  • AT&T - iPhone 4 Shipping in "2-3 Weeks"


    Following up on yesterday seeing Apple change delivery dates on the pre-orders to July 2 (from June 24 - hope you were able to get through!), AT&T is now showing only that the devices are on backorder, and will deliver in "2-3 weeks."

    UPDATE 9:50: I should specify, this is for orders GOING FORWARD. The pre-orders for the 24th delivery will still be on the schedule they outlined yesterday (which is the 24th mostly, with some people who ordered later in the day possibly not getting the phone til the 25th).

    UPDATE 2 9:59 AM - This may not be accurate. Says one AT&T employee:


    ...that 2 - 3 weeks shipping message was being displayed yesterday during preorder 1 as well, it is just the way AT&T's system work[s], since technically they never had iPhone 4's in stock. They outline this message in their internal employee documents explaining it. This is not because they ran out of iPhone 4 pre orders, customers should still expect at this point to receive their phones from June 25th - July 2nd.
    We mentioned yesterday AT&T had said "As of Tuesday afternoon, customers who preorder iPhone 4 moving forward will receive their device on June 25 or later, depending on when the order is placed." Looks like those orders are going to be more towards Apple's July 2nd date (which makes sense - that's most likely when the next shipment of devices will be coming from the factory) now.

    As a side note - remember this?
    possible famous last words: "meh, I'll pre order it tomorrow. they won't sell out in one day of pre orders."
    Good thing I decided to keep pressing yesterday and got a few. Bring on the iPhone 4.

      This is what I said last year when the 3GS came out. I'm glad I waited.

      I see the prices w/o commitment above! Does it mean we'll be able to buy it w/o contract?

      Thanks!

      P.S
      When u preordered it, did u have contract or you preordered the ones w/o contract?

      You're looking forward to camping out and fighting to claim a phone? lol, should have gotten delivery.

      Not sure where you're getting that information. I ordered through AT&T (business/premier) and got an email confirmation with a "Reference Web Order Number" to track order status within 10 minutes of order.

      Let me guess, you're not eligible for an iphone 4 so you've convinced yourself that the 3gs is cool for now? lol

      Will there be two lines on the 24th at the Apple stores; one for the reservations and one for the walk ins.? Apple site now says you can go to the store and get one on the 24th.

      This sucks. AT&T said they were unable to verify my funds on my CC. I guarantee it has more than enough that they need to charge. Don't tell me its some BS to postpone my order. My apple preorder went flawlessly on the same CC.

Like my 3g was and intal release that has the 5.8 loader but then they changed that.
      Given that the phone hasn't even been released, much less jailbroken, I am fairly sure they will not be patching jailbreaks and bootloaders in between shipments.

BUT i will say this, i will NOT be like most people and start to call at&t and complain that i didnt get it on the 24th. We will get our phones when we get them, we need to let at&t and apple do their thing, we pre ordered, that it theres nothing we can do but wait.,
      Do you have an order number? If not, then you may not have an active order in the system

      Not true. I got one within 15 min of placing the order with AT&T

      each store gets a certain amount of phones, obviously pre orders will be saved for you to pick up, the rest of the phones are first come first serve and most likely they wont have any to put onto the shelves for sale being that pre orders sold out yesturday

      If you made your order with ATT, you can verify your order status here. You can see if it is canceled, back in order, or in progress, even the tracking number when available... check here:
