I ordered a Silver iPhone 6 plus 64GB on 9/19 with a ship date of 10/24 it's now 10/27 and nothing. I'm more than aggravated at this point. I've received no update from Verizon as to what's going on. I talked to a CSR the middle of Oct. and he told me it would ship out well before 10/24.
I would call customer service and fours out what's going on with your phone. I heard that the shipment that's supposed to go out on 10/24 was delayed until November. Dial *611, then press 3 for technical support, then press 2. If it asks you to give a verbal response as to what you need assistance with say customer representative. Then just keep pressin 0 til it transfers you to a live person
So I ordered mine (same model as you) on 9/21 with a ship date of 10/31. I talked to someone at Verizon yesterday and she said Verizon was suppose to get a huge shipment to fulfill orders on 10/24 and yeah they didn't get it. She said most dates have been pushed into November. Mine hasn't changed yet, but she said it was not likely I would receive my phone until sometime in November, but anything is possible.
Verizon should keep people updated a little better, but honestly I don't think its their fault. Apple screwed this up for everyone by not producing enough phones. I think Verizon is hopeful these orders will come into them so they can get them out to us, but again this is Apple's fault.
I called customer support and they said the new ship date is 10/31 or 11/3. They said they sent out an email on 10/24 which I never received. Apparently they are waiting on a shipment from Apple to fulfill the outstanding orders. If it doesn't ship out on the new dates given. Definitely not getting my hopes up.
Same problem here - ordered my 6 on 10/4 with an expected ship date of 10/24. When that passed I called, and they said they were supposed to ship "this week" - my order status still showing an expected ship date of 10/24.
Someone posted earlier that it is probably Apple's fault - but then again, my boss ordered 2 6's from AT&T early last week and they were delivered on Friday. Go figure!
I know delays can happen - just keep us posted!
That would be correct, it appears Space Gray was a large majority of back orders to recently arrive, I am guessing Silver then Gold are next. From there I imagine it will just be regular mixed batches. There was a lot of demand for certain color/GB options, causing things to pile up in manufacturing. Hopefully you see your phone soon! Good Luck!
Very upset that the ship date for my 6 Plus has gone from 10/31 to 11/3. I realize Apple as the manufacturer has to deal with the overwhelming demand versus supply, but the communication (or more accurately lack of) from Verizon is extremely upsetting. I ordered through Verizon to get the $200 gift card, and now wish I ordered directly through Apple. very tempting to just cut my losses and go to another carrier, who are offering similar if not better incentives to trade in older iPhones.
