    Its a mess this year. I ordered from ATT& twice before and everything went smoothly. They are basically clueless when it comes to iPhone 5 .
    The staff doesnt know what theyre talking about. 2 of the 3 people I talked to told me " your order will be SHIPPED by 9/21" and When I told them about the email I got shortly after my order saying DELIVERED by 9/21, they said at this point they cant see anything that indicates any shipping BEFORE 9/21 so a DELIVERY by 9/21 is highly unlikely.
    A 3rd associate I talked to , told me that my order is being processes with an expected 9/21 delivery.

    Now Within this thread I have seen lots of people who ordered through Apple.com or Vz and they have updated tracking info. However NONE that posted here that has an AT&T order (directly from att.com)
    Maybe they will just put ALL of the info online today or tomorrow. But if we dont have ANY tracking info, what are the chances of an actual 9/21 delivery?
    Based on everything I have heard, tracking info should be in the order status site by end of day today. That is, of course, if your order hasn't been used as a coaster.... I am beginning to think a fat guy named Frank at AT&T has used mine to wipe his Doritos fingers.

    Mine is in Nashville. Friday delivery by 3pm. UPS.
    Ditto (but with FedEx). Just got my email from Verizon. Black, 32 GB, upgrade pricing, order confirmation email received at 2:58 am eastern Friday morning.

    States "Future Delivery Requested" so since it is only a request...

    (Ha, I know, but it's on it's way!)

    Now to bite the bullet on a case. Thinking I will be better off at a brick and mortar...

    FYI - Your local Verizon store will look up your order the same way you do.

    All I can say is that it must be a heck of a long flight from Anchorage, AK to what I'm guessing will be Louisville, KY.

    It left Anchorage, AK at 12:58 AM and hasn't landed anywhere yet.....

    Any apple.com 9/21 preorders yet to find their tracking number?
    Mine still says "Preparing for shipment" on apple.com as of 10am CDT. Ordered on the 14th at 12:15am PDT. Says: "delivers 9/21 via standard shipping".

    Looks like its just you and me on the AT&T boat

    No tracking number here either, my order was placed right at midnight pacific and I got my email confirmations at 12:01.

    I think we will have tracking numbers sometime tomorrow.
    Put me on that boat too. AT&T - ordere through apple.com. 32gb black model. Still no shipping status - even using the UPS track by reference method. I'm wondering if will be delivered FedEx. ???

    So here's my story.

    Pre-ordered through Verizon website at 6am EST 9/14. Got a delivery date of 9/21. Last night (around 5pm) when they went to charge my Amex, it was flagged by Amex as possible fraud and subsequently denied. I immediately got a call and email from Amex and through their automated system validated the charge. But unfortunately, the initial charge was denied due to the possible fraud alert until I could verify things. I didn't receive any 'denied charge' email from Verizon and it was not re-tried. When I went to then check my order status all it said was 'processing, payment has not been taken' and now the shipping date was 10/5!!! I was extremely pissed and called Verizon multiple times. No there could really give me any information and they were surprised I hadn't received an email alert from Verizon that the charge had been denied.

    Then low and behold this morning around 10:50am, I check my Amex and there is a Verizon charge on there. When I now go to Verizon's website it says that the expected ship date is unavailable. I was getting ready to cancel my Verizon order and just go stand in line somewhere on launch day but now it looks like I'm committed to Verizon online. I just don't know when to expect the phone. My concern was that the initial denied charge would bump me completely to the back of the line. But then the charge this morning makes me think that I may have my soon relatively soon. Anyone with a similar experience or more info on this situation?

    It can't hurt to try but I'm pretty sure you won't be able to change the shipping address over the phone. Otherwise anyone could do that and make your iPhone their iPhone. Usually only the shipper can change the address. In the chance that they would let you change the address, they would need some kind of proof and I'm not sure what they would accept. The shipper has paid FedEx to ship to the specified address. Changing that address would break the agreement that they paid for.

    Let us know how you make out.

    Whew. Both my 16GB and 64GB are sitting patiently in Tennessee now. Ordered off of Verizon website the morning of the 14th and received confirmations at 2:18am and 2:24am central respectively. All is well as it can be. So, here is hoping that neither phone has any issues. It'll be a mess trying to exchange within that 14 day window when they likely won't have any stock to work with.

    I just got my tracking # from Verizon! Shows it leaving Memphis today via overnite shipping, but delivery date shows that it's being "held" until the 21st. Oh well, maybe Fedex will screw up and deliver it eary

    Please, you guys will get your phones on time. Relax! If apple says you will get it on the 21st, you will. In that regard, they are perfect.
    See the FedEx article in today's wall street journal. The apple iPhone account especially preorders is a bonanza for FedEx and the other carriers so they want to make sure you receive it on the 21st.

    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000...2117272560.htm


    I am at a much higher, real frustration level than you guys. I woke up at 2:30 eastern to preorder and kept getting a message on the website stating store under maintenance, until close to 4 am local time despite refreshing the site and opening it on ipad as well. The app on my iphone allowed me in immediately but didn't provide the option to add a line, which is what I needed to do to get the phone. The Verizon site let me in immediately but when I tried to add a line, it kept telling me that I was on a new standalone plan.

    I finally ordered my iPhone around 4 am on the apple site on my iPad with my laptop saying the site was still under maintenance. I wouldn't have my phone until October 5, the same date people who ordered days later will receive theirs!!!

    You guys are very lucky!!! I am looking forward to you sharing your experiences with your new phone and I will Iive vicariously thru you for a few weeks.
    that stinks, I ordered at around 5am est and my delivery date is 0ct 9th

    Same here. I'm pretty sure it'll come through ups. They'll overnight it from China if they have to.
