Thread for iPhone 7+ preorders PAST 9/9 and estimated shipping/delivery dates AFTER 9/28

So, the other threads are nice to see how things are progressing for those who preordered on the first day (9/9). And its cool to see those people who are already getting their phones. Smiley Happy  But I feel like the rest of the us "latey late" orderers are getting lost in the discussions because we have a bit more of a wait. So, I wanted to create a discussion for the rest of us so that once the ball gets rolling for us, we can kind of see how things go in terms of changed dates hopefully for the better and maybe earlier shipping dates.

So, if anyone else is interested this space can be for people who preordered 7 pluses AFTER the first day and who are still in the processing stage and have delivery/shipping dates PAST the 9/28 (which seems to be the latest date for 9/9 orders) date. Anyone not ordering the plus but just the 7 is also welcome to post here, but I just know that the debacle with pluses seems to be a bit more a concern for some people so I wanted to have a space for people to share here. But anyone is welcome to post.

So here just share:

Phone(s) Ordered:

Date Ordered:

Current Status:

Expected Ship date:

Optional: And also if you've heard of anyone having luck getting any of the plus models WITHOUT preorder in store recently (whether at Verizon or Apple) which I know is not yet being the case.

Thanks guys! Smiley Happy Smiley Happy

My preorder:

Phone(s) Ordered: 7+ matte/Apple black 256

Date Ordered: 9/12

Current Status: Processing

Expected Ship date: 10/5

No I personally haven't heard of anyone getting a plus in store at either place. Tried myself yesterday at Verizon (knowing I wouldn't but juuuust in case).

Verizon is being kinda weird about my order...

Order date: 9/18, EDD: 11/16

Phones: iPhone 7+ 128GB RG, iPhone 7 32 GB Silver, iPhone 7 128GB Black

CC charged on 10/18, but I received an email confirmation saying only the black 7 was shipped. Today(10/19), I get another email with another tracking number with the other two phones. Why didn't they just ship together? Now I have packages coming in Thursday and Friday, 😕 Well on the bright side I'm getting my phones. Good Luck to everyone else with their phones!

My credit card was charged last night so I called verizon and they confirmed that it's been shipped. Should arrive by this Friday!

Over a month early it seems!

So apparently the MB are the only ones shipping out Early? Meaning the JB ones are still the ones having the longest wait or am I wrong? Since I ordered 9/26 with a ship date of 11/30. I just wanna bawl my eyes out cause I want mine soooo bad Smiley Sad anyone have any good news for me?

Aside from Apple's typical artificially created "out of stock" syndrome.  Don't worry.  You aren't missing anything and in fact, most likely saving yourself some headache's while they sort out some problems with the iPhone 7's.  I ordered my 7 Plus in Matte Black on the 09/04 where it arrived (2 day shipping) on 10/04.

Most of us immediately started noticing dropped calls.  Immediate call failures.  Low to no LTE signal.  Along with GPS related issues and band-aid work arounds.  Spelling/Grammar also seems to be WAY off in iOS 10 across all iPhone's.

If you look around the iPhone forums on Verizon, you'll see a WHOLE lotta people having problems so hopefully, you will at least have Voice/Data LTE connectivity while you wait for Apple and/or Verizon to sort out the problems which (according to them only) they "DON'T" have.   And of course, actually make and ship the phones that aren't in as high demand as they like the public to think.  🙂

How did you order it on 9/4? Did preorders begin on 9/9?

I've had the 7+ 256GB Matte Black for over a week now, traveling from eastern North Dakota through Minnesota and I have not had an issue with dropped calls, signal issues, etc. I've been an apple user since the iPhone 3G, and this is by far the best one yet.

Sorry.  I misspoke.  So many orders, so little time.  Lol.  I've been from the Note 7 (twice) to the iPhone and now waiting on the Pixel XL.  All in search of the best phone.

There are well documented and known signal issues with some (seems like more than less) iPhone 7 users on Verizon.  In fact, if you just look the multiple threads on this Community for Apple, you'll see what I'm referring to.  Also, many 5 - 6s iPhone users are also having major issues with the Mail app working properly.  I work in an Apple/Mac office of 300 plus users where over half are reporting the issues described above.

Personally, this iPhone is the least impressive of any I've had since the iPhone 3.  It's fast as usual but to me, more was lost than gained.  That's just my personal experience being disappointed with no new hardware feature changes aside from removing things and a realization of just how disconnected I've been with all application and OS integration.  To put it in perspective.  I'm a little tired of having "Grey" and "Blue" as theme options.  Lol.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Gotcha, yeah I've heard of some issues with the connectivity but have yet to experience anything. I guess I don't know how you can find better than the iPhone (personal preference). I switched from Apple to the Galaxy S7 Edge when it came out in March, and it was terrible. I turned it on last night to wipe it, and the icons are still burned into the screen. It almost looks like when you leave your old plasma TV on pause for a couple hours, and it retains that image. It's only six months old, but acts like three years.

My girlfriend swears by Samsung, so we tend to butt heads on this topic quite a bit. One day I will get her to switch to the good side, Haha. Good Luck phone hunting!!

I agree. I have had all of the iphones and my 7 Plus is the best model I've had. The battery life is amazing, it's fast, seamless, and i have not had any connectivity issues.
