    I ordered my White Iphone 3gs on the 14th at 8 pm online, and received an email saying it would arrive 7-14 days later ( instead of the 19th ). Well my phone just got shipped today, and am receiving it tomorrow!

    I don't think they lied, it just wasn't guaranteed.

    I think "lied" is a little strong for that statement. However congrats on your phone arriving tomorrow.

    Lying is usually a bad thing. This is not. This is "SURPRISE! With love, AT&T." to you.

    I'm not fairing so well though, I ordered mine in-store on the 14th some time in the afternoon. No such luck for me. :p

    daaamn, your hella lucky. i ordered the 14th in the morning at my local ATT store and my status is still stuck at "In Progress." But that could mean anything because people that ordered theirs the 11th or earlier has the same status.

    did you sign up as a new customer? or are you doing an upgrade? i read in one of the threads that att is processing new customers first with overnight shipping, while those upgrading are left with 2day shipping.

    AT&T was just trying to cover their A and manage expectations. They may have gotten a larger shipment from Apple then expected and were able to fulfill more orders. I'm glad because I ordered mine on the 13th at 4:38am and it's set for delivery tomorrow. I guess people would have called them liars if they said it was to ship by the 18th even if you ordered on the 17th and then couldn't commit to that. Sigh :p

    nice...I opted out of pre-order because of this issue(I thought they'd say "coming in a while" after launch....we'll see if the gamble paid off!

    WOOT go AT&T i just got my tracking number and I ordered on the 16th:D:

    Bad Fed Ex. their website says it won't be delivered until the 22nd that's with overnight delivery:mad::mad::mad:

    If the iPhone left TN, at 0300hrs, you would think it could make it to the Ohio River by 1600hrs. I know I could.

    I ordered a white 32 on June 15th via AT&T online to home. I did this through the Microsoft CashBack. It was a phone update so don't know if the cash back will work or not but its worth a try.

    Mine is in Columbus according to Fedex.com, still has a date of the 22nd. The iPhone is only an hour from my house, so it better get here today.

    Yeah well ordering early doesn't do much with the idiots at ATT.

    I ordered on the 10th. And I got there in line today and they informed me that they didn't have mine. So I got up early for their "Guarantee" and got jack **** for it.

    Go ATT.

    Go DIE.

    Did they send you an e-mail saying it was at the store?

    I ordered on the 14 th. It has not shipped yet. I went to AT&T this morning and the manGer said I can get one now and cancel the order when it arrives. So now I have a 3gs 32g before my order was even shipped. Best part is I was third in line at AT&T and was out the door by 7:20. I did not get there till 6:20.

    I ordered in-store on the 13th. It was delivered to my local at&t store yesterday and I have yet received a call or email telling me that it's ready to be picked up.

    I ordered mine from Apple a couple days ago. Doesn't look like I'll be getting it anytime soon seeing as people who ordered days before me haven't even had theirs shipped out.
    Apple's site does say that I could get it between tomorrow and a week from today. I wonder if that will hold true.

    EDIT: right after I posted this, another check to my order revealed that the new expected delivery date was between Jun 22-26 instead of Jun 20-26. Interesting...
