  • 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.

      Yah... and they'll both be long lines.
      I'm just happy there will be 2 lines

      I also ordered thru AT&T. I received an email from AT&T at 4:33am CST confirming my order with a link to track my order. The order has been received, and is processing....Nobody else that ordered with AT&T get this email??? They took my $$$ too, them bishes

      I ordered my iphone 4 from the AT&T premier site yesterday morning around 5am without any problems. I received and email stating that my order was recieved and that they will begin fulfilling the orders on the 24th. There was also an order number in the email. I checked my account and the money had been taken out. I checked the status of my order last night and it says that it was on back order and I will receive and email when the order is shipped. Did anyone else who ordered their phone from the AT&T premier site have a order status that says that their phone is on backorder as well?

      I looked at my email confirmation and realized that my shipping address was my old one. I quickly called apple. They were really nice. She told that she could change my old address to the new one and change my shipping address from my home to my office. OMG I will get to work early and will not leave til my phone arrives. Does any know if it will come ups or fedex.

      I ordered it from the premier site as well, and I got the email, but I havent been charged yet though. (i used discover would that make a difference?) but It doesnt say its on back order either...

      For those of you that went into ATT stores yesterday to pre order, you might wanna call and check if ur order has been processed yet. Since their systems crashed, all orders were taken manually. So even if you went in yesterday, ur order might not have been processed till today thus ur i4 wont arrive till july 2nd....

      Question?
      Is the amount of iPhone 4's preordered going to reduce the availability on the 24th in retail stores? Alos any word on what time Walmart will begin sales? I hope at 12:01. Thanks

      Apple probably sets aside a certain amount for the retail stores regardless of online pre-sales. For those buying at Walmart or Best Buy, my advice is to get there as early as possible. I read a BB internal memo last night that doesn't guarantee the amount of phones each store will get, and employees are not to make any promises for the 24th. So they could get 5 or 500.

      My question is how the Apple Store "reservations" work. Will the Apple stores really set these aside for customers when there is an angry crowd outside? Do they release them after a certain time if you don't pick them up? I'm wondering how this is all gonna go down on the 24th.

      i hope they set them aside, my confirmation email states that if i don't pick it up on the 24th, i lose it...

      I ended up pre-ordering mine via AT&T website at 1:15pm EST.
      I checked my order, it has been received and its current status is processing.

      Nothing about back order.
      Sorry
