[Please allow me the opportunity to rant here...
Just got off the phone with AT&T. Was on hold for 30 minutes, and all I wanted to confirm was that I would get the phones on the 21st. When I check online all I get are things like "processing" and "will be shipped when available". Too vague for me. I want answers, specifics. CSR looked at my order and now says it will be shipped October 4th through 14th! WTF! I ordered at 7am CST and got an email after this stating my phone had been "reserved". Why is it now back ordered? Gave her a mouth full, but all she said that there was a delay in ALL preorders of the iPhone 5. That's fine if I didn't get up early enough or others had ordered before me, but why send me an email saying mine was "reserved". Never again will I preorder with AT&T. I'm staying up late like everyone else from now on and ordering through the iPhone app. I'm furious right now! I'm still hoping AT&T doesn't know what they are talking about and I'll still get mine. Otherwise, I'm taking the day off and getting in line. Ugh./QUOTE]
It seems as if ppl ordering from Apple are having an easier time. They had someone on another site who ordered their iPhone yesterday afternoon. And posted a screenshot showing how Apple had said it was ready to ship! And i was like wtf? I am still in limbo with AT&T and this person ordered the same phone yesterday afternoon, and it is ready to ship already!
I am interested in that also. They have some ppl who swear that live chat told them their phone would be in by the 21st. But when i tried live chat, they said they had no way of telling me when i would get it. That i would have to wait for an email telling me it was shipped. And they had no idea when that email would get to me.jmp316: How did you get a CSR to verify your order status? I just got off the phone with AT&T and they indicated that there was no way to tell me if I got in the first round of orders or not. I ordered my phone at 3:05 AM and got my processed email at 3:14 AM. I would assume I got in, but she said she couldn't tell me until the phone actually SHIPS.
She also said that she has been told that the iPhone 5 will SHIP from AT&T on Sept 21. That would mean a Sat or Monday delivery. Not a HUGE deal, but VERY misleading if that happens. They'll have a TON of irate customers should that be the case.
Just wanted to see how you got your info. Good luck, bro!
What I got from the article was that AT&T pre-orders made before they ran out of stock will ship by the 21st and anything after they ran out of stock is now 2-3 weeks..Check out the article. Doesn't sound like it.
I ordered mine on 9/14 and it still says Processing.
