Well for the space gray I had 4 phones on order. When I started I was 17-20, now those are 2-5. I just assumed. Regardless that just makes my point more clear.
Who knows, perhaps it's as simple as Corporate customers are captive and consumers have the ability to freelance if not satisfied. Either way, it's been this way for years so the delay should be expected before submitting your reservation. Many, myself included, have found phones much quicker using the Apple reserve site. If getting a new phone in a hurry is a top priority for you, then get off the Corp plan and take up a consumer plan.
I used to think that way but I've realized that phoning/tweeting/social media is a good way to put pressure on companies and I'm going to stick with it. It has worked for me in the past and I hope it does again. I don't agree with their policy and I am trying to change it (at least for me, if not for everyone). If it doesn't work I may have to look at your advice more closely but until I get a definite no and my phone is not going to show up until possibly November, I'm going to keep plugging away.
I've been on the "In Progess" stage for a week for the Upgrade 6+, SG 128 GB. Difficult to determine the time of delivery and worse when you can't cancel and order from Apple.
@junior77 I've tried that too, those buggers disappear fast!
@Omro - Not all business clients are posting here.....I do not check very often but I have seen maybe 15-20 Business clients post here, so it isn't really accurate to base your judgement on that basis. Obviously those who have received their phone are not looking for a forum to ask questions since they have their phone.
I believe the way it should be done is first come first serve, regardless of business or consumer status.
If you don't want to wait there is a great site that will text you when the phone is available at a store of your choice! Its amazing.
On a side note, I am still in progress 😞 hopefully it ships tomorrow or tonight 😞 or I may just go to the warehouse and get it myself.....LOL
If they are only waiting on speakers then I would just say send it without, I'd rather have my phone then some $40 speaker....
