Oopsie iPhone

I mentioned those folks waiting in line for days to be the first to get the iPhone from Apple.

Well, it looks like some of them get to wait some more.

Seems the fine people over at AT&T are going with the "demand was higher than expected" routine,(read more) to explain why so many new iPhone customers had to wait hours, or in some cases, days, to get the phones activated.

Of course, if AT&T had checked with Apple to see how many of the new toys they were planning to sell, they could have known what to expect. But who worries about such minor details, right?

Did anyone here buy one yet? If so, what happened?



  1. All I can say is I avoid AT&T like the plague. I would nominate their customer service as the worst EVER. This was about on par for them, in my opinion.

  2. My friend was going to get one of those phones...and then thought better of it and put the $ somewhere else.

    My vote for WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER is Veriz*n. I had them years ago and they BLEW like crazy.

  3. Ugh, now I'm really afraid. Our phone & internet was switched to AT&T recently.

    I must live in a cave. Didn't hear much about the iPhones coming out and bought an iPod a few weeks ago.

    Love that so far. But as w/your DVR, I'm just waiting for something to go wrong - too good to be true! :)


I love comments. I won't lie about that!
