    My iPhone was originally scheduled to be delivered on Monday, however my UPS tracking shows it being "re-scheduled" when the phone was in Shanghai (and now doesn't currently show a delivery date), and Apple has sent me an email saying it is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow 09/20.

    I called and the Apple Rep. didn't know much about it as my Apple Order Status page still shows the 9/22 date. My phone currently has departed Kazakstan a few hours ago I believe.

    Phone is to be delivered to me in the UK.

    Anyone know about this?

    UPS does Saturday delivery for a hefty fee, so probably doubtful in your case.

    I'm in California. The UPS chat guy told me that if they missed me at home today they'd try again Saturday instead of Monday.

    I saw an alleged UPS driver post in a thread and he said UPS does deliver Apple products on Saturdays (along with their other Saturday deliveries.)

    With my iPhone 5 I missed the UPS guy on Friday. They delivered it on Saturday.

    UPS normally doesn't deliver Sat. They must be making an exception.

    I'm in the same situation. Had email from Apple saying it would be delivered Saturday but order status on website saying Monday. Let me know if you get yours!

    I waited ALL day and night and 8pm rolled around and I had to leave.

    Of course the UPS truck comes at 8:30pm.... I'm not home and the note they leave on the door says they're gonna try again on MONDAY

    Freakin BS. I'm calling UPS now to see if there's any way I can just come in and pick it up tomorrow from them. But I bet they feed me a bunch of BS about how the phone is just sitting on the truck and they can't get to it.

    On the phone with UPS now because I'm pissed I waited ALL day and of course am busy after 8pm on a Friday night... which is so conveniently the time UPS driver finally rolls up to my empty house.

    She said some cities are doing SATURDAY RE-DELIVERY for those who did not receive their Apple iPhones today. Luckily, my city and zip code were among those cities and she confirmed that UPS will be re-delivering my iPhone tomorrow. I live in Dallas, so thankfully a large market.

    I imagine that was the same case for LA.

    I swear, it better be morning or afternoon tomorrow... I don't think I can wait until freaking 8pm on a Saturday!!!

    WOO just received mine from UPS

    Saturday at 10:30am... even though my online status said Monday.

    If you live in a large market, they're doing Saturday re-deliveries.
