iPhone 4 Pre-Orders Wreaking Havoc On Apple Store 285

theappwhisperer was one of a surprisingly large number of people writing in this morning to report that the Apple store is having serious troubles taking pre-orders of the new iPhone 4. People are seeing the error page or just waiting an insanely long time to get pages back. Just imagine trying to do this from an iPhone in a major market!

    Evo looks sweet to me, and it's getting some good reviews.

    Lots of people seem to be fed up with Jobs "walled garden" - crappy iTunes has to be used for everything, no SD card or USB ports, no flash.

    AT&T network is getting slammed all over the place - slow, unreliable, and insecure.

    Agreed. Look I own apple products (including an MBP), but really, WHO CARES IF THE PRE-ORDER IS BROKEN FOR A BIT?! It's not like your going to get it any later if you don't get your pre-order in right now, because no one else is getting in the line either. This isn't news, and OP's run on sentence is really how slashdot reads some times. "Filter out apple stories" you say? But then there is a slim chance I'll miss some real news.

    Oh, its great when you have a solid 3G signal, but even in downtown Chicago that can be a problem. Toss in all the dropped calls and its really not as great as those links suggest. Essentially, those tests, if memory serves, are just data speed tests. I don't think they were done in random spots, but where 3G worked and where they had a solid signal.

    I'm in a similar boat now with Sprint's 4G service. Spotty reception, but crazy speeds. I just rooted my EVO, enabled wireless tethering, and with one bar of 4G I got 2.3mbps. With 2-3bars I get 3-4mbps.

    Right now saying "We're the best 3G" is a little like saying "We're the best horse and buggy company." When is LTE coming out? 2012? If you aren't doing 4G upgrades now then you've already falled behind.

As of next Tuesday, C will be flushed in favor of COBOL. Please update your programs.
