Iphone 5 (16 GB WHITE) Backorder status?

Iphone 5 (16 GB WHITE) Backorder status?

I pre-ordered my iPhone 5 16 gb White on 9/16. When I try to track my order on Sprint it has said since the 16th that my order is on backorder status. Anyone else have this? I then contacted customer service & they said it is really not on backorder it just says that b/c it is a pre-order. Also has anyone else gotten shipping info if they ordered on the 16th??

Does it say it is on backorder?

Journeyman

Sooooo Annoyed, all my friends who didn't pre-order the phone was able to get it from the STORE!!! Why pre-order!!?? I placed my order on the 15th, 16G white... and no shipping yet.... <cry> #impatience!

Journeyman

Sprint has no clue they keep on saying the same thing in every thread. They screwed so many of us with a promise they broke purposely. The already charge you for a phone they do not have to send.

Journeyman

putting the font in BOLD does not help. people are just frustrated! what was the point in pre-ordering if other people can walk up to the store and pick it up.

Journeyman

Does Anyone elses say backorder status? or just me!

Journeyman

Update: I purchased my iphone early morning on the 15th, 16G white.. got my tracking number last night, and will get it today!!!! 😃 <can't wait>
