Updated: Pre-Order your iPhone 4 now in the online Apple Store!

Those of us actually awake here at TiPb - namely me - wanted to give you a heads up and let you know that you can now pre-order your black only iPhone 4 in the online Apple store. Head on over to the Apple online store and get your order in to guarantee your device arrives on June 24th!

And what happened to the white iPhone 4 is a pretty good question that hopefully Apple will answer sooner rather than later...

Update: If you've unsuccessfully been trying to order your iPhone 4 via the Apple site, hit up this AT&T link as many of you are having much better luck there.

LonerATO says:

I wonder why the White isn't even available on Apple's site

Ethan says:

NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! I WANTED WHITE! ordering black now....dangit.

E says:

Ugh, I stayed up for THIS! No white! Looks Like I'll be waiting in line!

LonerATO says:

I just read somewhere that white isn't even going to be available till sometime summer

DaJe says:

I stayed up all night and no white iPhone im going to bed apple better have a great explanation.

Ethan says:

and it's not working! it's kicked me off or out 3 times now. 1800myapple isn't working! dangit!

csullivan1980 says:

i keep getting "your session expired." ugh!

csullivan1980 says:

@Ethan: oh good, I'm not alone

rckstar86 says:

mine has been processing information for 10mn.

behrlover says:

I figured the website would get overloaded and it time out on tons of people. Reading comments all over the place about no white phones...

Charles says:

Yes, I too get:

Please wait while we access your AT&T account information. <

And then the ball just spins and spins and spins...

Charles says:

If this is how it is at 1am/4am, imagine what it will be like during “business hours”!

rckstar86 says:

can i sue apple if i get to dizzy and fall from the spinning ball? hhmmm........

christyxcore says:

The spinner just keeps on spinning for me too. Been like, 15 minutes now.

LonerATO says:

The only article about not having the white iPhone mentioned that it was only AT&T that would not have it for pre-order, but now it looks like Apple wont be selling it either. I can only assume that Apple did not manufacture enough of them and they will be selling them at the stores on the 24th as first come first serve.

Shelby says:

This whole "no white" thing is not cool. Ordering a black one though

Ethan says:

It gave me the option to pick it up in the apple store day of launch, but that's 50 miles away...I will do it if it brings it up again, but I'm stuck on the spinning logo.
Something tells me this entire ordeal will be a huge royal F*#& up.

brian1269 says:

Would you people get off of here so I can put my order through.

jb says:

loading is taking foreverrrrrrr
ACCESS MY INFO ALL READY!!
i better get one..

csullivan1980 says:

finally my information is being processed...waiting...waiting.waiting

veedubu says:

same messages as everyone else, one time I got to where it told me the price, then timed out....had to start over now spinning again....

devonair says:

I was kicked out for "session expired" about 8 times in a row... and now I'm spinning at the "processing..." screen. =(

rckstar86 says:

maybe it just spins until its ur turn in line. kind of like listening to music on the phone, just a whole lot more annoying.

keith06t says:

This is ridiculous....i'm going back to bed

Brendan says:

Is anyone else getting the "Please wait while we access your AT&T account information" screen on Apple's website while trying to pre-order the iPhone 4?????
After loading this page it tells me I have timed out and to try again!!!!!!

csullivan1980 says:

did anyone get the e-mail that they were ready to order?

brian1269 says:

Has anyone actually be able to order one? I mean come on Apple, you didn't know that your site would get hit at 4 a.m.?

tevis says:

I finally made off of the checking my info page.

tevis says:

Will Apple bill my card now or when they ship the phone?

John says:

i got a 32gb one coming to my house on launch day... with a bumper.
we'll see how nice it looks
i cant wait!!
how the hell am i supposed to go to sleep now?!?!?!

Chris M says:

i jsut got a session expired by clicking continue on the session expired screen...

csullivan1980 says:

@Ker~Man: i hope not that would not be good

AT&T Rep says:

Anyone can have the name AT&T Rep, just people trying to get you to not access the site so their order goes faster...

Jeremy says:

Those messages spreading false info. have been deleted.

websyndicate says:

@At&t Rep HAHA and Im Steve Jobs order keeps trying I say
No go I wanted white dang it. :( Apple you have some explaining to do.

bp123 says:

Yeah right AT&T rep... just another user trying to spread rumors so that all of us will stop trying and they can get one. :)

christyxcore says:

AT&T Rep,
Why couldn't AT&T be prepared? Did you really think no one would try hitting the Apple site to order one as soon as it was up? Kind of ridiculous, you guys are never prepared for anything.

