Today has been a crazy day for Apple enthusiasts. The reserve system at Apple and AT&T has been plagued with downtime due to the overwhelming response to iPhone reservations. AT&T has officially released this statement in response
“Because of the incredible interest in iPhone 4, today was the busiest online sales day in AT&T history. As of Tuesday afternoon, customers who preorder iPhone 4 moving forward will receive their device on June 25 or later, depending on when the order is placed. We’ll email customers with confirmation once their order is placed, and again when it ships. In addition, we will have devices available on a first-come, first-serve basis in our stores beginning on June 24.”
Now with that said, there may be some lucky people who will get one on June 24th. Be ready to camp out all night if you want one. You still might have a chance at Walmart, Best Buy, or Radio Shack. They usually only get “limited quantities” after the Apple and AT&T stores get their reserves filled.
