  • Apple : iPhone 4 Delivery Will Occur June 23rd... For Some


    If you were among the lucky individuals to successfully place your preorder with Apple for the new iPhone 4 on June 15th, you may receive your much-anticipated delivery one day early. But, chances are, if you're among the lucky folks who will get their iPhone on Wednesday... you already know about it.

    It seems Apple has begun emailing some iPhone 4 buyers with a notice that their delivery will take place on Wednesday, June 23rd - tomorrow. Shortly after midnight, Apple started sending this email to more than a few folks who preordered their iPhone 4:

    Dear Apple Store Customer,

    You recently received a Shipment Notification email from Apple advising you that your iPhone has shipped.

    This email is to confirm that your delivery will occur on June 23rd. Although Apple and FedEx tracking information may currently indicate a later date, you can check the FedEx website the morning of the June 23rd to track your package to your doorstep.

    In the event that you will not be available to accept delivery on June 23rd, it may be more convenient to use our pre-sign delivery option by visiting our Order Status website at Apple Order Status.

    Sincerely,

    The Apple Store Team

    So might an early delivery also come your way? Keep a close eye on your inbox today and keep your fingers crossed.

      A classic example of the right hand not knowing what the left hand is doing. That is a common problem with big companies. Its not like this whole thing hasn't been riddled with issues anyway. I certainly don't know the answer for sure but it did happen this way two years ago. Maybe someone that was around then will remember and chime in. Regardless, if you folks do get yours ahead of everyone else, consider yourself very lucky.

      They are not going to hold any shipments. They decided to let them go through on the 23rd to try and reduce any issues with activation chaos on the 24th by letting those phones able to be delivered by the 23rd to go through to their destination.

      Many FedEx shipments still reflect the 24th date as the shipment date for their phone, because of the hold restriction Apple imposed on most phones originally. This restriction has been released by Apple and Apple has attempted to email those whose shipment dates will now be moved up to the 23rd. They sent the email out because the FedEx shipment date on their website may not be updated with the restriction release till the morning of the 23rd when the phone actual goes out on the truck for final delivery. This would not be good for many who planned on being there for the shipment, or need to get their signature authorization on their door a day earlier.

      I would expect there will be 10's of thousands of iPhones in hand on the 23rd - hope this does alleviate some activation issues.

      Not to mention FedEx trying to delivery 500,000+ extra packages in one day ...not possible, not even during Christmas time with extra hire help!!!

      This year iPhone 4 is totally diff. from 3g. Too many of them. Fedex won't be able to deliver 1st batch in even 2days so they called apple about it and since it already gets here they both agreed to get it out 1 day earlier. Everybody happy including myself

      For those who took a day off or something, they can always pre-sign from the apple order page.

      I ordered at 5:30 am EST (1.5 hours after pre-order launch) from AT&T. So...hoping that qualifies me for their earliest shipping. My friend ordered 2 Iphones from apple, one was ordered mid-day, one at night. For some reason the one at night shows the 23rd. There's going to be a lot of hate if this does or if this doesn't come true.

      For all the people that got the e-mail, and if it doesn't happen...that's so messed up. Getting your hopes up like that, I know you'll all be horribly mad and apples apology won't do anything.

      For all the people that got the e-mail, and if it does happen...**** you LOL. I stayed up and was trying to order at 4 am, finally got it through at 5:30 am EST and you're going to get your phone a day before me?

      Also for who was asking about the tracking numbers working. I got one through fedex and it doesn't work yet. Another one of my friends ordered through AT&T though and his is coming via UPS, his tracking number already works. The e-mail notification I got says it can take up to 72 hours though...

      "Dear ***************,

      We shipped your recently placed AT&T Premier order.

      If you pre-ordered the iPhone 4, it is staged for pickup by our shipping carrier. Because of unprecedented volume, it may be as much as 72 hours before the carrier can provide any detailed information to you. Please don't be concerned if you visit the carrier's site and specific information about your order is not provided. The information will be updated when the carrier picks up the order at our warehouse.

      Your tracking number is shown below:

      Web Order number: ****************

      Your FEDEX tracking number is:
      ************

      To track your shipment(s) online, follow the link to the FEDEX website
      FEDEX "

      On the fedex site it says:

      "No information for the following shipments/FedEx Office orders has been received by our system yet. Please try again later or contact Customer Service."