Chris M says:

im ont att.com and it says preorder and they take me to a place where there are 3GS's only -.-

Don't be fooled says:

Don't let these guys bs you they just want you to give up so they can get their phones

GABRIEL says:

processing forever!! WTF?!

Shogan says:

HAS ANYONE been successful in ordering one yet??? or are we all just getting the "wait while processing"/ timeout ??

Peter says:

While I'm waiting for the server to start working better, does anyone know the billing policy? I can't remember what happened last year. Do you pay right away for the pre-order, or does they charge you when it ships?

LonerATO says:

I'm sure that its not even AT&T's site as much as its Apple being hammered right now. The more iPhones they sell the more likely things like this will happen.

csullivan1980 says:

has anyone tried transferring a verizon account phone number? i've been on the processing window for almost 20 mins now

John says:

my order took about 20 minutes to process and a number of "Oops" pages but i finally got it to go through. I had more luck when i added the bumper to my cart and then checked out. Just got my "Order Acknowledgment" confirmation email.

white says:

questions ....
1? when will the white one be available?
2? when will i have to pay and how much to pre order?

veedubu says:

just FINISHED ordering mine from at&t...worked flawless

Mirna says:

On the same boat as you guys. Been on the "processing information" page for a while. Ugh!

Peter says:

It's funny. At 4:00 AM exactly, I got almost to the checkout screen before it timed out. Now I can't get past the "checking AT&T" page.

John says:

"Ships: Delivers on June 24th"
IT FREAKIN BETTER!!!!!

jb says:

this is bad. 43 minutes now and i have yet to get one.
I keep getting all the way to the add to cart page and then it times out. HOW CAN YOU TIME OUT AFTER ONLY 5 SECONDS!!!
laaaaaame

tripodd says:

Been on procesing information for 15 minutes now. I have to pages going with processing information, dont know if I'm just wasting my time.

bp123 says:

I got past the "processing" screen once, but it said it couldn't access my account information and pushed me to in store pickup. With that being said, on the "review" screen it said the location and $699 (full price), so I was hesitant to confirm it.

Matt says:

Had to go through the steps multiple times because of server timeouts, now stuck on the processing your request screen like everyone else... has anyone actually bought one yet?

Jay says:

Ditto. Processing for over 20 minutes now. =\

brian1269 says:

Did the exact same thing, Peter. Haven't been able to get one yet. Damn you, Apple!

steve says:

same here -- stuck in "processing info" for about ten minutes so far.

Peter says:

I'm not so much in a rush as much as I just want to get it done so I can go to bed. Otherwise, I'll get one on June 24, no matter how it happens.

Areason says:

Ugh this is ridiculous I have to be up at 6am yet I don't wanna stop trying. I keep getting kicked out/ eternal spinnyness as well. I just want to order a phone and go to bed is that too much to ask for?

david says:

WTF Apple
why do you make this so hard?

Shogan says:

finally now gets thru the "accessing at&t info".. started timing out after that.. and now is only giving me option to reserve at store...
arrrghhh..

jb says:

they thought they could get away with a 1am start time. NOPE! they should have done 2:45am

Rich says:

I got to the you're qualified screen finally....and now another spinny wheel

Shogan says:

yeah, I keep getting to the "you've qualified".. then time out again.....

csullivan1980 says:

i tried calling apple and a while ago it said business opens at 5am

Matt says:

Don't type in the wrong card info lol

Shogan says:

anyone have any luck calling them?

Andy says:

AT&T pre order worked great. Apple kept saying "could not complete setup online" and to make a reservation for pickup in a store. FAIL.
Just order from AT&T and be done.

rckstar86 says:

spinning,spinning,spinning,spinning,wait... no, more spinning.

James says:

Ditto - tried several times only to get a "Processing information." screen or time outs or reserve at a local store at full ($599) retail. I knew it would be too good to be true (to order seamlessly online that is).

tevis says:

If you order from AT&T will it be delivered on the 24th?

