Apple iPhone 4: Radio Shack Stock Shortage – Did you get one?

By Posted 11 Dec 2010, 19:30

Previously we have spoken to you about the stock levels of the iPhone 4 and what a researcher over at the Digitimes, we also spoke to you about Best Buy’s 1 day only sale of the iPhone 3GS. We have heard reports that there were stock level shortages ahead of Radio Shack’s big promotional sale of the iPhone 4 which is today. The intended sale is a reduction of the iPhone 4

The offer is that they will be reducing the price of the Apple iPhone 4 by $50 when you take out a 2 year agreement. The problem they are facing at the moment is they will be putting on a sale without being able to give someone a product. AppleInsider.com’s Neil Hughes has written an article about how they have been contacting different stores which you can view here.

They say in their report that they have been contacting Radio Shack stores and all of them with the exception of 1 had no stock of the device. They also say that the phone is still available online but it will take around 2 days to ship, surely the time may increase though depending on demand as you will still receive the same discount.

We did have a look on the Radio Shack website here and were surprised to not find the offer plastered across the site, a little odd. Bearing all of that in mind we want to know, did you get one? Let us know in the comments below.

    I went to a Radio Shack store here in Oklahoma City to see if they had any iphone 4's available. I had been to Best Buy a couple days before and they were sold out of the 32gb model. The Radio Shack guy said that they had ONE 32 gb phone left, but were sold out of the 16gb models. He said he was suppose to go pick some up later that evening, but he thought they would all be 16gb phones. I guess I lucked out! GOT IPHONE 4!
