  • iPhone 3G S Delivering . . . Tomorrow?!?
    A user here at MMi emailed us some interesting images of his iPhone 3G S delivery status. He ordered his phone via Apple using the Apple Store hack and like others, has received his USPS tracking info.

    Funny thing is, UPS says that his iPhone 3G S is expected to be delivered to him tomorrow. Has Apple made a mistake allowing iPhone Day to come early for many this year? The iPhone isn't being delivered to an AT&T or Apple Store for pick-up, it's being delivered straight to this members house. Maybe USPS has instructions from Apple to hold packages until friday . . . .




    Edit: Nope, looks like UPS is holding it because the "receiver requested a hold for a future delivery date."

      Plus.. mine hasn't even shipped yet.. and i pre ordered on the 14th.. wtf?
      From what I have been reading online the Pre-Orders from apple sold out on the 13th... any pre-orders after the 13th are about 2 weeks out.

      Whats interesting is it says "THE RECEIVER REQUESTED."

      It should be sender... you never made a request... technically its arguable and possibly an argument you could win if you asked some dumb schmuck at the depot.

      but odds are it wont get you anywhere so its really a moot point. I'll shut up now

      I just got off the phone with UPS, I told them that my package says, "THE RECEIVER REQUESTED A HOLD FOR A FUTURE DELIVERY DATE. UPS WILL ATTEMPT DELIVERY ON DATE REQUESTED" I let them know that I am the receiver and I never requested for a hold. The rep that help me informed me that it is a system error and my package is guaranteed to be delivered tommorrow by 10AM.

      The phone number I called was 1-800-782-7892

      was hoping that would inspire someone to call! if he says its an error then he could go into the system and "fix" the error... here's hoping it doesnt get caught and stopped again!

      I was not trying to inspire anyone to call. I was only informing everyone that is tracking thier package, what I was told. I only listed the number I called incase someone wanted to call for themselves.

      Well I just received my E-Mail from Apple that mine has been shipped which is dated today. This is what it says "Shipment Date: Jun 17, 2009 Delivers by: Jun 23, 2009" So if this info is right I won't get mine until next Tuesday. I hope this is wrong because this will really sucks since everything pointed to delivered by: 6/19/2009 until this. Anyone else get this?
