    My understanding has been FRT = freight = shipping. I've always viewed them both as an on or off kind of thing. They are either both saying "Shipped" meaning its actually in a truck moving to your store, or they are not.

    I believe that the first item stands for "Freight", which is not being charged on these backorders (at least mine was not). The second item is your iPhone, and a FedEx tracking number will appear in the last column when it has been shipped.

    :eek: IE???

    FRT means freight (that stays backordered until your item ships)
    PHONE is your phone. If it switches to 0, that means your type of phone (i.e. 16GB white, 8GB, whatever) is in the warehouse, but it doesn't guarantee that you will be receiving your phone shortly.

    One thing to note is that there's a delay between how fast it ships and how fast AT&T updates the site. I looked at the FedEx tracking and my phone had shipped 5pm CST (3pm PST), and AT&T's site updated to tell me at 7pm PST.