Redshirt says:

Yeah, mighty tough getting through. Got to the order part once, entered the credit card, etc. But then the cart died. :( Finally just set it to reserve a spot at the local Apple store. The shipping only goes to the billing address anyways (so I can't have it delivered to my work address... :( ).

bp123 says:

@Andy I tried the AT&T PreOrder... I am a Premier account holder and when you click on PreOrder it doesn't list the iPhone 4 in the "store". This Premier account has screwed many people before on upgrades for the 3G too...

brian1269 says:

This is getting frustrating. Why was Apple not ready for this? If I can't get it on the next try, I'm getting an Evo!

Redshirt says:

lol, EVO's are sold out dude. Poor threat to make there...

brian1269 says:

Yeah well, I didn't really mean it anyway. lol

csullivan1980 says:

after 1 hour, i decided to try ordering in a separate safari tab without trying to transfer my verizon information...now in ADD TO CART! ...ONLY TO GET BUMPED AGAIN! ! ARGH!

dan_es_4 says:

I want my white iPhone 4!!!....

Andy says:

@bp123
That is bizarre. I am premier too which is why i think it wasnt working on Apple's site. the iphone 4 was listed at the very bottom of the page. They charged me an $18 upgrade fee which i think is supposed to be waived but i will fight that battle another day.
I did get a confirmation with my activation codes and order confirmation, etc.

dgamer1 says:

I got mine, email and all from the Apple website!

Peter says:

Not trying to be a jerk here, but there have been problems like this since the first iPhone back in '07. Should Apple have figured out some of these problems by now? Of course.
But should we be surprised by any of this? Nope.
Still gonna pre-order the sh*t out of the iPhone 4, though.

alex.shimp says:

UG I am stuck at processing your request.....GRRRR

Charles says:

AT&T did not work for me. They offer a “click to pre-order” link which takes you to NO iPhone 4’s! I’m also (apparently) a “Premiere” customer...

DesignJockey says:

Stuck in the processing info on Apple but AT&T it's easier to order, but I don't trust them to ship on the 24th, below is what I found, i'll keep trying Apple but might do AT&T as a last resort
Pre-orders for iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS 8G will be processed to arrive as early as June 24, 2010, if submitted by 2 p.m. ET, June 22, 2010. The actual shipment date and receipt of your order is not guaranteed and may be subject to delays for reasons that include, but are not limited to, product availability, inventory, credit issues, number porting or carrier delays, and completion of other required AT&T business processes.

Shogan says:

i've been trying over an hour! this is ridiculous.. my very first try is the closest I came to ordering one.. and now I can't even get it to verify my at&t info without timing out!

Shogan says:

Any particular browsers doing better than the other? I've tried everything.. safari.. chrome.. IE.. firefox.. and even my iphone3g, haha. nothing!

christopherwwoo#IM says:

processing information... like everyone else :(

juanky says:

Hmmm. Frustrating indeed but I expected it to be this way.

Ryan says:

maybe the at&t rep was right?!

Tom says:

EVERYONE. My old contact (which ended last month) had me at 99.99 for unlimited voice which they are trying to stick me with AGAIN, I can see no option to change my voice plan even though I am out of contract. The new price for unlimited voice is 69.99 isn't. BE CAREFUL NO ONE AGREES TO THIS 99.99 CRAP THAT THEY ARE TRYING TO SLIP PAST YOU.

Yohawn says:

I've gotten to the "add to cart" page 3 times now and it times out. Hahahahahha.

zero credibility says:

well no email, but money has gone from my account and the order shows as being processed in my account... always disconcerting when your browser craps out at the last stage of a purchase ... :S

Andy says:

Also, there was no Enterprise unlimited plan either. So another reason why I probably couldn't complete my order.

Nathan Kline says:

I have been trying for an hour now. Now Apple's site gives me
"java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException"
with a list of errors when I select a phone

jb says:

tried going to att. got through it smoothly all the way up to shipping, which is where i lost my nerve. i dont trust them to have it to me on the 24th..

csullivan1980 says:

been at this for 90 minutes and STILL havent gotten to order one yet :(

Mark says:

I watched the spinning wheel for 45 min on Apple's website. Then I went to AT&T's site, and bought the iphone 4 in about 4 minutes. Forget apple, go to AT&T now.

Shogan says:

I'd purchase from AT&T if there was any guarantee it'd be delivered on the release date..

