still nothing from verizon for me, but I am sure today is the day...by the way heard from someone I trust on this and they say that verizon people will be happy on friday while a lot of att people will not be...it was also posted in this thread that Att people might not get theirs till monday. The person I know also said that Verizon was really on the ball with this shipment.

Haven't got any tracking information from Apple yet... I checked the order page and it says "Preparing for Shipping" and delivers by 9/21...
Checked UPS and the package is still in Louisville...
Checked CC and I don't see the charge anywhere, not even in pending...
I hope Apple provides some updates soon...

Ordered Apple.com 12:15am PDT day of preorder... Order status showing STILL "Preparing for Shipment", with "Delivers 9/21".... but I'm losing hope... no shipping notification emails, no CC charge yet, no UPS reference search results (using both home/cell and work numbers)... tried FedEx Reference search, nothing there either....

This whole thread is the reason I used to pre-order but pick up at the Apple Store. I was always guaranteed to get one as long as I got my order in early. I didn't have to worry about it getting delivered on whatever date. I didn't have to worry about being home to sign for it. And, I always had it in my hands and using it by 8:30 am on launch day. However, Apple quit offering that option with the 4s. Now you have to either camp outside the store for hours and hope they have enough in stock to make it to your spot in line or pre-order and go through this mess of not receiving enough tracking information. Obviously pre-ordering is the best route to go to make sure you get one but everyone gets worked up about ship dates and delivery dates. It's just a big frustrating mess! Ugh!!

So this is what I think Apple is doing! We all know they have some sort of agreement with UPS so our phones only get delivered on the 21st. So for all of us who are wondering why Apple is still giving us the "preparing for shipment" stuff should expect to get something from them tomorrow. Apple is probably going to send out our tracking information when they overnight it around the US to our homes on Friday!

If you ordered from Apple and have not heard anything regarding tracking info, try searching UPS Track by Reference Number, as has been reported. I couldn't find anything by Apple's order number, the cell number for the line being upgraded, the cell number for the primary on the account... but I looked again at my order confirmation email and saw that it had my work phone number listed... searched for that number and the tracking info popped up. So the bottom line is (1) don't panic and (2) try the phone number listed on your order as your contact phone number when searching by reference number.

I also wasn't able to change my shipppng address. It automatically chose my billing address even though in my Apple account I have my work address listed as my default shipping address.
