AT&T limits iPhone purchases

AT&T limits iPhone purchases AT&T, the iPhone's US exclusive carrier has announced that it will be limiting sales of the iPhone to customers, meaning only one phone can be purchased at a time.
The move is fueling more rumors that the upcoming 3G iPhone is coming soon and that Apple is low on inventory of the current generation which usually does not happen.

Apple's online store is completely sold out of the device as is UK's exclusive carrier O2.

"Effective immediately, customers can only purchase one iPhone device,"
the online advisory to AT&T store managers read.

If you still want the iPhone however, Apple has begun offering refurbished iPhones at huge discounts. The 8GB and 16GB models will sell for $249 USD and $349 USD respectively, over 30 percent off retail price.

Many are expecting the 3G model to launch in June at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference which recently sold out in anticipation of the launch.

too funny cause my centro avalible on sprint & at&t is $50-$100 it has high speed network, plays music off of what ever side memory card i put in my phone, accesses the www, has a touch screen, can text, runs 3rd party apps & there is no shortage?! i still cant see paying that much for a few extra bells & whistles! My phone crashes less that un hacked iphones also!

I have both Centro & iPhone and even though Centro has more features, something about iPhone that makes me use it more than the Centro
