    I ordered a 16 for the wife a day after anouncement but a 32 for myself on the day of. Mine shipped several days ago and I prepared my wife for the possibility that mine might arrive first (the original tracking stated mine would arrive today)... Her's continued to say preparing to ship until just now.



    As of this moment, hers is one state away in Middletown Pa. and mine is still sitting in Alaska, not yet shipped out, if you want to believe the tracking info...



    I believe Apple when they say they will arrive by tomorrow, but I guess the karma would be right if I got mine later because I only got her the 16...

    I know where FedEx is, I used to work there as a courier. That link points to an old Watkins warehouse. FedEx is 200 Fulling Mill Rd, Middletown, PA.



    But my point is: I doubt Apple would stash 500k iPhones at the FedEx station!

    Regardless, I think you'll be fine. I've been antsy, hitting refresh regularly. So I feel your pain, dude.

    Well... they're smaller boxes :P



    And who knows, maybe there are other centers that have the phones but nobody's reported on them yet. As long as no one raids them and I receive my phone tomorrow as planned, I have no quarrels with Apple

I'll just be happy if they deliver it on Friday at this point.



    it's really starting to look like we'll have to wait till next week - saturday if we're really lucky and/or close to the middle of the country. it looks like ups is not going to resume shipments until the 19th!

    No actually it isn't looking like that, the transit / exception / delivery messages have been all over the place and changing constantly for the last several days, Apple has stated that phones will be delivered tomorrow on the scheduled release date. Unless you ordered after the 14 / 15th which ever day the cut off was, you most likely def. really will get the phone tomorrow.



    I have given up on checking the UPS site for information, too many ups and downs, I talked to my buildings UPS guy yesterday and he had heard nothing about iPhones, then this morning he mentioned he was talking to the guy who has the Apple Store on his route and they are doing an extra run there (the store is across the street from my apartment).



    SO unless you ordered after the cut off I don't think the "waiting till next week" posts are anything but the glass is half empty and you doom saying.



    It only takes a couple hours for a plane to fly anywhere in the country from KY .. this IS their business after all =P



    Buck up little chipperoos .. tomorrow is gonna be a good day.

    To be fair i said "starting to look like that" . I agree the UPS tracking has been a fiasco so far and is not nearly trustworthy information at this point. I suppose I've got a bit too much anxiety about it given my excitement. I just know I'll be extremely disappointed if it's not here tomorrow given all the promises made by apple that it would be, and that probably makes me more fearful.



    Like i've said before though, deep down I'm sure it will work out.



    It's just weird that they would fly everything overnight to the coast when they had all this time to ship everything by truck, but I'm not going to pretend to understand all the deals made between the apple and them, so whatever. It will be interesting to see if the tracking is updated at all today.

    I'm a Red Sox fan too



    Up until 9AM this morning all I had was "preparing for shipment" so I had a dim outlook on it until then. Maybe the Kentucky iPhones were all magically moved to other distribution centers closer to where they're destined the same way mine was teleported from China to PA

    I dunnooo... I think I'm gonna start accepting the fact that I'm most likely not getting mine tomorrow.

    Maybe if it wasn't "Prepared for Shipment" still, but since I don't even have a tracking number, it doesn't seem too promising...

    I dunno man... just tryin' to give you some hope. I didn't have a tracking number until just this morning. When did you order?

    Got this from the AT&T forum:

    Try this:





    Call 1-888-333-6651. Press 1. Press 2. Press 1 for online like mine. Press 1. Enter order number followed by #. Press 1. Say yes.



    Tracking number should be provided with shipping info



    Worked for me to get a tracking number.
