iPhone sales reported to be a dissapointment

At 146,000 units activated, Wall Street is calling iPhone sales a dissapointed. I think that it can be seen both ways, but it is clear that iPhone hysteria has worn off and units are not moving as well as in the beginning. Does anyone think this could mean iPhone price cuts in the near future to drive lagging sales?

146,000 is not much at all for a phone that was hyped to the point of hysteria for 6 months. If there isn't a massive price cut and I mean massive, this phone could be one of the biggest failures ever. The thing is I can't remember Apple having a price cut on anything ever.

It's decent, considering that 146000 figure only covers from the first few days of sales.

I'de also like to see the numbers on how many were returned in the first 30 days. Lots of people like to buy what's new and after they get tired of it return it and wait for the next new thing. I've done that myself a few times but not with this one.

This is kinda a stupid stat... it only covers the first 30 hours of the phone being on sale! 6 hours Friday night and 24 hours Saturday. Who knows when someone may have decided to activate their phone. If they decided to wait until Sunday to activate their service then they weren't included in this number.

Also the rumor is that AT&T is paying Apple between $150 - $200 for phone activation and an additional $9 per month. Until this burden is relieved, don't count on any discounts from AT&T.

I read in Yahoo News that there is a conflict between what Apple says about the amount of units sold and the amount of units reported activated by ATT. The difference is huge!

People who bought the phone to sell on Ebay couldn't give them away and I hope every single idiot that did that got stuck with them!

As for myself I took the phone back and cancelled the service. I still had my Verizon account and decided to buy an HTC XV 6700, it was everything the Iphone wasn't except for one thing and it wasn't the phone. It was Verizon's plan, HOLY CRAP BATMAN!

In order to have everything you want, phone service, unlimited data and instant messaging the cheapest plan was $99.00. WHAT! So what I did was to keep my plan I was on and sole...

Well I found some of the missing Iphones and I can't believe where! This past weekend our family decided to hit all the major boardwalks at the Jersey Shore. Just about every arcade at each boardwalk had Iphones as prizes.

So then I wondered how many of these phones are at arcades at boardwalks, Six Flags, and other venues where they offer prizes, this might partialy explain why the sales figures and the activation figures are so far apart.

But it has to make you wonder, if the Iphone is selling like hotcakes, where did all these venues get these impossible phones to obtain?

UPDATE: Today I went to two malls, both had Cingular and ATT stores and both had Iphones, At one of the stores one of my friends friend works there, I asked him how the Iphones were selling, he said they weren't after the initial run on them, he said he couldn't give them away if he wanted to and had more than forty in stock.

At the second store it took me a little longer to get the story out of that salesman cause I didn't know this guy, but after awhile he admitted just about the same thing as the other guy. Sales are very very slow and they had a ton in stock.

Maybe they should sell them to the guys at the Boardwalks. LOL
