    Well, I didn't want to lose my upgrade [business account; long story], so I ordered an iPhone 4S from AT&T today (I did it in the shop).

    It should be here in 21 to 28 days. I'll use my iPhone 4 till then.

    I don't think I've ever ordered a mobile phone and had to wait almost a month for the delivery of it. This will be interesting...

    It is a bit insane that AT&T can't get stock faster. Apple can get it within a week or two at most. Not sure that AT&T needs another 2 weeks on top of apple to get a phone to its customer.

    I was just at the Apple store yesterday. They said they still have plenty. There were people still lined up outside the store to buy them! Craziness.

    I probably would've had to go through that with Sprint if I hadn't gotten mine from the Apple store. So if you didn't use your upgrade, then you paid full price for a 4S (and you already have an iPhone 4)?

    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...

    I think if I was getting the 64GB, I'd get one much quicker. But, I'm simply not rolling like that
    Alternatively if I didn't have the type of business account that we have with AT&T, I probably would have gone to Apple...

    Oh well, I'm in no rush [This time], and I have my iPhone 4, with iOS5 on it, to keep me busy.

    They can, but AT&T had to have a manager add a code to my account to allow my upgrade.
    I ported from AT&T to Verizon for about three days. When I returned to AT&T, because it was a business account, when they add your number and device back to the network, they restart your contract to two years...

    So, when you want to get a new device, a manager has to edit your account at the AT&T shop. But, this doesn't happen on normal accounts only business accounts. I was MAD!

    At least the AT&T manager took care of it.

    LOL - that would help, wouldn't it?

    I'm trying to stay on the straight and narrow now.

    Now I'm trying to get iCloud working correctly, i.e. deliver email PUSH...

    my early upgrade date is Nov 25th, all 16gb models were out of stock here in Souhtwest Florida, a couple of days ago the Apple store looked like "iphone launch day" with huge lines, can't wait to get the 4S ( eventhough that means I'll have to get the next phone at full retail price ) but I'm really looking forward to use the camera.

    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....

    Hello!

    I remember you way back from the BB forums (PCgirl on CB.com and BBForums, username wasn't available on here and I'm no longer on a PC anyway )! My husband and I recently went all-Apple and replaced our 9700's with the iPhone 4S. Nice to see a familiar face!

    Lovin' the iPhone 4S but I have multiple email accounts and am having "customizable EMAIL notification and signatures withdrawal"!

    You should be getting your new phone soon. My business partner ordered hers (also white 16gb) a week ago through the business account and it has already 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.

    For me I was told by my AT&T rep that I had to be within a MONTH of my contract date, not w/i the same month.. my contract is up on Dec. 7th so he told me I could order the phone on Nov 7th...w/o paying the hefty price... So.... ONE....MORE....WEEK....AND....COUNTING!!!
