  • 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.

      Still nothing on FedEx site about tracking information...WTF??? I called FedEx earlier today and they said that Apple still had not given them the phones so that's why there was no real time tracking information available.

      Getting so sick of these pathetic a** inconsistant stories!!

      Finally. Fedex shows that they received the shIpping information, but has not picked up the item. Anticipated delivery date. 6/14/10. Let's hope they get here by tomorrow. Wish I could've gotten through to apple so I could've gotten mine today. :/

      Sorry. I meant delivery date. 6/24/10.

      finally i get the truth!!! apple has FAILED to tell me every time I called in that there is an issue with porting my number over. Apple will not ship me a phone until att says its ok, att won't say it ok until they get my number from verizon but can't even send the request until apple gives them the phone number to port over. Apple is waiting on att's ok, att is waiting on apple! I can't believe this hasn't been noticed until now! now apple can't get me a phone by tomorrow since its coming from china. they have offered me a "bumper" but if i wanted one of those I would have ordered one! I'm about ready to just cancel my order and go with my reserved one I have waiting for me at the store.

      definitely sounds like the best thing to do is wait it out. the whole porting process is a pain in ***.
