    So, do we (Sprint orders) know if we need to be home to sign for the UPS or if they will leave it at the door?

    I don't know. My girlfriend recently ordered a phone from Sprint and they just literally left it at the door. No knock or anything. It had been there for hours till she discovered it.

    I ordered from AT&T on 10/7 at around 8am Central. Hasn't shipped yet, so I'm guessing it won't be here tomorrow.

    It's a surprise for my wife, so it's a little easier to wait :P

    I've been with all the carriers over the years, and Sprint is the only one that doesn't make you sign for the delivery. Not sure if that will be different for these iPhone orders or not.

    My iPhone 4S just left Louisville. Hope it had a good time there - had to have seen all the sights during it's 2+ day visit.

    Mine just changes a few minutes before five so don't give up yet, I had. As long as they get it on the truck in the next few hours it'll make it. Priority overnight is extremely fast. I would love to see what Apple is spending on overnight shipping charges for pre-orders. It has to be astronomical. For the average consumer it would be around $90 or so. I imagine they get a pretty significant bulk discount but even at $50 a pop your looking at a ton of money.

    My shipment originated it in PA.

    I just finished a chat with the "premier" people at ATT Wireless:

    Brandi Stone: Mr. XXXXXI do apologize however your phone has been backordered and you will have to wait 21-28 days to receive your phone. I am very sorry. This is because the high volume of orders that was placed on the same day, it was based on a first come first serve basis. I completely understand how you may feel and once again I am truly sorry about this.

    you: if i go to the apple store on friday and purchase a phone can i cancel my backordered phone

    Brandi Stone: Mr. xxxxplease do not be upset, the only way you can cancel your order is to actually wait until it gets to your house and refuse the order. I am so sorry about that.

    you: i ordered my phone on 10/7 and got this email from att: Premier@premier.wireless.att-mail.com to xxxxxxx@gmail.com date Fri, Oct 7, 2011 at 6:47 AM subject AT&T Premier Order Received Images from this sender are always displayed.

    That sucks, I am glad I ordered through apple and not my wireless carrier. What is the return period for phones? You could go wait in line and then return that phone when the backordered phone comes in.

    I assume you live near Fort Worth. I do.

    My UPS tracking is indicating that my iPhone 4S "arrival scan" in Louisville, KY 9:30 this morning. That's as far as it has gotten unless UPS isn't updating properly.

    LOL, I'd be more comfortable if mine were mindlessly floating around Fort Worth, close to home instead of sitting in a dark corner of a KY warehouse.

    take a look at:



    I've always been able to go to the UPS location once they cannot properly make the delivery. I would just have to prove that it was indeed me (with a photo ID) and then sign for the package there.
    thats correct

    Probably just at the carousel getting her bags for the trip to Boston.
