    According to Cult of Mac, AT&T have sold out of the black iPhone 4 and only offer refurbished models on their website. The white model is unaffected.

    I know people have said the new iPhone is coming in September, but this would be one strange coincidence with WWDC around the corner.

    If you try to buy the "white" iphone on the page, you will eventually have the option to purchase a black or white one

    AT&T no longer pushed Apple products like they used to. When they lost their exclusivity the move the iPhone down on the priority. There was no stock at any AT&T store for a long time and they were quick to tell you to go to the Apple store to get one.

    The love affair is over!

    Really what do you base this on???

    I am near an AT&T store and everytime I go in to check out all their phones at least once a week, all I see anyone doing is buying an iPhone 4 in Black or White?

    I talk to the ppl at the counter and although they do have some nice looking Android phones, the majority of the peeps are buying iPhone's. The guy even said older folks are switching to the iPhone but they are buying the 3GS bc of the pricing point $49 bucks is a good price for a good reliable phone.

    and the 3GS is a good reliable phone. I still have mine and wish I could still use it also. Just every time I pick it up I put it back down because the jealous IP4 is calling to me!

    It's still their top selling phone by far. It's also probably their most lucrative based on plans sold. I don't really think they'd push that cashcow down their list of priorities because their egos are bruised. If anything, they probably have invested even more in marketing now that there is competition.

    Wirelessly posted (Opera/9.80 (iPhone; Opera Mini/6.13548/24.871; U; en) Presto/2.5.25 Version/10.54)

    I would love to see them drop the 3GS to free with contract, then the iP4 to either $99 or $49 (the former being more likely). :)

    I disagree. You don't focus your marketing on a single PRODUCT that is the exact same product that your competitor sells... you market your brand or service instead.

    Everyone knows that AT&T has the iPhone. AT&T will be more interested in marketing their services and exclusive features that no one else can offer.

    Is AT&T glad to sell you a $90/month iphone? Yes. are they any more excited about selling an iphone over a $90/month Atrix or Desire? Probably not.

    I click on the iPhone4 and I can choose white or black.

    What's the issue?

    Just some site trying to make "news".
