    Hi guys

    This is my first purchase at the Apple Store online and I was wondering in how precise the estimated delivery times are.

    It says "Delivers: Sep 30 - Oct 2 by Standard Shipping". Did your previous orders arrive on the estimated delivery time too or did they generally came earlier/later?

    Did anyone have a shipping confirmation yet?

    I got that same delivery dates as well. My order still says processing. Typically in years past for me it had come early. Hoping this is the case again!

    I've lived through this before. They are basically saying "middle of the week after next" but the last time many of us got a 4s on the Friday of the following week (1 or 2 business days earlier than stated).

    I would not be surprised to see the phone next week Friday but it could be the following week. If history repeats itself, there will be a lot of posts next week Friday of happy and pissed off 1-3 day'ers.

    Typically when it was a preorder, my phone was sitting at UPS 5 days before I actually got it because they were instructed to hold them until release date. Now that the phone has already been released, they may come sooner than expected.

    I also remember being able to track my order in previous years by reference number on the fedex or ups site depending on which they use to ship. It showed up just after apple marked it as preparing to ship.

    Anything I order from Apple usually arrives sooner than the estimated delivery.

    In years past people got one or the other. Not sure how that is decided though. It usually comes by fedex for me.

    I have no idea. Most people have 2-3 day and I have next day and the delivery time is still 9/27 to 10/1

    As I wrote in another post, I just called Apple and the agent changed the delivery to expedited and he didn't charge me. Reason being is that there's no guarantee it'll arrive before the orig window. So basically I went from Sep 30 - Oct 2 standard shipping to Sep 27 - Oct 1 by 2-3 Business Days. If it arrives Sep 30 or Oct 1, it's within both windows. YMMV.

    Counting backwards, these dates suggest they'll leave the US warehouse next Wed, Sep 25.

    It was changed from Standard Shipping to 2-3 Business Days at no extra cost.

    I just called and can confirm Apple bumped me to expedited for free under a one-time exception. At most, she said this would gain a day. But she warned a co-worker ordered at 12:01 and his was already bumped twice and now says "October." I'm guessing he got the gold.

    She also warned that Sept 28-Oct 2 is a Chinese national holiday and their factory will be closed so no shipments during then.

    I just called Apple and they told me that ALL orders are going to be shipped via UPS and also that ALL of them are "expedite". The operator thought they will arrive by the end of next week. She also told me that nothing will get shipped during the weekend, they will start shipping Monday am (Sunday night in the US).
