So, I called tonight (12 June) to find out what the heck was going on, and I was told that the e-mail that I received was a mistake and that the real delivery date is 22 June. What gives!?iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.7)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 12, 2009 7:30 PM (in response to Randy Pozzi)if you pre-order at an att corp store you will not have to stand in line. The phone will be shipped to the att store in your name for pickup on friday. You have 7 days to pick it up. They are even opening at 7am for 2 hours just to service people who have pre-ordered
Currently Being ModeratedJun 12, 2009 7:46 PM (in response to unax)Gee, I dunno. Mine is coming to my home address. You bought it on line?DP2.3 G5 PM 10.4.11,1.9 G5 iMac, MDD Dual 1.25 G4,2.1 MacBook,12" 1.5G Powerbook, Mac OS X (10.5.5), 3G 20Gb iPod, White 16Gb 3G iPhone

Currently Being ModeratedJun 12, 2009 10:10 PM (in response to W9FIF)I also have one coming June 19. However, I have a problem. When I ordered from apple I forgot to say I want unlimited texting. I checked the order at apple and it says no texting. How do I change this? Do I cancel my order and order a new one with unlimited texting, or call att June 19 after I have activated the phone?Macbook Air, Mac OS X (10.5.7)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 12, 2009 10:43 PM (in response to W9FIF)yes i ordered it from the apple online store... then i spoke with an apple rep and they said it will be at my house on the 19... and as far as the text thing you can just go to the att website after you get it on the 19 and go into your account and add the unlimited text package or you can call or visit the store
Currently Being ModeratedJun 13, 2009 7:02 PM (in response to coreyh18)Yeah, AT&T/Cingular retired all of its "home" plans years ago, which were much cheaper but didn't include roaming outside the home area. Now all of their plans are Nationwide ones, and they are therefore more expensive. You're likely on an old home type plan. I'd hang on to it!
I figure that there is some confusion about the pre-order delivery date at the call center that I reached. I still expect to see it on 19 June.iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.7)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 14, 2009 8:30 AM (in response to unax)ok i ordered my iPhone 3GS for delivery on saturday how long does it take to get the confirmation email? i have the printed receipt and it says "Ships: Delivers by June 19th" is that the confirmation? and i also have a web order number and everything.
will they send a separate email saying its shipped and stuff?iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.1)
