Find Serial of Shipped iPhone 5

My iPhone 5 (16GB CDMA) finally shipped after a month, and I need the serial number for it. I recall seeing a thread on how to find your serial number if it just shipped, but can't find it.

Can somebody help?

It's not going to be three days until it arrives. UPS and Apple are quoting me a delivery date of the 12th.

And if you really must know, I need the serial number because I'm purchasing AppleCare for the device.

So purchase it when you get it.

While I understand we all have the right to free speech on the Internet, I don't need to be told what to do. I just want an answer to my question.


EDIT: Nevermind, I found a solution myself. I did a bunch of Googling, and found out that Apple automatically inserts the serial number into your support profile. Logged in, and there it was.

See William Hummel? With a little enterprise and some simple searching, you found the answer all by yourself. Don't you feel better now William Hummel @wghummel?

Hmm. Here's a grand idea. Let's all stop arguing over something completely ridiculous.

And while we're at it, let's stop doing web searches for me to find my social media accounts and other info.
