Thanks! I tried this and was able to see that mine has shipped as well, and I was able to get the tracking number.

You really don't at this point, but just try ups and tracking by reference number

Since Fedex ships faster, I think East coast and Central customers will receive their phones from them. Leaving Mountain time and West coast customers with UPS.

I've had 'preparing for shipment' for 4 different i5's since yesterday.

Can confirm because the UPS method doesn't work for me.


Edit: UPS worked for me a few days ago for my iPhone but my parents and girlfriend still cannot track theirs.

With the 4 and 4s, those that shipped from China via UPS were set for 10:30 AM delivery.

Just pure speculation on my part. How far is your iPhone in the shipping process?

Maybe a lot of people will get their phones on Thursday.

20 min ago it said departed from that same location. Maybe it left some sorting facility and now is getting ready to be shipped on the plane.

Found my tracking # by using the "track by reference"! A couple questions though:

1. My UPS delivery guy usually comes here very late in the day like 630p - 700p. Will this change for the iPhone 5 delivery?


2. It says that the scheduled delivery date is 9/21, will it say that for orders that might have to come early? Does anyone have experience with early delivery for iphone 4 or 4s that could confirm this?

I'm so excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Been waiting for LTE for 2 years and I'm the last one of my friends to get a LTE phone.

The only way it will come early is if it says Early AM delivery on it or if they run different routes that day
