    All of that is moot. Apple has put a hold on all iPhone 4 deliveries until the 24th. It may even come to pass that order tracking shows your iPhone is at the local UPS or FedEx depot or even "out for delivery," before the 24th. That is true but it will not get delivered until the 24th unless the driver for your neighborhood's route is aching to get fired.

    It's not unheard for some people to get theirs delivered before launch day.

    It's not unheard of to find a four leaf clover or a three-eyed fish. That doesn't mean it's a common occurrence or likely to happen. I wouldn't bet on it being delivered before the 24th. That's all I'm saying.

    I'd be happy as a pig in **** to have a shipment status - that would mean I was golden. 24th is fine for me, to hope for early is just too much !!!

    Didn't Apple do something like this with the 3G or 3GS? They told the carriers they were not allowed to deliver before the release date.

    I think people's package tracking was even messed up cause they weren't updating the info but everyone got their phones on the release date.

    Good news for you. :D

    Mind sharing what time you placed your order and whether you did so online or in store?

    They did. On my 3gs ups box it has 6/19 (or whatever the release day was) written on it. They shipped them overnight 3 days before release but it was held in Louisville, KY (for me, I live in memphis) until the day before release.

    I am a bit surprised it is prepared for shipment already, but I guess Apple has to start early to wade through 600,000 orders.

    I got mine in at 5:28 in the morning on the 15th. And it was weird because i tried for a while and could not get a order in but when i put in a bumper order first, the iphone 4 was already in my cart, I assume from the past failed attempts. So i checked out... I know its not a big deal but its cool to see some progress...

    Thanks for the info! Keep us updated. I can't wait for mine to be "prepared for shipment" even though I know it won't change anything. I just like progress. :D

    "Prepared for Shipment", especially this early, is actually pretty big news. But it's a case of "Good News... Bad News".

    The good news:
    - your order has taken a major step forwards. Apple has charged your card, and put your order into the shipping "queue".

    The bad news:
    - You can't cancel your order any more
    - You still won't get it before the 24th. Apple is very good at making sure the product doesn't get on delivery trucks in our neighborhoods until the morning of the 24th

    Obviously, the "bad news" isn't a consideration at all if you're truly expecting an iPhone delivery on the 24th, so all you're left with is Good News.


    We'll be hearing people complaining and whining that they haven't transistioned to "Prepared for Shipment" in a few days (I haven't yet). Consider yourself lucky.

    I think they do that to ensure delivery on launch day. They ship it our a few days early to allow for any unseen circumstances. However, they hold it when it comes to the "stop" before yours.

    Shipping Address Changes

    Can I change the shipping address if the order has not been Processed for Shipping? The original order said you can only ship to the AT&T billing address. Any order slowdowns by changing?
