    T-Mobile Germany did just issue an apology via Twitter... They do everything possible to improve their servers, but they never had a load like that before! It is not even 4pm here, and so far they have processed ten times more pre-orders than for the 3GS last year!



    Buying stock seems like a good idea

    Do we know what they processed last year?



    This is looking more than the 2M sales many are expecting by the end of the first weekend.

    That's just the thing: it never allowed me to make a data plan choice at all. In fact, on that reservation page, there was a "we couldn't make...." message next to the "Pick your store to get it" panel. Hmm. Well, I seem to at least have a reservation, so either I'll pay the upgrade price (which AT&T claims I'm eligible for) or walk out sad.



    Thanks!

    You might want to try eBay instead...I just sold my 2-year old iPhone 3G 16GB White for $360 on eBay...and my home button didn't even work properly (which was disclosed). Especially if you have the older boot loader (iPhone made before September 2008) which allows people to "unlock" the phone even after updating the OS.

What is pleasantly convient is the ability to start over at any time and the flexibility to re-specify any previously gathered information. ...The only improvement, I can think of, would be to rewrite the whole thing in Flash!



    There needs to be an app for that!



    I downloaded Apple's brand new Apple Store app this morning. Whenever it tries to get my account information from AT&T, it crashes.



    I'm done trying for a while. I'll give it another go this afternoon, this evening or sometime tomorrow.

    "Your request couldn?t be processed.



    We?re sorry, but there was an error processing your request. Please try again later."





    I think i reached the ceiling on crashed attempts.

    First day sales including pre-orders were around 20,000 in 2009, but a lot of people left with empty hands and availability did not really stabilize until September. 20k may not sound much, but hype and queuing are not too popular here... If they manage to move more than 200k on day one, than this is close to a miracle. Sales in France and the UK are normally a lot stronger - so, I guess, if Apple made enough then Europe should move more than a million alone.

    It's stuck on processing my AT&T info as we speak. Gee...imagine...a bottleneck from AT&T.



    UPDATE: Never mind, I have a balance past due, so it doesn't even let me order. hahaha.

    I got to a price once and then it crapped out on me. Usually it goes out at the ATT request

    There is no excuse for this. I hope Apple and AT&T get some muddy press for this. They both deserve it.

    Everyone panic! This is your only chance to get one of these. Not getting one most definitely will bring wretched agony and heartache, but if you succeed, you will be one of the few humans on earth to experience total bliss and ecstasy.



    You may as well kill yourself if you don't get your hands on an iphone 4 absolutely as soon as humanly possible.

    Same here. Several hours, no success. I got really close, al the way to Add to Cart, when it first came back online at 8:30, now its gotten slowly worse and errors every time.

    Yet again,



    Another aspect that AT&T sucks at.



    30 minutes on hold to upgrade only to be told that they can't do it over the phone.



    Hmm, maybe an announcement message before you wait? Nah, too easy....



    Website down.



    Well, it is understandable considering this is the first iphone launch that they have had to deal with so how could they possibly anticipate the demand?

    An iPhone 3G for $360??



    Sucker born everyday I guess.



    No way in heck would I pay that for a 2 year old phone, and a used one at that.



    And not to mention that its woefully outdated now. Heck, you can't even get all of the iOS4 features on it.



    Good for you though.