CharliePrime says:

I'm right there with you Csullivan1980. I just reached the 60 min mark and it's still processing information. =\

junovela says:

As usual, a mess. Apple doesn't have the white for pre-order and my "premier" account with AT&T won't let me pre-order on their site.
So, I guess I'll be in line on the 24th.

dubbdee says:

Glad to see I'm not the only one having problems. Obviously an AT&T network issue (no surprise). Been kicked off multiple times when it's trying to access account information and now it's spinningon processing information. AT&T is going to lose it if people start tethering a lot.

bp123 says:

And just think... this is just preorder... imagine the activation woes we will all be having :)

Rusi says:

i have a premier account and i was able to pre order a 32gb iphone 4

bp123 says:

FYI - With my Premier account, I have gotten to the page that says I am qualified on the Apple site. So it looks like we can order from there. Now, if I only can get my session not to expire hahaha.

CoachWill says:

Have been attempting to pre order from apple's site since 4am/EST and continue to get website connection errors. its almost 5:30am and the issue is still present.

rckstar86 says:

i pre ordered 3gs last year from at&t and it came on release date.

WcHorse says:

It said I reserved mine at the Apple store so does that mean its preordered? It didnt ask me for any payment.

Mikey says:

I ordered mine on AT&T and it went right through after 1/2 hour on apple with no success.

MK says:

I got through and reserved it at an Apple store. Now I am just waiting for the confirmation e-mail.

Steve Jobs says:

Haha suckers!!! Drink my kool-aid.
Steve Jobs

  • Sent from my iPhone 4
sandi says:

I never could get it to go through on the apple store but on the AT&T site it went right through! Who'd of thought....

DesignJockey says:

AT&T won't let you pre-order if your billing address and shipping address do not match.. wtf.. I want it delivered to my work!!

Philip says:

YES!!! finally got the in-store reservation. Took ****** long enough!!

WcHorse says:

So reserved=preordered correct? Im slightly confused. I thought that it would have me enter credit card info?

Jay says:

ATT didn't work for me. I'm trying to switch from Verizon. Said something about couldn't process my request to go into a store.

brian1269 says:

Wow, Apple won't let me buy it. And AT&T won't let me log in. I guess they don't want my business today. I outta here.

Mark says:

If you wait for Apple to process the order, you might still be watching the spinning wheel on the 24th.

DesignJockey says:

aargh... looks like it works now, but session keeps expiring.

Tom says:

att is down now for me

GABRIEL says:

The Apple site sent me to a reserve to pick up at store page. I did, the it told me I would be picking up my $599 blk 16gb iPhone 4! WTF?!??!?! I qualify for the 199. F**K them, they can feal with it when I get there. But thier getting a call from me when I wake up laters!

Peter says:

From what I understand, it's this:
"Reserved" means you have reserved it to pick up at an Apple Retail Store on release day.
"Pre-ordered" means you have ordered it, entered payment information and it will be delivered to you on release day.
That makes sense, yeah?

csullivan1980 says:

okay, got the processing information page, again. it was speedy, now let's see....

bp123 says:

Not sure if Reserve=Preorder. I have been on that screen a few times now and it is generally due to the fact it can't access your account information. You will notice it will show the full price of the iPhone too on the reserve.

WcHorse says:

@Peter:
So essentially you cannot pre-order an in store pick up? You can only reserve? I have no issue with paying for it on that day vs now but I want to be sure that it will be there for me.

bp123 says:

man... now an Ooops error on store.apple.com?!?!

StayThirstyMyFriends says:

AT&T Premier site worked in less than a minute in case any of you has FAN account and are waiting on apple.com....in for one!

jb says:

alright, i took the reserve at a store for full price. hopefully when i get there i can get the upgrade price since im eligible.
ill stop in at apple and pick it up on the way to work. all i gotta say is it better have my name on it and be there waiting for ME!

WcHorse says:

@bp123:
It gave me the full price reserve option a few times but finally it gave me a reserve option for the $199.00 16GB.

StayThirstyMyFriends says:

I was able to have it shipped to my job jockey. Maybe case of the premier ordering.

DesignJockey says:

Spinning again after I select my voice, data and text plans...

DesignJockey says:

@StayThirsty thanks for the info, yeah probably because of premier account, I'll just stick with Apple.

