Now the iPhone 4 pre-orders are sold out, Apple apologizes for the problems many customers experienced trying to place orders.
Yesterday Apple and its carrier partners took pre-orders for more than 600,000 of Apple’s new iPhone 4. It was the largest number of pre-orders Apple has ever taken in a single day and was far higher than we anticipated, resulting in many order and approval system malfunctions. Many customers were turned away or abandoned the process in frustration. We apologize to everyone who encountered difficulties, and hope that they will try again or visit an Apple or carrier store once the iPhone 4 is in stock. » Over 600.000 iPhone 4 Pre-Orders, Apple Says Sorry

There is no information about how much the mobile subscription will cost.

AT&T has made an Ad to convince people that they have the fastest network compared to the network of Verizon. At&T claims they have the fastest 3G speeds. To me the Ad is not convincing at all and it would’ve been better if AT&T spent their money on some new 3G towers. » AT&T iPhone Ad Compares Own 3G Speed With Verizon’s Network
