    Curious...what time did your VZW order go through? I was on the site at 2:55 EST but couldn't actually order until almost 4...
    I completed my order right at 3:50am EST. I received my initial conformation email at 4:08am EST.

    I wonder if I would be wasting my time by pre ordering now since most orders placed are backed up as of now. I have to work next Friday so I will try my luck at the Verizon Store sometime that evening.

    I ordered at 2:50 am from Verizon. Got the 128 gig gold Plus. Got an email an hour later confirming delivery on 9/19. Website shows no delivery info. I called and the rep said her system shows that I will be getting it on 9/19 and I should get an email soon!

    Mine changed to preparing to ship, but the ship date still says between 10/13/14 and 10/31/14 patience sucks.

    I ordered a 6+ 64GB (silver) and 6+ 64GB (gold) from the Apple Store app and both are "preparing for shipment" with a delivery date of 9/19.

    Mine says "preparing for shipment." I ordered a 6 plus 64gb Verizon model using the Apple store app at about 12:40am PDT on launch day (I am up then anyway). The order says deliver by 9/19. But I had to use the app to see changed status - the text alerts are not happening for me. The only thing that worked to buy from Apple that night was the Apple app and not a browser, as I had two laptops and an iPad using two different ISP's. I think Apple put quotas on certain geographical areas (determined by IP addresses) to spread out sales. I also think their area of purchase allocations was what messed up that night. I also suspect that Asian countries got more 6 plus allocations - as Apple wanted to snatch that market from Samsung and friends.

    My experience with my last 4 pre-orders is that (for me) they have always shipped from China (iPhone 5 and S, iPad Air, and iPad mini Retina). When you track them they seem like they won't arrive on time, but they always do. I think Apple has the carriers hold onto them to deliver on the 9/19 launch day. My fedEx driver told me that they had standing orders to hold on to any Apple shipment if they got one to deliver early. I think the devices are coded with carrier tracking to control delivery. I have heard of some arriving a day or two early anyway, but I expect that won't happen this time. Supposedly Apple has "taken over" all the air cargo out of China for a while. Hopefully their mistakes on pre-order day will be offset by competent logistics.

    Darn it. Mine still says Processing Order. It still has the 9/19 delivers date, but I really wish it would move to the preparing for shipment phase...

    .

    I'm assuming you purchased from the Apple store. If so, don't worry. If you need to confirm make sure they hit your credit card. Even a $1 pre-auth on your card is indication of a pending charge. Some cards only show the $1 pre-auth rather than the whole bill. My card authorized the full amount, as the are all different. I would only worry if it doesn't say "shipped" by Wednesday. I bet they are shipping 5 million phones now all at once. So some things do not always immediately update.

    Apple has already shown us in the last week that they can make good devices, but has trouble using the Internet. Good luck!

    It'll probably be held for intentional 9/19 delivery. I won't hold my breath on a day early. Doesn't matter anyway now that I'm thinking of the 6+ instead.

    This is exactly the same tracking info that I got, but I'm also trying not to get my hopes up.

    Thanks.

    I wonder if they are going through and taking care of the 6 orders before moving on to 6+. I pre-ordered a 16GB 6+ for my mom just after I did my order (also VZW) and she got a shipping email a few hours ago. My order is for a 64GB 6+ and no email yet.

    Yeah I got a + 64g as well. Hoping to get it sooner then later. I seen people writing that they're shipments say November. Depends on the phone company?

    Ordered through verizonwireless.com at 1201am. My email from Verizon stated that I would receive my 6 plus 64GB on the 19th but the Order status and Order History section on their website still says it's down. When I enter my preorder conf through the hotlink in the email they sent me it states it's still processing. [edited]

    The guy at T-Mobile is possibly wrong. He’s a low level employee who has no clue what Apple and the shippers are doing. With the iPhone 4 launch in 2010 many phones were delivered several days early. Apple pitched a fit. I don’t see it happening again.

    Well my delivery date isn't even before the release date so it doesn't really effect me. A couple days after i don't mind, but I don't wanna wait until mid November like I seen some people saying that that's when they're date is.

    I purchased 2 iPhone 6 Plus, for confirmation email that they will arrive 9/19, but when I track my order on Verizon I get this...... Anyone else on VZ??
    I got the exact same thing. My pre-order confirmation email said delivery by 9/19, but the VZ website now says the same thing - date not available at this time.

    I got a notification from AT&T on the 12th telling me to pre-order. I had an "oh ****" moment and ordered through AT&T. Currently it is sitting at: Expected Ship Date: 11/09/2014 To 11/27/2014. I've only ever ordered a 4S online but that was already out for awhile and got it a couple days later so I'm not sure how "exact" these notifications are. I'm beyond excited though. I got my big screen finally that I missed from android and windows phone but none of the terribleness of those Operating Systems. It will come when it comes though and I don't want another situation happening where the quality starts degrading because they are working the people too hard. I've had waaaay too many quality issues with non-apple phones to deal with any more. I really need to get a feel for the size of this behemoth though. Maybe I'll go see if the AT&T store has any cases for it yet.

    Ordered mine from VZW with a date of 9/19. Still no order update other than "processing". I was freaking a little until i saw they charged my card.

    All I can do now is wait.
