    Idk, I guess in the past, when people have pre-ordered, they were shipped from Memphis. Possibly an Apple warehouse? Don't shoot the messenger lol.
    Not shooting, just saying tho.

    FedEx and UPS have national overnight hubs in Tennessee. Phones will come fro Apple warehouses either in the US or China direct to the hubs in time to be sorted and start delivering 9/21... Verizon also has a customer direct fulfillment warehouse near the FedEx hub.
    Ahhh, that makes sense!

    Ok, I got some news. I called apple directly. The salesperson on the line guaranteed that I'll get it on Friday. Pretty cool of him in my opinion. Marty, if you're anywhere out there, you made a first time per-orderer a very happy guy today.(I usually camp out)

    That's where I had to pre-order from as my browser wouldnt open the site. But thanks for the tip, didn't think I'd ever have to use that all so much :o

    Probably will ship Monday or Tuesday and will be held back due to Apple not wanting them delivered until 9/21.

    Marty, the apple rep, told me that Tuesday would be the latest the iPhone 5 would ship. Then, they should arrive to Ur nearest FedEx or UPS location by Thursday,at the latest. They will be held at Ur local facility until Friday for release

    I have my order number and my order location (no idea what that is for) from Verizon but it doesnt appear on the "check your order status" page nor does it appear in this one: https://preorder.verizonwireless.com...cSearchInit.do

    Should I be worried? I did get an email confirming it tho...

    My status still says Processing Items. Should I freak out and call Apple and see when it is going to be delivered? Oh, wait, they already told me, right there on my order confirmation. You guys kill me!

    Ordered my Verizon 32g from the Apple Online Store and my order was timed at 2:10 AM Mountain. That would be one hour after Apple started taking orders. I tried to get on when they opened but could not get on the site. To my disappointment my conformation from Apple stated shipping in 2 weeks and a delivery date of Oct 5th. I was hoping for Sept. 21st.

    ...says the poster who made it all the way to page 17 of the shipping/tracking thread.

    unless I've missed someone saying otherwise, none of us who ordered from Verizon have anything beyond that. that's what mine says and I ordered around 3:10-3:15am EST.

    Human nature...can't stop watching the train wreck. I'll admit that I was the same way on my first preorder. But I've learned that if Apple says 9/21 that it will be 9/21. The only tracking info that concerns me is the "delivered" time, hoping that it's not too late for me to get it before going to work.

    How dare you dash the hopes and dreams of these fine people with a taste of reality.

    I ordered mine on the apple store site. This is a stupid question but somewhere on the apple site it says that you can pickup orders made online in a retail store.

    I doubt it but is it possible to speed up the in my hands date by opting to pick it up in a retail store?
    E.g. Ship date 2 weeks and Delivery date of October 5 but select pick up in store and get one on Sept. 21

    Grasping at straws here. LOL.

    Mine says same. Plus Verizon seems to be slow with updating their site with those things.

    I think people who pre order should get theirs first I mean staying up or waking up in middle of night to order should have a perk vs standing in line on launch day .. It also might push more people to pre order vs causing lines at stores

    people waiting in line wait for hours outside a store possibly in the cold and rain, with no gaurentee that they will get one. those of us who stay up all night or wake up to do so stay up sitting on our couch or in our beds, or sleep and set an alarm, make a few clicks, go back to bed and wait for delivery. both have perks. either way. we get it the same day, those of us who got in in time...no big deal.

    on another note, ordered from apple, status finally changed to preparing to ship. card has been charged, but still no confirmation email (not worried about that, just threw that in there so anyone else whos status might not yet be changed and hasnt recieved an comfirmation email doesnt worry)
