    I'm sure the closes warehouse to the address the order belongs to.

    I ordered my AT&T iPhone from Apple and it shipped out of China. It took roughly a week to get to me.

    Apple does not warehouse phones in the US.

    It will ship from China

    OP's asking where iPhones bought from AT&T ship from.

    My 4S and 5 were both shipped from Fort Worth, TX.

    AT&T ships most (if not all) of their phones, as the guy above me said, from Fort Worth, TX.

    It'll arrive in the date specified. Or slightly after.

    Well, they sure did on launch day. I preordered my iPhone. It sat on UPS's ramp in Louisville, KY for 6 days before moving.

    OP, if you're really interested, when you get a tracking number you'll also know the shipper. Go to flightaware.com. Find your shipper. When tracking gives you a departure scan, find the time and compare it to the flights for your shipper. Find the closest one to the time and city of your departure scan and you'll know your flight. You can then track your flight (and your phone) via flightaware.

    That's what I did, which is how I knew my iPhone was sitting in Louisville. Tracked my UPS flight from Louisville to Phoenix, about a 4 hour flight.

    To actually answer your question and silence the random banter this thread has garnered.

    It will ship from China, almost always Zhengzhou, and arrive at an AT&T warehouse. From there it will sit until it is ordered, and will ship from either Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas (usually) or Memphis, Tennessee.

    If its from AT&T I'd say its coming from the state of mass confusion.

    Because all phones ship at the same speed, it doesn't matter where you leave from if you get to your destination at the same time.

    True, wild conjecture from us will be better than official posting from UPS with tracking info.
