    How accurate is fedex 's ship dates. My phone is in china right now and it says it will deliver the 21st? This is a replacement. When i got my original it was shipped from china and i did receive it the next day delivery? but that was with UPS on release...should i just bank on tuesday, or do you think it will come tomorrow possibly, the apple rep said it was shipped express.

    Couriers like FedEx function like clockwork... their dates are almost always spot on.

    alright...so fedex said the delivery date was the 21st.(shipped on the 17th). I ve been watching the tracking info from fedex and its has been going through clearances at local facility in shenzhen, china since thursday. Today it said in transit, and the arrival date was gone...Anyone think i'll receive it today?

    Mine was delivered one day earlier then what it said. If it doesn't say "out for delivery" on their site, then don't count on it coming today.

    fedex tracking is a joke....now i know why apple used UPS on release date of the 3gs to guarantee the deliveries.

    mine is also in alaska, is got scanned in there at 9:45 pm tonite. im in NY and its 9:28 here...and alaska, i believe is 3hrs behind( am i wrong on this) but that would mean my shipment was scanned in the future already...whoa?

    edit:actually 4hrs behind...checked.

    I ordered mine on a Tuesday around 1am and received it next Wednesday around 2pm. It shipped overnight though from Fedex the night before. I checked my status probably over 100 times lol

    I hope that's the case with me. I'm waiting for an iPhone too and I really need it to arrive on the date it says it will.

    (love your signature btw :D)
