I spoke with AT&T. Having pre-ordered many phones over the last few years I know their system well. I only bring that up because after speaking with two different reps, they sound uncertain about this particular phone. Usually they can readily give me a window of time estimated for shipping. They could not do that today. So I called the Corporate Store Mgr I've been doing a high volume of business with and he was equally uncertain. I was also able to identify this as an issue with the supplier, not AT&T. Therefore I'm going forward with no expectations, just an open mind.
