AT&T canceling confirmed iPhone 4 Pre-Order

Okay seriously, didn’t Apple ever thought that iPhone’s craze would get to such a level that entire universe would go crazy for the iPhone 4? Earlier AT&T stopped receiving pre-orders when it crossed the numpty number — 600,000. Now people who had successfully placed their orders online for the iPhone 4 have started receiving mails from AT&T canceling their order. Look here:

Dear xxxxxxxxxx

Thank you for choosing AT&T.

Unfortunately, we were either unable to verify the information you provided or you have exceeded the number of lines of service that we allow customers to purchase online. As a result, your order has been canceled.

If you would like to purchase additional lines of service, please visit one of our AT&T retail locations and present your identification to our representatives. They will be happy to help you purchase new wireless devices, accessories, and service.

Go to to find a store near you.

We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to serving you.

Thank you.


This might generate anger among iPhone loyalists. This still makes me wonder why did AT&T even accept the pre-orders if they couldn’t fulfill them?
