What Time iPhone 4 Pre Order? Some Say 4am (iPhone 4 Update)

What Time iPhone 4 Pre Order? Some Say 4am (iPhone 4 Update)

The AT&T Facebook Fan Page is a pretty good source for discussion, questions, and answers about new iPhone launches. Since AT&T is the exclusive carrier for the iPhone, it really makes sense that they would have the inside scoop on everything regarding the iPhone 4.

A question that everyone is now asking about the iPhone 4 pre order is this:

What time can we pre order the iPhone 4 from the AT&T website?

So I took this question to the AT&T Facebook Fan Page and posted it. I’ve gotten a couple of responses – one guy said “learn to google”. Which is funny because I took that response as equivalent to “I really have no idea so I’ll just say something ridiculous instead”.

4am on AT&T website to pre order iPhone 4

One person said they just spoke to an AT&T store manager who said that the iPhone 4 will be available for pre order on the AT&T website at 4am.

So of course I immediately replied back with – well is that 4am EST or 4am PST.

Here’s exactly what the guy posted:

I just got off the phone with my buddy who is an at&t store manager. The iphone pre ordering will not start till 4am online and 7am in corp stores.

  • I'm going to wait and see if the iPhone page changes at 12AM Eastern.

    • brandondsf

      it doesnt

      • You're right…the new rumors are 4AM EST, 1AM PST.

        • kara

          the iphone store now changed

          • serg

            i cant see the change im in the washington DC area…..any info on that?

          • Jordan

            YA BUT IT DOESNT LET YOU ORDER. IT WILL BE AVAILABLE 4AM EST. GURANTEED BY AN INSIDE APPLE SOURCE OF MINE.

            • Texas

              So EST translated to my time in Texas is 3 a.m. right?

              • Roger

                Nothing on AT&T site either……..

    • mel1987

      Apple.com updating website.. exciting!

  • techguy8787

    ohh… good call..^^

  • techguy8787

    :(

  • bryan

    busted. I bet its 12AM PST, which is 3AM EST

  • Skoboten

    apparently not 12m :(

  • 12AM PST would be more likely… (Cupertino time)

  • Michael

    I have a very good contact at the Apple store, he is the manager, and it is going to be 12 Midnight PST, or 3AM EST. Hope this helps!

    • Monica

      Your contact was mistaken

  • iwanttheiphone4

    i'm gonna be so pissed if I stay up till 4 AM for it not to work !

  • Chad

    Yea PST is most likely

  • Jose

    I hope I can pre-order before I go to work tomorrow. -_-

  • techguy8787

    PDT would be most likely…

  • annoyed

    why the hell do we have to wait til 12 am PST….we all know EST runs this country….this is so unfair…Iol…just a little annoyed

    • baygirl

      apparently not since apple is based out of the bay and you're online waiting for something that came out of CA. Get over it.

  • ryan

    att is down for "Maintenance " as well

  • Matt

    damn now i gotta stay up for 3 more hrs damn i gotta work at 5:30am wtf…. what u guyz suggest white or black…. i got the 3g now in black… do i want white?

    • edtrauma

      white shows blood homie

    • Linda

      White noit available until later this summer per macrumors.com

    • jay

      only black Iphone4 will be available. SOrry, white not available till summer

  • annoyed

    yea I tried att as well…I keep checking it every few minutes lol

  • Pat

    I'm in freggin Chicago what time do I pre order

  • adman

    My question is are we supposed to order from apple's site or AT&T's site?

    • ATT will probably have the pre order link before Apple – just depends on if you want to stay up all night until 4am or not

  • Paulo

    its probably goin to be California time which is 9:25pm right now

  • rybo

    The apple site briefly said something about "we'll be back soon as we are updating" or something like that…I thought I was going to be allowed to order then…apparently not, darn it! Is it really going to be another 3 hours or so?

  • Clau

    Guess 3 a.m. sounds like it… I’m getting the white one, I love the fact that the front is white too. Do you think they will make me ship it to my billing address? can’t wait!

    • adman

      not to burst your white iPhone bubble of hope, but I've read several places (including this site) that the pre-orders are only going to be for the black iPhone 4. The white one won't be available until "later this summer."

      • Speed

        I've read all of that too, why would they not sell it until later in the Summer do you think?

      • Clau

        Now that really sucks! what's up with that??? Guess I'm going for the black one then, I'm not waiting any longer!

      • Geez

        Hey do you know why there not going to sale the white one??

        • tonysan

          I think its only an ATT thing. I would be seriously disappointed if they only release a black one. Steve said in the keynote that they both release on the 24th. It doesn't make sense that Apple would announce both colors and then come around and release just one without saying a thing. I'm crossing my fingers. I want that white one.

          • Geez

            Me to i will be mad but I called apple an they said why wouldnt we they predict that the black one will be out of stock before the white one does but i hope they have the white one i had a black iphone 3g for 4 months an hated it cuz it would be more smuged then the white one so im hoping they have the white if they dont im waiting til they do!

  • If you are with ATT now and want to get the contract upgrade price you have to order from them. New customers can order from Apple

    is everyone just watching att.com/wireless/iphone ?

    • cbillin6

      Not true, Apple has access to ATT system so they know…

  • techguy8787

    Apple's site would probably be the easiest…. it's either going to be 12:01 PDT (4:01 EDT) or 9:00 AM EDT (5:00 PDT) for the AT&T stores which open at 9:00 AM

  • edtrauma

    i heard the white version will not be availiable for awhile but i dont know if i trust the stoner i talked to at the store..

  • John-Paul

    I'm going to bed…then I'll order it while I eat my Cap'n Crunch in the morning. Hopefully it will not cut the roof of my mouth.

    • pinkphan

      Hi-larious!

  • Bobby

    I hear it is better to order from Apple's site

  • izzzz

    this sucks…i can't believe i actually thought i could pre-order at 12am est

  • edtrauma

    anyone know how to get around the one per household rule?

    • mattymattp

      one per phone line

  • Bill

    Asked at the Apple Store in Pittsburgh tonight, and was told if you order online (apple site) you will GET IT on launch day on your doorstep.

    • mattymattp

      at the upgrade price??

  • Guest

    4am eastern time…I just got off the phone with an AT&T lady…she didn't even know what was going on. She had to go talk to her manager. At first she told me that it was up at 12…lol. They're so lost.

  • bbgirl

    I think I'm sticking with the black. Oh, and I am definitely ordering through Apple. AH! I can't wait! BTW, the times I heard are 12am PST, 5:30am PST, and 6am PST. Too bad I'm on the east coast and have to stay up later :(

  • Hmmm

    Has anyone pre-ordered with the shipping option in the past? I'm wondering how soon after the 24th you would get it if it's shipped. Also, if you opt to pick it up in the store but can't come on the 24th, do they save it for you?

