    I am seeing that Verizon is having some delay problems, or that may be a glitch. I ordered mine around 6pm on 10/7 and it still says to be delivered on 10/14, anyone experiencing a 10/21 delay? Is the cutoff only for Verizon? Sorry if this is redundant.

    No sign (yet) of backorder from Sprint. I got my order in quite early though.

    yup, like most carriers and also the apple store the site crashed the day of the release but not a peep as far as backorders with sprint

    Check Sprint | Check Your Order Status and enter your order number. I haven't gotten the shipping email yet, but I found the tracking number there.

    Anyone order through Apple for Sprint? Mine still says preparing for shipment, delivery date 10/14. Am I supposed to be receiving an email from sprint and apple with a tracking number? Or just one or the other? Thanks in advance.

    Same here!

    I called to see if they could give me the new number for that line and the guy I spoke with did say that if you were in, before they started listing any as OOS, then no delays are expected.

    You should be getting an email from the site you ordered it from.

    Yeah, I've never understood how all this shipping business works. But, Sprint is being very careful about making it clear that just because there is a tracking number assigned, it doesn't necessarily mean it's going to ship out "today". In the shipping email I received, the following statement shows up under my tracking number:

    Please note: If you pre-ordered an iPhone, your device is waiting to be shipped. Excluding extreme circumstances, we will do our best to get it to you Friday, October 14 or Saturday, October 15. Your tracking number included above may not be updated until Friday, October 14. Questions? Visit sprint.com/preorder

    When I ordered mine, it just ran out on the sprint site, literally seconds, so I went to apple and they still had them, therefore I should be in the clear, I mean it still says 10/14.

    Well, being a Sprint customer for almost 8 years, I've seen nightmares with pre-orders being "mis-queued" per say. So, I can see why they would put that message there to CYA.... especially now with the iPhone. I tried calling today while at work... but the freakin hold time for the order dept was way too long. I'll have to callback later tonight.

    The 16gb model that sells for $199 is sold out on pre-order, at least through Sprint the 32gb and 64gb models are still available for pre-order purchase

    This ^^^

    I remember this fiasco when the Tour launched. OMG there were some seriously peeved people out there, and rightfully so too!

    And I'm really hoping this didn't happen to me. I will not be a happy camper.
