    i agree with the no preordering anymore. i ordered from at&t early saterday(day after launch), and the tracking notification has not changed since then. which is the iphone is on backorder. then i walked into at&t on friday evening, and they had a few left in stock -.- i was pissed lol. they wont even let me cancel my preorder to pick one up from the store.
    I ordered early morning day of preorder and my status still hasn't changed.

    I took the day off waiting for UPS because I didn't want to miss the delivery. I figured I would have taken the day off after waiting in line all night anyhow. I felt like I kept waiting and waiting.

    The guy that delivered mine at 5 said he still had 80 stops to go. I actually feel bad now for feeling like I was waiting.

    Glad to have my phone! it is amazing.
    I felt bad for being annoyed when I saw it was my normal guy lol. He is so nice and I could only imagine how busy he had been and god knows how many other packages he had to deliver. I just wish I would have known it was him and he was just super super busy because I would have gone to the gym, took care of errands I needed and maybe went shopping or something instead of sitting around my house like some freak in my pj's with the tv basically on mute listening for when the truck went by haha and it was garbage day I went for the door at least 3 times. The other guy that occasionally delivers will knock on the glass sliding door in the back next to the garage and if you don't run out and answer immediately he will straight up leave a "sorry we missed you tag" and take off instead of getting out of his truck and walking up the path and ringing the front doorbell. I just felt bad for the driver and hope nobody was rude to him because they were waiting all day.

    My delivery person didn't knock OR ring the doorbell. I found out it was delivered at 7:11pm by randomly checking my shipping status at 7:30pm online. I know the dude was busy but wow mix in a knock or something. Life is well now, got my phone, it owns.

    Yeah, it took me about 4 seconds to come down from my fit of rage. Then, I realized it had to activate it...over the phone... Further rage ensued.

    I had no issues with my OTA, which is suprising because not to be a negative nancy but things never go right for me lol, I am a walking murphy's law. I have read about the issues people have been having and my phone has been 99% perfect, I guess I was always meant to have 4s haha.

    Well, lucky you. It wouldn't activate OTA on mine so I tried online. It then told me I had to change something on my plan which was BS. I tried online again and I guess they got tired of my antics so the webpage suggested I call. Womp, womp. 99% perfect? You a lotting for the slimmest margins of error???

    I had trouble activating OTA, as well. I waited for about 3 hours before I gave up and went to the AT&T store. Once in the hands of "professionals"my phone was up and running in less than an hour. Though, not before some random guy named Dave got his SIM card wiped out , but that's a story for another day.

    Just remember you can tap on the bubble after it shows you what you said so you can correct it. It's my understanding that Siri learns and adapts to your accent after some use.

    I feel that preorder should be delivered the day before launch day.. Most of my friends went to the stores ( apple, sprint, vz, att) and already have their new toy.. in contrast i preordered and still waiting at 450pm New York time.

    the purpose of preordering is useless !
    Seriously?! You demand to have your preorder delivered the day BEFORE launch?! Good luck with that with ANY device!
    pre = before than... i'm not demanding.. its what it is.. preordering is scks lol
    Did you not "order" your phone "before" launch?

    I assume anyone that ordered a phone after the first 2 or 3 days of pre-ordering would be getting them after launch day.

    I have the first Pre-order at a Best Buy store in New Jersey. I pre-ordered on the 7th at 10am. Unfortunately no Best Buy's in my area or a 35 mile radius have received and iPhone 4S for Sprint yet, so Saturday I also ordered one from the Sprint Store and I am still waiting for that to come in. The Sprint store is receiving them 3 at a time per day. I will no longer pre-order at Best Buy as I have done for years on all launch phones. I will stand in line launch day with the rest of the fanboys and fangirls. This has been the most trying experience. They say I will have it this week but this experience has dulled the moment for me right now and I am filled with jealousy. lol

    I preordered my iPhone 4S from ATT. I got it Friday at 9:40AM. I called ATT and had my new iPhone 4S switched to my account. It was easy! I will preorder my next iPhone, too.

    Pretty amazing to read the demands and expectations of people for a phone. Sure I was excited about getting mine and it arrived about 5:15. But it beats standing in line any day...As one of the other posts said the biggest frustration was trying for 4 hours to get through to the server. Over all not bad for handling over a million phones. Patience is a virtue my friend

    Honestly...i say let those who complain about delivery times on pre-orders wait in line like they want. Let them experience one of those 10 hour waits where the activations go down and they can't process people in or out for long periods of time, making even those close to the front of the line wait and wait and wait...

    And god forbid you're outside during the typical summer release times...here in Atlanta, you'd enjoy such creature comforts as 100% humidity, 95 degree temperatures, random deluge thunderstorms...did i mention you'd be in this for many many hours, and may not get an iPhone even if you were there at the crack of dawn?

    Yeah dude...feel free to do the whole line thing, i'd expect you'll enjoy it when the next iPhone comes out...as for me, i'll be happy and content pre-ordering and having it shipped, even if i don't get it on launch day, it beats the hell out of doing all that mess above (which i have personally done...ALL of it).

    There were hardly any lines where I'm at. The next iphone should have more demand so i'd expect bigger lines. But i'm likely to preorder from apple first thing.

    Pre-order simply means that you wont have to wait in lines for long as well as you will never hear things like "OUT OF STOCK"...

    Apart from that no one will ever give you a pre-launch of the iphone. This is how the rules of pre-orders are!

    Dude it's a pre-ORDER, not a pre-DELIVERY. Pre-order means ordering before release. It does not mean receiving before release.

    Exactly, it is a pre-order. Which means it should be delivered before anyone who did not pre-oder gets theirs.
