    My iPhone 4S ordered from AT&T at about 4 AM Eastern on Friday is listed as shipped on AT&T's website. It was shipped via FedEx but the tracking number isn't showing information. I'm hoping it will come tomorrow, but I am guessing it will be Friday.
    That's cool. But, there's no need for extra Threads. There is the Sticky Thread on this.

    My package still at Louisville, KY, United States since 9:28am yesterday.
    How often do they update tracking history?
    How does it work?

    Got my tracking number at 5:41am EDT via an e-mail from VZW. I keep checking the UPS site, but it doesn't seem to be in their system yet.
    The e-mail says it shipped on 10/11/2011.

    My order on Apple.com is still listed as "Processing Items" with standard delivery on 10.14.

    Ok, it's Wednesday and now I'm really getting concerned. I've been told that many iPhones are already located in the US, but even with that, it's now 2 days away.

    I'm just wondering.

    I ordered a Verizon 16gig White from Apple.

    my thought is to use the fedex option to hold at store. That way maybe I can pick it up on thursday if it gets to location by then rather then wait for it on friday. What do you think.

    My ship date status has shifted back and forth like other folks and is now on 10/21 as of this morning. Another weird happening is that my bank account showed VZW debitting it last night, but this morning there is no sign of a charge. I placed my preorder within the 1st half hour it was available last Friday!

    Same exact thing as me, except mine is black. Hopefully they are sitting in the US somewhere and they will still make it. If not I am going to be very upset.

    Here is my nightmare of an ordering story (that hopefully will have a happy ending). I got up at 300am EST to order online. Of course the sites were sown so I had to try numerous times. I got thru on Apple, but it said my card was DECLINED I then had to wait until my bank opened to find out what the heck was going on. My bank saw I was making a $300 purchase from apple.com at an odd time for my spending patterns and stopped the card. I got the hold taken off (cant be but so made at them for trying to protect my money) and was able to order via AT&T website. All seemed good as I got an email from premier estimating my delivery date as 10/14. Then the money came out so I was happy. THEN MADNESS My order status changed to backorder and I got a new email with the wrong address on it. It took hours and hours of waiting via AT&T and Premier to get the address stuff straight, but the backorder status concerned me. Depeneding on who I talked to it meant diff things. THEN the money ws put BACK on my card My bank stated that AT&T didnt "charge" me but placed a hold, like a hotel does. After 3 days, when AT&T didnt charge, the bank released the funds. My order has at least progressed from backordered to processing, and the premier hotline automated line says my order has processed and will ship shortly, but my card still hasnt been charged.

    It was so much easier to order from Apple, as I did with my iphone 4. My entire AT&T order has me frantic. I am keep refreshing my email...hoping I get a shipping confirmation today. I sure would have less anxiety if I did.

    I really want to chat with Siri friday and ask them why AT&T sucks so much

    Jealous? lol...not at all. Skeptical? Absolutely...and bored.
    No one is jealous. But the internet version of "put up or shut up" is "without a video, it didn't happen". He offered to post a video to prove his story. We just called him on it.
    I am not new to the f'ing internet, I am very well aware of what that phrase means. I also don't believe no one is jealous that this kid might be first with the phone. As far as I am concerned, "skeptical" screams insecure and jealous that you might not be the first with something. Bored people don't need proof of something. Jealous people do.

    My guess is those phone are being held in Louisville until time to make delivery on Friday. If your city is normally a 2 day trip from Kentucky with UPS, you will seem movement today. If it only takes one day, you might not seem any change until tomorrow.

    I have had packages sitting in my cities UPS facility and not shipped until the day it was expected, even though it could have arrived in 2 days. If the shipper doesn't pay for 2 day shipping, you don't get it in two days.

    lol...if it helps you sleep at night to assume people are jealous then you knock yourself out kiddo!

    This must have struck a nerve with you though! Why does it have to be the f'ing internet? Why not just the regular internet?

    Don't get so worked up over it...high blood pressure is never good in the long term!

    I just checked my bank account, the hold on my card is gone. Does this mean they are getting ready to have it sent?

    I sure hope so.

    The tracking numbers are starting to come out though; I a subscribed to on of the tracking threads and my email notification is going off over and over. Had to cancel my subscription to that thread. HA! Still do not have mine though.

    Man, you guys do have some horror stories. And I assume most of them come from AT&T. But why would they send some via UPS, and some via FedEx?

    AT&T should offer everyone they screw over a discount/rebate on their iPhone purchase.

    I would be worried. Hell, I'm in the "processing for shipment stage" and I'm worried. It's still supposed to be delivered the 14th, but I'd imagine that it would have to ship at some point today to make that date, unless Apple plans to overnight the thing for some reason. I really don't know at this point.

    so waking up to no tracking #, and still saying "preparing for shipment" is pissing me off. The delivery date is still the 14th though and I'm in NJ so maybe their holding it in Kentucky, I damn hope so.

    I figured today and tomorrow most of you would get your tracking numbers/shipping notices. If I read correctly, it sounds like AT&T have been backup up updating their system when the phones actually shipped a few days ago. That could be the case with everyone else, too.

    I guess this is what happens when millions and millions of people are trying to do the same thing at once.

    I ordered through AT&T Premier and it still says processing, I expected an email saying it shipped because it's getting closer to the ship date but I have no information once so ever.

    Anyone else order Premier with the status: Processing
    Yep, 64gb black ordered through Premier very early on the the 7th - still says processing
