This can only happens during sales time at hypermarket such as Carrefour or Giant -limiting customers’ purchases. It appeared Apple Inc (Nasdaq: AAPL, stock) has ceased the production of the popular 8GB and 16GB iPhone models ahead of the earlier speculated new version that supports 3G networks. Therefore customers are allowed to purchase only one of the handsets until further notice. AppleInsider got hold of the memo issued by AT&T Inc. dated May 14th 2008 which mentioned the new policy to its internal department.

AT&T further said all requests to purchase more than one of the touch-screen handsets must be approved by a director or general manager, adding that cash and checks will no longer be 3G iPhoneaccepted. Thus customers may only use credit or debit cards to purchase their iPhone. To make things worse, both of Apple’s online stores in the US and UK stopped accepting new iPhone orders.

On Wednesday, AT&T said it plans to boost the speed of its 3G wireless network to 20 megabits per second in 2009, paving the way for over-the-air downloads that are more than five times faster than what customers can achieve today. The company said engineers already have a version of AT&T’s HSPA (High Speed Packet Access) 3G network up and running in the labs at speeds of 7.2 megabits per second. This iPhone gadget is getting more powerful and could be easily the top must-have gadget for consumers.
