    Sporadic shortages are weird with this phone...a co-worker ordered hers last friday, and was told to expect a 14 day wait. Right down the road at the Apple store (not 30min. away from her), people were walking in and getting a phone...
    Same. I had a friend walk in and buy one at Verizon last week. Yet the apple store online has a wait. Strange.

    It has been 3 weeks and counting..... very upsetting. I have been an AT&T customer for years. I have also purchased my cell phones from the same store for the last 15 years. They used to be Cellular One when I got my first one. Oh well....
    After deciding just this weekend that I was using an upgrade to get the 4s because my daughter wanted to use it to get a 8gb io4...yeh right! (She got my 16gb 4) I took a chance and called my local Sam's club and they had just received 10 16gb white 4S's for AT&T. Went after work (5 hours later) and they still had 8! At&t and Best Buy both told me 1 month....

    Just to jump in on this one, my wife and I each ordered a white and black (respectively) iphone 4s 16GB from an ATT store on October 20. At the time, we were told 21 to 28 days. They haven't shipped yet. Anyone else place a similar order and get it already?

    I ordered from Apple on 10/20, 12 days ago, and for the last 5 days it has just been in Preparing for Shipment stage. I mean really? 5 days to prepare an iphone for shipment?

    My business partner stepped out of the office for 20 minutes today and of course that's when FedEx came by with her phone. They didn't leave it with the management office (they sign for all our packages, regardless of value or size) like they usually do.

    Booooo FedEx.

    My partner ordered hers a little over a week ago and would have gotten it today but she had stepped out of the office. She'll have it tomorrow.

    LVMHgirl, clearly no lunch is allowed in your office

    I'm still waiting for them to even 'process' my order. I bet it gets here AFTER my BlackBerry 9900 from AT&T, and that would be bloody weird...

    LOL!

    Yours should ship any day now. She ordered the exact same one you did, also through a business account. But it would definitely be weird if the 9900 got there first!

    While I do love my new iPhone 4S, I must say that I *almost* got the 9900 so I could stay with BB and it's custom EMAIL goodies as well as my unlimited T-Mobile plan. I just wouldn't have synched it with my macbook (it only does 2-way sync with the macbook overriding the device info) and then would only do backups to protect the address book and data since I don't access my address book through my macbook anyway. It's truly a great device.

    For those that don't want to wait 2-3 weeks for shipment of their 4S, the Apple "Reserve the night before, pick up in store the next day" program worked great for me today.

    Last night at precisely 9:00 I went to Apple.com and reserved a Black AT&T 32GB 4S at the Apple store at the Perimeter Mall in Atlanta. If you try to reserve one even one minute before 9:00PM you will get a "none available" message. But, at the stroke of 9:00 suddenly you'll see the phones they have available.

    I reserved mine and got to the store at about 11:30 AM today. They had a small queue line setup outside the store (maybe 10 people) and they would take people in to get their reserved phone a few at a time.

    I waited about 20 minutes, then it was my turn. Went in, got my phone, paid for it, got it activated, and walked out about 10 minutes later. Pretty painless all in all. Definitely better than ordering online and waiting a few weeks for it to be shipped.

    Not sure if you are aware of this or not, but if you are on AT&T there is a new not very known policy that "should" allow you to get your upgrade on day 1 of the month you are eligible. That means you are like me and can order yours for the discount price tomorrow.
    Update: my scheduled upgrade was for Nov 15th and as of 11/1 I am now magically eligible for an upgrade. This shows up via AT&T and Apple. Hope this helps some of you out. Time to find my iphone. :-)

    So I reserved a 16g from apple at 9 tonight for VZ, I have 5 lines and the primary is up for upgrade, this line is under my sons number because of the way we ordered our phones the last time but I can upgrade and take it and give him my phone.

    Its a White one but not sure if I want to hold out for a black one, hmmm

    My question is when I pick it up at Apple do I have to go to VZ store and have them change it over to my number, how does it work?

    Call around! I just kept checking my local stores (around noon, after shipments are delivered) and hit pay-dirt on Monday.

    I am in the same exact position lol. My wife and I ordered 1 black and 1 white 16GB iPhone 4S from an AT&T store on October 20th. We were told 14-21 days and it looks like it is still back ordered.
