NEW YORK – Buyers are reporting problems getting their orders for the latest iPhone registered.
On Tuesday, the first day Apple and AT&T started taking such orders, shoppers said they were met with error messages on the company Web sites. Lines formed in stores as clerks tried to get orders through the computer systems.
Computer systems at Apple Inc., the maker of the phone, or AT&T Inc., its exclusive U.S. carrier, have had various problems meeting demand for the iPhone every year since the first one launched, in 2007.
Neither Apple nor AT&T commented on the latest problems. The iPhone 4 goes on sale June 24 starting at $199.
