    Who cares? You will get it on Friday like what ALL of us know since last week. It's not like this is shocking news.

    It's called excitement. Don't be so up-tight, damn.

    We'll be seeing these threads for the rest of the week. Followed by:

    1. Is your screen yellow?
    2. Do your buttons rattle?
    3. Is there dust under your screen?
    4. Do your photos look off?
    5. etc, etc..

    It's part of the cyle each year. :D

    I'm sorry you don't have hobbies and live a miserable (lonely?) life. But I like to find the fun and adventure in even the smallest things. Apple and tech happen to be two of my hobbies and I think tracking them down is quite fun. If you don't care to be a part of this thread, get the hell out.

    I was wondering the same, but look at the times of entry into the USA. It's the same. I'm not sure why the information is showing up twice, but either way, it didn't go back to China.

    I've been quite curious on how to figure this all out (flights and such). Care to share how to track them down?

    And it's not that that's really a problem, it's just the duplicated threads that clutter and annoy the forum.

    LMAO! :p

    Not how to track a flight, though. How do I associate my package with a flight? How did you find out which one they were on? Thanks, btw!

    Why should he? Isn't this a public forum where people can agree or or disagree with others opinions? Because someone doesn't share your fascination with shipping packages, you infer they live a lonely miserable life? Here's a hint - I bet if you asked a hundred people about this thread, he wouldn't be the one most people think leads a lonely life...

    I'm guessing more iPhones (specifically Verizon) will start shipping late today and tomorrow since they're in the US.

    LOL...really? Maybe he has more things to do than worry about if his phone, that everyone knows will be here on Friday, has arrived in the USA on a Monday! Maybe your the one that needs to get a life! :rolleyes:

    Its like kids at Christmas in this thread.

    There's always one that wants to play hero. :rolleyes:

    I was about to go into detail with much justification but I just don't feel like it. I, along with many others, enjoy the period of tracking shipments following a product launch. Bottom line, telling someone to "Grow up for f*cks sake, it's just a phone" is NOT an opinion, it's an attack. Run along now.

    Fixed that for you. And if he has "more things to do", why is he harassing people trying to enjoy the excitement of a new product? Just stop.

    Correct, yes, ...I am the one who needs a life reading YOUR thread by checking packages that the iPhones have crossed the border into the USA :rolleyes:

    You will get it on on Friday. There is however a thread simlar to this already with about 22 pages.
