    I'm wondering if Apple struck a deal with UPS to NOT deliver before the 14th. I'm sure when you're shipping such a large order it's possible to make delivery demands. Such as "Don't deliver before the 14th". That doesn't mean a lot wouldn't still slip between the cracks and mistakenly get delivered, but I'm guessing (Just a guess) most of us will see our iPhones make it to our nearest distribution center and sit until Friday before it goes "Out for delivery".

    Anyone have any actual information on this? Rather than my speculation?

    Actual information on a rumors forum? Nope.

    But, what you describe is how it worked with the iPhone 4 release - so it's a pretty safe bet.

    Some of the iPhone 4's got out early, but the 3GSs were definitely held until the day they were supposed to delivered.
