    Now my account has been charged and the VZW site now says that it was "sent for processing". Crossing my fingers and toes that I get my iPhone on Friday.

    Hey all-my verizone iphone shipped on the 18th and says overnight shipping- but it also says "future delivery requested." Does anyone know if we can pick it up at the fed ex facility once it arrives since it seems they won't deliver it from the truck until the 21st??
    I have tried this before, and "at the facility" does not mean "accessible". Most stuff gets sorted from incoming truck to outgoing truck - they only bring inside if it is already labeled to "hold for pickup". They can't just locate or pull something from a truck when a million boxes look all the same. They have tracking numbers, yes - but would need something like RFID to locate specific items.

    With iPhones, it sounds like Apple instructions are pretty strict: deliver on 21st but not before - no matter how close to ones house it might be -- in this case, that would include station pickup. It may sit in any number of places waiting for 21st - because that is how Apple set it up.

    Just be glad yours is coming on Friday. Some of the rest of us are a few weeks out, having gotten in on second hour, but missed the first batch anyway. Have fun with your new toy!

    Wow - and I thought delivery by Oct 5 was bad. Still would have liked to be in first batch - rather than the batches of frenzied-builds meant to pump them out as quickly as possible. I know they're always find, but still... first would have felt best!

    Man I was hoping to wake up to an accidental shipping status of "out for delivery" ...but no such luck. They have, however, scanned it in EIGHT different times in Memphis...WTH?!

    Five of those scans were made by your local Samsung design team agents

    Sooooo frustrating....mine departed Anchorage, AK well over 24 hours ago and has never landed anywhere. I thought for sure when I checked this morning it would have at least landed somewhere.

    I still have to track by reference since I haven't received any tracking info from Apple.com yet. Apple.com still says "Preparing for Shipment". However, they did charge my credit card on 9/16 which is when it left China.

    Only 2 days to go.....

    For those who don't know you can find out where your iPhone is by going to the UPS site and enter your phone number in the Track by Reference section. Mine has been sitting in a UPS station in Louisville for 38 hours.

    Interesting. The payment for my iPhone has been sitting on my credit card for several days as a Pending Transaction. Now it is gone, completely. Hoping I just caught it in the middle of the switch from Pending and Posted.

    Good morning all! I just got off the phone with a Verizon rep and they're charging our credit cards today and our phones are being shipped out. They're waiting for FedEx to pick the phones up. Then we will have tracking numbers.

    This was the Northeast location, btw.

    Mine too. But departure scan according to the website means it can go to several facilities before being rescanned in. It will get here.

    Here is something peculiar...I tracked by reference number and it was in KY yesterday. It shows a departure scan from KY and Alaska on the same date only a few minutes apart. Apparently my phone is coming in 2 separate pieces and I'm going to have to assemble it once it arrives, haha.

    Still says delivery on 9/21 though

    My payment has been processed now with VZW. Completely charged.

    And like someone else mentioned, it has been in transit, then arrived at TN, then in transit, and Arrived at TN, now in Transit again....wtf is going on? haha Either the TN facility is HUGE, or they are playing with us!

    I ordered (2) phones, one for me and one for the wife at around 3:15 AM day of launch. They showed as shippped yesterday with Standard Overnight service. I got all excited that they would be coming today but alas, that was not the case as they are at another FedEx location today. I'm hopeful for tomorrow delivery as there won't be anyone there to accept the shipment on Friday. If the phones don't arrive tomorrow, I feel a strong cold coming on that may require bed rest!!

    I ordered my phone through the Apple store app and checked my bank account and the charge went through. So I am expecting the status on my account to change sometime today or early tomorrow. I am guessing it will be overnighted today!!!! I can't wait until I get my phone!

    I tried searching through the threads and haven't noticed anyone with the same issue, but I ordered 45 minutes after launch via my Apple Store app. I got a confirmation email that said I should receive shipment on Oct 2. My order still says "processing" although my credit card has been charged. Is that normal since I'm still 2 weeks away from delivery?

    Usually your CC is charged when it ships. My guess is you'll get it before Oct 2. especially since you ordered as early as you did.

    I received my confirmation around 3:40 EST on the 14th. I just checked UPS by using my cell number as a reference. My phone originated in Nashville and is now in Louisville. UPS had no information listed until last night. Scheduled delivery on Friday, end of day.

    My UPS tracking says the phone has 'Departed Anchorage', with 2 days left to ship and expected on-time delivery.

    Reviews and videos are now starting to come out showing the iPhone 5 performance and features. Looks better and better the more I see, so can't wait to get my hands on one. Also, expected ship dates on new orders have now slipped to 3-4 weeks , so consider yourself lucky if you got in an early order. It was worth the pain and aggrivation!
