    Just curious if anyone is now getting a quicker delivery quoted on their orders. I have seen a bunch of people saying it was showing October 5th; however, now it is showing September 21 and is now prepping for shipment.. Still hoping I will get mine sooner, as my current phone (3 yr old HTC EVO 4G) might not make it till the 5th.


    Please list where you ordered from, order time, model, color..

    You'll make it to the 5th. I know that feeling though, when I upgraded my 3G the new phone couldn't come soon enough.

    Hang in there man, it'll be a great experience when it does come.

    Haha, yeah I'm trying. Just have seen a lot of people receive earlier dates, so I am keeping my fingers crossed... I originally had an October 2nd delivery date, but I called Apple today to add applecare to my order, and it bumped me to the 5th. I even asked the rep if it would delay my shipment and she said no.... fail. All she said was 'oops'..

    He isn't by chance one of the few that got the reservation hold due to carrier issues? I've seen a lot of those guys get bumped from Oct to Sept 21st delivery dates. I'm still holding hope that a lot of us early Oct 2nd guys that just missed the cutoff by minutes receive ours during the 24-28th.

    He got his around 3 AM CST on the 14th. I preordered went through at 3:10 AM CST.

    He didn't have any reservation issue. I have seen a bunch of other get bumped over last night, and they didnt have reservation issues either.

    Placed order at 3:54 a.m. the 14. E-mail said Delivers 9/21 but said 10/5. Yesterday morning it went back to 9/21 and this morning I'm able to track via ups using my phone number as a reference. Its coming from Nashville, 64GB Black AT&T. Happy dude over here

    Nice! Seems like the only people getting bumped are the ones that had that email/website delivery date issue.

    I would be thrilled if I even HAD a shipping date! I just have a 14-21 business days shipping range. That means that I might not get my phone for over a month from now.

    Interestingly, I still have a 'pending' charge on my credit card - two actually - one for $1 and one for $211. Are they going to keep a hold on my card for an entire month? That does not seem right.

    I also had my delivery as 10/5 until Monday when it was bumped to 9/21. It now says its prepping for Shipment, and now I can track it via UPS.

    I ordered 9/14 3:52am EST. black 32GB AT&T.

    When I check, it says "delivers 9/21" used to say "delivers 10/5".

    According to UPS, mine is also in Nashville, TN to be delivered to Chicago.

    Had issues, works internet wouldnt load one of the pages after checking eligibility. SO I had to order via Apple Store iPhone app. It would only let me order one phone at a time. SO one order was at 0356EDT and the other at 0400 EDT. I had dates during the process going back and forth between 9/21 and ships in 2 weeks. My confirmation e-mails came with the links showing ships on Oct 2. After about 24hrs it changed to delivers on Oct 2 and has not changed any.

    I can only wish it changes in the next few hours.

    Yes. Ordered @ 64gb black/Verizon (full price) 7:30a ET launch day. Submit order page = 9.21 delivery. Final thank you page: 2 weeks. Confirming email = 10.5. Order status page changed this morning, from processing to preparing for shipment. I haven't checked my cc for actual payment yet. I'm in North Carolina.
