Anyone else get this message? When I started the process it said "Delivers on 9/19" but
I'm wondering if that ship has already sailed for me.

Same message here. I take it as they are holding a phone for you in a virtual cart so that you don't miss out on getting it on the launch day. It said also that they'll send a link in an email that Needs to be complete in 24 hours from the email. Seems legit to me.

I got the same message and when I went to the status site it found my reservation number and it said they will email me when ready. I got it right as the app started working too, so hopefully this means we get it on the earliest possible day still.

I checked that link too. Seems legit. Hoping for the best and keeping my fingers crossed. I have not clicked a purchase button yet so no biggie, I can wait and walk in if this doesn't work out.

They do this when their link to the carrier crashes. They will delay verification of your contract status until the connection clears up. Then they contact you in a few hours to update you.

The phone is reserved for you, you won't lose your place.

Got that message too. Unfortunately, it was after I was adding it to my cart and it said ships in 7-10 business days. Does this mean we're in a virtual queue?

I got that as well. And I was on the app as soon as it went live. Was everyone ATT? It said it could not reach my carrier.

Yesterday when I checked my eligibility, I qualified for the partial upgrade of 649 for the plus 64. Just now when I checked the ATT site, they weren't allowing me to purchase any iPhone (unless it was a new line). I have two phones and only ordered the one phone through Apple but ATT wouldn't let pre-order another.

Does anybody know if you can keep trying to order a phone, even though they've got a spot reserved?

I just put my reservation number in that site and it said it couldn't find it. I have a screen shot but concerned the Apple site doesn't return any information on the order.

I was AT&T. I think we are good though.

I have a code and it shows up on buyiphone.apple.com/status.
When I reserved it on my iPad it gave me that screen.

Tried ordering Silver 64GB 6+ on Sprint.

Does this mean I have one ready to hold for me to purchase?

EDIT: The reservation is gone?! What the heck??
EDIT2: Sprint Store is working for me, gonna try that asap.

I got that message as well. Ended up getting 2 different reservations when the app timed out. Ended up getting my wife's and my order through, so now I don't need them. I'm wondering if I can give them away?

AT&T here and got the same message. When I did, it showed delivery on 9/19, sure hope it stays that way once we are able to complete the order.
