    yep. which is why i'm confused as to their course of action to AK...
    I got mine on launch day but I live in NY it came thru JFK in NY went to KY then back to JFK NY then to my local UPS where I picked it up. All in less than 18 hours.

    Yeah ups has the main hub in Louisville just like fedex has their main hub in Memphis. Kills me how they let your stuff go back and forth. Seems like a waste to me but I'm sure that there's a very good reason.

    The scan in Louisville about customs is them trying to clear the customs before it arrives that way when it does arrive it moves through the system seamlessly.

    The proper flightplan from China/Asia is to make a stop in Anchorage for fuel. The wind also carries them that way so it is shorter and more fuel efficient to stop there.

    I think if you order directly from Apple you get the tracking from China to the US but if you order from you carrier it picks up wherever your carrier takes responsibility for the package...they all start in China

    Makes more sense then someone telling me to check my authenticity like AT&T has been shipping me fake iPhones to me my sister and cousin and mom when we pre ordered the five, so now the 6 has come from the same place and it might not be real. Me,my mom and pharmacist must have fake phones. I've been to my local Apple store (not too local about 45 minutes away) several times and they never mentioned an issue about my phone not being an apple product, I'll be sure to ask them when I buy my apple care the day I receive my phone if it's fake or not. I also don't care about watching my phone starting at China. I believe usps starts the tracking process once it's in the UNITED STATES. I googled it. Thanks for the answer though.

    I assume

    Order From Apple. China>Customer

    Order From Carrier. China>
    Carrier Warehouse(AT&T TX)>Customer

    I think Sprint has warehouses in KY and TN.

    Holy buckets I was joking. Geez. Who spit in your Cheerios?

    Anyway. Looks like mine cleared customs in Alaska instead of Kentucky and that was the issue. So all is well as of now.

    @olliegrl - UPS really needs to get its act together with these scans and updates. Mine was on its way to the wrong state. I lit several fires under several people's you-know-whats and told UPS that I would take this to Twitter, FB AND Instagram. I also called Apple customer service.

    Long story short, I got it on time. Don't know what clinched it, but somehow it got to me on time.

    I'm ready for another mixup next year.

    That's terrible! Especially when they're sending products directly from China. Shouldn't have to deal with this, Apple!!! Hope it works out for you. I'm curious as to what happens next.

    I got this link from another forum.
    Track UPS flights.
    With a tracking number you can find out which your iPhone is on. I don't have a tracking number yet so I don't know it works. It's also a iOS app.

    Now now. Lol.

    I'll tell u a story. I ordered some speakers and a receiver from newegg once. They set in California until the day before they were supposed to be delivered. Then suddenly it went to left Cali at like 10pm got West Virginia or Ky and then to by from door in 18 hours..

    I also used to work in FedEx they have all there crap together. It may not seem like it from the tracking info but they do. Also the scanning isn't absolutely must be done case. Yes it helps fed ex and ups keep track and the customer keep track but each package is scanned by a person and of course they're gonna miss some. We live in a decent size city. About 100,000 in the area and surrounding counties and UPS here does about 130,000 packages a night. That's not during Christmas and I've heard some absolute horror stories about the amount of boxes in that plant.

    Oh I know that it's a logistic nightmare but it was going to Winchester KY instead of Winchester VA. AND I'd taken the day as a telework day so I could be here to sign. Their solution was for me to change delivery so there would be no signature. They'd leave it on my porch whenever it hit rerouted to the correct Winchester.

    Unmmmmm no. Not leaving My Beloved unattended on a front porch where she could be taken.
