A frustrated commenter left an AT&T store on Beverly Boulevard empty-handed. "I went to the AT&T store on Beverly and they were already sold out after the store had been open for 15 minutes. They are only being given 110 phones per day. (I was #124 in line.) You would have thought that they'd have more phones given to them on opening day! It's not like people didn't expect the iphone to be a huge hit." [RackedWire]
