  • 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.

      better yet, has anyone who ordered straight from AT&T and they took the MONEY OUT of your account yet?
      If you order from ATT store, look at your receipt and READ. It says , they are not going to charge your credit card till the iPhone is shipped to you. Another thing READ PEOPLE, once you order on ATT store, you dont really need the confirmation email, your confirmation is your receipt, READ it says "confirmation summary" you are already confirmed, and after that says, YOUR IPHONE IS RESERVED.

      Yes, happened to me..I called AT&T right after i saw that and they told me I was still good to go. It's NOT that they cancelled an order it's just VERIFYING the funds. but I dont know why they even did that if they said they arent charging till it ships. But anyways they said the money will be deducted back out when it ships.

      You should be able to cancel your order and wait in line EARLY!!! But I dont think they're gonna allow you to pick-up your pre-order at the store. DEFINATELY not after the fiasco this has been. They'll probably hang up on you if you tried

      I had this happen with the 3GS last year. I went ahead and pre-ordered through the site. For some reason the site was going to ship it to me a few days after launch. I called the local store, they still had plenty and weren't too busy, so I called AT&T, canceled the order and told them I'd just pick one up in the store. They were totally cool with that and it was pretty painless. That was last year, so I'm not for sure if it will be just as easy but I would imagine so.

      I was wondering the same exact thing because I'm in the same exact position as you and it's all good the best status you can have on AT&Ts website is "In Progress". The reason that the others have statuses that are different is because they ordered from the Apple Store and not AT&T

      I ordered my 3GS last year fr AT&T. It never said "back ordered" at any time during the process. They charged my cc a day after I received the phone.

      i'm so confused... the closer thursday comes, the less worried i am... i'm just pissed that i already sold my 3GS (for a $200 profit mind you) to get it off my hands before prices started dropping due to the new iphone...

      anyway, i'll just check every day or so... no biggie... can still get texts and make phone calls on my blackberry... i just miss my apps so damn much!!!

      AT&T needs to update their system a little freaking faster. My order still says in process. I know I should be patient but it's hard. It better ship by Monday or Tuesday.

      "to get it off my hands before prices started dropping due to the new iphone"

      Prices might go up because not every one is savye enoguh to modify their sim cards.

      Knowing AT&T they will use the slowest shipping method to save money.

      So I have buyers remorse already. Pre-ordered a 16gb through ATT premier and now want a 32gb. What are my options? Maybe get lucky on the 24th that the Apple store has a 32gb I can exchange and pay the difference plus probably get socked with a 10% restocking fee!
