    Ordered a 16gb black DF on July 18th. Still backordered.

    What's really the killer is I checked all the apple stores around me and everyone of them had every phone in stock today.

    Because I have a company discount on my plan I'm unable to buy it from the apple store.

    I really hate apple more than I did before.

    I also have a discount and when I activated at the apple store I had to call ATT and have them take off the discount for activation only. do you get a discount on the phone itself or the service plan?

    I have a discounted service plan. Something like 15% a month off my bill. I didn't get any kind of discount on the phone itself even though I'm eligible for an upgrade. My contract has been up for almost 5 months now and I've been waiting for the 3G to resign.

    you have the same discount I do. you can buy at an apple store, I did. I would suggest calling ATT Premiere beforehand (or while you're in line for the phone) and have them take the discount off and explain you're getting a phone. that's what I had to do AFTER waiting 2 hours for the phone and it added about 25 minutes while the apple tech looked at sports scores online, ha.

    I went back to ATT today and had the discount reinstated. just letting you know.

    I actually thought about removing the discount but I think that is rediculous just so I can wait 2+ hours for the phone itself. Then even more time just to have the discount added again.

    I ordered my phone DF on July 18th and still nothing as of today but yet all the apple stores keep getting phones in. Absolutely rediculous! The phone is paid for but still backordered. What's even worse is the fact that the AT&T stores are getting them in and selling them to the general public.

    I'm at the point where I'm gonna tell Apple and AT&T where they can stick it.. lol. Worst release of any product ever and I've been there for the Wii, PS3, N64, etc.

    Just like MANY people waiting for their DF from ATT, I started to think I made the wrong choice when I could have walked down to the Apple store here and snagged a 3G this morning, I called and they had plenty I was told. There was a line but still enough for the size of the line. I called to see about canceling my DF but was told They could not. Whatever I thought, I didn't have the energy to try and get an explanation from the ATT sales person and prepared myself for the long wait. Well, my wait turned out to be short lived. I checked my status again just now and "SHIPPED"! I have to say it is true, the 16GB White model is shipping MUCH faster. For me, I ordered Monday 7/28 in the a.m... Shipped on 7/30... Delivery/Pick up 7/31

    I really feel for those waiting for the Black models. Good luck guys...

    YOU CAN CANCEL YOUR DF ORDERS!!!!

    You just have to do it at the store you made your DF purchase BEFORE your status turns to "shipped." If you call any toll free number they will tell you that you cannot... but you can.. by calling/going into the store you made the DF order. I PROMISE... I did it.. no questions asked.

    However, it took a week for the $322 hold to come off my credit card. (They never charged me.. just put a hold on the card. Something to think about if you have a small credit limit on your card.)
