@Optus can't pre-order the Jet Black iPhone. Says that Pre-orders are closed. Are you getting anymore stock?!

Welp, thanks to the number of errors processing my order I’m gonna have to wait until November for my iPhone 7. ___

The preordering process, for which many stayed up late or woke up in the middle of the night, caused a lot of stress also.
think I just lost a year of my life and gained 50 new gray hairs while pre-ordering the iPhone 7

Technology giant Apple Inc. seems to be suffering a technological problem at the preorder opening for its flagship iPhone 7. Hundreds of potential buyers have complained of not being able to order the phone on the company’s Apple Store website after the preorders opened for public at 3:01 a.m. EDT Friday.

Some of those who managed to preorder the phone were also displeased with the shipping date, which was shown as two to three weeks later.
Hey @Apple. Order process kept crashing, now 9/23 delivery! And I started as soon as the app was up! Y'all need to fix this order process!
