Re: iPhone 4S on reservation

Thanks for your input guys.  I won't be able to wait in line on Friday, I have patients first thing in the morning....booo.   At least I have the 3Gs so it's not too terribly slow.  My boyfriend has the 3G and it is painful to use.  Enjoy your new phones...whenever you get them!

Re: iPhone 4S on reservation

dudes its obvious that whoever has IN PROGRESS in their preorder status already got their iphone shipped out. For me i was number 20 and i was inprogress on monday. It said up to 4 days to ship so its gonna be in my store on friday.
Inprogress means it started the shipping process since you can't change ur store location anymore. So whoever got inprogress on monday they gonna get it friday, if you got it today than maybe monday next week

I started at #58 for the 64GB Black 4s.  And now I'm down to 37 with an OPEN status.

Re: iPhone 4S on reservation

I just spoke to the store where I am directing my 4S tomorrow, and the guy there told me that 99% of the stock they are receiving is earmarked for the reservation system. I wondered what was keeping them from selling these reserved devices on the open market - he said they don't get paid unless the phone are specifically sold to the reserver. He expected to have the first shipment for his opening tomorrow, with a second shipment in 1-2 weeks.

 

I see this as good news. I suspect that even though my status is still showing as "open", there will be a phone there for me. Perhaps they are having a hard time reconciling the store batches with individual reservations, or they simply want to mobilize their stock before updating status messages. If you think about it, it would be better to underpromise at this point rather than set anyone up for disappointment (which wouldn't be very hard!)

 

About my order:

Model: black 16 GB

Initial spot last Friday morning: 315

Now: 147 (Open)

Location: Moncton, NB

 

Good luck!

Re: iPhone 4S on reservation

Just called my store here in Scarborough, ontario & they said that they have gotten the shipments of iPhones 4S but none of them are the ones that are supposed to be for the reservation people. ( i am one of them) So this is really ticking me off.

Re: iPhone 4S on reservation

Remember, the official tagline is that it could "take up to 4 days". I'm in the same boat as you---my reservation has been "in progress" since last Sunday. In progress means that the shipment process has begun. Therefore, if you do the math, 4 (business) days from last Sunday is this Friday. I'm still holding out for mine for tomorrow here in Ottawa! 🙂

Re: iPhone 4S on reservation

Honestly i hope you are right. But if it was shipped out would it not say SHIPPED? Also the store i reserved it too said then ONLY received iPhone's for upgrades & new activations. None of them are for people that reserved it. If i have not heard anything till tonight ill just camp it outside the store.

 

Well i am buying the phone & since i am going to Greece i already have a phone to use up there. I switch phones when i get up there. My contract is ending on Oct 26th so that is why i am doing it this way. I am leaving the sim down here & once i get up to Greece i am going to activate a new line with vodaphone with another phone my cousin has that i can use on that network.
