Sprint orders have begun to ship!

I just heard sprint has started shipping the phones already. Will At&t follow suit?

Re: Sprint orders have begun to ship!

just because you've received a shipping notice, doesn't mean it's actually shipped.

 

 

chances are, it means that shipping labels have been printed for your phone and are awaiting pick-up from UPS/Fed-EX .....  which I bet won't happen until Wednesday.

Wrong. I have a tracking number, and it shows a departure scan in Shenzhen, China and an arrival scan in Chek Lap Kok, Hong Kong.

This is how it was for the iPHone 4.  You may see it get to the US and sit in one of the shipping depots for a day or so.  They may have it arive a day early or arive on the 14th as promised.

 

Bottom line it is on it way!

Do you remember when the charge showed up on your CC?

Re: Sprint orders have begun to ship!

The orders from Apple come directly from China. The orders from ATT get sent from their warehouse, which is in Texas I believe. Apple ships the phones from China to the ATT warehouse, but you don't see that part of the trip. You just see the ATT to you part of the trip.

Orders that show up on tracking thru Apple today and those that show up on ATT tomorrow or Wednesday will both arrive the same day. The people who ordered thru Apple aren't getting them early.

I didn't check. I had an order confirmation email stating it would be delivered on the 14th and that was good enough for me.

That's fine by me. I don't expect special treatment. Plus the phone isn't for me, so I'm not real concerned about it. As long as it gets here I'm good.
