    While shipping estimates for some iPhone 4S orders placed through Apple's U.S. carriers partners did begin to slip quite soon after pre-orders launched late last week, Bloomberg now reports that pre-orders through all three carriers have officially sold out ahead of tomorrow's launch.
    Apple, its carrier partners, and several third-party retailers are planned to have stock of iPhone 4S models available tomorrow for those willing to wait in line, but those seeking to place orders for delivery will need to wait some time.

    I'm hoping lines won't be too crazy tomorrow, since I didn't pre-order. Hopefully Apple has learned from past experience and has plenty of stock available.

    Really glad I got mine. Something tells me the lines will go crazier than last year.

    What MR doesn't mention is that sprint is still taking 32GB and 64GB pre-orders, but they won't be fulfilled on the 14th anymore.

    Good thing all those 4S haters were true that the 4S was going to be a flop and no one would want it... /sarcasm off ;)

    Buh, no one said the iPhone 4S would flop. Are you confusing dissatisfaction with pessimism?

    I wasn't happy with the offering and I bought one anyway. Why? I thought Apple could do better. I'm still hostile that they didn't. But I knew it would sell and I didn't want to leave the eco-system.

    However, this could be stagnating-5 years from now. There will be NO short term losses for Apple, and long term ones aren't able to be measured and everyone knows that.

    What am I saying? Everyone who criticizes Apple thought that the iPhone 4S would fail. Did you hear WebOS has more market share than iOS in the minds of iOS "Haters"? No? Oh.

    Grow up.

    You people there don't know how much happy you are. Here, in Croatia, we're getting iPhone 4s in December!

    I was just at mall Sprint Kiosks. They have huge boxes with a big "DO NOT OPEN UNTIL 8:00 AM OCT 14" plastered all over them. They are HEAVY. Definitely filled with iPhones. It seems Apple probably made around 2 million. Sent 1 million off for pre orders and the other million or so are going to kiosks and apple stores. Pretty crazy. This is the first time I've seen mall kiosks with the iPhone. Excited to get mine. Gonna go stand in line now...

    Glad I preordered right away. I considered hitting up the store but my Verizon which had iP4 at launch will not have iP4S.

    I'm pretty frustrated right now. Been waiting for my "It's been shipped!" confirmation because I ordered just before 6:23am on Friday, the 7th (PST)... and discovered that the AT&T site now has my updated information available on the main account page (had to go through the Premier confirmation link previously), but it says it wasn't "ordered" until 10/10, so it's "backordered" and still "processing." Apparently all I get for pre-ordering is not waiting in line and getting my phone delivered days or weeks after the launch. Argh. I'm VERY close to throwing my barely working 3G at a wall or concrete floor.