    • Bill

      Will be on your doorstep 7/24 will need to be signed for or you print a document from apple.com and leave on your door for ups to leave it.

      • Hmmm

        Thanks so much!!!

    • izzzz

      the apple rep i spoke to today said it COULD arrive before the 24th, but absolutely no later

  • Speed

    @adman, I've read all that too. Why would they do that though?

  • bob

    when will you be able then to pre-order the white one?

  • yahhett

    so is it 4am or 3 am EST?

  • Teach

    My local at&t store told me yesterday that they won't open till 7 am EST…i'm on hold w/ apple right now…been 35 minutes…thinking of hanging up and zzzzz……

    • Hmmm

      I talked to the Apple people today and they said they were not told what time it would be released.

  • edtrauma

    anyone know how to get around the one per household rule?

  • Dwight Kurt Schrute

    The white phone is ugly. Black is tight. Come on 12 AM PST!!!

  • aprilfools

    Just got my pre-order in on the Apple site.

    • Clau

      LOL nice try…

  • vman

    i have been on hold with apple for 40 minutes! think you can order that way??

  • bbgirl

    On another site, someone wrote "You can only get the discounted upgrade price if you order through AT&T; Ordering through Apple will cause you to pay full price." Please tell me this is not true!

    • cbillin6

      Not true, they have access to ATT systems

    • D Thompson

      Thats not true! Apple checks your eligibility before they let you purchase the upgrade.

  • iphoneguy

    I pre-ordered ipad 3G and it arrived my home exactly the day it was supposed to be released in stores … 3 hours earlier than stores were supposed to start the sale.

  • bob

    just spoke to ATT and they said that pre oder starts at 4am est online. call in to att to pre order starts at 7am est

  • Brittany

    What's the special upgrade price? I thought it was $199 either way.

  • yahhett

    Att&t website said if you pre-order it can be shipped to your house as early as the 24th

    • Chris

      Apple just took their Store offline to prepare. Won't be long.

  • iphonewillbesweet

    So as someone who is a bit nervous pre ordering the phone online because I like having someone I can yell at in person if things go wrong. What can I expect tonight and upon receiving my phone when I order it on apple.com

  • Geez

    Man if i stay up all night just to not see the white go on sale imma be pissed up in this i will raise hell!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • BigScottish

    Anybody else having to pay a 500 dollar deposit? I was told that a couple days ago on att.com after doing a credit check, but I haven't been able to find that page since. Hopefully I'll find out in a couple hours.

    Oh and by the way, I think it's pretty funny how we've all arrived at this site like this.

  • I talked to Apple and the white one will be available immediately. No delay until summer. That was a rumor.

  • mattymattp

    will i get the discounted upgrade price if i order through the apple store online??

    • Speed

      What does the discounted price mean? When I asked AT&T if I could upgrade they said "i could get the discounted price, after paying and 18 dollar upgrade fee" What does this mean?

  • Geez

    I meant not go on sale haha im so mad right now cuz i heard the white one wasnt going to be on sale until later this summer! I had the black iphone now ive been wating the white one of course they have to do this!

  • iPhone_4_me

    Either way you have to wait until it is the 15th in the Pacific Time Zone because it would not be fair if eastern could pre order while the rest of us wait.

  • BigScottish

    Surly if there was any truth to the white rumors, Jobs would have announced it at the keynote, like he did with the ipad 3g not being available right away.

  • Brittany

    What is the discounted upgrade price??? Does anyone know? I thought it was $199 either way.

  • LEET

    If you are worried about ordering through apple and the price you will have to pay. Use this tool on there site the results will be based on the 3gs and 3g but they go hand in hand if your gonna be able to upgrade and at what price.

  • DigitalPez

    iPhone Pricing [16GB/32GB]
    • Standard Upgrade [$199/$299]
    • Early Upgrade [$399/$499]
    • No Contractual Oblg. [$599/$699]

  • izzzz

    at least they could let us shop for ip4 accessories while we wait

    • iPhone_4_me

      No joke..

  • Geo

    When its finally available will i have to find it through the online apple store or do you think there will be a link on the iphone tab?

  • iwanttheiphone4

    so i broke my iphone 3g & now i'm waiting to get the iphone 4. should i order it on at&t or apple?

  • David

    I want it in white!

  • Danny

    anyone who lives in a condo or apartment and have ordered an iphone before, did they leave it at your door or in your mailbox?

    • steve

      this depends on way too many variables…your delivery driver for starters!….some will leave it, some won't…there's no law on that lol…it's the SAME as any other shipment..because it's an Iphone doesn't mean crap

    • pinkphan

      It requires a signature, so someone has to sign to receive the package.

  • Brittany

    I heard that if you're an existing At&T customer and NOT eligible for an upgrade, you can pay a fee of $18 and renew your contract for another 2 years, and then you can get the special upgrade price. Not sure if this is true.

    • Speed

      i've heard that too, but what is the "special upgrade price?" more or cheaper than 199?

      • guest

        Dial *NEW#

        • Lauren

          You have to be eligible for an upgrade, then they make you pay $18. That's what it said when I dialed that number about a week ago.

  • Anonymous

    that is true brittany. i just got a text message from at&t confirming that

  • ryan

    apple store is updating

  • Damages

    The Apple store has a Post-It note that says “We’ll be back soon”. Not much longer then I hope.

    • JoAnne

      Might be 12PST

  • Devon

    Apple Store website just went down

  • jez

    we are retards…

  • Platt

    Can we do the Early upgrade $399 thru the Apple website? Or thru ATT only?

  • Erika

    I can't take this. I have a flight to catch in the morning and we're all waiting here while we stare at a post-it sign. At least they could have put some catchy music on…

    • Geez

      LMAO Yes they should have im so excited i cant sleep until i order it then when the 23rd comes im gonna be up all night that night to!

  • janice

    you CAN preorder online correct??

    • Geez

      Yes you can either on AT&T.com or Apple.com

  • KBz

    The funny thing is, we're all staying up late to try and pre-order, but for what? they aren't gonna run out of pre-order! We all want to be the 1st to pre-order, which would be cool if we could get a serial # equivalent to our pre-order number…. then there'd be more reason behind it…. in any case, we're all just nuts!! hahaha

    • JJJ

      I'm pretty paranoid though, I feel like the pre-order is going to run out in like 2 minutes because of all of us crazy people! I'm staying up haha

      • KBz

        Yup! i think that's the way we all feel…. we know they wont, but we feel they will! hahaha, time to watch some movies to pass the time, and keep hitting refresh!

      • Geez

        Me to im afraid they will run out of the white ones if they do im gonna be madder than a bull!

