AT&T has “temporarily suspended” pre-orders of the iPhone 4, while a report indicates that the company is dealing with a rash of security problems. Gizmodo reports that a number of customers are logging into AT&T’s system online only to discover that their account has supposedly been populated by another customers’ information. The problems are affecting both AT&T and Apple, since the latter relies on AT&T to provide the customer’s account information, and have resulted in people receiving notifications for iPhones they didn’t order, and sometimes being charged for the item in the process. While AT&T has completely stopped taking pre-orders for the time being, displaying a “temporarily suspended” message when users attempt to hit the pre-order button, Apple appears to still be accepting pre-orders online; both companies have already sold out of their launch day allotments.
