    I got a shipping notice today too and it is now saying that the delivery date is Thursday the 18th. Do phones ever arrive before the release date? This is only my second pre-order and the last one arrived a couple of days after release if I recall correctly.

    No they will hold it until Friday. It won't come early. Sorry

    I remember hearing the the iPhone 4 was delivered early by Fedex and Apple was really pissed. Haven't heard of it happening since then.

    Well, hopefully there's someone at FedEx who hasn't heard about that and it's on the truck Thursday.

    It's nice to dream.

    Well in this case it's PA to NY. So, we'll see. If it's five days, it's five days. Not a big deal.

    I also received the 1st of my 3 shipping notices from Verizon. The thing I hope doesn't turn out to be true is it stated delivery by 8:00PM. It will kill me having to wait around all day for them to arrive.

    It looks like FedEx will hold the shipments until Friday.

    Do certain carriers use fedex and and others UPS or is it completely random? I am really hoping for Fedex. They usually deliver in my neighborhood late morning or early afternoon. UPS is usually between 7:00PM and 9:00PM.

    I think Apple has the delivery be held until the 19th, so it won't be delivered any time before that. That's what they are supposed to do, but occasionally there will be reports of a couple phones getting delivered before launch day.

    No. All carriers use the top four parcel carriers to deliver their packages (UPS, FedEx, USPS, DHL) how they choose which company to use is different from each other. AT&T for example: Their main warehouse is in TX. if you live like 3-8 hours away from Texas they will probly send your device via USPS. That's how it was with S5 preorders. but others who lived 10 or more hours was giving UPS or FedEx, DHL, but since Apple seems to have control over shipping Im guessing it will be a FedEx or UPS
