While some German customers appear to have been the first to receive deliveries of the iPhone 4S several days ahead of the official launch date of this Friday, it now appears that the premature deliveries are making their way to the United States. AppleInsider reports that one U.S. customer who ordered his iPhone 4S from Verizon has already received his shipment two days early.

Customers who pre-ordered the iPhone in the U.S. and other launch countries have been tracking their deliveries since shipment notices began going out over the weekend, hoping that delivery companies might slip up and offer early arrival of the devices. Apple typically coordinates with shipping services for delivery on the scheduled launch day, but occasionally some shipments have slipped through for early delivery.

Congratulations to the lucky one ....

... I still have to wait until Friday for my two white iPhones (at least for the AT&T Premium order I got the tracking number, but the apple page order still says 'preparing for shipment' ... still hoping to have both on Friday)

Sadly for me, mine says 'Dispatched: Ships by October 14th' - so it ships on the Friday, for some stupid annoying reason there isn't any deliveries on Saturdays or Sundays...meaning I should have it on Monday.

I saw the UPS guy parked in front of my house on the street yesterday and I saw this small box he was carrying out. I really got my hopes up there for a second but it was for my neighbor. But I did get the shipping notice today and I'm still on target for Friday, yay! :)

I really have to stop clicking the refresh button on the tracking number ... kills my productivity today (but it still has no tracking info, seems only the label is printed) .... hope it updates soon, don't want to click refresh every 10min until Friday :)
