I'm planning on taking the day off but I don't know what day to take off. Let me know your thoughts thanks in advance.

    Why would you want to take the day off? If you are concerning about not receiving the shipment, you can go to apple store website and change shipping address to your work or wherever you would be.

    No. Apple has a hold on all their products. It may reach your local fedex/ups/whatever store on the 22-23 but they won't deliver it until the 24th. You can't even go to the fedex place on the 23rd and pick it up early either.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    Doubtful. I think it happened to a couple of people during the 3G launch 2 years ago, because Fed Ex (or UPS?) let a couple slip by accidentally. They'll just hold it at the hub on the 23rd and deliver it to you on the 24th.
    Of course, should I be wrong, I'll happily eat my words.

    I have a paid day off that I need to take so I figured I would just take it on the 24th if that's when I'm going to get my phone but I'm not sure if that's when its going to get here.

    Fedex will hold on all iPhone shipments 'til 24th. DO NOT try to change your delivery address!!! You might just delay yours or mess it all up

    Both my orders are in transit now! Picked up yesterday from china and now they're in hongkong. Fedex working mucho overtime for the next few weeks

    I don't plan on changing anything. Seeing all the issues that have been going on. I'm leaving everything the way it is. I just don't know if my phone will be here on the 24th or some time after the second. Like i stated in a previous post my receipt that I printed after completing my order on apple's web site says delivery date June 24th but the email I got from apple says the 2nd but my order status has changed to prepared for shipment. I don't know what to think lol. If anyone can help clear this up that would be great.

    i also ordered through ATT and my credit card has a charge BUT its a pending authorization. It wont post to the account until they actually "charge" it when it gets shipped.. Mine also shows in progress, hopefully they will be shipped starting tomorrow

    I would say the 2nd if you ordered through Apple. Reason that is my guess is because those that are getting them on the 24th have received emails saying "shipped." Yours said "prepared for shipment." I could be wrong though and if you ordered through AT&T then it's anyone's guess.

    someone else explained what in-progress and back ordered mean. If it says in progress and not back ordered than your phone has been assigned a s/n and will be shipped in the first batch.

    Hopefully it helps some people, i am going crazy waiting for my phone and this information i found made me very happy




    Explanation of the AT&T Order Status Screen


    I posted this at the end of another thread last week - but I think it might be worth reposting here:

    I spoke to an old college buddy last week. He works as an operational manager at the AT&T Wireless Central Distribution Center outside of Arlington, TX - and he said that this whole thing was (obviously) a nightmare and he was in the office for 48 straight hours.

    He explained the vague terminology of the AT&T status system. Apparently there is no stock in the CDC right now, but Apple is (and has been) transmitting databases of S/N's in batches of 35,000 to AT&T. He said Apple is the only hardware vendor that operates this way prior to a launch. They wait until the last possible minute to hand the hardware over to AT&T in order to prevent early leaks.

    When your status reads "PROCESSING" without the "BACKORDER" flag, it means that your order number has been married to an iPhone S/N, it will be shipped in the first batch, and you will likely receive it on the 24th.

    If it does have the "BACKORDER" flag, it means that they received the order, and they anticipate enough stock for the 2nd or 3rd wave, but they have not paired your order number to the S/N of a phone (and this is changing day to day as they wade though the system) - so if it says BACKORDER now, it might not next week prior to the fulfillment launch.

    If you have an ALERT flag (which looks like a red exclamation point) that's bad. It means that they oversold their anticipated stock (since automation went down several times they were processing some orders by hand in stores) and you might not get your phone until July.

    The long and short of it seems to be, if it says PROCESSING you're going to get the phone on launch day. If it has the BACKORDER flag, it MIGHT come on launch day (or the flag might clear between now and the 23rd) and if you have the ALERT, you're out of luck.

    He also said there were thousands of duplicate orders - so right now a lot of the confusion comes from matching up the right capacity phone (16 or 32) to the right order. This is apparently being done by hand - so anything can happen to any order.


    Hope this helps shed some light. Take it for what its worth .

    I guess I might have to change things thanks to the fact that Apple switched from UPS to FedEx this year. Not sure if they got cheap or just weren't happy with the way UPS handled 3GS shipments. Last year when I pre-ordered 3GS it came via UPS Next Day Priority. According to UPS it was supposed to arrive by 8:30 AM but it got there at around 8:50 (no biggie).

    I've received my shipping confirmation this morning, which of course stated that it is being shipped via FedEx, and when I clicked on the tracking number it said that delivery is scheduled for the 24th by 4:30 PM.

    Although I am off on Thursday, I'll be in and out of the house during the day and could miss it. I know that when I am waiting for FedEx stuff they usually show up at around 1 PM, but I'm sure that they will be a lot busier on the 24th because of iPhones and might show up a lot later.

    I guess when my iPhone reaches my loal hub, I will give FedEx a call to see if they could hold it there on the 24th instead of putting it on a truck, and if they are willing to do that, I will drive there early in the AM and pick it up myself.
