    It's funny, I don't think I've ever signed for one. I think they just got left at the door (they rang bell and walked away before I actually opened the door). Maybe they saw me eagerly watching out the window...

    No kidding Gary, they are always in a big Hurry!

    That is encouraging. I have been waiting for my iPhone to ship and it just says that it is being prepared for shipping. Now my 3gs just stopped taking a charge. I think the doc connector is messed up, now I have 20% battery until my new phone arrives.

    I ordered a 16 GB and 64 GB iPhone 4s for AT&T via Apple.com on Friday morning (ordered separately) at 7:45 am Detroit, MI time.

    Both have shipped and made their way to UPS in Kentucky as of 9:28 am this morning. We'll see how long that take to get to Detroit.

    Practically, most other items would be here Wednesday morning. But Apple may be asking them to hold off. Although, since they seem to be arriving in Germany today, maybe that won't be a big deal. I've seen them (appear) to be held back in a similar timeline, but still show up the evening before the release date.

    UPS came to my door for something else today and I got WAY excited...

    Gary

    You live in Detroit and your package is at Kentucky?
    I live in Chicago and my package is at Louisville, KY since 9:28am. What is there at Louisville, KY?
    UPS could've run one more trip if it arrived at 9:28am. Why my package lying it at nowhere?!?!!

    AT&T ordered at 4:18 est confirmation email sent at 8:24 am. Website still says "in progress" and "shipment pending". So sick of refreshing. I
    Hope tomorrow we get our package/shipping info.

    So if I call UPS will they hold it at the branch fore to pick it up? UPS comes spa radically where I am could be 845 am could be 345 pm. If I wanted to waste a whole day I would have gone to apple store and wait in line on Friday.

    Finally was able to get into the Verizon "Check your Order Status" and says "Status: Your pre-order will deliver by 10/14/2011". So that is a good sign. No tracking # yet thought.

    For some reason the link to the "Check your Order Status" in the original order confirmation email went bad so I had to go in a back way.

    Anyone who ordered through AT&T premier get shipping info? Mine is still in the pre-order stage and hasn't been updated since the 7th. Also, the charge for the phone disappeared from my bank account. I'm worried.

    Don't worry about the charge dropping off, that was a temporary hold. Happened to me too and mine just shipped (well, 12 hours ago in China but I just found out). My credit card doesn't show a charge, but maybe they don't update their info as well as UPS.

    Have faith.

    ordered my white 32g iphone through apple.com
    reserved it about 2 am pacific time (California)
    finished the order through apple about noon same day
    as of 9:55 local time apple.com still says "preparing for shipment"
    been trying the ups trick until 8ish pm and no result
    i dont know when it came up but at 9:30pm the 11th i used the reference search by ups and a tracking info came up.
    this is what it says so far
    Shenzhen, China 10/12/2011 3:33 A.M. Origin Scan
    China 10/12/2011 11:37 P.M. Order Processed: Ready for UPS

    for those who dont know the ups trick here's how:
    go to ups website. on top select tracking. then it will take you to a tracking page. on the side select track by reference. for the reference my shipment has 6 different alpha numeric reference numbers so far i have no idea what 4 of them are but for sure one of them is my phone number and the other one is the order number given by apple but it doesnt include the last 2 digit (too close to be coincidence)...

    My order is still processing, but I ordered it fairly late in the day 6ish from Apple. After first trying to order through att.com, but not seeing a Applecare+ option, then going into a ATT store in person, where they told me I wouldn't be able to get Spplecare+ through them, then the NYC flagship Apple store where I realized that I couldn't place a pre-order in person, and couldn't place a pre-order for pick-up, then back home to order from Apple.com... My Applecare+ is listed as completed, and the Bumper they threw in for free after some billing issues arrives tomorrow. I just hope the phone arrives Friday because I'm having it delivered to work!

    I bought a white 16 GB 4S for my wife from AT&T. The ETA is 21 to 28 days from the purchase based on availability. So, we will see when it gets home. I got a tracking page, but I checked and it has not shipped yet.

    Ordered my AT&T iPhone from Apple Friday morning. The order status has been "Prepairing for Shipping for the last few days."

    Just received an email from AT&T...

    "Thank you for choosing AT&T and iPhone!


    You can access your Customer Service Summary (CSS) for your iPhone account at any time by clicking here or by visiting att.com and logging into your wireless account.* "

    I wonder if this means progress and pending shipment, or anything at all.

    Any one else receive an email like this?
