Unless the shipping(FRT) goes off backorder also it doesn't mean it will be shipping soon. Every day the phone goes off back order for everyone.

Mine wasn't for awhile, but 9:00 am just turned back to BO, the FRT (Freight) says not BO. I checked the 4 or 5 orders behind me and they're still not-back ordered ... goofy how they do things.

Tracking others Fed Ex packages I've seen a bunch of "pick ups" around the 12:00 time, at least those that were shipped from TX or TN.

...yes sorry guys/girls, it goes from 0 to 1 throughout the day, its just a matter of you refreshing the page to see it....it doesn't mean anything.

my iPhone is being delivered today, and as of almost 2am this morning (i was up watching the all star game) phone and frt were back ordered.

:cool:

Well, even though my phone was not "back ordered", it still hadn't shipped, so I went to my local Apple store and they had one! So I canceled my order and am done with AT&T stores for anything Apple.

It's about time AT&T got new shipments, I've been greeted this whole week with "Sorry, no iPhones but we can order them and take forev..., I mean take 7 to 10 days to arrive" when I call the AT&T stores. I doubt all the phones belong to the order fulfillmenters so maybe I got a chance to snatch one :laugh2:

My Step Mom works as a area manager at AT&T. NO AT&T stores are permitted to sell iPhone 3G's, ALL Direct Fulfillment orders MUST be filled before AT&T local stores can sell them to the public people. So yes, all the phones at AT&T belong to Direct Fulfillment, until they fill all of them.
