I sincerely hope this is the final nail in AT&T's coffin. How many times is AT&T going to screw up before Apple wakes up and realizes exclusivity with them isn't worth it. I preordered Saturday evening. Whenever I check my order status online, it says the order isn't recognized by the system. So, I called today, and a customer service representative said that my number port was waiting on manual intervention. I said "oh, so Verizon is holding things up?" To which he replied, "no, it's on our end, we have to manually intervene with the port". I explained my displeasure that it wasn't an automatic process, and that someone has let the ball drop on this. He said that my number was to be ported at 6:43 this evening. He also said to call back later in the evening to make sure the port was successful and my phone was shipped. I called back later this evening, and the customer service lady told me that my port went through, but my phone would not ship until Friday morning. I explained that preorders are supposed to ARRIVE on Friday and not ship on Friday, and that other people ordering from AT&T are already receiving tracking numbers. She said that the phone is not due out until Friday, and that's why they cannot ship it until Friday morning. So, it looks like I'm going to have to wait until Monday to receive it. Screw AT&T. I should have ordered from Apple directly.
