Yeah that “buffer” time seems accurate. I ordered the wrong phone and didn’t realize until like 5pm and had to cancel. I know the Apple store was 9/28 but I see those orders probably all getting pushed upI’m hopeful that we get moved up. The only reason I got the 10/3 date was because I ordered way later than I normally would. Had no interest in ordering this year, and then the Verizon deal happened. Had to jump on it. My wife and I ordered 2 Maxes 256GB Silver. Both were listed as 9/21 shipping dates all day. Then approximately 1 hour before we ordered it flipped to 10/3. So I think with cancellations, etc, we should see some movement.
I also just found it rather weird that it went from 9/21 to 10/3. That feels like a “safe buffer”. Normally it would have jumped from 9/21 to like 9/25 or 9/28 first...
Well that was quick; just got an email that the order has shipped and FedEx tracking checks out and says 9/21 delivery. Order page still says 10/3, but status says order shipped!Verizon small business customer here. Had a Verizon business rep set to place an order for 5 256GB XS Maxes (2 SG, 2 Gold, 1 Silver) at 2am CST. Woke up to an email around 7:30am saying the order wouldn't go through because the POC didn't have an email address associated with the account. After back and forth headaches all day, the order was finally placed at about 3:30pm that day, 9/14. The date given for the phones was 10/3, but the girl I was dealing with told me that business customers get top priority so we'll likely get them early. Don't know if that was her trying to pacify me since I was kind of up her butt all day, but as of now, it still says 10/3 and processing. Also, she told me that not many people were ordering the 256GB Max models, which seemed a bit surprising to me. But oh well, best of luck to you all, and here's to getting our phones hopefully next week!
Same, hopefully with the business account getting a bump we will get bumps too.Nothing here my order says pending on the app but processing on order status page
Yeah I doubt business gets that much of a priority because some households ordered the same number of phones and pay the same phone bill minus a discountSame, hopefully with the business account getting a bump we will get bumps too.
I am curious if he was treated as the first 10/3’s to get shipped, or if he was given 9/21 special treatment for being business. As in, jumped into the 9/21 pool.
I am hoping he just jumped to the top of the 10/3 pool, because that would mean the rest of us aren’t far behind.
Wth is going on here lolI ordered on 9/14 my Verizon account shows that my order was placed on 9/14 as well. My account shows a ship date of October 3
However I literally just received a text message saying that my order was received on September 20 and that I will get another text message when it ships
