    I work in ATC... Memphis Tower delivers takeoff clearance for both sides. I believe FEDEX has their own ramp control, but once the aircraft is on a movement area (taxiway or runway), then they are under FAA control via Memphis Tower.

    Checked out KMEM weather.. looks pretty decent tonight. However, where they are going is another story.
    Good to know, all i knew was from videos a friend of mind that works up here in kcmh showed me of Memphis ops.

    I just looked at Credit Card which I used to pay, funds are on hold till January 7th. I have got order confirmations but no shipping information. I guess I wont be as luck as others!
    I called Customer Service, they said my order has been completely processed, and that I should receive a e-mail confirmation wiht a tracking number shortly. (so you know, when I called the 611 number it showed I had not placed a upgrade order).
    Hopefully will get something today and get phone monday or Tuesday!

    That would be my guess. They did this pre-order for current customers to not get hit so hard in one day. On the 10th the numbers will probably be big again for orders so they don't get overwhelmed at once. They are probably trying to get every delivered asap so they can keep up.
    Also hopefully they learn from the current customer pre-order and will be ready for open availability on the 9th/10th. Thus far i'm not impressed in their handling of it,between inability to check on orders due to crashing that tool, to inconsistent reports of people getting emails. To the attitude customer service is giving when you call in even for non iphone related things.

    I now have another page to obsessively refresh all day...I too will see if I can pick mine up tomorrow if it makes it here...I believe it is being held though. It doesn't state where mine is yet....just says it will be delivered Monday...or is scheduled to be delivered then. Kudos to Verizon for getting them to us before the 10th...pretty happy with my transaction...guess I have a farewell weekend with my Curve...
    I was too hoping I would be able to pick up tomorrow I keep watching my tracking.

    the expectations game....

    My expectation was delivery next wed, feb 10th. Reality: Fedex will deliver monday by 3pm. My expectation was wrong, and i'm quite pleased by that.

    I see others who expected delivery as soon as today, who've found out they'll get delivery monday, and they're disappointed because it's not today.

    At any rate - i'm pleased the delivery ambiguity is gone - and will be more pleased on monday when my new toy is all set up, and working.
    exactly!

    Ordered at 7:00 am, received confirmation email within an hour, now received a "being processed" email last night at 9:30. Still no tracking information, no charges have been placed against my card either. I am not happy! Called VZW and dumbass rep said no phones would "ship" until the 10th. I said individuals have tracking information in hand of phones being shipped today and he didn't know what to say. How can an organizational and its employees be that far in the dark?????

    I am happy for those who have received the shipping information and are getting their phone on Monday. Just very, very, very jealous.

    Just checked my order, says shipped by FedEx with tracking Number to be delivered Monday the 7th, can't wait, sooner than I thought. Also read per-orders are sold out, not letting anyone pre-order at this time. Good Luck to you all and looks like most will be happy Monday, can celebrate two things Monday, my new IPhone and the Steelers 7th SB ring!

    courier: MC6

    ^^^ It doesn't look good for you.

    Someone on another forum had this to say:

    Official iPhone and Verizon Wireless thread - keep all discussion here!

    Bad news for those who have MC6 as your courier.

    You'll notice you get an IP looking address... go to What Is My IP Address - Shows Your IP Address

    If it matches, then that means Verizon has canceled your preorder and passed it on to the next available preorder.

    I was told this by 3 different reps on the phone, and it could be, declined credit/debit card, or not eligible rate plan. MC6 is just a code for Mora Canceled reason 6

    This whole pre-order thing if obviously a huge deal and a huge milestone for VZW, as far as the order check tool goes, you have to think, websites can only handle so much traffic, for one, they probably have a few thousand if not a few hundred thousand checking order status' at any given time. so yes it will crash if they didn't take it down themselvs.

    as far as the emails go, same deal, they can only process so many orders and so many emails.

    customer service should be polite no matter what, but im sure the shear amount of phone calls iPhone and non-iPhone related calls were insane yesterday and that would take a toll on ANYONE! i for one would not want to take thousands of phone calls from people asking about their new iPhone

    On the Fedex tracking site it says that Indirect signature required. and I click the question mark next to it and it says that neighbors, and basically anyone can sign for it. Or you can have an official Fedex form thing you can leave on the door to tell them to still leave the iPhone.

    I had this message as well. I got and email saying my credit card was declined but I got a Verizon email saying it was 'on hold' because of this. Called the number, re-ran the card and she said it is all good and I should expect the iPhone by the 10th.

    What was your order number? Did you order any accessories? I am thinking ordering a case with it the iPhone when I pre orderd around the same time you did that its going to go against me. Verizon couldn't even tell me if the case was in stock. Has your credit card been charged? Mine has not which leads me to believe that it has not been shipped.
