AT&T temporarily suspends iPhone 4 pre-orders

After what can only be called a complete clusterfrak of an iPhone 4 pre-order day, where systems went up and down and eager customers spent hours, if not dozens of hours, just trying to get a confirmed order, AT&T has shut down the system -- hopefully to reboot into a kinder, better Matrix.

Apple still seems to be taking pre-orders, though the initial batch has sold out and the next one is only guaranteed for delivery on July 2.

And yes, we're still exhausted too.
