  • 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.

      That isn't true because I ordered mine at 5:00am Eastern time on the 15th and I have a (1) in the back-ordered column..It may be the other way around. If u ordered too late you may have a (0) in the back-ordered column..

      When I spoke to an AT&T rep on the phone yesterday to check my order status, they said that it says back-ordered because they haven't gotten them in stock yet. That would make sense that it says back-ordered for mine and whoever else has a (1) in the column that ordered it early on June 15th. If u have a (0)in there u may get it a little late if they havent caught up on the orders yet.

      All of you with back order or pre ordered on the 15 but show pre ordered on the 16 did all of use a Debt Visa/Master/Bank cards? When I went to the AT&T store to order my i4 since everything was down they told me that any one using anything but a actual credit card will have delay in processing and could end up being bump even thou you may have orederd before some else. They told me that actual credit cards took priorit.

      You cant say that either because I used a chase visa check/debit card and I preordered on the 15th it processed on the 15th!

      Its like saying the money in my checking account isnt good enough!

      I can see how that wouldn't be true. That was the first words that came out of the sales rep mouth when I was paying. I was going to pay in full with cash but he told a actual credit would garranty me that the i4 would get to me by the 24. I dud my pre order at 4:30PM MT.

      One says I ordered on the 15th and the other says the 16th. I hope this doesn't mean I won't get my iPhone until the 2nd. Or even the 25th.

      that ^^ is EXACTLY what happened to me!!!

      the sales rep has absolutely no idea what they are talking about. there is absolutely no way for the payment system to differentiate between a visa/mastercard bank check card and a credit card. if your card has a visa or mastercard logo that's exactly how the payment goes through, as a credit card payment. there is NO difference in the processing.

      I have my order confirmed and Prepared for shipment, but I have no charge in my bank account. It was pending on the 15th, and was no longer in que on the 17th. What's up with that?

      Ok, so lets get this straight.

      For those of us who ordered on AT&T and have all 0's in the back-ordered column. Does it say that the iPhone was ordered on the 15th?

      And for the people with 1's does it say it was ordered on the 16th?

      No mine says June 15th as the date ordered and I have (1)'s in my backordered column. I ordered at around 5am Eastern time on the 15th. All this s88t is confusing as hell. I should of ordered from Apple.

      I ordered mine at 5-6 pm EST on the 15th but it says it was ordered on the 16th and I have 0's in the back order column. I am dying to get rid of my BS 3G and get this iPhone 4
