    Nobody in the UK has progressed further than "not yet shipped".

    The only way I see it being here on Thursday is if Europe's shipment is already here.

    Mine hasn't chained from "Not yet shipped" either.

    I'm not too concerned. America is a big place, they probably have many more orders to ship out and further for them to travel.

    I love how many of these are turning up now.

    I'm pretty certain if it doesn't arrive by June 24th like it says on the order page all hell will be let loose.

    Probably resulting in an apple gift card. I want my order status to change as much as the next person but the numerous amount of posts relating to 'My order still hasn't shipped' isn't going to speed things up and will probably cause more people to panic.

    There are still 3 more days until it needs to be here.

    Not going to happen. The Carriers have already arranged for launch. The Apple stores have arranged for launch. The iPhones are 99% certainly in the country.

    There not going to turn around with just over 72 Hours left and say 'Sorry, we can't give you guys the phones as the US needs them more'

    Its all about Supply and Demand. The less supply the more demand. Apple are kings at making people think they need something they really don't.

    iirc Apple has a factory in Ireland (aswell as their europe HQ) so can only assume our devices are being built there so there's less travel time to get them here.

    Having said that, i'm still pacing due to lack of updates, hurry up and prepare to ship goddamit! i work for Orange and have already had customers call up saying they've already received theirs, wtf?! :confused:

    Yeah there lying. Just trying to get Micro Sims.

    If people are receiving them there would be hundreds of videos showing on you tube.

    Plus Apple aren't going to build anything in Ireland. Not when they can use cheap chinese factories to do it with the tooling.

    If it doesn't ship by tuesday i'd say we'd be struggling to get them in-time .. but i have every confidence in not getting screwed...

    Apple still has a pre-auth on my credit-card for the amount anyway

    Apple took the amount from my account within 30minutes of ordering.

    I do hope they update the status to shipped by tomorrow... :confused:

    In the same boat, but I now have a micro sim. Just picked it up from my o2 store. They wanted to keep my email before giving me it though!

    Your country's size and volume is quite small compared to the US, so it will take less time for them to ship throughout the UK. They have to ship earlier in the US in order to get all of the phones to the appropriate local hubs across the country. Shipping in the UK will be like shipping just within the state of Oregon. You can probably expect your orders to ship tomorrow (Tuesday).
