Apple Store - Shipping/Delivering
OK so Im at the check out and have few Shipping options ranging from Free-$16.00 However no matter which one you choose, it says Delivery June 19th
Does this mean Apple will SHIP on 19th or does it mean that if you choose the $16 Next Buisness day , they guarantee a Street Date delivery (19th)....
Thanks for your help

I called Apple on this and no, you will not get it on the 19th. I pretty much told them their site is pretty misleading and they gave me free overnight shipping. She also told me there is a chance it will be shipped earlier to make the 19th.

Congrats on your order.
However , in regards to those who didnt order yet - like my self , i would wait until they send out a OS 3.1 or 3.0.1. Even though this is their 3rd irriteration of iPhone OS , it still might be buggy.
Last Year I waited 3 months. Party because I heard there were OS bugs and because I couldn't even find one.
But I might get this after I do some research and read some reviews. If it's good , I'll get it sooner.

ok just ordered mine. Chose expedited , they said it is guaranteed to be delivered by June 19th.
Went with Black 16Gb.
The lady helping me said she doesn't think that I can just take my SIM out of my current 3G and put it in my new 3GS, but I can't see why it wouldn't be possible. Thoughts ?!

So apple.com specifically states
Pre-order an iPhone 3G S from the Apple Online Store and it will arrive on June 19 with free shipping.

yeah rayjh, it isn't misleading it is very clear in stating it will be delivered by the 19th which is why I went with the free shipping! if this is not the case then its not a matter of misunderstanding it is a matter of being lied to.
got the #Gs 34gb black!!!! cant hardly wait!

hmm well cant argue there because I'm still waiting for said email. but on the end of my order status page It clearly states "delivered by June 19th" now whether or not they rescind that promise in forthcoming emails we will see. so, no it is not misleading. if it does not get here on the 19th I was lied to.
I only care because I want my phone asap and if this was not stated so clearly I would have paid for overnight shiping.

I just doublechecked my confirmation e-mail and it very specifically says Ships: Delivered by June 19. There is no other date listed anywhere on the confirmation, other than my order date which was yesterday. Therefore, I am lead to believe that this means I will receive my iPhone on June 19.
I also live in a town with a UPS hub, and things tend to get here VERY quickly, so I'm wondering if there's a chance I may see it early.
Either way, I don't really care. It beats driving an hour and 15 minutes one-way to stand in line and have them be sold out at the AT&T store. If it comes a couple days later, at least I'll have it and I will have saved the gas money.
Well I live out in the boonies and my email also says DELIVER by JUNE 19th.
So they are making sure that we all will get them on street date.
If you plan to pick it up from local store, Keep in mind, if youre a current AT&T customer and you RESERVE one as an UPGRADE, you will have access to yours 7AM, before others do (normal store hours)....

if you read it a little closer you'll see there are three options
1. go in and reserve a phone at a retail store
2. reserve a phone online for pickup at a particular store
---both requiring you to still stand in line at said store---
3. order online for home delivery
standing in line means it is possible the store can run out even if you preorder. preordering does get you in line ahead of those who did not preorder.
choosing home delivery bypasses all that and according to both my order status page and my order confirmation email. My new phone will be "Delivered by June 19th"
there have been rumblings of home delivery option meaning that the phone will ship on the 19th and actually being delivered up 5 days after. so those are your options

Also, Apple just sent out an e-mail introducing the new iPhone. In the e-mail, it says:
"Have a new iPhone 3G S delivered right to your door on June 19 when you order from the Apple Online Store."
I'd say that there's no way you'll get it after the 19th if they have it in print this many times. I'd say it's safe to say ordering from apple.com will all but guarantee that you will have the iPhone in your hand on June 19.

This is what they told me: Pre-orders for iPhone 3G S will be shipped with overnight priority and will be processed to arrive as early as June 19, 2009, if submitted by 12 p.m. noon C.T., June 17, 2009. The actual shipment date and receipt of your order is not guaranteed and may be subject to delays for reasons that include, but are not limited to, product availability, inventory, credit issues, number porting or carrier delays, and completion of other required AT&T business processes.
Think I'm screwed?
