    Don't believe it until you have a tracking number.

    Then, be highly suspicious.

    Suspect credit card fraud! How else would they know the exact amount?

    My credit card was just charged with the exact order amount as well. Is this real life?

    Same here, that status shows as shipped with no ship date or tracking number.

    CC still shows the charge as pending though. I'd guess that there is a huge pallate of iPhones sitting in each warehoue ready to go out the door and they won't get released to fedex until next week (though I hope I am wrong.)

    If they do process the charge though then they should be shipping it. I don't think it would be kosher to charge for a device and not ship it for a week (unless they are being delivered by Turtle!)

    I agree with taking a pesamistic approach here though. The system is not the usual VZW ordering system so it might work differently or it might be just plain wrong such as reporting one status level ahead of actual.

    TBH, I don't see WHY they couldn't ship the pre-orders sooner. No reason to wait from a technical perspective and getting the orders out sooner reduces stress on the shipping departmetn, carrier, and activations as the last thing they want is 1,000,000 activations on the 10th. It would be smart in my estimation to ship them.... but keep it quiet until they do.

    For you? No. For everyone else, sure. It seems I am a step, just one click ahead of everyone else because of my order number of 8, so there is a chance that when we get the number, I will get it 1st, tell you fine people I got it, and then there will be a mad dash of people. Look at how many threads I've started in the past 12 hours.

    You may just want to change your handle to "iPhone order #8."

    It might save you from typing it in every thread you post in

    The reason I do that is because I KNOW the questions will come:

    What order number were you?? I'm 711 so I hope mine ships soon too
    And on top of that, I'm showing off.

    FedEx may also have a "hold order" on delivery until 02/09 or 02/10... then again, who knows anything at this point...

    The same thing happened with the iPad last year. What happened is that the iPad "shipped", but all it did is go out to Fedex with a "hold for delivery" date. Technically the iPad shipped, but all it did is move from the warehouse to Fedex, who in turn held the iPad until the predetermined delivery date.

    Not saying this happened in this case... but it does look like the same thing is happening. I do hope its not the case.

    Same thing with mine. My order is 320, I think that's the second or third highest I've seen anyone post. Like someone else said though, who knows if these numbers are just randomly generated.

    I'm also concerned about tomorrow though if it does come. I have to go to another surgery consultation at 11am and it's like 45 minutes away, so I probably won't be home when FedEx gets here. I'm going to try leaving a note on the door and see if that works.

    And Kch, just wondering, but if our phones do come tomorrow, will you admit that highlife was actually right? If they don't come tomorrow or before the 10th, I'm prepared to admit that my instincts were wrong.
