German customers already receiving iPhone 4S orders

Looks like some over-eager German couriers suffering from premature delivery-fication have gotten iPhone 4S orders out way ahead of Apple's official Friday drop date. Not that the customers seem to mind. Indeed, they're taking to the internet to share an advanced look at their hot new devices.

Apple, no doubt, is likely firmly reminding their courier partners to think about baseball, or taxes, or anything that will get them to keep it in their trucks until Friday.

I'm sure that these customers won't have any complaints, even if Apple does!

Adam Dutson says:

So jealous! I got my order confirmation from AT&T at 5:55 AM EST on October 7th and they have already billed me. But I have no idea if I am getting it on Friday or not. The last time they updated my order was on the 7th.

Why is it rounded at the bottom? That is not a real 4s.

Lars says:

Optical illusion. The phone is still partially sitting in the box tray.


The top of the phone is showing and its round. Take it out of the box

I'm cancelling my preorder since it's says that the iPhone is out of stock & they'll let me know when it comes back in. They need to reverse the charges that they said they wouldn't charge until it shipped. I'll take my chances Friday morning at my local ATT store. Hopefully they will have 1.

So what Firmware version are they coming with?

Steve Wright says:

My order status from Rogers is still "open". I'm #107 now, up from #275 when I first reserved my phone. I'm still waiting for a change in the status or an email.
