    Exclamation iPhone 5 Shipping/Tracking

    This is a place holder for all the threads/posts that will come between Sept. 12th-21st. If you order a iPhone and want to discuss the tracking of your devices, this is the place to do it. Any thread outside of this one regarding the same topic will be closed, no questions asked. This is to keep the forums nice and organized.

    Thanks in advance.

    *This thread will open when pre-orders start.*

    Default Verizon Preorder Date check

    Ok, so I pre-ordered my iPhone at 2:51 AM Eastern (oddly, 10 minutes before the announced time, but this same ten minutes early happened with the iPhone 4 in Feb of 2011).

    Got the email confirmation number and delivery by 9/21. No issues.

    Clicking in the email, on the link that says "Check Your Order Status" brings me to a page, where I enter the order number and last name, and says "Can't be found"

    Try and it comes up. But it lists an expected ship date of 9/26.

    If I go to preorder one now, it says Deliver by 9/21.

    Thoughts? Should I trust I will get it on 9/21 or call (like the OCD freak I can be)?

    I wouldn't worry about that date just yet. VZW is notoriously fickle with it's tracking information. I ordered mine at 3:10am ET this morning and it states "ship by 9/21"...we'll know more early next week.

    Correct, tracking info will not come out for a bit. Calm down everyone, you'll get it sooner rather than later.

    That's not a ship date rather delivery date. Should say "available to ship : delivered by 9/21". At least that's what my confirmation email says.

    On the Verizon site they are distinguishing between the Iphone 5s that will ship on time and those that are at least 2 weeks out..

    On the Verizon confirmation email it says "Deliver by: 09/21/2012" When I go to this link to check the status:

    It says "expected ship date: 09/21/2012"

    Anyone know what that means I hope I get it by the 21st since i ordered at 2:57AM

    Ah okay. I have only ordered from Apple every year. Just don't trust the carriers.

    Default Sprint

    I ordered mine through Sprint this morning at 9am and they said delivery by 9/21. I am however concerned that I did not get a confirmation email. I printed the order summary just to have as record. Tracking information will not be available for 24 hrs they said.

    I was able to this morning. I'm having it shipped to my work, so I don't have to wait until I get home on Friday to play with it.

    My confirmation from Sprint says:

    Thank you for pre-ordering the 32G iPhone 5. You are one step closer to getting your phone. Keep an eye out for a shipping email with your tracking information. Your device will arrive on or around September 21. For questions, visit sprint.com/preorder.

    It said this from the gitgo last night.

    Apple Care is showing on backorder.

    I placed my iphone5 order on the Apple Store website within the first hour of preorder. I kept getting a message that site was undergoing maintenance. I ordered phone as soon as site maintenance ended at approximately 3:50 am eastern time..

    I was under the impression that if you preordered from Apple, you would receive it on the 21st. However, my confirmation at the time of the order said it would be shipped in 2 weeks. Now in my account it states that it would be shipped in 2 weeks and the phone will be delivered on October 3.


    Last year, I preordered the 4S on the apple store website many hours later, 9 am easternand I received the phone on the release date. I ordered mine much sooner this time out.

    What is going on? Does this delivery date mean anything or should it be updated at some point by Apple so hopefully, i will receive my phone on the release date.

    The only thing I can think of is that i ordered the 30 pin adapter and on the order it says it is available to ship "October." If this were to affect the ship date of the phone that would be a travesty!

    So I ordered this morning, but have yet to receive a confirmation email. I did however check on My Verizon and the line I purchased the phone for says:

    Our records indicate you recently purchased a device for this line of service but have not activated it yet. You have the option to proceed with your online equipment order after you have activated your new device, or you may contact Customer Service at (800) 922-0204 for further assistance.

    Is anyone else without the confirmation email?

    Same here. Preordered 4s and did what you suggested. Doing it again. If delivered to office, I will have it by 10:30 am. However, if delivered to home, I wouldnt get it until 7:30 pm, as we are the last delivery on the route.
