T-Mobile.com - I ordered my iPhone 6+ Sept 23 at around 5:00pm. Status said backordered; expected delivery date Oct 2nd. I thought that was pretty fast considering the extent of wait times for a plus for pre-orders. Now it has gone to "pending shipping", under a backordered status. I wonder if it is going to ship by 9/30 to arrive by Oct 2nd?

I ordered on 9/22 thru Jump thru the store, a 16gb gray one, and it's still showing backordered, no estimated delivery is posted.

I ordered a 16gb gold plus on 9/24. Expecting to wait about a month. Anyone have any better idea based on past experience?

You didn't see an expected ship date on your order? Mine said by 10/2. Sounded too fast, but I am hopeful.

Can you order in-store if you don't have jump? I want to see about trading my 5 and putting an additional $200 down. I just want a regular 6 in space gray 64 gb.

Mine said something similar but I'm assuming it isn't correct. The wait time says 1-8 weeks. I'm setting myself on a month with the hope that it'll come sooner.

So I called today and asked if I could get a realistic shipping date for my order on 9/24. They are telling me that my order should ship in the next couple days and arrive by Oct. 3rd. Looking at the pre-order thread, Oct 3. seems like a load of bollocks but who knows. Have any of you heard anything?

Well, when I ordered my phone on 924, it's expected shipping date said October 2. no arrival date October 2. I was really shocked but I printed it just to have it on file. Mine still says backordered, but who knows, maybe they're receiving 1 million phones this week and then they're going to ship them all out. Who knows!

So, it looks like I'm going to have a bit longer to wait. I got to thinking last night that the 16GB was really not gonna cut it. I stream almost all my music and backup my pictures via Google, but with the better apps available on iOS I'm afraid I was going to run out of space. So I changed my order to a 128GB. They are still saying orders should ship in about a week so if that's actually true maybe it won't take that long.

I just checked and my order has not even gotten out of backordered status. My original delivery date said 10/2. That would be tomorrow. I'll probably be on the 4 week wait, which puts me at about 10/27 or so. Halloween special delivery.

Hey MacRumors,

HELP ME!

I canceled the order on my 16GB iPhone (6plus) with tmobile 3 days ago and ordered the 128GB version. I was told my card would not be charged. Yesterday, I got an overdraft notification from my bank and saw that tmobile had charged me for the phone. I immediately called and they told me they had canceled my order again and that the charge would be credited back.

Alas, today the charge still shows as pending on my bank account and I received a shipping notification from tmobile just now!

So what should me recourse be? Should I call tmobile again? Should I list the phone for sale? Are people still making a profit selling these? What would you do!?

Wait, you ordered 3 days ago and you've already gotten a shipping notification, as in it's been shipped? When's it supposed to arrive?

Hey, keep us posted. I haven't even ordered yet cuz I figured after everything the TMobile preorders went through it'd be like 6-8 weeks.

No. I ordered the 128GB 3 days ago, that still says "backordered" and I haven't been charged.

This order was for a 16GB that I ordered on 9/24. I canceled the order 3 days ago over the phone and again yesterday when I saw they charged me. And yet, they are still shipping me a phone!

Are you able to mail in your old iPhone AFTER you receive the new iPhone 6?
I'm going to mail in my Galaxy Note 3 after I receive it, yes.

----------

Ordered from Apple.com on 29th, shipped this morning and ETA 8 October. Any chance it'll come sooner than that?
Ordered my 6+ 16 gb on the 23, still backordered. I think it depends on your model. I'm not counting on mine anytime soon.

If you guys pay full price for device you can get AT&T or Verizon iPhone 6 or 6 Plus...They are unlocked and working perfect with TMobile....No waiting time..A lot of Apple Stores have them on stock now...:)

I'd have to put it on my Discover and pay 17% interest. Not worth it for me.

Using my jump trade in plan. It's already $10 extra for insurance and upgrade. I checked the local verizon store and apple store. Sold out of all the plus. Or I'd rather sell my 5c instead.
