    Just checked on mine again ... it was picked up in Ft. Worth, Texas, and is still scheduled for a 23rd delivery date. (Mine was pre-ordered through my local bricks-and-mortar AT&T store.)



    Here's hoping the schedule doesn't slip at all!

    Nope, because most likely AT&T is not shipping via FedEx.

    From the start, all indications pointed to delivery on the 23rd. The original Apple confirmation email, the FedEx tracking page, and now the Apple delivery alert email all say it'll be delivered on the 23rd.



    And I didn't even order the thing until nearly 7pm PST on the 15th. I did, however, try about 80 times on 5 different sittings: 1am, 4am, 7am, 10am, and 6pm, before finally breaking through.



    Why did I work so hard to pre-order with shipping? Because I stood in line for 6 hours two years ago on day 1 for the iPhone 3G. Been there, done that, got the donuts & bottled water. Proved my devotion. Done with standing in line for iPhones.

    I hear that SockRolid! My exact experience as well. Hours and hours in line 2 years ago. This year sat in the comfort of my home eventually getting through for the pre-order!

    I will say, I was presently surprised how well Apple's servers kept up with iOS 4 downloads and app store update requests yesterday. ATT could learn a thing or two.



    They could also be arriving early to steal a bit of thunder from the Verizon Droid X reveal.

    Just got my iphone 4g a couple minutes ago! It's activated and ready to go. Wish my case and screen protector were here too, but I was expecting my phone to come on Thursday. Good luck to everyone else in getting their new toy soon!

    I preorder from an AT&T store and their website shows the iPhone has been shipped and gave me a Fed Ex tracking number, although according to Fed Ex the order hasn't been processed. I am wondering if AT&T has already received the phones (here in the U.S.) and is waiting a day or two to release them. I was told my delivery date was June 24 or 25.

    Incorrect. AT&T orders also go via Fedex.

    That doesn't seem to be the case. My tracking number was issued last weekend and is now showing the phone in Ft. Worth. It looks as though it was tracked right from the supplier - just like ones ordered from Apple. I won't know for sure until it arrives tomorrow.

    Did your FedEx tracking information show the orination in Shenzen, China or Lantau, Hong Kong? I ordered the iPad on Apple's website last month and tracked it from China through Alaska (where it cleared customs) and onto Ontario, California. I am wondering if anyone who purchased through an AT&T knows where the shipment originated.



    Bottom line: I'm curious if AT&T has a centralized inventory in the U.S. from where all the pre-ordered phones will ship.

    They may also ship via FedEx, but they also ship via UPS. My order is coming via UPS.

    Bingo. I don't think they are overly concerned. Nor should they be, from what I have seen of Android. It's nice but not overly compelling to me.
