Following the mass pre-ordering rush that took place earlier this week, both Apple and AT&T have apparently started cancelling pre-orders for the upcoming iPhone 4.
Nothing has been made official yet, but some customers who had pre-ordered, hoping to open up a shiny new iPhone 4 on Thursday have instead received this unsavoury email in their inbox:
We were unable to complete the authorization process for your iPhone order. As a result, we had to cancel your iPhone order. To complete the purchase of your iPhone, please visit an Apple Retail Store or an AT&T company-owned retail store.
We apologize for this inconvenience.
