    The Apple Store online said it will ship in 3 weeks. Do you really think I'll be waiting 3 weeks for it to ship? Are those estimates usually accurate?

    I can't wait to get my fingerprints all over that retina display. ;)

    It will most likely come in much sooner than that. I ordered my bumper from Apple and it was here in about a week, but the site said three weeks. When I ordered my iPhone 4 from AT&T, it shipped in three days. Good luck. Hope this helps.

    I keep checking with my local Apple and AT&T stores, yet they seem to always be out of stock. You would think by now supply caught up with the demand. Really sucks that even after a month from the iPhone 4 release date, we still can't just walk in and pick one up.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I don't have an Apple Store nearby. But the AT&T Store that I stopped at today said they haven't had any in stock since launch day.

    I have one of those Best Buys around with the mini Apple Store inside. I'll check there.

    I don't think so. Not from the Apple site anyway. My choices were: pick it up at an Apple Store, or have it shipped to my billing address. But I'm not on a family plan.

    I went to the AT&T store and they told me 7-14 business days. The guy did say that he would see me in the store next week (I am going to the store to activate and get another phone for my husband...so as soon as I get my iPhone I will be back in the store...that meant that the guy at the AT&T store believes that my phone will be in my hands sometime this week. He sounded serious about and I hope he is not just blowing smoke at me.

    It'll most likely be there before 3 weeks, probably around 1-2 weeks.

    Judging by your obnoxious typography, it seems like you're more excited about my iPhone 4 than I am.

    (Thanks for the help, everyone else.)

    I had the same experience... ATT reps are required to say 10-14 days, but he told me they are usually coming in by a business week. He said commonly, people who order on weekends get in the following monday. Luckily i ordered friday (I hope im lucky):p

    You can track your order you know...

    From what I've heard from people (and for my iPhone as well) it has been pretty much a week later when ordering from an ATT store. I ordered mine on a Tuesday and it arrived the following Wednesday - plus that was the 4th weekend so it included a lost day.

    Since SDAVE was so interested, I just wanted to let everyone know I cancelled my online order and picked one up today at Best Buy.

    I hope that is the case; I ordered mine on Friday through AT&T's online store, and I'd love to get it by the 2nd when I leave for vacation.
