    I just checked my bank account and it's been moved from pending to a charge as of like 200 am this morning... In the past, with Sprint Iphone preorders, this means it's preparing to ship.... at least that's the way it's happened on my last 3 preorders... It has always pended.. And then when it gets ready to ship the charge comes thru. It's a step in the process anyway.

    I just went in and confirmed mine is a charge (it's not pending). I ordered mine at about 6 am central (I kept trying...but the sites weren't available). I kinda fell asleep around 5 am or I may have been able to order a bit earlier.

    I'm hoping the confirmed charge is a good sign. My order status has remained the same since Friday.

    Who knows for sure about the pending vs charge status? I do know the the past, with my Bank.. All of my preorders were pending until it was getting ready to ship. It's the way my bank has always handled preorder charges. All banks are diff I know, my brother ordered thru AT&T, and he has a diff bank than I do, but his was a charge after 2 hours. His ship date is weeks away.. Bank charge has always been a precursor for my bank and preorders . With the iphone 5 I preordered, I didn't get shipping info until like 500 am the day it arrived on launch day. Sprint kinda blows with getting shipment info out.

    My experience has been that the charge will hit upon shipment, but the pending charge may or may not drop off before then. Usually when it switches to a cleared charge, the order is officially on its way.

    Well I spoke to Sprint about those on Easy Pay and those of us who pre-ordered won't have to start paying until the phone is activated

    That sounds great. Now I won't have to fit-throw about it, haha!

    (Course, the 16th is 4 weeks out and my personal shipment window is 4-6 weeks so if they fulfill early it'd make sense to leave it - but if it shows up on Halloween I like the first payment date in November a little better).

    I just don't understand how sprint is the only one that has no good news...at least some on other carries are getting tracking #s with delivery dates. Gives some hope. With sprint so far, I still have to see anyone with a legitimate tracking etc. It's like they pumped everyone with their great deals, but ultimately had no 6+ available lol

    Well, there was a small bit of changed news - said those that ordered before 11am on Friday should expect them in "up to 3 weeks" and those that came in afterward should expect delivery in 4-6 weeks. I would bet those that were on the buzzer will probably see them at the beginning of next week, etc.

    Sprint CAN BE pretty bad about providing tracking information, but I ordered something (nothing to do with this phone) on Monday and got tracking info that evening so maybe they've gotten better, they just haven't started mailing the 6+ yet.

    From my understanding and speaking with someone in the store who was nice enough to talk to me explained that the only people who knows what's In the warehouse are those in the warehouse. The stores don't know what they will get until Thursday also he said that he was informed that they won't have 6+ in store until they fulfill the pre-orders and if they get 6+ in store it's a 90% chance that they go to those that pre-ordered.

    I'm betting that those of us that got our orders in online before 500 am will have a excellent chance at seeing them on launch day and a few days after. My sister that went into Sprint at 830 on Friday morning to order, was told online preorders that where already in the system would be filled before store preorders that morning. She's still pending bank charge as well. She thought it would be faster for delivery going into store. Told her it didn't work that way .. I'd ask Sprint store manager in front of her, he said first preorders had advantage... She's not a happy camper either.

    Technically if she went in on preorder day that's still a pre-order and according to Sprint as long as your order was placed before 11CST you are in the first batch! If you pre-ordered in a store is allocated from the stores inventory.

    Yes, your right it's still a preorder . My point was the earlier preorders say at 201am cst, and before the Sprint store opened, were ahead of her in preorder que. I also received the as long as you order before 1100 am cst you are in the up to 3 weeks batch email. I received another email from Sprint Monday saying that as long as you placed your order before 500 am CST you'd receive your order in up to 3 weeks. Sprint changed it 6 hours less. What's up with that?? Lol

    My sisters 6+ is being shipped to her, she is not picking it up at Sprint. That would be the only way it would be from the stores preorder stock .

    Your missing what I'm saying .. I've never said buying it in the store changes anything.. It doesn't make a bit of difference if you order online or in the store .. They are the same thing, yes . All I was saying is people who placed their order online, had a place higher in the preorder que than those who waited till Sprint opened at 8:00 am . The only advantage to ordering online is getting your preorder in earlier, and thus being higher in the preorder line . I'm sure being tired is not helping me explain what I mean . Lol

    The site goes down for maintenance every night. It won't be updated with any news tomorrow. People in another forum were excited last night about it and nothing changed for them the next morning.

    They did update the preorder page to say that the 6 will ship in 2-5 business days for everything except 16gb gray and silver versions (still 3 weeks). Nothing new for 6+ though.

    I ordered in store at 10 am CST on release day (that was when it opened). I was the first in store preorder and the rep, at that time, told me it could be "a couple weeks."

    My charge, as of yesterday, went from pending to charged so I am holding out hope.

    I checked this morning too and nothing has changed. Though I placed the order at 2:14am Friday, still shows 4-6 weeks.

    I believe all iPhone 6+ 16gb are 4-6 weeks because the demand is so much higher than the 64gb and 128gb.

    The latest:

    Sprint IPhone 6 Plus-imageuploadedbytapatalk1410977021.437256.jpg

    If you have any doubts about the plus it looks like you can change your mind and get a 6 by the middle of next week at the latest. Either the 6+ is vastly more popular or Apple severely underestimated demand.
