    On the Verizon confirmation email it says "Deliver by: 09/21/2012" When I go to this link to check the status: https://preorder.verizonwireless.com...cSearchInit.do

    It says "expected ship date: 09/21/2012"

    Anyone know what that means I hope I get it by the 21st since i ordered at 2:57AM

    I had the same problem and it obviously makes a big difference if you're wanting to get the phone by sept. 21.

    So I just called Verizon customer service and at first he said it meant it would ship BY the 21st. So I said "so the confirmation email is wrong?" but after talking to his supervisor he said I should have the phone in hand by the 21st and to disregard the information on "https://preorder.verizonwireless.com/iconic/iconic/screens/IconicSearchInit.do"

    So I am (cautiously) optimistic. This is my first iPhone! So excited!! http://cdn-forums.imore.com/images/icons/icon10.gif

    Also I noticed other people saying that it is better to order it through Apple. But as far as I could see you CANNOT pay full price for the phone on Apple's website if you are eligible for an upgrade. Is that correct?

    So I had to buy it on Verizon because I'm not going to use my upgrade so they can charge me 30 bucks for every 2GB of data. I download that much in 2 days with LTE so in the money I will save the phone will pay for itself. They made it ridiculously tedious to do it through Verizon too...but at least it is possible I guess...

    FYI. This is hit or miss. At my house I have ALWAYS left notes saying to leave package at door signed and dated. I believe UPS still honors this (they actually leave sig only items without the note). But today I left a note for FedEx and I happen to be near the door when they came. I came out signed and removed the note taped to the mailbox. The driver said that he would not have left the package and they don't do that anymore. Don't know if he was just inexperienced or not the normal driver in my area but either way he wasn't going to leave my package.
    Thats weird, check this out: Signature Proof of Delivery Support | FedEx Customer Support

    For those of you who ordered straight from ATT, what does your order page look like? Does it list the phone as backordered? Do you have a delivery date?

    That only says they can leave it if no signiture is required or indirect signiture is required. If he shipper required direct signiture then it cant be left.

    A buddy of mine and I preordered ours at the same time. Maybe a minute or so apart and his shows delivery the 21st ad mine the 26th. I think that's kind of silly.

    Order through Apple via the Apple Store app within a few minutes after being available for pre-order, overnight my status changed to "preparing for shipment" with delivery still stating 9/21

    Probably. Apple sold a ton of them... the 9/21 delivery date was sold out at Apple within the first hour.

    Last year Verizon shipped my 4S through UPS and I was able to sign electronically for it by signing up for their MyUPS service, driver left it at the door with no questions asked. Since I work a few blocks from home I just checked the delivery status and once it changed to delivered I went and grabbed it.

    Anyone else getting this message when the check from the link in the confirmation email? "Please check the information you have entered. Data may be missing or may have entered an invalid Pre-Order Number or Last Name." I've entered it several times so I know it's correct. Yesterday it said my order was received and is processing, and when I check using the preorder link, I still get the received and processing status.
    It sounds like you're talking about the Verizon site? Try entering the number and then your last name all in caps. This has been working some of the time. If that doesn't work, you can use this link to access the preorder status site: https://preorder.verizonwireless.com...cSearchInit.do

    I think about half the time I've had a phone shipped from Verizon I was home and the other half I was not. When I was not home it was sitting on the back deck. I live out of town, but not really out in the sticks and it's always been FedEx. I do not recall ever signing for one either.

    I hope they deliver it early Friday morning. I have classes from 1130-1530, and then work from 1600-0100.
    The last thing I ordered from Apple, a MacBook, came via UPS; hopefully it'll be UPS again, so that I will be able to use live tracking like I did previously.
