    Idk if it was planned, but I do hope the early arrivals continue, because we've all see how prepared AT&T is for this thing.




    (in case you were wondering I'm refering to their crazy slow servers on preorder day)

    I just hope with this Apple ships a iPhone 4 to my house on accident =D

    Whoever got those are pretty lucky.

    I just don't see how they could let this slide. I'm saying planned.

    I bet it was planned.

    But on the other hand, there's thousands of phones to keep track of.
    I can't see every device being delivered at the exact date announced.

    I say its not planned. I mean it just brings many more questions, like

    Who gets it early?
    Who waits?
    Why them?
    Why not me?

    I say its just a slip, like the millions of products and games that are released early, by accident.

    Apple is not a conspiracy, its a company, or a cult.. either way, it's not planned.

    I bet that today's deliveries might have been a mistake on FedEx's part, and tomorrow's deliveries are planned relief for the activation servers on 6/24. I feel like the number of people getting phones today was low enough that it could just be a few accidents among the MASSIVE number of preorders (over 600,000). It could also be that they wanted to test the activation servers today, to make sure that they work correctly before the insane number of activation requests come tomorrow and Thursday especially.

    EDIT: Anyone who got a phone today, what does your tracking say? Did it update? Was the original expected delivery 6/23 or 6/24?
