    I ordered from the online Apple Store on the 19th, it was shipped on the 22nd and the current status is:

    06/23/09 03:07 pm
    Held At Sort Facility
    Anchorage, AK, US

    I paid for the 2-3 day delivery and it's still scheduled to be here tomorrow before 10:30am. Hope it makes that...

    Took 3 days until it was prepared to ship and shipped out 5 days after ordering. For some reason Apple hasn't charged my debit card yet. It was registered as a hold for the first few days after ordering, but that has disappeared. Free iPhone? (one can only hope)

    I ordered mine the 21st and it's still hasn't shipped. I paid extra for the faster shipping (2-3 days). I doubt I will get it by Friday.

    I ordered mine on Monday and it just this morning changed from "not yet shipped" to "prepared to ship." Does anyone know if this means it will ship out today?

    Mine also just changed to "Prepared to Ship". I called them about it and they stated this are arriving from over seas. They must not ship daily from over seas? Let's hope I can receive it by Friday since they are about 15 hours ahead of me.

    I paid extra for the shipping too so it looks like we will both be getting ours soon.

    Well, called Apple to check on my order status. Long story short, I called Monday and explained some of the difficulties I had ran into trying to get the phone. The Apple rep stated that he would upgrade me to priority overnight shipping due to the troubles. Decided to call today and ask why I am just now seeing prepared for shipment and was told that the guy Monday was wrong and that overnight shipping is not possible since it was coming from overseas. The rep I spoke to tonight was very apologetic and waived all shipping charges (thanks Ted!) but did inform me that I probably would not be receiving my phone until next week. Really upset since I had one in my hands Saturday and the at&t store in town said they weren't allowed to sell to employees even though I see plenty of employees with new iPhones.


    I guess the short story was still kind of long.

    Yah I am trying to be optimistic, but I know the odds are against me. As soon as I have the tracking number then I will know for sure. But China is about 15 hours ahead of me. So maybe, just maybe I have a chance. :rolleyes:

    reordered 21st, changed to prepared for shipment today.
    dying for a tracking number, but i guess the extra wait will make the box opening more exciting. haha.

    It will be the 4th day before I get my tracking number. It seems like it takes 3 business days before the phone arrives. That being said, I won't get mine till Monday. :(
