    did anyone get their phone earlier than anticipated? what was the actual time between ordering and delivery?

    doing some research for a friend...

    I'm interested in this as well.

    The verizon rep said that some customers were getting theirs' early. True?

    Mine shipped on the exact date that I was told when I ordered it (June 1st).

    Yes, I had an expected date of the 11th and mine showed up yesterday... I was very happy it did. I was also surprised that it shipped with a 2gb card as when i ordered mine it was not listed as shipping with one.

    As for me, I'm still waiting, but the word is that many customers are getting their phones earlier than expected. HOWEVER, the gap has shrunk again. Last week, members of the 5/15 group received their phone a week earlier than anticipated. Right now, it seems the schedule has slowed down and phones are arriving on time or 1-2 days earlier. There are many variables on the arrival of the phone.

    They are quoting 21 says to SHIP. I think most people are shipping to arrive BEFORE 21 days. I am in the 5/28 group, so I am hoping mine will arrive a few days before the 6/18 ship date.

    Ordered mine today, said the delivery will be the 30th. Some of my friends who order under business accounts say they get theirs in a week or two. Sucks to be us!

    I'm glad to hear they are early, instead of late.

    Hopefully HTC is starting to get the production up, but I doubt it. AMOLED still isn't up to being produced at the rate we need.

    Mine said shipping by June 7th when I ordered it and it arrived on Fri June 4th. I'd say they are accurate dates. Hope for early (maybe a couple days) but expect it that day. They don't seem to be shipping later than the date they give you. If they give you a date, you will have it within 24 hours of that date.

    So are you notified somehow when it gets shipped or does it just show up?

    You would think at some point they will catch up with production and everyone will start getting their phones real quick. I'm surprised it's taking them this long.

    I agree. The Incredible has been out for a while now...you would think they would be catching up at this point. Ordered mine 6/1, delivery date is set for 6/24...I can't wait. These have been the longest days!

    I ordered my first one on 5/24 and I was told it would ship on 6/13 but I received it on 6/1. But I had a camera and text issue with that one, so I am waiting on a replacement that I was supposed to have 2 days ago. Called customer service and they have no idea. This is starting to turn into a pain in the butt. I loved the phone and now that I had to go back to my Storm 1....the wait is killing me!!

    It appears as though that a majority of people (90% or so) are receiving their phones anywhere from 1 to 4 days before the date they were quoted. Not a surprise, as the dates they are handing out are 'SHIP BY' dates, meaning your phone should be out for delivery by that date.

    As for production catch-up, I assume the phone will start going out quicker at some point. We may see ship dates start to shrink more in the next couple weeks (people getting their phones much sooner than expected). But, since the issue lies in Samsung not being able to produce the AMOLED screens fast enough, its doubtful that they would beef up production this late in the game. I assume the issue initially stemmed from the popularity of the phone taking VZW by surprise, and they probably didn't pre-order a large enough count to keep up with demand. So, it turned into this "make 'em, ship 'em" production line.

    Ordered on 5/14 online. Website said it would ship by 6/1, CSR said by the 3rd. It shipped on the 27th FedEx 2nd day but due to the Holiday I didn't get it till the 1st. But I got it the day they said it would ship by so it was about what I was told.

    So it seems like its less than 3 weeks turnaround now...which gives me mine around the 22nd instead of the 30th. Hopefully...
