Man me too! I just woke up and preordered with no problems at all. Mine says "available to ship in two weeks" as well. Very odd. In the past years the shipment date didn't change until around 5pm.I just ordered a few minutes ago. I went to Apple first, but as stated above, they are already shipping in 2 weeks. (Surprising, because it is only been on Pre-Order for 5 hours, oh well). I went to AT&T as well. It looks like they state "as early as 9/21" with no guarantee. I will certainly keep track of this shipment... I definitely want this on iDay!
That's cool! So are you happy that you switched to Verizon? My 4S is on AT&T, but I just ordered a 5 on Verizon since their coverage is much better here in the southwest. I'll miss the simultaneous voice and 3G, but LTE availability and coverage is more important to me.More interesting details of my Verizon purchase. Had two devices on the plan, an iPad 3 purchased March 17, 2012 which is not on contract, just a month to month data plan, and an iPhone 4 which has an eligibility date of November 2012. So the iPhone IS NOT ELIGIBLE right now. However, Verizon allowed me (online) to transfer the eligibility date of the iPad (3/17/12) to the iPhone! Was able to get the upgrade pricing and just have to keep the iPad active until November. Nice deal I thought.
That's one of several reasons. I think some people are tired of being nickel and dimed for things like hotspot and facetime on cellular. Plus Verizon has better coverage in many places.AT&T still showing delivery on 9-21
Apple sold out within the 1st few hours and I find it kind of odd AT&T has not sold out yet..
Are people leaving AT&T because of the no FaceTime over 4G unless you pay? Or did AT&T just get a crap load of launch phones?
I suppose Apple sold out so fast because it was a worldwide order site where as AT&T is only 1/3 (if that) of the US subscribers..
