Some Lucky S.O.B.s Are Already Receiving Their iPhone 4Ses In The Mail

While Apple may not be all too happy about it, some German customers are ecstatic today having received their iPhone 4S pre-orders three days before the device is scheduled to launch.

Several customers in Germany have sent images of their devices to the blog Macerkopf.de, including a picture of the box that sports the new iPhone 4S moniker, and a screenshot of Siri in German.

The device isn’t set to launch until Friday, October 14, but as with the iPhone 4 which launched last summer, some customers are lucky enough to receive them early. In the U.S., many have already received shipping notifications, though we’re yet to hear U.S. customers are receiving their order.

Have you got your new iPhone yet?

    Even though I preordered on the 7th – mine says “prepping for shipment” on the apple site.  So I still have no clue if I am getting it on the 14th even though it is supposed to arrive on the 14th. I just hope they are doing this so that US doesnt get the shipments earlier. IE – It REALLY is in transit and not just hanging out at a dock somewhere at Foxconn.  We can hope! Lucky person in Germany!

    You can look up in UPS reference tracking. Just use the phone number that you used on your billing address. Mine says the same on the apple website but when I looked up my phone number xxxxxxxxxx it showed in china.

  • greenEL

    Me too.  It left alaska about 7 or 8 hrs. ago.

    Yes I’m jealous, but do they deserve to be called sons of bitches for something that they have no control over? I think that is the real issue here… I’m leaning towards ‘yes.’

  • Phil

    Es war gerade Glück, nichts anderes.

    Can anyone buy me one?! I am a poor student from Ontario, Canada and in an unprecedented move, I am finally ready to make the switch from RIM to Apple. Although I study law, I am a huge technology enthusiast - especially mobile technology.

    So, any generous readers willing to help another poor avid cultofmac.com reader out?!  ;)

    This title is the straw that broke the camel’s back. I’m not coming back to this site. Just because you don’t have the phone yet doesn’t make these people “S.O.B.s”

  • Martabnyc

    to se poczekasz hahaha 

  • JP Jay

    LOL, loosen up. It’s just a figure of speech. He’s not meaning it in a literal sense. 

    Anyways, my iPhone 3gs broke last week so I REEEEAAAALLY need this 4s couple a days before the scheduled delivery date of the 14th…..So yeah, as far as Im concerned, they are luck S.O.B’s

  • Rmoor

    Best title ever.
