Hello All:

Here is a thread for Verizon orders for the Apple Watch Series 4.

As most already know- all configurations were not available on the app @ midnight. In fact Verizon telesales reps couldn't order Stainless Steel models @Midnight. This glitch was eventually fixed online and in telesales but as of today the SS versions do not show on the Verizon app.

So now that I've gotten charged for the XS Max I ordered- Let talk about status on the preorders of AW Series 4 watches ORDERED from Verizon:

Please state what you ordered
Order location
Order Date
Deliver by date
Any movement


Stainless Steel 44mm with White Sport Band (Because Milanese was backordered to 11/4)
Order location 0423101
Order Date 09/14/2018
Deliver by 09/21/2018
No Movement

Ordered 44mm SG Aluminum w/ Sport Band, 9/14 9:30am EST using ApplePay. Received payment failure email last night at 9:30pm. Entered new CC about 15 minutes after. CC was charged. Haven’t received any updates since. Dreading they gave my watch to someone else.

Ordered silver aluminum 40mm 3:10 am. Im in New York/Long Island area. Still no change, it says processing. Tried to tweet verizon, no answer. This is the latest I have ever not received shipping info the night before so im getting worried.

I just spoke with a Verizon rep who told me there is no tracking info because it is coming directly from Apple. I dont think this is correct, I mean other models have shipped from verizon. Why would the aluminum 40mm silver be any different?

Checked mine this morning...still says processing. Ship by date 10/3. When I called the local verizon store that I ordered it from, they told me 9/25. But Verizon's site is showing 10/3...not sure at this point. I'm going to hit up the local stores for an off chance one of them has one for sale...not holding my breath though...Ah the joys of being an impulsive Apple fan

I placed orders today for 3x series 4 watches with Cellular and got ship dates of 10/31 or sooner. Two watches were ready to ship but one 44mm SG Aluminum is holding the shipment up and they’ll come all at once. Is that normal for Verizon and Apple Watch orders? I’ve normally sourced from Apple direct but needed to do the monthly payment options this time.. I hope everyone is getting their watches in realistic shipping times!

Not really a preorder after launch day. Now it's a backorder.

I wasn't gatekeeping. I just thought it's an interesting distinction.
It’s all good I didn’t feel that way no worries. I know I’m late to the party on the watch front it took me some time to negotiate with my wife and mother in law to take the plunge lol I thought if I waited to much longer dates would slip past thanksgiving lol I started on series 0 all the way to series 3 so I’m curious how series 4 works out. I hope you’re enjoying your new watch!

Is there any way you can split your order? Like cancel the one that is holding the others up, and then place it separately?