  • Nick

    Apple store page is now unavailable- the pre order time is coming

    • IPHONE 4 COME ON

      AMEN

  • J

    Platt, if you are not eligible for an upgrade you can pay an $18 fee then you get the upgrade price ($199/$299).. and they will lock you in for another 2 year contract

  • mattymattp

    the 1800 my apple number is offline also

  • Kennon

    I was reading DigitalPez post on up in the blog and noticed early upgrade price, so my question is that will I have to pay that price if my plans 2 year agreement ends on june 22? So should I wait to preorder until then or do it as soon as I can to get the upgrade price?

    • pinkphan

      No, you're automatically eligible for the standard upgrade ($199/$299) at time of presale. :)

  • Erika

    What is this website anyway and why are we all here? This is so funny…

    • KBz

      Agreed!!

      • Geez

        Idk but im bored waiting to preorder they should atleast let us shop for iphone 4 accesories while we wait!

  • rhhattt

    i'm sure you can get it in white immediately. steve jobs announced black AND white during his iphone 4 speech.

  • sam

    hope its 3 looks to be true bye the site

  • If it's anything like the 3GS was, then:

    – if you go to AT&T, you can either buy the iPhone at full price, or you can get it at the with-contract price ($199/$299) by adding 2 years to your contract (or signing up for a new contract). AT&T is subsidizing the rest of the cost of the phone. AT&T will activate it for you.

    – if you go to Apple, you can buy it at full price, or if you are a NEW customer to AT&T you can buy it at the $199/$299 price and Apple will run the credit check, etc., and confirm you are contract eligible, and send you home to activate yourself with AT&T.

    – what you couldn't do, if you were an existing AT&T customer, is add onto your existing contract to get the $199/$299 price, by going to the Apple store – because Apple doesn't have direct access to your AT&T account to confirm your contract eligibility (ie: AT&T's willingness to pay the rest of your phone's cost in exchange for you signing a contract).

    But maybe they've straightened some of that out this time around?

    • Lauren

      I'm pretty sure they actually have a way for you to verify your account on apple's site now.

  • MIcah

    is it true that the white one is not available for preorder yet? please please!! can someone let me know!! i dont want to stay up till 3 (or 4 am) to find out that the white one is not available!!

  • Steve Jobs

    any idea…how long they wud take. ???? i may be asleep

  • iPhone_4_me

    Gee, I wonder how many of us are going to be negating each other as we all try to sign in and pre order at once. I apologize ahead of time for possibly taking your turn…LOL

  • lauren

    what if i dont want it shipped, are you able to pre order then go pick it up at your closest apple store? please say yes!

    • DigitalPez

      Yes.

  • Kelb

    Anyone know if you have to have some sort of Apple website account to pre-order? Or can you purchase it as a "guest"?

  • It seems like you can pre-order for delivery, or for in-store pickup. Pickup in AT&T store starts on June 25th if you pre-order. That's what an AT&T rep told me on chat today.

  • Erika

    I just realized that "soon" could mean 3 hours or 4 hours. I have no idea what "soon" means. Should we all agree to set a time limit? And wouldn't it be funny if Steve Jobs was watching all our posts…

  • bob

    since they put the we'll be back soon will it still not be back online till 3:00 est

  • ytooahh

    i talked to an apple representative and they told me you won't be able to pre-order until 9AM EST. i have no idea though, some say 3AM. i guess we'll see.

  • Speed

    it's so stupid to have to pay 299/300 for an "early upgrade" plus and extra 18 dollars. You would think ATT would be happy that you are signing another 2 years with them… Pisses me off.

  • steve

    i bet Steve Jobs is sitting in his boxers, with his Macbook Pro on his lap, eating a Twinkie, and reading all of our posts, laughing his ass off…..while counting the dollar signs as well.

    • Seed

      Ain't that the truth!

      • steve

        that guys a genius…..

  • E123

    ……..Blankly staring at the screen while taking another sip of coffee. We're such losers hahaha oh boy.

  • iPhone_4_me

    So what all should we have ready and waiting when we finally get the chance to pre order?

    • Seed

      I'm guessing credit card.. and if you want to upgrade you better make sure your AT&T account is up to date and all paid off.. Or else they won't let you upgrade.

  • JoAnne

    I see the post it! Excited!

  • Bapu

    Apple is updating their site people… it will be up any timeeeeee.. get ready with ur credit cards

  • MIcah

    is it true that the white one is not available for preorder yet? please please let me know!! i dont want to wait ill 3 or 4 to find out that i cant get the white one yet

  • whoknows

    Will I be able to bill my pre-order to my account, or do I have to pay for it immediately?

  • Steve

    LOL! Could you imagine if hackers broke into Apple's and At&t's sites and put them offline! Talk about making the news!

  • Erika

    I'm done. My husband is pressuring me to go to sleep because I have an early flight and my eyes are burning from staring at my TV that doubles as a screen. Good Night and Good Luck! I'll be back in 4 hours after my power nap…

  • sam

    from what i was told you can order at discount price with a upgrade through apple same as if you went through att

    • Seed

      Good I hope so!

      • tonysan

        I am sure you can do this. I bought a 3GS for discounted price about 3 months ago from the apple store. Thank God i have 3 other lines eligible for discounted price iPhones!

  • Seed

    I hope we can order it on the Apple site for the special upgrade price even if we're an existing customer. (A previous post said you weren't able to do this for the 3gs)

    • Bapu

      If ur contract expires within 2010 then u will be able to pay a small fee and renew and get the iphone 4.. otherwise u r outa luck.. i guess

      • iPhone_4_me

        Even if your contract doesn't expire until 2011 you can still upgrade to the iPhone 4. It will just be more money. $399/$499.

    • Awesome, I hope so!

  • Bapu

    Lot of sources have confirmed that white Iphone 4 will not be available at launch… Who here wants White????? I can't make up my mind..

    • steve

      this is NOT true….white will be available

    • JKQ

      I can't make up mine either! I wish I could hold them both in my hand to decide haha this decision is so hard!

      • WHAT COLOR

        You want the black one because the scrapes wouldnt be noticble if you got a scrape on it unless you use a case then you can just get the white one idk which one to pick either HELP US WITH THE COLOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Bapu

    Must I get white if it is available??? if not I ain't gonna wait.. shit i am hanging on to Gen 1 iphone using Edgeeeee… can't wait even a minute more

  • POOP

    Does anybody know if im upgrade to an excisting acccount can i still preorder off of apple.com i heard you couldnt i hope thats not the case!

  • Bapu

    Who here still uses iphone gen 1, like I do…!!! hopefully our patience will be paid off soon

  • Michael Hayes

    • IDK

      They said you could only order 1 iPhone per household are you sure thats what they said!

