Re: Who ordred and whats the status of your iPhone 3GS order??

Hi everyone,

 

I ordered two iPhone 3G S 16gb's yesterday (the 16th).  I ordered one on my regular account and one on a premier account.

 

The one on my regular account says "in progress."  The premier account one shows the same thing, except it also shows it as backordered.

 

Hopefully I will get at least one of them by this weekend, but I doubt it.

This is my 1st Iphone. I am so so excited. I pre-ordered mine on the 14th. My status is still "in process" I wish Att would let us know something. Mine says ordered not backordered. So I guess that is good. I now wish I would of waited out the line. I hate being in the dark.

Hi,

 

I went to my local ATT store and placed an order on the 11th. I'll be picking up the phone from the store.

 

Life is good.

Re: Who ordred and whats the status of your iPhone 3GS order??

You know I have to be honest here. I am waiting for an iphone that I pre-ordered as well. {keep it courteous}  The phones will arrive on or after 6/19 and that is that....Why is everyone expecting to get their iphone on the 17th or 18th or whatever. Why do you think you will be given something before the release date?! The only mistake Apple and AT&T made was giving you tracking numbers in the first place because now everyone who has a tracking number is making everyone who doesn't have one worry. Wait until the 19th and then, if you do not get your phone, then you can start complaining and worrying and talking about getting some sort of compensation. Here is the status: You will get them on or after the release date and no matter how much you beg and call apple and at&t for an update, that is the only answer you are really going to get.

Possible good news...when I first placed my order, I used my debit card and the entire amount was placed on hold in my account for a day or two then reversed.  When I called AT&T and asked they said the amount was held as a check to ensure available funds and it would come out again (for good) when the unit(s) ship....well guess what!...just checked my acct @ 11pm EDT and the $ has come back out!!!...Now I feel a little more optimistic about getting my phone on 6/19....even tho both the premier and "normal" order status sites still show backordered and processing.

Basicly Apple screwed ATT over.

Apple is big on customer service and doesn't want to look bad...So they hogged all the Iphones to fill their orders first

Then ATT gets the left overs.

hhm.. that's a load of bologna...

they have a partner ship, so I'm sure what you just said is not the case.

 

trust me... in the corporate world of suites, ties, leather chairs  and hot "administrative assistants"... they talk about this kind of stuff up front. Stuff like supply and demand, and how much supply they will be provided.

Called up AT&T customer services 5 min ago.  While I was talking with them about some other issues I asked about the "back-order" status of the iphone for premier customers.  The CSR put me on hold and when she came back she said the backorder is removed.  I check the site and sure enough - no more back-order. 

 

She also said that the phones would ship tomorrow, but who knows if thats true based off of all the the reports from other CSRs.

 

Ordered from Premier June-10th .

Re: Who ordred and whats the status of your iPhone 3GS order??

Alright everyone, I spoke to my cousin who works at ATT and this is what he said (summary):

 

-everyone who ordered on a premier account would have the backorder status shown, even if it's not.  

 

-backorder will be removed once the phone ships (unknown why only premier users have the backorder status)

 

-phones will ship tomorrow via next day air and everyone should receive them on friday

 

-there are plenty of phones, not sold out...everyone should receive them friday

 

 

 

This is what he told me.  Obviously all this is not confirmed, but it makes me a little more optimistic about getting my phones on friday.

Re: Who ordred and whats the status of your iPhone 3GS order??

Okay I am majorly confused?

 

I ordered at 10am EST on June 9th.

 

originally, the balance was taken out of my card, but now it is back.

my order is showing online that it is "in progress"

 

but when I call the telephone number it tells me some items are backordered.

 

But when i spoke to the lad at AT&T tonight he told me that it would be shipping tomorrow, and that is when I will be charged again and the phone will ship.

 

 

Im just worried because the balance came off my card, any advice?

Re: Who ordred and whats the status of your iPhone 3GS order??

I also had this happen to me. I spent some time with several helpful AT&T CSR's today (WAY better than Sprint, who I have been waiting to leave, until the new iPhone was issued), and they told me not to worry, that things should be fine. I ordered 6/12. I get more and more nervous about getting it in the first bach though, as I see more and more people posting that their's are showing shipped status.
