    Hard to imagine that after a full day of Pre-Orders you can still go online apple store and order a phone for Oct 14th Ship Date...I Guess there was no benefit to ordering early? Crazy to me that they have this much inventory for a pre-order. What a great company - Never going to use Verizon again for ordering , the only reason I did is because Apple's was down - anyone with similar experience canceling Verizon order and re-doing it with Apple?

    Lol its pretty amazing that they have a Oct 14th ship date still! I am shocked by how good Apple is at managing inventory - and usually you are prompted before ordering exactly the ship date so it could change at any moment but usually not while you are placing an order

    ----------

    I'm pretty sure the ship date has to change soon people have been ordering this phone all day

    In every other launch country though the 4S has been pushed to 1-2 weeks for shipping. I'm glad I stayed up and got my order in.

    Well Canada for sure since that's where I ordered mine from...the UK one is 1-2 weeks as well, and France and Germany. And since Japan doesn't have it available through the Apple store online, that's 4/6 launch countries that have it being delayed.

    BTW, I just checked and the Australian store also has it listed at 1-2 weeks. So that makes the total 5/6 countries.

    Oh definitely, as long as you got your order in before they ran out of their first batch, you're good to go.

    I should have ordered last night, but I was still contemplating what to do. It's 1-2 weeks now.
