  • iPhone 4 Buyers Getting Shipment Status Updates



    After what has, at times, felt like day after day of negative news, there's finally a morsel of positive information to report this weekend. Amidst a barrage of headlines chronicling the supply shortfalls, security failures, and preorder meltdowns that have plagued Apple, AT&T, and the iPhone 4 itself, we can now point to a sign of progress.

    Beginning Friday and into the early morning hours of Saturday, many iPhone 4 buyers began to see a change in the shipment status of their orders. These individuals, however, were among the first to successfully have their preorders placed (and not subsequently rejected or voided) on June 15th just as preorders began being accepted.

    The iPhone 4 customers we're hearing from have seen their order status change from from "Not Yet Shipped" to "Prepared for Shipment." This comes as an overwhelmingly positive sign to many iPhone 4 buyers who had begun worrying if June 24th would still bring with it the delivery of their long-awaited iPhone 4. As it stands, June 24th remains the official launch day with only some folks likely to receive their devices late - as in the 25th. It is widely expected that those who preordered latest on June 15th could see their deliveries come one day after the formal product roll out.

    As reported earlier on MMi, last Tuesday's preorder kick-off saw initial iPhone 4 sales that were 10 times higher than the first day of preordering for the iPhone 3GS last year. On June 15th alone, better than 600,000 iPhone 4s were preordered.

      Any chance the ATT orders have to go to an ATT hub somewhere first before being sent to us... Maybe that is why we they don't have tracking numbers yet.

      Also, I wonder if I make a genius bar appointment for 7/24 and bring in my 16gb unopened, if Apple will switch it to a 32gb (assuming there is stock).

      Scratch that, no genius bar appointments on the 24th!

      I have a question for you guys. I ordered through apples site and when I printed my order page it says delivers on june 24th but my conformation email says ships july 2nd. I checked my order last night and it says prepared for shipment. Do you guys think I will get my iphone on the 24th or after the 2nd? I'm planning on taking the day off but I don't know what day to take off. Let me know your thoughts thanks in advance.

      AT&T UPDATE

      I haven't had anything money wise pending on my account since the day after the preorder (which was on the 15th). As of today, the full amount of the phone is pending!!!!! Looks like they're getting ready to take out tomorrow !!!!

      The one phone I ordered from apple went from not yet shipped to prepared to ship last night before the update. Now it says not yet shipped again, tried fedex package status page and nothing. Bad luck all around for me ATT canceled two phones without reason and now this.

      I noticed that your deliver by date is 6/23 just like the notification that I received. Does this mean that it will be delivered Wednesday?

      Why would you want to take the day off? If you are concerning about not receiving the shipment, you can go to apple store website and change shipping address to your work or wherever you would be.
