  • 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."

      Here is something funny I just received this message from the Apple store notifying me when I would receive my iphone. "To Our Valued Apple Customer:
      Thank you for your recent order with Apple. Our records indicate that your iPhone 3G S pre-order has shipped.

      Our carrier's website may have displayed an incorrect delivery
      date for your order. However, we expect your iPhone order to be
      delivered on time on June 19, 2009."

      Thank you for shopping at the Apple Online Store.

      So I would have to think this is what there intentions are that will be delivered by Friday.

      yeah, we are all aware of their plans..
      i think what it is we are hoping for is there to be so many packages to track that their plans fall through, and UPS does what UPS is best at... screwing up.

      It's not UPS's fault you didn't get your phone early. They would have made their schedule. For anybody else's roll out 24 to 48 hours would not make that much difference. The drama queens at Apple are a strange bunch and have only one way of doing things.

      i didnt mean it was UPS's fault. What I am saying is that Apple plans on getting UPS to hold the packages until friday.

      But UPS is notorious for their ability to screw up.
      So I am saying I hope that they screw up and actually send them out tomorrow (though the scheduled delivery has disappeared from tracking again).
      Though, as the person above posted... that is hoping they screw up in our favor haha

      i dont like UPS... I wish mine was coming FEDEX.

      To the people who pre-ordered and still have not received a tracking number or anything, I wouldn't worry too much.

      I spoke with someone from Apple and they said that regardless of what the shipping date says in the email, their managers are telling everyone to pretty much expect it on the 19th.

      He also said that mine is shipping from the United States, so that may be why I haven't received anything yet. It seems as if the phones that are shipping from overseas are the ones that have shipped already, to guarantee them getting there for the 19th.

      Thats good news I guess. But it still would be nice to recieve an email notifying me that my order placed on the 9th has shipped. If it shows up Friday while I am at work I am really going to be ticked because there is no way to pre-sign for it without a tracking number.

      I received an email apologizing for the incorrect tracking information, letting me know my phone will arrive Friday. I ordered on the 9th.

      I called Apple and got the same story. She said that all of the people who ordered last week were getting theirs shipped from over seas and the carrier is holding them for a delivery date of the 19th. She said mine was packaged and ready to ship but its coming from the US so it wont show shipped until tomorrow.

      Rescheduled Delivery Date: 18-June-2009
      Exception Reason: THE PACKAGE IS BEING HELD FOR FUTURE DELIVERY. UPS WILL ATTEMPT DELIVERY ON THE DATE REQUESTED


      so my guess is that since they pushed it from the 16th to the 17th, then the 17th to the 18th. Tomorrow night they will push it to the 19th.

      though this is not a definite... according to UPS we will receive them tomorrow by 10:30AM Local Time..
      but i doubt it now.

      there goes my hope :/
