AT&T Suspended iPhone 4 Pre-orders!

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010 | Business | by

Wow – too much demand.  I’m sure AT&T thought it would be popular, but did they underestimate it?  I wonder what this means for Apple?  Is the demand that much higher than expected?  Does Apple just want me to write that, and is this just a marketing ploy?

From the WSJ news alert:

AT&T stopped taking advance orders for Apple’s iPhone 4 just one day after orders started, citing inventory issues and unexpectedly high demand. The carrier is suspending the orders “in order to fulfill the orders we’ve already received,” it said in a statement.

The suspension comes a day after a crush of traffic paralyzed AT&T and Apple’s websites on the first day of pre-orders, leaving many unable to reserve the new iPhone ahead of time while some customers inadvertently ended up on others’ account pages.
