Due the the overwhelming demand for the iPhone 4, AT&T will not be offering any devices to walk-in customers until June 29th. All of the units have already been spoken for during the initial pre-order last week.
Here are a few guidelines for customers buying iPhone 4 from AT&T:
Preordered for home or business delivery: iPhone 4 will begin arriving this week for customers who preordered. We'll send an email when each order has shipped.
Preordered for store delivery: AT&T retail representatives will begin calling customers this week to let them know their iPhone 4 is available for pick up in store.
Retail purchase (no preorder): AT&T plans to have iPhone 4 inventory - available on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last - on June 29 in its retail locations, at AT&T | Cell Phones, U-verse, Digital TV, DSL Internet, and Phone Service, and in business sales channels. As inventory sells out, AT&T will offer the convenient option of purchasing iPhone 4 and having it delivered to a home or business or an AT&T store. As always, customers will receive an email once their order is placed, and again when it ships.
Actually, unit sales can only be accounted for the units that are in stock and ready to be sold but if they are all sold already what unit sales can it hurt? Sure, it will disappoint a lot of people but I highly doubt that they'll run straight to Verizon and get a Droid X or Evo from sprint for that matter. Majority of the people will still buy the new iphone.
Did you guys here about the man that is already in line at a Texas Apple store? He has been there for 5 days . He says its his vacation ... wouldn't that stink if he didn't pre order a pick up and gets turned down .
The article says he pre-ordered. It also says he is disabled with a seizure disorder. He also said he did it the last two years but might take next year off. I wouldn't be doing it. It has been getting up to 100 degrees around, he is up in Dallas so it may a little cooler but not much.
