    OK, so the first batch of pre-orders were shipped on the 15th and are scheduled to arrive the 17th...weather UPS will hold them until the 19th idk.

    Recently a lot of people have been wondering why there orders still say ready for shipment...here is why: It's obvious! All remaining Pre-orders, as long as they are made today will ship tomorrow on the 17th, and that's right you guessed it, arrive on the 19th as planned!

    You see apple shipped the first batch out in a huge ups cargo plane...the next one leaves tomorrow! So if you want your 3GS in by the 19th ORDER NOW! Im going to go ahead and say that "Pre-order now and get it June 19." line of text will disappear tomorrow and be replaced with a later date.

    Just makes sense and logically fits the timeline! ahhh cant wait!

    Pics or it isn't happening. If it says "delivery By the 19th" then its either tomorrow, Thursday or.....the 19th. If it's early - well post an unboxing thread and gloat. Otherwise - live your life knowing all will be well by Friday.

    Good God - my kids have more patience for Christmas than most of the people on here.

    I know the toilet can be referred to as the "thinking chair", but if you push too hard it can result in threads like this one. Probably sounded genius at the time...

    LOL - a less diplomatic response than mine, but I was thinking along the same lines as you!

    Just go over to the "I got a tracking number" thread or whatever it is called. There are hundreds of posts just like that one. People downright arguing that they know the while logistics of the shipments.

    Not trying to put down anyone for coming up with these ideas, it is just amusing to watch.

    Well that was...tactful? Although his thought doesn't have "insiders" backing it up, lord knows we should be supporting logical thoughts on this board especially with the onslaught of those thinking NOT so logically...:rolleyes:

    I do think this is something everyone should consider because after all it does make sense...

    I'm amazed at how many teenagers flood this site with useless threads. I guess I should start a thread filled with nothing but speculation and junk too

    You can't "cancel" your order with AT&T, you have to refuse shipment and from what I was told they will charge you a 10% restocking fee for doing it. If if it comes down to it though and they don't deliver on the 19th, I have a phone waiting for me at Best Buy and I will contest the restocking fee considering I never even opened the box.

    I'd really like to do this, but I think I'd be screwing myself considering I'm an upgrade.

    In my experience, on more than one occasion with UPS "Delivery Date: June 19" has turned into "Delivered: June 23". FedEx is a little better about on time deliveries, but not by much. Unless it is shipped priority, "Estimated Delivery Date" is just that...an estimate.

    I hope to get it friday, but I am prepared for monday.

    Are people seriously cancelling orders over not knowing on Tuesday what time their phone will arrive on Friday?

    Did you call to do this and is the Apple order guarenteed?

    I called AT&T to cancel and the Apple page still said the phone will arrive on the 19th. It wont screw up your upgrade.

    Whoa who called it, looks like common sense prevailed on this one.

    Check the Apple site, it no longer says delivered by the 19th! All that's left now is to wait for our tracking numbers! (seeing as they should be shipping them any time now)
