    So did anyone else get this out of stock email? I got it about an hour ago:

    I ordered at around 4:30am EST this morning. Odd, since both of those phones show available on Sprint's website as of this posting. The only one showing Sold Out is the 4S 16gb both colors.

    I called Sprint (I'm a new customer) and they told me to expect my phone to be shipped withing 3 to 8 business days. WHAT?! I tried to ask more question but they just kept spouting 3 to 8 days over and over. Anyone else get a Sold Out email?

    It's been posted on the Sprint forums, general consensus is that it was an error generated, because people were preordering and the item isn't actually in stock.

    I never got one period except how to set up my new account. But I got a 16 black 4gs and it says the 14th or 15th when i track it. So who knows. I won't be waiting, I do know that.

    I order at 12:34am pst and got that email as well. But I talk to a rep and he told me my item was in the warehouse, in the final stages of processing. :confused: dunno what's going on..

    I would have loved too, except Apple isn't selling a Sprint phone for new users, just existing users. *shrug*

    It seems like almost no one could order a Sprint iPhone from Apple. Only current customers on a non-family, non-business, non-promotional plan were able to verify eligibility on Apple's site.

    I didn't know there was anyone that fit into the "non-family, non-business, non-promotional plan" category? lol
