    Anybody know If you live in an apartment complex and nobody's home when FedEx drops the package off does it automatically go with the front office? Or do they take it back to the facility? Will leaving a note on your door with your number and name work to have them drop it off at the front office?
    I bet it will hang at the office. I LOVE apartment complex in tempe as they are filled with gorgeous asu coeds.

    When you use your phone number in "track by reference", use ONLY the numbers. Do not insert any dashes or spaces or parens. For example, phone number 222-333-4444 should be entered as 2223334444.

    Keep calm and carry on.

    Ahh! leaving out the dashes made all the difference! Thanks!! Here's the status of my order:

    In My Verizon main page it shows my iPhone 4 as my device but they updated my upgrade eligibility and my contract to 2014!! Guessing that means the upgrade purchase processed and all that is left to do is activate my new phone!!! CANT WAIT!!! ha ha

    I don't think anyone that ordered from apple.com has received any info except "Preparing for Shipment".

    I ordered 64gb black on VZW site at 4:30 am EST on launch date. Got confirm within minutes. Checked status over weekend, showed ship date as 9/21. Checked status this morning and got "there is an error with your order. Please refer to the email sent for more information." BUT i never received an email. Delivery date now been bumped to 10/5. Called VZW and they don't know what the problem is but they said they'd get back to me. Any thoughts?
    I would say don't worry about it. You should get an email with shipping info on it today.

    Mine Apple account still shows preparing for shipment, ordered a Sprint 32GB white iPhone 5 at 3:27 eastern time through Apple on my iPad with Safari after problems with Chrome and Explorer on my laptop. I've tried the track by reference trick for UPS and FedEx with no success. Anyone else order a Sprint iPhone through Apple?
    Same exact boat as you. Ordered two Sprint iPhone 5's at 2:30 Central through Apple.com. Track by reference not working for UPS or FedEx.

    I wonder how many bosses are dealing with employees switching days or will be dealing with the *cough cough* phone calls come Friday morning??

    I'm still waiting for my account to be charged as a sign of SOME movement. AT&T is painfully slow.
