    Dear ,

    Thank you for ordering iPhone 4 from AT&T. Your device has been reserved. Today was the busiest sales day in our history. Because of the incredible volume of orders we received, there is a slight chance that some customers may receive their devices between June 25 and June 28. Rest assured, we are doing all we can to ship devices to customers for delivery on the 24th. You do not need to take any action at this point.

    As soon as your device ships, we will send an email confirmation including a tracking number for your convenience. In the meantime, you can check the status of your order on our website at any time by clicking here or by calling our automated system at 1-877-782-8870.

    I feel for 'ya. I was ready to click Purchase in my AT&T cart but I couldn't get past their shipping. I went back to Apple's site and reviewed this forum to get additional details. I hope it works out for you.

    How sticky of a situation will I be in if I order both places? Apple store seems to be working now and I don't trust my AT&T order placed at 1:45PST today.

    I ordered at 6 a.m I think that should be sufficient for a 24th delivery.

    I love how they said the 25-28th...there's a Saturday and Sunday in the middle of that, meaning you'll get it on the 25th OR the 28th (or even later)! Love AT&T bull$h!t! And no, I don't believe they'll pay for Saturday delivery.

    I ordered mine at 6PM Eastern Time. If this means I'll get it a few days late I won't mind, but I'd prefer to have it on launch.

    Well drats...I haven't received email yet saying it will be delayed but I ordered at 3:00pm. But, I was able to upgrade my other line at apple.com, so that one should come on the 24th.

    That's better than my e-mail:

    "Unfortunately, we were either unable to verify the information you provided or you have exceeded the number of lines of service that we allow customers to purchase online. As a result, your order has been canceled."

    That's around when I ordered mine. (2:43 pm EDT). I'm hoping to receive it the 24th of June, if not I will not get all wound up about it if I receive a little later.

    Yep

    I just received this email a few minutes ago.

    I preordered around 2pm CST at an AT&T store. I did delivery to my home..

    Ill watch the order status. If it doesnt arrive on the 24th then I will buy one at Apple (I have a store reservation at Apple) and then just cancel my AT&T order.

    Do you guys think apple had more for the demand? Meaning they won't have to move your ship date til later until after they have sold a few for a few days

    I think that was AT&T's way of saying "We don't know." They may have been so swamped that they may not know for a day or two who is getting them on the 24th. So the questionable ones get an e-mail so AT&T has the "we told you" excuse already lined up.

    I ordered mine early. I had zero problems getting it ordered. I have not received any email, but I do have a printed receipt.

    Same here. I pre-ordered mine at 2:00 AM PDT. :D

    I have a printed receipt, too. I hate to use more paper than necessary, but this one is justifiable. ;)
