    Well, since I missed the boat for an in store reservation for a 7 plus on the upgrade program (bought the 6s plus with it so I have to go in to get it) I'm thinking of going for a 256GB 7 in matte black instead of the 128GB Plus in Jet Black that I originally wanted because there's still reservations available for them. Someone talk me out of it. I keep trying to tell myself I don't need the extra camera/etc. on it but I'll probably kick myself if I do it.

    Going by my experience in the past, things are looking good for us . I don't remember Preparing For Shipment status this quick unless our phones will arrive on the 16th or few days after. Also for two times that I've pre-ordered in the past the estimated shipping date were always exaggerated and have received the phone a week before.
    I hope you're right. I placed my order pretty quick and I was disappointed to see that shipping date lol.

    Preordered a black 7+, 128 GB on Verizon last night. Estimated delivery is 10/12 but I'm hoping it arrives a bit sooner. Sadly, I'm a bit nervous about my color choice - I've had the white faceplate since back in the 4S days!

    I preordered my 7+ 256 RG (ATT) from Best Buy last night. I didn't need the 256 but that was the only model left that wasn't sold out. Set to pick up on the 16th. I had to make my last monthly payment that wasn't due until the 31st I in order to be eligible for the upgrade on ATT NEXT. Trading in my 6s+ 64 RG I got from them last year. Only had to pay the sales tax. Got the $7.99/mo Apple Care. My payments will actually be a couple dollars less on NEXT. Not sure why that is since I'm upgrading from 64 to 256. I got a confirmation of pick up date immediately after placing the order. I've only seen 1 other person ordering from Best Buy on here so hoping pick up date holds true.

    The ordering process was trying; I encountered various difficulties... After failing to place my order through the Apple Store app, I finally succeeded on my PC through the Apple website. I ordered a Black 256GB 7 Plus on AT&T. It has a delivery date range of Sep 28 - Sep 30. Hours later, I got an email with a reservation number from one of those failed attempts. I tried placing another order with the reservation but got a later delivery date range: Sep 29 - Oct 3. Needless to say, I will try getting the iPhone I want at a store on September 16th. I wish all of you luck in getting your new iPhones as soon as possible.

    Rumor only.. I have read in other posts that there will be ZERO Jet Blacks delivered anywhere on 9/16. That the Jet Black's are not slated to ship or deliver until either October or November now. Seems odd, because they were showing available overnight in 256GB for 9/16 delivery when I ordered my Matte Black.

    I can believe this. I remember when the 6 plus came out (I was with T-Mobile at the time) and they didn't get any plus in on launch day. At least where I was located. With the Jet Black being in high demand I can see them not having it right away in stores.

    Same here! Heading to my local Apple Store this coming Friday morning to wait in line and hope the one I want (either 128gb or 256gb Jet Black) is available to do through the upgrade program.

    I pre ordered my 7+ 128gb Gold from AT&T....I'm not going to be receiving the phone till the second week in October. It always seems like the plus has a later delivery date than the smaller one. I have had both the 6+ and 6s+ and have always had to wait for a much later ship date than the small phone. In the end it is so worth it. I'm addicted to the plus size!

    Yeah that's because everyone wants the bigger iPhone. Once you get the plus it's hard to go back to a regular size iPhone.

    I got my EIP agreement while I was still on the phone with the rep and signed it before hanging up, then received a confirmation that it was received. I called at 305am EST and was done with my order by 320am.
    Ah. I got mine this morning finally. The system sent me 18 emails. Ha.

    Despite having shipping dates of 10/14-10/21 for the iPhone 7 Plus 128GB Jet Black (submitted at 3:03 am EST via myAT&T mobile app) and 9/23-9/30 for the iPhone 7 Plus 128GB Gold (submitted at 3:07 am EST via myAT&T mobile app), my PayPal card has been charged the tax amount for both and they're showing as Preparing For Shipment. Shouldn't the status show as Backordered?

    If you've been charged, I would take it as a good sign that you may get it early.

    This is great news to receive, thank you for the feedback and I'll be sure to keep you all updated! My wife and I are excited about upgrading from our iPhone 6 Plus.

    Totally doubt it, will not see anything change (unless it's backorder status) until Monday.

    Maybe there at the other side of the big pond, but here in Holland they're the best rated carrier. I've never been disappointed with them.

    I've been switching between the 7 Plus forum here and on MacRumors and it is highly entertaining. Some people are getting hostile though, just want everyone to get their phone already so we can all have peace of mind.
