Why the ******* do you guys feel the need to call VZW / FedEx and tell them, HEY IS MY PHONE COMING TOMORROW CAUSE I THOUGHT IT WAS ONLY SUPPOSED TO COME ON FRIDAY. I would leave it be and hope it slipped by rather than having them enter it in their computers, have it be put on the recently investigated orders and maybe they'll change it.

People these days...

I ordered mine on 9/14 around 8:30am and I still haven't been charged yet. I was expecting to be charged around Wednesday but apparently people have been charged already. Order status still says delivered by 9/21 so I'm still hopeful. Anyone else in the same boat?

I also have another question similar to the one earlier as opposed to activation.


My girlfriend and I are on two different Verizon accounts. She has an upgrade but she gave me hers so I bought an iPhone 5 and I plan on giving her my phone that I have now. How would I go about activating the iPhone 5 on my account? Note I am not on a family plan with her. Two separate plans.

Anyone?

I know it can be done. I don't know the process though.

I've got 4 new iPhone 5s coming from Verizon on Friday. I am wondering if anyone has experience with porting multiple lines and if there are any nuances to be aware of. When I purchased the new phones from VZW online I provided my AT&T account information and #s to port.

I am wondering at what point my AT&T account will be closed down? Will it be when I activate the 1st phone/ported #? Will that have any effect pn the ability to port the other #s. Any advice is appreciated. I don't want to lose any of the numbers.

Just to be safe I would port the non-main numbers first and than as the last one the main number that is tied to the account. It just seems safer that way to me. Personally I don't have any experience transferring multiple lines to a new carrier so I could be wrong.

When she gets it, both of you go to the closest VZW store. You'll need a new sim card since the one that the iPhone 5 comes with will be for her line.

He should be able to call over the phone and do it. The SIM's come blank it is the ESN MEID and those numbers that are tied to the line so when you call to activate it sees that information and activates it to the line its tied to. You can call and change this information. But since you are different accounts you may actually have to go down to a store but you shouldn't need a new SIM.

Quick question:

I have class on Friday from 12:50PM to 4:00PM and pretty much all but one from 1:55-2:45 are mandatory.

I don't think I can make it back to the apartment and sign off for the iPhone's arrival. Do you think I can call FedEx and have them hold it at the facility for me to pick up at 4:30PM?

Ok here is where I stand.

I made 2 orders both at 3am est. with 2 different CC's. 1st order 64gb white. 2nd 32gb black.

Order 1: No email conformation. No CC pre aut. NO receipt. All I got for this order is the order number and the Reference No. Also if I go to try to buy the phone again it says I have a pending order. Verizon internet call center says everything is fine and phone will ship on 19th.

Order 2: Got con email instant. Got charged on CC. And I got the receipt in the doc section of Verizon’s website.

So the fact that the 1st order placed is showing very little vs. the 2nd I’m nervous. :eek:

My date changed to the 5th of October and my order was placed as 2:01 CDT. I called when the date changed from the 21st and while I was on hold I received an email saying that my card was declined. I finally got through and they said that the card was declined. I think it was over my daily spending limit. I gave them another card and it declined and sent a fraud alert text message. So the 3rd card seemed to be the trick. The guy on the phone said it will still ship on the 21st and now my date has been removed from the status page but it still says that payment hasnt been made. grrrrr.

I cancelled T-Mobile finally for Verizon to get the iPhone 5, I preordered two of them for my gf and I on Friday at 5:30am Chicago time, got the same 21st delivery date. My card hasn't been charged yet and still the same order is in process confirmation. I really hope it changes tomorrow. Rep told me everyone who preordered that morning should receive tracking information via email by the 18th, hope he's right.

They tie the ESN/MEID and all that good stuff to the line and when you call to activate it downloads and stores data on the SIM.

So yeah, my preorder still says:
"We received your order and it is in process."
New to VZW and am bringing my number over from ATT. Oh well, I will try not to get caught up in all this waiting...I remember the craziness everyone was going through during the release of the 4.

