I didn't see anywhere for people who ordered through AT&T to post shipping updates, as I do for the other carriers. I ordered 9/9, but well after pre-orders went live, around 10:00am. I have been "preparing for shipment" since placing the order, which is apparently AT&T's "processing" lingo. My delivery window is October 28 - November 4. No movement so far.

Hopefully some others who ordered through AT&T are starting to see some movement.

Thanks for making this thread. I was thinking about doing it myself. Check my sig for details. I have a feeling we won't be seeing these unicorns for a few weeks at the earliest

I'm honestly considering cancelling my order. Probably will if I can find stock of either jet back or matte black in a store. I'm selling my phone to gazelle and only have until 10/14. My ship date is after that, but I thought I would have seen some sort of movement by now.

Stay strong iMan. If Jet Black is the iPhone you want, don't settle for second best. Trust. I'm dug into my fox hole as if I was on the western front in WW2. It's jet Black or nothing.

Ha, I hear you. I also just saw a photo of one in the wild with the exact setup I really want, jet black plus with a clear case. Hopefully not much longer.

Lots of planes flying into Louisville tonight with a few planes flying to Dallas. Some people should see a shipped status in the next 12 to 24 hours. Definitely a chance one of us gets a shipped status

Ordered 2 256 JB +'s at 3:01:29 ET on launch day. Ship dates of 9/30 to 10/7. They have been "preparing to ship" ever since.
I have seen a few reports of JB 256 +'s from ATT getting their dates pushed back by a month. I am quite concerned that will happen to me.

Did you order with Apple or AT&T?

My status hasn't changed for my JB + as well, still sits to ship on Oct 14 after I preordered about 11:57pm PST during preorder day, sigh.

I have learned my lesson in this process. AT&T blows when it comes to pre-orders for Apple products. I've talked to their customer service 3 times trying to get some sort of clarification but they keep their employees in the dark as well I would surmise. The ones I've talked to were really nice given the amount of calls about pre-orders though. My frustration builds when those who have ship dates way out from mine, who ordered from Apple, are getting a bump or delivered and I'm stuck in processing hell. Come on AT&T you can't truly be this incompetent.

Just got this text today and I can't tell if this means it's actually shipped or they're just trying to get me to trade in. My order still says processing with dates of 9/23-9/30 on att website. Anyone else get this?

Many people got the text. It's AT&T marketing, and does not mean your phone has shipped.

Maybe I should pony up for the 256gb, my 128gb Jet Black has an estimated ship date of 11/18-11/28. I ordered at the at&t store on 9/10.
