most other countries already have to deal with delays anyway.

    Having pre-ordered in person at my local AT&T store after being unable to pre-order online (with either AT&T or Apple) all morning on the 15th, I for one am glad that AT&T is postponing in-store sales of the iPhone 4 on launch day.

    I was concerned that I would have to compete with the super-long line that would form made up of people who weren't able to (or just chose not to) pre-order, and who knows if I'd ever end up being able to pick up my phone on Thursday. I don't think AT&T would have had a separate line like Apple is.

    I even expressed this concern to the AT&T rep while pre-ordering, and he indicated that they hardly ever have that many phones on launch day anyway, so they'd end up turning away a lot of people if there was a line. Made me feel a little better, but this makes me feel quite a bit more relaxed and confident that I'll be able to get in and out of the store with my phone in a reasonable amount of time.

    Combine that with opening up pre orders to more than the week before release and there'd be a much more manageable launch day. You could even offer first pre orders to 3GS owners and such rather than just opening it up for every single person at once. That would mean rewarding loyalty though... and we'd first have to explain to the two companies what that word means.

    Well just tell the little yellow bus bus-driver to take you somewhere that WILL be selling them. This is just at&t that is postponing the sale til the 29th. Problem solved genius.

    I don't know why anyone bothers informing people on here, because a) no one reads through the thread, and b) they're mostly retarded and can't solve simple problems even with help. *sigh*

    THIS IS AT&T ONLY THAT'S POSTPONING SALES TO NON-PRE-ORDER CUSTOMERS TIL THE 29th, so, if you waterheads would READ this thread you'd already know that you can still go to an Apple store or another retailer and get in line, UNLESS they magically decide to follow at&t's lead and make statements that otherwise would tell you all that you CAN'T go to another store on the 24th. ughhhh

    I called a couple local Wally Worlds and the only semi solid answer I've gotten is "only managers know when we're getting them".

    So since AT&T gave us the big F U, is there any where that everyone that didn't preorder could get ahold of one?
