    I ordered mine from AT&T September 1st and received on the 2nd. If you can order from your carrier it's likely you will receive it quicker.

    I think it has to do with Customs clearance:confused:

    I've had delays like that on things at the border before, usually only puts it off by a day or two.

    I ordered the 16 gig. Didn't figure on needing 32 gig. Still hasn't done anything. Waiting for the shipment. Internet banking indicates the payment hold is there, but has not actually charged yet, just memo posted with a hold for the transaction amount. But still now shipping email! :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:


    Just have to hurry up.... and wait. Which I am no good at. Sigh!

    You're right. I called Fed ex and was told that it is indeed customs holding up clearance. I was also told it could take anywhere from a day to THREE MONTHS for certain items to clear.

    However the rep also said that this delay is not out of the norm and that if additional documentation was required they'd contact me or Apple.

    Has anyone else ordered an item from Apple shipping straight from the factory in China to a residence in Canada and encountered this clearance delay before?

    If so how long did it take to clear and were there any other problems?

    Ok here's another update.
    Apparently Fedex's tracking site doesn't update with all the details available.

    For future tracking try this site :

    http://smallbusiness.yahoo.com/r-packageTracker-s-fedex

    On this site it shows that my package has in fact been released from customs! On Fedex's normal tracking site it shoes no update besides the clearance delay from 12 hours ago.

    :D

    I think there's a bit of a misunderstanding about the free cases. Today is the last day you can buy the iPhone 4 and get a free case. I believe you still have 30 days to pick one.

    Regardless, Apple has stated they will still give you a case (I believe only the bumper now, no choice) if you call Applecare and tell them you have reception problems. So if you want a free bumper, even if you purchased your phone after Sept. 30, all you have to do is call Applecare.