      • mattymattp

        just called them again. if i am ordering through apple (which i am doing) i can have both phones (because I have two numbers) shipped to my house to two names

    • Bee

      Really? Useful info.. but doesn't it make more sense that it would be 3AM Eastern and 12 AM Pacific?? Ughhhh

      • mattymattp

        i think they are saying 4am so the public doesnt crash the site

  • Steve

    im in chicago!! its 12:30am watching ESPN baby! So what time here is this f'n phone gonna go on sale!!????

  • Ron Jeremy

    zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz —-iphone4 …….zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  • JMC5000

    So even though I am an existing customer can I still upgrade through Apples website?

    • mattymattp

      yes. make sure youre bill is paid up though

  • Anonymous

    any guys out there who think white phone doesn’t look girly???

  • JKQ

    Uh oh did we crash this site?

  • Passion Guy

    Haa….I am doing two things at the moment..seeing d apple.com website and seeing the growing comments on this blog….lol..so..reading d comments and …I dunno..wat time it will come..but most likely seeing d posts …its 4am EST….so…I am up..I am awake…good going guys…for all the little pieces of info…everybody is posting…

  • Thomas
  • iPhone_4_me

    Do I have to use a credit card specifically if I were to order through Apple.com or can I use my check card? This may seem like a moronic question but I just want to be completely sure about everything before I dive into this..

    • Bee

      You can use a debit card.

      • iPhone_4_me

        Awesome! Thank Ya kindly. Hopefully that clears up my questions..

      • FOR ME

        Im using debit

        • iPhone_4_me

          Now if we do it through Apple do we get charged instantaneously or not until it is shipped?

          • Bra' Kehri Frazier

            i've heard to different things, that your charged when you order, and also i've heard that your charged the day or release

              yeah same here. I can handle either way but would be nice to find out sooner than later.

              • JoseR

                I heard they charge you the day they ship the iPhone. but either way people should have enough money just in case.

                • iPhone_4_me

                  ALWAYS! :-D

  • Chat

    This iPhone 4 better be worth it to stay up i know it will be i love how the white is in the front now an it has iChat even the iPad dont have that!!!!!!!!

  • Hmmm

    Why is it an advantage to buy it from the Apple store instead of ATT? (Let's just assume for a second that you can buy it from either for the same price)

  • Palm

    This here is called dedication!!! I will be very angry if I stay up until 3AM and it's still not available! :(

  • CAnt wait

    Only 3 hours if its tru time! i cant wait baby its like getting a new xbox 360 in the mail! But better than that!

  • Steve Jobs
  • tello

    how would u order through att

  • iphone_Release_Time?

    so which is it:

    04:00Eastern … 01:00 Pacific OR
    03:00 Eastern … 12:00 Pacific?

  • Steven

    Just order it in the morning and go to bed. They won't run out before morning.

  • Bra' Kehri Frazier

    ITS UP. or @least it is in Austin http://www.att.com/wireless/iphone/?wtSlotClick=1

    • Bra' Kehri Frazier

      wait nvm, it doesn't let you select the iPhone 4. only the 3gs. GOT DAMMIT. im going to sleep lol

  • JMC5000

    WHY DOES MY UPGRADE ELIGIBILITY SAY 2011?! I have the 3gs don't I get early upgrade?! Can I preorder through apple if I already have a contract with AT&T? :(

    • iPhone_4_me

      Yes. I am in the same boat and have verified this many times..Apple will ask you for some info and will charge you the early upgrade price. It just won't be the $199/$299 but rather $399/$499

      • JMC5000

        Wait so I have to pay $400 now?!

        • iPhone_4_me

          If you are choosing to upgrade before your time then yes. $399 for 16GB and $499 for 32GB

          • JMC5000

            That doesnt make sense to me. The last time they gave me early upgrade even though my two years wasn't up. I thought previous iPhone owners were automatically given that?

            • Chris

              Only eligible if your upgrade was due in 2010. AT&T giving up to 6 months grace on upgrades.

            • iPhone_4_me

              Apparently its only if you are within 6 months of contract end. At least you don't have to pay full retail price. Those prices are insane!

              • JMC5000

                Yea thats true but do you think they will bend the rules at all? I've been with AT&T for ages.

                • iPhone_4_me

                  So have I but I read that unless your the primary account holder which pays at least $100 a month you do not get any rules bent. We can always hold on to HOPE.

                  • JMC5000

                    UGH. I also heard the only one available for preorder is black. I want the white one… APPLE CURSE YOU!!

                    • iPhone_4_me

                      I want the white one too! I have a feeling it will be available through Apple pre ordering.

                    • JMC5000

                      I hope so! It needs to match my Mac! So how much will tax and shipping be? Any estimates?

  • Steve Jobs

    Now twitter acting

    Something is technically wrong.

    Thanks for noticing—we're going to fix it up and have things back to normal soon.

  • iPhone_4_me

    This is a pain constantly refreshing then finding out I missed posts because I'm seeing my last post as literally the last post.

  • iPhone_4_me

    Will we get charged the $18 upgrade fee?

    • Speed

      you'll get charged the 18 dollar upgrade fee if your current 2 year contract is not yet up. Not only do you have to pay 18 dollars but the price of the iPhone goes from $199/299 all the way to $299/399.

      • iPhone_4_me

        Actually its $399/$499 but thanks. I'm glad I already prepared for the $18 fee lol.

        • Sardonic

          I'm definitely due for an upgrade (2 year contract is up) but it's still telling me I need to pay the $18 upgrade fee…

      • mattymattp

        everyone has to pay the $18.00 upgrade fee

  • Palm

    BLACK OR WHITE EVERYONE???????!!!!!!

    • iPhone_4_me

      I want white but will take what is offered.

  • Steve Jobs

    I dont see 4g option on att upgrade…anyone ??

    • Bra' Kehri Frazier

      not ready yet, their still updating

  • Randy

    Can i have three phones shipped to one address? They're all different accounts…

    • Bra' Kehri Frazier

      I've heard one phone per house address, and like two phones per person when ordering in the store

    • mattymattp

      i just called at&t again. He said since I am ordering through the apple store online than I can have a phone for each number shiped to my house (so its two in my case). They said that If i am going through at&t I can have one shipped to my house and the second person MUST go to the store. He also said that if I encounter a problem ordering on the apple site, just make sure I am using two different names.

  • BigScottish

    Anybody else having to pay a 500 dollar deposit? I was told that a couple days ago on att.com after doing a credit check, but I haven't been able to find that page since. Hopefully I'll find out in a couple hours.

    • iPhone_4_me

      Haven't heard of that.

  • Steve Jobs

    Please RESPOND me……anyone able to pre-order yet ???

    • gabe

      not yet both att and apple sites still not allowing

  • Hmmm

    I specifically called to find out when you get charged and the Apple representative said you pay when you pre-order not at the release date

    • iPhone_4_me

      Well if I pay the price now then I better get that phone ON the 24th lol.

