Wow oh oh. This is probably the most exciting news of the day, even though it doesn’t look like much on the surface. If you look at AT&T’s website right now, you’ll see that they are running out of black iPhone 4s.

They do have the white iPhone 4, and they even have refurbished black iPhone 4, but no new ones. What can that possibly mean? Maybe a new iPhone 5 coming out real soon?

We’ve seen conflicting reports lately about the iPhone 5. Some say it’s coming out in June, some say in September, and some even say next year. At this point, it’s safe to say that no one has a clue what’s really going on, but like most of you, I sure hope a new iPhone 5 is going to be unveiled next week at the WWDC, even if it’s just a slightly modified version of the iPhone 4 – hello iPhone 4S.

So, AT&T running out of black iPhone 4, is it a coincidence or a sign that the iPhone 5 is right around the corner? Your thoughts?

    if the iPhone 5 is just merely design change… then i may hang on to my iPhone 4 with iOS 5 thank you.

  • SRchazzie

    They might want to push out the white iPhone because the black had been out for so long.

    I hope it’s a sign that iPhone 5 or 4S is around the corner.

    I hope it’s a sign that iPhone 5 or 4S or whatever is right around the corner.

    Wasn’t there an explosion at one of the factories that makes the iPhones and wouldn’t that be the reason that they are running out of iPhones. Or was an iPad factory I can’t remember.

    Hey I just went to AT&T.com and at the first screen you cant see a black one but it just says iPhone 4 and even though it shows a white one after you click it you can select “black”. I went all the way through until I had to enter my card and it didn’t say anything about not being able to order it. Try it yourself.

      Wow…looks like a #fail to me.

  • Johnny

    Just ordered one -___-

    You mofo sebastien you got way too much time on your hands bro. I just flushed my i4 down the toilet to get ready to buy the next one.

  • Dick Fontaine

    Yeah, like a couple of the others I have said I don’t see any indication that AT&T is “running out” of the black iPhone 4

    HAHAHAHA GENIUS!!!

    “You mofo sebastien you got way too much time on your hands bro. I just flushed my i4 down the toilet to get ready to buy the next one.”

    Don’t worry, Sebastien. I’m sure that guy loves you deep inside. Definitely an iDB regular. Hahaha “you mofo,” that just sounded so funny!!!

    • Yeah, we’ve had more and more insulting and almost retarded comments lately. I’m not a big fan of insults, even if it’s in a good way. The commenting system on iDB will definitely get revamped sooner than later to avoid poor comments to show on the site, and have helpful or insightful ones show up.

      Up until a few weeks ago, I had no idea people could be so cruel against bloggers like me.

    Good to know you’ll revamp the commenting system. Thanks for giving us the best iphone blog!

    I am uncertain how I experience this change. In ways it’s cool that each of them have their particular names, but it also breaks the system collection by its siblings (Twilight, Harry Potter, Starvation Games) who kept the names of these last books unchanged and just marked them aside 1 & Part 2.
