I ordered mine on 10/18 through VZW. Black 64GB. Initially it said expected shipping date of 10/21. Then yesterday it changed to 10/28. But, tonight I got an email saying that it has shipped and will be delivered tomorrow. So, hopefully something like that plays out for everyone else.

Pre-Ordered a black 16gb iPhone 4GS from AT&T corporate store the evening of 10/7. AT&T order status has gone from "In Progress" to back-ordered...with no tracking or statement of shipment.
Same BS as last year with the iPhone 4 launch!!
AT&T blames Apple for not shipping the phones...Apple blames AT&T for botching the launch.
I don't care who's to blame...I just want my damn phone!!!

Ordered my white 32GB from Apple.com yesterday, hoping to avoid all of the launch traffic. Looks like maybe I didn't wait long enough.
It says it will deliver November 1-8. I can wait, but I'm not sure that my husband can. I talked him into hating his Blackberry Torch, so now he wants my 3GS. Which means that I needed a new iPhone! (Yes, I am evil.)

Ordered a white 16gb and a black 16gb from the iPhone app at&t upgrader on 10-14-2011 and still showing backordered. After the order was placed it then showed it will take 21 to 28 days to ship. Wow
I hope it ships earlier than that.
I will never order one online or on the phone again.
Not happy with AT&T on this deal.

Just got my FedEx tracking number. My iPhone will be delivered tomorrow the 21st by 3pm!!!
I'll have all weekend to get it set up just right.
Don't despair. When your order goes out of backorder status, everything happens really fast.
(Forgot to mention that I have not received any emails yet saying that it has shipped. This is what the AT&T order status page is showing.)

Back when I first placed my pre-order late I received an email stating my phones would arrive on the 21st.
Well on Tuesday the 18th received an email that my order was being processed then a few hours later another email that the phones had shipped. They shipped from Memphis TN Fed-Ex next day air and I received them on Wednesday the 19th.
Overall I'm pleased with the pre-order process and the new phones of course.

Just have to add my frustrations to this thread...
Ordered a 32gb black 4S in a local AT&T store on October 7th...still backordered. The sales rep assured me I should get it by launch, obviously that was not based on fact. When I called AT&T earlier today, the guy only gave me a 21-28 day delivery estimate! Wouldn't budge off anything but that number. Why did I go through the hassle of preordering a week in advance if I can't get my phone within 2 weeks of actual launch?? I needed this phone before I leave for vacation this coming Thursday, I never would have imagined not having it by then. Never EVER going through ATT again to order anything.
just to add: my boss ordered his 32gb black 4S thru Verizon on Saturday (the 15th). He received it on Tuesday. Love it...

I ordered from ATT B&M on 10/7 approx 1pm CDT. I was getting a little annoyed that we still had no information and that one of the local apple stores happen to have stock sitting in their store. well, that and all the mass amounts of contradicting information in this and other forum threads. i had finally decided to go to the att store tomorrow to try to cancel my order and just go pick it up at the apple store.
I was trying to reserve an appt with the apple store to go pick up a phone tomorrow, but their site is getting hammered. so while i was waiting i checked my order status and it has changed from back-ordered! i don't yet have tracking info, but this is better than nothing.
so, the point is, keep your chins up. hopefully it will come soon, or that you can cancel your orders and just go pick one up locally.
and apparently it doesn't hurt to start to threaten to purchase the device elsewhere
