Apparently the preorders exceeded apple's stock of iphones after the first day or so. It really ***** because I'm still waiting for my phone to ship when i preordered it the day after preorders were available. Waiting in line for hours seemed to be much better than waiting weeks for the phone to ship.
It's not a good thing that we're on the same boat by any means, but i'm relieved that i'm not the only one having this issue. I agree with you completely; it would've been so much better just to stand in line on the 21st. It's so silly to me that preorders aren't here yet.
I'm still waiting for that stupid shipment notification email.
