If you’re one of the many that were not successful pre-ordering your iPad today because of all the AT&T fiasco, then their might be some light at the end of the tunnel.
It’s official, AT&T is sold out of iPhone 4 pre-orders for the launch day. Your only hope is now Apple. At the time I am writing this, Apple’s website is still crashing when trying to pre-order an iPhone 4.
From my personal experience, if you want to get to pre-order the iPhone 4, your best way is to go through the Apple Store application that was released this morning. You won’t be able to per-order to get your iPhone delivered, however you will be able to reserve your iPhone 4 for pickup.
I just went through the process again and I was able to reserve another iPhone 4 (which I’m going to cancel right away). Be careful though, reserving an iPhone doesn’t guarantee that you will be able to get one.
Per Apple’s own words: “Pre-authorization does not guarantee iPhone availability at an Apple Retail Store. iPhone is sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Your reservation is valid for pickup only at the Apple Retail Store that you selected. If you do not collect your selected item(s) by the designated date and time, your reservation will be canceled.”
Good luck, and let us know how it goes.
