AT&T Warns of iPhone 3G S Pre-orders DelayBy Partho, Gaea News Network

If you were one of those chosen ones who made pre-order for his/her iPhone last year and didn’t receive it on the launch, you can launch a campaign against the sales delay this time,lol. Well, this time AT&T has set the pre-warning that those making iPhone 3G S pre-orders might not receive their handsets on the launch date. The US carriers have asked the staff to tell customers that the pre-orders due on Saturday the 13th or later will not reach on launch and these mobile sets would reach their destination 7 to 14 days after the order date. Now, if you are not ready to wait there’s another way you can get the next-gen iPhone.
If you have delayed your pre-order and yet you want your iPhone 3G S on the launch date you can queue up at AT&T (or Apple) store until the regular availability begins from 8. a.m. Remember, it’s not 7 a.m the access time earlier announced by Boy Genius. Those who have made the pre-orders will receive an e-mail once the handset is in the stock.
This is an unfortunate event for those who had already invested in the faster, more feature-laden Apple smartphone. Apart from the Apple and AT&T outlets, you can also get the iPhone 3G S from Walmart and Best Buy at regular store hours.