  • Hmmm

    Nope

  • ExistingCustomer

    Existing iPhone (first gen) customer will I be able to keep my unlimited data? if I upgrade to iPhone4? (really don't like the idea of a data cap

    • gabe

      yes, i spoke with att a little bit ago and they told me i could keep my plan

      • ExistingCustomer

        even with the Edge 20$/month for data or will we have to upgrade to the 30$/month + text?

        • tello

          if u already had the unlimited plan before getting this phone then u are grandfathered

        • guest

          you can only keep the $30 per month plan – if you are on $20 per month- that plan will be eliminated

          • ExistingCustomer

            so am I able to then upgrade to the 30$ unlimited from the 20$ unlimited to keep the unlimited (since I'm an existing Iphone customer)?

          • Guest

            Will Apple know were are original customers w/ those original plans…or is that ATT only who can grandfather us in?

  • Guest

    I have been an ATT customer since April 2008 when I bought the ORIGINAL iPHONE….I have now been out of contract since April 2010…now here is the QUESTION….

    Do I need to go to the APPLE or ATT site to preorder?

    also….

    I am eligible for the 199.99 price correct?

    • iPhone_4_me

      You can probably go to Apple.com or AT&T.com and pre order. You have to start a whole new contract and POSSIBLY pay an upgrade fee but the price should be $199

      • Guest

        Ok…I have to assume the apple.com will be easier…right?….this will be A SERIOUS UPGRADE…from the ORIGINAL TO THE IPHONE 4!!…

        • iPhone_4_me

          Yes. I have never pre ordered before but trust me when I say I have researched ALOT!! Apple seems to be the easiest because they can run your info, give you your price and ship your item so it will most likely be in your position the day of launch. I'm also hoping that maybe the white one will be available through Apple.
          This will be a nice improvement!!!

  • at&t manager no name

    no iphone untill 7am est sorry <3

    • iPhone_4_me

      Where is this evidence?

      • mattymattp

        this is BS. I was told multiple times by at&t 4AM but both times they said you can order at 4am so you only have X amount of hours left, the math worked out to 3am. I think its 3 am and they are just saying 4 so the site doesnt crash, or at&t wont be ready at 3. My money is on 3AM.

        • iPhone_4_me

          What time zone?

          • mattymattp

            EST

            • mattymattp

              everything apple does always goes by california time. its technicaly not the 15th there yet for another 30 minutes according to my clock.

        • B123

          Same here. Let's hope!

    • at&t manager no name

      SORRY I DOUBLE CHECKED IT 1:00 AM PACIFC TIME WHICH IS 4:OO AM EST !!!!!!!!!!!!! NOT 7AM PACIFC TIME SORRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY GOOD LUCK TO ALL

  • iPhone_4_me

    Ok guys. Big Question: 16GB or 32GB?

    Sound off

    • Randy

      32GB all the way for that HD video!

    • tello

      i need a 32…i dont have any room on my 16

    • iPhone_4_me

      Yeah I could probably make do with the 16GB but for the extra $100 I would rather be safe than sorry. Especially with that HD video.

  • Laura

    im in chicago, what time can i pre order?

    • iPhone_4_me

      2 according to the times people are posting

  • BigScottish

    32 for me. Upgrading from an 32 ipod touch, and I almost have 16 in just music alone. So 16 wouldn't do me a lot of good.

  • therussiangirl

    common already!!!!!!!
    My hands r itching to start pre ordering…lol

    • iPhone_4_me

      Your not alone!!!

      • therussiangirl

        *friendly hug*

    • mattymattp

      this whole how many phones i can order thing is confusing

      • mattymattp

        i read so many posts and talked to so many at&t reps that IDK what the hell is the deal.

        • iPhone_4_me

          From what I gathered, you can only get as many as you have in your plan.

        • therussiangirl

          havent talked to anyone…but…done the math….and if its not available in 30 minutes then i am going naughty nighting:)….
          and if it is available, they better have a white one….cause if not, i will be cussing alooooooooot till all my neighbors start bitching…lol

          • iPhone_4_me

            haha same here! I want the white one soo bad but will take the black if need be.

            • therussiangirl

              they better have a white one!…Or i am gonna be bitch slapping a lot of people in the Apple store tomorrow…lol

        • App

          I know… I really need 2 but only one of my lines is eligible for an upgrade. Hmm

      • therussiangirl

        how many do u actually want?:)

        • mattymattp

          i am looking to upgrade both iphones.

          • therussiangirl

            if you have 2 registered for iphones then u shouldnt have a problem upgrading both:)

            • mattymattp

              i hope thats the case. crossing all apendages

  • BigScottish

    I am going to make an educated guess based on everything I have read up until this point that the Apple store will be back up in 30 mins. Seem very logical to me.

    • therussiangirl

      i like your positive outllook:)

    • iPhone_4_me

      I like this!!

    • BigScottish

      I don't want to think about it too much, but once this is over we still have over a week til we actually get the phone :(.

      • iPhone_4_me

        I know I know but just think: It's yours! Yeah you have to wait but at least it will be yours no matter what!

        • therussiangirl

          Exactly:)))

          • iPhone_4_me

            That feeling alone will make up for the wait!

            • therussiangirl

              besides…who needs sleep these days anywayz…lol…

              • iPhone_4_me

                I'm just glad I don't have work tomorrow. But I do have a test…

  • App

    30 more minutes then I'm going to sleep!

    • iPhone_4_me

      Not to sound too awkward but once I get this thing ordered I will go to sleep with a smile on my face! :-D

    • tired

      23 minutes …?

    • mattymattp

      same for me. i wanted to go to bed knowing i ordered my phones but the reality is they arent going to run out on the pre order and we will still be able to order. I am just an obsessed fan that is going to regret staing up so late when my 8 month old wakes up in an hour screaming her head off. FML but i love apple

      • iPhone_4_me

        Oh boy am I in your position. I love Apple and their phones and can't wait the 6-7 hours to order. iPhone 4 > Sleep

    • therussiangirl

      Agreed!

      • hoping

        12 minutes … (fingers crossed)?

        • therussiangirl

          9 minutes….fingers crossed..toes crossed…and boobies r crossed as well:)

    • iPhone_4_me

      agreed

  • Sardonic

    Do you guys think there will be an option to pay when you pick it up? Or maybe just a down payment now?

    • iPhone_4_me

      I have no clue.

    • App

      I believe you must pay in full at time of pre order.

  • CANT WAIT

    AT&T is back up it seems like were getting closer guys!

  • therussiangirl

    which exactly link r we suppose to use to order one?..the same page where we signed up to be notified?