My friend is a supervisor in the shipping dept at verizon. She said there is no way any iPhone 5s went out as it would be a contractual breech with apple. Brian ordered something else and is hoping others are gullible. Not working dude.

That would definitely be nice. I ordered on Verizon's site at about 12:26 PM Central.

My order was 11:30 Central (9:30 Pacific). I think 9 Pacific was about when they slipped from 9/21 to 9/26. Every pre-order I've done the shipping estimates have improved as the date got closer, so let's hope this one gets bumped up.

Calling Bravo Sierra all over this. All my Apple pre-orders have made it to my city 3 or 4 days ahead of release, and all of them have been held by Fedex until the actual release date. So, while I wish you luck, I wouldn't bet the farm on it.


Here is the attached screen shot. I don't want to include the tracking info b/c someone will probably call and mess with it. I will upload pics tomorrow when I get it. Fedex confirmed that it will arrive tomorrow, Verizon said that they will not hold it and I will get it tomorrow. HORRAY! I am so pumped! I'll post pics and spread the love don't worry. I might go to the apple store on 5th ave and see if anyone will give me over $1500 for it. WOOOHOOO!!!!!!

The fact that (a) it only weighs 0.5 lbs, (b) is coming in an envelope and (c) was shipped on the preorder date pretty much proves that it is an ordered accessory, not a phone. Either the Hoff doesn't know the difference or is trolling.

There's just no way they're shipping such an expensive device in a flimsy envelope....and it's going to be closer to 0.8-1.0lbs.

Can we just have a blanket ban for anyone who lies about getting their phone. I mean we do not need all this BS. lets stay on topic.

So maybe the charged / fufilled/ shipped orders are dependant on model ordered. Maybe they didnt get to some phones yet.

64GB white (no cc charge)
32GB black (cc charged)

guys I think Verizon is packing/charging orders and marking them shipped. They will then hand them to the carrier all at once. If they ship them all fed ex 2 day it will be as simple as that to make sure you get the order on time. You can't expect all orders to be packaged at 1 moment. so over the next 2 days they will get all our early orders packed. They will hit the road on wed. Deliverd on friday.

What FedEx-apple does is send out the package at the fedex deadline which is 7pm. Hypothetically apple sent all of their packages out tonight or tomorrow at 7 pm, takes a complete day of travel, 7pm-7pm the next day, and will sit on truck overnight.

Then on the 2nd day ( if Monday you'll get Wednesday, Tuesday-Thursday, Wednesday-Friday.) but typically if it's coming from Tennessee, it sits somewhere for an entire day

But Apple will put a hold on it

Same here! And my order is sent to be processed and I have a receipt in my Verizon account. I'm glad I'm not the only one

I Googled disappearing pending charges out of curiosity, and one of the first results was people in the same bewildered state during the iPhone 4S launch last year. :rolleyes:

Seems like it turned out OK for those guys, so I won't worry about it!

maybe my deets will reassure people that keep asking the same stuff?

*ordered 2 16GB black iphones approx 12:20am pacific on 9/14
*got confirmation of order, but said credit hold because I'm a new customer
*order number is 50xxx.
*got email confirmation at 3:23am pacific on 9/14 with credit hold removed
*9/14 afternoon status said: We received your order and it is in process. Expected Ship Date: 09/21/2012
*No preauthorization on my debit card.
*9/17 afternoon status said: Your order has been sent for processing. Date is blank now.
*Still no preauth listed on my online banking, but on 9/17 evening my available balance is $398 less than my current balance. (2 $199 phones with no tax, I live in Oregon).
*my order location is W779201 and I live in Oregon.

so even though I have no listed arrival date, I'm feeling good about still getting them on the 21st. :) Thanks for all the info in this thread!

I'm tired of the posts of people saying we should calm down. First off the whole point is reveling in the excitement. Should we use the thread to discuss the weather?

More importantly my phone order would have been canceled had I not been on top of it and given Verizon a call when my preorder date slipped. Some issues work themselves out, but others don't.

