  • 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.

      Don't reorder. It is confusing, but I think it'll work out and we'll get our phones on the 24th.

      So whats good? 1's or 0's?

      If something is back-ordered, it means it isn't available when ordered. I'm not making anything up here or making a wild assumption.

      I'll stand by my earlier premise -- as long as your order is showing ones in the back-ordered column, I doubt you'll be receiving your phone on the 24th.

      Yay!

      I'm a little confused about my credit card charges, though. I only made it to the payment screen once, lol.

      It doesn't make sense that it'd be showing a 1 in the back-order column when I ordered my iPhone at 1:48 am PST on the 15th!

      I was saying that you cant say its because people ordered later in the day is why they have 1's in the backorder column! You stated your friend ordered at noon est and he has a 0 yet I ordered before he did at 8:30 est and I have a 1 in backorder.

      Also what you are saying makes absolute sense when something is back ordered you would be getting it when it is in stock! but from what you said about your friends order, he ordered later than some other people on here I have seen myself included but yet he doesnt have a 0 in the back order.

      IDK whats going on with AT&T but its crap!

      This is why I'm confused the people who ordered early have 1 back-ordered and the late orders have 0.

      It doesn't make sense!

      I'm a new AT&T customer.
      Ordered 2 phones on 6/15 @ 7am EST
      Received order confirmation right away and paid using a VISA debit card

      Since then I've received a few emails confirming my pre-order and number port from Sprint (which is now confirmed and ready to go).

      Had a $1.00 hold on my bank which later turned into the full price of the 2 phones.
      Order status on AT&T says I placed my order on 6/16 (wrong!) with a 1 in QTY ordered and a 0 under Backorder.
      Originally it said 1 under backorder but has since changed.

      As of 6/19 both phones, sims, freight say In progress.
      Bank hold has disappeared.

      I'm not worried. Willing to bet tracking info will update on Monday/Tuesday when they're shipped and probably held by local Fedex until 6/24.

      None of the iPhones were available in stock when we ordered. And I ordered mine at 5am EST, AT&T's website and the way they are doing things is just so damn confusing/stupid. If I ordered at 5am EST, I should be getting my iPhone on the 24th. The back-order column just doesn't make sense. But we'll see come next week if anything changes.

      ok now hers
      Click "in progress" and read the legend, everything is clear there

      Hey people nothing is confused when you see a 1 on your backorder column when you pre-order from ATT, click on "in progress" and read the legend, you can see everything explained in there, the thing is we still asking because we dont want to accept what it means. Look at the legend and is explained there. Look what "backorder" means, look what "in progress" mean

      Just to calm some folks down...

      if you pre-ordered your iPhone to pick it up in an Apple Store, and you received an email from Apple saying "Thanks for reserving your iPhone. It will be here June 24" then you are good to go - there will be no other email or confirmation of any kind that you will receive. And further, if you look at your Apple account online, you won't even see your iPhone4 order listed there. That is because all of these orders have been forwarded to the local Apple store that you will be picking up your iPhone4 at, and they have a list of all those who have reserved.
