    Hi Eileen, yes it's an app with a widget.

    The way my order is going, you could get yours before I get mine.

    You ordered the 64GB model if I'm not mistaking? It is my understanding that this is the more popular model that has seen the highest amount of orders on all the carriers. From what I have read those who ordered the 64GB model of the 6/6+ on Verizon are also seeing the longer ship time as well. Verizon is starting to catch up though, so hopefully AT&T 64GB 6's will start to ship out sooner as well.

    With Apple still showing 7-10 day wait times (and free shipping probably 2 day). I would switch. It seems it is not Apples delay but the proportion of phones allotted to ATT versus all carriers.

    But that just my opinion and what I would do.

    Yes it is 64 Eileen, ironically when I ordered it I was undecided between the sg and silver and AT&T told me that the sg had a 21-35 days lead time and the silver 7-14. That made decision making easy. Now it turns out that is not the case and the silver 64 is the problem.
    In a way Apple is to blame, first they supply their direct customers which is understandable but then they should supply and portion based on some logical criteria.

    If TMobile and Sprint iPhone 6 has less demand then supply AT&T and Verizon before them.

    Anyway, whether or not I cancel, depends on what the website says after tomorrow. If it changes to back ordered then I am canceling right away and probably not re ordering until I can walk into AT&T and get one.

    If the shipping window does not change, then I am willing to wait a week past it since there hasn't been anyone with a 13-22 date that got a shipping notice yet.

    If the shipping window is moved out, then it will depend on how far out it gets moved to. Apple has 7-10 business and with shipping that could easily be 2 weeks, AT&T may give me an earlier shipping window. Of course do I really want to believe that AT&T will send it out in that window, probably not.

    Decision made:

    Att just moved my ship date out to 11/1-11/14, I have cancelled my order and my eligibility has been reset.

    My case's 14 day return ended today, I called Apple to find out if returning tomorrow would be okay. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I have 14 more days from the day I initiate the return, so I will be okay.

    She also credited my cc for the shipping charges due to my reason for returning the case (no phone).

    At least that worked out.

    Charlyee,

    As much as I hate to say it, I think you made the right decision. You can always reorder the iPhone 6 that you want through Apple and receive it quicker than you would have with AT&T. Also, like you said you can always get it by walking into an AT&T store when they have them in stock. My local AT&T corp. store has been getting a few of the iPhone 6's in almost weekly. Another option if you have an Apple Store near you would be to keep checking the Apple Store App for the In-store pickup option. I think you have a better shot of picking up an iPhone 6 than the 6 Plus. I only found one this way and it was Space Gray and 64GB only for AT&T which is something that I did not want.

    Unfortunately ATT is not just competing with Verizon or T-Mobile. But China, India too. And the rest of the world.

    Apple direct is your best bet. Assuming you still want one. I only bought from ATT once and I was forced too.

    Good luck, from what I have read Verizon is better with estimated shipping dates than AT&T.
    I will probably eventually get one perhaps early next year. I am hoping by that time I could just walk into a store, AT&T or Apple and get one.

    Just went through the motions of ordering through Apple. Their website says available to ship in 7-10 days business days, which would 10/31-11/5. However the estimated delivery with expedited shipping is 11/6-11/10, later with the free standard shipping.

    So actually not that much improvement over AT&T just from a delivery perspective. So for a couple months or so, the 5s it is.

    Charlyee,

    Have you checked the App Store App for availability to order with In-Store Pick-Up? From what I hear, both Tuesday and Thursday around 6AM is a good time to possibly score the 6 model. If not, the iPhone 5S that you have is still an awesome device and not that much different than the 6, even though some will swear that it is, lol.

    Checked my ICONIC status again, and my 6 Plus is still processing. At least my ship by date of 10/31 hasn't changed yet.

    My Verizon Silver 128GB 6 Plus shipped today! One week ahead of schedule. Tracking info states that it will be here on or before 10/27. :)

    • Yay!
    Congratulations Eileen! :)

    This seems to be the week for 128s, both 6 and 6 plus on all providers, the 64 is still not being shipped.

    Thanks Charlyee. With as popular as the 64GB option is this year, I think Apple should have anticipated that when they removed the 32GB option and made the 64GB the same price point, they were going to have more orders for this model. Hopefully the stores will be getting more of the 64GB models in soon.
    I found this site posted on MR that a lot of people are having luck with for Live iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Availability Monitoring, that might help you get a 64GB model sooner. http://www.iStockNow.com
    I registered when I first found out about them but didn't follow up with it since I ended up just ordering with Verizon.

    Well, as it turns out I couldn't have my 6 Plus held at the FexEx center near me as Verizon doesn't allow you to change the location until after one delivery attempt has been made. So I am taking a Vacation day Monday to wait for it and not have to wait one more day.

    Hmm, I found this post by Charlyee in another part of the forum tonight and couldn't help but notice that something was different in her signature. I highlighted it in Red. :D

    Congrats Charlyee! Enjoy your new 6 :)

    Lol Eileen good catch. :D

    Our nearest Apple Store had 2 silver 16 and one space grey 128, I decided to go for the 128 instead of waiting another 2-3 weeks.

    Thanks for the congrats, I am liking it so far.

    So quiet, Charlyee, yet so prolific when you didn't have it. That Apple Store is 50 miles away? Very lucky and 128 too.

    Well Congratulations!!! Open a bottle of Veuve Cliquot.

    I love the Space Grey. But which case, prey tell.

    Yes the Apple Store is 50 miles away and actually iStockNow showed availability for Verizon and Sprint only. Since I haven't seen in store availability since launch, I decided to have a friend of mine who works almost right across the street from the store, go and check. He somehow put a hold on the att unit until closing today.

    My eligibility reset instantly after I canceled my order (standing in the store).

    About the case, I will give you one guess - that's all you will need. :)

    It's getting near Midnight here, getting late to guess. Perhaps tomorrow's Blue sky's will wake me up early. Might be time for fall Apple picking.

    PS. Turned on iCloud Drive today got my MacBook Pro on Yosemite

    Well, I'm still in the waiting room for the weekend. My iPhone 6 Plus is very close to me now though, as I see from the tracking that it has finally arrived in Philly.

    One more day and I'm out of the waiting room! Tomorrow my 6 Plus will be out for delivery. I'm hoping FedEx comes early since Monday is my gym day.

    I ordered a silver 6 64 gb from the local corporate store on 9/23. I got the email confirmation with shipping dates 10/13 - 10/22 within 15 mins and another email verifying those shipping dates on 9/29.
