That's true. It actually wouldn't be a surprise to me if people receive their phone as early as Monday or Tuesday. I also wouldn't be surprised if they receive it on the 10th or even later.I think Apple is going to be a little strict on when we actually get the phone, i highly doubt we're going to have it in hand before the 10th. I'm hopeful that it arrives sooner than that, but I've never heard of someone getting any Iphone earlier than the release date.
I would agree with you if this was a new iPhone, but its not. Im willing to bet people start getting them early next week.
