AT&T may use 'event blackout' for iPhone 5 in late September

ATT tells staff no vacations in second half Sept

AT&T may have given a direct clue as to the timing of the iPhone 5. A retail staffer claimed Friday that management is asking for an "event blackout," or a freeze on vacations, for the last two weeks of September. The tip to Gizmodom, not lately known for its Apple-related leaks, didn't narrow down the specific date.

Both AT&T and Apple alike are known to use vacation blackouts to make sure they have full staff and have rarely had extended periods of the sort when they weren't connected to iPhone launches. The coordination often includes a buffer zone, both to address sustained high traffic as well as to allow for some flexibility in the release date.

Some room for doubt exists given earlier talk of AT&T preparing for an for mid-August until October but may be factoring in time for training and experience.
