Post anything related about the iPhone 5 Corporate or Business accounts on this thread i am posting.
As for your question. No one really knows why its not moving. This is a answer no one can give you the right one. It could be many things.
Most likely yours will change sometime next week. The number do not mean much anyways. Its the status that means something.
one of the main reasons though is that the business line only drops for cancellations.
people have been at 600-700 and their phone has shipped, but we still don't know about it because our line doesnt move for shipped phones ...
since we don't get to have ANY idea what is going on with our line (unlike consumer - the closer they get to zero, the closer they are to their phone), this forum has made a google doc so business customers can track
and yeah, pls post on the other thread meowmix linked you to!
Just realised that there is a NEW section named "Reservation Validation History" after "Hardware Changed History" at the end of the detail page. Anyone has any idea what this is? Also, there is nothing inside, just the heading.
3 phones in queue since Sept. 19th... 2 black, 1 white (all 16G). We received the white one yesterday, but had no advanced warning (text or email), it just arrived.
The 2 blacks haven't updated their status since the original order date (Sept 19). Below is a copy of the white's status (for the spreadsheet)

Added, FYI re the white, we have the phone now, however the order queue still shows it at #706, so this confirms that the queue position is of little or no use in estimating when you will get your phone. In our case anyway. Our black ones are currently #1416 / #1417 'Prefulfillment'
I went to activation at midday today for my 16GB Black after ordering on 17 Sept.
Last night I was ~745 of 4049 and now it shows 0 of 4049.
Other people got their phones and the numbers never changed.
This system is absolutely random.
