iPhone 4S Preorder, Sold out?

US carriers are reported to have sold out preorders of Apples’s iPhone 4S one day before the device goes on sale.

AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint's online stores are said to have sold out iPhone 4S preorders, yet Verizon and Sprint were listed with "no immediate stock" of the entry-level 16GB model according to Bloomberg.

A quick check on the carrier sites tells a different story: people can still pre-order most models of Apple's new iPhone, but there's no longer the guarantee they'll get it by tomorrow, something that's been the case for most of this week.

The iPhone 4S goes on sale in the U.S., Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, and the U.K at 8 a.m. local time tomorrow morning. Earlier this week Apple said it sold more than 1 million preorders for the device within the first 24 hours of it going up for sale, the most preorders the company had ever received for a product.
