AT&T Confirming Shipment of iPhone 4 Pre-Orders

Those customers lucky enough to successfully place iPhone 4 pre-orders through AT&T before the company's servers imploded last week might be interested to know that the carrier has begun confirming shipment to customers via FedEx. The carrier's activity comes after customers who pre-ordered through Apple began seeing movement yesterday.

Many customers' order statuses are showing their items having shipped on Friday, June 18th, but only now is AT&T updating its website with shipping information and sending out confirmation emails.

Apple's iPhone 4 is set to launch on Thursday, although a number of Apple pre-order customers are seeing FedEx delivery estimates of Wednesday. Apple has in the past, however, coordinated with carriers to hold delivery until official product launch days, and it is likely the company will do so again for iPhone 4.
