The maps app will be perfect, any Apple user knows that it will be. If you doubt that, then you don't have much trust in the product you bought-So sell it and get an Android phone.

Why do you Android fanboys keep coming back to this thread? Just leave if you don't like the positive things we are saying, learn to bite your tongue a bit.
All of us like our iPhones but you take fanboyism to a whole new level.

The hate continues for Jeffro, still hasn't left the thread he loves so much. As much as you guys hate on apple, you sure to spend a lot of time talking about it.
I love watching technology progress, especially in mobile computing, so yes, this thread fits in that category. It's also why I was disappointed with the delay of LTE and exclusion of NFC, and many people chose to see that as "hatin." I can't control how other (fanatical) people see things though

I've received 3 e-mails from at&t.

1) order received, where you can track status of order
2) premier order confirming that my order is reserved
3) order shipment notification

my order status as checked in the first e-mail said in process and only changed to shipped after i had received the shipment notification message that contained the tracking info.

if you have not received a tracking message and order still says processing, then i would guess it has not in fact shipped yet. i don't know if that necessarily means that it has been delayed yet though.

Nice. Guess I'm wrong. I was just going off what At&T rep told me. Sorry.

Hmm bizzaro. The AT&T rep I spoke with earlier today (when I was convinced that I hadn't signed the T&Cs) told me "I will just receive my email confirmation regarding shipping later today"... he said I should have it by 8pm at the latest EST.. well we're at almost 4 EST and still nothing

Ordered the 14th at 8:35am EST

If you ordered it at 8am, you aren't getting it until October.

The launch date pre-order shipments sold out in an hour on Apple's site and in 2-3hrs on the carrier sites.

Question: would you rather have

A) Apple maps with nav, 3d, flyover
B) Google maps with none of that.

Just curious.

does your order e-mail say "premier order"? i'm wondering if this might be the difference. i don't know why mine says that, but my guess might be that my sister is on our family plan and she works for whirlpool, so we get that corp discount i think. this might push my order to premier status and perhaps i get priority on having a phone shipped to me? just my guess.

Apple maps because of the turn by turn thing. I really really enjoy that. And the mistakes that they have made in the maps department can be fixed over time pretty simply I think.

Google maps was fine, and if they could have turn by turn on that, set up JUST like it is now, I would love that even more.

Kind of a silly question for a lot of users since most of those features aren't even available on a 4.

If you have a 4, maps is a downgrade (and quite honestly garbage) in almost every single aspect.

The navigation part in the new apps is done by TomTom. It's great. Flawless from what I've seen.

The problem is the actual MAP part.

Not nearly as detailed as Google.
