    Does it really take that long to ship? I ordered mine tonight.

    Would like to hear how long it really took with that 14-21 day notice for you guys.

    Thanks

    Took 8 hours since I reserved it online and picked it up in-store. If you can make it out to an Apple Store, you should check if yours has any in stock at all or call in the morning and see when they will.

    Did you upgrade your phone through AT&T? They are saying it can only be ordered and shipped to the primary account holder/billing address.

    Picking up in store is not an option.

    I upgraded through AT&T, yes. It can be picked up by whoever orders it as long as the name on your ID matches the one you've ordered with.

    I see.

    Has anyone ordered through AT&T recently?

    I cannot pick it up myself. Waiting for delivery...

    I ordered yesterday afternoon as well. I have the same exact question as you do. Check your order status at:

    Mine says it is on Back-Order. I am wondering if it really will take the full 14-21 days to ship as it says.

    At this point I wouldn't order it online unless you don't care about the wait.


    I went the day after the launch and grabbed one at the apple store.

    two of my friends used the apple store reserve system and were able to get their phones last week.

    Eh...
    It's all Apple's marketing/logistics tactics. They want limited supply of the phone to create more of a buzz and desire. There's no reason why orders should be this backed up.

    I'm going to try the reservation system when my husband goes to San Antonio. Otherwise I'm going to order one because I can't find one anywhere else.

    Are you talking about the nightly Apple reservation system? If so, what does that have to do with the OP's question?

    OP, since nburwell ordered early last week, I'm sure he was quoted 21-28 days. I believe AT&T moved their shipping dates up to 14-21 days last Thursday. In the end, it is the same thing. Since nburwell ordered on September 24th, his estimated shipping dates would be October 14th-October 21st. Since you and I ordered yesterday, October 1st, we were 14-21 days. This would make our dates between October 14th-October 21st as well.

    I ordered mine on 9/23 in store. White - 16GB. The rep told me up to 21 days. If I get it by the end of next week, it would be a miracle. I'm crossing my fingers. :eek:

    i have no idea what you're talking about. anyways, its 14-21 days. its not 14th-21st of october.

    paulshaqz got his in about 1 week, so there is good possibility AT&T is just covering their butts in case there is a shortage

    14-21 days is the same thing as saying it will ship between October 14th-21st since we both ordered on October 1st.

    At checkout I was quoted 21-28 business days. It even says so in the confirmation email I received from AT&T after I placed my order.
