Exactly. Too bad Apple won't turn on "find my phone" at the factory for us! LOL

I just got an email from my good friends at AT&T.

They love me so much they wanted me to know about my "Customer Service Summary (Wireless)".

They're so nice.

BUT WAIT!!!!

In my "Customer Service Summary (Wireless)", there's an $18 upgrade fee!?#@*&+

WTF???

I guess I'll give my wonderful, good friends at AT&T (that I've been with since 1991) a call and tell them how much I love them........

I got that email too, but firefox alerted me that every link in the email went to an unsecure site. I ignored it, went myself to ATT.com and checked to make sure it was all ok. I was expecting the $18 upgrade fee. I just spent $600 on phones. $36 isn't worth my complaining

I was with them since Cingular, had the same number for at least 15 years now. Let me know if you get it taken off. I know I used to complain and get that activation fee waived when I was upgrading those crappy flip phones every 6 months, but don't have the energy to fight with them anymore.

You can use flightaware.com to track the flight. Doesn't change anything, but kinda fun to play with.

Hi,
I ordered mine just a few minutes after 3am on the Verizon wireless site (from New York City). My Amex card showed the charge yesterday. A few minutes later I received a shipment notice. This morning I received the UPS tracking #, but it won't show the progress. It does say it shipped on 10/11, so I'm hoping for a Thursday or Friday delivery.

I logged into my AT&T wireless account and went to "Orders" and found that its status was "Shipped on 10/11" and it included the UPS tracking number. But, the tracking link wasn't and using that tracking number on the UPS site also doesn't work.. I suspect that means the waybill has been put together, but that UPS hasn't actually tracked it into their system. As well, I imagine that when it does tracked, I'll get the email promised by AT&T that the phone has shipped.

This reminds me of being a little kid at Christmas. I'm a bit embarrassed..

I thought AT&T only shipped FedEX "unless you are an employee of UPS or another shipping company". Have you tried the tracking number on the FedEx site? I know it sounds screwy, but we are dealing with AT&T here.

Yeah.. I know, I saw that. But, I've verified the format of the number - it's UPS. Dunno why.

AT&T sells 200k iPhone 4S's in 12 hours, and a Verizon customer gets it before all of them?

post #55 of 67
Received an email today saying my iPhone ordered from AT&T at 8:30am on Friday shipped on 10/8 via FedEx. Of course the tracking numbers don't work, but I can hope it shows up tomorrow! Probably not\

My status changed. It's now "Preparing for shipment"! Woohoo!

Hell yeah! Mine says the same thing now as well.

Hmm....think there's time for it to make it to Canada on Friday? I'd really like to NOT give Bell any of my money when I head to the US on Saturday.

Unless it ships from Canada tomorrow with one-day delivery option from FedEx/UPS, it's impossible to get it on 14 October.

Looks like mine was picked up at 1pm their time.

Mine had a weird note on UPS:
The service selected is not available to the destination address. / Downgraded, forwarded to consignee, selected service is not available.

Daaaamn, my shipping email from Apple says the 19th, Wednesday! Oh well, I'd rather miss it by a lot than a little.

Went to a local Verizon store last Friday to pre-order two iPhone 4Ses, got the order confirmation and was told they would be delivered tomorrow (10/14). After not getting any kind of shipping confirmation, I spent an hour on hold with Verizon this morning only to be told that the pre-orders were sold out and they had pushed back my delivery date two weeks to Friday 10/28 without any kind of notification. Seriously pissed about this.

I've got a tracking number here in Northern California. My phone shows as having left San Diego early this morning and being on route. My guess is that it will show as having arrived in a nearby sorting station sometime this afternoon/evening, and will be put on a truck tomorrow morning (my delivery is scheduled for Friday).

EDIT: I just rechecked, and it shows as having arrived in Louisville, KY (!). I always forget about UPS' freaky centralized distribution system, where something coming from a few miles away makes a trip across country.

That's funny.. I'm in Idaho, and my phone went from Dallas to Louisville (to), and presumably will go to Boise - maybe through SLC.. Yours will at least get a more direct route to you. I wonder why mind wouldn't have come from San Diego too. Different carriers?

I ordered mine through Verizon (since the Apple Store didn't come online till a while after midnight PST). It's still sitting in Louisville, which makes me nervous. I mean, I realize UPS runs planes all night long and it's something like a 5 hour flight, so there's still plenty of time to get it here for delivery tomorrow, but even so I'd sleep easier if I knew it was winging its way toward me.
