Happy 4th I want to say first off to everyone. Anyway I logged into my Apple account on the website and it says "Prepared for shipment" so my question is how long does it take to ship out after it says that? The date on my order says it will not ship until July 14th is there any chance of receiving it and earlier than the 14th.

Just yesterday I checked my status and it showed "prepared for shipment" I ordered mine June 21 in late afternoon. My delivery time still shows July 14th but I think it will come early as this week since its already in this stage I pray and pray.

It usually ships out within the next day or so. You are almost there. :-)

Mine says "prepared to ship" as well.
My bank account currently doesn't have 210 in it right now so I went to change the debit card number and it says I cant because it's prepared to ship and no further changes can be made.
When I purchased the phone it showed up on my bank account online that Apple debited 210. HOwever within a few days it dropped off and I can't seem to see if it actually ws debited. Will they recharge me again for 210 when it ships? or is it done already? what happens the amount isnt in my account, they dont give the iphone to someone else do they?

it's done already. if it says prepared to ship your card has already been authorized!

Alright, but if that's the case then why in looking back did the charge just drop? or maybe it dropped off but they still took the money out of my bank account when i ordered on june 19th? i'm SO confused!

From Schweb: I should probably explain this "hold" concept because alot of people don't understand it.

Companies will often authorize a card for the entire amount, or a portion of it, and that authorization usually only shows up for one or two days depending on your bank or credit card company. Nothing was actually charged and nothing is really being "held". Some banks don't even show you these temporary authorizations at all since they're really meaningless to the end consumer.

Once the items ship, then the company actually charges the card.

A whole slew of people moved to "prepared for shipment" on Fri night night/Sat morning. Some have been shipped and should arrive later this week. Some, like mine, have been at "prepared for shipment" for 4 days. Also people that ordered 1 week after most of us have already been shipped. There seems to be no methodological way Apple is shipping these out. Very random and it's annoying. If I ordered over a week before Joe Shmo, I should definitely get my phone before he does. Two thumbs down for Apple.
