iPhone 6 Plus Backorder

Hi Everyone,


Does anyone know the "real" wait status for the iPhone 6 Plus 64 or 128 gb?

 

We ordered them on Oct 22nd and the ship date is 12/2-12/11. Was wondering what others are experiencing with the actual ship time.

 

Thanks in advance! Man Happy

I ordered 9/24. My ship dates were 11-3 to 11-12. 6 plus, 64GB space grey. I am still waiting with no updates. Att can't give me a straight answer. I filed complaints this week with the FCC and the BBB.

6-8 weeks cause I heard iPhone back ordered 3 times. The first orders aren't even fulfilled. So it continues to push back current orders. I ordered 11/1 expected shipment 12/11-22.

FWIW:

 

iPhone 6 plus, Space Grey 128gb

ordered at AT&T store 9/30

projected ship dates 11/7 - 11/18

 

so my shipping window opens tomorrow.  I spoke to the very helpful AT&T store mgr. at the store I ordered from...when she checked her system, which supposedly has the latest updates, she said orders placed at the stores today for a phone of my description are subject to a 35 BUSINESS day delay.  At that rate orders placed today would have a projected ship date of later than 12/20!  Taking my order date of 9/30 and counting 35 business days yields a ship date of 11/4...not too far off of my 11/7 opening date.  We'll see (fingers crossed).

Remember 35 business days means no Saturday's and Sunday's. So I ordered 9-25 and my projected ship dates are 11-4 to 11-13. Still no update. So 35 business days for me is 11-13 and 35 business days for you would be 11-18. Losing hope it will come a day before 35 business days.

I ordered two 6 pluses 64GB, both online through AT&T.

 

Order 1: Space Gray, ordered 9/20, est ship window 10/29 - 11/7.

Status: Preparing to ship.  This is the last day of my shipping window estimate and it has been 7 weeks.

 

Order 2: Silver, UNLOCKED, ordered 10/7, est ship window 11/14 -11/25.

Status: Preparing to ship.  I am 8 days away from my shipping window and it has been 4 weeks.  

 

This entire process has been exhausting and I am totally turned off by the lack of communication with both phones AND by Apple's handling of this from the beginning.  Is it a great phone?... Sure.  Has it been worth this wait time... absolutely NOT.  I can't think of anything I've ordered in the last 10 years that has taken 7 weeks+ to get a shipment statement. Once I get it, I will hold on to it for a very long time or I'll switch over to Samsung and perhaps another carrier when time to upgrade.  I've been with AT&T/Cingular for 17 years.  Completely and utterly turned off by this nonsense and am embarrassed that I participated in it all. Never, ever again.  Never.

I ordered on 9/14 and had a est 11/7-11/27 I finally had enough heart to just cancel my order and go to apple and early this morning becasue they received a large amount last and buy my phone...I know it was risky but I kept and watch online all day if it was available to pick up in the store, and now I have it a Iphone 6 plus 128BGb in my hand. 🙂

Yes I have read several places that mention it was 28-35 business days. I have a 28-35 business day shipping window. Ordered IPhone 6 Plus 64gb SIlver on 10/9 with 11/18-11/28 shipping dates. So sad... I was really hoping to receive the phone before Thanksgiving. Doesnt look that way. 

 

Also, I was just trying to check my order via online and the Wireless Order Status page is down due to maintenance. Hopefully they are fixing their site to give people a better idea. We can only hope. 😉

I ordered my iPhone 6+ 128 GB Gold on 10/9. Estimated ship date is 11/18-11/28. I've seen people in these forums order theirs on 10/23 and already received them. And they ordered the same exact phone I did. It's fustrating but nothing we really can do except just wait. Pretty soon we will all forget about the wait and will be playing with our phones.

Ordered iPhone 6+, grey, 128GB, on 9/20 original anticipated ship date 10/29 - 11/07.  Here it is 11/07 and still not shipped.  AT&T store where I purchased it can only tell me what's available online.  This totally sucks!  This is my 4th iPhone and I've never had to wait more than 2 weeks.
