    I would like to know what day you ordered your iPhone (and which iPhone) at an AT&T location and what day you actually received your iPhone. This is to, perhaps, show a trend on actual fulfillment time, rather than the "7-10 days" or whatever your AT&T representative told you.

    I ordered two WHITE 16GB on SUNDAY, JULY 13, and will post when I receive them.

    I ordered a black 16gb (much to my chagrin) at around noon CDT. My order shows backorderd on att site, I have received no email re: my order and all the orders ahead of mine appear to have shipped!

    As another note, I was the 14th and 15th person to order a phone from my AT&T location, and they are all listed as "back-ordered" for now.

    I ordered a 16gb black Friday at 10:17 am. It shows backordered. i went to my AT&T store this morning and they said they have not received any DF phones. They were saying 5 to 7 days last Friday. Now its 10 to 21 days.....
    AT&T has my money. It shows on my credit card. According to AT&T they would not charge it until it was shipped. BS. 5 days later, money is still gone from my CC. I will give them till this Friday then The can of woop butt gets opened. Why lie to your customers. Tell the truth. I would have accepted we are simply out and do not know how long it would take. Why the run around...

    Thanks for listing to my venting.....

    P.S. How do you see the other orders? How do you know they are for the 3g iPhone?

    I ordered a White 16GB from an AT&T store in a mall in Columbia, MD at approximately 8:30 pm on 7/11. At that time I was quoted 5 - 7 business days for delivery.

    Email confirmation came on Sunday at 8:15 pm

    Listed a back-ordered.

    Now I'm (im)patiently waiting.

    I ordered 2 iPhones, one 16GB Black and one 16GB White at 11AM EDT on Friday.
    Received 2 email confirmations of the orders at 3PM Friday
    Received 1 email saying the Black 16GB was backordered 2-3 days at 6AM on Sunday.
    Checking status through the weekend and Monday, both orders flip-flopped between Backorder and not.
    At 2AM Tuesday I got email with FedEx Tracking #, saying order was shipped late Monday night. (This is the white iPhone)
    At 10AM Tuesday I got email with FedEx Tracking #, saying order was shipped Tuesday morning.
    My White iPhone arrived at the store before 11AM today!
    My Black iPhone is in FedEx land scheduled for delivery on Wednesday!
    If it matters, the white phone was shipped from Memphis, the black from Ft. Worth.

    Hang in there guys, DF is working. Yes, the AT&T order status page is whacked, but the process is working.

    Port Washington, Wisconsin - Boats and Beer . . .
    Ordered 2 Black 16Gb on Friday @ 1 pm CDT
    Got 2 emails on Sunday @ 8:30 pm confirming my order for both phones.
    The status of both has been backordered since Saturday, however, I have not received any emails from AT&T stating that the phones were back ordered. I was the 58th & 65th DF at my AT&T store.

    I ordered my 8GB at 12:15 EST on 7/11. I never got any emails (I think the guy must've typed it in wrong), but my order status is finally different - both the phone AND the freight are not listed as backordered. I hope that means it will ship sometime today!

    Last night the phone became un-backordered. Still hasn't shipped. There are three people in front of me

    Waiting: Not Backordered
    Waiting: Not Backordered

    Still waiting

    Ordered 8gig Blk iPhone on Friday evening in CO
    Didn't receive confirmation e-mail until Sunday night
    CC has NOT been charged
    Phone has flip flopped between backordered
    This morning neither the phone nor the shipping was backordered...good sign?

    Will keep posted. From all I have heard once the phones are shipped they arrive the next day. Has anyone else heard differently?

    Waiting no longer

    Just checked and my phone is shipped...to arrive tomorrow. Note today was the first day that there were two "0"s in the backorder box, so that may be an indication that your product is ready for shipment.

    Good luck everyone
