    I get nothing when I enter my phone # into the reference field on the fedex site. (sigh) Patience is no virtue of mine.

    I'm pretty sure the iPhone 5 was shipped via FedEx and UPS. I just checked out FE just for the heck of it, no info yet.

    There's a bad storm going through my area all this week and I'm concerned that it's going to delay the shipment of my iPad mini. It would be nice if it didn't, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

    I was just able to get my tracking number this morning by using the Track Reference method on the UPS website. A shipping label was created, but it hasn't been shipped yet. It's scheduled for delivery on 11/2. I entered my phone number, country and zip code.

    What format did you enter your phone number in?

    Like: (###)-###-####
    or: ###-###-####
    or: 1-###-###-####

    And so on...

    Edit: Never mind, I figured out you just have to enter it with just the numbers, no hyphens.

    My iPad Mini is still preparing for shipment but my smart cover (ordered at the same time) shipped yesterday early morning! The Smart Cover has been stuck in Hong Kong for over a day now though! iPad mini Shipping/Tracking Thread-screen-shot-2012-10-28-2.49.35-pm.png iPad mini Shipping/Tracking Thread-screen-shot-2012-10-28-2.51.14-pm.png

    Yep. The tracking info in the above thread has the Mini going through the same countries as the iPhone 5. It will end up in Alaska and then come down to the lower 48. No fear of it getting delayed by Frankenstorm if you live in the mid-West.

    If you're on the East Coast of the US, they already have them staged in the East, so hopefully this means no effect by the Frankenstorm.

    I did a track by reference with FedEx (actually I tried UPS first) and got the following result:

    Attachment 21765

    In case the screen capture isn't legible, it was picked up by FedEx in Middleton, PA for one day delivery on 11/2.

    I ordered the iPad and AppleCare. AppleCare was already sent, I think.

    They don't send you AppleCare +, it is attached to your iPad when you get it so you don't have to activate it or anything.

    I did get the documents via snail mail for my iPhone 5, that's what I meant.

    Does Apple charge your credit card as soon as the order is placed or only when it ships? I thought they only charged you the amount when the device actually ships, but my card was charged the full amount, even though I'm not supposed to get mine until the 16th. I'm debating on going into the store on Friday and trying to pick one up, but was wondering if I somehow might get mine early since my card has already been charged.

    They charge when it goes into the "preparing for shipment" status.

    That's what I thought. I'm now wondering if I might get my white one on Friday after all since my card has been charged. My order status still says an 11/16 delivery.

    I don't think you can cancel your iPad mini order you might have to wait for it to ship to you then return in the store for a Refund.

    You can cancel the order as long as the status says "processing" but not after it says "preparing for shipment".

    Tracking still not working by reference number through Fedex or UPS. Has been at the "preparing for shipping" since Friday. Surely its shipped by now!
