Finally got through to a T-Mobile rep on the phone and ordered the iPhone 4S. He set my expectations for delivery to 6-8 weeks.
The iPhone 4S pre-order madness is still going on world-wide. I just got finally through to the German Telekom here in Germany. I ordered two new iPhone 4S, but the rep said that I should be prepared to wait 6-8 weeks until delivery. I would then still be one of the first to own the iPhone 4S in Germany. So what does this mean? He said that there have been tons of pre-orders, but it also seems that Apple did not really supply a ton of iPhone 4S inventory for launch.
You might remember that German Telekom has offered a reservation opportunity for the new iPhone already back in September. It sounded nice at the time. Telekom promised that I would have to not worry about getting the new iPhone at launch. Well the reservation system did not work. The Telekom rep told me that there have been software issues and I can throw away the card.
So we look at the same launch mess as there was for the iPhone 4.
What did your carrier rep tell you about your iPhone 4S delivery date? Post it your expected delivery date below in the comments.
Looks like the Telekom was way to pessimistica about the iPhone 4S delivery dates. I got one on launch day and the second iPhone 4S i ordered arrived on Saturday.
