3 WEEKS!? :eek:

Most places around here have a phone in-hand or within a week tops. Eep.

Call them and tell them you want to switch to the 32GB waitlist. What's the problem?
I dont want the list to be longer if its a separate, or to move me farther back if its the same one.

Maybe I'll stick to 16GB and just unload on to my mac more often, put an extra $100 in my pocket.

Also if they allowed me to be put onto a priority list yesterday, but plan on wiping them out by this weekend...what happens if i dont get a message to come get it by the end of this weekend, I'm on my own?

I also ordered from apple.com on 7/23. Just got my order acknowledgment e-mail. States will ship 8/13 and receive by 8/18. Hopefully will come a bit ahead of that!

I did the same thing, waited for the white phone and just ended up getting the black one since the "later in the year" announcement came out. Closest place to get an iphone for me in a store is 2 hours so I just ordered it online on the 23rd with the same 13th and 18th time frame for delivery.

Since they don't charge you till they ship it I'm just going to keep checking the apple store randomly and maybe I'll end up getting it in store if I'm lucky and just cancel the online order.

Is the 3 week online period accurate or is there buffer room in there, some people said it came a week earlier than projected

It's usually the maximum projection. Some get delivered in 2 AFAIK.

Exactly the same as me. Hoping it arrives by the 13th because I'm going on vacation on the 14th.

There aren't any walk-ins here in MN. AT&T is shipping 7-14...14 for the 16gb but if you want a 32gb they are shipping around 7 days.

Well, I canceled my online order today. I went to the local Apple Store (Deer Park, IL) to see if they had the new iMacs and they happened to have a bunch of 16gb iPhone 4's in stock. Needless to say I picked one up.

Never did get around to looking at the iMacs :)

Should have went to att.com...

Especially if you're getting a 32gb. Check out the thread, it's why I did.

People that ordered on 7/23 through att.com are getting shipping info yesterday and today. I ordered mine on 7/26 so I hope to get it early next week :D

Apple's website is slow then. I ordered mine from AT&T on the 23rd and it should ship within 2 days, if that.
