    lol, but seriously does it mean overnight delivery for the holiday Shipping reference for type of shipping?
    I'm not really sure what it means. The important part is that it says it is scheduled for delivery 9/21.

    Status just changed to "In Transit" .... hoping it'll be here this evening so I can pick it up tomorrow morning at the local sorting facility.

    **Edit**: Purchased mine over the phone w/ Verizon at 0427. (Approximately hour and a half after the lines opened up)

    when people get tracking numbers it might help if they put where they ordered it and what time...like this

    I got a tracking number finally, ordered on phone through verizon at 9:40 am....(this is just a example)

    that way maybe we can see a pattern of some sorts? also if you have a business or personal account would help, just a suggestion.

    Seems as though there are not many AT&T people in here. I ordered my 32gb black AT&T at 3:01am ET through Apple. Tracked it through UPS and will be getting it Friday by end of day!

    I would have purchased mine through Apple if I didn't have negotiate an upgrade date. Seriously.... I cannot believe how hard it is to get your date bumped up 9 days.

    Sorry, I was quoting someone else that made a comment of my original post.

    Here is my original post.:

    When hit view/ edit order details on left hand side, it says shipping method, Holiday Shipping.

    Anyone know what that means? It still says Delivers 9/21

    His Reply was:

    "That means you'll have it in time for Christmas!!!! Sorry--I couldn't resist!"

    I don't think anyone that ordered from apple.com has received any info except "Preparing for Shipment".
    That seems to be the case. I'm guessing the sheer amount of preorders has caused a lag in their oder update system.

    I ordered my iphone 4 from AT&T when it first came out and I tried to check on my order and nobody even knew I had an order. This year I just decided to go through Apple but keep AT&T since they give me a great discount.

    Awesome! When I check Verizon website it says "Expected Ship date: Not available at this time."

    It use to say 9/21 then it said 10/5 then it went to that ^^. I ordered it at 330am EST. I'll be pretty pissed off if I don't get it Friday! I work at UPS so I was hoping to get it first thing!

    Agreed, good point. I ordered through VZW at about 3:15am (eastern time) Friday morning. Received my email and tracking number this afternoon with expected delivery Friday.

    So i signed up for the UPS My Choice... it now allows me to select the option to "Hold for Customer Pickup" instead of them attempting to deliver it on Friday.

    I may just do that! I only signed up for the free service, not the one thats $40/yr
