    I thought it would be a good idea to break up the different ordering sources. This is why I created the Apple Store iPhone 4S Preorder thread. I ordered a 16GB Black iPhone 4S from apple.com at 1240 am. It is now showing as preparing for shipment. I am going to speculate that we will receive them on the 12th of October..

    I tried pre-ordering it on the Apple store, but they wouldn't allow me to ship the phone to a different address other than my billing...anyone able to work around this?

    I preordered two 16GB black models on Apple.com at about 7am on Friday morning. Mine still says processing items.

    I'm pretty sure were gonna get them on the 14th considering that's what it says.

    Last year, Apple released all iPhone 4 shipments for early release and everyone got them a day early if I remember right. So don't be so sure swoosh.

    You can change the address right after "processing" I changed mine to my work. Works great every time.

    Haha alright. This is the first time I've preordered so forgive me for listening to what it says on my email. I generally would just go into the store to pick it up. Hey I could be wrong though and I'd rather have it be delivered earlier.

    allowing shipments to be delivered one day early last year was a strategic move on Apple's behalf. Don't be so sure we're getting them two days early this time.

    Placed the order from Apple. Tried editing the shipping address but it won't allow me to, says "You cannot edit your order while it is in this state"

    Maybe I'm missing something but I cannot tell which state my order is in currently...

    [edit] Got it to work, had to wait a bit to say "Processing Order" i/o "We received your order"

    It wouldn't surprise me that we could be looking at the 12th due to the release of iOS 5 on the 12th. I am going to keep my fingers crossed.. I guess we will see.

    mine is still in processing.. i ordered it from apple at 7 am cst on the 7th (yesterday). received my order acknowledgment at 10:45 am cst the same day. never received any other email to "complete" the order as other people have stated. I'm nervous that i missed a step or something. does mine look like its all good? do you think I'm in the first batch?

    For those that have moved to "Preparing for Shipment" it would be interesting to hear if it's a USA or international shipment, as well as the approximate time you completed your order. Since AT&T couldn't handle the crush, Apple reserved one for me and I finally completed my order around noon Friday. I'm still "processing".

    It's a USA delivery.

    So this means it will not be shipping from China or whatever? How can you confirm?

    You can change it once the order is placed. Just view your order and there is a link on the left that will allow you to change shipping/billing address.

    edit://I see you got it working :D

    I think he meant that the phone is going to be delivered to a U.S. address.

    I just noticed that mine says Fast Ship (EMEA) on the delivery thing, rather than standard. Does this mean I have a faster shipment than others? (UK phone, oct 14th delivery estimate) I'm still in processing stage.

    I preordered mine as soon as the store went up at 8:40 friday morning. 16GB version

    Mine has the same, so probably normal for us.

    I placed the reservation at around 3:45am Central time Friday morning when Apple started doing that instead of sending people through to the AT&T site, and then completed the order around 11am Friday. As of right now, mine is still in "Processing Items" mode
