As of 10:00am Pacific time on Tuesday morning — the first day that the iPhone 4 is available for preorders — a trip to the iPhone order page where you are asked "Are you a new or existing AT&T wireless customer?" — after a long delay watching the progress spinner — results in new and existing customers alike being greeted with a variety of errors after choosing their purchase preference:
