    Mine still says "Processing Items" with a delivery of Oct 14th. I ordered a 16gb black 4s on Oct 7 through apple. Starting to get annoyed...

    Still sitting here:

    Here is the status of your Pre-order:
    We received your order and it is in process.
    Expected Ship Date: 10/14/2011

    Anyone else ordered from VZW have a better status?
    pre ordered 1pm Friday afternoon EST
    I have the same status. Ordered a 32GB Black iPhone 4S at 10:15AM Friday morning.

    Don't worry, they'll get the tracking numbers tonight and tomorrow.

    Update on my 32gb black Sprint iPhone from apple.com. I called them about it being stuck on preparing for shipment for several days. After staying on hold for a fair amount of time, I was assured that there will be no problem getting it on-time (Friday) as they believed my phone was in or near the metro area where I live. She indicated that Apple is having a data entry crunch getting everyone's tracking in, and wouldn't be surprised if people get their phones before seeing a tracking number on apple.com. Thought I'd share, for what it's worth. YMMV.

    I just spoke to a LIVE person at premier, and the wait was only 15 minutes! Thats amazing. Over the course of the past few days Ive waited for 2 hours only to be disconnected.

    I got good news! She told me my order was good, and I should receive my tracking info today. She assured me that I should get my phone Friday.

    If your order (from ATT) still shows backordered, you may be out of luck for Friday. They have updated the backordered status' to processing for the phones shipping by Friday.

    So while waiting on hold with Apple. I thought, let me try the UPS reference trick again, which previously had only shown one phone shipped. Well low and behold there are two packages now!!!!!
    My 16GB was in Kentucky last and finally my 64GB left China at 4:50am EST. The stupid thing is the Apple order status for my 64GB still says preparing for shipment. No confirmation email yet. I think I can breath a little easier now. . Maybe not till it's safe at home!

    My order went through at 8:13am.
    My confirmation email came at 617am EST. Not to far off from yours. You can call premier at 1-866-499-8008. Listen to the prompts and select to check on current order. You can check by order number OR phone number. You will here something like "Your order has processed and will ship shortly" (thats what it says for mine". THEN...press 0 to speak to a live person for further confirmation if you like. I did, it made me feel a little better.

    Good Luck!

    instead of using the tracking number because you may not have one yet. Use UPS track by Refrence Number, enter your phone number or order number and your other info and you may find that you are already in the system even if apple hasnt updated you to show that.

    Go to the UPS page and under the tracking box select more options, Track by reference. Reference number is the phone number in your iTunes account. You can find by looking at account info in iTunes. Put in the destination country and zip and if it's shipped you should get something.

    I actually did call that yesterday around 4:30pm, didn't press 0 though. I got the same message as you, followed by "Your device is activated" or something like that. You hear that too?

    I got my tracking number!!! As I posted before, I ordered on 10/8 for the 32GB 4S White from att.com and I have a UPS Tracking #. The service they used...............UPS NEXT DAY AIR!

    I will update later tonight if it actually moves today or if it goes on the truck tomorrow meaning 10/14 delivery.

    Either way somehow even with their website showing ships in 14-21 days, I will have my iPhone 4S for launch!!!!!!!!!!!

    Anyways, congrats.
