Well folks it's unofficially official, only users getting screwed on launch are 6S+/ATT.com

    Tons of tracking numbers going out for ALL carriers and models. There's only one model/carrier that hasn't shipped out yet. That's the 6S+ who ordered through att.com

    Anyone that has a choice should order through Apple not AT&T. Of course with two year contracts and other situations some people had to order through AT&T.

    Didn't some AT&T people only get notified day before that their order shipped?

    It will be another reason to avoid the 2 year contract.

    I don't believe we need to order from Apple. 6S orders were fine it's only the plus. So it's not like they are messing with all of us.

    Yea my guess is Apple simply had more available. Or maybe so many people needed to go to AT&T because of two year contracts that meant Apple had more.

    But the short story is at pre-order time AT&T was quoting a delivery time of 10/16-10/23 before placing the order, and Apple was quoting 9/25. So anybody that could order from Apple was silly to choose AT&T instead if you wanted your phone at launch.

    I ordered from Apple, and my phone still hasn't shipped. It's been in "preparing to ship" for almost five days now.
    I don't expect the status to change to "shipped" until tomorrow afternoon/evening, for delivery on Friday.

    I'd give it until tomorrow before you go ballistic. Last year my 6+ didn't ship until the day before launch and that was directly from Apple.

    I decided last year that I'm not messing with att because the same thing happened last year.

    Yea. No one can be mad since AT&T didn't give the pluses early delivery dates. We can be disappointed but mad at them for giving no correct info. Only suggestion I have is next time push preorders for plus to later date on AT&T

    After my horrible experience with AT&T pre-order last year, I went with Apple this year. Much better experience. Already tracking my new phone all the way from China.

    I am on schedule for Friday. Ordered a 128GB Space Gray 6S+ through the Apple Store app on my iPhone at 2:03 AM CST on 9/12. Email confirmation within five minutes. Using UPS MyChoice, I started tracking it a week later.

    Last year with AT&T Pre-order, I ordered a 64 GB Space Gray 6+ at 2:07 AM CST, which was as soon as the AT&T website would allow me. I did not receive email confirmation until several hours later and then ended up not receiving the phone until almost a week after release date.

    I am on the Next plan, so I was able to order through the Apple Store, and it has been a world of difference this year. I will NEVER order directly from AT&T again after the horrible experience last year and the great experience this year.

    Mine is the same. But it's trackable by UPS using my phone number as the reference number. Not sure why Apple is so slow about saying it's shipped...

    I would not worry. It will be there on Friday. I ordered an AT&T SG 6s+ and still shows preparing for shipment on Apple's site. Going to UPS and using my phone number as reference I have watched my 6s+ travel from China to Alaska, and arrived in Kentucky last night. I imagine it will be in KC by morning. Last year my 6+ did not leave China until the Day before and it made it to my house on time.
