    I grabbed this off the verizon forums and punched it in and it works..

    Head to the FedEx site and under reference number, enter your location code, followed by an underscore, followed by your order number. The order number needs to be 9 numbers long, so if your order number is less than 9 numbers, add 0's to make it 9 total numbers

    For example,when I went to fedex I entered under the reference number

    N210033_000000483 (numbers are made up, sorry I'm a bit of a privacy nerd)

    Then I entered my zip code and destination country, bam I got my tracking number and estimated delivery date of Monday.

    I've heard people say you can call verizon and request them to hold it at the fedex facility for pickup tomorrow, has anyone confirmed this?

    ETA - You need to enter the above described number as a reference number, not a tracking number.. It is also possible that your package shipped via UPS

    Thanks for this, but I tried and there's still no information for mine and when I called verizon they didn't have a tracking number either.

    Werd. I ordered 3 at midnight. All 3 are being shipped out of Ontario, CA. 2 via FedEx. The other one UPS.

    Go figure.

    I got tracking numbers for all 3 though.

    Interesting, what was your order number? Mine was 909, and if they ship from Ontario, CA that wouldn't be bad for me since that's only about 2 hours away.

    I just noticed it's pertinent to mention that you need to go to the area to track by reference number, the above listed method can not be used as a tracking number.

    Awesome tip sir, worked just fine for me on the Fedex website! Estimated delivery on Monday. I was getting worried as the "check order status" page on the Verizon website is down. ETA is 2/7/11. :D
