    I ordered my iPhone at 4AM EST last night from AT&T, and just logged on to AT&T's website to check my order status. One section says the order is processing, but another section says it's backordered. I'm guessing everything is fine and it's just saying this because it's a preorder, but I still wanted to check.

    Is this what everyone else's order says on AT&T?

    I suspect they don't have a "preorder" status built into the system and just use "backordered" in its place.

    OMG! It happens every year the same way.

    So is anyone else seeing the same screen?

    Yes, I'm seeing that exact same thing. It's normal.

    If you call the number listed there and go through the prompts to get an order status update by phone, it'll tell you that your preorder has been received and is in the warehouse awaiting the shipment date.

    YES! This is how it is. There is no PREORDER status so they use BACKORDERED. RELAX!!!

    Essentially they DON'T have the phones in the warehouse so backordered would be the correct status.

    As long as you get the confirmation e-mail stating the expected delivery date is 10/14 you're good. Over the years I've learned the minutia surrounding the data pertaining to the new iPhones and their delivery, is just noise. I'd simply trust the initial e-mail you received. I don't see this being a big cluster-you-know-what like the i4, despite the initial hiccup last night I believe everyone will get their i4S orders on the first day.

    My email confirmation didn't have an expected delivery date, though it did say the 14th when I checked out. My order status screen is identical to that posted, except for the type (white, 32gb).
