Apple and Verizon Wireless Cease Taking iPhone Orders

Article Comments  30

Both Apple and Verizon Wireless have stopped accepting new pre-orders for the iPhone 4. It was available starting at 3 AM eastern time on February 3. Neither said when they might begin accepting orders again. "This was an exciting day," said Dan Mead, president and chief executive officer for Verizon Wireless. "In just our first two hours, we had already sold more phones than any first day launch in our history. And, when you consider these initial orders were placed between the hours of 3 a.m. and 5 a.m., it is an incredible success story. It is gratifying to know that our customers responded so enthusiastically to this exclusive offer --- designed to reward them for their loyalty."

I imagine there are a lot of frustrated customers calling into Verizon right now trying to get pre-order options.

On the flip side, looking at how many CDMA phones analysts at Apple state they're going to sell this year, I have to wonder how many were actually sold. A 7 day pre order availability gone down in 1 day sound like they got a lot more orders than expected...

Good news Apple critics! You were right!

Nobody cares about the iPhone anymore, it's old, outdated and no longer a viable option for anyone!

Er... wait, did you say they sold out of pre-orders in 2 hours at 3AM on a thursday morning???


Never mind, maybe the iPhone 5 will be the outdated and undesirable option you're all looking for.

Nothing better than hoping someone else fails for no reason at all!
Actually they didn't sell out of preorders in 2 hours. They sold the most units that they ever have in those 2 hours.

Also, the critics of Apple's iPhone point out the flaws in the device itself. What they ignored or underestimated is how good mar...
I may attract negative comments for this post but I must say what I believe.

Critics were not so much dismissing the device as much as the consumers that have been consistantly running to the product without hesitation. If not for the supporters p...

Can't believe

that people are so damn fascinated about a device that is already outdated by most of the features and standards... People, grow up and grow the ****ing brains. There are much better devices out there.
Slow your role. Smile

I'm excited about the network. I've been in ATT he(( for far too long.

Besides...."better" means different things to different people.

Why are you driving a POS Yugo....there are better cars out there!!

Why are you driv...