  • PEM

    Jermey ROBIN IPHONEEEEEEEEEEEEE 2 am hurry up

  • iphoneobsession

    Is there a limit on how many iphones you can pre-order. The whole family is upgrading– all five lines.

  • CABLE GUY

    AT&T HAS JUST SAID SIGN UPS START AT 1205AM

    • whoknows

  • iPhone_4_me

    Thats a good question.

    • therussiangirl

    Looks Like ATT is taking preorders now.

    • App

      No it's not

  • WTFSUN

    ATT has locked me out of my account for an hour. Seems like you guys have figured out that you can order from apple with the same “discount”. Any word on if the 64g will be available in white? It’s like no one wants my $300! The att site says it’ll be delivered AS SOON as the 24th. IMO this means that if you get in asap, your order will ship first round and it’ll be on my doorstep the 24th. Thoughts?

    • iPhone_4_me

      No 64GB

    • tello

      there is no 64g…its only 16g and 32g

    • blcinsd

      There is no 64 GB. You have 16 and 32 GB models both in White or Black.

      • 32GB WHITE:)

        • iPhone_4_me

          I am with you alllll the way! This is exactly what I'm shooting for!

          • i say we burn it!!! lol im a secret pyro shhhhhh O.o

  • Can still get into my ATT account. Just can't do anything useful in there. :)

    lol – this has become the stay-up thread.

  • mister m
    • BigScottish

      Thanks, but I'm not here for the 3gs.

  • WTFSUN

    Anyone know if there are any good CLEAR cases that will be available immediately? If it's like the 3g, the apple store will have like 2 choices for a month after the damn thing comes out. Glass on both sides means a case is a must and there is no point in picking a color if you cant see it anyway.

  • Lets talk about something pleasant rather than obsessing over time..still 45 minutes left…..

    Lets talk about cases..did anyone find any cases for the new 4?

    • jasmin

      if im right they're just coming out with bumpers.

    • iPhone_4_me

      I found a site that had LOADS of cases for the iPhone 4 but I forgot what it was called…..

  • Chris

    I just wanna fudgin' order it so I can go to bed!!!

  • iPhone_4_me

    I am making this post so we can continue the previous one because it is getting wayy tooo small

  • App

    Where does it say pre order on the ATT site? It still says Coming Soon for me

  • anton

    maybe they are waiting for apple to take preorders..cuz apple's store is currently down…

  • PEM

    I set my alarm 5 min till 12 and find out its cali time then i reset the alarm for 5 min till 2 and LOOK WHAT TIME IT IS :(…….. this is depressing!!!!!

  • Marvelous_Marv

    Good thing I work graveyard shift or else I’d be dead tired the rest. Stay Up People!!!

  • neediphone4preorder/

          • how about "i will always love you" by whitney houston because we will always love apple no matter how long they make us wait lol

              AGREEE

              • do NOT refresh lol i made that mistake and took forever to get back to processing

  • It looks like there will be quite a few iPhone 4 hopefuls being disappointed come launch day the 24th of June as those who are wanting to grab hold of the new iPhone 4 in white rather than black will find they still have a bit of a wait ahead.

    The reason being according to an article by Chris Ziegler over on Engadget, by way of Modmyi, AT&T will only offer the black iPhone 4 as of launch and the white iPhone 4 will follow at “later this summer.”

    Now we have been running a poll on whether our readership would opt for the black or white iPhone 4 and currently the white iPhone 4 is more popular than its black counterpart, you can check out the figure on that poll by hitting up (here).

    Unfortunately is isn’t known if the black only available on launch day extends beyond the Big Blue so it is possible that 3rd party retailers just may offer the white iPhone 4 as of launch day, but if the exclusive carrier in the States isn’t going to offer the white iPhone 4 on June 24th, it doesn’t look good for anywhere else does it.

  • Patienceless

    I made it through and i was about to finalize….than some BS about it timing out…started over and its taking forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • tbone

    well at least its up..this might just take forever..prob at&t's end for sure

  • fausto

    processing information………. has anyone been able to successfully pre-order?

  • jow

    did anyone get through on att website

  • no white?

    taking so loongg to processss

  • apple says I can reserve the 32g black for 699 for instore pick up, even though att said I'm eligible for upgrade…anyone else having this issue?

  • Chris

    Has anyone gotten through? Mine keeps hanging up when it tries to access AT&T account info…

  • tbone

    yep definitely AT&T's end…..just tried to use their site and its all messed up…

  • colin

    I finally got throught but it said pick up only and I had to pay $700 eventhough I checked last week I could upgrade. I'm closer to giving up and waitong for att's site.

  • roy

    i dont have a contract with att. how come im getting charged 399 for the 16???!!! WTF?!!

    • duh

      well there's your answer, you don't have a contract. so it's higher. with contract its 199.

  • Metsman339

    hey everyone, i was able to make it all the way through and order an iphone 4–got to the thank you screen and received a confirmation e-mail…hang in there, it'll process

    • whoknows

      How long did it take?

      • stephanie

        and did you actually get it delivered to your house? I cant get it to stop wanting me to only pick it up in store.

        • Metsman339

          well i actually submitted my order at 4:02 (i'm in NY), it really only took about 15 seconds…and yes, it is being delivered to my house–it says "Ships: Delivers on June 24"

  • i am sooooo effin upset…we waited and now it doesnt work :( and i is so sleepys.

  • stephanie

    with all the hype you would have thought this would have gone off without a hitch.

    ha. j/k :p

  • roy

    how come i cant order? its still "notify me"?

  • Lots of issues with the AT&T bit of the process. Can't get their folks on the phone, either – it says "1 minute" until someone will answer but then it just hangs up on you.

  • tbone

    has anyone got AT&T to work….says Error 403 forbidden…apple says just processing information for 10 plus mins now

  • pucksiouz

    • stephanie

        • earthconfed

          i got it thru their premier store.

          • stephanie

            that's where i was…sigh.

      • Do you have a link to the page on AT&T that actually allows pre-ordering?

  • WTF

    Does anybody know if AT&T going to have the white one because there still down again

  • earthconfed

    You can only reserve 1 with your apple ID on the apple store.

    • idk

      Can you the white one

  • Metsman339

    stephanie, yes, i got mine delivered to my house through the apple store

    • lucky!

    • stephanie

      yeah, i think it's a billing/shipping address issue. :(

  • Got1

    Just placed my order!!!

  • ryan

    OK did anyone see the 4 on the upgrade page of att???

  • Bri22

    Aritt site still says "coming soon"???

  • tbone

    This is so frustrating AT&T is horrid…i have 3 apple links trying to process my AT&T information…and AT&T website is down for upgrading status…

    • pucksiouz

      i have two windows processing information b/c i have 2 lines on my account eligible for upgrade so hopefully it works!!!

