AT&T Temporarily Suspends New iPhone Pre-Orders

While AT&T and Apple have both sold out of their launch day allotments for iPhone 4 in the United States, customers are undoubtedly still trying to join the queue of pre-orders scheduled for later shipping dates. According to Boy Genius Report, however, those customers looking to pre-order an iPhone 4 or 3GS today may want to avoid AT&T's direct sales channels, as the company has reportedly temporarily suspended all new pre-orders as it attempts to work through the backlog from yesterday's demand.

Pre-orders for iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS 8GB are Temporarily Suspended

Effective close of business on June 15, 2010, the ability to place pre-orders (new activations, upgrades and exchanges) has been temporarily suspended. There is a special team that will be manually working all pre-orders from June 15th that were held in a pending status. Under no circumstances should new pre-orders be attempted in the system.

This suspension impacts Phoenix, Premier, OPUS (COR), and System X (DMDR).

Please stay tuned to future bulletin communications for any updates.

U.S. customers looking to pre-order through Apple are currently facing shipping estimates of July 2nd for both iPhone 4 models available at the moment. The company should also be reserving some stock for walk-in sales at its retail stores on the June 24th launch day, although those should quickly sell out and will likely require a significant wait in line for those looking to purchase on launch day without a reservation.
