iPhone 6s Plus Shipping dates

Why is iPhone 6s Plus shipinng dates are Oct 16 - Oct 23 ? While on the Apple.com it shows delivers 25th... I already ordered from premier site, since I had no choice as I dont have ATT Next and do not wish to move to it. But why is the ship dates are so far out for the 6s Plus via ATT ?

I really hope it changes, but I have a bad feeling about this.....

Even though I know it’s pointless, I chatted with CS. I was told this:

 

AT&T : I am very sorry. However, at this time since the order is only available for pre-order we are not supplied with inventory levels. I am also not able to see where your place is in the queue.

 

and also this:

 

AT&T : I am very sorry. However, due to the high demand for this new product we would have to go based of the information that has been generated. The order can be shipped out sooner due to the fact that since you have already placed a pre-order, your order has already been placed on a queue.

 

From this and based on other information that people posted on this and other forums. 


Apple has production constrains with 6s Plus models, across the board, not just ATT model. ATT at lower level does not have any idea when they will get the Plus in stock and hence can not provide a real date, 10/16/2015 to 10/23/2015 is just a place holder, because something needed to be provided.... The real ship date could be out from that or could be earlier then that, but I think at this point it is not known by anyone....

 

It is also possible that Apple secures all produced units for its self first and then distributes them to carriers after there stock is full and that’s why the units sold via Apple.com have an actual launch day ship date. 

 

At this point nothing can be done, as ATT claiming that those are not real ship dates and they don’t have any shipping estimate at this time, besides what system generated. I`m going to step back and stop reading all this forums until around 20th or so. 

 

EDIT:

Just forgot to mention one thing. What really gets me upset is the fact that ATT did not warn users about this shortage and made us believe that if we order early enough (IE 3am EST) we will be first in line for the launch day 9/25.... ATT must at least had an idea that there was shortage and units might have a way out date, ahead of 3am preorder. And for that, if the phone does not come on the 25th, I will be having converstations with ATT. Lets all just wait and see....

I'm afraid that would be the shipping date according to what I've been reading in the past few days. :[

Given the information that i have gathered, I doubt ver much that the phones will get delivered before the 16th of Oct. Lets be hopeful but also realistic.

Preordered 128GB space grey 6s+ right at 2am Central. Confirmation emails at 2:04am and 2:11am.  Ship date estimate October 16-23.  Confirmation Text at 721pm on 09/13.   

 

I also chatted with a rep who told me the dates were accurate.  

 

I wouldn't be so frustrated if the ATT reps were giving consistent information.   Every post I read says something different.   It's a couple of days out from the release date and no one can provide any solid information.

I cancelled my order. I'm actually thinking of paying full retail through apple, and then when my wife's contract is up next year, we'll switch to Verizon or one of the others. (AT&T will probably celebrate getting rid of two more grandfathered unlimited data plans). It's pretty ridiculous that AT&T would have people get up at 3:00 am to order a phone that they had to know they wouldn't be able to ship for a month. Why not tell people the 6S+ was going to be unavailable? I usually don't care about getting my phone on launch day, but I've been nursing my iPhone 5 for months waiting for this to come out. The battery barely lasts an hour off the charger, so I need a new phone and can't wait for AT&T to get its act together. If they'd just let people upgrade on the 2 year contract through apple, Best Buy, target, etc., this wouldn't be an issue. If you ordered through Apple on the 12th, you'd be getting the plus on launch day. It's only now that the delivery times have slipped.

They'll come when they come Smiley Surprised

 

I'd much prefer the Apple purchase experience.  With AT&T it's like going to Reno instead of Las Vegas.  Unfortunately, it was the only option for upgrading.  Using the Apple site, it was Next or full-retail only.

 

I'll bet most of us who were pre-ordered as soon as it opened up will get our iPhones sooner than quoted.  Launch day...?  ...dunno Smiley Frustrated

There was a recall on the iPhone 5 battery. I had my battery replaced less than a year ago. The phone continued to fail, so they replaced my phone with a brand new one. Same model though.
