    Came across a interesting article

    AT&T has apparently found a workable solution to the reported data congestion in New York City. They’ve quietly stopped selling the iPhone to customers in the New York metropolitan area, at least from their web site.

    I guess that’s one way to solve the problem.

    Reader Stephen in Brooklyn made the discovery while shopping for a new phone today.

    “I was on the AT&T Wireless website trying to get an iPhone. However, when I put in my zip code 11231, the site says the iPhone is unavailable. This seemed a little odd so I started punching in other famous zip codes: 90210, 60609 (spiegel catalog), 02134 (zoom, an old children’s show).

    For theses cities, LA, Chicago, Boston, iPhone is available. Then I looked up some other zip codes: Dallas, Miami, St. Louis, Philadelphia, San Francisco. All those cities are ok. Then I started putting in more NYC zip codes: midtown, Staten Island, the Bronx…no iPhone available.

    This is weird…AT&T has cut off New York City.”

    A lot. If someone has a scheme going on when ordering, they may just be doing it so they would have to go in the store or call in (where the call may be recorded), rather than ordering online. They can always deny something wasn't them online.

    I heard the Iphone is not available in NYC because AT&T is having issues with towers or not enough towers and they have major data problems.

    It's not available right now ordering it online. But you can walk into any AT&T
    store or Apple store in NYC and can walk out with a brand new iPhone.
