Ordered both a charcoal grey and a shimmery white one on 3/28. They were both delivered on 4/9.

What's weird is that the grey one shipped from Fort Worth and the white one from Memphis. I received shipping notifications for both on Monday 4/7 and the white one just hung out in Memphis till 4/8 while it waited for the grey one to arrive in Memphis as well. Then they both arrived on my front porch the next day at noon.

My old phone told me they were delivered so I did a surgical strike running home from work at lunch to scoop them up and get them to a secure location.

Beautiful phones, both of them.

For whatever reason, I couldn't preorder on AT&T's site (Premier). It said my plan was not compatible with that phone. Must've been a bug on the site, for kicks I tried adding serveral different phones (including basic phones) to my shopping cart and received the same message.

So I ended up preordering it at Best Buy, and I'm going to pick it up today. It comes with a $10 gift card, so I guess I can't complain too much about not getting the phone a few days early.