EHB says:

I did it with ATT, it took me 2 try, but I got it.

jb says:

btw for ppl thinking about reserving at a store. confirmation message says
"Thanks for reserving your iPhone for pickup at the Apple Retail Store on June 24 starting at 7:00 a.m. You’ll receive an email confirmation shortly and we’ll have your iPhone ready and waiting for you when you come in to the store to pick up and pay."

missadri26 says:

I finally got through to reserve the phone and it says There are no reservations available for apple store pick up. So the only option is shipping. But I don't want it shipped!! I'm pissed!!

James says:

AT&T Premier customers having difficulty upgrading online need to call 611 or 866-499-8008 after 8AM EST to have their pre-order upgrade processed. AT&T customer support said some Premier accounts are having issues upgrading online - so call if you are one of them.

alex.shimp says:

Sweet just got my in store reservation completed for the 32gb iPhone4 at the upgrade price of 299 now I can go to bed after I get the confirmation email that is :-)

JVGOTTI says:

OMG now it just says opps goes no where after clicking preorder from apple store! Jesus Mary & Joseph

Bre Bre says:

WTF do they mean OOPS!!! come on APPLE!!!

CoachWill says:

ATT Site have processed my order, Apple site says Oops!

Dan says:

Everyone,
Please do me a favor and please turn off your wireless station.

Charles says:

I get all the way to the “add to cart” page and then:
OOPS! an error has occurred

DesignJockey says:

WTF ... got all the way to add to cart then OOPS

Tim says:

@Chris (1st post) - Just order it thru AT&T....Premier DOESNT WORK on Apples site for the pre-order....and AT&T STATED that already. Don't blame AT&T for your stupidity.

Peter says:

It's amazing how they get away with it, sometimes.
It's like when Jobs was having problems with the WiFi in the Keynote last week. How were they not prepared for that many people being connected? How did they not have a dedicated connection for the iPhone demo?
Same thing here, how do they not know how many people will be doing this now?

Tim says:

If you are ordering right now 5:30 AM EST.....do it thru AT&T and not Apple....they are having server issues.

Peter says:

Damn. Almost got to checkout before another "oops!" it seemed to be moving faster ... guess not.

MK says:

I got the confirmation e-mail but it says the price is $699. I know I am eligible for the upgrade price of $299 (32gb). Will that change when I go pick it up in the store and Apple can verify the upgrade price?

behrlover says:

After a hour and 40 minutes, my two are finished! Thank God I want a black phone and think white phones are as bad as white shoes and white cars. YAY for Black Phones!

dubbdee says:

I gave up on Apple and went through AT&T, ugh. I hope that I'm not disappointed next week.

Patrick says:

I keep getting Oops, an error occurred!!!!!
GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Peter says:

Thanks, Tim. I think I'll stick with Apple. Even with server issues, I trust them more. Worked for me last year, it'll work for me now.
Also, everyone continuing to tell us to use AT&T, we're all in the same position, aren't we? We're all both trying to pre-order the iPhone and checking these comments at the same time, right? We obviously know our options at this point, and have made our choice to either stick with Apple ordering or try AT&T.

Oskyriver says:

Apple store having problems but went to Att website n got mine

Peter says:

Hey, for those who pre-ordered through Apple already. You pay for it now, right? Or does it charge when they ship?

Yohawn says:

Any other ATT premier customers get charged the $18 upgrade fee when it previously said you were eligible to have that fee waived?

nolefan says:

ATT only gives me the upgrade option of 3GS. 4 not even there when I log in to upgrade. Apple still stuck on OOPS

brian1269 says:

Why do you keep saying to order through AT&T? It says upgrade now, but then it is nowhere to found. Just 3Gs and 3Gs.

ceh says:

att won't even show me the iphone4 for upgrade, with no note or anything to say why or when (after following preorder link). apple hasn't gotten further than selecting phone and now seems to completely be down. been trying for about 2 hours now. swell.

Bre Bre says:

omg im so bouta give upp ATT is not working and so isnt APPLE =(

JVGOTTI says:

Omg just order it at www.att.com it went through first try for me after 3 hours on apples sh*t site. Confirmed email and all goodnight

Charles says:

FINALLY. I pre-ordered on Apple w/confirmation. It took lots of refreshes (hitting the refresh arrow in Safari). For delivery on the 24th at the upgrade $299 price.
That only took 2 hours... Time for bed.

mmh says:

Uk store has unlocked iPhone, thatz where i am headed

csullivan1980 says:

Noooooooooooooooooo! I just got the sticky note back saying "We'll Be Back Soon!"

