    wow... I stand corrected....

    Actual shipment date and receipt of your order is not guaranteed and may be subject to delays for reasons that include, but are not limited to, product availability, inventory, credit issues, number porting or carrier delays....
    nooooooooooooooooo!!!!!

    Guessing Verizon doesn't want us to get the phones earlier than Friday, thats why the orders don't update until they ship

    Great catch, plus I dont see any ORIGINATION country , only MEMPHIS TN
    What happened to the rest of tracking !?
    I knew there would some who do not believe me. I saw the envelope issue also, they must have made an error. The tracking number is shown in my email from Verizon with my iPhone order number. I didn't order a magazine, which is the only thing that would fit in a envelope. FedEx said it was just a error and not to worry.

    Believe it to don't, just posting my order status..... Do what you want with it.

    I was told by Verizon customer service that they wouldn't begin porting the numbers from att to verizon until Wednesday or Thursday, but that my phone is still supposed to ship this week.

    Does anyone know if changing from AT&T to Verizon would affect an order if I am transferring phone #s?
    Unless your contract is up you will be charged a substantial early termination fee

    I pre-ordered mine on Friday, then on Sunday I got an email from Apple offering AppleCare+ for 2 years for $99. Not really familiar with this plan - anyone have any thoughts? Is this a good deal?

    Thx

    Same here except I received my confirmation email at like 3:15am. A lot of sites say that online orders are being pushed back.

    How do the carrier pre-orders work? Are the carriers guaranteed a certain number of phones?

    I'm starting to get a bit worried. On the Verizon site, I'm still getting the "We received your order and it is in process." message and the ship date is still 9/21... BUT, the transaction still hasn't hit my checking account. I would have though the order would have been processed by now and my iPhone5 on the way...

    Anyone else with Verizon experiencing the same problems? Everything went through at around 7am EST on the 14th (so 4 hours after pre-orders started).

    I'll probably give Verizon a call later in the day... but their reps have never been very helpful. I just hope they have my info down. I'll definitely be raising hell if my order didnt' go through and I have to wait weeks for the device.

    Same thing on mine, and I ordered the minute I could get the website up on my computer at 2am CDT.

    Carriers get an initial allotment from Apple - and the carriers then decide how many they want to allot for preorder - customer direct fulfillment and how many to allot to retail stores for public launch day.

    Pre-orderers get some kind of notice when their phones should be expected to arrive on order confirmation emails - if you ordered early enough, you should get an expected delivery date of 9/21.

    That's good news. That's what I would have thought anyway. I can't imagine hardware not shipping just because they couldn't figure out the porting. Worst case you have a thicker iPod touch.

    Glad to see I'm not the only one. Hopefully it just means that VZW is just running behind on processing, but that we will still have our devices in time!

    I'm obsessively checking my order status today. Probably not healthy, but oh well.

    Same haha.

    Probably would have been easier to have ordered directly with Apple, but my family has been with VZW for a long time and we have quite a few plans with them... so I assumed they would accommodate. Guess I just need to wait and see

    How much does the phone weigh? Are you proposing that Apple is screwing with me and sending me a box full of packing peanuts?

    To further break it down:

    iPhone - 3.95 oz
    iPhone plug - .8 oz
    iPhone cable - .8 oz
    iPhone earbuds - .8 oz

    Making the packaging weigh just about as much as the phone, charger, and earbuds. lol

    Just got off the phone with Verizon. I Ordered 2 iPhone 5's and they are shipping the devices that were ordered on the 14th on Wednesday. He told me that I will receive a Tracking Number. I ordered my devices at 2PM EST. This is for the black 16gb phones. He said if I had a white or 32gb or 64gb that some arent get shipped right away.

    My preorder still says processing. He said the reason it still says this is because it has not shipped yet and it will be shipped Wednesday and get it on the 21st.

    Is this a Verizon order or another carrier? Or directly through Apple?
