    I'm having some worries, hopefully someone can clear this up for me and have me not worry.

    I pre-ordered the 4S through the VZW website on 10/7 at around 3AM or so. It is now 10/11, and I have no activity on my Chase account taking out the $217.74 for the order. Yet, the phone says it is to be shipped 10/14 still when I check my order status.

    Should I be worried that I perhaps accidentally entered in a strangers credit card # when I placed the order, or will I not see any bank activity until the phone is actually verified as shipped?

    I am calling Verizon/Chase today to hopefully resolve the situation, but I figured TiPB can help me out a bit.

    Wow, thanks for the quick response.

    My VZW Order Status reads

    We received your order and it is in process.
    Expected Ship Date: 10/14/2011


    since 10/7, that is standard at this point on the 11th, correct, or should it be further by now?

    Even if it did ship yesterday say, Apple has arrangements with the shippers to actually delay delivery until the 14th. Granted some may slip through the cracks but it's unlikely.

    Once you get a shipping confirmation with tracking number, you'll also see the charge posted to your credit card - and what you're seeing is not unusual.

    I guess Sprint handles things differently then.

    My question is how will the phone arrive on Fri via UPS if there is no tracking # yet. If it does not ship by the end of the day then I figure it will not be here by Fri.

    Overnight delivery, two day delivery, depends. I only order from Apple and if the date says delivery by the 14th, it will be there. I can't speak for Sprint or Verizon though.

    Ordered a white 64gb 4s from Verizon on 10/8 at around 10:30am. My checking account was charged at 10:20am today. Order status on Verizon says "Your pre-order will deliver by 10/21/2011" in the tracking # status section.

    So I just got home from school, checked to see the money was taken out of my bank account and the order status reads will be delivered by 10/14! (No Tracking # yet though).

    My thread has worked in mysterious ways .

    Alot of pre-orders are shipping between the 14th and 21st. Sadly. I think there are gonna be some unhappy guys who pre-ordered not receiving phones on the 14th.

    I called Verizon myself and they said no phones will be shipped until the 14th. As in, not leaving their warehouse until the 14. Anyone else feel as though they were wronged by this? They did originally say pre-orders would be shipped to be DELIVERED on the 14th, right? (Provided you ordered early enough, of course)

    Clearly, if they were not going to ship them until the 14, no one would be receiving them ON the 14, and therefore, they should have stated this. Not sent out emails saying "Will be shipped to ARRIVE on 10/14/2011."

    I ordered with VZW and they updated my status today saying order will be delivered by 14 OCT. No tracking number yet.

    I ordered from Apple.CA and the American express hasn't been charged yet, but available funds has dropped the $700.

    Personally, Im not expecting the phone to arrive(In Edmonton, AB) until around late next week. Say 19th.

    that's cuz it was just authorized for the amount, they won't post it to the account until the get a merchant slip from Apple, nobody would allow preorders to go through if the cards were declining a pre-authoriation, that'd be crazy

    Most of the Verizon reps, in my experience, have no clue what they're talking about. If it said you're getting yours on the 14th (assuming you ordered it early enough), it will arrive on the 14th. Ignore what the rep told you.

    Sprint puts the charge through, immediately, as soon as everything is verified with your order. They then apply it as a credit to your account, so your bill looks fantastic for a few days. Once the phone ships, the cost of the phone, taxes and fees are billed to your account and it balances back out.

    Sounds like because credit cards haven't been charged, tracking numbers aren't out yet. Everybody knows how long a ups or fed ex ground delivery takes. From 1 side of the country to the other side of the country is 4-5 days delivery time once it leaves the warehouse. Its safe to say alot of phones will not be received on the 14th. Unless all Iphone4S's are being shipped next day or 2 day air that seems to be the only way. I see alot of pissed off people in 3 days.

    Well Verizon charged my card today, still no tracking so I guess that isn't completely true. My guess is I will see tracking info tomorrow . . . but they still shouldn't be taking the funds unless it ships.

    One additional note, this is what my order info says.


    Here is the status of your order.

    Order Number: XXXX
    Tracking Number:

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

    Since they say deliver by 10/14/11 I expect to see tracking either tomorrow or worse case Verizon will hold orders to ship out overnight delivery and go out on Friday. Honestly don't get the big deal just let them fly.
