iPhone 4 Preorders Canceled

Check Your Email: Has Your iPhone 4 Preorder Been Canceled?

It seems that the iPhone 4 preorder fiasco continues into the weekend: there have been reports that both AT&T and Apple have been canceling iPhone 4 preorders, and alerting customers via email. Some cancellation notices state that their authorizations couldn't be processed, while others simply say "Your iPhone 4 preorder has been canceled," end of story. Additionally, some Best Buy locations that weren't made aware of the white iPhone 4 delay have been rescinding those reservations as well. Obviously, there are no white iPhone 4s to reserve just yet.

While AT&T has stated previously that it is canceling orders made in error during the system outage on Tuesday, it seems that some reservations are being canceled for reasons unknown. My advice? Walk into the Apple or AT&T store where you reserved your iPhone 4 and double-check that your preorder stands — I did just that earlier today, and can sleep well knowing that my order is legit and on the books. Let us know — has your iPhone 4 preorder been canceled?

I didn't pre-order - I reserved and so far everything is cool. It is funny reading the meltdown comments on various websites.

I actually got a shipment notification from the Apple Store today for my preorder.

Luckily I have not received notice of the cancelation... I do, however, have nightmares, literally every night, about getting to the Apple store and not being able to get my phone. These things never happen to me. I've never been THIS excited about buying something or had nightmares about it before. It's horrible... I just want it to be next weekend so I already have it and be at home wasting time with it....

Do you mean preorder or reservation? There have been instances of both being cancelled, although handful of the preorder cancellations seem to be because people were late paying their phone bills by a day or two. The Macrumors forums are fun to watch - a bunch of people are filled with glee because they just got shipping notices.
