Mine has already left memphis so check yours again. Ups said it was sent guarenteed overnight and said it will be here today!! I actually called ups as well as tracked it online.

Wow, hope you guys get yours today. I ordered from Apple's website which must have been a bad idea since mine has said "prepared for shipment since about 2PM yesterday [Thursday].

EDIT: I'm hoping the live chat option will go live because I really do not want to have to call Apple. I'm just curious to see if the ones that have pre-ordered from the Apple Store will get here sooner. *sigh*.


EDIT #2: I just read a few posts on another forum, many people that have already gotten their shipping notice said their delivery date is on Monday [The 7th].

Checking UPS tracking it shows NDA (next day air). The package was received by UPS yesterday and departed Memphis, TN at 6:10AM this morning. Hoping to see it by noon today.

Mine says the same. I got tracking late last night and it shows as departing Memphis at 6:10 am.. no further updates though. I bet I don't see mine until Monday. Unless they send out late trucks. If it shows later as delivering Monday I will try to pick up at the terminal, UPS typically lets you do that.

Just called UPS with my tracking number, he apologized that it didn't have a expected delivery time and said it would be here today by 5, but drivers have until 7pm to finish their routs.

Hey Arwillette, when you track online, what info does it say? Just that it left West Chester, PA?

Thats all that mine says. Just curious

Mine says the same thing, but when I called the UPS toll free number they said it will be here today. 2/4

Interesting. Even though my order number is 62, I haven't gotten any UPS/FedEx confirmation yet and the Verizon order tracking is still down.

I'm guessing its dependent upon how efficient whatever facility the order got allotted to is the hold up.
post #50 of 87
I called UPS and got an idiot. Barely spoke english and had no idea when the package would arrive, and said to just check the website. Couldn't even confirm delivery address.

Well, mine won't be here today. Mine decided to go to Louisville, KY from Memphis instead of straight over to Nashville. Looks like Monday for me, or hopefully arrives in Nashville later for a possible pickup at terminal this weekend.

This morning Verizon sent a shipping notice with tracking number via email. It's coming UPS. Last status was Departure Scan, 11:30 A.M., West Chester, PA - In Transit.

The original confirmation that I received from Verizon said it would be shipped UPS Standard Overnight, so I should get it Monday. I ordered the phone at 3:15 AM from the Verizon site and received the extra $50 discount.

Got my emails from Verizon this afternoon with FedEx tracking numbers saying the packages have already left the Memphis hub and to expect delivery on Monday Feb 7! Lets hope they actually deliver!

I got the same $50 discount:

There are lines on your account that are eligible for an upgrade.
Your Exclusive Offer : Up to $50 exclusive discount on any device


All in all, it was 250 plus tax.

Well hell...Ill have to see if I got that! I didnt notice anything about that...

It automatically processed with the discount when I did my order, no opt-in or code. So, if you didn't see that discount on your bottom line, you're probably out of luck unless you want to fight it out with Verizon CS.
post #58 of 87
I don't understand how you all are already getting shipping notices? I ordered mine at 2:45AM and have yet to receive any notice! What is going on...?
post #59 of 87
I got my ups tracking number and it says Departed -\t West Chester, PA, United States, Friday, 02/04/2011 so its not coming in today even though it used ups next day air and it shipped last night. So i guess monday ill get it because ups does not ship weekends. Im not sure about people who got fedex for shipping.

Verizon subscribers who wasted no time ordering an iPhone 4 on Thursday have already received notification that their order has shipped, though whether the handsets will be delivered before the Feb. 10 launch date remains to be seen.

Multiple readers contacted AppleInsider on Thursday to share that their order of a CDMA iPhone 4 has already shipped, just hours after the handset first went on sale. Preorders for the CDMA iPhone 4 are currently only available for existing Verizon customers.

While the shipments are already headed out a week before the official Feb. 10 launch date, it is by means no sign that the devices will be delivered to customers early. When the iPad launched last April, the devices were held for days at the UPS Worldport hub in Louisville, Ken., to meet the April 3 launch date.

