  • iPhone 4S Preorder Shipping Delayed - Update On Availability

    We previously heard that the iPhone 4S was on route to be the best selling iPhone yet and the trend seems to be continuing. After AT&T’s announcement of selling 200,000 preorders within the first 12 hours of preorders opening up to the public, we heard that Apple was forced to push back international shipping dates, and now the delay seems to present in the United States as well.

    Apple’s website now shows an estimated iPhone 4S shipping time of 1-2 weeks. It is now confirmed that AT&T has all three models of the iPhone 4S (16GB, 32GB, and 64GB) shipping within 14-21 days after the official release (October 14th). Verizon only has 32GB and 64GB models left for delivery on October 14th and Sprint is completely sold out of the 16GB model (for later dates as well) in terms of deliveries. If you want to get the 16GB model on Sprint, you’ll have to run to a local Sprint store on launch day.

    As of right now, if you are in the market for a 32GB or 64GB iPhone 4S and you are with Verizon or planning on going for Sprint, you still have a chance. If not, we would recommend deciding a strategy to wait in line at local retail stores next week to ensure you secure the iPhone 4S for yourself. Word on the street is, people are already lining up, so if you really want an iPhone 4S you’ll have to plan accordingly.

    So much for all the disappointment… the iPhone 4S seems to be selling as fast, if not faster than its predecessors.

      Just curious, thanks.

      EDIT: this is my first iDevice purchase on launch, so I'm a n00b for this...be gentle.

      So I have a question with AT&T. Are people being charged shipping? I gave ATT a call. I wanted to use an upgrade from another line that I had so this was the only way to do it. They were able to do that for me, but they wanted $20 for 3-4 day shipping. What's up with that? I told the rep that Apple did free shipping to be delivered on the day of launch. She said there was nothing she could do. As a result I seem to be stuck camping.

      Would you sell your iPad2 3g to get your hands on the new iPhone?

      I ordered from apple around 7pm Pacific. I haven't gotten a tracking # yet. But if you use your phone # in the reference field this might work. My iphone is coming by UPS. Here's the screenshot.
