With iPhones, it sounds like Apple instructions are pretty strict: deliver on 21st but not before - no matter how close to ones house it might be -- in this case, that would include station pickup. It may sit in any number of places waiting for 21st - because that is how Apple set it up.
Just be glad yours is coming on Friday. Some of the rest of us are a few weeks out, having gotten in on second hour, but missed the first batch anyway. Have fun with your new toy!

Sooooo frustrating....mine departed Anchorage, AK well over 24 hours ago and has never landed anywhere. I thought for sure when I checked this morning it would have at least landed somewhere.
I still have to track by reference since I haven't received any tracking info from Apple.com yet. Apple.com still says "Preparing for Shipment". However, they did charge my credit card on 9/16 which is when it left China.
Only 2 days to go.....

Good morning all! I just got off the phone with a Verizon rep and they're charging our credit cards today and our phones are being shipped out. They're waiting for FedEx to pick the phones up. Then we will have tracking numbers.
This was the Northeast location, btw.

Here is something peculiar...I tracked by reference number and it was in KY yesterday. It shows a departure scan from KY and Alaska on the same date only a few minutes apart. Apparently my phone is coming in 2 separate pieces and I'm going to have to assemble it once it arrives, haha.
Still says delivery on 9/21 though

My payment has been processed now with VZW. Completely charged.
And like someone else mentioned, it has been in transit, then arrived at TN, then in transit, and Arrived at TN, now in Transit again....wtf is going on? haha Either the TN facility is HUGE, or they are playing with us!

I ordered (2) phones, one for me and one for the wife at around 3:15 AM day of launch. They showed as shippped yesterday with Standard Overnight service. I got all excited that they would be coming today but alas, that was not the case as they are at another FedEx location today. I'm hopeful for tomorrow delivery as there won't be anyone there to accept the shipment on Friday. If the phones don't arrive tomorrow, I feel a strong cold coming on that may require bed rest!!

I ordered my phone through the Apple store app and checked my bank account and the charge went through. So I am expecting the status on my account to change sometime today or early tomorrow. I am guessing it will be overnighted today!!!! I can't wait until I get my phone!

I tried searching through the threads and haven't noticed anyone with the same issue, but I ordered 45 minutes after launch via my Apple Store app. I got a confirmation email that said I should receive shipment on Oct 2. My order still says "processing" although my credit card has been charged. Is that normal since I'm still 2 weeks away from delivery?

My UPS tracking says the phone has 'Departed Anchorage', with 2 days left to ship and expected on-time delivery.
Reviews and videos are now starting to come out showing the iPhone 5 performance and features. Looks better and better the more I see, so can't wait to get my hands on one. Also, expected ship dates on new orders have now slipped to 3-4 weeks , so consider yourself lucky if you got in an early order. It was worth the pain and aggrivation!
