    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!!

    I didn't think it would take them this long either but here I am still waiting for mine. Ordered 9/9 at 2:24am CDT, was given a ship date of 10/18-10/31. Definitely not getting it early and am starting to wonder if I will even get it within the projected window so good luck to you sir...

    Yes, I was. The Note 7, had it not been defective, would have very well been the best mobile phone of 2016. Best screen resolution and camera put into a smartphone. No denying that fact. The phone is gorgeous. That being said, I also love the iPhone and am happy it's on its way.

    I decided way too late to order, ordered on 09/23 through T-Mobile for the Jet Black 7+ 128 GB. It's giving me a window of 11/15-12/12, and while I hope it won't be that long - at this stage I'm super pessimistic I get it before December.

    Gah!

    Hmm... I'd be very surprised if you get it within that time frame!!

    Agreed. It's becoming more and more likely from what's being said, in my opinion.

    ordered 9-30 (way late) through Apple, 7+ JB sprint 128gb

    estimation of nov. 22 - dec 6
    with the iUP program

    had a 7 JB but decided i wanted the + instead (big mistake),
    it's ok though. had i ordered the + to begin with, i probably wouldn't be waiting now but who knows

    we continue to wait ..

    side note: does the carrier matter, as far as possibly getting it sooner?, just a thought

    I ordered a iPhone 7 Plus Jet Black 256GB for AT&T on September 15th. Stuck with a delivery date of November 18th. Hopefully it's sooner.

    Yea, I've heard T-Mobile usually gets the phones out the quickest and most conveniently compared to the other carriers. So I'd expect them to get the JB's shipped/released first.

    Not sure if y'all have been hanging around here lately but Target has been the place to go for getting the +. I recommend you start checking their site in the morning.

    I found my 128GB JB last week and they even did a 24 hour hold for me when I called.

    All of my local Target stores say "sold out" online... Not sure if that's totally indicative of their supply or stock.

    Same here... Hopefully mid November at the latest??? I know that's wishful thinking!!!

    I'd say just straight through T Mobile but I'm not for sure.

    Tmobile is the best imo. Version is money hungry and overages hungry. Att isn't that great. I've had no problems with tmobile kinda high priced but unlimited no throttled data

    Yeah tmobile doesn't have verizon coverage. I wish they did though. No one would stay with Verizon. I guess they are a hit or miss.

    Great news!! My Jet Black 256GB iPhone 7 Plus was ordered October 11th 2016 and was given an estimated ship date of December 21st thru December 29th, 2016. However this morning, I received updated shipping information from AT&T stating that my new ship dates are November 30th, 2016 through December 7th, 2016.

    For all of you that have ordered a Jet Black Plus, I have a feeling your phones will be arriving sooner than expected, as I'd previously anticipated.

    Leave your ship dates down below alongside your order date so we can get an idea of just how soon these bad boys will get out to us impatient customers!!

    Similar story as yours - I returned a Note 7 and had them order me an iPhone 7+ 128gb in Jet Black on 10/9.

    Initial ship date range was 12/19-12/27. Just got an email this morning saying the date was moved up to 11/28-12/5. Obviously hoping it ships sooner than that, but I'll keep an eye on Apple store inventory and see if I can't snag one even sooner.
