Sprint reported avaialble inventory for launch day delivery of the 64GB models until 6PM EST & the 256GB’s until noon yesterday.
probably because the preorder process was so problematic.
If one were lucky enough to get in early, there was a decent chance it got canceled.

I’m hoping mine doesn’t get canceled. It still says pending with a 11/3 ship

I had ordered through att web site. Had all devices and macbook at att.com page. I kept getting kicked off. Over and over. By 4am I gave up. Told wife hey I'm done. The site sucks. So she stayed on at work while I slept. She finally got through. This is the weirdest crap. We got a 11/3 delivery date. And it's preparing to ship as of today. We ordered exactly at 4:16am. I expected to get delivery in the 2-3 week range. Wow. What luck. Totally excited.

Mine still says Preparing for Shipment and has since Saturday morning. Expecting it to change today (hopefully) to shipped. I know it will be here 11/3 but this time between preorders and arrival always have me on edge.

I also think there is just something fun about the discovery part of seeing the status of your order change from step to step, trying to find your shipment on UPS/FedEx before the shipping info is provided to you, etc. My yearly iPhone purchases are among the orders I look forward to the most every year.

EDIT: Just tried the 'ol track by reference trick (phone number as reference) on UPS website and lo and behold!

Hahaha. That's awesome. There's Something about the items leaving China and waiting for them to get through customs just has me going a bit crazy. I used to hear stories about people who had theirs get to US, Go through customs, and for some reason had it sent back to China. I was laughing. It was going back and forth. I'm hoping to be one of the lucky ones who gets.the phone before the third. Lol. Maybe on the second. LMA.

I used to think it was stupid and somewhat immature to lock yourself into a delivery thread on a forum and track the plane your new iPhone was flying on.

I was wrong. Well, maybe it is stupid and somewhat immature to do that, but count me in! :D

Well I’m late to the thread. I set my Apple Watch to wake me up at 2:55am so I could order as soon as it was possible on the east coast.
Couldn’t sign into Verizon website so I did everything on the Verizon app.
I ordered a space grey 256gb and was back in bed by 3:10 am. Very easy transition and got the email before I shut my eyes. Now just waiting for it to ship.

Had to place a 2nd order since my 1st was just lingering as pending.

Was starting to question if 420PM CST last Thursday’s was still within the advertised (Sprint’s cutoff for the Silver 64GB X was 5pm EST) 11/3 delivery window.

This will be the 1st time since camping out for the 5 that the mrs and I both have the new device launch day....

Well, my date still shows 11/17 - 11/24 but Apple just charged my credit card. I’m hoping it’s an actual charge and not just the periodic check some companies do to make sure you have money in the account. They never put a hold on my funds when I placed the order, so fingers are crossed.

My local AT&T store had no line when I drove by at 6:30 am today. Just a sign.

Those are my exact dates with Apple as well. It says Delivers 11/17 through 11/24. That was a "good" date but I would love for the dates to move up. No charges on my CC. I've been refreshing my email like crazy and checking the Apple web site for any order changes but it still staying the same.

If nothing changes between today and tomorrow, I'm thinking of going to the Apple store tomorrow AM to see if i can try my luck. LOL! or even Sunday and even Monday. In the meantime I'll keep the refreshing and checking mania going!

Shhh! Secretly this is so much fun!!!!

@Sharunda, I don’t think anyone in the history of any forums has ever exuded more genuine excitement for OTHERS than you have.

You are truly one of the genuinely nice people in this world.
