AT&T resumes online iPhone sales in NY
It's once again safe to order an iPhone through AT&T's Web site if you live in New York, after an unexplained halt was enforced in the area over the weekend.
AT&T has resumed selling iPhones through its Web site to New York City customers, with no indication as to what prompted the halt.
Over the holiday weekend,through AT&T's Web site were left out in the cold. Making matters worse, explanations ranged from network congestion problems to online fraud to this fine example of corporate-speak: "We periodically modify our promotions and distribution channels."
But at some point on Monday, sales could once again be processed for New York City ZIP codes through AT&T's site. An AT&T representative did not immediately respond to a request for clarification on what knocked out online iPhone sales for Gothamites.
