Re: iPhone 4S delivery dates

Would it be just faster to buy unlocked from the local Apple store, say around 5-6th of Nov? Or the fanboys would make sure that one doesn't get it?

Re: iPhone 4S delivery dates

in that case would rather cancel the pre-order and grab one from retail store between 31-2 considering the initial rush would settle down in a day or 2.. at least would be better then to keep expecting the delivery

When I tried to cancel the pre-order of the iPhone 4 8GB, they told me I had to wait until I receive the phone then either refuse delivery or send it back unopened.

Awesome customer service is awesome.

well that would be because the order status would be preparing for shipping(stage 3). you cant cancel in that phase. there are 4 stages for online order. you can modify/cancel only before stage 3

"We confirm that your Orange item has been sent to you today"

Usually they sell out on launch day and won't get any new ones for 10-14 days after that.

I just know that last year, ordering from Apple online was the next best thing to camping in front of an Apple Store. Today, however, it looks as though Apple is treating direct orders as 2nd class orders.

I personally couldn't care less as my wife has an iPhone 4 and having to wait 10 days isn't really a problem.

As long as I get the one I ordered before Christmas (ordered on Oct 22nd), I should be ok. It is my wife's Christmas present

Re: iPhone 4S delivery dates

I ordered my iPhone 4s last friday, 5 minutes after receiving the pre-order EMail from Swisscom. Theoretically, I would expect to see a yellow slip from the Post Office* in my post box this afternoon stating that a small package from Swisscom is available for me to collect.

(*unless DHL deliver it, who are as dumb as a bag of hammers)

That would be bloody wonderful indeed, but I have a suspicious feeling there is a fractionally minimal chance of me having a Shiny iPhone 4S in my hands tonight...

Swisscom's order status page (as of today) still says "In Work" with a delivery date between 25.10.2011 (25!) and 01.11.2011

There are people on t'internet comparing their OSA order numbers from Swisscom !

Well, we shall see.. I have a large suspicion (worst case) that I could be waiting for weeks..

Cheers,
Chris

Re: iPhone 4S delivery dates

Went to the orange shop yesterday who said they won't have enough iPhones today to cover in shop pre-orders so I have no chance.

Bloody farce