Bre Bre says:

omfg!!! i got alway to the damn check out chart on apple just now all to say theyre down again!!!

Andy says:

Apple's web site is an epic fail.
AT&T FTW
Never thought I'd utter those words.

DesignJockey says:

Damn... i got through to the Add to cart page again, didn't work and now they put up a "We'll be back soon" page!!

Allen Simmins says:

What a nightmare!!! At 1:00am I spent 1 1/2 hours getting non responsive loops, timeout errors (that happen after only a few minutes) and Apple OOPS! Errors. After trying again and again and again 50 times (really) I was finally able to get my orders to take. This is BIG BIG BIG. If you want this gem, I suggest you order as quickly as possible. I suspect once the east coast wakes up it's going to get much much worse.
Just don't give up. If it takes more than 2 minutes, start over. It works if you start over rather than just waiting for a response.

Andy says:

LMFAO. Now it says "we'll be back soon"
Guess they weren't quite ready.

Rich says:

The store is down AGAIN!

Timber says:

@Peter - Sounds like you are a hardcore fanboy. You should not pre-order and just get in line at the Apple store to get the "experience" or whatever.
Everyone else, why are some of you fanboy's so crazy that you wouldn't order the same product from AT&T (or anywhere else)....Don't be like Peter....break out of your everything Apple store cycle, because in the end, its the same result! :-) I got nothing but <3 for you Peter

csullivan1980 says:

TWO HOURS! FOR THIS?! I am very disappointed.

Mark says:

The Store "Will be right back" is on display at 6:00AM ET. Bummer!

Allen Simmins says:

I don't recommend ordering via ATT. When you need service later, Apple gives you the kiss off. You get all around better treatment if you order your phone via Apple rather than via ATT. At least that's been my experience.

Peter says:

This is crazy. I'm on the East Coast and have been at this since 4:00 AM.
Probably not the smartest thing to do with a 9:00 AM root canal scheduled.

Bor15 says:

Cant believe no White!! Really pissed off. Apple help line don't know why as well. I think they should have an explanation why. Steve told us we can pre-order today!!

Johnnyreb09 says:

Anyone got the "We'll be back soon" sticky for the apple store?

Matt says:

The store is down now

GP says:

Yep - got the same We’ll be back soon” sticky for the apple store?

bp123 says:

@Timber Some of our "Premier" AT&T sites don't display the iPhone 4 as an option, so right now I am forced to order from Apple regardless of fanboy-ism. :)

Charles says:

Wow, looks like I snuck my order in before the server blew up...

Bor15 says:

“We’ll be back soon”
In the UK!

Peter says:

I don't know who @Timber is, but apparently he's a fan of mine.
Dude, I'm not a fanboy. I just happen to be up, so what the hell else am I going to do with my time if I can't sleep? You'd never see me anywhere near a line. Couldn't pay me.
Only reason I'm sticking with Apple is because it worked last year and I got my phone in time. I, like many others, have had bad experiences dealing with iPhone issues through AT&T. It's called using prior experience to inform my current decision.

Mike C says:

Just got upgraded @ ATT after 2 hours of trying Apple.com. ATT took maybe 5 minutes to upgrade to two iPhone 4's! Yes!!

Patrick says:

For people who pre ordered through AT&T, do they say it will be delivered to your door on the 24th???

dp says:

att does not show iphone 4 for me :(
anyone have a link?

AT&T Rep says:

We are working on a database issue between our servers and Apple's. Due to unforeseen issues, if you attempted to place your order prior to 5:30am ET then you will be unable to place another order until June 16 (provided supplies last).
All AT&T orders placed today will be fulfilled and shipped for June 24

Eyemuumforfun says:

Peter....here in Philly in the wry same boat!!! Since 4 A.M. And no luck!!! This Blows!!

PHOENIX says:

I tried Apple website multiple times. Saw one of you guys mentioned att site. ATT worked like a charm and it was great becasue i haev 2 lines so i needed 2 phones one for me and one for the wifey. It was very easy. Hope it shows up as published.

Mike says:

DUDE WTF?!? I've been up for so long and now this b.s. from apple is really pissing me off! Hey, does anyone know what information I will be required to give to the apple website for the RESERVE.
PS: Peter you sound like a little apple loving prick.

There's that pesky AT&T Rep liar again... :)

rome1453 says:

I just ordered my through AT&T. Took 10 minutes.

