    So much for people ordering online and getting them fast. Looks that way with all accesories too.

    I just saw that. F you Apple.

    Well, I guess I'm heading to the Apple store early tomorrow AM. Or maybe the ATT store since it's on the way.

    That information will be updated nightly. I take that to mean after the west coast stores have closed for the day.

    too bad they don't close until midnight. I am sure they will out by then.

    If you go to the page, under the first step of "How to get your iPhone", it says to check nightly at 9PM. Although, because it is the launch night of the iPhone, i'm guessing the information there is wrong

    Looks like this has been updated for east coast stores. I know where I'm going tomorrow morning.

    I went ahead and ordered mine online. I figure hopefully it will ship faster than that. Btw did anyone else see the bluetooth headset had the same ship date.

    buying iphone off apple.com

    I purchased the iPhone off apple.com and i think it went through. I am just hoping that i don't get a email saying that there out of stock and my order is on hold. Do you think they would allow you to buy the phone and then say there out of stock?

    Yeah, if the computers can't keep up. Remember that orders take about fifteen minutes or so to be completely in the system, so I'd check it later on tonight.

    Hope you get your iPhone ASAP.

    I bought one online too.

    I'm abroad and missed the fun at the stores today--probably for the best.

    Sure it sucks to wait two - four weeks (which I think it will be the full month.)

    But, it's not the end of the world. Ironically, while I normally buy Apple products because I _want_ them, I am in desperate need of a new cell phone, so the wait kinda stinks.

    Not the end of the world though...

    Just canceled my order.

    My spouse, God bless her, picked two iPhones up less than an hour ago...

    Naah, bet the under. Remember that message when you first got into apple.com/store last night: "Limited number available online". Read: there is a finite number - a number they have already figured into their distribution plans. And the old "2 to 4" weeks is just a blanket statement to prevent consumers from being disappointed if it doesn't ship immediately. I fully expect to get the "Item Shipped" email from Apple next week, with standard delivery about 7/12.

    That's my guess... 7/12.
