    The status on my order at apple changed to shipped but I didn't get an email. Also says shipped on 9/17 which was 3 days ago. Of course I knew that by checking ups site. But thus just shows how massive the backlog is around iPhone orders and updating everyone's status. I firmly believe if it says deliver by 9/21 you will get it then. As for carriers, that's another story. Good luck guys.
    I literally have the same story haha I know it's been mentioned on here before about signing for packages for fed-ex and ups, but I think fed-ex you only have to sign for and ups will leave the package there for you and don't have to sign; can anyone confirm this?

    I just received a text from Apple that my order has shipped and will deliver tomorrow. Of course, I already knew it from tracking it on UPS but it was exciting anyway!

    Apple is requiring an indirect signature for the delivery. Therefore, you must sign for UPS as well. However, since it is an INDIRECT signature you can print out a signature release form, sign it, tell UPS where you want the package delivered and tape it to your door. You don't have to actually be home for them to leave it as long as you sign the form ahead of delivery and leave it on your front door.

    Even though I've been tracking my order through UPS already, it was still nice waking up to this email from Apple this morning.

    Most likely not. Apple has placed a hold on the deliveries until tomorrow to make sure they do not get delivered ahead of release date.

    Also, SHIPPED date is different from DELIVERY date.

    I looked at my status on Apple's website and it says shipped and has a link to track it but still no email from them. Wonder when and if I will get one. I am just jealous of all the people on here saying they will get theirs by 10:30. I so wish that is what mine said. I wonder why some say 3:00 and some say 10:30. Hmmmm At least I know it will be here tomorrow!!

    I think the 10:30 deliveries are UPS and 3:00 is FedEx. I think Apple and AT&T are using UPS and I know VZW is FedEx.

    Recieved the email and text from Apple that the phone's were shipped out. Website now has "Shipped" with a tracking button. No change on the UPS info now since it left Addison, IL at 6pm on the 17th.
    Still says 21st for shipping. Wife's phone, which was ordered through Apple at the same time has the same info, but appears to still be in Louisville, KY.

    I received my email from Apple at 0608 PDT this morning. The scheduled delivery still says "Friday, 09/21/2012, by 3:00 P.M. (by end of day for residential deliveries)".

    My package is in Louisville, but that's not a worry. I routinely receive items "next day" from New York to Seattle. UPS moves 15 million packages per day, so I'm sure our iPhones will be fine.

    I live in a marine industrial area, so I imagine my UPS man will have no trouble with a few one pound packages. Usually he delivers iAnchors and iEngineParts.

    This is funny. Now we are worried about a 10:30 arrival vs a 3:00 arrival.

    In the world of shipping, internet and satellite installs, 10:30 means 3:00 and 3:00 means 7:30pm..... especially on iPhone day.

    The only way you will for sure get a package before 10:30 is if you paid for that.

    I suspect he is a HUGE fan of iPhone day then.

    I'm sure this has been discussed somewhere in here but would I be able to leave a note for FedEx and have them leave the box at the door? I'm not going to be home tomorrow and would hate to have to wait until Monday. Torture!

    You can find a release form on the FedEx website so you can sign it and tell them where to leave it.

    This is sooooooooo true! My 4s didn't arrive until 7pm last year on release day, when it said delivery by 3 from UPS. Poor guy still had many phones in his truck to deliver.
