  • 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."

      Seriously?

      Well I guess it doesnt matter in this case.
      You paid $200 on your card and you got the new line of service.

      What I would be interested in is intercepting the package before it gets to AT&T and taking it for $200 minus activation lol

      Wait do we need a new SIM card? Or What's the deal with SIM cards when we go in?

      ALSO, does anyone know if it will be too late to reserve one tonight and go to a store tomorrow to pick it up?

      Only if you are getting a new line of service. Then of course you would need a SIM.. cause otherwise you couldnt use the phone.

      And im not sure... i heard something about them being out of preorders and it taking 7-14 days for new ones to come in.

      I think your best bet would to just go into the store tomorrow and get one. Best Buy and wal-mart are also selling them so I doubt you will have a hard time finding one. On the other hand I could be wrong lol

      yet again, call AT&T and ask. It is possible they just never updated it.

      And if it is delayed.. argue your head off that you were promised one on the opening day.
      Maybe you could get something out of it.

      Don't get yourself all worked up over nothing. Go back and read post #152 on page 11. I ordered my new 3Gs on June 8th from the Apple online store a mere couple of hours after the keynote address and yet my order still says "Prepared for Shipment".

      I called UPS once again because yesterday I was informed that I would receive my package by 10AM and I haven't. The rep I spoke with today told me that they cannot deliver those phones before the 19th apple told them to hold all phones. The rep also informed me that Louisville, KY is the last station before it gets to my city. So all phones that are in Louisville, KY they will be flown to your city sometime tonight and will be delivered at 10:30AM tomorrow.

      Just got a notification that my order has been shipped. Mine is shipping FEDEX. The apple store seems to be down for me so I'm not sure where it's shipping from.

      Okay. I sense that something big is going on at Apple right now at this very moment. Something on the order of a mass shipment and order update on their computer system. Why do I say this? Well, for the past several days I have been frustrated as I have been able to go to my Apple online account and INSTANTLY check my order status and yet again see that it says "Prepared for Shipment". Now all of a sudden, when I attempt to check my order status, I can't do it. It just hangs and I can't even get to that page. This would go along with what was earlier stated about the units that are being shipped from here in the U.S., probably California, overnight. Something is UP, I think.

      EDIT:Shipped on: Jun 18, 2009 via FEDERAL EXPRESS (I rest my case)
