    Just like happened last year, Apple will have UPS/Fedex hold any deliveries until the 14th.
    Last year it was different. (iphone 4). Most of us got it a day or two before release date.
    However with 3GS , they put a hold on them till release date !

    Hopefully TiPB gets a hold of this "corporate email", to help solve this issue, or at least put some rest to it. After some more reading, it looks like I'm not the first person who was told about the 6PM cutoff to receive it on the 14th.


    EDIT* - I just checked again and now my date is back to the 14th! Everyone may want to go check again.

    Got confirmation email at 1:59 central. Was to ship/deliver on the 14th. Earlier this am switched to the 21rst and just now went back to the 14th.
    I'm going with there is a glitch in the system.

    I ordered a Black 32GB iPhone 4S for Verizon at 10:45am Friday (EST) and originally had the 10/14/11 shipping date. It remained that date until this morning. It switched to 10/21/11 for about 8 hours and as of now it has gone back to the initial 10/14/11 shipping date

    So check your order status because chances are it jumped back to 10/14

    Still haven't received the confirmation email from ATT! WTF? I ordered it at 8 in the morning Friday through telesales since I couldn't set up a new family plan with two phones online (not for lack of trying...stayed up until 5am eastern trying to order online ). My card was charged within 30 minutes, but still no confirmation email. I have called ATT twice and they say that they can see the order and that it is just being reviewed. Should I be worried about not getting it next Friday? Does anyone know if the shipping queue is based on the order time or from when you confirm from the email??

    Had to wait for my iPhone 4 to sell and didnt get to order until this morning, so i won't be getting mine until the end of the month :-(. My emal from Apple said it will ship in 1-2 weeks, but said delivery between Oct 21- 31. Kind of a bummer.

    Ordered mine black, 32GB from Sprint. No upgrade, so I'm putting up the full price to get off my Nexus S 4G to get back to iOS (gave up my 3GS for an EVO 4G to go to Sprint because of reception issues at work).

    Ordered afternoon on Friday on Sprint site, have not received e-mail confirmation yet, but they did charge my card.

    I don't believe your card was actually charged. When you do a preorder, a temp 3 day hold is placed on the card in the amount of the purchase to make sure that the funds are there. After the 3 days the hold is removed. Your credit card won't be charged until your order has shipped.

    I ordered from AT&T on the 7th at 11AM and haven't received a confirmation email either. The email doesn't really matter to be perfectly honest. If won't effect your order getting shipped. Last year there were a lot of complaints from customers who also never received an email from AT&T. They still received their iPhone 4 on time and were able to track the shipping themselves from AT&T's website... So, don't worry about the email. As long as you and the rep who you spoke to can see that your 4S order is in the system you will receive it.

    That's good to hear, so maybe the 6PM cutoff was true.
