this could be a good thing though, if they're gunna allow everyone to buy 2 then that may mean they have more iPhones at launch than they originally planned because normally with something like this all you here is LIMIT ONE PER CUSTOMER!

yes, that is what AT&T is doing but I don't think they will have many at all.

Bingo! That's an excellent indication that Apple stores will have a big fat supply of phones.

I had intended to go an AT&T store now I'm going to switch to an Apple store because I need to get a phone for my wife too.

Anyone want to start estimating how many phones each store will get based on this new information?

You also should consider Apple has 164 US stores, ATT has 1800...I am sure the allocations will be similar (50-50, 55-45) just with att stores individual stores will receive supplies based on location.

They are letting people buy 2! Great...now people will buy to sell on eBay....
If Apple is ampley stocked on iPhones, people surely wont want to buy them on eBay. It will be probably be more expensive for the person to do so because the seller will not want to make a personal loss. No one over seas with the right mind would buy one, because a) it wouldn't work, b) by the time it is released in Europe and Asia it will *fingers crossed* hopefully be 3G ready, so an Edge equipt phone would be worthless- AT&T don't even have a UK presense to my knowledge so Edge wouldn't exist? =/ Meh, who knows

Math time...

It has been around the each AT$T store would get 40 phones.
So 40 x 1800 = 72,000. If there are 3 million units at launch then that leaves 2,928,000 for the Apple Stores. 2,928,000/146 = 20,054 per Apple Store. If they hold back half for online that leaves 10027 per store.

So if you get to the Apple store and there are 10,000 people in line, you may still get one.

I thought the very same thing. Now inventories will deplete even faster at Apple stores. Glad that AT&T didn't adopt this policy.

Hope you're right. Here in northern colorado there is only one ATT store. Nearest Apple stores are in Denver. I'm planning to go ATT, but having just one iPhone seller in the area has me somewhat concerned.

Wouldn't it be smart if they made you get back to the end of the line after you purchase 1 iPhone. That way more people get at least one.

Hmm, not sure what to do. I may go to an AT&T store now. I'm thinking there will be less people in line there if they are only allowed to purchase 1.

It looks like Apple has it set up to where you can check the iPhone availability at each Apple store after 9:00 pm the night before. http://www.apple.com/retail/iPhone/

While EDGE (Enhanced Data Rates for GSM Evolution) is primarily North American it is deployed worldwide by other carriers. Rogers uses it in Canada for example. That does NOT mean that iPhone will work as is on other networks though.
