The iPhone 4 pre-order saga continues. Confidential information has been stolen, wrong billing addresses and wrong shipping addresses, AT&T’s pre-ordering system going down, along with Apple’s. It’s been chaos. Such to a point where the ordering systems mix up your info, so you could pay for an iPhone 4, and it arrives at LaptopMemo HQ’s doorstep! It’s that simple! Whether or not the 600,000 iPhones pre-ordered will arrive at the correct addresses, we don’t know, but we do know that they were purchased.
CUPERTINO, Calif., June 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Yesterday Apple and its carrier partners took pre-orders for more than 600,000 of Apple’s new iPhone 4. It was the largest number of pre-orders Apple has ever taken in a single day and was far higher than we anticipated, resulting in many order and approval system malfunctions. Many customers were turned away or abandoned the process in frustration. We apologize to everyone who encountered difficulties, and hope that they will try again or visit an Apple or carrier store once the iPhone 4 is in stock.
