    It's past the cutoff date to get a 3GS from apple.com by the 19th, as with new orders it says ships within 2-4 business days.

    i ordered mine late sunday night (3AM EST) and it said it would deliver by june 19th and still says prepared for shipment but I'm not really worried.

    Just thought I'd let buyers at this point know in case they breeze past the ordering process.

    I saw this today on the apple store as well, it doesn’t say delivers by June 19th under the order button. Looks like now you either got one or you don’t as AT&T, Apple, and Best Buy have cut off Friday orders. Anybody heard from Wal-Mart?

    I noticed this too. I ordered mine from Apple.com for delivery last night around 11, scheduled to deliver by 19th, still says "Prepared for Shipment", not surprised. Got it in right under the deadline :D
    My guess is that what Apple did is ship a ton to the US and left them in storage. All of the early Apple.com orders got shipped from China, since there was time to do so. Anyone ordering past Sunday or so are getting phones that have been in the US for awhile, staged at different locations around the country so that orders placed yesterday had time to process/ship in the two days left before Friday. Any leftovers will be distributed amongst the stores, as well as any extras from China
