    Got another email this morning from AT&T with information about my new phone. But it was a Nokia 6085 which is my daughter's old phone. Ahhhhh!


    But then I checked my account and both phones have tracking numbers with this notation:

    NDA SAVER DEL CONF

    Which to me breaks down as Next Day Air Saver, Delivery Confirmation.

    In other words a signature. Well, as much as I would like to have it tomorrow, my "late" UPS guy runs between 3-4pm and I have to leave to take my daughter to her swim meet by 3.

    Hopefully they will put it on the "early" run even though it is "SAVER".

    And I have had no luck updating her Touch with the new software. I swear one of these days I am going to buy a cheap MAC just to do iTunes. The Windows versions just suck.

    Might want to wait on that. I'm hearing some tall tales about the iOS 4 making 'older' devices sluggish and consume battery power, etc.

    My iPhone 4's are also coming UPS NDA Super Saver DEL CONF too.
    Says they are in Memphis. (I get next day service from Memphis even if it's shipped ground).

    I can't believe that it is finally .... wait....wait....wait......
    It hasn't delivered yet so I won't give AT&T any accolades just yet.

    I ordered from AT&T, and like Herdfan I have the "NDA SAVER DEL CONF ", so it seems I'm going to have to hunt down my phones Thursday evening at the UPS warehouse along with hundreds of other locals who were not home to sign for their delivery.

    My order is still listed as "in progress..." so I'm probably out of the first wave.

    For all of those who won't be around to sign for the delivery, you may want to pre-sign.

    Well, my phone just left Memphis. If it reaches San Antonio tonight I have a good chance of getting it tomorrow. Crossing my fingers. :)

    Just calculated time in transit but don't know which carrier they're using for you

    - FedEx says you should get it tomorrow unless it went FedEx 2Day which would put delivery on Thursday.

    - UPS says you should get it tomorrow. (next day air saver)

    I am reading this too Chris. Unfortunately my tracking number says "not today, but thanks for playing".

    This is probably a good decision by AT&T/Apple. Stagger the releases to lessen the strain on the authorization servers. Even if mine comes before I have to leave tomorrow afternoon, I may wait until I get home (after 10pm) to try and activate it.

    It is also now being reported that AT&T will not have walk-in sales until June 29th. However, people on the forums are saying that their local AT&T stores have not heard of the announcement yet & are saying they will have walk-ins available. Going to be an interesting day Thursday.

    Engadget has their review up... a bit too much drool if you ask me but it shows that this is clearly an excellent device.

    (sorry I can't post link)

    Another glowing review imo but they did have one sobering reminder...
    This is AT&T we are talking about

    Ya, I don't like this drool/fanboy perspective of reviewing. Anandtech's review of iOS4 for example was much more unbias and took a fair look at the new OS. I hope they do an iPhone 4 review as well.

    Engadget rips everything else to hell it seems when they review, they tend to give Apple products a lot of slack and only briefly mention negatives.

    (I edited this post to clarify what I meant a bit better)

    That's a plus for me. I don't want that Ego driven Verizon crap or pint size 3G coverage T-Mobile has thank you. AT&T works great where I am :)

    I thought you guys were all buddy buddy with Fedex now?

    As far as walk in sales go, my local ATT store guy promised me at lunch today, the 22nd, that they would have some unallocated phones Thursday. This was minutes before the info hit the web that says otherwise, so I imagine he had told a ton of people about it and they will be lining up on Thursday somewhere around 4:00-5:00 AM. Oops! I wonder if they will post a sign or have someone there. Also, why open at 7:00 now for pickups of preorders?

    This launch has been botched up good. All the places I checked, Best Buy, Rat Shack, Wal Mart ATT, none have phones Thursday. According to the ATT rep who was at the Morrisville, NC Wal Mart, a couple of miles from 100,000 people in Research Triangle Park, many of which would love an iPhone 4 will have no iPhone4s, but another a few miles away will have ONE phone in stock so I guess its all good. ;)
