Are the packages being held?
I just tracked my package a few minutes ago. My package is in the same place that it arrived 6am yesterday. Its only two hours away from me. My tracker now says that I have a rescheduled delivery date of Tuesday, February 8. I know for a fact that the weather in SC isn't bad enough to slow down delivery.
Anyone else have a change in delivery?

Exactly, UPS and Fedex deliver the packages not store them. They are not set up to retain packages like this. Also, the more they have to handle the packages the more money it costs them. And you know the business stance that the big companies have these days. It is all about cost reduction and profits. So needless to say, they will be getting rid of every package that is on the trucks that day....weather permitting that is.

UPS and Fedex don't deliver on weekends. The packages are just sitting in the facilities waiting to be delivered.

Just called ups to inquire about the updated delivery date and she said that a revision request was made by the shipper to change the date. She also said that they were told not to allow a pickup.
That sucks because I rescheduled all of my Monday appointments for Tuesday since I have to physically sign for the package.

Packages shipped with special instructions (ex: Do Not Deliver before 2/10/2011) usually will be held. They can sort through all the orders and hold them in a load that doesn't actually leave the facilities. I've seen it done when I worked @ a UPS. But with a phone thats already been available for months, I doubt they will put a hold. Besides it seems most of us who received our tracking number, our phones are either @ our local sort facility or pretty close!

I don't want to appear negative, since I'm really happy to be getting my Verizon iPhone on Monday.
However, as I noted in an earlier post my iPhone shipment was in West Chester, PA UPS on Thursday night. I just got an update from UPS saying the shipment left Philadelphia at 2:15 PM (2-6-11).
So, do the math, and you come up with a Next Day Air service shipment sitting around Philly for 3 days.
Here's hoping everything works out for us anxious Verizon customers.
