I was told that I was very high on a PhD funding waitlist in January last year and then received an offer in mid-May. From what I heard this wait was quite long since admin were dragging their heals a bit, so to still be waiting at the end of June seems extreme. I had better luck chasing my potential supervisors for insight on stuff like this so that might be better than contacting the DGS (assuming they know who their supervisor would be).

If I were the OP I would *call* - not email - the DGS or the admissions office. I think philosophers (and perhaps academic in general) have a tendendy to deal with every issue by email, but if you don't receive responses to your emails in a timely fashion I don't think a phone call is in any way impolite.
