    Apple, AT&T, Verizon sell out launch day iPhone 4S preorders

    Less than a day after it first went up for preorder, the iPhone 4S has sold out of its launch day stock at the US online Apple Store. New orders for AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon models now won't ship for at least one to two weeks. Apple had already been seeing international unlocked sale delays but hadn't touched the US directly until now....

    All of them sold out of the 16GB models including Sprint. As of a few minutes ago, all of them still have 32 GB models available. Verizon did not have the 64 GB model listed online when I checked.

    Wow, for all of it's negative drama the phone was getting. It was a bit surprising that it was still the biggest iPhone lunch as far as says. Even on the individual carrier such as AT&T.

    AT&T Sold more pre-orders of the iPhone 4s in 12 hours then it did the entire day of the iPhone4.

    I think those people who complained seriously over-exagerated what they should really expect. What they should have expected is an "S" model to follow the past 3GS. With that said, I was expecting to sell them out to begin with, and even more so with the passing of S.J...unfortunately.

    After looking over Sprint's price schedule for the iPhone and minutes plan, one would have to be a die hard Sprint user to sign a two year contract with them.

    But it looks like the iPhone has given them new life - for the time being anyway.

    They are the most expensive out of the three. >_>" I'm guessing cause of the unlimited data plan.

    How'd you come up with that? It's the cheapest full plan, and also has unlimited. What's wrong with it?

    That's the most inaccurate crap ever! Look at Apple's own site...they actually have the same plan coverage you a person would sign up with when someone purchases an iPhone, not a view on individual option prices bundled up.

    200,000 at&t preorders in 12 hrs!
    Just reported from engadget 200,000 at&t iPhone 4s preorders within the first 12 hrs. the most of any iPhone release.

    and people said the public will be disappointed. why change what is already the best built exterior in mobilephonedom.

    I was looking at the samsung s2, what a P.O.S. plus, its the size of a tablet.

    thanks apple for building the best performing, best looking products!

    I just went through the selection process this morning on all three sites. Sprint was without a doubt the highest priced of the three. Once you put the iPhone in your cart there, that $79.99 plan disappeared from the options and the minimum price option was the $99.99 plan.

    And since i still have unlimited data at AT&T, at $70 a month, Sprint is out of the picture.
    The lowest price point at Verizon was also $70, but with only 2GB data.
    So, it looks like I'm still home with AT&T.

    +1. A call to Sprint will verify what bobtomay stated above. Initially I thought it would be the least expensive since they're desperate for business. Looks like they're not desperate enough. I'm not a Ma Bell fan, (having had them for many years) but it looks like they still may be the best deal.

    Well, yeah, mine is cheaper too since I still have the grandfathered unlimited data. And since we have a family plan with 4 phones, I'm technically only paying 10 for the line, and 30 for the data. Still cheap for me not to want to move.

    Wow, I never realized so many people hated Sprint enough to blatantly lie on internet forums.

    Sprint, 450 mins, unlimited text, unlimited data = $80
    ATT, 450 mins, unlimited text, 2GB data = $85
    Verizon, 450 mins, unlimited text, 2GB data = $90

    Not everyone needs unlimited text or wants to pay for texting. >_>"
