ok.. from what I am gathering here from people's posts at least with Sprint ( I assume the other carriers) is that they already have the phones here in their warehouses in the US so that is why most haven't shipped because of they are 1-2 days away.. Whereas the orders from Apple are actually coming from where they were made (in China) so those are shipping first due to the longer distance to the receiver of the phones.
Is this possible you think?

I got my tracking number from Verizon but when I enter it in in UPS it states that >>> UPS could not locate the shipment details for your request. Please verify your information and try again later.>>>
Not sure what that means but it says it was shipped yesterday on the Verizon order status page, assuming that it has probably shipped but hasn't reached a destination yet.......anyone else have the same problem?

Typically, Verizon uses Fedex. or that has been my experience in the past. When Verizon released the iPhone4, I received mine via Fedex two days before the official release. I can't help but wonder if the pre release date deliveries with the iPhne 4 had something to do with the iPhone 4S being shipped via UPS... Food for thought...

Scroll through the list or enter in "FDX" or "UPS" without the "" in the box and click "View Airborne Flights". You will just have to guess which is yours based off the origin and destination. Clicking on the flight number in the "Ident" column will bring up that individual flight.
It will show all flights by whichever carrier you chose, just be aware that sometimes they will use other freight carriers when they have a higher demand than their company fleet can handle so it may not show up.

Also when I talked to ATT about pre-order (I eventually ordered through Apple) They said Applecare+ required a serial number to process. I'm guessing that the fact that my Applecare+ order is completed means that somewhere out there my 4s is waiting as anxiously for me as I am for it...

I haven't received an email from Apple or AT&T saying it's offically shipped. I'm so confused.

I placed my order through Apple. Order still shows "Processing Item". I contacted Apple and was informed that my black iphone 4s will arrive on 10/14/2011. I asked "how it if it hasn't even shipped?" they said Apple orders placed through them are "guaranteed to arrive on 10/14 (if that was your original quoted arrival time). even if the item hasn't shipped yet, Apple will cover any costs to ensure it arrives for 10/14". I hope this is true because the fact that my phone hasn't even shipped is very bothersome. Don't know if thats true or not but I hope so...

Thank you for contacting Verizon Wireless. At this time your Internet Order Reference Number 12345678900000 has been received. Your estimated delivery time is 10/14/2011. To track your package, please visit FedEx.
I've been trying the fedex reference number trick all day in absence of an actual tracking number and no luck. Also tried UPS reference trick an no luck.

Hey dadman and anyone else who ordered from apple and has a status of still processing- I just called apple. They looked up where my phone was shipping from and it's shipping from Pennsylvania, not china. She said I should get a tracking number today or tomorrow for Friday delivery.