Andy says:

@patrick
The confirmation says will be fulfilled on June 24 and shipped on a first come first serve basis.
My guess is there is a good chance it does not arrive until the 25th. So depends on how hard core you are I guess. For me, being premiere AT&T, I have no choice since I won't wait in a line on launch day (have to work).
My local AT&T rep said he could have my unit at the store late on June 24 if I chose. But I'm fine getting it that Friday.

Peter says:

Now I remember why I stopped commenting on websites back in the 90's. Apparently I'm a prick now for responding to someone's comments of me.
I'm too old for this stuff. Good luck with your ordering, folks. Hope everyone has an iPhone4-filled June 24th.

Andy says:

From my AT&T email:
Thank you for your purchase from the AT&T Premier Online Store. We're pleased with your choice of AT&T as your wireless service provider.
Pre-orders will be fulfilled beginning June 24, 2010. Orders will ship on a first-come, first-served basis. We will notify you by email when your order ships. Your order may be subject to AT&T eligibility and credit requirements. If we have any questions about your eligibility or your order, we will contact you via email.
then they gave a bunch of links and activation codes.

AT&T Rep says:

Please ignore anything I'm writing. There is afalse predator on the loose.

CharliePrime says:

I managed to get mine reserved right before 3am PST. I had both my mac and PC trying to reserve. The mac went thru while the PC was on the damn Spinning wheel for over an hour and nothing.

Charles says:

“on June 15, 2010 at 6:11 am, Patrick asks:
For people who pre ordered through AT&T, do they say it will be delivered to your door on the 24th???“
A person posted earlier this caveat from AT&T:
Pre-orders for iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS 8G will be processed to arrive as early as June 24, 2010, if submitted by 2 p.m. ET, June 22, 2010. The actual shipment date and receipt of your order is not guaranteed and may be subject to delays for reasons that include, but are not limited to, product availability, inventory, credit issues, number porting or carrier delays, and completion of other required AT&T business processes.

Ian says:

I'm an AT&T Premier customer, and I can't even see the iPhone 4 on the upgrade page on AT&T's website. Yet, if I want to sign up as a new customer, it's the easiest process in the world. Anyone find it funny that AT&T can't handle the customers who use them the most?
Apple has been a massive disappointment the whole night. Somehow I was able to reserve one at the store for the 24th, but I want it shipped to me. (7am sucks.)

TH says:

Just did Pre-Order from Apple.com pissed that the white version isnt available. Oh well, got a black one. Going to Apple store later to confirm my pre-order because last time I did a pre-order on line and went to pick it up they sat there scratching their heads had no clue what I was talking about, dont want to risk not getting one, so as soon as the mall opens I'll be there making sure my pre-order REALLY exists this time!! Ugghh incompetence!! WHERE IS THE WHITE VERSION :-( I really wanted that instead.

Jay says:

After hours of nothing but failure on Apple's site, I waltzed over to AT&T's site and had my preorder completed in 5 minutes. Confirmation email with activation info arrived immediately.

Mike says:

Oh shut up already. No one cares about your geezer ass. And if you decided in the 90's that you weren't going to comment on website, then why are you still doing it? So how about you quit riding Apple's dick and get a life. And I hope you're aren't able to get an iPhone 4 on the 24th. Just so you can't brag to all your friends about being the "first" to have it, because you know that's your sole purpose to get it on day one. Good day, Dr. Faggot.

bp123 says:

Yes people... we know it takes 10min to order from AT&T...
* Some can't order from AT&T because the iPhone 4 doesn't display as an option
* Some want better guarantees getting the phone on 24th and hence order through Apple
We are all proud of those that realized you can order from multiple places. Pretty soon phones will open, stores will open as other options to preordering.

Mike says:

LOL Jay, why did you waltz to the AT&T website? Maybe that's why you're having problems since you're waltzing all over the place :))

Rich says:

Same crap...get OOPS on add to cart

DesignJockey says:

Damn.. still cant add to cart... this is annoying!

Mike says:

FUUUCCCKKKKKKK YES!!!!!!!!! SUCCESSSSSS!!!!!!!
Sucks for you guys. Just did it on the apple website as soon as it went back up. Reserved 16GB black.

csullivan1980 says:

why is the iphone 3gs a Pre-Order too?

ceh says:

at work now, been trying since 1am PDT...changed computers, finally got the option on att.com to upgrade (after many many many tries). good enough for me. luck all.

csullivan1980 says:

now i cant past the Oops screen!

