Orders for new iPhone stall on Web and in stores

NEW YORK (AP) - Buyers are reporting problems getting their advance orders for the latest iPhone registered.

Wednesday, the first day Apple and AT&T started taking such orders, shoppers said they were met with error messages on the company Web sites and lines formed in stores as clerks tried to get orders through the computer systems.

Computer systems at Apple, the maker of the phone, or AT&T, its exclusive U.S. carrier, have had various problems meeting demand for the iPhone every year since the first one launched, in 2007.

The iPhone 4 goes on sale June 24 starting at $199.
