    Apparently you can check on UPS and some people have been getting tracking numbers that way. Go to track by reference which can be accessed by clicking on tracking at the top of the page. Then type in your sprint account number where it says shipment reference. Some people just do that. Others have added country and zip.

    Other carriers and apple are coming up with the phone number you used as a reference when you ordered, but sprint seems to need your sprint account number.

    Mine is not showing this way either.

    I guess I ordered early enough to be in the first shipment! I am curious, for those of us that have received tracking number, it looks like we all ordered directly from Apple; maybe ours are already shipped because they are coming from China. Maybe AT&T, Verizon and Sprint already have theirs in inventory, so those are already here in the states and don't have to be shipped today. Any chance that is correct?
    I doubt the carriers hold any 4S inventory right now. New generation iPhones are so valuable, I'm betting the shipments are being guarded as carefully as gold bullion. Inventory for carriers and other outlets are probably packed and ready for next day shipping in multiple Apple warehouses across the planet.

    I put in the phone number for my order into the ups site. Both of my phones were shipped from Hong Kong today.

    I can't get any info from UPS or Verizon, either. I know it's not a big deal but I want my phone on Friday! That way I have the weekend to play with it.

    I checked my order status through Sprint | Check Your Order Status. I haven't gotten a tracking email yet, but 1 of the 2 phones I ordered has been assigned a tracking number. Shows as being shipped today (10/10/11), and shipping is 2nd day air!? Maybe I'll get them Wednesday night!

    Ordered from Apple around 11am EST on Friday and it still says that the shipment is being processed. But it still states that it will be delivered by the 14th. It better! LOL!

    Pre-ordered in the UK, a 16GB black for me and one for a friend. Currently showing as "Processing" and expected to ship before the 14th.
    (Last year for iPhone 4 the shipping came from a UK distributor. I would expect the same)

    Anyone on VZW seeing anything other than "We received your order and it is in process. Expected Ship Date: 10/14/2011"

    I'm so anxious... lol

    No. That is what mine is saying as well. I'm really hoping the expected ship date is actually the expected delivery date. It makes me a little more comfortable to know other Verizon folks are seeing the same thing. When did you order?

    I ordered on Fri, Oct 7, 2011 at 2:08 AM. I contacted Verizon and they seemed to say that everything was fine with my order, that they charge the CC when the order ships, and that it will arrive by Fri, 14th.

    A majority of us will probably see/get tracking numbers by tomorrow.

    I ordered a little after you did and it still says processing. I'm checking like every 30 minutes to see if it changes to preparing for shipping. At least it still says delivery is scheduled for the 14th.

    Mine are all in "Preparing for shipment" status.

    My 3rd order was done around 5pm for a 32gb and is in the same status as the two 64gb I ordered (one at 5am and other at 7am).

    One of my boys ordered around 5am with me on the apple site and has his processing.

    Well, that's awesome!! I ordered mine around 3 PM so I was worried it got bumped but when I was checking out and in the email I received from Verizon, it says delivery by 10-14. I feel a lot better, now. Especially since you ordered yours right away and I waited a little while for mine.

    Ordered a White 32G for the wife.
    Black 32G for me from Verizon.

    Their tracking says it will ship on 10/14. I hope they have that wrong and it arrives on 10/14 like it said when I ordered it!!!

    Has anyone who ordered thought AT&T received a tracking number. I order around 3:45 am eastern and it's just saying processing. I'm thinking that AT&T has them in stock in there warehouses and they will begin updating shipping later today or tomorrow.

    Same thing for me. I purchased the iPhone 4 from VZW and got it a day early so I'm not too worried.

    glad to know we are all in the same boat.

    this is my first experience pre-ordering anything, so I am just not really sure what to expect or what is "normal"

    I had our Account Manager order 3 iPhone 4S's. 2 16GB Black and 1 32GB Black. All orders had email to me at 9am PST. Bottom of the email says ship on the 14th. I just emailied business order support and they said system showing right now that my phones wont get to me until the 21st!!! What?????? I have sent an email to my account manager and his boss and requested a callback from order support manager cause my email says the 14th.


    I am super pissed. Unless there computer systems have made a mistake I guess I will be at the Verizon store on Friday morning.
