    I think that's the same for everyone right now w/ Verizon. Probably start seeing activity on Monday.
    Phew I feel relieved! Thanks! Hopefully something changes tomorrow!

    I just checked my Verizon order & noticed that there isn't a track number. It just says 'We have received your order & it is being processed" and that my expected ship date is 9/21/12. Nothing is next to where it says tracking number!
    That's exactly what is says for mine too.

    I received my confirmation email from AT&T at 2:09 am CST - 9 minutes after pre-ordering went live. The email said the iPhone 5 would be delivered 9/21. I also received at text message Friday afternoon saying my order had been processed. The AT&T still says Processing for me. I expect some change in status tomorrow - Monday. Otherwise I may be concerned. The charge on my CC still says pending.

    That's the same for me. Apple site says "Preparing for Shipment", but UPS says it's already been shipped.

    It could say that's it's been shipped through ups because the shipping labels have been produced.

    I ordered a white 64Gb on Friday thru Sprint. I had a charge pending on my cc, which is now an actual charge. I've never been so excited about seeing a charge on my cc for that much money before!!

    The status hasn't changed at all yet on Sprints site, but now that I've been officially charged, it must be moving thru their system!

    At least you guys are seeing something. I received a confirmation email from Verizon, but when I check my order it says the order number can't be found.
    I'm probably doing something wrong. How long are order numbers from Verizon?

    Use the preorder confirmation number, that should work.

    This morning I read an article in USA today that was referenced in LinkedIn. The article indicated that ship dates from all online preorder sites had been pushed back including via the apple store which was now a ship date of October 5. 😰

    I don't think the article is accurate. It probably refers to people who were shut out of the first wave in the first hour such as me. I wasn't able to get thru until 12:50 (1:50 ) eastern time and have a ship date of October 5 so I don't want anyone who originally had a ship date of 9/21 to panic.

    In any event, here is the article.

    This earlier article in USA today seems to be clearer and indicate if you preordered after the first hour, then you have the later ship date because their inventory was sold out in the first hour.

    If the apple site says that where did you get a tracking # for
    UPS?
    I used the method listed below.


    Go to the UPS website and "Track by Reference". Make the following selections/entries:

    Shipment Type: Package
    Shipment Reference: Phone Number (Credit Card Billing)
    Shipment Date Range: Leave default
    Destination Country: Select as appropriate
    Destination ZIP/Postal Code: Select as appropriate

    If you find a match and it has a delivery date matching what you're expecting ex. Sept 21st, you've found the tracking number.
