    I ordered from AT&T on the 15th, and the Order Status says that it shipped, but when I click on the Tacking Number for FedEx, it shows that it's not found. Help? :confused:

    If it was just shipped, it'll take a bit to actually show up.

    They probably slapped the label on the box but have not given them to FedEx yet. No big deal. We should all see some activity in the next 24 hours.

    Yes. If you see the no info found message it means FedEx has not taken physical custody of the package yet.

    I would agree except mine says shipped on the 17th. I think that FedEx is moving them thru the system but just not reporting. They can't still be in China today if they are going to be delivered on the 24th.

    I am betting when the number is good they will be close to delivery and show the whole history.

    You'd be surprised how fast a package can go from China to the US.

    Mine was "Shipped" on the 17th as well. AT&T is not shipping from china.

    Could be either way. Sure it can still be in China. FedEx delivers overnight packages from China and everywhere else around the world routinely. It's what they do.

    It's possible:
    1) Your phone is on a pallet that is still waiting for FedEx p/u
    2) FedEx has taken possession but missed a scan (though missing one scan is common, missing multiple is not)

    Give it time. Tracking number means you have a box w/ a shipping label on it - the numbers don't light up until its physically picked up by FedEx/UPS.

    Actually it means that FedEx hasn't received the data yet. Once they receive the data the tracking number starts working. At least that is when it started working for me. It also estimates delivery for 3:00pm Jun 23rd.

    I ordered from AT&T for those wondering.

    No tracking here, still.

    But I got another "your order has shipped" email this morning?

    I got my shipping notice just now, with tracking number.

    It states...

    Your iPhone order is staged for pickup by our shipping carrier. Your tracking number is shown below.

    Because of unprecedented volume, it may be as much as 24 to 72 hours before the carrier can provide any detailed information to you. Please don't be concerned if you visit the carrier's site and specific information about your order is not provided.

    Same boat here. The AT&T site says my phone was shipped on the 17th... although I never actually got an email telling me so, and the tracking number is still "Not Found."

    Should be scanned on the 23rd for overnight delivery on the 24th.

    i have the same problem, if you can call it that, but I called fedex and was told it was shipping from texas and is in their custody but will not physically ship until tomorrow. I dont know what that means as it makes no sense... I also asked, since its shipping tomorrow, if it is overnight and the woman said she cant tell me but shes pretty sure it is overnight. ATT page shows tracking number and shipped 6/17

    I use and ship via FedEx and UPS daily. It is what we do.

    I have no doubt that my FedEx Tracking will be good this evening and be delivered on the 23rd. I think MANY of the ATT phones where shipped in mass from China to ATT or the FedEx warehouse and all will be good. This is nothing new to FedEx or Apple and all will be fine.

    Why would you resurrect a 5 year old thread and say something redundant?

    Patience, my friend!
    I'm sure that after 5 years, your new iPhone will arrive any day now… :D

    In the middle of several books.
    Instead of posting a concern on here to people who can't answer your question, why don't you contact the people you bought the phone from, and get a tracking number or at least a status?
