    Availability of the iPhone 4 continues to improve in the United States, with the company's online store now offering shipping estimates of "within 24 hours" for new orders. After spending much of the summer with three-week shipping estimates, supplies of the iPhone 4 began to increase in early October with a move to 5-7 business day shipping estimates. Estimates improved once again to 1-3 business days in recent weeks before making the final move to the minimum possible window today.

    iPhone 4 shipping estimates in many other countries, where the company is typically selling unlocked and/or unsubsidized phones online, are registering with estimates of up to two weeks for new orders.

    good news for those of you who need/want it online, but at a lot of stores there's been a decent amount of physical availability (especially if you go in the beginning of the day to get it)

    Demand is only shrinking because there are no phones available to purchase! (at least here in Spain)

    -Ams.

    Between this post on iPhone availability and the one on a new iPad ad I am having a hard time telling macrumors content from an Apple PR release. I love this site but I could do with a little less fluff. Maybe I am just grumpy.

    I bought a 32GB iP4 last week at a local Apple Store... the two I checked seemed to have plenty of inventory.

    Currently Unavailable

    The Apple Store Honk Kong page used to say the shipping time was 3-5 weeks. It now simply says "Currently Unvavailable"

    Eh, just go to your local Apple store and get it within minutes. Sheesh, Apple stores have been fully stocked for some time now.

    This.

    We just walked into an Apple store and bought three of them a couple weeks ago. Availability was not an issue.

    You'll have to pay sales tax at apple.com anyhow because the company operates brick and mortar stores in most (all?) states, so there's really no advantage to purchasing online that I can see.

    I agree 100%.

    They might as well put up a bar at the top of the macrumors frontpage that show small icons of the products with little green(for stock) & red(no stock) lights underneath if they want us to know this info so bad.
    Besides, how is something I could find out by visiting the apple.com store considered news or a rumors? It's not. It's just availability!

    iPhone demand

    The media has everyone convinced that an iPhone for Verizon is coming early next year. I think a lot of people will hold off on buying, and this quarter's domestic sales of the iPhone may disappoint investors.

    Surely you jest.

    Foxconn is manufacturing 137,000 iPhones a day. The demand is there, and Foxconn is finally getting caught up to demand.

    iphone 5 is supposed to have an Apple proprietary Multi SIM card which works on almost all carriers.

    Apple then buys airtime for you and when you use your phone Apple sends you the bill as if they were the cellular company.

    You buy the phone through Apple and pick your provider or just stay with Apple.

    They'll also figure out a way to get their hand into the NFC honeypot for clearing payments.

    All in development already with a Dutch company called Gemalto.

    Will be interesting to see if the cellular providers then still try to get you to sign contracts or you can have pay as you go:)

    When you buy online and the vendor collects no sales tax, you still owe Use Tax. I know most of the time that doesn't get paid, but I'm just sayin :)
