    A special tiny package for your micro sim. Or they might put the micro sim in the bigger box...

    It occurs to me that this will turn into a pity party thread once those of you get your iPhones on the 21st and ATT is still playing Angry Birds on mine.

    Has anyone in Canada been able to track their shipments? I've search by reference using UPS and FedEx (not sure who's delivering) and nothing. I'm not worried (yet) but would still like to see it online.

    Also does Apple typically ship with FedEx or UPS?

    Apple last year was all about UPS and it seems like that is still the case this year.

    thanks for this tip. I see one is coming thru Alaska and the other is in Illinois! Had me worried for a while there .
    If you ordered from Apple and have not heard anything regarding tracking info, try searching UPS Track by Reference Number, as has been reported. I couldn't find anything by Apple's order number, the cell number for the line being upgraded, the cell number for the primary on the account... but I looked again at my order confirmation email and saw that it had my work phone number listed... searched for that number and the tracking info popped up. So the bottom line is (1) don't panic and (2) try the phone number listed on your order as your contact phone number when searching by reference number.

    I ordered around 320ish thru Verizon (64 gb white and slate) and the status page says "we have received your order and it is in process" but it's said that since Friday. Starting to worry a little

    It wasn't an option for me. If it was it was well hidden because I looked for it I wonder if the option is based on your location/local Apple Store? How did you order?

    I also wasn't able to change my shipppng address. It automatically chose my billing address even though in my Apple account I have my work address listed as my default shipping address.
    I ordered via the Apple store app. I was tempted to do in store pickup when I saw the option but changed my mind.

    It's interesting that you say you didn't even see the option. That's weird. The option is there even now but it's greyed out probably because they aren't offering it anymore so close to release with 3-4 week delay now for preorders.

    As I recall, it wasn't an option on the Apple Store app in iOS... I certainly don't remember seeing it...

    I am in the same boat too, you are not alone. I just contacted Verizon via e-mail and got this response:

    "Thank you for contacting Verizon Wireless. Your pre-order for the iPhone 5 has been received and waiting to be processed. You should receive an email with your tracking information once the equipment ships. Based off of the time in which your order was submitted, the equipment should be delivered on 9/21/2012.

    Once the order has been completed we will process the payment of $xxx.xx. Any $0 charges you are seeing on your bank statement are pre-authorizational charges that the system 'tests' the card to make sure it is valid. You will see these pending charges fall off usually within 2-3 business days."

    Haven't got any tracking information from Apple yet... I checked the order page and it says "Preparing for Shipping" and delivers by 9/21...

    Checked UPS and the package is still in Louisville...

    Checked CC and I don't see the charge anywhere, not even in pending...

    I hope Apple provides some updates soon...
    Check your bank and see if Apple put a temporary authorization charge on your CC.

    Ordered Apple.com 12:15am PDT day of preorder... Order status showing STILL "Preparing for Shipment", with "Delivers 9/21".... but I'm losing hope... no shipping notification emails, no CC charge yet, no UPS reference search results (using both home/cell and work numbers)... tried FedEx Reference search, nothing there either....

    arrrrrggghhhhh

    My confirmation from Sprint says:

    Thank you for pre-ordering the 32G iPhone 5. You are one step closer to getting your phone. Keep an eye out for a shipping email with your tracking information. Your device will arrive on or around September 21. For questions, visit sprint.com/preorder.

    It said this from the gitgo last night.

    Apple Care is showing on backorder.
    Mine shows the same. Though I just logged on to my account online an have a new bill available for next month. It shows the $320 charge for my iPhone 5...shows the activation fee...the 2 year upgrade statement...list the iPhone 5 on my account. There's even a IMEI/MEID number showing...I still haven't received any shipping tracking information. Last year when I got the 4S around same time I already had gotten a tracking number. Oh well I'm confident I'll get mine Friday. I already sold my iPhone4S and temporarily using my moms previous phone...a blackberry 3G curve...yesterday I upgraded her line to a new iPhone 4S for $99 at apple store. Her first iPhone and she loves it. Omg! How I miss my iPhone/iOS....
