    I, along with 2 other members in my family got unlucky and were only able to order our phones once the first stock had run out and they changed it to a "Ships by July 2nd" ship date. I ordered after the site and everything had reflected this, so I know that I didn't slip by and make it onto the first shipment with the other first 600,000 people.

    I am happy to report that 2 of the 3 lines, as of about an hour ago (been checking regularly daily) is now prepared for shipment. Looks like anyone who is stuck with us is gonna be getting their phones early!

    So check your order status if you have a late ship date and see if the status has changed!!

    I'm not surprised given the number of cancelled preorders. So many people ordered more than one accidentally that I'm sure Apple had many more on hand than they expected.

    My order also changed to "prepared for shipment". Hopefully this means I will get it next week. Ordered at 7:47 PM PDT or about 5 minutes after I placed the order for my wife's phone which is sitting in front of me right now!

    I ordered 6/15 at 8:10 PM PDT. Still shows:

    Ships: By July 2nd
    Delivers: Jul 6 - Jul 8

    I wish it would ship out early but it probably won't. My AppleCare came last week and my bumper is delivering tomorrow.

    Man I hope their computers are just going down the list by time and moving up orders to earlier shipment slots...if so I'm 11 minutes behind you in ordering...that's what like 1.2 million iPhones? No biggie ;)

    You said your AppleCare was delivered last week? I ordered mine in the same cart with my iPhone 4 and I haven't gotten mine, should I be worried? Apple Support says my order is "In Process" and I haven't been able to get a hold of a live person so I hope my order is all ok.

    Well my AppleCare came via FedEx at 11 AM on Fri Jun 18th. It prepared for shipment literally within a few hours of ordering. You might want to call about your situation but I'm sure they're running out of packaged AppleCare because of the demand and are just getting those boxes together. As long as you have it ordered along with your iPhone I've been told in the past by Geniuses that you're covered by AppleCare before the physical box arrives at your address. The box really doesn't do anything as far as I know.

    So does anyone have any idea when these are going to arrive? I sold my iPhone on eBay and have to mail it out and will be without a phone until the new one arrives. I had planned on driving to the nearest Apple store to pick one up since I didn't think these would ship so soon and if I was able to pick one up I would cancel my order with Apple. So now I'm wondering how long I'll go without a phone. It'll be odd since I've had a phone for close to 10 years now.

    Mine too says prepared for shipment, I ordered mine around 8:30pst on June 15. I just went through all this with my iPad last month, and remembered it shipped about 12hours or so after it went to "prepared for shipment" it then took about 3 days for it to get here. So if it ships tomorrow, I'm guessing delievery by next Monday for me.

    Looks like a lot of us had the same thing happen. I ordered on pre order day, took all day to order and finally got an order in by 08:18 PM PDT, it said I'd get my order on the 24th but it got updated to July 2. Now it says "now prepared for shipment" I called Apple earlier to ask what this meant exactly, the gal couldn't tell me anything, I also have a bumper on the same order, I just got a tracking number for it today as well. Does prepared for shipment mean that actually have it ready to go out or what? Wonder how long it will be before it actually gets a tracking number assigned. Its fun being all excited about getting this isn't it! I have loved my 3G, can't wait for the 4 :)
