If customers aren't on fire after todays iPhone 4 pre-ordering fiasco this just might light them up. Gizmodo is reporting that todays "iPhonecalypse" is due to what an AT&T insider says was caused by "a major fraud update that went wrong. " The result: exposure of an unknown number of users' private AT&T information.
We feel like we are at a baseball game and the score is AT&T four, and the rest of us, a big fat zero. We are four for four in failed iPhone launches with AT&T appearing to be the one to blame once again. The day started off badly and it doesn't look like things are going to get better any time soon as iPhone 4 customers continue to complain about not being able to pre-order Apple's latest iPhone.
Some days, it just doesn’t pay to live in the United States. Take today, for instance, as Apple begins taking pre-orders for the iPhone 4 both here in the U.S. and in a handful of international locations, including the United Kingdom. While we’re SIM-locked to one carrier, the often-controversial AT&T, U.K. iPhone 4 buyers not only have plenty of choices for their carrier, they can even buy a totally unlocked, SIM-free handset, too.
ModMyi reports that it has received an alleged AT&T memo from a source that claims the carrier will only be taking pre-orders for the black iPhone 4 models. The white model will become available "later this summer."
