I have seen too questions on the other two AT&T pre-order status threads asking if someone ordered through premier or not. So let's start one for the rest of us. Who aren't premier.'

I'll start.

When: 12:15AM PST
Confirmation: 3:15AM PST
Location: Bay Area
Model: iPhone 6+
Capacity: 16GB
Color: Silver
Current Status: preparing to ship
Est. Ship Date: 10/2-10/13
Notes: I got the second email re-affirming that AT&T still expects to ship my order on the dates they initially provided.

*Feel free to copy the template above and replace with your relevant information.

There was ZERO benefit to Premier orders. In fact, I got fewer e-mail messages that non-Premier orders. Didn't get a shipped order until a few hours before phone was delivered. It was shipped days earlier.

Check out the AT&T iPhone 6 Plus pre-order thread. I have not seen a single non-premier pre-order ship. All the ones with "I got a tracking number" are premier.

Hello, I'm Nano and I'm a non-Premiere alcoholic.

Check out the AT&T iPhone 6 Plus pre-order thread. I have not seen a single non-premier pre-order ship. All the ones with "I got a tracking number" are premier.
I'm non-premier, ordered at about 12:40am PDT on 10/12, 64GB Gold 6+, phone was delivered on launch day in the early afternoon, after an initial estimated ship date of 10/13 - 10/23, later revised to 10/2 - 10/13.

There really is no rhyme or reason to AT&T's processing methodology. In fact, if anything, the premier customers seem to have been given the runaround, and those who ordered before the official 12 midnight PDT pre-order start seem to have been pushed back in the ordering queue.

That may be true, but I think we should spread it out so people can find the relevant information without sifting through the thread.

My account is premier but I have no idea what that means lol. Can someone explain? I know I am unable to order from Apple.com.

Basically you get discounts and stuff because your account is associated with a business or company or such. Also, it seems you get priority in pre-orders. That is what I have seen in numerous AT&T pre-order threads.

Yea me too. The thread for AT&T iPhone 6 Plus pre-orders is actually supposed to be for non-premier, but because it wasn't made clear in the title... all the premier people posted their info in it. There is actually a dedicated premier thread for AT&T iPhone 6 Plus pre-orders.

Although it's great to see some movement in the premier camp (it looked like they were getting shafted for a while), I'm hoping to see some shipping and tracking updates for us consumer customers.

Here's to us seeing our toys this week!

No emails, nothing what so ever!! I guess they're sending mines through a canoe. I can't even cancel my order or pick up a phone in store because there are only 3 apple stores on this island and everyone is sold out!! It makes no sense that I preordered and I have to wait this long. Hopefully it comes soon!!! I'm never ordering through AT&T ever again.

Wow I noticed you pre-ordered before midnight and got the confirmation before 3AM yet your ship date is 2 weeks after mine. What the heck?

It's pretty ridiculous. I've ordered through Apple before and it went smoothly idk why I don't even have mine yet :( I am a patient person but it just sucks to see others getting theirs already
