I had a question about the shipping process of my iPhone 5. I ordered it on 9/14 at 12:30am, got the confirmation that it would be here 9/21. All of that is well and good.
I haven't received a "your order has shipped!" email from Apple as of yet, but I tried that UPS workaround with the reference number and all that to find my package, and it says that it has shipped.
Here comes the odd part. I have been tracking it like the impatient man I am, and noticed two odd things.
First, UPS says that it departed from Anchorage, AK and arrived in Louisville, KY. All fine. But earlier today I checked the tracking again and it told me that it was back in Anchorage, AK. Weird, no? Do you think this could just be a delay from when they scanned it from earlier?
Another odd thing - it says that the package is only 0.40kg in weight. Surely that can't be right...

Possibly. There's a 4 hour time difference between Anchorage and Louisville... and if the tracking history is sorted chronologically, it's possible that the flight from Anchorage to Louisville is less than 4 hours... so yeah... but either way, no need to worry. The phone will get there when it gets there... Patience, young grasshopper...

Hahahahaha, mine says .8. I thought maybe they messed up and shipped me two. Then I noticed mine was in pounds instead of kilos.

Most likely a glitch in their scanning. Mine's still in KY. We'll see where they are on Wednesday. I would expect to see a departure scan from KY. I got my confirmation e-mail at 12:18am, and haven't gotten a shipping message from Apple yet. Also, as the others have mentioned, 1KG = 2.2 lbs. .4KG = .8lbs.
