    I ordered mine on Wednesday and mine says "Prepared for Shipment"

    I want to know some other's stories.

    I know that some people even ordered on June 8th and still have "Prepared for Shipment"

    Anyway, tell me your story.

    (Plus I'm just really bored)

    They will most likely be shipped overnight from a domestic location tomorrow. Prepared to ship probably means they are in boxes ready to go, but are being held until Thursday since they ship via overnight.

    What?

    You might want to re-read what you just said, it didn't make sense.

    I called apple and recorded the call.

    The guy said that Apple still promises that my iPhone will be at my door on Friday even though I ordered on Wednesday at 12:15 P.M.

    If anyone wants to hear the phone conversation, tell me, I'll upload it.

    How does it not make sense, people have been stating that those who ordered early or fairly early there phones are coming from stockpiles they had here in the states already. The people that have had theres shipped already are the phones that have been shipped from China which is why they have received tracking numbers already.

    So the people that have prepared for shipment statuses are supposedly the ones that are getting a phone from the original batch they already had here in the states and not the ones that have shipped from China within the last few days.

    I ordered one 16gb on the 9th and mine is still at prepared to ship by 19th. I called apple because the pending sale from the purchase got pulled from my account. They said that it still looks like its going to be at my house by the 19th so I'm trying to stay optimistic. I guess we'll see tomorrow

    Ordered the 15th and still prepared for shipping as well. Now I am just hoping that my order doesn't randomly get canceled by Apple or something like has happened to some users on here.

    I ordered mine to be shipped to me but I got an email today saying this:

    What's going on here? My account info still says, "prepared for shipment". I ordered it at the online Apple Store.. Shouldn't this be shipped to my house?
