Found this tracking tip
This does work...Apple says my order is "Preparing for shipment" but after doing this is says my order is activley on the way.
Your iPhone 4S may have already shipped. Here's how to check | TUAW - The Unofficial Apple Weblog
Hope this helps.

Nice tip. I was on the computer with everybody on pre-order wanting to do a pre-order than guys were getting emails from there carriers saying 14th to 21st shipping, etc. So I decided waiting in line on launch day is my best bet. Alot of people will be getting late shipments however. Good luck to you. What city is your phone in now since you did confirm your tracking and did it say you will recieve it on the 14th.

What did you enter into the UPS site to get your tracking info?
BTW, My card was charged about 3pm yesterday and my status page shows delivery by 10/14.
Having the iPhone4s Black 32gb delivered to my work location. My first iPhone. Coming over from Droid 2. Hope Im not making a mistake.

I'm still STILL!!!!!!!!!! stuck on Preparing for Shipment. UPS trick doesn't work yet. CC charge still processing. Black 64 ordered from Apple 05:15 Friday. Maybe I'll only check 4000 times today instead of 5000. Maybe I'll install OS5 on something when I get home.

You guys, I'm willing to bet all preordered devices done on the 7th will be shipped today, or tomorrow at the latest - and will still arrive late afternoon Friday.
The preordering system is so messed up it seems, unorganized and random, but I think they got it figured out. What might help is just trying not to look at your status', and I'm willing to bet your orders all arrive on time.

I see a thread in a couple of days saying "Hey guys, sorry for the delay, I'm having so much fun with this phone i forgot to post a video!" and then a video comes up...which just shows something random, which won't be able to prove whether its an iPhone 4S or not, and that'll be it...

26gb white verizon shipped from China
Shipment showed up on UPS around midnight Oct 11. Apple sent the "your iphone has shipped" at 5:48am on Oct 12. Order status online shows tracking link AND link to pre-sign for shipment. Delivery set for Friday "by the end of the day". I ordered va Apple website approx 6am Oct 7. No sign yet of shipment of black 16gb I ordered at 6pm.
According to ups tracking it shipped on Oct 12 at noon, China time, 12 hours ahead of eastern time. Ups only lets you check up to current day, so I think the tracking trick only works when your time zone catches up with your shipping day. (trick=go to ups.com, find tracking, select tab for "track by reference", enter the phone number with your apple id account--try every number if you aren't sure, enter country and zip).
No charge shows yet on my credit card. Got a phone number in my email and it doesn't show up yet on my family plan. No one answered, I had to try.
