Hello everyone!

I couldn't find out if this thread will violate macrumors' rules. I hope admins will let me know if so.

I wonder if we open a new thread for people who are waiting for iPhone 4 ordered online since the phone became out of stock for most of apple online and retail stores around the world. I live in a place where no retail apple store, and we had iPhone 4 released on July 30th in Canada!

I ordered two iPhones on the 30th, and was confirmed shipping date on August 20th! I wonder if this confirmation is just to buy time for apple?

Share your information about confirmed shipping dates and stock availability in your local apple store.

Thank you

I have also ordered one iPhone 4 from Canada online store. and my shipping date is Also 20 August. I live in the US and a friend will ship it to me from Canada. I'm just wondering what the import tax would be.

If your friend ships it to you as a gift, I guess there won't be any taxation!

Do you think Aug 20 is too way far, or it's just a maximum estimate from apple in case of any delays?

I ordered 7/30 at 2:30AM PDT from Canada as well. Mine also shows a ship date of "20 Aug" and a delivers date of "26 Aug".

From my limited reading from various forums, it seemed that Apple.com orders in the US that had 2+ week lead times generally shipped a few days (5-6?) early.

Hopefully the same applies for Canadian orders.

Sounds good if it is true. If I go to Ottawa next week where apple store is available, and find iPhone 4 32GB in stock, I will cancel the order and get it from the store instead.

That's really fast delivery, four days only! Did you pay extra for expedited shipping?

I think this is how apple buy time to make sure they will be able to ship items at least on time.

Also ordered on July 30th release date here is Ireland and also have a ship date of August 20th and delivery on the 24th just hope it gets shipped sooner as I am dying to get my hands on it.
So it seems when you order expedited shipping it will be delivered within four days in UK and Ireland.


Hopefully guys you will get them soon

You guys fail when it comes to research. 5 minutes of searching would lead you to find out that buying from ATT website can get you the phone in 3 days. I ordered mine 8/8 and will arrive today 8/11. Look at the pic for proof.

You fail when it comes to reading comprehension. Of all the responses in this thread, only one response explicitly mentions that his/her order was in the US.

As soon as AT&T starts selling and shipping unlocked phones in Ireland, the UK, or Canada, then please let us know.

Well done speedline


Any one got bumped to PFS ?
Nothing yet for me, but I guess for people in countries where iPhone was released as a first phase. I think in the USA is possible to get iPhone from AT&T faster than apple online store.

Indeed, I go to apple store everyday hoping to get one and cancel my online order. It's always out of stock due to high demand of this phone!

I ordered mine online on the 26th Jul (UK order). I got an email on the 12th Aug at 2200 saying it had been shipped and it was delivered on the 13th by UPS. My order status remained at "Not Yet Shipped" right up until this point.

Estimated shipping date was the 19th Aug and delivery date the 26th Aug so arrived well ahead of Apples estimation.

Any reason why they choose UPS over the standard TNT ? Also if theyre shipping out every thursday like 12th 19th ill get mine in the estimated time itself and not early.The servers back up but still shows Not Yet Shipped
