Got my tracking number from Verizon last night at 12:24am CST.
Says it will get here the 21st no later than 3:00pm.
My fiance is pissed because we both orders w/ in seconds of each other and mine has shipped first, she hasnt recieved her email from Verizon yet.
I am planning on taking a "Personal Day" on Friday.

I preordered at 0700 on a Verizon business line. The status is awaiting inventory but it still shows an expected delivery date of 9/21. Has anyone else ordered on a business account seen any change in the status of the order to indicate that it has shipped? Thanks

So a lady I just spoke to with Verizon said I can expect a possible delay with 32GB and 64GB phones. Now granted a 'possible' delay is 'possible' with anything. But when I combine that with the fact that I placed two orders 5 minutes apart, with the second order being a 16GB that has already processed and sitting in TN while my first order for a 64GB is still waiting to process...... that makes me a little nervous. I'm usually laid back but if my wife get's her phone on Friday while mine is mia I'll be all sorts of pissed /

Please, you guys will get your phones on time. Relax! If apple says you will get it on the 21st, you will. In that regard, they are perfect.
See the FedEx article in today's wall street journal. The apple iPhone account especially preorders is a bonanza for FedEx and the other carriers so they want to make sure you receive it on the 21st.
I am at a much higher, real frustration level than you guys. I woke up at 2:30 eastern to preorder and kept getting a message on the website stating store under maintenance, until close to 4 am local time despite refreshing the site and opening it on ipad as well. The app on my iphone allowed me in immediately but didn't provide the option to add a line, which is what I needed to do to get the phone. The Verizon site let me in immediately but when I tried to add a line, it kept telling me that I was on a new standalone plan.
I finally ordered my iPhone around 4 am on the apple site on my iPad with my laptop saying the site was still under maintenance. I wouldn't have my phone until October 5, the same date people who ordered days later will receive theirs!!!
You guys are very lucky!!! I am looking forward to you sharing your experiences with your new phone and I will Iive vicariously thru you for a few weeks.

OK, fyi, I was able to pre-authorize delivery through UPS.com by registereing at ups.com/mychoice. Once registered I entered the tracking number into my profile and the option to authorize delivery appeared on the tracking screen. Good Luck!
I ordered from Apple.com.

Just called FedEx.... it appears that the package will be in my area either tomorrow or Thursday. Of course they advised me that the package wont be delivered until 9/21.
As politely as I could, I explained to make things easier on everyone, would it be possible for me to come down to the holding facility and pick the package up. They said yes. Crossing my fingers they'll let me pick it up a day or two early.They refuse to deliver it earlier then 9/21 (Obviously).

I asked when they expect my package to be in... shipment is today and asked if it was over nighted, would it be in by tomorrow... she actually expects it to be in later tonight with early morning pickup tomorrow from the holding facility. CROSSING MY FINGERS!

I'm now convinced that AT&T has no clue what's going on with these phones. Either that, or they stock the online chat center with less than smart staff. This is getting frustrating. In an effort to find out why they removed the hold on my bank account yesterday morning but still haven't charged me I spoke with two reps this morning.
One told me that my order is now slated for shipping between 10/4 and 10/21. BOGUS info. I was told more than once yesterday that as long as an order was in before 9am PST...mine was in before 8:00am EST...that the orders would be shipped by 9/21.
The second rep told me that she can't even see the status of my order right now, but based on when I got it in and the progress it's made up until this point, it's still slated for shipment by 9/21.
All I was after was WHY the hold was lifted but my account still hasn't been charged. I love AT&T and haven't had any issues with them - but you'd think they'd have this iPhone pre-order stuff down to a science by now.

The staff doesnt know what theyre talking about. 2 of the 3 people I talked to told me " your order will be SHIPPED by 9/21" and When I told them about the email I got shortly after my order saying DELIVERED by 9/21, they said at this point they cant see anything that indicates any shipping BEFORE 9/21 so a DELIVERY by 9/21 is highly unlikely.
A 3rd associate I talked to , told me that my order is being processes with an expected 9/21 delivery.
Now Within this thread I have seen lots of people who ordered through Apple.com or Vz and they have updated tracking info. However NONE that posted here that has an AT&T order (directly from att.com)
Maybe they will just put ALL of the info online today or tomorrow. But if we dont have ANY tracking info, what are the chances of an actual 9/21 delivery?
