    I got online at 12:15 and processed my order on Apple ... it said it could not reach carrier for upgrade eligibility.

    I got my email an hour and a half later and I proceeded to continue with my purchase and at my checkout screen it does not sat Deliver the 21st. .......... It says "2 Weeks"

    Screw them ... I went right over to AT&T site and pre-ordered right away with a 21st delivery date!

    I went through the order process and got my reservation e-mail at 12:04 am PST.

    Still waiting to check out but expecting the 2 week or more shipping time now. Pretty disappointed about it, but oh well, what can you do? I guess I'll try to call Apple tomorrow and see what they say.

    I got the same reservation email and checked out and saw 2 week delivery. Not a big deal. I'd rather order though apple than AT&T incase any issues come up. Easier to exchange (for a brand new phone instead of one from a black box) and full refund if I decide not to keep.

    All iPhones can be exchanged at the Apple store regardless where you get it from. So as long as I get it on launch day I could Care Less where it comes from as long at it's on my doorstep next Friday!

    I am guessing the "ships within 2 week" crowd will have their phones delivered on 9/21. It is Apples way of covering their a$$ in case something happens.

    I could be wrong, but in all my years getting iPhones I have have not seen per-order ship dates pushed back 2 weeks in a half hour.

    Too funny. Exactly what's happening in this case. Might have to show it to Apple.

    I could not take the chance since the AT&T one said will deliver by 9-21

    Hope your right though cause this would be nuts to go from delivered on 9-21 to 2 weeks out in like 30 minutes.

    I friggin HATE dealing with this crap every year ... why can't they EVER get this right.

    Yes, except they replace with a phone from one of their black boxes and not from a brand new sealed one. Genius brought out a brand new sealed one to exchange and realized I had purchased from AT&T so he took the sealed box back and gave me one of their iPhones from their generic black boxes. Probably not a big deal to you but that kinda bugged me. lol

    Depends on when your reservation went through. I got the email just now and it still lists 21st delivery.

    Same thing here.

    During Data Plan selection is showed Sept 21.

    Now, at the end, it says "Ship: Available to ship: 2 weeks" with a greyed-out option "Pick up: Visit an Apple Retail Store starting 9/21".

    ----------

    On my order status it stated "To ensure iPhone delivery priority, please complete your order . . ."

    It doesn't matter whether you place the order through Apple, AT&T, or Verizon - they are all fulfilled by Apple, just like in years past. I figure those of us who received the 2 weeks notice on the Apple site will still get our phones on 9/21.

    Even though it says Sept. 21 until all the way at the end at which point it says 2-weeks, did you guys place the order (and then figure it out later)? Or is it better to hold-off on it until it's figured out?

    Not sure how to proceed at this point.

    ----------

    Keep us updated.

    I'll try to call them too. Although I don't imagine getting through will be easy.

    Let me correct what I said earlier, it's not just not easy - it's impossible.

    Getting the same "high volumes we cannot take your call" message.

    Did you already put your order through? Or should I hold off?