  • laxmax17

    in store pickup!!!!
    so now i can check during the day tm to see if radio shack can preorder the white

    • u think that u can exchange for the white within the 30 day period?

      • laxmax17

        i dunno, however if radioshack can promise me a white one (which i doubt given apple doesnt even have them) i can just cancel my reservation and do it thru radioshack

  • ryan

    tbone – I an get to the ATT site BUT no iphone 4 listed!

  • tbone

    has anyone that is an existing AT&T customer been able to get their existing account information from apple's website I hope we don't have to wait till 7am because AT&T blows

    • laxmax17

      yes i just did. it took 3 attempts tho

      • arar

        ^WTF lol

      • Metsman339

        i did, it took 1 attempt

    • App

      I cannot get it! It's stuck at the Processing Information screen. I've tried about 20 times since 4AM on the dot. WTF

  • keifer

  • tbone

  • mattymattp

    if i pre order it to ship at my house will i get it on launch day?

  • MMLewis820

    It has kicked me our 3 times already and not it just says processing… come on apple I want me 32 GB

  • tbone

    I think the people who have got it to go through are not AT&T existing customers….it seems like this is all AT&T's fault and apple is not apple to get our information from their website…just another example of why AT&T blows

  • pucksiouz

    apple has been processing information for the past 15-20 minutes….anyone else waiting this long or longer???

    • Got1

      u have to redo it…i re did it twice and i just ordered mine

  • i am now 80 years old, waiting for my iphone 4 pre order to process meehhhh where are my teeths? ugh im about to give up since u can only get the black anyway.

    • rvc

      Lol! I almost got to the end and then the server dropped! I love your comment!

    • Don't give up..Stay strong!

      • im trying but alzheimers is kicking in mehhhh

    • hehe

      this poor guy is probably dust by now…and I bet he never got his iphone.

      • im am definitely a girl lol but its okay my screen name doesnt make that obvious, aaaaand thanks to at&t i got my iphone before i could forget who my grandchildren were mehhhhh

  • arar

    got through and then on my way to the last screen server dumps out!!!! ahhhhhhhh

  • Blo

    Whoever got theirs, did you let it sit on the waiting screens or did you exit out and just start over to get it?

  • stephanie

    "We were unable to complete set up online.

    To finish creating your account, you’ll need to visit an Apple Retail Store where we can help you in person."

    That's all I keep getting. I have an AppleID and have ordered online before…What gives?

  • Hmmm

    ALthough the apple site said I'm eligible (then processed forever and kicked me off), the ATT site keeps saying "No plans available" – anyone else have this problem?

  • Jackie

    Is anyone getting thru on-line

  • I got alll the way to the end and bam! error….

    Any idea the total price of each?

  • c0dex

    this is frustrating

  • processing info for 40 minutes….

    • Geo

      Mine is 25 but its still frustrating the heck outta me

  • mmw

    same here, been waiting for 20min already

  • Metsman339

    Hey guys, I am an existing AT&T customer with an iphone 3g…i was able to log in on apple's site, and i ordered an iphone 4 to be delivered to my house–the process took no more than 20 seconds…i think i got in before most people though

    • stephanie

      were your billing and shipping addresses the same? im starting to wonder if thats my problem

      • Metsman339

        they were the same, yes…on my confirmation e-mail it says that iphones must be shipped to the AT&T billing address–maybe try making it the same addresss

        • stephanie

          it's a PO Box…and they don't ship to them. Guess it's night night for me. One less person trying…

    • Mine is taking forever to process…

      • gottabelieve

        showing processing with spinning circle for 30+ minutes now

    • Janet

      I keep getting time out at the last step..

  • Jackie

    Is the AT&T information for upgrading status still down?

  • tbone

    has anyone got their AT&T information loaded on apple site…been processing this information for over 40 mins now and i have 5 plus tabs open now trying to load….

  • colin

    att fonally has it but i get kicked off every 3 seconds

    • ditti

      the lady at att said they were updating their systems,
      THEIR SYSTEMS? THE NIGHT THIS WAS TO HAPPEN?
      dumb asses!

  • Blo

    I just clicked pick up in store. And it said it would be $599 but I'm sure that is a mistake. Because I am eligible for an upgrade.

    • ditti

      same with me!
      only mine said 699$

  • Wally

    I got through then it crapped out WTF

  • Anonymous

    Been “re-doing” it since 4:00, that’s 50 minutes now……I wanna fist fight anyone who works for apple

  • Akash

    Whohoo! Managed to pre-order mine just!
    Came to £499 from the UK for the 16GB version

  • Every time I get close to the end it says "Session Expired"

  • bob

    how long does it take to do the processing information part?

  • TOOP

    Just managed to order through AT&T and got it shipped. Also managed to ship to an address different from my regular billing address. Looks like the AT&T website is working better than the Apple website. I tried the Apple website so many times but it crashes at various steps.

  • ditti

    YES!
    Finally went through after an hour,

    When:Thursday, June 24
    Where:Palo Alto, Palo Alto
    What:IPHONE 4 BLACK 32GB-USA
    $699.00

    price is prolly a mistake cause att says I'm eligible for the upgrade price….

  • rvc

    Me too! I almost got to the end twice and it's been an hour of multiple attempts. One of my windows ended up on a reserve page, so I reserved one. Is that enough, or should I still try to pre-order one in case they sell out???

  • pucksiouz

    FINALLY GOT THROUGH AND RESERVED AFTER ABOUT TRYING FOR 58 MINUTES!!!

  • ryan

    WHEN you got it thru att were you upgrading? If so where did you fine the ip4?

    • pucksiouz

      the upgrade i got through apple because i was having no luck with at&t.

  • I couldn't get a pre-order to go thru, but i was able to reserve one for in-store pickup on the 24th. No confirmation email yet so not really convinced it worked.

    ATT now has the upgrade option on their front page but once you log into your account you can't get to it again. I haven't found anyone that has successfully used ATT's site to upgrade.

    • tnt

      did it 2 times for 2 lines on my acct thru att… on apple – no bueno

      • ryan

        where did you sfind the iphone 4 on the att site to upgrade?

        • tnt

          after clicking on upgrade eligibility, site takes you to selection of phones… there was a gray iphone 4 ad box that says pre-order now… clicked that, scroll down and locate the iphone 4 – there are blue 'pre-order' buttons to the right of them… click that, follow the next few steps (select data plan or keep existing, add any accessories, enter info, complete)

          • ryan

            damn i dont have anything with iphone 4.. A

            • stephanie

              me either

            • tnt

              try this link? http://www.att.com/wireless/iphone/?UvPkgId=

              Then log into your acct?

              just noticed my acct is a premier business acct – but would think that shouldn't make a difference…

              • ryan

                Yea been trying that. as soon as i login no upgrate to IP4 . great. LOL

    • ditti

      That's wahat i get on the att site….

