    Mine sat as well, then went off the grid. Delivery went from 9/22 to 9/21 to 9/20 to.... missing in action!

    Anyone antsy about their package going off the grid, or sitting in a warehouse too long: check what service you’re getting (should be UPS Worldwide Express Saver). For imports to the US, UPS guarantees delivery within 1-2 business days from Asia. The package moves really fast once it finds its groove

    As some hope for the rest of us waiting for our pre-orders to ship I figured I'd share.

    I pre-ordered my phone, the Jet Black 128gb 7 Plus iPhone, from Apple at 3am Eastern time the day of release and by the time the receipt was emailed to me at 311am it had an expected ship date of 9/26-10/3. I also signed up for their upgrade yearly plan.

    To my pleasant surprise, I received tracking today from Apple and UPS that my phone was shipped and will be arriving on Tuesday 9/20!

    So, for those of you anxiously anticipating the shipment and arrival of your shiny new devices, hold out hope that it will come before the expected shipping dates and you will be finding the many new things to complain about it no time lol.
    To provide an update, I am clearly not getting the phone as originally expected today. This morning UPS updated the tracking for the first time since my original notification of shipment and it is now only in Korea. The scheduled delivery date has been updated to information unavailable instead of stating an expected date. Quite frustrating this process has become but nothing I can do about it. Hopefully it will get here by the end of the week still.

    Exactly what my tracking looks like but now it shows it has arrived in Anchorage Alaska at 12:25pm so there's some progress!

    Aaaannd this.

    Thought all was well w/ arrival scan @ Louisville. Next should have been departure scan from KY to my city, then out for delivery. But UPS would also be able to declare that. Instead, woke up to find HK and delivery unavailable, rescheduling...

    Went online and found one available for pickup. Reserved for today.

    It just arrived in Jamaica, NY and that means it will be here this afternoon! Not too bad, just a day later and still way earlier than my initial estimate of 9/26-10/4! Will update you all when I get home from work and set this fingerprint and scratch magnet up!

    Btw it is going into a spigen clear case immediately incase anyone was wondering!

    Woke up to find my phone is now in Atlanta but still don't know if it will be delivered today. Hopefully they just forgot to update the tracking and it's currently on a truck for delivery

    Got a email from UPS and it should be here today. My case should be here from Amazon today, but I don't know if I'm going to put it in a case since I hate them with a passion.

    It has now arrived and departed from Hong Kong - both after it arrived in Louisville.
    Glad I was able to reserve one for pickup!

    And the drama does not stop with this phone. So it arrives in my city and I get an email that it will be delivered today, but the stats on the web site doesn't show that it's out for delivery. The truck that comes to my area typically leaves around 7:45am. Grrrrrrrr

    Received my 7+ black 128GB today and it couldn't have gone any smoother for me. Preordered at 8 am eastern time on the 9th and it originally stated October 4th-10th. Then got a shipment notification on Monday stating that it would be here by Friday (the 23rd) but instead it made it to me today! Not too shabby, from China to the UP of Michigan in 2 days. First preordered device for me from Apple so here!

    I'm ultimately going to get the Speck Presidio Clear with the cherry blossom designs. And a Speck Clear. I'd like a Sonix too.

    Right now whatever they've got there.

    Finally! Now if only I could ditch all this traffic to get home and see it! lol

    And I agree, overall it was a pretty smooth process and arrived 5 days earlier than the original expectation of the 26th.

    Happy iPhone day to everyone else that received theirs today as well!
