    My status on Apple.com STILL says "Processing Items". Delivery date still say Oct. 14th.

    I ordered a Verizon 4S through Apple. Does anyone else have this same status?

    Hearing that so many others have shipped and mine is still processing is causing a little bit of doubt as to whether I will actually receive it on Friday.
    I am still in 'Order is recieved and preparing for something or another' as of this morning 9AM EST...

    I ordered through VZW website. Hoping for ONE day early, so I can have it up and running this weekend and have all my account transferring shenanigans handled through my IT dept.

    I would not panic about getting it on time though, I would assume its gonna come on time, or else we'd be hearing rumblings by now.

    Sprint still has mine at the facility. Anyone else have 2nd Day Air through UPS? If so, what does your status say?

    Mine says Preparing for Shipment on the Apple website but if you use the trick and go to UPS.com and go to tracking then track by reference and enter your phone number as shipment reference and then country and your zip. It will give you your tracking number. Mine is currently at Chek Lap Kok, Hong Kong, Tuesday, 10/11/2011 still on time for delviery by 10/14. Mine shipped from China at 2:16 this morning and arrived in Hong Kong at 8:50 pm 10/11.

    Could someone please tell me what UPS shows as the shipping weight of your package? I'm trying to tell if there's 1 phone in the box or 2.

    I have heard nothing from Verizon. Actually my status went form delivered on 14th to ship on 14th. I ordered mine Friday morning. Not looking good for me, but was wondering what other VZW customers are hearing!

    Mine is still stuck on "preparing for shipping"
    My 16GB shipped, but my 64GB has been preparing for shipment for a couple of days now. Ordered both phones Friday morning about 6:30am from Apple. I'm also a little nervous. You'd think it would have shipped by now to make it that distance by Friday. Or is there simply a glitch in the Apple system that hasn't updated some of the orders, but they actually shipped?

    I am receiving a 16GB phone and my UPS has .40kg for the weight.

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks for the tip - this worked for me. Mine was saying Preparing for Shipment on the apple website but at UPS, it shows Chek Lap Kok, Hong Kong just like yours. I ordered an AT&T 64gb 4S via the Apple website Friday morning.

    I did the exact same thing. The 16gb (for my father) showed shipping but the 64gb was Preparing for Shipment. Just go to UPS directly and type in your phone number under "Reference Number" and it should give you a tracking number and show that it is in Hong Kong ready to go...

    VZW status has not changed since I placed the order.

    I'd say that I have checked the website approximately 25 times per day since I placed my order...

    Both have a tracking # since yesterday but UPS still has not got a hold o shipment....seems like they are holding onto the shipments...Its scheduled for 2 day air so my guess is they will release it Tomorrow for delivery for Friday. I was really hoping to get it early!

    Yeah I tried that with my phone number which is connected with the 64GB. And it gave me the same tracking number for the 16GB. Then I tried the phone number for the 16GB and there was no info. :-(

    I still have not received an e-mail with tracking info, and when I go to apples website it still says my item is preparing for shipping. This really has me upset because yesterday I called apple and they said it was shipping from over seas. If that's the case, and my item hasn't shipped yet, then there's no way its gonna be here by Friday. Does apple not notify its been shipped, sometimes? Guess I'm just hoping here but I really want it Friday

    I got my shipping thing from Apple at like 2am shipping from China. If they're saying itll be there the 14th they will ship it a faster way probably.

    My status is still "Processing Items" and I am a bit concerned about getting it on Friday as posted. However, I've ordered lots of stuff from Apple over the years that came from overseas and their website had not updated for days, and then it seems in one day it goes from China, to Alaska, to me. With a million pre-orders, the Apple site may be behind in status updates.

    At least that what I'm hoping!

    Ordered mine through the VZW website at 3:15am on the 7th. I check the status of my order and it still says processing and my bank account hasn't been debited yet.

    Has anyone ever re-routed a shippment before through UPS (I guess that is who VZW uses). When I ordered mine, there was a glich in the VZW website. It wouldn't let me go past the shipping address page because I selected the "ship to work" option but there was no where on the page to put the name of my work. It wouldn't let me go to the next page until I gave them the name of my work. So I had to have it shipped to my home.

    I am hoping to get the tracking and try to get it rerouted to my work address.
