Here's Why You Should Get the iPhone 7 Plus but Not the iPhone 7

iPhone 4 Preorder Details

iPhone 4 Preorders Are Getting Messy

Well, it seems that not even the powers of Safari can help me preorder an iPhone 4. Although I was hoping to reserve a white 32GB version today, I figured that since they aren't available to order yet, I might as well go with black. It's neutral — it goes with everything! However, instead of feeling the excited rush after clicking "Process," I got this message after selecting my model, entering in my information, and clicking on the "Check Availability" icon.

I'm not the only one running into problems with getting my preorder on — AT&T's internal system went down this morning, and there have been insane preorder lines in Japan. Your best bet to processing your preorder may be to head into an Apple Store today and deal with them directly. However, you could give a few third-party retailers a shot as well.

@suziryder - If they came in ipod nano colors, that would be awesome :D

I think the folks who want a white one should wait for a white one!! You'd rather have a black phone that you don't completely like for TWO YEARS rather than waiting a month or so for the phone you do want? I'm still trying to decide if I want the white one or the black one. I wish they came in the iPod Nano colors!

I'm holding out for the white one as well. I know if I ordered the black, I would want the white the minute it comes out.

I stayed up till midnight last night in a futile attempt to order my iPhone 4. I was already let down thatthe store did not go live Right at 12:00, but to add insult to injury, there was no white! I loooove white! So I was willing to suck it up and just order the black and it was a no go. I've been trying since the store went live... It is now 12:16 my time so or like 10-11 hours with no luck. Sad sad sad! I just hope the end up allowing white pre orders!

I'm super disappointed about the white model too. I've been trying Apple's website all day. The nearest Apple store is 45 minutes away so it looks like I'm off to the nearest AT&T store after work! (The AT&T website didn't give me the option to pre-order, even though I'm qualified. Boo!)

Apple is breaking my heart with the unavailability of the white model. On the bright side, hopefully a bit of the mad rush will have died down by the time it IS available.

I just tried the Apple Store app on the iPhone and it worked, but I ended up canceling the pre-order since my heart was telling me to wait for the white one!

You can reserve one at a store using the iPhone store app (if it's still working). I'm still trying to preorder via the website though because I don't want to wait in line to get it. I started at 8:30am, been trying off and on all day, no luck.
