By the end of the weekend all iPhones will be sold out. According to Bloomberg.com

[...] Shoppers snapped up as many as 200,000 iPhones the first day after the device went on sale June 29, according to Global Equities Research. While it was still available at all 164 Apple stores yesterday, AT&T said most of its 1,800 stores no longer had the phone in stock. AT&T is the only mobile-phone service that works with the iPhone.

[...] Apple stores sold an estimated 128,000 iPhones on the first day, while AT&T stores sold 72,000, said Trip Chowdhry, an analyst with San Francisco-based Global Equities.

[...] The iPhone is already selling at a premium on the auction site EBay Inc., despite it still being in stock at Apple’s stores. The phone has sold on EBay for an average of $978.75, the company said.

Engadget has a cool chart where that allows to check availablity on various Apple stores.

AT&T, or ATTCW as I referred to it in my previous post, admits to have troubles with activation. I am still wating to have a confirmation email for my iPhone activation :( . More than 100 angry customers who have been waiting to have their iPhones to be activated for more than 24 hours have posted a message on AT&T customer support forum aka customer screaming forum.
