    Uh.. Well.. One of the planes has turned off track.. Not quite sure why that happened. Hopefully all of our iPhones haven't been hijacked somewhere over Canada.

    For some real fun, find an online flight tracker and track your iPhone's flight from Anchorage to Louisville...

    Flight Finder*
    I can't thank you enough for sharing the flight tracker suggestion! If I'm looking at this correctly, there were 4 flights in 30 minutes that left Anchorage for Louisville, and six UPS flights are currently in the air on that route. The Louisville airport will be very busy early Wednesday morning, from 12:45am to 1:30 EDT.

    Here's wishing safe and speedy travels and transfers for all of our new iphones!

    I'm with Verizon. I thought I had to plug into iTunes in order to activate?? I'd be psyched if I could do it at work tomorrow.
    I switched over from AT&T to Verizon last year. When I received the iphone 5, I just turned it on and it started working in a few minutes. Plus, my number ported automatically and my AT&T phone stopped working. It was so easy it was almost confusing. I thought I probably had to do something else!

    My 5s is currently on its way from Alaska so we will see if it is the same tomorrow.

    Is it worth it to buy AppleCare+ (or non plus version) for the iPhone 5s considering that I will have a case on it? Also, is it possible to buy the AppleCare+ after getting the device?

    AppleCare + can be bought anytime within 30 days of purchase. I almost always get it just because there is less hassle. This year though I'm thinking about skipping because I know in only going to have it until the next release. I always have an Otterbox too so it's not like I'm going to majorly damage the phone.

    This is an incredibly subjective issue.

    Your iPhone comes with the basic AppleCare coverage - a 1 year warranty against manufacturing defects. The warranty includes 90 days of phone support (call Apple for assistance with issues/questions).

    The AppleCare+ (PLUS) coverage extends the coverage (including the telephone support) for a full 2 years, and also covers accidental damage (breakage, water damage, etc) for $99. The catch is that typically, an "in warranty" replacement due to physical damage (breakage, water damage, etc) for $269. The AppleCare+ will allow you to replace your device TWICE in the coverage period for $79 per incident.

    Neither plan covers loss/theft of your device.

    So the question becomes one of "how clumsy are you?" If you tend to be accident prone and drop your phone a lot, it may be a good investment for you. It means that for $260 ($99 + $79 + $79), you can replace your phone twice for about the standard charge of replacing your phone once. If you buy it and never use it, then you have wasted the $99 price of the coverage...

    Bottom line: Some buy it, some don’t. How accident prone are you?

    I have carrier insurance AND AppleCare+ and I am glad I pay/paid for both. AppleCare+ doesn't cover loss/theft, and I have experienced a theft. But dealing with carrier insurance in the case of malfunction is a total pain in the a-- so it's just easier to get AppleCare+ for that.

    My phone is on truck for delivery! WOOT!

    You have 30 days to get AppleCare+ but if not purchased with the phone, Apple may require an inspection of the phone to verify that it is not already damaged. I don't know how often they actually do this though.

    They do have a process for activating a diagnostic report remotely, as well.
