Im not sure if anyone posted this yet or not. Chances are that if you Preordered your iPhone X within the first 10 mins on Thursday night then your iPhone X has already shipped and Apple has just not sent you a tracking number yet. Here is a way to track your iPhone X right now.

Go here and sign up for UPS My Choice.
https://www.ups.com/us/en/Home.page

Its free and it only requires you to add your name and address and I think it asks you to confirm your identity with a text message.

Once you are signed up, click on Tracking and then Click on Manage My Home Deliveries. Then a screen with a calendar will pop up. Go to November 3rd and you will probablly see that you have a shipment arriving that day from FOXCONN HONGFUJIN PRECISION CGO, CN - Click that Box.

Now at the top of the page you will see your tracking number. Copy it. Once Copied go to UPS or Google and enter the tracking number and you can see right now where your iPhone X is!

I figured I've been a member of Mac Rumors for 5 years now, I should at least contribute one post, lol.

My UPS is showing I should receive by end of day on the 3rd. I am happy Tmobile was realistic with their delivery dates, as I was definitely not one of the first to order. I was scrambling on the app/website at 3:00am for about an hour before I called it in.

PS- Looks like Tmo shipping from KY- Not Foxconn, as I assume those are customers that bought from Apple direct.

Though Apple's website still says:
Preparing to Ship Delivers 03 Nov, 2017 by Standard Shipping
Not eligible to cancel or return
Maybe you're getting Fedex this year

I thought that too and the case I ordered for the X is shipping Wednesday...by FedEx
You may want to change your post as clicking on the link I think gives out your order number which someone may misuse just to get a kick out of it.
