Re: iphone 4 pre order still "in progress"!!!!

I was told by CS that they might arrive by mid next week, and others are being told it's being shipped today.

Still nothing today. Everything they have told me has turned out to be false. What is the point of pre-ordering?

The 5051XXXXXX orders are being shipped.  I got my 32 GB on the 24th, my tracking number didn't appear till 7 pm the previous night.

 

I feel for everyone still stuck though, I hope you all get your phones soon and I hope AT&T reimburses you somehow for the wait.


I have to disagree with you on this. I have a 5051xxxxx order number and still NO TRACKING NUMBER and my phone was charged on the 17th!

BTW what is the series of status messages one is going to see when pre-ordered in USA?

What is after that and till the point when is see the status as "Shipped"

Thanks Bighen.  It's just that I am completely without a phone and so maybe a bit more sensitive to all of this.  Also this is my first ATT experience and it is not getting off to a good start.

I just got off the phone with Mark from Premier Customer Support.

 

He said that all orders placed on the 15th would be fufilled by the 28th. I asked him to clarify "fufilled" and he said I would have it by Monday.

 

Let's hope Mark doesn't munch on his words for dinner Monday night. =)


 

I really hope Mark is right.  I have already determined that I WILL have a phone by Tuesday morning.

 

If my order has not shipped by the time I get off work on Monday, I am immediately going in line at my local AT&T store and I will camp out there overnight and get my phone the next morning.  Assuming that works out, I'll just call AT&T as soon as I have my new iPhone in hand and cancel my online pre-order.  If they don't let me cancel, then I will just return the online ordered iPhone as soon as it arrives.

 

Even though I would like my phone sooner than Tuesday, it wasn't the not having the phone that was killing me...it was the not knowing when I will have my phone.  Now that i have my mind made up to do this, and that at the very latest, I will have a phone on Tuesday, I feel much better.

This is true.  I forgot that this happened to me when I ordered the 3G in 2008 from AT&T, so much so that I made the mistake of ordering this new iphone from them!  Smiley Happy  Here I am waiting again with a phone on backorder.

I think the thing that chaps my hide is that Apple has sold non-preorder phones to people at their stores when there are hundreds if not thousands of us that are stuck waiting that did preorder.  I understand the laws of supply and demand but to blatantly disrespect people and disregard any notion of responsibility is pathetic.  What's worse is the fact that we tolerate it and they know we will.
