    it was "charged" to my card, but it's still pending... I got a text within a minute of finalizing the transaction saying my CC was used blablabla... will continue refreshing forum, email, and virtual wallet hoping to see a change... :-\

    OK, thanks for the help with the chat button. I guess Apple doesn't know right from left...

    All right then... I tried chatting but the guy was a sales guy and said I had to call customer service. So I did. Here's what I was told:
    - All of these phones, shipping from Verizon or Apple are going to deliver the same day
    - Apple and Verizon have coordinated w/ shippers to make it so
    - UPS and Fed Ex may have been instructed to hold the shipments so they won't be delivered until the 9th or 10th.
    - Apple's shipments are in the US, and they have warehouses all around the country
    - For launches like this they pretty much ship 24/7 so shipment status and tracking information could be updated at any time.

    I really don't believe the part about all being delivered on the 9th or 10th. Seems like all of those Verizon tracking numbers are legitimately going to be delivered Monday. I've got my fingers crossed for shipment status to be updated overnight. I still haven't seen the charge on my credit card - just the authorization.

    I think they will eventually hold up the shipments for delivery on 9th or 10th. I bet verizon starts changing their notifications to its being held, etc. my 2 cents.

I will not believe or get cought in the hype that those ppl that pre ordered from vzw are gonna get the phone early until some posts a pic

    Here's a fun way to kill time until your phone arrives. My phone would travel 11,361 miles and take 149 days 22 Hours if delivered on foot/kayak!

    I got both shipping confirmations as well! Departure scan from China 2/5 2:45pm, scheduled for delivery Tuesday by 10:30am. So much for the information that 1) they are all in the states and 2) they will all be delivered the same day. But I'll take Tuesday over Thursday!
