I ordered a 32gb iPhone 4 on Friday July 23rd and it says it will be shipped on August 13th and delivers August 18th. Is there a chance it will ship early if so how early?

I went by the AT&T store and they told me 7-10 days I felt like they were lying to me trying to get me to buy it from them, I don't see how they can get it faster than apple.

Walked into an Orange store on Tuesday 20th July (no prior reservation or pre-order), ordered and paid for the Orange contract and the iPhone, walked out of the store 25 minutes later with a 32GB iPhone 4. Boom.

I'd certainly hope you didn't need to reserve a month old product.


For me, about 45 minutes at an O2 store on 4th July - for a 32GB. Day after getting back from holiday - just noticed one in the store in town so bought one (having forgotten about the release).

I don't understand why so many people ordered. Surely quicker to just go buy from ATT/Apple, or from your network store in the UK?

Waited at the Apple Store in Brea Mall, California for 15 minutes on July 24, 2010. They told me that they started walkins yesterday ever since opening day. So passed by and got the wife one!

signed up for the priority list on 7/3 and finally got it 7/21. Took so long! you guys who are doing walk ins now don't know the pain of waiting!

wish they had cases there tho...really need to be careful with the glass on both sides.

I bought mine on the 23rd too. Fed up with waiting for the white one. I was told 7-14 working days. I just called AT&T yesterday to discuss a different matter and was told,"We will see you next week." "Pish, posh, my good man, I won't get that phone for weeks," asserted moi. "We have been seeing them come in in a working week, so I think we are going to be discussing your phone face-to-face sometime next week," quoth the AT&T man.

I am not betting the farm on it, but it might happen. If it doesn't I am not going to start whining about it, but I suspect that it will.

Took me about 15 mins :)

Walked into my local O2 shop on 18/07/10 and opened a second contract, had the phone in hand rather quickly. Wife loves her 'new' 3GS and the 4 suites me well.

I ordered a 32GB from AT&T Premier on Friday after giving up on waiting for white. The Premier website says 7-14 days, and that seems about right considering what I've seen on the order status thread.

I'm starting to think I made a mistake:mad:, I know none of my local stores have them I wonder why it would take so much longer for apple to ship it.

Ordered July 6th, said it would be shipped by the 27th, but shipped on the 23rd and I'm praying it will be here tomorrow (26th) with my 2-3 day shipping. Seems most people's are shipping before the expected date.

I also got my priority list e-mail that said I could come pick up my phone at the store on the 23rd, but my online order had already shipped so I couldn't cancel it to go grab one at the local store... Twas a but of a bummer.
