  • 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.

      well just got off a conference call with a supervisor from apple and a lady from ATT and they think they have my issue cleared up they are just waiting to get the information we had on the conference call from att to apple...which could take anywhere from an hour to a week so i was pretty much assured i wont get my phone tomorrow and i could possibly get it then most of the pre-orders that happened yesterday but hey i got a free bumper and dock out of the deal.

      definitely b.s. the guy is just saying that because hes reading the same website you are and seeing it says "Ships: Delivers Jun 24" and that means to him its still on track ... my suggestion is get a supervisor by saying i have been told to just wait it out and wait it out my phone has still not shipped and there is no possible way for it to get to me in time. Get a supervisor on the line and just be nice and try to work out where your problem is. My supervisor even got att on the phone for us just to make sure both sides were clear and able to approve me.

      That sound like what I had to do... I'll be heading down to buy my reserved iPhone at the store and cancel my online order after I get it. I was told that it could be a day, few days, week, or month before my iphone ships out. No thanks! I'll just fight the crowds and beat them off with my blackberry. I don't care if that thing gets broke, blackberrys are about the phone equivalent to fords... Found On Road Dead!

      I got a order canceled on my AT&T account order status but I got the E-mail with tracking number that shows that it was shipped per FEDEX. No activity on my credit card.
