    my preorder from apple also says "prepared for shipment"

    but i have a feeling that this status change is place in to prevent people from changing the shipping address, since you were only suppose to ship to your att billing address, and some people have been able to change the delivery address when apple orders are "in process"

    This whole iPhone unveil and release has been a huge mess. The moral of the story is: There is no way to prepare for a stampede!!

    @zoso10: Very true. Ever since the Gizmodo incident, all of this was a train-wreck waiting to happen.

    Why would you order from Apple? They open the phone and activate it before you even get it. Not sure about you but I want mine sealed...that's why I ordered from AT&T.
    Lol.....no they don't. iPhones come pre-activated and sealed. It's ridiculous for you to think they can create a phone yet not activate it before boxing, seriously, do some thinking.

    Both of mine are prepared....yay!!!

    **EDIT**

    Ordered both from apple about 6:30pm on the 15th

    Also can anyone answer the question in my signature! I'm new to the mac world of computing and will never go back...but was just amazed at the speed difference for the internet! Ive been with the iphone from day one but was always scared to goto mac because of the operating differences...what a wast of years for not changing! I'm also boot-camped just so i didn't have drop windows all together!

    I had to call them since I had a Attention on my order status and got a e-mail from AT&T with a phone number to call. The ran a new credit card since they were having problems with the other. Then the guy said the new one went through. I was told it would still ship on the 24th since I ordered 6:45 AM on the 15th.

    If you look at AT&Ts order status explanations there is nothing in between In Progress to Shipped or Partially Shipped so AT&T orders won't see a change to shipping day.

    Everyone including me that are hopefully getting there iphones on the 24th should realize we are going to have the same problem that happened on the 15th. The hundreds of thousands getting there iphones at the same time trying to activate there iphones at the same time. Most of us will be so happy to get our new phones on the 25th but are not going to get them activated. It happens every launch day for the iphone. That will be another wasted day for me trying over and over again like on the 15th.

    So how do you think this works? The phones are built and preloaded at Foxconn China and then shipped to warehouses here early this week, then they are packed and shipped to us? Or do you think code updates have to be done in the US?

    My order status looks exactly like yours except that I have all 0's in the backordered column, is that a good thing or bad thing?

    6/15/10 is my date of purchase as well
    Anything other than a zero in the backordered column can't be a good thing. I'm guessing folks with ones in that column are those who got orders in too late for delivery on the 24th. A friend of mine who ordered through ATT at around noon (EST) on the 15th has a "zeroed" backorder column as well.

    Man this sucks *****... I ordered my phone @ 6:00 am on the 15th and it reads the 16th on my order...!
    F this, this is why AT&T has such a bad rap!!! If my iPhone does not show up on the 24th, it's going on eBay and I'm headed back to Tmobile...!
    You and I are in the same boat my friend. I ordered mine at 10am (Mountain Time US) on the 15th from AT&T Premier site (but like all of us was trying to order from 6am on). Mine says order on 16th.

    And to top that off, I have a "1" in the Backordered column. If that really means backordered, who knows when I will see it. That will make me one pissed off puppy (because of the hugely horrible order debacle)!
