I noticed that there were no forums for those who had made a late order for a 7 Plus in Jet Black, so I'm creating this for all of you that have. This order was made through AT&T, by the way I submitted my order on October 11, 2016 at around 4:30 PM for a 256GB Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus. My expected ship dates are Dec. 21-Dec. 29, 2016. Hoping it doesn't take this long for AT&T to get it to me. If you'd like to share your order history and/or updated information on the progress of your order, make sure to list your order date alongside its estimated shipping dates. Keep reading for a funny story: I initially preordered an iPhone 7 Plus Black 256GB model on Septmeber 15 at around 5 PM with estimated ship dates in mid-October, so it came as a surprise when it arrived 19 days early on Septemeber 26. After having the phone for a week, I decided I wanted to exchange it for a new (NON-EXPLOSIVE) Galaxy Note 7. I made the exchange Monday, October 3. After having and loving the Note 7 for a week, new updates to the explosion fiasco proved the issue had not been resolved and my phone could very well be affected. So, yesterday, I decided to replace it and order, yet again, another iPhone 7 Plus. JUST MY LUCK So, as you now understand the frustration, feel free to enlighten me with your own stories and provide me with your, hopefully improved, shipping dates for the Jet Black Plus models. It can't possibly take Apple THIS long to get these phones out....Right?!? If so, won't it be a merry Christmas for me!!
