    So not really drama but, just a question lol...I pre-ordered the 4s but did it late on Friday so im looking at a shipment date of the 21-28th... I was contemplating on just going to the Sprint store to get one on launch day. Assuming Apple wont ship my pre-ordered 4s before friday, i was wondering how long do you think it will take Apple to refund me? And, is it a good idea to do this?....Sorry im just one of those annoying impatient people that need things on the first day hehe.

    This should be an instant refund from Sprint and they will put you're upgrade back on and charge your 199$ as an Account Credit. Just go in the store and use the credit towards the iPhone.

    Did you order through Apple, and did you also pay with a CC or a debit card? Refunds usually take 3-5 days to show up on a debit card, so your refund might be there by Friday it just depends on how fast it's processed on both the company and the banks end. I'm not really familiar with CC terms, I don't buy anything I can't pay for outright so I don't use my CC for purchases but I do always see it takes 1-2 billing cycles for your refund to show up on a return form so just by going off of that I would say it wouldn't get to you by Friday. If you bought it through Sprint I would ask how long it would take for basicaly a store credit to show up on your account before asking for that so you don't wind up being stuck with no phone and no money.

    Sorry! Maybe you will get a surprise on the 14th. Apple might have sold out but I honestly don't think they did because EVERY model gives the same ship estimate and it's hard to believe every gb size on every carrier is completely sold out. Good luck with your phone
