  • 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.

      Lol nobody cares about the article just the parrot.As for the article i have to say im not surprised. It's got some pretty mean hardware; you do have to take into consideration that there are plenty of people that live and breath apple and will buy anything.

      AT&T told me on the phone that any order after 4pm on 10/7 will not arrive on Oct 14th. So if you ordered it before that time then you should be getting it on the 14th.

      I dont think AT&T has a clue as of when Apple will be shipping customers preorders.

      Last year apple would let us visit a retail store & reserve the phone without paying. No way I would wait in line for 10 hours like I have done in the passed.

      Crazy. Mine's still in processing but does say it's delivery date will be the 14th. I had to of been one of the last people that had an order go through on the Apple site LOL. Me and my buddy camped the Apple page before 12 and when the page did finally launch we were stuck on it for 2 hours trying to get our orders through. Kept re-doing the process over an over an over an over again, finally I got past one of the screens I've never got past before and BAM my order went through. 30 seconds later my buddy hits me up cussing a storm and says go add another iPhone to your basket and see what it says, and that's when the SOLD OUT screen was popping up LMFAO. Well not SOLD OUT, but "We're sorry, we cannot process any iPhone orders at this time" or something like that. So I definitely lucked out. 10-15 minutes after that is when everybody got the RESERVE page.

      Question here

      I pre ordered my i4S through Verizon within minutes of the site accepting pre orders. Is it safe to say that I'll get my delivery on the 14th? Or is that delivery delay more for those that waited till the late morning/afternoon you think?

      Just curious, thanks.

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