Sep 17, 2012, 10:52 PM
I placed my preorder on the verizonwireless.com site in the evening on 9/15.

There was a prompt email reply asking us to call in and confirm information for the credit approval. We did that and then immediately got a second email confirming the order.

The confirmation email has an order number, a preorder number, an order location and indicates the phone will be delivered by 9/28.

There is also a link to check the order status. But so far entering the order number and last name into the form to check the status always comes back saying that they have no record of the order.

Is this cause for alarm, or is the second batch of pre-orders just delayed in being processed or something? Am I the only one with a 9/28 order that doesnt show up in the order status system, or is this common?

Yeah, in retrospect I have had this happen before with larger purchases -- the pending charge goes on to verify the funds, falls off fairly quickly, then the actual charge goes on a couple days later.

I agree. Part of the appeal of preordering in the first place is the excitement of being in on the early rush. Getting worked up is sort of the point! Besides, I need something to occupy my mind between now and Friday. Work just isn't cutting it in that capacity.

A lot of movement tonight, but has anyone with a business website order received any updates beyond the initial email? I see a few pending charges (they wouldn't let me bill it to the account), and the b2b website says "awaiting inventory" with a expected delivery date of 9/21.

None of my order info works on the status page everyone else is using.

So here's my story:

I pre-ordered an iPhone 5 on Verizon at midnight pacific time. Added a new line to my family's ShareEverything™ plan.

I ordered with my debit card, inputting my social security number and drivers license.

My father (who is the primary account holder) received an e-mail shortly after my order, stating my item is on hold. So we called them the next morning, fixed the issue and the lady on the phone said my order was successfully placed for a delivery date of the 21st.

However, I never got an order confirmation e-mail or anything like that. I do have a order reference number and an order number.

I've checked the order status several times and it hasn't changed; "Here is the status of your Pre-order: We received your order and it is in process. Expected Ship Date: 09/21/2012"

Am I good to go? I haven't received any shipment notifications or anything, not even an order confirmation.

Should I call VZW tomorrow to confirm my order?

Any help would be great. I'm still anticipating a delivery on the 21st, but I just think it's odd nothing has changed. Maybe I'll give it a few more days before I call.

I think I'm actually more pissed to find out the LTE iPhone won't allow talk and data at the same time.

That is a BIG disappointment to me too. Since ALL other Verizon 4G devices allow simultaneous talk and data, I ASSumed the same would be true for the i5.

I'm in Colorado and that's my location. Ordered around 4AM EST, been charged and am currently processing.

I'm in Utah. Ordered 3:12 EST. My debit card's been charged. And my order "has been sent for processing."

I'm in Nebraska and that's my location as well. Credit card has been charged and I've been "sent for processing".

Checked on VZW.com and they have my receipt and everything I just would like an email. Am I the only only like this?

I'm switching from AT&T and I rarely used that feature... The only time it could be a problem is when someone calls while driving but Maps caches a lot of data so you should be fine

See, I didn't think that GPS/WiFi features like maps were affected by that. I thought it was primarily for actual OTA data like surfing the web, etc. with a momentary but recoverable break in the data during a call. Oh well, we'll see. If it sucks, it sucks, and I'll *gulp* switch to something else.

Is the issue just with AMEX? Just curious where the glitch info came from? Same issue with fraud hold (interestingly enough I was allowed to use the card multiple times all day, great fraud system) and I could never get an answer from Verizon when the charge would be ran again? They said it would hang around for 7 days but no explanation when it would be sent back to AMEX to try again. Hold removed, guess only time will tell.

You'll need to hit up Verizon for a new sim for your number.

I have been through this before, since I have a used 4g phone. Essentially once a 4g sim card is activated on a phone it is permanently linked to that line. If you activate the iphone on different line than yours first, you will need to either buy a new sim card from verizon, or use a current 4g sim card if you are using a 4g phone with verizon. They are much much cheaper online vs going into the store. If you think you may need one, order now.
