    I live in the eastern time zone. I did not ask specifically, however the context of the conversation was using eastern time. Has your credit Caedmon been charged yet, this may be a good indicator

    Mine still shows processing at Apple. But also still shows delivery on the 14th so we'll see. Considering how screwed up the ordering process was it wouldn't surprise me in the least if the shipping was screwed up too.

    Ok I am highly confused now. I ordered through AT&T (White 16gb) in store. When I pre-ordered they ran my card, putting a hold on the charge until the phone was shipped, all that jazz. But I go to check my bank account now, and the 200 dollars is now back on my card, and no mention of any kind of refund or anything from AT&T. The phone order does not say cancelled, and does not say shipped. What the heck?!

    3:08 am? What makes you think that you aren't getting your phone release date. Verizon receives their phones FROM Apple, so thus their stock pile of phones are in America. Apple just ships it out from whatever warehouse to your home. So that's why Apple customers have gotten tracking numbers because it takes time to get phone from China or wherever. Verizon will probably ship it to you tomorrow or maybe Thursday as it doesn't take 4-5 days to deliver when it's in the country already. Just relax, like another guy mentioned you'll get the iPhone release date if you ordered before 6 PM so you're fine.
    You are correct, they are in the US. Our company is the shipping center for Verizon on the East Coast, so they are sitting in West Chester, PA right now.

    I just got nervous because some of the recent threads on this board were saying that Verizon reps told them that any VZW iPhones weren't shipping until the 14th, which meant delivery wouldn't happen until Saturday or early next week. I know that even if that was true (which it doesn't sound like it is after that guy's posting about the 6pm cutoff), it would only be an extra day or few days, but still!

    LOL at our first world problems...

    I've been trying to check the status of my order but it looks like the verizon order status site is down. Odd...

    Says in my confirmation email "Deliver by 10/14" though so I'm hoping for Friday or Saturday.

    I ordered a 32gb White 4S on the 7th around 10pm.

    I ordered mine at a reasonable hour on Friday morning (VZW on line) and received the temporary hold on my card, confirmation email on Friday, etc. Because of the elapsed time, the hold on my card was released but It was finally debited from my account today. My guess is that until you see the actual charge - your order isnt ready for shipping. My status check now says :

    Tracking Number:
    Courier :
    Status: Your pre-order will deliver by 10/14/2011
    Ship Date:

    Thats all the info I have but the status has changed since I checked it this morning & since my card has actually been charged . . . I'm assuming that mine is probably ready for shipment & it says DELIVERED BY 10/14/2011 . . .

    I placed my order through Apple; White 16GB 4S for Sprint and it says "Preparing for Shipment" however, none of the tricks work for me... I've tried absolutely EVERYTHING. Phone numbers, order numbers and nothing seems to work. Anyone who ordered a 16GB White for Sprint through Apple been able to get this trick to work?
    open itunes, go to "my account" see what phone number they have listed, Search UPS with that info

    Also for people that purchased from Apple you can pre-sign for it and place it on your door and UPS will leave it at the door for you and you don't have to be there. I just got my shipment notification and next to the track shipment button it says Pre-Sign for Delivery. Also it says Delivery by Oct 14 so maybe will get a little early!!

    I purchased from Verizon and my confirmation email says "Deliver by 10/14" but I haven't heard anything else. No email, when I check my status it still says preparing, and I haven't been charged. Welp, looks like I'm probably not getting it this weekend.

    LISTEN TO ME AND I WILL GIVE YOU THE SCOOP ON THE SHIPPING

    Ok so if I've learned anything by reading this thread you people will soon love logistics like I've learned to love it since I've been working with Big Brown in 1998...

    Apple is a large customer of ours. We are alerted via email through our chain of command whenever there is a "big launch." Of course, we're not told what the launch is but if anyone is paying attention to anything Apple we know. A week ago we received an email that we should prepare for 800,000 deliveries on the east coast for Friday 10/14/2011, which is 800,000 above the standard operating plan that was initiated last month.

    Your stuff will get there, aside from if someone makes a mistake here or there. It is a heavily monitored shipment. This rollout is bird-dogged by some top dogs.

    If you shipped it to your home and you are not home to sign, you are out of luck. These packages will require a signature upon delivery IN PERSON. No exceptions! The shipper requires us to do this. The only way we can actually leave the package is if we forge the signature. No one is going to throw away a career over that one, so sorry.

    If you're not going to be home... like maybe you have a job, you should send it there. Otherwise be prepared to play hide-and-seek with your UPS guy. You can also register for that new service we offer called My Choice. www DOT ups DOT com SLASH mychoice ... sorry about that but the forum does not allow me to post a link yet because I'm "too new."

    I'm sure the shipments will go through the 2DAY AIR system to process the shipments during the daytime and to avoid the critical overnight shift. I'm all but positive that this will work out fine. I have worked there for 13 years now and I believe in the system.

    Now... can someone PM me so they can do "the trick" and get me my tracking number? I changed my shipping address via the phone center about 10 hours after I ordered my phone because I will be away on vacation. I want to verify they actually changed the address. Thank you.
