** UPDATE 2 ** As of 6/22/ @ 11 AM PST all 5 orders have valid tracking numbers (FedEx) with delivery for tomorrow by 3PM *** UPDATE *** As of 8:19 PM PST 6/21/2010 All 5 of the orders I have been watching are no longer back ordered To Recap: All orders placed on launch day, most of them around 9 AM to 10 AM PST on AT&T Premier. Last order was placed before 1:30 PM on 6/15 via AT&T Premier. AT&T Premier order statuses as of this update have no new info, but the standard AT&T order system shows back order flags cleared. All orders were put into the AT&T order system the day after they were placed in premier. Note as mentioned that the system timestamps the orders; so the actual date you completed your order is the date the system counts, not when it was sent from premier to AT&T regular ordering fulfillment. **********************[/B] Original Post: Hey fellow premier users.. I just got off the phone w/ premier support. I feel a little better and i'm hoping the guy wasn't pulling my leg to just get me off the phone but we talked for 5 - 10 mins or so. I don't get the feeling he was just feeding me BS. Long story short.. he said the back ordered thing isn't an issue [as we know back ordered = your account hasn't been paired with an iPhone s/n yet]. They should be getting more phones tonight so more and more users will be removed from back ordered status. He said we are put on back order to freeze the system so it doesn't try to move forward; and went on to say that the system isn't designed for a 9 day pre-order, it usually expects to see orders move forward within 24-48 hours after it's placed so a 9 day hold is causing conflicting info in the accounts and order statuses. He told me that each order is time stamped and they are being fulfilled in order, confirming that even though my order on AT&T says rec'd 6/16 it was time stamped into the system on 6/15, and my order is on track, not delayed, no issues, everything is good etc. He also said they [premier I assume] went down 5 times and they even had to rebuild a web server due to the traffic hit. So hopefully this helps some others.. I just got an app update for angry birds so I have 15 levels to keep me busy for now!
