    I got the email yesterday with the magical news that my iphone would be arriving early. I could hardly have been more thrilled! However, my shipment status currently says that it departed Memphis at 3:30am. I live in NYC, and as of 8:57am, it does not say "Out for Delivery."

    What do you think? Is it coming today, or did Apple set me up to have my hopes & dreams crushed?

    I received the same email yesterday, but NO change , where youd think by now itd say Out For Delivery.

    The 2nd phone I ordered from AT&T, was not showing ANY updates till yesterday, where it said Memphis TN all day and night and then this morning at 7 it changed to Out for delivery,,,, Im thinking my 32GB will come in today , while my wifes 16GB(The one I got an email about 23rd delivery) probably wont make it in till tomorrow,,,,,

    You'll get it when you get it. No need to get bent out of shape.

    Normally I wouldn't be too upset, but I took the day off to receive the thing. That in and of itself isn't a big deal, I get decent vaca time and wanted to have time to set it up and such, but if it doesn't come when they said it was, I took the day off for no reason.

    I know how you feel, I took the day off of work today as well, since Apple emailed me specifically to let me know that it'd be here on the 23rd.

    Now my tracking information still says that it's on its way from Memphis, and there is no information about when it may arrive, even though it says it's on time and estimated to arrive before a half hour from now at 10:30am, so I doubt it.

    The title of this post makes me laugh. Lie to you? As if Apple set up some nefarious plot just to screw you out of a vacation day.

    Well I was being a bit sarcastic with it, but I'd prefer they hadn't told me it would be here a day early if they were not positive.

    Apple did not lie. I just got my phone, even thought the FedEx date still lists 6/24 on one of them. They are both not even listed as on the truck yet!

    That makes me feel better. Hopefully FedEx just hasn't updated their info yet.

    Mine shows to be in Lubbock, Tx At dest sort facility. Lubbock is about 100 miles from me. It's been there since 3:00am. I should say "out for delivery" by now. But, oh well, what can one do...

    It also show to be leaving Memphis at 3:30pm yesterday. It's not anywhere near a 12 hour flight to Lubbock and I'm sure it was on a plane since Lubbock has a large Fed Ex air field there. So, maybe things are getting scanned into their system in real time.

    Edit: Thanks cjvitek, makes me feel better.

    The last update I got on the phones was early this morning. One is still listed as having left Memphis TN, the other is listed as having arrived in the sorting facility. (I am in Texas)

    Mine shows as arriving in Atlanta around 3am and that's the last scan showing as of 10:20am

    When I got my iPad it didn't get to Atlanta until about 6 am and was out for delivery by 7:30am

    Not sure what's up, if it's not updated by 2 or 3 I may see if I can go pick it up. Like others I changed what day I'd be home this week because of yesterday's email.
