As we reported earlier those people who’d ordered their iPhone 3G S’s from the Apple web site received the news today that their new phones were on their way from China and many showed a delivery date of 6/17, a full two days early than Apple’s earlier announced release date.
As first reported by TechCrunch.com it seems this early delivery was only a dream. A check of my tracking number tonight shows my phone making good travel time (it’s now in Anchorage Alaska) but the delivery date field, which previously did show 6/17, is mysteriously gone from the UPS tracking page.
Did Apple ask UPS to remove it? Perhaps they’ve asked UPS to hold all the phones to insure they all get delivered on 6/19?
