    I ordered a 32GB Black 3GS from the Apple Online store on Thursday July 2nd with 2-3 day shipping. It still hasn't shipped. Is this normal? The status has never said backordered and I was wondering if anyone else has experience a delay like this. Thanks for any thoughts.

    I ordered July 1 at 10AM and mine still hasn't shipped. Not backordered either. They just say that it takes 5-7 business days to ship. I called to see WTF was going on and they moved me up to 1 day shipping for free for my troubles.

    Not as drastic but I ordered July 5 at 11 AM EST and mine hasn't shipped. I've been phoneless for 3 days and counting so I'm anxiously awaiting a change in shipping status

    I placed an order on June 25 and it still hadn't shipped on July 1st so I cancelled it and drove to the Apple store 3 hours away.

    I would but I'm neither the primary account holder nor an authorized user.

    If it is stated that it ships in 5-7 days, you have no reason to complain if it does not ship before the 11th. You placed your order on July 2nd, so the 2nd + 7 days + 2 more for the weekend = a ship date of the 11th. Anything sooner is bonus. I does not matter that you paid for 2-3 day shipping, they still have to prepare your order, package it get it to the shipping department who will then ship it. That takes time, hence the 'ships in 5-7 days'.

    You paid for expedited shipping NOT processing. BTW you might need to add another day before it ships because of the holiday weekend, they may not have been processing orders on the 3rd.

    Don't complain and just wait. It'll come, I ran a shipping department for 3 years, I KNOW how this work. Take it from a subject matter expert.

    That depends on the company. Even if they do work on sundays in the warehouse, it still will not ship until later on Monday or whenever the UPS orders are sent out. Tuesday would be the first day in transit for the package if the ship date is monday. So five to seven business days is next monday to wednesday.

    I doubt it that they work Sundays. And they probably don't work Saturdays either.