  • colin

    just got it to work on att website!!! time for sleep

  • TOOP

    Just managed to order through AT&T and got it shipped. Also managed to ship to an address different from my regular billing address. Looks like the AT&T website is working better than the Apple website. I tried the Apple website so many times but it crashes at various steps.

    I upgraded through the AT&T website. I don't know if it makes a difference that I was logged on to the AT&T premier website since I have a company discount. Good luck to all!

  • idk

    Can someone send me a link to the iphone on att website

  • just ordered mine thru att and it went thru smooth as hell…screw apple site.im going to sleep.goodnight america!

  • Hmmm

    It keeps saying "There are no plans available for you device at this time" It says to Choose Existing plan, but there is no button for that. Help!

  • shitz

    AT&T are out of stock of iPhone 4

  • BigScottish

    Kind of bummed right now. Wasn't able to pre order it online because of my 0 credit history. Guess I'll need to go to the store tomorrow and pay that 500 dollar deposit :(. Oh well, good night guys, and enjoy your iPhones.

  • Ohwell

    I never get the 4 as an upgrade option. Just shows the 3

  • colin

    i haven't gotten an email from att yet, but as long as it went through im happy

  • im a new customer and i just realized they only asked me for my info when they were doing the credit check and then charged my card, they did ask for any billing or shipping info, they also didnt ask if i wanted it to be delivered to a store, should i just assume itll be delivered to my house? i ordered thru att

  • iphoneking

    use the following link and test your luck if your company has a tieup with att. if yes, you will get 20% discount on monthly bill.
    https://www.wireless.att.com/business/

    • Bapu

      I know my company is eligible for discount.. however it would be nicer if the discount applied on the phone as well…

  • Passion Guy

    Finally got it thru apple.com….time to sleep…but in these initial hours..ATT performed much better than Apple…

    • i agree 100% i broke down and went thru at&t…hope it was worth it

    • stephanie

      disagree.

      called ATT and they said 90% of business premier members cant even access the new iphone. mostly angry because that includes me lol

  • idk

    Should i get black or should i wait for white

  • guest

    I get pretty far in the pre-order process, then I get this message: To finish creating your account, you’ll need to visit an Apple Retail Store where we can help you in person. Can anyone help?

    • maybe you need to pay a security deposit? are u a new customer?

      • guest

        no, I've been with att for a long time. I've gone through the process probably 4 times, and get this every time. I am going through apple.com

    • MMLewis820

      I am currently an AT&T customer as well and I am getting the same message…

    • steve

      if you already have at&t just do it on their site..no issues

  • Ferociouz_Loko

    I just pre-ordered my iPhone 4 on AT&T website.. Apple was stuck on loop.. So I went 2 AT&T and boom.. It was there.. Was up around 2:10am pacific-L.A.. Good luck my ppl!!!!

  • Steve

    mine went through on At&t with no problem..existing 3g customer..got the 199 price..no hang ups at all…i actually got mine to go through over an hour ago…got the black 16gb..shipped directly to my house so i don't have to deal with that in-store BS!!

    • woot

      same here wooot!

  • Steve

    why won't you people just use At&t's site?? everyone's having problems with apples…no issues with at&t..AND they'll ship it to you as well…you don't HAVE to use Apples site!

    • because everyone is convinced that att wont deliver on release day, id rather take the chance then spen my whole morning fighting with the apple page.att went smooth for me too

  • got my iphone

    Apple just crashed. If you haven't already and have an ATT acount, their website is taking pre orders right now without problems. I did it in less than 5 minutes…thank god. I waited for an hour at apple no luck. kinda weird how apple is that one that's not prepared for this server crash.

  • waiting

    where is everyone going on att website?????

  • stephanie

    of course i click add to cart on apple and the fucking sticky note pops back up. BS.

    i called ATT and a lot of business premier members are screwed out of seeing the iphone due to the "overhwhelming demand"…so unexpected, i'm sure. no one could have guessed that the new iphone would have been popular.

  • Platt78

    ATT is UP..I honestly just preordered NO PROBLEM!! No joke

  • Platt78

    ATT is your best bet..I just looked at apple again and its still screwed…ATT has FREE overnight shipping too!!!!

  • geo

    My screen has said processing info for over an hr going to bed maybe when i wake up it will have gone threw

  • Jake

    When I try to preorder on AT&T site, I am forced to log in and asked to upgrade. Then I only see the 3gs. Where is everyone going???

    • WED

      same here, anyone else seeing this problem???

      • MMLewis820

        yea i am al well ans now that apple website is down again

        • WED

          neither of you have ordered one yet right? I was able to get one ordered for another account, but was just wanting to make sure it wasn't related to the fact that I had already placed one order for one account. Wouldn't think so, but of course ALL the possibilities are going through my head at this point..

          Yeah seems Apple's site has had MUCH more trouble than AT&T. I was able to breeze through At&T's around 5:30EST and order one pretty quick.

  • nick

    if you order it from att can you pick it up at the apple store

    • Niño

      No sir you can't. That's like saying ordering at target.com and picking up at nearest walmart.

  • WED

    FYI – If you're not seeing the new phone listed in your options on AT&T and have a corporate discount of some sort that is the reason. I have 2 separate accounts , one with a corporate discount and one without. The non-corporate continues to show the 4G available for all 3 phones on that account. The corporate discount account does not show it for any of the 4 phones on that account….. AT&T please hurry and fix this……

    • Eng

      Well when I ordered mine from a regular acct, it was in bold lettering no discounts on new iPhone. So I guess that's the reason why you won't see it on your discount acct.

    • john

      im having that same problem with only the 3g's showing on ATT's store

      • john

        no I should get the upgrade i get it on apples site then it crashes, plus i have not used an upgrade since early 2008

    • Yeah, I can't even try anymore – they did at least fix that. If you have a corp discount they just turned off the automatic upgrade process, and replaced it with this:

  • got mine. yesssssssssss

  • Dude

    Guys if you haven't got one. Download apple store app, at app store on your iPhone. It will let you upgrade and pre order. Only downside, pick up only at apple location.

  • ricky

    i have not gotten the email from apple yet after you pre-order the iphone so does any one know what is in the email?

  • dude

    I got mine thru ATT and upgraded a line last night. They also charged my card already. Now my line shows available for upgrade on 2012. So I'm assuming my order is good.

  • platt78

    I got my cofirm email..I also ordered it as soon as the att site was avail. Kept hitting refresh for an hour and it popped up and placed the order. So Im sure I got lucky and was within one of the first 1000 people to do it thru att. Only thing is just like the stores..we will get it on the 25..att will ship on the 24th..they will NOT ship prior to release date..
