With the iPhone 4 launch looming, ATT issued a statement on the availability of the iPhone 4 on and around the launch day. Essentially they will have enough inventory to fulfill the pre-orders from June 15, and other customers will need to wait until June 29, next Tuesday.
Here is the statement:
ATT is on-track to deliver iPhone 4 to customers who preordered the device on June 15. We look forward to offering iPhone 4 to all other customers beginning Tuesday, June 29, when it goes on sale in all AT&T sales channels.
Here are a few guidelines for customers buying iPhone 4 from AT&T:
* Preordered for home or business delivery: iPhone 4 will begin arriving this week for customers who preordered. We'll send an email when each order has shipped.
* Preordered for store delivery: AT&T retail representatives will begin calling customers this week to let them know their iPhone 4 is available for pick up in store.
* Retail purchase (no preorder): AT&T plans to have iPhone 4 inventory ? available on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last ? on June 29 in its retail locations, at www.att.com, and in business sales channels. As inventory sells out, AT&T will offer the convenient option of purchasing iPhone 4 and having it delivered to a home or business or an AT&T store. As always, customers will receive an email once their order is placed, and again when it ships.
