    if you are still backordered for quite a while through your service provider I would give ordering it through apple.com a try. I ordered the white 16gb for ATT through apple.com on 10/13 and was given an estimated 1-2 week ship date and it's status changed to "preparing for shipment" just yesterday, only 9 days after I ordered it. This was much quicker than I expected since I ordered it so late. So, though you might have to wait a week and a half, apple seems to be atleast estimating the date pretty accurately.

    Ordered my 4s in the Verizon store on 10/15 with an original ship date of 10/28. Credit card got charged today and when I checked my tracking status it said "Ship by 10/28." Within three hours, I got a real tracking number in an e-mail with a delivery date of 10/25 by 3pm Now the waiting game....


    EDIT: Got delivered before 3. I am one happy girl!

    I ordered a black one 10/18 but I've been hearing conflicting statements from Verizon as to when I'll actually get it. Some reps say this Saturday (10/29) or next Saturday (11/4). I check the status of my order with Verizon and I get a screen that lists my order number, but no tracking number which I knew wouldn't be there because it hasn't shipped. Some users have been able to see when their ship date is by checking their order number, but there is nothing there for me other than the order number and a blank spot where the tracking number goes.

    Guess we'll see. I'd do cartwheels naked through the streets if I get it this weekend.

    I ordered the same thing through verizon and mine showed the same ship date. I didn't see any option for Saturday though
    I called and ordered mine through Verizon CSR. I had to pay extra for Saturday shipping, but it was either that or take a day off work and wait on FedEx. I had no one to sign for it.

    I ordered a white 32GB from Apple.com on 10/19. Status updated to "Preparing to Ship" last night (10/24). I was able to find the package at UPS.com, so they have the info but no tracking data yet. I suspect that it will probably arrive Tuesday or Wednesday of next week. I wish it would HURRY UP!

    This evening, I ordered a black 16GB iPhone 4S from Verizon. It will take about two weeks to arrive. Looking forward to trying it out after four years with Blackberry.

    I am sorry if I am asking a question that has already been asked. I ordered 2 16gb Iphone 4S via Att.com on 10/10/11. I been checking it over and over and noticed it still says backordered until just a moment ago i checked and it says my QTY ordered as 1 and then QTY backordered is 0.. does that mean it is ready to be shipped?

    Also, i noticed about a week ago that the preauth of funds wasn't showing in my account anymore?

    I just received shipment confirmation and tracking info. Apple says it will be delivered by Friday morning, FedEx says it will be Monday. I wonder who is right?

    FedEx is the one shipping it so you should trust them. Apple is just the one who gives the package to FedEx and they are giving you an estimated delivery date/day.

    I now have the expected delivery date of tomorrow for my 16g black iPhone I ordered 10-14-2011 using the AT&T upgrader app. And now my white 16g is showing zeros in the back order column so I guess it will be shipped tomorrow. I ordered the phones at the same time.

    Both are the 4S models
