  • 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.

      [quote=supershick;5297226]Hey guys,

      Just wanted to share I ordered from Apple website and got this shipment confirmation from them. Looks like it'll arrive by June 23rd (which probably means 24th, duh) and it's allowing me to pre-sign by leaving a printed fed-ex document at my front door. hope all you guys are successful!!

      -------------------------------------------------------------------
      Yeah, that means the Fedex HUB or your local Fedex shipping facility will get it on the 23rd and hold it for delivery until the 24th.

      OK I checked my bank account and now apple has put my iPhone deposit back into my bank account after taking it out. I'm more sure what's going on but my order status on apple dot com still says prepared for shipment.

      Yes, my AT&T premier status just changed from Backordered = 1 to Backordered = 0.

      Also, if you ordered from the Premier site and would like a nice soothing automated voice to tell you that your iphone is being shipped shortly, call 1-866-499-8008 option 2, option 3, option 1.

      Ordered mine at my local AT&T store at 5pm EST while their computers were down and was just emailed by the rep who helped me that day who confirmed that I will be receiving my iPhone at my home on either the 24th or 25th. I honestly feel pretty lucky as I ordered so late in the day when all the news was that they had already sold out of their pre-order stock. Sorry to those who ran in to bad luck. Hope you get your soon!!

      they do that because the first charge is a test to see if your card has the funds able and ready to pay for the phone but they dont officialy charge you until it is shipped. ( i spoke to apple rep about this when my funds dissapeared)

      Looks all good for me. Pre-ordered from apple and it shows "Prepared for Shipment." June 24th

      So I take it Apple has shipped the iPhones and AT&T hasn't started yet, anyone that order from AT&T get a shipment e-mail or status update yet?

      AT&T order status web page and phone number are not able to pull up any statuses right now, maybe that means they're in the process of informing customers of their tracking numbers and status updates or just a lot of people checking their status and it overloaded or well idunno, lol, any other ideas?
