  • 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."

      Weird...everything I've ordered from Apple has always come FedEx standard or I've paid extra for 2 or 3 day.

      OK show me the email where it guarantees you to have it by the 19th... I want to see that wording, where it promises you that you will have it.

      Wait till it only goes to one thing listed, its freight I think, and then the tracking number will be a link and you can click on it to follow. They are showing the tracking number that is assigned to your shipment, even though UPS hasn't actually scanned them into their system yet. I'm assuming that they had the little shipping stickers already and are just slapping them on and are giving you the tracking number ahead of time.

      I guess I'll just throw in my two cents worth. I ordered mine on the 13th at apple site when completed order system stated will receive confirmation E-Mail in a short period of time. On Sunday I hadn't received any confirmation so I called Apple and they told that Apple was behind with the confirmations but I should receive shortly. The lady I spoke looked mine up and stated that all was well. A hour or so later I get a confirmation E-mail and it stated "
      Prepared for Shipment
      Product / Part No.
      Qty

      IPHONE 3G S BLACK 16GB-USA
      MB715LL/A


      1


      Ships: Delivers by June 19th

      Now 3 days later mine still shows samething so I called Apple to see what gives and they told me that everything was OK with my order and I could get it by the 19th but that is only a estimated time of arrival it might be later. I told them I was confused and under the circumstances if I had known that it could be later I would have selected a different shipping class and the extra to get it. The person I spoke to is the iphone cannot be shipped any other way then standard that is how Apple is doing it. So I don't know for sure when I'm getting it. Did any one else get this same conversion as me? I hope it comes by Friday.

      i just got off the phone with apple and the lady i spoke to said that depending which part of the country, it can be delivered by UPS OR FEDEX. She checked my order of the 2 phones i ordered one on the 11th and the other on the 14th and she said both said ready to be shipped. She also said that is apples intention to have everyones phone by the 19th for those who have purchased it online but with reserve theres no guarantee

      haha it would be kinda funny if they sent everyone that hacked the site to order it a fake phone via UPS.

      funny in a very messed up way... a way that would make me, personally, go to Cupertino and shoot Jobs.

      The actual shipment date and receipt of your order is not guaranteed and may be subject to delays for reasons that include, but are not limited to, product availability, inventory, credit issues, number porting or carrier delays, and completion of other required AT&T business processes.

      ANCHORAGE AT 1:48PM LOCAL TIME.
      That would be 10:48AM CST (my time).

      To get from Alaska to New Orleans (IF it were a direct flight), it would take somewhere in the 9-13 hour range.

      So depending on where it is going.. it could very well get here tomorrow.

      i just checked my tracking and it shows its in alaska also, and like yours they have removed the scheduled delivery. so i would say they are going to sit a while.

      I called UPS since it doesn't show a delivery date on the site, and they transferred me to the international service and they just told me that my phone is currently in Alaska and that it has a guaranteed delivery date of Friday the 19th, but is expected to arrive Thursday the 18th. Woo for me hopefully.
