On Monday I thought people were crazy for worrying, but I have been going from forum to forum to email to order status back to forum all day. I ordered 6/9 around 3. I don't know why I didn't order from Apple.
OK folks, here is info. from the PDF in the twitter link...
If I preordered online or in a store, when should I expect to get my device? In general, if you preordered iPhone 3G S between June 8 and June 12, your order should be ready for pick up, or delivery, on Friday, June 19. If you preordered on or after June 13, your device will ship between 7-14 days from when you placed your order. However, delivery dates are not guaranteed in advance. A few factors such as availability, credit issues or other reasons may impact the delivery date.
Watch for our email with your expected delivery date.
If I preordered online, what happens between the order placement and the arrival of my device?
In terms of device arrival, you’ll hear directly from us between now and your delivery date so you know when to expect your shipment.
In between now and then, once you’ve added your order to the shopping cart and you’re ready to check out, you’ll get additional details on the delivery process.
Once your order is placed, we’ll send you a confirmation text and email with an order ID so you can use our Order Status Tool to check your order. At first, you’ll likely see “In Progress” as status. We’ll update the status with a shipment tracking number once your order is ready to ship.
For customers who placed their order on or after June 13, you should receive your device within 7-14 days. If you preordered between June 8 and June 12, there’s a good chance your device will arrive as early as June 19. However, delivery dates are not guaranteed.
How will my shipment arrive? What carrier? We will send an email when your order ships. Since we use a variety of carriers, it’s best to check your shipment tracking link so you can more closely follow your delivery. Again, watch for an email from us and check your order status at att.com.
After going back and forth through twitter and emails I got this:
Would you say that I have a good chance of my order going out today or
tomorrow since I ordered I on the 9th
ATT rep wrote back:
Yes, if you ordered on the 9th, we expect that your iPhone 3G S will
ship tomorrow for arrival on Friday. That being said, orders may be
delayed for reasons that include, but are not limited to: incorrect
shipping info, credit issues, number porting, carrier delays, etc.
