    Apple Insider has posted an image of an email supposedly being sent from apple to several people who ordered iPhones early, and it says that their initial delivery date was wrong and that they will indeed get the phone on launch day. Not sure if I can beleive this, though it's being reposted on pcmag, and gizmodo as well

    Can anyone confirm actually getting this email? I'd beleive it if a macrumors member can say they've received it.

    I received this email. However, it was 12 hours after I had preordered.

    Edit: I got a reserved confirmation to complete my order because servers were busy with my carrier.

    I actually received it. However I am a person who got the "reserved" email because they couldn't confirm my account with AT&T. Then when I finally could complete my transaction the dates slipped. But by r next morning they updated my shipping and sent me that email. I dont know of anyone who didn't have the reserved issue getting the email.

    Does the email apply to people that ordered within the first few hours, or first day? I ordered through Apple, but I ordered late Friday night. I think by the time I got around to finishing the order, it was nearly midnight. I can only assume I have to wait 2-3 weeks :rolleyes:

    I ordered by 12:12 am according to the time stamp on the reservation email. My email to finish my transaction came at 1:10 am which I did. Final confirmation email came at 1:16 am.Then the next day (i thought it was morning but i was wrong) the email bumping up shipping showed at 1:32 pm.

    I ordered a Black 32GB AT&T from the apple.com on my computer at 1:04 PST. On the checkout screen it said 9/21, but then when I completed my order it said 2 week shipping.

    My order still says shipping in 2 weeks with a delivery date of 10/5. No luck here :-(

    I received my reservation from apple to complete my order at 12:30am PT. Completed order at 1:30am PT. At the time it showed ships 2 weeks.

    Next morning at 10:30am, I checked my status and It showed delivers 9/21.

    At 1:30pm (12 hours later), I received the email from apple saying my ship date has been moved up.

    Thanks for the info guys. From everything I've seen so far, it looks like the cut off for reservations or purchases going through is about 3:45am EST. Missed it by 9 minutes thanks to the stupid shipping address issue. Oh well.

    Still keeping fingers crossed that I can squeak in on launch day. Not so much because I HAVE to have it on launch day, but because if I knew it was coming on 9/21 I could stop checking the forums and get on with my life. It's the not knowing (I just can't really believe the Oct 5 date, so as far I'm co concerned, I just don't know when I'll get mine) that is the worst part.

    OP, I had a shipping address issue as well. How did you resolve yours?

    I changed my address on my account, but it wouldnt update. I gave up and just left the bad address in there. I was able to change the shipping address online the next day.

    I ordered at 7:45 AM CST and still show 10/5 as my delivery date. I don't expect it to change, but will be pleasantly surprised if it does. :)
