Aw that does suck! Do you live far away from an Apple store?

you could probably still cancel your order and go out there and get one...

I think the closest one is in Dallas, Texas which is about 30 minutes away from where I live (Arlington)......
There is a nice fancy one in Southlake Town Center :) not too far from ya.

The Northpark store is my favorite. Take the 30 minute drive, it beats waiting a week! just make sure they have stock before you go.

Yeah. I absolutely hate waiting for things to be delivered, especialy when they give you that BS processing time before they even ship it. That on top of paying a premium for shipping makes it seem like online orders should receive a discount. Well Apple offers free shipping but who wants free 2 week shipping? Absolutely ridiculous, they ordered you the most budget processing/shipping available. Probably costs them like a quarter.

ps Thanks for the info. I'll make sure never to order from Apple online!

I'm pretty sure it's not going to take 2 weeks for you to get your new iPhone.

When I ordered my girlfriend's 8gb nano a couple months back, it told me the same thing about the "estimated" ship date.

I think it's the worst case scenario ship date. The nano came in 3 days later.

Wait a couple of days and see...Keep your head up! :cool:

so js, are you going to cancel your order and go get one at a store?
Well I ordered the Power Crystal screen protectors along with the iPhone and that already shipped and since they were both in one order, I don't think I can cancel it... I'll just be a man and wait... After all, it is an iPhone, it's worth the wait... Right?..... ;)

Not iphone-related, but I like ordering hardware from Newegg. I live in Maryland, so I usually choose free 3-day shipping and get it overnight, since most of the stuff I order from them ships from New Jersey. :)

Hey aggie, this is random but did you just switch from an 8gig to a 16 gig?
ahh kelley the queen of randomness... LOL
actually I sold my first iPhone in november to get the n95 I switched back to the iPhone in feb and got an 8gb iPhone. A couple days later they released the 16gb. I took the 8gb back and got the 16gb and paid the 100 difference. I've had the 16gb since the day it was released

Haha thats cool. I had an 8 gig touch, and I got the 16 gig iPhone. Best decision ever! It is amazing how much fits on it! I know its only twice as much obviously, but it feels like more...
