    Yeah, that's the time frame I ordered. My Apple profile shows everything, even stuff I ordered in the past; but no new Iphone 7 plus. I got my confirmation email at 3:07AM.

    Yes, I tried that method. It works but it only shows the shipments that I already know about, that show up in the regular tracking page.

    I know I have the watch coming on 9/16, it's in Kentucky now. I initially thought the phone would be included in that shipment, because of the weight. I watched some unboxing videos, search on the net, and found out that Apple ships the watch in some pretty hefty boxes. Also, my phone still says processing, that's an important thing I should mention.

    The only thing I could have done to make my order get in faster is not forget to check the agreement terms for the Apple installment plan. There were a few other things, in a rush that I forgot here & there, and those few seconds cost me, it's amazing but it did.

    Having said that, I've yet to read about anyone who ordered the Jet black 7 plus 256GB model, receiving any shipment information.

    Yeah, if the watch boxes are the same as last time, they are pretty hefty. I thought my watch and phone would be in the same box, but it looks like they're not as I have two different tracking numbers.

    Every second counts. I had an issue with my payment address, and after fumbling around with that for a few seconds, right after I placed my order the times went to 2-3 weeks.

    Ha ha! yeah I fumbled around also, but still got it ordered pretty fast. I got into the "ships in 1 to 2 weeks" group. It went to 2-3 weeks right after I got my order in also.

    I'm trying to decide if I should try to score one Friday, since I'm off, or just wait it out. The danger in that is trying to balance canceling the online order, and getting in an order online to pick up before supplies dwindle.

    Cannot change the date range to include the 16th. Can only go to 9/14 so it does not show anything for that range.

    My S/N shows up in the supportprofile.apple.com link above though, just the Apple Store shows it as Preparing for Shipment. My case has shipped however and should arrive tomorrow.

    I would only cancel the online order if you actually snag on Friday. Then again, I would not cancel the order, but resell one for a little bit extra due to demand.

    That's not a bad idea. I was trying to stay on Apple's installment program, but I may have to just buy one outright Friday if I can. That's what I usually do anyway.

    I did the same thing two years ago for the Iphone 6 Plus. I beginning to wonder if it's even worth pre ordering a popular model or, just waiting for launch day. It doesn't seem to do any good to preorder, if I can get the same model on launch day at the store. Who knows. I may not even be able to get one on launch day either.

    I'm just waiting anxiously for Verizon to at least update my order status from processing, lol. During the order it gave me the date of 10/5. But I've heard of peoples order updating to show a sooner date. Doubt I'll get that lucky but a guy can only hope.

    More risk, and time used waiting in line on launch day, only to not have one available for purchase. Hence, preorder is better, no?

    Either check your order number in UPS, via Track Reference (omit the last two numbers!), or check your Apple Support Profile page.You'll more than likely see the device, and the serial number for it. At least you'd know once has been assigned to you, etc...

    Does that work even though I ordered from Verizon and not Apple?

    Yes, if you actually pre order and get it delivered on launch day. If you see it online and reserve it, there is no risk, you just have to wait in line. When I got my Iphone 6 plus, my order from At&t hadn't shipped. I believe it had been a few days past the launch day with no progress, just processing.

    I checked online and the model I wanted was available at a local mall, but I hesitated, and it was gone. I did this for a few days and then finally, when my At&t order hadn't shipped and was still processing, I reserved one online when the model I wanted became available.

    The line wasn't bad after a fews days, and the Apple employees were real helpful. Dealing with AT&T and their Next program where I had the issue. This year I will check to see if I can score one since I'm off for that day. It just depends what stage my order is at that time. I may just wait it out.

    Well, looks like I'm finally sort of pre-ordered. After missing the boat for pre-ordering on the upgrade program as an upgrade from my 6s+ that I bought with the program last year, I got an email from Apple this morning apologizing for the upgrade program problems and while there was indeed new stock to pre-order for plus's at both my local stores.......only in 32GB for AT&T. So I filled out the 2nd option of "tell us what you want and we'll get back to you in 2-3 days with when you can expect to get your phone in the store". I guess at least I won't have to start checking daily at 8am on the 17th. So now I wait to see when my 128GB matte black Plus will be ready. Decided to skip the jet black due to the durability of the finish concerns that are being talked about but more so because of the long waits right now for that color.

    Just read on T-Mobile Netherlands my iPhone 7 Plus 256GB Gold has a delivery date for 2-3 weeks. I ordered within the first hour last Friday, but it seems I have to wait anyway.

    It just worked for me after I read what I needed to do over again. Had put my phone number in the box instead of the order number without the last two numbers. All looking good at the moment and sitting in Kentucky with who knows how many other phones.

    Anyone who preordered through AT&T, with a shipping date range of 9/23-9/30, have any movement as of yet? My status shows "Preparing for shipment". But i have not yet seen the tax charges go through.
