    Mine switched over to "Prepared for Shipment" late yesterday afternoon. Still no shipping info, but I'm feeling confident for a promised Friday delivery date. In the meantime I'm looking forward to OS 3.0 and an UltraSn0w unlock for my current iPhone 3G.

    I assume that the "Receiver" is Apple and that the "Future Date" is 6/19 but the whole procedure is misleading and awkward.

    I preorder through an ATT store since my wife and I both wanted an Iphone(our first ones) and my tracking also says the receiver requested a hold.

    Since our phones are being delivered to a store they have to deliver them before the 19th. So maybe there's hope that you guys getting them shipped to your houses will get them tomorrow.

    I ordered from Apple on the 8th. I am still stuck at prepared for shipment. I called Apple this morning and the CS person told me that my shipment was coming from a US location and would be shipped tomorrow overnight. Apple is still saying it will be here by the 19th.

    i ordered from premier... just got off the phone with them. premier has a seperate inventory from the rest of att. this is all according to the customer service rep. he was able to check the status of mine even tho it still says pending on the website. he said it will be shipped on the 18th and will be to my house on the 19th. this is just an fyi for those of you who are waiting to hear anything and you ordered from premier. dont know if this has already been covered somewhere.

    Looks like Apple and UPS are backpedaling with the estimated delivery date issue. The exception notification is now gone from the shipment status on ups.com and now it only says that it's arrived in Louisville, KY:

    Yes and I wish it would get to where it's supposed to be more quickly.
    Mine was initially scheduled for the 18th, then that disappeared and no date was listed. Then the exception information disappeared and now the scheduled date is back to the 18th. Not going to plan for it being here until Friday. Seems they (Apple and UPS) planned for something that UPS botched.

    irvingc, that is good news! I too ordered on the Premier site and still has the "order will be process" message. I tried calling Premier yesterday but could not get through. I may in fact call again today just to be sure. Thanks for the info!

    my UPS tracking changed... now its back to arriving today, but last in Louisville KY.. at 206 am today.

    scheduled delivery today too. weird.

    someone mentioned an issue with customs, wonder if the issue is that the packages are now being released? rather than Apple's intervention?

    Oh man,when I called customer service today they were so clueless. They couldn't give me any info at all. They told me the devices were shipping from Apple and gave me a number to call. It was Apple's iPhone support line. The guy there just reconnected me to AT&T. Sooo frustrating! But I'm not giving up hope.

    The automated voice on their help line said if you ordered before wednesday, the 17th, your order will arrive on june, the 19th. If ordered wednesday, your order will arrive 2-4 days after shipping. Looks like I barely made it!