However, when the iPhone 4 debuted on AT&T's network last summer, some customers received early deliveries of the handset.

Verizon iPhone 4 preorders will open to all qualified customers next Wednesday, Feb. 9. And the device will officially go on sale at Apple and Verizon retail stores at 7 a.m. local time on Thursday, Feb. 10.

Some customers also reported issues attempting to order their CDMA iPhone 4 on Thursday, with Verizon's website allegedly returning error messages for some customers. Technical issues have been a regular occurrence when a new version of Apple's popular smartphone goes on sale.

I ordered mine early Thursday morning (12 AM PST) and I received an email stating I have been charged for the phone on my credit card and then I received another email that stated my order was shipped with a delivery date of Monday February 7th, by 3 PM.
post #61 of 87
... when did people order theirs? I am a 2:45AM person and have yet to receive any notice about shipping... Very angry and Verizon won't tell me anything but wait and your shipping tracking number will be emailed to you at some point.

one day shipping would mean you'd get it on the 5th, which means monday since the 5th is a saturday. getting it today would have been less than one day shipping lol

and mine says the exact same thing as yours. Left West Chester, PA at 11:30AM and i haven't gotten any other updates. i wish it would at least tell me if it's on time and what the scheduled delivery date is!
post #65 of 87
Apple may hold up delivery or delay activation to Feb 9 or Feb 10. Just something they've done in the past on new products or new versions.

My ups tracking page was just updated to say Scheduled Delivery:
Monday, 02/07/2011. Cant wait!

Maybe Apple insisted on no deliveries until the 10th.

post #70 of 87
yeah there must have been a hold on them because mine sat in Philly for an entire day. it now says On Time and scheduled delivery is monday! so excited
post #71 of 87
It seems obvious that there are no holds on the shipments. Like others, UPS tracking now shows my iPhone scheduled delivery as Monday 02/07/2011 by 3pm. It departed Philly at 3:44 A.M.

Verizon must heave learned something from Apple as far as getting free publicity. My friend who ordered at the same time I did, but from Apple, still has no shipping notice or tracking number. By getting the phones out so quickly, Verizon is getting all the news blurbs every day, and firing up even more Verizon iPhone lust before the major launch next week.

I wonder how that'll be handled?

The rest of the world will be getting iPhone 5 GSM... will Verizon keep iPhone 4 for a while? Is this part of Apple's deal severing single supplier with AT&T - that actually AT&T gets the latest model and VZN will be 'stuck' with iPhone 4 until summer 2012? They'll have the iPad 2 on both providers which has the potential to be just as much as a money spinner.

Plus I've seen more 3GS arrive in friends hands since Jul 10 than iPhone 4 so people are clearly motivated to get an iPhone even if it's not the latest and greatest (these are 'non-geek' friends!)

/speculation.

Apple has "hinted" that iPhone 5 will launch at the same time with both providers saying, "we're not stupid." Speculation is that the next iPhone will be able to work with both systems. No reason to make 2 entire lines of iPhone going forward.
post #74 of 87
it's not like the iphone4 is junk. people just want to get their hands on one, whether is the 4 or 5.

i find it kind of funny how verizon has shipped before apple, because i saw a lot of ppl online who were ordering from apple strictly because theirs would get shipped first...lol

Awesome!!!

Mine still shows it's at the local facility... not sure if it just hasn't updated, or if it really hasn't left for delivery yet.

Edit: Question for you guys, how are you planning on getting your contacts onto your iPhone? I don't really want to use Google sync for battery life purposes. Can I sync my Gmail contacts through iTunes?

Just out of curiosity, how long was the activation/update process?

It was very quick. I synced with iTunes and signed in with my Apple ID, it already knew my phone number and after transferring some apps over it was ready to go. Longest part was software update, which is already done and I have all my mail accounts set up. Maybe less than 5 minutes from unbox to activation. 30 min for software update maybe.
