Verizon, my confirmation email is time stamped 2:02 (USA central time). I ordered via the Verizon iPad app. Full price purchase, with trade in section completed, and already on UnlimitedGo.

That is actually on par with how my iPhone 7Plus order played out. Around 20 minutes after preorder start, got the similar shipping timeframe, but the phone DID show up earlier.

My spot was reserved less than a minute after I opened the iPhone App at 02:03.

My order was completed several hours later at 05:40. So I choose 46+ minutes.

11/3 delivery :cool:

It would be nice if my shipping dates stick. The Apple App didn’t open up until 3:15am for me and I had an issue with Apple Pay saying my address was incorrect. I had to go back and use other payment option and process my cc that way.

I used my iPad Pro the app was down and Apple website was down I couldn’t even get it to come up at all 12 minutes after I picked up my android phone and sure enough I went straight to the Apple site I was able to order but I had to add all my info which now puts the phone here somewhere before the 24th, once before they did this with the estimates however they did ship on launch day so I’m still hoping

I got through quick and easy but really wanted in store pick up option. No stores in the area were offering it. I was bummed lol.

I work all day Friday and didn’t want the phone shipped, I’m weird like that I guess. So I didn’t order. I’m kinds happy though I saved a grand last night haha I must be getting old.

Same here with the address. My gf wanted one and our info is all correct so I believe it was a server error.

The store in the Apple Store app didn’t “open” for me until 3:07. Had my confirmation email by 3:11.

Wish you the best on that front.
I’ve read a few posts where the App Store apps didn’t open until xx:20+

Let me ask...did you wait for the queue to launch you into the order page or refresh the preorder page quite a bit?
Did it over and over for about 15 minutes. Got tired of waiting and went to apple. **** should have just woken up just morning and order off of at&t. Look like they actually have Nov 3 delivery dates.

The Apple store app wasn’t open until around 3:08 for me. I was going crazy. Double tap home and swipe up to force close is something that will now give me ptsd /s. I almost ordered from Verizon because I didn’t want to miss it.

Once I got in, I had my preselected configuration ready, but during check out it sold out at the store I had picked for pickup (Georgetown). Went back and found Bethesda Row has stock. All finished up by 3:15.

For curiosity, I tried again 15 min later to see what stock was and was surprised. Both space gray configurations had plenty of availability in the DC area for launch day pickup. Even at 730am they still do.

I found it strange. I was sitting in my kitchen with my iPad pro and my wife's iPad pro so I could try and facilitate 2 orders. App store came up in my iPad at 3:03 and I completed my order 3:04. I tried bringing up the app store on my wife's at the same time and it wouldn't come up. I went ahead and ordered her phone on my iPad and it completed at 3:05. I kept trying the app store on her iPad and it finally came up at 3:10. Both were on my wifi.
