    I have currently been waiting since the 30th and cancelled my apple website order and now I am getting extremely impatient and have heard that the wait for an iPhone through ATT fulfillment is faster. Thoughts??

    I broke down and ordered a 32GB from AT&T.com last Friday, July 2nd and the phone shipped today for delivery by tomorrow. A lot faster than Apple's vague "Ships in 3 Weeks."

    I'm thinking I probably missed the boat with the fast ATT shipments and if I switch from Apple to ATT, Apple will start shipping fast while ATT is slow to replenish... Tough call ;)

    this is what i worry about, i put the order in, my upgrade is gone for my wife and me and then I get the email tomorrow from apple telling me my phone. I hate to keep whining but looking for this phone is tiresome.

    Murphy's Law; I won't order one thru AT&T because I can almost guarantee myself that my Apple one will come in faster than my AT&T one. Like every time you switch lanes in traffic, the lane that you were previously in goes faster than the one you switched to.

    I had a great experience with AT&T. It couldn't have been easier and the people were very friendly considering the circus of idiocy going on around them at the time. I went to the store because it was "pre-order day" and their web site was a waste of time. They wrote it all down on paper, swiped my plastic through the old imprint machine and everything. Later that evening I got one email per order and the AT&T rep even texted me when the phones arrived and I could go pick them up. The last time I bought anything at Apple was the last time I buy anything at Apple.

    Oh, and the guy at AT&T said "a week or two" for arrival.

    I ordered on apple.com yesterday with a ship date of 7/27, to today I went to att and ordered thru my premier account. The status says pending.

    The apple order is still open, wonder which one ships first and what happens to the other one?