Ian says:

Got all the way to it being in the cart, then it timed out. Unfreakingbeliveable.

CoachWill says:

oooh, there has to be a app for this! this is too much fun :(

csullivan1980 says:

for the almost 3 hours i've been trying to get an iphone 4 i hope i get something out of ths

dab360iM12 says:

Scored my reservation after 3 attempts at 2:30 am PT. A friend just emailed me his iPhone screen snap of the Apple.com reservation page showing the error page "Oops!".

Fanboy #1 says:

Oops! Apple can't handle a pre-order or have stock of both colors of the iPhone! LOL

jason in annapolis says:

VERY SLOW!!! I would love to know how many pre-orders they get today. Apple.com was moving at the speed of erosion...and the first few times it stated "cant access your information at this time". BUT gave me the option to put one in my cart for $699....how nice of them. Anywhoo.....I kept trying and it finally let me thru. Stores open at 7am.

Bre Bre says:

ughh WTF is going on its never been this hard to get an iphone on a pre order day =( im gettin mad why wouldnt they be prepared for this stuff!

CoachWill says:

This changes everything; Yea Right!

TimGSU says:

I got my iPhone 3G at the Apple Store B&M...I got my 3GS at AT&T B&M and now I am getting my iPhone 4 shipped from AT&T....the experience hasn't been different pre or post sale for me getting from either place...good luck to everyone else ordering this morning!

dab360iM12 says:

Great blog story headline: "Oops!"

bp123 says:

Here we go again... We'll be back soon

Rich says:

STORE DOWN AGAIN?? this makes 3 times!!

csullivan1980 says:

this is an odd question but is anyone else experiencing playback issues with youtube videos or anything like that with safari 5. i've had a lot of time on here and just noticed nothing is playing

csullivan1980 says:

ARGH the site is down again!!!!!

Ian says:

Apple has never been this bad at anything before. It's amazing.

sangs says:

No problem using AT&T site. Took 5 minutes - if that. Delivery on June 24.

Ian says:

Has any premier AT&T customer actually been able to choose iPhone 4? I sure as hell can't.

Bre Bre says:

this is HORRIBLE DOWN AGAIN!!! and i still cant get the iphone 4 to show up on ATT

john says:

still dont even have the option to preorder under premier site...

JR says:

Store down after trying several times and still no luck!

bp123 says:

@bsangs You aren't telling anyone anything new here... read the previous comments.
@Ian I have a Premier account and I was able to get past qualifications and to the cart before I got the Oops page and the site went down. AT&T doesn't list the iPhone 4 as an option on the Premier site. Some people have reported that it has worked for them.

Rich says:

Im a premier customer and I havent been able to get past the add to cart screen.

Dan says:

yep premier customer here too , nothing to upgrade to. wonderful

bp123 says:

@Rich before the site went down for the 2nd time (not the current time), I actually saw my cart being a Premier customer. I took a risk and tried to add Apple Care right before the site down... Now I am wishing I would have just checked out. :)

emtp563 says:

I reserved mine on Apple.com It took 1 1/2 hours starting at 4 am EST, but after many reloads, refreshes, time outs, etc I was finally able to complete an order. It's 7am now, looks like apple.com is down.

Chase says:

Just ordered two off att's website. Heck with apple. Why no white? That's what I wanted. Oh well, I like black too!

Sock says:

Apple store still says "We'll be back soon" from my home PC, but was perfectly functional and relatively fast from my iPhone over 3G. Was (finally) able to get one ordered.

sting7k says:

iPhone 4 not showing up for me at AT&T.

john says:

as a premier i cant do a thing on atts site but on apple it goes through shows my pricing perfect and all but when i choose shipping or pickup, oops

paulrkiii says:

I can't see the iPhone 4 either on AT&T's website

JR says:

Now I can't order through AT&T . Premier store will not let me order!

bp123 says:

I wonder if the AT&T Premier site requires the company/org to allow the listing of certain phones? If that is the case, then I wont see the iPhone 4 on their for a month with my company!?!?! :)

dp says:

@sting7k
same problem here

Andy says:

I ordered via AT&T and, as back up, reserved one at Apple store. Being premier Apple would not let me place my order online. I doubt I will be able to get to the store since it is a work day.
